Forged in Fire
Forged in Fire
Author: Trish McCallan
5 out of 5 Stars
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.
There is nothing hotter than a man in a uniform :) Especially a military uniform. Ok, I'm bias, that was my life for 12 years, being surrounded by men in uniform everyday...torture. Forged in Fire was the perfect story for me, and bonus...it was a little bit paranormal, jackpot!. This story has strong alpha males, intense realistic action, and a heart stopping love scene. Trish did such a great job with her descriptions and knowledge of the military, the fight scenes, the descriptions and use of weapons, it made it all believable. Her characters were not invincible but heroic and strong, and that pulls you into the story. You actually worry for the safety of these characters she has created. Not only is it easy for you to fall into the story and feel like you are there with them, but the intense bond that these characters have makes you wish one of them was sitting there next to you. This book was non-stop action from beginning to end, so be prepared to never put you book down for a minute. Forged in Fire is a great beginning to a fantastic series. I cannot wait to read book 2. *Hey Trish? Might your characters be based on real life people? Just ah, let me know, I got some vacation time saved up :)* ENJOY!
