Everybody’s chasing Victory: a power-hungry scientist, a corrupt conglomerate, and her own government.

Victory Winters is on the run. A world-renowned geneticist, her mission involves conquering disease and improving quality of life. But a co-worker has been murdered, putting Victory and her mission in danger. Chasing her are all sorts of men who want to recruit and control her, manipulating her genetic secrets and research for their own corrupt purposes.

Naval officer Tristan Farraday is undercover investigating Biotec, a conglomerate that trumpets a better tomorrow in its bright, shiny annual reports. But Tristan’s bosses suspect that beneath Biotec’s carefully-managed exterior lies more than simple violations of a few experimental protocols.

Farraday is following a trail of murder, kidnapping, and blackmail. The trail leads him to Victory, who has been forced into Biotec’s world. Can Tristan chase down the truth and win the race for Victory?

 Chasing Victory (The Winters Sisters Book 1)
She’s a brilliant, beautiful and intriguing geneticist currently researching canine DNA and its potential benefits for humans. She also has a secret, she can communicate with animals, but unlike her fantasy equivalent, all is not song and dance. Victory is on the run, trying to stay just one step ahead of a conglomerate that wants to use her research for vile purposes. Blackmailed into working for them, Victory is taken to an island paradise, most likely with only a one way ticket, unless undercover Naval Officer, Tristan Farraday can figure out a way to stop the research and save Victory. Gifted with extremely powerful hearing, what will Tristan discover to aid in his rescue? They say the walls can whisper secrets, is it true

Joanne Jaytanie’s Chasing Victory has its share of violence, but in all, it is a quieter paranormal romance, not meek, but controlled while allowing a budding romance between Tristan and Victory to grow. With all of the talk of DNA in the news these days, this makes a perfect fantasy escape into a world where science and intrigue make a vivid contrast to romance between two people whose DNA obviously is compatible! A light suspense novel with a touch of the paranormal, captivating scenes and villains that are easy to hiss at, all while cheering and sighing for both Tristan and Victory! I enjoyed the pace, the characters and Ms. Jaytanie's style of writing, simply fabulous!

I received this copy from Joanne Jaytanie in exchange for my honest review.
