A sizzling story of a woman who risks her life and her heart to find a wealthy man’s missing sister—the first novel in a sexy new romantic suspense series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks.

When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, this scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot.

While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.

Deeply remorseful for the pain he’s caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie's vanished forever, she reappears. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Now, Caleb will do risk everything to protect her—including his heart. . . .

My Thoughts:

Keep Me Safe is Maya Banks' newest novel in her new series, Slow Burn. I've read a great deal of Banks' books but I have to say that Keep Me Safe stands out to me as one of her most unique works.  Keep Me Safe centers around Ramie, a young psychic who helps solve crimes by locating missing girls. However, her gift/curse takes a huge toll on her emotionally and physically.  In order to find the missing girls, Ramie must put herself inside of their mind and experience all of the pain and suffering they are.

Ramie is going through the motions of her lonely life until she crushes the plans of a serial killer. When he realizes how fun it would be to toy with and then destroy Ramie he sets his sights on her. Ramie tries disappearing off of the grid, but running and hiding does no good as the killer has psychic abilities of his own. In a surprising twist, the killer manages to play an extremely demented cat and mouse game with Ramie. He has the patience to make her feel safe while tracking her for a year and waiting for the perfect moment.  His end goal is her gruesome death.

After a close call with the killer, Ramie manages to escape but has run out of places to run and people to turn to. She has no friends, money, or belongings. She literally has no other options but to turn herself over to the killer. However, Ramie realizes that there is someone she can contact- Caleb Devereaux, a powerful man whom owes her a favor after she located his kidnapped sister. Afraid that the killer is going to win, Ramie enlists Caleb to help her. 

Caleb does everything in his power to keep Ramie safe and catch the dangerous criminal mastermind. Throughout their dangerous and twisted journey, Ramie and Caleb did not count on falling in love. The killer is thrilled when he realizes that another person's happiness is in play.  He is only too happy to bring about the destruction of the lovers. 

Keep Me Safe, by Maya Banks, is an extremely fast paced novel with

many surprising twists and turns. It has an abundance of romance, intrigue, and suspense.  If you are looking for a spine tingling new read then Banks' Keep Me Safe is the book for you! I am impatiently waiting for the next book in the Slow Burn series, In His Keeping, which will come out in January 2015.
