Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh

Visions of Heat:
Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous-aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her. Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take either man or jaguar form, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced-and keep her from Vaughn...

I really enjoyed this book, however I wish I had read the first book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series, Slave to Sensation, first. In this creative, paranormal world Nalini has created, there is a lot of information in the second book and I felt I would have been better prepared for had I read Slave to Sensation before Visions of Heat, and although I do prefer to start a new series with the very first book, I couldn't find it in this case and the story of Faith and Vaughn was calling to me and I was unable to resist giving in to the temptation! As an F-Psy, Faith has lived her entire life deprived of any contact with the outside world, including physical touch, and when she begins to question her surroundings and stumbles across Vaughn, a jaguar Changeling. As a child, Vaughn was forced to depend on his jaguar to help him survive and the result of spending so much time in his cat form resulted in his beast being much more closer to the surface compared to the other Changelings and he also requires a lot more physical touch than Faith has any understanding of. As the unlikely pair find themselves hunting for the murderer of Faith's sister together they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another and Faith must choose between breaking the protocol she has lived with all her life in order to stay with Vaughn or to return to the only life she has ever known and remain alone forever...
