Risk of Love and Magic (A California Malcolm Novel Book 3) by Patricia Rice

Nadine is being held captive in an insane asylum by her stepfather, the General.  When she helped his enemies, he incarcerated her and intends to keep her there as a weapon he can use whenever he needs her.  He doesn't expect her to escape...

Library Thing and the author gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  There are earlier books in the series if you wish to grab them all.

Nadine is psychic and has been sending messages about needing help.  She occasionally calls too, whenever she can sneak it in.  She's well guarded and watched closely, but she still manages to get out the door.  The best part of the escape is Magnus.  He's gotten the messages, knows she is the Librarian that helped his family and he wants to help her.  He just didn't realize how hard that was going to be.

It's a good thing that Magnus and his brothers and friends are all special op boys.  They fight hard, have great weapons and technology to use, and they don't back down.  Nadine wants to kill the General's computer, but the new tech geek has changed all the passwords, routes, and hidden caches so she doesn't have access anymore.  Magnus would be happy with just killing the General, but he tries to tone it down for Nadine.  With Nadine, it's first things first and she has to move her sister before the General nabs her.  The General puts chips in people, pets, cars, you name it.  He wants to know where they are and why and he wants to use them for revenge.  

This is a world of high tech with experienced warriors but the General is crazy and that gives him an advantage.  When Magnus begins to realize he's falling love with Nadine, it gets even more intense.  By the end of the story you better be hanging on to your seat; it's a wild ride.  Here you have an action-packed romance that sweeps you along in their adventure.  I liked it.
