Hostage to Pleasure

Paranormal Romance – Urban Fantasy – Sci-Fiction – Supernatural

Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy–cool, calm, emotionless…at least on the surface. Inside, she’s fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety, but to the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.

DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard’s rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian’s agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules.


5 Pleasure Stars


Hostage to Pleasure is the fifth book in the Psy-Changeling series. Loved It! What a great way to start the book. Action and Suspense in the very first page. I was drawn in and could not put this one down. 

Dorian is latent, which means he can’t shift and although many see it as a disadvantage, he doesn’t let that hinder his determination and protectiveness over Pack. He makes up for it with his sniper abilities and sharp mind. In this book he’s really the tortured soul, close to the edge, driven by a terrible hatred for the Psy, and self-hatred for not being able to save his baby sister from being tortured and murdered.

Ashaya Aleine is an M-Psy who already showed signs of feelings and emotions in “Mine to Possess”. She’s incredibly strong as a person, having broken Silence many years ago and she has had to act emotionless with perfection, anything less would mean her and her son’s death. I loved her moments with her son, Keenan! 

Amara, Ashaya’s twin sister, is a threat to Dorian and Shaya, so even though she wasn’t as ruthless and psycho as the other killers we see in the previous books, she was scary possessive of her twin sister.

WOW. This series just keeps getting better and better.
