"Penance" by Sharon Sala - Nicole Masters' 'penance' for cheating death, a second sight that allows her insight into oncoming disasters, dictates that she must help others; even if it means putting herself in danger. Now she and Detective Dominic Tucci, a neighbour determined to make Nicole accept her new gift, must team up to rescue an innocent child before time runs out.
"After the Lightning" by Janis Reams Hudson - Hailey Cameron fears she's fried more than a few brain cells after she's struck by lightning and begins hearing voices. Experience has made former police detective Aaron Trent more accepting of this newfound ability than Hailey is. But has fate brought them together for another reason as well?
"Seeing Red" by Debra Cowan - A near-death experience has firefighter Cass Hollister witnessing fires before they happen. But it's proving harder to deal with Ben, the man she once walked away from, who is now investigating the blazes and has a few dark secrets of his own, than it is to handle her new talent!
"A Kiss of Frost" by Michele Hauf - Norse god and assassin Jal Frosti's latest assignment targets a mortal woman for termination. Yet, Kate's kisses warm Jal's frozen heart and he falls in love - and emotion is a bane that can bring the Winter god's death.
"Ice Bound" by Vivi Anna - On a special mission to Japan, Dr. Darien Calder hopes to learn more about the legendary Ice Maiden, who purportedly froze lost travellers with just a touch of her icy lips. But when she rescues him from a snowdrift, will the warmth of Darien's newfound love be enough to thaw the Ice Maiden's heart?
