Christine Feehan 'Shadow Game'

Peter Whitney started experimenting with orphan girls who showed telepathic abilities. His experiments went awry so he ‘sold’ off most of the girls, kept one and turned to other things. Twenty years later he tried again with a group of highly trained military men. Now those experiments have gone badly, he’s been killed and his daughter has to do what she can to save the men from further harm.

These are terrific characters, sexual tension was okay, follow through was good, and premise was okay. I hate to get too picky, but one of the basic rules of science fiction is that the made up conditions have to be consistent throughout the book. For example, Lily can’t touch people because their emotions and thoughts bombard her. She touches Ryland and sometimes it’s a mind meld and sometimes its not. Overall, enjoyable book but not amazing.
