Waiting on Wednesday – Touched

October 17, 2012

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m choosing Touched by Corrine Jackson. I haven’t read this author before but Touched sounds interesting.

Touched – Corrine Jackson

Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll becoming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

    The more I see this one the more I want it! I love books about a healing touch although it would suck if you would have to take the injuries upon yourself!

    Hey, now this sounds interesting! It vaguely reminds me of the mythology surrounding Chiron, which has long fascinated me. Healing others but taking on wounds of your own. Great pick this week, Adina!

    Sounds great! Her healing touch and taking on the inflictions reminds me of Stephen King’s The Green Mile. Thanks for sharing! 😀
