Beth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions. But her recent dream feels too real to ignore: a commercial airliner is hijacked, and a handsome passenger is shot dead. Beth hasn’t met the mystery man in her dream; she would never forget a gorgeous face like his. But she can’t deny the bizarre connection she feels. Now awake, and unable to allow for the violence she’s convinced is impending, she races to the airport…and comes face to face with the man of her dreams.
Zane Winters lives for his job, using his uncanny psychic powers to carry out missions for elite SEAL Team 7. Yet the constant adrenaline highs can’t drown out the numbness seeping into his life as he yearns to find a woman he can trust. All that changes when he meets a beautiful stranger who sets his soul on fire—and somehow knows he’s about to die.
To thwart the global crisis the hijacking will unleash, Beth and Zane join forces. But even amid the danger, they can’t deny the powerful force drawing them together. Is it merely attraction…or destiny?
This is the first in a new series by a debut author. I love anything Navy SEAL related. They always prove to be the most bada** and alpha male characters. Zane is no different. Something different in this Romantic Suspense is the semi-paranormal element of psychic phenomenon. While the psychic part is a pretty important part of the story and even has Shifter Mate Like characteristics, this story really does stand up well as a solid Romantic Suspense.
I found myself wondering about Zane's family and the history he had with his CO and fellow SEALS. They often referenced the matings of his Brothers and instances of his Psychic ability, but I felt like I was missing something. Maybe a spin off telling us about the Brothers? hint hint... hehe!
The actual action in this was great, I really liked the storyline and the airport terrorist aspect of the book. The actual terrorist plot overall goes way deeper than this book, it definitely sets up for the rest of the series. I think its going to be a thrilling ride.
