When Houston Havens gave me the opportunity to look at the ARC, of her new novel I could hardly wait! Since I finished reading “Sinful Surrender”, I eagerly awaited the follow up. Being given the opportunity to read “Phantom Desire” before anyone else was like giving a choco-holic a life time supply of fine chocolate. Needless to say I was in heaven and here is why.
Houston develops rich characters with deep emotional turmoil as they struggle to survive in a post apocalyptic dystopian world. In this novel, Chandra a Psychic spy who has left her own government after the realization she was working for the wrong side. Now she is mortal danger as her government attempts to assassinate her and her best friend Fay for their betrayal. In addition she struggles with great loss and heart ache, and what she can only assume is blame for her part in the loss of the man she loves. Guided by her inner warrior, and the need for revenge she puts herself in harms way to do what she’s always done, protect the ones she loves.
To say this novel was riveting would be an understatement. I simply could not put it down! I loved every aspect of the intricate plot lines, strong and relatable characters and above all else Houston’s sex scenes were on fire! I highly recommend this book to anyone.
