Boredom Reigns Giveaway: Forged in Fire

Beth Brown doesn’t believe in premonitions until she dreams a sexy stranger is gunned down during the brutal hijacking of a commercial airliner. When events in her dream start coming true, she heads to the flight’s departure gate. To her shock, she recognizes the man she’d watched die the night before.

Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters comes from a bloodline of elite warriors with psychic abilities. When Zane and two of his platoon buddies arrive at Sea-Tac Airport, he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses. Then she arrives—a leggy blonde who sets off a different kind of alarm.

As Beth teams up with Zane, they discover the hijacking is the first step in a secret cartel’s deadly global agenda and that key personnel within the FBI are compromised. To survive the forces mobilizing against them, Beth will need to open herself to a psychic connection with the sexy SEAL who claims to be her soul mate.


Trish McCallan lives in the wilds of Washington State.

An avid animal lover, she currently shares her home with two golden retrievers, a black lab mix and a cat.

Originally, the manuscript was titled Zane's War and both the contests it finaled in were under this title.

Back in mid February of 2010, I discovered J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, and spent the next ten days totally immersed in the BDB world. I don't think I slept more than a couple of hours a night and my dreams were filled with Wrath, Rhage, V, Z, Butch and Phury. Even after I finished the books, I kept thinking about them. And then one night I had a very different dream. I actually dreamed the entire opening sequence of Forged in Fire. When I awoke, the scene was so clear in my head, I had to get it down. I guess you could say I was driven. I abandoned the project I was revising at the time, and started working on Zane. I've always felt the Black Dagger Warriors inspired Zane and his warrior brethren.

Up until Forged in Fire, I had been a plotter. Zane's book was pantzed every step of the way. I had no idea what was going to happen from chapter to chapter. And I hated it.

Every single hero and secondary hero in the Forged Series are a tribute to my favorite author. Zane, Cosky, Rawls, Mac and Chastain, were all named (either first or last) after the heroes in various books by my favorite author. So far nobody has picked up on that fact!
