Synopsis: Two damaged people with harrowing pasts, one with deadly visions of the future—both must confront their deepest fears before they lose themselves and each other.

Kidnapped by human monsters, Grace Thorne was ripped from her quiet intellectual life and left deeply scarred. She’s hidden herself for five years, but there’s no escape from the nightmares of the past, or visions of the future. When one foretells tragedy, she gambles her fragile defenses on a haunted man to prevent it—only to discover love is the biggest risk of all.

Jack Daggery doesn’t need a mirror to know why people avoid him, but he doesn’t really care. After years working deep undercover, immersed in betrayal and death, all he wants is some peace and the quiet security company he co-owns.

Dagger has no idea why the foul-mouthed little server of questionable gender bothers him. But he does know that living with the ghosts of his past was hard enough without being tormented by the mysterious thorn in his side—or finding how much he needs her.

Review: Grace Thorne is a woman who has survived the most horrifying torture anyone can imagine. So terrible that grown men who have been through war are nauseated by the reports. Now she lives only as Thorne, androgynous as to not call attention to herself, and a certified computer genius. When her visions bring her to the attentions of Blackridge Security and she's offered a job. Only the boss knows who she really is and she can live with that, even if she doesn't like it. Jack Daggery - known internationally only as Dagger - is drawn to Thorne, even if he doesn't know why. Will Dagger open up to someone for the first time, can Thorne let a man past her myriad defenses, and can they solve Blackridge Security's cases in time?

Finding Grace is a wonderful and heartfelt story. Laughing and crying, I did not want to put this book down! Ms. Rhodan brings true emotion to the surface through her flowing words and bold characters. While parts of Thorne's history are heartbreaking, the descriptions aren't a gore-fest which is nice. A touching tale of the paths both Thorne and Dagger follow to discover the true Grace.


  1. Thank you so much for the kind review! I'm glad you enjoyed the book.

  2. Oh, and I REALLY appreciate that you posted your review on both Amazon and Goodreads. Very thoughtful and helpful. Best wishes, to you, too, Star!

  3. A psychologist I know describes working with torture victims as the least he can do; more importantly, he tries to get them to a place where they find peace from within themselves. Your book is a must read on my list for 2012. Thanks for hosting, Star!
