From the Back Cover

Ghost Ops. A small unit of super-elite soldiers so secret only two men know of their existence. Betrayed by their commanding officer while on an antiterrorist mission, the team is massacred. Only three survive—and find themselves framed and disgraced. But en route to the court martial, they escape . . . and disappear.

Beautiful, brilliant, and determined, Dr. Catherine Young is on a mission to find a man who has vanished into thin air. Walking into a high-tech hideaway bearing an essential message to Tom "Mac" McEnroe, Team Leader of the betrayed Ghost Ops force, is the most dangerous thing she has ever done. The soldier she encounters is frightening and suspicious, but her senses reveal the man underneath: tough, honorable, and so breathtakingly masculine Catherine feels weak in his presence . . . But to surrender to Mac's passionate desires would put her life in dire jeopardy. Catherine has a gift that enables her to see into the heart of others—and looking into Mac's is like staring into the very heart of danger itself.

HASH(0x9db57114) out of 5 stars Loved it--can't wait for the next! Nov. 18 2012
By Cindy McDonald - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
3 cheers for Lisa Marie Rice! Another wonderful novel. But this one has a paranormal twist to it that is not so heavy that if you're not a paranormal fan, it will not be overbearing. Tom McEnroe "Mac" is an outlaw warrior hiding in a cave in Blue Mount that he has turned into a high-tech Utopia. Betrayed by his Captain during a mission, he and his fellow comrades Jon and Nick have built this world known as "Haven". They have taken in outcasts on the run including a former movie star, Stella, who is now the chef for Haven.

Catherine Young is a talented neurologist, who also has a "gift" that she has considered a curse all her life--she can feel others emotional and physical pain through touch. Though Mac and his partners believe their former captain is on some tropical island living a life of leisure while they are in hiding, the truth is that he is a prisoner in the lab where Catherine is a research scientist working on dementia. His brain has be altered and altered rendering him helpless--until he manages to communicate with Catherine telepathically. He sends her into the mountains in the middle of a blasting snowstorm to find Mac.

Catherine's car dies in the storm and she sits in the middle of ever-lovin' nowhere basically waiting to freeze to death, when indeed she is found by Mac. And this is where the sexual tension and the story takes off.

Ms. Rice is an author that doesn't always give her readers gorgeous alpha heroes. I love that. Mac is terribly scarred on one side of his face from a severe knife wound, and the other side has been burned to a crisp. But he is strong and brave, and Catherine not only feels his pain, but feels his honor and finally his love. He is tough and your heart pounds for him--that's when Ms. Rice reminds you that he is ugly, except you find that you just don't care--you can't help but love him.

Hey! This is a great ops series--I can't wait for the next book! Bring it on soon, Lisa!!!

HASH(0x9db57360) out of 5 stars Great new romantic suspense Dec 7 2012
By Becs G - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I think it's fair to say that I didn't get the novel I expected after I read the blurb but I did really enjoy it, all the same. I had kind of expected a fairly standard military style romantic suspense but what we got was a slightly paranormal, slightly futuristic, fairly steamy romance. It's based around a community of ex-military outlaws living a very high-tech existence outside of the law and regular society after an Op went bad a few years ago and they were all branded criminals.

As this is the beginning of a new series there's a lot of character-establishing and world-building going on. In fact, this is slightly futuristic, set some 11 years after the death of Osama Bin Laden, a world of e-cars, iPhone 15's and iPad 8's. There's a lot of interrupted, introspective narrative as the characters reflect on the past to help establish the background that brought the characters to where we join them now.

It all takes quite a while to get going - the romance between Catherine and Mac takes a very long time to warm up although there's a simmering attraction constantly running through the story but, despite all this, every time Max reached out to steady Catherine or worried about her in just the smallest way, my stomach did flip-flops and my insides pretty much liquefied. He's quite the hero but really not classically handsome, he's burned and scarred but he's a big, built man, he's alpha, growly and protective and I melted into a puddle every time he walked onto the page. Lisa Marie Rice has always given good hero and this one is no exception.

Catherine is a great heroine - she's earnest, honest, driven, highly intelligent and has great integrity and she's also something of an empath. She's able to tap into people's emotions by touching them. She regards this as both a gift and a curse and it is this skill which lies at the heart of the story leading the men of the community and herself into an Op which will have your heartbeat racing as the suspense switches up several gears.

I think it's fair to say that the first half of the novel is a slow burner as there is so much to set up but both the suspense and the romance intensify tenfold in the second half as the novel builds towards its pulsating conclusion by which point I was reading at breakneck speed, totally unable to put it down. I really did enjoy the emotional intensity of the relationship between Mac and Catherine when they finally succumbed to that overwhelming mutual attraction and they have some very passionate and steamy sex scenes.

It's a very promising start to what I expect will be a very good series and I'm very much looking forward to Book 2.

4 stars romantic suspense

HASH(0x9db575a0) out of 5 stars It's not really fair, you see, Nov. 20 2012

that Ms. Rice must compete with herself, but that is why I gave this novel four instead of five stars. I just expect a 'WOW' every time I read her work. Her Heroes are larger than life, they have testosterone running through their veins instead of blood, and they love their women the same way they embrace their masculinity. The Heroines are always gorgeous( as they should be in these stories,) intelligent enough to recognize their very own alpha male and to partner them on equal terms, and, of course, always have a Grave Peril from which the Hero must rescue them.
This book was no different, with two very distinct differences: the futuristic devices , missing from previous work, were believable, intriguing and appropriate. Ms. Rice did not ask us to suspend belief with this glimpse into a brave new world, even though the setting stretched ones's imagination a bit. The second difference was what I meant when I remarked that Ms. Rice was competing with herself. Never before have I noticed her using 'filler' like so many other writers do. Generally, I hang on to every word, every paragraph. The suspense and the sex are always powerful, over the top, dynamic, and dynamite. I have even re-read some of her books, but in the "Heart of Danger," Ms. Rice ,at times, seemed to be mindful of having to produce a certain word count. I found myself skipping forward, something I have never done with her previous books.
So yes, I recommend this novel, and feel the reader will get her money's worth. You will root for the Hero,, feel for the Heroine, and hate the bad guys, and the love scenes are pleasantly warming. But this is NOT as good as Ms. Rice gets, for sure.

HASH(0x9db57744) out of 5 stars Weak 3 stars. I liked the characters and overall plot, but too much pondering. I skimmed a lot. Nov. 22 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I always enjoy this author's characters and the hero's out of control sexual desire for her. But I also want a good story. Here she could have told the story in a third of the time. The author does fun pondering. For example he's thinking about his strength and skills in battle, yet he loses all that when he's around her. I like the pondering, but there is too much. I skimmed to get to the next line in conversation, or the next someone doing something. I wish the author spent more time developing the plot, the relationship, and the characters. She could have done more with the four patients. One minor thing that puzzled me: patient nine has gone through multiple surgeries and is strapped to a bed. So how did he have a pin to give to Catherine? Did he tell her where it might be stored with his clothing?

The fantasy element is Catherine's telepathic ability to sense emotions when touching someone.

Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 295 pages. Swearing language: strong including religious swear words. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 5. Setting: mostly 2022 California. Copyright: 2012. Genre: romantic suspense with fantasy.

HASH(0x9db57618) out of 5 stars Fast-paced, sexy romantic suspense Oct. 27 2012
By Marie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Heart of Danger is a fast-paced, romantic read. I stayed up late last night to finish it. It's very standard Lisa Marie Rice (which is great), but there is an added light paranormal twist that I loved. She's created a new world maybe 10 or 20 years in the future. There is holographic texting, most people drive electric cars, and there are some cool new weapons, etc.

Dr. Catherine Young is a brilliant neurologist on a mission to find a man named Tom McEnroe, or `Mac'. Her entire career and life are science-oriented, but she's lived with a supernatural gift her entire life and she's finally started to embrace it. When she touches people she can `see' what they're like through auras and images. She works for this multi-million dollar corporation that works on all sorts of things, including patients with dementia. She has a patient named `Number Nine' who she's gotten an important message from (telepathically) and she'll stop at nothing to make sure it's delivered. What I really liked about Catherine is that she's quietly brave. I read a lot of pnr, and all the women are always physically kick-butt, but Catherine uses her head and she never has any stupid moments. She thinks things through and analyzes the situation and even though she knew what could happen to her by searching out this mysterious Mac she does it because people's lives are at risk.

Mac is in hiding from his own government because they think he and his SEAL teammates were behind a bombing/fire. And Mac thinks his own former Commander (Lucius Ward) betrayed and sold him out. He and two of his teammates have created this world that's literally in a mountain. They're self-sufficient and have taken in people just like them; lost souls. When Catherine shows up on his mountain in the middle of a snow storm her car dies as do all her electronic devices because of a device they have set up to kill all electronics in a certain radius surrounding the entrance to the mountain. At first Mac thinks she's lost and stupid for driving around in such a bad snow storm but then she tells him that she's looking for Tom McEnroe. The fact that she says his real name blows him away so he scoops her up and takes her back to the mountain. At first he has no idea if she's a government agent or working for someone else so there relationship starts off with distrust. When it comes to light that Lucius Ward might actually be alive and might not have betrayed them after all, things really start to get interesting. I won't say more because I don't want to give away spoilers.

From the point where Catherine and Mac meet, the story is full of sexual tension and danger. What I really liked is that their attraction to each other was electric. About twenty percent of the book in, Mac thinks of himself as ugly and the reader gets a full description from his point of view but until that point I had only seen him through her eyes and she doesn't think of him as ugly at all. There was a subtle beauty and the beast theme running through this romance that I loved! I also liked that even though Mac is uber alpha, just like all LMR heroes, there's this scene near the end where he needed her as part of a mission and even though he didn't want her there, he let her take control when she needed for the good of everyone. The ending of this book opens up the possibility for so much in this slightly futuristic world that LMR has created and I will definitely be picking up the next book!
