Lightning Rider - a paranormal romance book by Maree Anderson

Lightning Rider

Third place: Utah Romance Writers “Heart of the West” award, paranormal category

When Andie Brennan signs up for a Slickrock Bike Trail tour in an attempt to rekindle her love of the outdoors she meets Jake Knight. Jake’s generous, down-to-earth, and gorgeous to boot. He could just be her soul mate… except she’s already got a boyfriend, and Andie doesn’t do cheating. But before she can fully explore why the sound of Jake’s voice and his crooked smile make her feel happier than she’s been in years, death strikes in a searing instant, sizzling a few million neurons and arresting her heart.

Andie wakes up in hospital. Her injuries are completely healed and her recovery is being touted as a miracle. Only trouble is she can’t remember a damn thing about her past—not even her name. Nor is she exactly whooping with joy at her second chance at life because there’s a voice inside her head claiming to be a Lightning Rider Elemental named Karylon. And boy, does it take one heckuva lot of fast talking for Karylon to convince Andie that she’s real—that Andie is not insane, and she really is hosting an alien.

Can a damaged young woman find the courage to escape her manipulative boyfriend and grasp the happiness she deserves? With the help of Jake, and the alien Lightning Rider trapped inside her, you betcha! But the omniscient Keeper of Portents has the future of the Lightning Rider Elemental race in its sights. The Keeper has already used Karylon to further its grand design and it has no qualms about using Karylon’s Lightning Rider lover, Novik, too.

How much is Novik prepared to risk to be with Karylon again? And more importantly for Andie and Jake, who is The Keeper prepared to sacrifice?
