BLURB:
I love Torin St. James... I crave his touch... I need his strength...
 Raine Cooper is certain of two things: her love for Torin St. James and her destiny to be a powerful seeress. But when she starts having premonitions, they are unclear and disturbing. Worse, they involve Torin. Not sure what to do, she keeps quiet. But when the visions are about her and another man, Raine realizes she needs to talk to someone. Just her luck two new students arrive at her school and they seem to have answers. When with them, her powers are enhanced and her visions become clear. There is only one problem: Torin does not want Raine to have anything to do with the two girls but he won't explain why. Can their love survive the secrets they are keeping from each other?

EXCERPT
 I jumped up and walked to the window. Torin was in his kitchen. Shirtless. Those abs. That sculptured, endless chest. There ought to be a law against men like him and sweatpants that hang so low they bordered on indecent. He reached down and scratched his butt. I giggled. Only Torin could look hot scratching his perfect ass. He disappeared from the window. Dang it. He was supposed to glance out the window and check on me first. Now I wasn’t going to get my morning coffee. I turned to head to the shower, and he walked through the portal shirtless and barefoot. He had the sexiest feet ever. I ogled him a little. Okay, a lot. “You continue with that and I’ll forget your mom is not here,” he warned, putting the cup on my dresser. I braced myself against his chest, went on my toes, and kissed him. I couldn’t help what I did next. I scratched his butt. “Still itchy?” He chuckled, wrapping an arm around my waist. “I knew you were checking me out, you perv.” 
“How? Your back was to me.” 
“I have lustful-eyes-on-me radar.” 
My feet left the floor as his lips claimed mine in a kiss that shot from warm to scorching in warp speed. Then we were rolling on the bed. I did what any sane girl would do when met with a force beyond her control. I soaked it all in and clung. He tasted amazing. Coffee, vanilla, and stomach-curling goodness. He rolled again so I was on top. He knew how I loved that. My thick hair formed a curtain around us. He loved that. 
“Good morning, Freckles,” Torin whispered against my lips, his hand slipping lower. 
“Behave,” I warned, grabbing his hand and bringing it back to my waist. 
He chuckled, the sound sexy. “You scratch and I scratch back.”

Praise for the Seeress 
…suspenseful, dramatic and exciting… Raine is surrounded by the most wonderful little group of people, all willing to support her. Even though they are not all related by blood, the love and sense of family is something beautiful… YA Book Addict   After reading Grimnirs I thought this series couldn’t get any better. Boy, I was wrong. Seeress put the bar really high for the next books in the series… Ruty @ReadingDreaming  

 "Seeress" is the third book of the Runes Series and it's just as good as its predecessors. The book with its Norse Mythology background and great characters (Raine, Torin, Echo, Cora, Andris, Ingrid....) just sucks you… Stacey M. Cook Amazon reviewer 

  I swooned, cried, laughed, fretted and cheered. I was guessing with each turn of events. Totally brilliant.… Maureen "I am a 40 something year old female that still loves young adult fiction” 

My Review:
I loved this book! Now I haven't read books one or two but I didn't need too. I was still able to get into the book without feeling lost! I loved the main characters especially Raine and Torin! Their chemistry popped off the pages as soon as they were together. Honestly my favorite books are ones with great couples that keep you reading just for their interactions. I also loved the plot which I found to be action packed and  not predictable. In YA the plots can be a bit predictable like all YA authors follow the same outline, but that is not the case for Seeress.
I recommend this book to everyone! Now I must start from the beginning and read the first 2 books!
