Forged in Fire
By Trish McCallan
Genre: paranormal romantic suspense
Beth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions until she dreams a sexy stranger is gunned down during the brutal hijacking of a commercial airliner. When events in her dream start coming true, she heads to the flight’s departure gate. To her shock, she recognizes the man she’d watched die the night before.
Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters comes from a bloodline of elite warriors with psychic abilities. When Zane and two of his platoon buddies arrive at Sea-Tac Airport, he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses. Then she arrives—a leggy blonde who sets off a different kind of alarm.
As Beth teams up with Zane, they discover the hijacking is the first step in a secret cartel’s deadly global agenda and that key personnel within the FBI are compromised. To survive the forces mobilizing against them, Beth will need to open herself to a psychic connection with the sexy SEAL who claims to be her soul mate.
Another excellent romantic suspense novel. This is the first I have read by Trish and I am already looking forward to more. She creates a great world for her characters with believable situations that you dont want to put the book down once you start.
Beth and Zane are practically combustible together from the beginning. And you can see the sparks fly on the page. And while Zane immediately believes they are meant to be together. You get to see how Beth deals with and adjusts to this new event in her life. All while they are racing against time to find out who the terrorists are and trying to save innocent victims in this global war being fought.
The supporting characters are great too. We get to meet 2 of Zane's crew along with their superior officer with enough detail to draw you in and want to know more of their stories as well. You really get to see how they work together and how they do function as a group but are not just colleagues but family as well.
I highly recommend this one to anyone looking for a good romantic suspense. It is carrying the paranormal label not because you will find vampires and shifter but for the psychic aspect that leads Beth and Zane together. Which really adds to the story as Zane and his buddies are complete believes and Beth is very much a skeptic. Its great to watch them all come together and work with each to find out the truth about what is going on and stop the terriorists from accomplishing their mission.
