Hostage to Pleasure, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


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 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 ...

Review by

Ashaya Aleine has escaped from the Psy, she's trying to keep her sanity, keep her child safe, keep the Psy from imposing a device that will make most of the Psy into slaves. Dorian Christensen is a DarkRiver sniper and lost his sister to a Psy psychopathic killer, he hates psy and cannot see a future for himself anywhere near a psy, but plans have ways of changing when (authors) and romance get in the way.It's pretty predictable, I wish there was more about the background and why people sleepwalked into this control and vulcanlike supression. It's pretty close to bending my suspension of disbelief beyond my usually flexible tolerance, it just doesn't feel real enough for me.The story is entertaining enough and I'm curious to know what's going to happen, but I don't really care about the romances, it's pretty clear where they're going during the story.
