Captain Ryland Miller is a basically a "rat" in a cage as are his men in his military unit. They volunteered for a highly classified experiment to enh..Show More »ance the psychic abilities they each had. Dr. Peter Whitney is the head scientist with Colonel Higgens the military liaison. Several of Captain Miller's men have died of "brain bleeds" and other suspicious causes. They are all separated and can only communicate infrequently via telepathy.
Dr. Whitney and Col. Higgens come to talk to him and have brought guards and Dr. Whitney's daughter, Lily who is also a doctor and scientist. Dr. Whitney has asked his daughter to consult on the project as he is not sure why some of the men have died.
Ryland is immediately drawn to Lily and she to him. They communicate telepathically which scares Lily at first. Shortly after she is linked with her father and she realizes he is being killed and almost doesn't separate herself from him in time but with Ryland's telepathic help she does. In the coming days, no one else seems to know her father is dead not just disappeared and Lily becomes worried as she delves into her father's secret laboratory and papers finding secrets about him and herself that are very hard to take in.
The story progresses as Lily helps Ryland and his team break out and shelters them. Ryland, Lily and his team also work to find out how his other men died and who is responsible as it soon becomes apparent it is not Dr. Peter Whitney.
My one main problem in this story. I can't beleive I am saying this because I love a good sex scene. However, I felt there was too much spent on Lily and Ryland falling into bed and/or having sex in dangerous places almost every other page. I would like to have had more time spent on both the "bad" guys and the members of Ryland's team to get to know their characters more and what they had actually gone through being part of this experiment.
I still really enjoyed the book and although I felt there a few too many sex scenes they were well written and hot. Tom Stechschulte was outastanding in the delivery of the story
Th first half of the book was exciting and held my interest. The narrator's accent was annoying but tolerable. The second half completely dropped the ..Show More »story line in favor of gratutious sex. The worst part was that almost all sentences used the word body, but Mr. Stechschulte could not seem to pronounce it. It seemed to be baaaaaahdy or bhhhaaady or some such varaiation which became extremely annoying , and I could not finish the book, which is a first for me.
This is one the strongest books in her Ghostwalker series. Flame is a consistently strong character who gives as good as she gets. The narrator had me..Show More » worried with his heavily done cajun accent he does for the main male character,Gator, but either he tones it down or the ear gets use to it. The sex scenes were hot as usual and a little crazy.
I was so bummed when the audiobook for Predatory Game was skipped in the Ghostwalker series; I'm super glad it's out now! It's most definitely one of ..Show More »my favorites. To me, the story focuses more on the relationship of the main couple than some of the other Ghostwalker books. I also like how the story starts in an already developed relationship. It seems more realistic than some of the others (taking the genre into consideration). I'm also very pleased Tom Stechschulte narrated. He does a great job with these books! A highly recommended listen! Now if only we could get Shadow Game and Deadly Game!
I loved this book, I wasn't too happy with the last book in the series but this one puts her back on top!
This book has everything, a gre..Show More »at love story with sexy steamy love scenes but in NO way do they take away from the action, and there IS action. The book was never slow and it took turns I did NOT see coming, which was nice.
This is a book that I will listen to again and recommend to friends and family.
This is the latest instalment in the Ghostwalker series. I waited a long time for it, and I wasn't disappointed. The entire series is loaded with acti..Show More »on, military precision, futuristic science, culturally and racially diverse characters and passionate love scenes. The sex and violence is very explicit, so if that's not your thing, this isn't the book for you.
I wouldn't call this series paranormal, although I believe it is billed as such. Rather than ghosts and vampires, this series is about genetically enhanced male soldiers, and their female counterparts who were similarly enhanced as children. Their enhancements give them certain powers that are well above and beyond what is common to most humans. A scientific genius created them to be military super weapons, and also breeding pairs for (hopefully) genetically gifted children.
Each book focuses on a couple who meet and fall in love. I suppose each book "could" stand alone, but not comfortably. There is an ongoing background story that is as compelling as the main story of each book, and for that reason I would suggest reading the series from the beginning to get the full effect.
Samurai Game itself was a wonderful addition. Thorn is a strong, smart heroine who doesn't sit around waiting for the hero to rescue her. Nor does she rush headlong into danger without the resources to get herself out. She is in parts strong and ruthless, caring and serene. Sam is a soldier through and through, with a man's need to protect his woman, but with enough respect for her capabilities to let her handle situations on her own.
If you like your romances with a healthy dose of action and intrigue, and if you like strong, smart, capable heroines to go along with your sexy macho heroes, you will love this series, and this book.
