Synopsis (Goodreads):
She just wants her life back. After being kidnapped and forced to kill by a vicious crime lord, Cate Hartmann is now a killer with an addiction to stealing souls. On the island sanctuary of Haven, surrounded by other anomalies with secret abilities, she fights to recover. But only one man calms the dark storm inside and makes her believe she can be whole again…Dr. Gage Walker.

Scientist Gage Walker has spent a decade helping anomalies. But every day, he’s haunted by his previous job for the CIA—where he crossed far too many boundaries and hurt so many anomalies. Including his brother. He vows he won’t fail again and will do everything he can to heal Cate—including fighting his attraction to her.

But when the crime lord comes after Cate again, it’s a race against time to find out why he wants her. Amidst the danger, Gage and Cate drawn to each other, even as they fear that one wrong step will send her hurtling back into the depths of her soul stealing addiction.
Thoughts on Soul Stealer: Cate's had a rough couple of months. Kidnapped and forced to use her talent to kill people in really horrific ways, she's now on the mend. Sort of. She's fighting off her need to kill. She's in a bad place, but she's getting better. She's in the "I don't deserve to live after what I've done" headspace and she doesn't trust herself around Gage or anyone else.

Then things get worse. Because being forced to defend herself the only way she knows how takes her backwards a few steps. Good thing Gage isn't willing to give up on her. He pulls her back into their corner of the world and makes her face herself and her fears.

Oh, yeah. And the bad guy REALLY wants to get Cate back in his clutches. Which sets up the next book nicely.

These anomalies are a tough bunch who fight for what they believe in, even when it seems like a lost cause. I'm very curious to see where book 4 goes.
