Only By Your Touch - Catherine Anderson

Title: Only By Your Touch
Author: Catherine Anderson

Pages: 443
Genre: Romance/Paranormal

I love love love books about contemporary Native Americans - especially Healers. Their connection with the earth, beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation, and their ways with animals.

Ben is a Shoshone Indian who has a healing touch. But he has denied his heritage and gift most of his life. After moving to Jack Pine, he is learning to embrace who he truly is - even if the town shuns him and has branded him a murderer.

Chloe is a single mother who flees from an abusive relationship to the quiet resort town of Jack Pine. There, she hopes to protect her son - but that proves more difficult when he befriends the town outcast, Ben. He seeks him out to heal his sick puppy.

As their attraction begins to grow - Ben is fearful that Chloe will not be able to accept who he truly is. He has been hurt before - but Chloe just might have the power to heal his wounded soul.
