Romance, suspense and intrigue, and the paranormal...combined to make one of the most delicious journeys I have had the pleasure of taking in a long, long time...definitely something for everyone. Sizzling romance, twisting turning avenues of suspense. What a page-turner!"

The basic idea of the story was a scientist uses his daughter and a team of soldiers to develop thier telepahthy skills with espionage thrown in. This is not what I would call a soppy or mushy book and would highly recommend it if you liked the dark series.
Along with other military soldiers, Captain Ryland Miller volunteered for a government funded psychic enhancement program. The men begin to suspect something is amiss when a few of their fellow soldiers have died and they've been put under constant surveillance. They're even locked in state of the art cages.
The experiments are being conducted by Dr. Peter Whitney who suddenly disappears, but not before bringing his daughter Lily in to help him. Lily is thrown in at the deep end and is unsure why here father has brought her in on this assignment. Much to her surprise, she has a deep, instantaneous connection with Ryland. Together maybe they can save themselves and their team
Shadow Game is a colourful miasma of action, sensuality and brilliance, beautifully woven into a really, great storyline. But the best of it is the dialogue: It's a great blend of wit, romance and tough-guy talk that was mesmerizing and entertaining. The plot unfolds at a slow pace but the almost animal attraction between Lily and Ryland hits you hard in the face from the moment they meet. There are so many twists to the story that you're left with a few unanswered questions, but the end leaves you satisfied and anxious for the next instalment.

If you like sci-fi stories with a drop of romance, a whole lot of suspense, wonderful characters and a fantastic,but extremely palusible storyline, this book is a match made in heaven for you. Enjoy!!!
This book is about a group of special forces men who have had their natural psychic talents enhanced by a doctor but things have gone wrong. His daughter, Lily, finds herself helping the men after her father is killed and her help is successful because she, too, was psychically enhanced by her father. Lily and the leader of the men, Captain Ryland Miller, together work to find out who is responsible for the death of her father.
I enjoyed the book as I was reading it but I was also disappointed. The reviews had been very positive, but I found that the book lacked depth – not in the subject matter, but in the relationship between the main characters. There was plenty of sex, supposedly there was a meeting of minds and emotions, but it all felt very flat and one-dimensional to me. I suppose the basic problem was that there was no tension within the story – they met, instantly fell completely and utterly in love/lust, and that was that. No confusion, no learning to love each other more, no mistrusting and misunderstanding which tends to be the focus of all good novels. There’s little interest in a romance when it runs without a hitch.
The sex scenes I found boring and there were too may of them. I was reading this book for the view of different possibilities within this world, the world of military applications of psychic powers – but I found I was reading a book about sex. And someone needs to offer Christine Feehan another adjective to go with “breasts” – she only seemed able to use “generous”, and used it multiple times. It jarred.
I suppose this book was OK but somehow it didn’t really connect with me. I’ll read the others if I come across them in the library but I wouldn’t bother buying them.
