Jacquelyn Frank-- "Hunting Julian" (The Gatherers)

As a Gatherer for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen, women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he's encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra; his one true mate. For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he's behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other woman. She believes he's a ruthless killer, but she discovers that the truth is far more shocking. Taken to a strange, hazardous realm she never knew existed, Asia will face the ultimate choice--between abandoning the life she's always known, and forsaking a passion as dangerous as it is powerful.

***Jacquelyn Frank has quite an imagination. She creates worlds beyond anything i have ever read. This is the 3rd such world she has created. The first was the Nightwalkers, second was the Shadowdwellers (my favorite), and now the Gatherers. At first this book is a little confusing, it's hard to follow when you have no idea anything about the world it involves. But once you get the hang of it, Julian and Asia come together. They are both stubborn, willful, and in love with each other. They are just trying to figure it out (the hard way of course) while Asia is trying to understand how to live in a world no one could imagine, where she was brought without her permission. She has no way home to her Earth plane. So she must come to accept and understand all of this while they are tested over and over again, and somehow their passion for each other brings them back to the basics of loving each other. I think Frank has another hit on her hands.
