Forged In Fire

What would you do if you woke up one morning after a the most real dream you ever had? What if one by one the events in your dream began to come true? First a fire at an abandoned warehouse, then your friend calls to talk to you about a divorce and finally you watch as the entire coach section of an airplane are shot to death one by one, the first class passengers held for ransom and then hi-jacked to a foreign country you've never heard of before? What would you do?

Well if you're like Beth Brown, an employee of PacAtlantic airlines, you will do everything in your power to ensure that no one is killed aboard one of the planes you work for, especially if really is going to happen.

When Beth shows up at the airport flying stand-by on Flight 2077, bound from Seattle to Honolulu, she waits to see if any of the people in the waiting area are the ones she remembers from her dream the night before. Slowly one by one, each person she looks at, she remembers in detail how they will die in a matter of hours if they board that flight. Even the three men talking among themselves against the wall are familiar but she feels compelled to tell someone what is going to happen but how.

When Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters and his friends Simcosky and Rawlings prepare to board a plane bound for a wedding, he gains a premonition that he is about to witness their deaths. Zane has a unique prophetic ability to detect danger to his team moments before it will actually happen, but he only gains a 2-3 second vision warning him of impending doom. As he tells his friends what is about to happen, all he knows is if they all get on that plane, they will die. Using his Navy Seal training, he begins to search the waiting area for details on who might be planning the attack.

When he comes across Beth Brown, their abilities connect in a way beyond what either of them would imagine. The men in Zane's family have been able to tell upon first glance who their soul mate and wife will be, and when he looks at Beth, he knows he's found the girl he's been searching for the last 10 years. Will they be able to set aside their personal feelings for one another to save the fated flight or will the terrorist plot to take over the plane present them with a new set of challenges to overcome?

I received Forged In Fire by Trish McCallan compliments of Trish and Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review. I LOVED the storyline and characters and was immediately hooked. This is a fast paced, heart-stopping thrill ride that lasts until the final page. I think Trish did an outstanding job at conveying the believability of the connection between Zane and Trish especially in light of 9/11 events. I think I would have done exactly what Trish does and without realizing how much danger she puts herself in. Yet when you have a Navy Seal Lt. Commander falling in love with you, you know he will let nothing come between protecting your life at all costs.

As a warning some of my readers might be offended by the use of profanity and the strong sexual content found within this book and wanted to offer this disclaimer. For this reason I rate the book a 4 out of 5 stars, because the story is a completely amazing sizzling romantic suspense thriller. For those of you used to reading the old style Harlequin romances, this one is right on queue with those!
