Romancing the Null

Book 1, The Outlier Prophecies

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


An impossible prophecy. An unlikely partnership. They’ll have to work together to prevent a terrifying age of darkness.  

In a world where oracles divine everything from fender benders to accidental death, Kate Hale’s future is a mystery. But that doesn’t stop her from landing her dream job as a predictions investigator. So when an oracle reports his own high-probability murder, she knows her career depends on pawning off the case to anyone else… even an unhinged police liaison with a taste for danger. 

Instead of taking the problem off her hands, Officer Ian Becker strings her along on a daring mission to snatch the man from the jaws of almost-certain death. As prophecies dry up and clues only add to more confusion, Kate realizes nothing is what it seems including her hot-headed partner with a heart of gold.  

When their would-be murder investigation unearths a sinister conspiracy, can Kate and Ian catch the culprits before their future tumbles into the great unknown? 

Romancing the Null is the first book in The Outlier Prophecies, an exhilarating urban fantasy romance series. If you like perplexing predictions, slow-burn love stories, and snarky humor, then you’ll love Tina Gower’s action-packed mystery.

Customer Reviews

Pretty good

Characters are well written. I rooted for them but didn't really love this fantasy world. That's just my opinion for what it's worth.

Nerdy and loving it

Gower builds a whole new world, not too different from our own, but filled with magic. She reveals it and our heroine's plot subtly. Couldn't get enough.

Fun, easy read with a little mystery

I really enjoyed this book. At times it was a little bit predictable, but most of them of this genre are. You have the quirky unsure of herself nerd girl, handsome cop with a chip on his shoulder, oracles, descendants of weres, and lives in peril. It's good enough that I think I'll buy book two and enjoy, but not so good that I HAVE to buy it.
