Payton Winters is thrust into the position of CEO of The Winters Corporation after the sudden death of her parents. Confronted with the knowledge she was born with special abilities, she finds herself in the dilemma of being a grounding force to people who possess psychic powers. She has unwillingly become the mental anchor to the one man she wants no part of, Collin McBain. While on a routine mission, Collin is drugged, tortured, and injected with wolf DNA. Now believed dead, he is secretly assigned to the Winters Campus. 

Faced with the reality that her life is based on half-truths, Payton is on a pursuit to uncover her mother’s scientific research. She desperately needs to understand why she and her two sisters were genetically altered before birth. Payton’s path to discovery is littered with danger as she finds herself embroiled in a world of secrets, lies, kidnapping, and murder. She struggles to understand the events of the past in order to cope with her future. Will Payton’s pursuit for the truth be her last?

MY REVIEW by Lilian Flesher

Payton and her two sisters Victory and Willow run a huge research facility where Victory is the Biochemist and Payton the CEO.  It was built close to their home on the  ground they purchased off the government, but as part of the deal they had a contract with the government.

 Victory was kidnapped by Collin who had been kidnapped and subject to human testing by Biotech a company in close competition with Payton's.  Collin was actually injected with Wolf DNA, and this caused him to have very erratic behaviour, and he was being helped by Victory to find a cure.  It was a bungled attempt by Biotech to recover Collin and continue their experiments on him, but his rage took over and in his blind wolf-like state, he had heightened senses and realised that Victory was in danger so he took her to save her.  Later Victory tried to work on a serum to help Collin to suppress the wolf in him.  

Payton's mother was a scientist and had struggled to conceive, she had invented a drug to help her conceive, but it appears it was tampered with because the 3 sisters all had some kind of power.  Peyton had never really tried to progress hers at all but when she was in the presence of Collin she was overtaken by a terrible feeling, she would get violent headaches, his aura seemed to invade her brain and the consequence was she would end up passed out.  Her sister  decided it was time to help Payton hone in on her own powers, she could fine tune it and use it to block out Collin thus avoiding the headaches and passing out that was happening to her.  One of the sisters could telepathically speak to her husband, so she really had to get Payton to become in tune with her own, to reach the core of it and use it to help herself.

Whilst this was all going on, behind the scenes Biotech and their associates were plotting to get Collin back and when the opportunity arose to kidnap Payton to use as leverage, they leaped into action and kidnapped her.  

There is actually a lot of thing happening in this story, from the simple things like training Payton to use her power, to the more elaborate things, like planning a rescue mission, murder and even a touch of sex (tastefully done I might add)

No detail was left out, everyone had a role and each role was explained making it a very exciting and interesting read.  I thoroughly enjoyed each and every page of this book.

Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint
village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could
read she wanted to explore the world. During her college years she slowly crept
across the country, stopping along the way in Oklahoma, California, and finally
Washington State, which she now proudly calls home. She lives with her husband
and Dobermans, in their home located on the Kitsap Peninsula with a panoramic
view of the Olympic Mountains.

Joanne writes paranormal, romantic suspense, and
contemporary romance. She loves writing about the twists and turns of her
character’s lives along with the trouble they find themselves involved in. She
enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, and of
course romance.

Joanne is a member of Romance

Debbie Macomber’s home chapter.
