Cole Ryan is having visions that feel so familiar, yet she has no idea when or where they are from. When she meets Griffon Hall, he explains that her visions are actually flashbacks to previous lives and that she is one of the few people who are able to remember past lives when they are reincarnated. This group-the Akhet- must use what they've learned in the past to live this life and Cole now shares the responsibility to make the most of this special gift, just as Griffon has been doing for centuries. Griffon's extensive life experiences give him special abilities to solve the problems facing the world today, and Cole is developing some gifts of her own. Gifts she will need as her nemesis from a past life seeks Cole out to exact revenge.
As this connection brings Cole and Griffon closer together, she falls hard for him. With so much to learn of the past, is this life the one they are meant to be together in? When Griffon reveals a shocking secret from a shared life, Cole isn't sure who she can trust. With danger coming from all sides, Cole must look within herself and to find her own truth.
