No matter how far she runs, she can't escape…
Changing the past is an impossibility ex-Marine, Cynthia "Cyn" Arden, understands all too well. Struggling in the aftermath of a botched mission, which cost her two teammates, her military career, and a fledging relationship, she's brought home by a panicked phone call. The psychic killer behind her nightmares has escaped military custody to hunt down the remaining teammates, one by one. Next on his murderous list—Cyn. Her only chance at survival is to master the psychic ability she's spent years denying.
Unless she finds a way to trust the one who walked away…
The killer's game brings her face to face with the one person guaranteed to throw her off kilter—the unsettling and distracting man she left behind, Kayden Shaw. Once she believed he'd stand by her side, until he chose his job and his secrets over her. A choice that's left the scars of the past etched deep on her mind and heart.
To win this twisted game, Cyn must risk trusting her heart and accepting who and what she is, or lose not only her life, but the man she loves.

Jami Gray just got marked on my watch list!
What a terrific romance novel, straight up, not erotic, but enough to still have your heart racing. Ms. Gray added the perfect amount of everything...not too much humor, not too serious, not an over abundance of sex, but just the perfect amount of romance and action. There is simply no way anyone who enjoys reading this genre could be disappointed with this book!
I am still not sure that the cover of HUNTED BY THE PAST does justice to Kayden. I have read thousands of books and around page 270 or so, there is a scene in the book that is one of the hottest I have ever read. Ms. Gray did not get overly bold with her words, but her particular descriptive way of writing intimate scenes and Kayden was sheer talent. After reading this epic novel, I have to say that with the author's writing style, she would kick serious butt in a shifter series!

HUNTED BY THE PAST is the first book in the Psy-IV series (pronounced cipher), and from the first page you are introduced into a world of the military and psychics, which is not the usual combination!
Cyn was injured in a mission gone wrong, but when it comes up for trial, the rest of her team leave her hanging. This obviously upsets her, and she leaves, trying to put as much physical and emotional distance between her and them as she can. That works for so long, but then things take a turn for the worse, and she is thrust back into their lives, whether she wants to be or not. So now they are trying to catch a sociopathic killer before he kills again, as well as Cyn trying to figure out just who she can trust again.
This is brilliantly written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. It is absolutely action-packed, from the very beginning right through to the end. This story is wrapped up nicely, whilst still leaving the door open for plenty of other stories too. The characters are in-depth and well-rounded, with tension (both normal and sexual) between our two main characters from the word go. It was nice to see that although they had a prior relationship, they still took things slowly this time around. And you could actually see when Cyn's walls started to crack.
Excellent writing. With a whole slew of talents, abilities, and names, there is plenty here to get your teeth into. I've thoroughly enjoyed this one, and I'm looking forward to the next. Definitely recommended by me.
