Beth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions. But her recent dream feels too real to ignore: a commercial airliner is hijacked, and a handsome passenger is shot dead. Beth hasn’t met the mystery man in her dream; she would never forget a gorgeous face like his. But she can’t deny the bizarre connection she feels. Now awake, and unable to allow for the violence she’s convinced is impending, she races to the airport…and comes face to face with the man of her dreams.
Zane Winters lives for his job, using his uncanny psychic powers to carry out missions for elite SEAL Team 7. Yet the constant adrenaline highs can’t drown out the numbness seeping into his life as he yearns to find a woman he can trust. All that changes when he meets a beautiful stranger who sets his soul on fire—and somehow knows he’s about to die.
To thwart the global crisis the hijacking will unleash, Beth and Zane join forces. But even amid the danger, they can’t deny the powerful force drawing them together. Is it merely attraction…or destiny?
Beth has a bizarre dream that she just can’t shake. A few things happen in her morning that runs parallel to her dream. Fear, and curiosity sends her to the airport to board a flight to Hawaii. At the airport waiting area, she sees Zane Winters, the man she saw dead on the plane. She finally gets brave enough to warn him of the hijacking, who the hijackers are and his impending death. That is where their adventure begins. This story had a wonderful flow, it was very easy to get through and very difficult to put down. One aspect I loved about this novel was that although there was some romance and chemistry, it was secondary to the suspenseful, thriller portion. I gave this one a solid 5!
