Blurb: Pride will be the death of him.

When psychic Nate Coleman dreams of a murder, he knows it’s a premonition. He can’t forget the image of his ex-lover with a bullet hole through his chest. Nate has no choice but to confront William and face the skeptical scientist’s ridicule.

Dr. William Ryner doesn’t believe in what he can’t prove. When Nate comes back into his life, it’s not to rekindle their love, but to bring up more of that mumbo jumbo that split them apart.

Despite William’s refusal to listen, Nate can’t ignore the premonition. And, William can’t ignore Nate. Before the gunman strikes, William must either trust in Nate’s ability or rely only on the facts, but if he does the latter, pride could be the death of him.

Review: Nate is psychic and has a nightmare that leads him back to his ex-lover William, William the man he has never gotten over but a man he couldn’t live with because of his scorn for Nate’s ability. Nate knows he has to help, but how can he help a man who refuses to believe in the improvable? William is a scientist who doesn’t believe in something that he can’t prove, when his ex-lover comes to him telling him an outlandish tale where his life is in danger he just doesn’t know what to do, but seeing Nate again awakens his feelings for the man, but how can William see his way to believing in what Nate does?

This is quite a good little short with some really hot office sex ;-). Nate and William parted way years before because of William being able to believe in Nate’s psychic ability, they loved each other but neither man was willing to budge so Nate left. Now, years later Nate has a premonition of William being shot and does everything he can to make William listen. William can’t believe in psychics, it has never been scientifically proven, so he treated Nate badly, but now, with Nate back in his life he realizes that his pride was stopping them from being together.

I quite enjoyed this story of what seems like star-crossed lovers, who love each other but the lack of belief from one causes them to be apart. I liked both characters and also liked the fact that neither would bend on their principles even if it drove them apart, but the fact that one of them would later admit that it might have been more about his pride and that it was that which kept them apart was a good way for them to be able to reconcile and kept it more believable. The office scene was hot and showed that even after years apart they can’t keep their hands off each other and that the flame between them was still as strong as it had ever been.

I will recommend this to those who love psychics, scientists, changing beliefs, reconnecting love, hot office sex and a happy ending.
