CONSPIRACY GAME

Author(s): 

One of the most interesting aspects
of Feehan's Game series is how the author deals with issues of trust and control. In this book, especially, both the hero and heroine are emotionally damaged yet struggling to survive as best they can. Adding deep emotional connections to the dangerous plot propels this novel into a high-stakes game of hide-and-seek. When it comes to paranormal romance, Feehan is in a class by herself.

Psychic twins and soldiers Jack and Ken Norton have protected each other their entire lives. So when Ken is caught and tortured, Jack leads the team that rescues him. Unfortunately, Jack is caught during the effort, though he later escapes. While looking to get home from Kinshasa, he discovers another ghostwalker like himself, only female.

Briony Jenkins has always been different, but that hasn't made a difference to her four adopted brothers. Traveling the world in a family circus, Briony regularly experiences deep pain just by being near too many people. After saving Jack in Kinshasa, she discovers that she has an all-too-real reminder of their encounter: She's pregnant. When evil forces try to kidnap Briony, she realizes her only hope lies with the reclusive Jack -- if she can find him. (JOVE, Nov., 336 pp., $7.99)
