Everything Emma Thompson owns fits in a suitcase she moves from one roach infested motel to another. She and Jake, her five year old son who can see the future, are running from the men intent on taking him. Emma will do anything to protect him even when it means accepting the help of a stranger named Will. Jake insists she needs Will, but Emma's never needed help before. And even though she's learned to trust her son, it doesn't mean she trusts Will. 

Mercenary Will Davenport lives in the moment. Hauling Emma to South Dakota should have been an easy job, but his employer neglected to tell him about Emma's freaky son and the gunmen hot on her trail. Instinct tells him this job is trouble, but nothing can prepare him for Jake's proclamation that Will is The Chosen One, who must protect Emma from the men hunting her power. A power she doesn't know she has. 

Will protects Emma and Jake on a cross-country chase from the men pursuing them, while struggling with memories from his past, his apprehension of Jake, and his growing attraction to Emma. Will's overwhelming urge to protect Emma surprises him, especially since it has nothing to do with his paycheck and possibly everything to do with the tattoo Jake branded on his arm. Rich and powerful men are desperate to capture Emma, and Will must discover why before it's too late.

Includes the short story Emergence.

  • I'm sorta in love with this book

    By bengalfan78
    I loved this book. I stayed up most of the night reading it because I couldn't put it donw. It was on thrill of ride that keeps you guessing what is really going on. Chosen follows Emma and her son Jake as they have been off the grid and on the run from people who want to hurt them or use them. Jake has the ability to see the future and Emma has done everything in her power to protect her son. However, Emma is caught by Will, a mercenary tasked with bringing her and her son in. Will is used to working for paycheck and never ask questions, however Emma and Jake are vastly different then is usual jobs. The more Will leans the tougher it becomes to finish his job. The more time Will spends with Emma and Jake he starts to see his life in a vastly different way. As Emma and Will team up to keep Jake safe, they have to learn to trust each other in order to escape those that hunt them.

  • Disappointed

    By Ggranny6
    The actual book was good but I doubt I will be reading the additional ones in this series. I do not consider this a stand alone book and feel in order to really get the full story all volumes should be read. The characters are good.
  • Awesome

    By Sasysa1012
    This book is by far one of my favorites. Very addicting, though much swearing. I would recommend this book if you like the supernatural, romance, and if you can handle all of those F-bombs. I can't wait to read the next book!
