Forged In Fire by Trish McCallan ~ A Review

   ♥♥♥♥♥ YOU GOTTA READ THIS BOOK!  ♥♥♥♥♥

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.

~*~*~*~*~* REVIEW *~*~*~*~*~

Wow. Wow! WOW! Can I say it one more time? WOW! Just finished Forged in Fire by Trish McCallan and I was not disappointed. What the cover promises, Trish delivers–A sexy alpha male hero, excitement, and more.  Forged in Fire is a hot, sexy, action-adventure romance with a hero that’s every girl’s dream–a man who believes that he’s met his soul mate in Beth Brown. Too bad he’s got a hijacking to stop. But business can’t keep Zane Winters  from his new objective–convincing Beth they belong together forever.  Aside from the hot as hell love scenes and emotional pull of the romance, what I love best is the fact that Trish manages to pull the reader into the story without boring them with too many facts about how government operations work. I want to get away and have a precarious adventure through the hero and heroine, but I don’t want to learn government infrastructure and protocol above and beyond. I know first hand this feat requires a depth of research like no other. Instead of feeding all the info to the reader, the author has to live the life, submerge themselves into the characters’ thoughts and minds. Then they have to include just the right amount of information without dumping a heap load of technical jargon that pulls the reader away from the true story. My hat’s off to Trish for beautifully executing such a difficult move.  Her characters’ voices ring true. There are no info-dumps and everyone is sympathetic (except for the villain, of course) and believable. Forged in Fire is a must read.  So add it to your TBR list, but make sure it’s next in line. You won’t be disappointed!

~*~*~*~*About TRISH *~*~*~*~

Trish McCallan has been writing for as long as she can remember.

In grade school she wrote children’s stories, illustrating them with crayons and binding the sheets together with pencil-punched holes and red yarn.  She used to sell these masterpieces at her lemonade stand for a nickel a book. Surprisingly, people actually bought them. Like, all of them. Every night she would have to write a new batch for her basket.

As she got older her interest changed to boys and horses. The focus of her literary masterpieces followed this shift. Her first full length novel was written in seventh grade and featured a girl, a horse and a boy. At the end of the book the teenage heroine rode off into the sunset . . . with the horse.

These days she sticks to romantic suspense with hot alpha heroes and roller-coaster plots. Since she is a fan of all things bizarre, paranormal elements always seem to find a way into her fiction. Her current release, Forged in Fire, was the result of a Black Dagger Brotherhood reading binge, a cold, a bottle of NyQuil and a vivid dream.
