Book Blurb:

Can a jinni and a warlock cook up a better way to help the poor?

Dexter Graham has no trouble making money as a financial wizard—as long as he doesn’t leave his home. He finds it nearly impossible to be with other people, because he’s a telepath who gets swamped by their thoughts. Prompted by an unexpected visitor from the past who reveals shocking family secrets, he takes a risk and visits his brother in Cat’s Paw Cove. Will the trip make things better or worse?

Ynez Saghira is a gifted chef at the Feline Fine Retirement Home who yearns to be financially independent and open her own café. She has lots of talent and creative ideas but lacks the capital to start her own business. What’s a poor imp to do?

Dexter and Ynez join forces to quiet the voices in his head, build her business, and ferret out family mysteries. Will the secrets draw them closer together or push them apart?

My Review:

Multi-Millionaire Dexter Graham hasn’t left his home in years. Why? He’s a powerful telepath and when he’s around others, he can hear every thought they have. It gets overwhelming, at times. When he gets a surprise visit from his beloved grandmother’s ghost, she urges him to pack a few things and head to Cat’s Paw Cove to reunite with his brother, Dylan. He arrives and meets Ynez, a jinni and a brilliant chef. The attraction is immediate, and the best part is that Dexter can’t hear her thoughts. As Dexter and Dylan explore their magical heritage, danger stalks Ynez. Can Dexter protect her from an unseen enemy, or will he be too late?

Taken by the Imp is a delightful paranormal romance filled with quirky characters, intrigue plus a great message on helping those less fortunate. The hero and heroine are opposites yet when they’re together, their strengths balance their weaknesses. The character's development adds depth to the plot while the paranormal sub-plot blends nicely with the understated romance. I loved reconnecting with the characters from Cat’s Paw Cove, especially Charley and Dylan. While this is a quick read, it allows the reader to escape for an afternoon. If you’re looking to escape everyday life, take a trip to Cat’s Paw Cove in Taken by the Imp. Highly recommend!
