Overview

Mind traveler Chandra Lamar is on the run, not only from her post-catastrophic dystopian government but from a past she can't remember. A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it's a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she'll never have. Both push her to remember the past because it threatens what she wants in the now; the Nodin men.

Andonis Nodin battles to accept his failures. The heavy burden nearly breaks him when he can't save the one he loves from the grim reaper's grip; he questions his desire for Chandra, the woman he blames for the death around him.

Nikias finds true love with Chandra in his arms, but is desperate to stop her from seeking revenge on a mission he knows is a one way trip.

Ortello knows for them to recapture the love they once felt for each other, he must be willing to let her go. But overcoming his obsession to make
Chandra his and his alone isn't easy.

Will Chandra go through with the vengeance in her heart or give it up for love? Who is the powerful woman in her haunting visions and will those revealing apparitions crumble her world with the Nodin clan? Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart?

A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it’s a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she’ll never have. Both push her to remember the past because it threatens what she wants in the now; the Nodin men.  Andonis Nodin battles to accept his failures. The heavy burden nearly breaks him when he can’t SAVE the one he loves from the grim reaper’s grip; he questions his desire for Chandra, the woman he blames for the death around him. Nikias finds true love with Chandra in his arms, but is desperate to stop her from seeking REVENGE on a mission he knows is a one way trip.  Ortello knows for them to recapture the love they once felt for each other, he must be willing to let her go. But overcoming his obsession to make Chandra his and his alone isn’t easy.  Will Chandra go through with the vengeance in her heart or give it up for love? Who is the powerful woman in her haunting visions and will those revealing apparitions crumble her world with the Nodin clan? Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart?  My Thoughts The much anticipated sequel to book 1 Sinful Surrender where we first meet Chandra as a secondary character. She now has her own story and it was every bit as action packed and scintillatingly hot as the first in the Psychic Menage series. Right off the bat be prepared as the opening scenes are hot and heavy, if you are not someone who gets easily perturbed than the boundaries that are pushed will be easily accepted and taken in stride as you read on but if you are than maybe this is not the story for you. That being said this is ”fantasy” we are reading not reality based so it should be remembered that pretty much anything goes when the imagination is given free rein. The sexual intensity that drove the characters in the first book is still at the forefront in this second and at times comes close for me in overshadowing the other story lines that are touched on, not quite becoming too much but definitely making it known that this is INDEED an erotic romance. How does one overcome despair after losing their greatest love, maybe by finding out that love comes in many different levels and that by opening up to possibilities can even be experienced with more than one person at a time. Chandra is still in love with Ortello even after death as he is with her, however her affections for his brothers are being renewed as well.  I was totally rooting for things to work out for the best for Adonis, his guilt from both past and present were such heavy burdens that it was not surprising he almost gave up on his own need for personal happiness. It was no surprise when Nikias turned out to be a wonderful fun character. Despite painful past taunts about his albino heritage of the three brothers he has the most positive restful outlook on life and it is exactly what Chandra finds so engaging besides his physical appeal which, like the other two Nodin brothers, is very much to her liking. Reading along as the men work out their issues along with Chandra is at times like WATCHING a ping pong game, but well worth the effort to keep up with the back and forth. I thought the ongoing conflict with the Underworld Government that keeps the Dirt Dwellers suspicious of if not fighting the Airbornes was developed a bit more quite nicely as well as we get more insight into the politics of the world that the characters inhabit. The end result of this story has some surprises in store not only for the reader but for the characters as well, setting up the next book in a way that is not so much abrupt but just leaves one wishing to know what happens next while feeling very happy for how things turned out for Chandra.
