Original Title: Finding My Faith

Growing up in a small Northern Arizona town, Faith Cloudfoot’s life was spent playing in the forests surrounding her house under the protective eyes of her father, and learning about the legends of her Native American heritage. Yearning for more out of her life, she moves to Phoenix, Arizona at the age of twenty-three where she is kidnapped and almost killed.
Rayner has a special ability, one that weighs on him like a curse. He can see spirits trapped in between life and their final resting place. Because he can’t do much to help them, he studiously ignores them. He concentrates, instead, on working with his fellow warriors to right the wrongs caused by the evil criminals from his home planet.
When Rayner sees Faith in her spirit form while investigating a lead in Phoenix, his attraction to her is immediate, yet he follows his own personal code and ignores her cry for attention. When he realizes that she may be a stepping stone to getting him home to his own universe, he engages Faith and begins to use her as a means to an end: going home.
As the attraction grows stronger, Rayner finds himself breaking all sorts of self-set rules, as well as the code of ethics set by him and his fellow warriors. When Faith nears death, Rayner realizes that he must do everything in his power to save her, because if he doesn’t, he may just lose himself.
It was barely a whisper, but Rayner heard it. His heart beat even faster, and he slowly opened his eyes. Faith was looking at him.
“Yes,” he whispered back.
“Your eyes...” her voice drifted off, and she closed her eyes for a moment as if she were recalling something, then opened them again.
She smiled slightly and reached for his hand. “My wise warrior saved me.”
He took it and held the delicate bones in his big paw. Energy ripped through him as their palms touched. After the initial jolt, he felt a peace overcome every fiber of his being. It slowed his heart and loosened his muscles. The peace that flowed through him was an energy all onto itself.
They stared at each other for a moment, then Faith shut her eyes. Rayner studied her face. In a nutshell, she took his breath away. She was prettier in the flesh than she had been as a ghost. He watched her chest rise and fall with each breath.
“We have to get out of here, Rayner,” Hudson said in a low voice.
Rayner nodded, let go of Faith's hand and began to stand up.
Faith's eyes flew open and she tried to sit up, panic raced across her face. “No!” she said, “please don't leave me!”
Rayner took her hand again and got back down on his knees. “Faith, relax. I'm not going anywhere without you. You're safe now.”
He met her eyes, and for a long moment he knew she was deciding whether he could be trusted. He gave her hand a gentle squeeze and said, “I promise.”
