Product Description

From USA Today Bestselling Author, L. j. Charles:
Everly Gray's fingers are a magnet for trouble.

When she touches photographer Mitchell Hunt and sees the image of a dead body, she dives into the murder fingertips first. Life takes a turn for the dangerous when she discovers the body is related to a small-time crime family that accidentally stepped on the toes of notorious criminal, Delano West. Caught in a web of intrigue where nothing is as it seems, El discovers an aptitude for breaking and entering, the pain of an up close and personal meeting with a bullet, and the terror of facing a cold blooded killer. What she doesn't learn--to keep her fingers to herself.

About the Author

I have worked with energy both as a yoga instructor and as a body worker for many years. When I left that profession, I was driven to write about energy and the paranormal. Many of the situations my heroines experience are created from my own encounters with energy, its power and possibilities. As to the "writing," well, that started when I was eight and penned my first book on pink construction paper with a purple crayon. It was a romance that involved a princess, and although I remember very few details about the plot, I do remember that it was illustrated and there was music and dancing involved. At about the same time I created my first story, I discovered Nancy Drew and my love for reading was born. It has only grown over the years, and I am rarely without a huge to-be-read stack, and a book within easy reach. Now days I write women's fiction and young adult novels. All of my stories combine romance, mystery, and paranormal elements. The paranormal, because it's a huge part of my life, the adventure and romance because I haven't ever outgrown my early reading adventures with Nancy, Ned, Bess and George. I live in the frozen north with my husband, whose TBR stack is taller than mine, and two felines who have been known to add entire pages to a manuscript without telling me

4.0 out of 5 stars A captivating romantic suspense Oct. 13 2011
By Wendy L. Hines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Everly Gray has ESP fingers. Everything she touches, material items and people, gives her a glimpse of something in the past, the present or the future. She doesn't date much because her dates usually end in disaster when they touch her and she 'sees' something disturbing that turns her off.

Her best friend, Violet, is a private investigator. Violet knows about Everly's gift but not many others do. When Everly has a bad vision about herself as an old woman in a rocking chair, they go to the beach to walk it off, but someone is taking photographs. Everly decides to introduce herself to the man, and Violet asks questions about why he's photographing them. His name is Mitchell Hunt and he's just staying busy, trying to forget the memory of seeing his best friend murdered the night before.

They talk, and he asks Everly out on a date. She explains about her ESP fingers but he doesn't seem worried, although he does hire Violet to investigate the murder. He knows he is a person of interest, and he wants the real killer found. However, after their date, Everly gets a phone call about Mitch being missing.
Everly and Violet search Mitch's house and Everly gets visions of Mitch being brutalized by three men. He's alive, but she doesn't know where they took him. Fortunately, Mitch is dropped off at a hospital hours later, but Everly still can't shake the visions of the men. She convinces Violet to investigate the matter further.

Everly convinces Violet to help her break into Tony's house - the murdered friend of Mitch. Everly's gift is changing; she can see the visions without even touching anything. Her mind tears magazines and makes a collage on its own, and she can't shake the thought that diamonds are involved, even though Violet can't use that information in any shape or form.

Everly and Mitch begin a sweet romance, and between the three of them they try to uncover the real killer. But when danger comes for Everly, will her ESP fingers get her out of it, or will she die with regrets like she saw in her vision?

A TOUCH OF ICE is a suspense-filled romance that will keep you up late turning the pages. Everly and Violet make perfect partners in their sleuthing, complementing one another perfectly. The romance between Mitch and Everly is sweet and blossoms into something spicy and wonderful. The mystery twists and turns, keeping this reader thoroughly entertained, trying to figure out the clues. Romantic suspense readers won't want to miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, as expected Sept. 21 2011
By Susan McAllen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've come to have certain expectations when I pick up a book by Ms. Charles. Humor, mystery, edge-of-your-seat action, delving into the paranormal in a way that is easy to accept. It's all here in spades, along with that trademark voice that I can't get enough of. The characters here are easy to latch onto and the story will keep you reading as fast as you can. Definitely give this one a go. You won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it but it's really awful. Nov. 4 2012
By Menagerie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't like writing negative reviews, but I have to say something about this book. It's absolutely awful. I really liked the premise and with all the good reviews here, I was prepared to have a whole new series to read. Either those people were reading a different book or they are friends of the author. The writing here is sophomoric at best. I get that she wants to combine mystery, paranormal AND romance, but by the time we got to his eyes becoming "ebony pools," I was ready to hurl. If you want to write a bodice-ripper then write one, but don't try to combine it with a paranormal mystery. Then I started seeing contextual errors; it's evening, no it morning, no it's the next morning. What?

The characters are more caricatures, the plot has huge holes, and the writing is poor. A stern editor and a serious re-write could make this a good book, but as it stands, skip it.

1.0 out of 5 stars wiggly and lame Nov. 3 2013
By Nela - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everly has a skill to touch people and see things about them, Violet is a PI and her best friend. There's suddenly a hot guy that Everly cares about half in love...then every other page Everly feels driven or a compulsion to help this guy but his friend was murdered and...blah blah blah. Every page half of the writing is devoted to you knowing that Everly is scared or her knees feel like "gummy worms" or whatnot. I got this when it was free, I would not recommend this book....unless you want to try it for free but even then, it's not worth the time I spent reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Touch Of Ice March 1 2012
By megordon/texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Different. Interesting. I'd like it better if the sex scenes weren't quite so graphic. Knowing the characters had sex and enjoyed it is all well and good, but I really don't need a blow by blow description of exactly what they did. I DO have an imagination. What's with Pierce and the ending?
