Title: I Dream of Danger
They are the Ghost Ops: a covert squad of super-elite soldiers. After their team was betrayed and massacred, the three surviving members went underground and built Haven, a community of misfits and geniuses. Now they're at a crossroads, facing a new threat capable of destroying everything they hold dear.
In the second book of Lisa Marie Rice's thrilling Ghost Ops series, the Haven team is faced with a new addition to their secret society-and a threat capable of destroying everything they hold dear.
When Nick Ross disappears from Elle Thomason's life, she is certain she'll never see the man she loves again—except in her dreams.
Ten years later, as a respected researcher breaking new ground in psychic phenomena, she sends a desperate call for Nick's help. One by one, her colleagues have started disappearing . . . and Elle knows she's next. An elite soldier, Nick never meant to hurt Elle, duty kept him away—and then she vanished. Now troubled by unusually vivid, disturbing dreams of Elle in danger, Nick will rescue the only woman he's ever wanted and bring her back with him to Haven. Though powerful men are after Elle and her special abilities, Nick will die before leaving her side again.

Action, suspense, characters and romance. Those are the four elements needed in creating a good romantic suspense story. It’s how you mix them together that will determine if it will be a just good or a great story. Personally, I feel author Lisa Marie Rice has done a great job I Dream of Danger.
I am not a big fan of military men in my romances. I know how can I not like a man in a uniform. It is not the uniform but all the predictable things that go with it. Guns, work, blah, blah, blah. Yes, there were some of these elements but they are presented in a way that they did not over-shadow the story. Although I must say, as a geek, all the techno futuristic stuff I found very cool. What I liked about it was that it wasn’t so way off in the future that the technology was too difficult to wrap your brain around. The action scenes are also written well enough that I wasn’t bogged down (Read: Bored) with the military verbiage.
The characters, both main and secondary, are some of my favorites! Nick is tough, and raw and yet because of his abusive background, so fragile. Easily Elle is my favorite. Her complete 180 from treasured only child, to broken lost everything, to this strong intelligent woman. I love to see a character develop into her empowerment. The romance and sex between them is romantic and arousing. The secondary characters were amazing. No fillers here! They played such a great part I would love to see them all get their own stories.
This is actually my first book by author Lisa Marie Rice and I got to say, I’m really liking her. Frankly, I didn’t know this was a series right away this book worked very well until the very end when there is of course a cliffhanger. Now knowing there is a book 1, I plan to read it ASAP. Between the edge of your seat action, the romance between Elle and Nick and the fascinating cliffhanger, I Dream of Danger is definitely a book (and series) worth the read. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
