Prodigal Son by Debra Mullins

A bounty hunter and a computer geek team up to save the geek's wayward, ne're do well brother. 

This book does a nice job blending the occult with action adventure and some romanticism.   Rafe Montana's character is fraught with guilt and fear over his inner demons.   Cara Mc Gaffigan is filled with self doubt and weak self esteem.   The author does a nice job portraying emotions and feelings that are believable based on the novels circumstances.

There are some steamy scenes that probably put this book into the romantic category but the action and general story are certainly palatable to the male reader.  No, that is not a sexist remark, that is an observation that most guys won't admit to reading an kind of romantic novel.  I do not categorize this book as a romantic novel.  I think it is a good action/adventure/urban fantasy with romantic overtones.  Huh!  How's that for a description.  

Oh, the occult relates to survivors of Atlantis and their innate powers.  Ms. Mullins uses Basque for her Atlantis language which was a nice, realistic touch. 

I am hoping this will be a continuing series.  The book was easy to read, captivating and entertaining.

I recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
