Phantom Desire (Psychic Menage) (Volume 2) Paperback – August 25, 2014
5 Stars: This novel is steaming hot! Havens returns to the world that she created in Sinful Surrender with a vigor that you won't soon be able to forget. Erotic romance, SciFi, & the paranormal all combine into a seamless whole. Her descriptions make everything pop in a larger than life manner while the narrative takes you on a heart pounding adventure. This uniquely inspire novel kept me captivated throughout. I will warn you, however, that a great deal of world building goes onin the first novel of the series. I'd suggest reading them in order.This novel is much more focused on the characters than on the worldaround them, as the first novel in the series was. The multifaceted, three dimensional cast of characters in this novel makes the entire story pop. The mixture of emotions throughout this novel is breathtaking. I felt for and with the characters. I also enjoyed the dialogue. The natural flow was very pleasing. The characters' exclamations are priceless. It really makes you feel like you're right there in the middle of the conversation. I also enjoyed their interactions with one another. They were real &many times comical. I still can't stop laughing about the spray tan blooper. Overall, this was a brilliant novel that I'd definitely recommend to others, and re-read myself. Havens leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, and I definitely can't wait to see what happens next.--Amazon reader
5 Stars: Book begins with a most unusual twist. This twist continues to fascinate throughout the whole story. Needless to say, it immediately captured my interest. This whole story is phenomenal. When the characters got into arguments, I found it very entertaining, even humorous at times. Emotions run high and surprising twists and turns keeps the suspense, building. The clandestine meetings adds intensity and mystery. A whole new window was opened, introducing a new world of mystery and excitement. I don't know how the author can weave so many elements together to create one dynamic, cohesive package of entertainment. The cliffhanger gently invites the reader to continue this amazing ride. --Amazon reader
5 Stars: Another great read that will keep you on your toes and very well entertained. The author did an excellent job of describing the characters and each scene. A very hot and steamy romance that keeps you in suspense until the very end --AmazonReader

5 Stars: Phantom Desire is the second book in the Psychic Ménage Series and just like the first book, I was hooked from the very beginning. Houston Havens created a unique world that has made me eager to read more about it and its characters. As I was reading, it almost felt like I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I was so engrossed in this author's characters and their development that the world around me quickly became a blur. The story line is beyond interesting, the characters will make you make empathetic to their emotions and the heat in this story exceeds in passion. I really enjoyed how real the characters seemed. The heartache they felt, the need for revenge, the love holding them together, all these emotions were detailed and described so perfectly, that I felt the same emotions going through me, as I was reading. The sex scenes are extremely hot and well placed, the story is well-written, and the story will leave you wanting more. I can't wait to dive into the next book--Amazon reader
5 Stars: Fabulous book. I was enraptured and kept reading until I could keep my eyes open no more then finished the book first thing in the morning before work. Read book one before this one to make complete sense! Trust me!
5 Stars: Houston Havens has done it again with a phenomenal book of intrigue and the romance.
An enjoyable story with a plot to go along with the sensuality of the characters. Houston Havens knows how to weave a story and make it believable, even set on an alternate world or in a different time. I would not hesitate to recommend her books to anyone who likes it hot, but who wants to hear a story as well. --Amazon Reader
From the Author
I wrote standard romance but before I submitted my first novel, a friend talked me into writing Erotica. I honestly didn't want to write that genre, it was just a sexual situation. That wasn't enough for me. I wanted more from my writing than sex. So I did it MY WAY. I ended up writing Erotic Romance (a story plot plus a sexual story plot) but that still wasn't enough for me. It wasn't enough for the readers I dreamed would devour my books. WE WANTED MORE!
My way gave readers what I'd heard them asking for. I decided to do a series, so I could weave the stories in my mind into three plot lines (a series plot with a book plot and a sexual plot). It was then I created Sinful Surrender book one of the Psychic Menage series. And quickly followed with the Paranormal flavored Phantom Desire book two of the Psychic Menage series.
I based this series plot on years of research. Things I'd learned and discovered about our reality. Secret things were going on in our world that only a chosen few knew about. I wanted to expose (like my characters Fay Avalon and Chandra Lamar) all the truths and myths and what ifs. I'd heard one of our Presidents talk about Psychic Spies, but he never told the public what or who they were.What could they do? How did they do whatever it was they did? What part of what they did was psychic? I wanted to know.
In investigating psychic spies I stumbled across D.U.M.B. and in that research I kept running into a very odd connections about a group called the Illuminati. I found more strange facts and connections about technologies we have. The public still has no clue we have it. I uncovered HAARP and other weapons and the shocking ways they were being used. Some were so far out it's hard to believe...but reality can't be denied. I found bloodline connections between the Elites and secrets about our real history that we have never been taught. I wanted to know why.
I wanted to forget writing romance and write a tell-all book - but who would read it? NO one. That's when I realized the best way to show and tell the truth is to entertain people while doing it. Based on my reviews, I've entertained you well, and in that entertaining I've opened a few eyes.
Like my life, how much of what I tell you is real and how much is fiction? Read my books and decide.

We all deal with death and the loss of a friend or loved one in our own way. We cry, withdraw into ourselves, throw ourselves into work, lash out in anger, or latch on tight to those who are living in fear of losing someone else.
No matter the coping mechanism we choose, there’s a common denominator which is essential in helping us move on and that’s LOVE.
Before we reach the last page of this story, I must warn you, they’ll be some unorthrodox scenes. Okay, it might not be weird to you but it was for this chick. I’m not into ghost sex. Yeah, you read that right. Chandra was intimate with a ghost aka Ortello. In fact, the book started off with this unusual, out of the box, sexual relations.
Not my cup of tea but her love scenes with Nikias and Andonis (alone and together) were right up my kinky alley.
Nikias’ first sexual encounter was with Chandra and he caught on fast to the act of fuckery. Gotta love a man who can take direction. 😉 And Adonis, I have four words for you…
“drawer of sexual treasures”
If you are into kink and toys, then you’ll love what he pulled out for their pleasure.
Even though they are several chapters of bedroom action, Chandra does see some brief action on the field. The short time away leads to a few major bombshells. Yup, humungous cliffhanger but I won’t be speaking on that. If you want to know, then you must buy the book. A purchase I’m sure you WON’T REGRET making.

* I believe you should read book 1 first, so you can understand the amazing world built by the author*
A thrilling continuation of a wonderful series. Menage taken to another level!
When I first saw the cover, I was a bit disappointed by the third male almost hidden in the shadows. After I read the book, this cover became an obsession. It is so well crafted and thought out, it compliments the story perfectly. Amazing!
Mind traveler Chandra fall in love with Ortello and his brothers while on the run from her corrupt government. When tragedy hits the Nodin's family, she must find strength within the unknown so she can save her future and the Nodin's brothers.
Chandra is a rich character, that learns how to resurface stronger from grief and pain.
"You are acting like our lives are a play to be acted out, and when our parts are done we make our grand exit left, from the stage of life... by dying."
"What was the lesson I was supposed to have learned from this never ending pain?"
Nikias is the unexpected perfect man. Oh, I love his character!
"More times than not, it's the women who find the courage to face an issue and then address it. Men? We tend to stick our heads in the sand and hope it'll all go away."
"Who is the ghost? How do we know for sure...here in this physical world, we're not the ghosts in waiting, and the ghost is the one with the real life? Perhaps death here is really life there. Maybe death here is rebirth into real life on the other side."
Andonis is a deep, hot character! Like Chandra he wants the control.
"The three diamonds symbolized me, you, and Nikias. The Celtic symbol on the back is our beloved Ortello. Never to be forgotten and forever watching over us. Because of him, we three have found each other in an everlasting love."
"I'm in control now, not you. I can tease you all day if I like. I can build you to a climax but never give you satisfaction. Or I can let you come here and there throughout your seduction."
Houston Haven's work is a breath of fresh air!
The author is so incredibly original, that her world built and plot takes the reader to unimaginable places.
Her characters are well-rounded and believable, even when they are ghosts.
The book is fast-paced and the plot is full of twists and turns. The intensity level grows accordingly with the pace and the story keeps the readers guessing until the last page of the book.
Yes, I took a half star out of my review, because of the end. It's good, but I wasn't expecting the cliffhanger. It makes me wants to read book 3 today, so Ms. Havens, hurry up!
Oh, have I mentioned how addictive this series is?
I've been talking and recommending book one to everybody since the day that I've finished reading it, and book 2 is as good, if not better than the first book.
