"Strong romantic suspense"
Jake Ingram is a well-known economist who is aiding the FBI
in their investigation of the World Bank Heist. The
Ingrams adopted Jake at the age of twelve and there is
nobody he is closer to than his adopted sibling Zach. Jake
has no memories of his life before he was twelve and that
problem is why Zach is in so much trouble. Somebody has
kidnapped him as he was leaving Glen Laurel University
thinking he was his brother, confined him in a deserted
farmhouse and drugged him.
The kidnappers told psychiatrist and hypnotist Dr. Maisy
Dalton that Jake was brainwashed after being in a cult for
over a decade. When Maisy sees Zach for the first time he
tries to tell her that he isn't Jake. After seeing how
his "family" treats him, she finally believes him and they
make their escape. When the kidnappers find them, a battle
ensues and only one group will walk away from it alive.
Maggie Shayne always writes a riveting work of romantic
suspense but she out does even herself in her latest work
ENEMY MIND. The two protagonists are attracted to each
other from their first meeting but because of some painful
events in her past, she is afraid to act on her feelings.
Zach, who always thought he was a wimp compared to Jake,
shows that he is a true hero as he defends the woman he
loves against those who seek to destroy her. ENEMY MIND is
the first installment in what looks to be a great series.

She's got the wrong brother!
SUBJECT: Zach Ingram, brawny brain, aka Professor Ingram
FAMILY HISTORY: The Ingram heir, brother of financial whiz
DEEPEST SECRET: He'd always envied his brother -- until
now . . .
Professor Zach Ingram was believed to have classified
information about genetically altered humans, and agents
from the top secret MEDUSA wanted it enough to kidnap him.
But was the iron-willed academic truly the one they sought?
Beautiful psychiatrist Dr. Maisy Dalton was unwittingly
brought in to hypnotize the ruggedly handsome Zach into
talking about the "memories" hidden within him. But the
innocent doctor couldn't control her feelings for the
mysterious man who spoke of mistaken identity and something
called the Extraordinary Five. In her heart, Maisy knew
Zach was telling the truth, and was willing to risk her
life and love to help him unravel the secrets of MEDUSA and
the potentially dangerous X5 . . .
