Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Blurb:

To save her dying sister…

Lillian Milano channels energy from the healthy to heal the sick, which makes her an incredible nurse. But her gift puts Lillian and those she loves in danger from an organization that will stop at nothing to exploit her talent. When her sister becomes gravely ill, wealthy computer genius Tristan King is the one man with enough vitality to save her sister’s life. But being near him threatens to expose her secrets and destroy the walls she’s built around her heart.

She bargains with a billionaire.

Tristan doesn’t believe in the supernatural and is wary of emotional entanglements. But his beloved mother is dying, and his lying ex-fiancée won’t leave him alone, so he strikes a deal: In exchange for his help, Lillian must pose as his date for a hospital fundraiser. As the pair work together to save their loved ones, they confront a spiraling web of secrets that threatens their growing feelings for each other. The choices they make will either destroy their lives or heal their hearts.

Healing Kiss won first place in the paranormal category of the 2021 Rudy and 2021 The Far Side contests. It won second place in the 2019 Diamonds in the Desert Contest.

My Review:

She’ll do anything to save her sister…but she never bargained on falling in love. In Amanda Uhl’s new release, we delve into some modern themes with a paranormal twist. I can admit I was hooked from the very first page. The world-building, characters, romance, and plot twists blend together to make Healing Kiss an unputdownable read.

It all starts with the world-building. Like her other books, Healing Kiss explores gifted supernatural humans being exploited by a government agency. In this particular book, there’s a lot at stake for Lillian. The world-building is brilliant and multi-layered. Every aspect is detailed which makes for excellent reading.

The characters are written with precision. Amanda Uhl shares only what she wants a reader to know at that particular moment. The rest is revealed slowly as the story progresses. I enjoy this style of characterization because it keeps the reader invested in what’s going on.

The romance is beautifully written. It’s a mashup of different tropes (billionaire and PNR) yet honestly portrayed. While the attraction is immediate, there’s a slow build-up to the relationship. The romance unfolds realistically and with plenty of emotion. My heart swooned at times and the ending is wondrous.

If you’re a paranormal romance reader, you need to read this award-winning book. If you like your romance full of emotion and a touch of paranormal, this book is for you.
