A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift—and reignite a love long thought lost…
Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth—that she alone can hear the creatures’ voices. She’s always trusted her sixth sense… until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center.
Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she’ll have to fight for her life… and the man she will always love.

I am not sure why but I have found in some series that the second book will lag. I will end up reading just so I can get to the next book. I am so happy to report that HEAT OF THE MOMENT is not such a book. If anything, this book is better then the first book.
I tend to be drawn to any book about animals and one where the heroine can actually talk to them. I am so there. I love the character of Becca. She is just that tad different and not quite sure why she doesn't fit with the rest of the family but she is really happy with her choice of profession.
She had grown up with Owen and fallen in love with him before he up and left. She's never gotten over his departure though neither has he. They run back into each other at the scene of animal sacrifices.
I found that I enjoyed this book much more then the first. It's not any longer but Becca and Owen have a history which helps to explain the swiftness at which their relationship develops. There was some great dialogue, instances of male pride, sexual chemistry and danger. What more could a reader desire?
I do recommend this book to any of my readers who enjoy paranormal romance. It's a quick read and now is the perfect time to pick up all three so you can just go from one book to another..
