Lynn Viehl-- "Shadowlight"

A novel of the Kyndred
With just one touch, Jessa Bellamy can see anyone's darkest secrets, thanks to whoever tampered with her genes. What she doesn't know is that a biotech company called GenHance has discovered her talent, and intends to kill her and harvest her DNA. When GenHance is poised to strike, Gaven Matthias is forced to take action. After months of tracking Jessa, he abducts her himself so he can protect others like her, but Jessa has a hard time believing the one man whose secrets she can't read. She senses he's hiding a terrible truth, and yet his touch ignites a passion she's never know. As a monstrous assassin closes in and forces them on the run, Jessa will have to find another way to discover whether Matthias is her greatest ally....or her deadliest enemy.I

***This story started off confusing, it didn't seem to flow. But about 100 pages into it, it all made sense. It is not a very romantic story, but this is the first in this series, so there was a lot of "set up" that had to happen for the rest of the series. I liked it, didn't love it as i did the Darkyn series, but some of the Darkyn play minor roles in this series as well. I WILL be waiting for the next installment.
