Debunking paranormal phenomena is practically a calling for Jack Stevens, and when he sees people getting suckered in by psychics and charlatans, his blood really boils. Growing up with a mother who did tarot readings was not even enough to shake his faith that there is a logical explanation for just about every incident.
Life would be so much easier for Casey Lambeth if he were just a normal guy, but nothing has been normal for him since he was ten. His mother’s death and subsequent reappearance in his life brought with it the realization that he is a medium, and with his help those who are bound to this plane can finally move on.
Jack likes to help people explain away the things that go bump in the night, but when he takes a job in Wisconsin, he is the one taking the bumps. Never before in his life has Jack experienced this type of force, and if it were not for Casey showing up, he probably would not be alive to tell about it. The animosity Jack feels for Casey’s abilities, and his unexpected attraction to the younger man, proves to be a battle he is ill equipped to fight. However, it is certainly not one-sided as Casey lashes out at Jack, terrified of one more rejection. When the walls come down, will either man be strong enough to pick up the pieces?
Some people are born skeptics, and this is the story of one man’s journey to enlightenment. Jack never believed, not even as a child, but you can literally feel how hard he battles to hold on to that belief. His struggles to bury his grief makes your heart ache for him, and Casey is his conduit to finally finding peace. The romance is minimal, but the strength and stability they provide for each other fills this story with caring and respect.
