Genre: Paranormal Romance
Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She’s tested her abilities and found them limitless.
She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.
Theodore Ramsey isn’t supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.
Theo is the one.
He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.
Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.
She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.
“Do you want me to go so you can swim alone,” he asked facing the waves. He knew me too well.
“No. I want to know what we’re going to do about this.”
His expression grew hard. “We will do nothing. I will do more research and eventually I will need to tell the Synod.”
Research meant finding the other keepers of the histories—and maybe even speaking to some of the Prophets. Long ago, before the Lucents had a Synod, there were Prophets. Their words were gold and their wisdom infallible. But finally, some Lucents began to think they had too much power and insisted on having a council.
My grandmother had been one of them—still was.
“Let’s go see Grammy first and then we decide.”
Still as a statue he stood, and then bellowed out a hefty breath. “Since when is there a we, Colby?”
I deserved that sting and all its aftershocks. Nightly, daily, and sometimes hourly I had to remind myself of why there wasn’t a we. And yet, here I was, calling us we again.
It felt like freedom.
“There has always been and will always be a we as long as we live, Theo.”
I almost hoped he hadn’t heard my answer. If he had, he provided no outward response. The waves became louder and louder as they crashed closer to us both.
“It’s too dangerous,” he began our banter. It was useless on his part. I’d never lost an argument. He was too soft. Always had been.
“I love danger.”
He turned to face me. “There are Resin on my tail—always.”
“Mine too. They like to look at my ass as I flash away.”
“You are so stubborn. You’re not going with me!” He growled through a clenched jaw.
I shrugged with my left shoulder, and my left eyebrow followed suit. “That’s fine. I’ll just follow you. You forget—I’m a seeker as well.”
