Warriors of the Cross by T.R. Graves

If you are looking for a fresh paranormal romance thriller, Warriors of the Cross delivers.  I found the summary of this book to be intriquing.  Allison La Crosse is a resident doctor who was born and raised in a big family full of love in LA.  She gets her residency at a University Hospital in Galveston, TX and moves there by finding a room to rent sight unseen.  When she arrives she meets Clark her landlord who is a medical malpractice lawyer and has an instant connection with him.  Clark makes Allie feel as though she has known him her whole life and they fall into an instant friendship. At her residency, she has the stereotypical mean girls and one very hot chief resident, Brody.  Allie met Brody as he stormed out of Clark's just as she arrived in Galveston.  Brody is extremely attractive and sets Allie afire with intense looks and alternatingly avoiding her. 
Besides the Romance, there are many layers to this intriguing plot.  It takes place in a hospital and there are medical patients and cases coming and going like a really good episode of ER.  The descriptions are both realistic and enthralling.  It really reads well and I didn't want to put it down.  When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about the characters and plot.  There begins to be a mysteriousness surrounding Allie's dreams and strange healing abilities.  She seems to take on the patient's symtoms and therefore suffers with each healing.  Brody helps her through and Clark is the ever present friend.  There are several clues about the real struggle than is the underlying plot of good and evil going on such as shadows, pulsing bright radiant light, and ornate crosses.  This books is so good I refuse to ruin it with any other spoilers about the plots.  For me this is one of those books that once your find out the secrets it is so illuminating that you want to go back and re-read the book to see it from an enlightened prospective.  I can wait to read the next book.  I can only hope it won't be too long of a wait.  For a limited time, this is a free book on Kindle and definitely worth putting on your to read list.  You will not be disappointed.
