Dr. Whitney had experimented on Dahlia La Blanc when she was four years old resulting in amplifying her psychic gifts and her inability to relate to people. Part of Dahlia's people disconnect is due to her realization as a young child that adults feared her as a powerful mental freak, but also because she absorbs their emotional charges that she can only release through a violent discharge.

Years later, Dahlia recovered stolen intelligence information for the Feds, but for the most part lives a hermit's existence avoiding people because excitement on her part leads to dangerous infernos. Someone assaults her swampy home and kills her caretakers, but has not attained the final objective yet when Nicholas Trevane of "ghostwalkers" arrives at the battlefield seeking Dahlia; he too is a by-produce of the Whitney experiments. They must work in tandem to uncover who amongst their teammates has turned traitor, but the attraction between Dahlia and Nicholas is so great, she fears she will combust and take a city with her.

MIND GAME is an exciting paranormal romance that not only stars two delightfully unique characters with an interesting relationship dilemma (sort of like Ladyhawke) and the return of the stars of SHADOW GAME enhance the action.
