Out of Sight, Court of Angels, Book Three by Stella Cameron

Publisher: Mira/Harlequin Enterprises
Pages: 400

From the Cover:

Psychic master talent Sykes Millet can vanish at will, read minds and control others with hypnosis. What Sykes cannot do is escape his destiny - an ancient curse foretelling the misery his dark beauty may bring to everyone he loves.

Poppy Fortune knows all too well the burden of having paranormal talent. The supernatural world has fractured her entire family - now it's keeping at bay the one man she wants more than life.

Driven by hatred for the Millets, a killing force has attacked New Orleans. The evil Embran race has no conscience and intends to terrorize the city into submission. Sykes and Poppy must set aside old distrust and use their bonded talents to save their families, themselves - and New Orleans.

Poppy Fortune has a lot to make up for.  First she almost sabotaged the burgeon romance between her brother, Ben, and his new wife, Willow.  Even after their bonding, she still didn't believe Willow had the power to match Ben's.  She tried to make amends, but it's an impossible sin to forgive, at least in her mind.

Sykes, Willow's older brother and Ben's best friend, has been a thorn in Poppy's side.  He shows her disdain for her misdeeds, but there's more to his emotions than meets the eye.  At the first brush of their hands, electricity erupts, grabbing Poppy's attention.

Sykes remembers Poppy from years of growing up along side the Fortunes, Ben's troublesome little sister.  But, now Sykes has had his fill of Millet problems, Millet destinies, and Millet's mentor, Jude, who brought the Millet curse to Sykes shoulders.  Now, all Sykes wants is to find a woman he can be himself with, he wants what others have found.  Poppy brings a new realization into his life.  She's all grown up and enticing as ever.

Out of Sight by Stella Cameron continues the Court of Angels Series.  Sykes is the oldest of the Millet children, now abandoned by their parents who are searching for the answer to the curse the Millet's have endured and having left Uncle Pascal in place as the lead of the family, a position that should have been Sykes by all rights.  He's the oldest child in the family, but he's also the only one cursed, Jude Millet's curse of the dark hair and blue eyes, all the other Millets have the legendary red hair.  Sykes thinks the curse is nonsense and so does Pascal, if the truth is known, and Pascal would like nothing better than to turn the reins of the burgeoning family over to Sykes capable hands. Pascal has his own problems to contend with, including a night of indiscretion in his wayward youth.  But, the Embran, the creatures that would like to take over in this realm, also have to be dealt with, and it will take all the families working together to overcome the formidable foe.  The Embran who are gradually disseminating and infecting their host bodies.  It is only through finding the Harmony that the families can defeat the Embran, and only Sykes has the ability that they need.

Out of Sight was another exceptional read from Stella Cameron who combines mystery, mayhem, psychic ability and a sensual romance all together in one book.  This is Poppy and Sykes' story.  Sykes, the long suffering true head of the Millet family and our enduring hero, and Poppy, the youngest of the Fortunes, deceived by her brothers into thinking she has the least of abilities and our heroine in this tale.  Sykes has been searching for someone to complete his life and he really doesn't give Poppy a second look as the young sister of his best friend, Ben.  But while Sykes has been searching, Poppy has grown up and come into her own.  Now, he's having trouble denying the attraction and sparks that flow between their bodies.  The question is, if Sykes takes the course laid before him by Millet mentor, Jude, will he ever find anyone else to fill the niche Poppy so completely fills?  Will he ever locate the keys that will open the Harmony?  And will the Embran take over New Orleans in the process?

Out of Sight was an excellent read and I'll be looking for more from Stella Cameron.  If you enjoy a little magical psychic ability with your mayhem and a sensual romance to boot, check the Court of Angels Series.  Excellent paranormal romance/fantasy reading to be enjoyed by all.

I received this book from the publisher, Harlequin Enterprises, and Net Galley for review.  All opinions I have expressed are my own.

Hi Michelle!

I've enjoyed this series (though I haven't read Out of Body yet, LOL, as much as I hate reading a series out of order...). I think you'll enjoy this one too.

Hi B!

I've had a serious lack of blogging mojo, felt crappy, and having my normal summer craziness with three kids headings in three different directions and one car to share between them!! LOL No way am I buying another car, so that means lots of travel and no internet connection. Sometimes sitting in the car for two hours with nothing to do, and the lack of mojo extends to reading too. Hope I get back on track soon.

Hi Lea!

I feel kind of guilty about not blogging, but I'm just not feeling the love right now, LOL! Maybe I'll find my groove... Maybe not... LOL!

I hope you enjoy Out of Sight, heat level can be steamy, quite steamy, but a good psychic story too.

((hugs sweetie))

Hi EH!

The Court of Angels Series (Out of Body, Out of Mind, and Out of Sight) are all about the Millet family, set in New Orleans (which I love) and are all psychics. It a fun little series and for me anyway, reads quickly. I'll be looking at Stella Cameron's backlist to see what else she writes.

Hope you get a chance to try them!

Dottie :)
