FORGED IN FIRE
With so many stories about Navy SEALs out there, you might think there couldn’t be anything new to add to the subgenre, but McCallan will prove you wrong. Full of suspense, with some paranormal elements too, her first entry in the Forged series is a pulse-pounding adventure.
Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters is assigned to save a kidnapped woman and her children, but the night before his flight, he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses. When he’s met at the airport by Beth Brown, a psychic warning him not to board the plane, he’s reluctant to trust the leggy blonde. But Zane comes from a bloodline of elite warriors with psychic powers, including the ability to spot their predestined soul mates — and Beth just might be his. As the two team up and discover the plane hijacking is the first step in a deadly cartel’s global agenda, they will need to shed their inhibitions and open themselves to connecting, psychically and otherwise.
