In the small town of Unknown, Louisiana, there lives a large family with golden eyes and black hair. They have secrets they are unwilling for outsiders to discover, but how far would they go to protect those secrets?
Abandoned as a baby, Anna has a clue to her family history, but her plans to uncover more are hampered when she is drugged and kidnapped by a serial killer. She believes her mental communications with an angry and frantic sounding man to be a result of the drugs, but she still mentally recites any clues she can uncover as to her whereabouts.
Gabriel has received mental images of the woman he loves throughout his life, but as he waits for her to come to him he grows resentful and angry, unaware that he has connected with Anna who has no knowledge of the abilities found in her family; yes she too has black hair and golden eyes.
Anna is soon caught up in the mystery of her parentage, the strange powers her family reveal and the knowledge that someone will kill to guard their secrets. Although there isn't as much romance as I anticipated, "Veiled Eyes" is an exciting paranormal thriller that starts with a bang, introduces an unexpected twist that took me totally by surprise and finishes with a tense action filled finale. Book 2 of this series; "Disembodied Bones", will definitely be added to my TBR pile.
