Fast paced romantic suspense with a twist f the paranormal you won t be able to put down Fever4 StarsImprisoned for a crime he did not commit Teague Creek escapes with a hostage and is n the run not nly from the police but from dangerous rogue peratives who will stop at nothing to silence him nce and for all Dr Alyssa Foster knows nothing f the man who has kidnapped her A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) other than the fact that he awakens a deep seated need and desire within her Surely there is to this desperate bid for freedom than meets the eye A solid if rather far fetched plot appealing characters and a satisfying romance The story startsut well and builds consistently with some exciting action scenes and paranormal abilities that are smoothly interwoven within the narrative Nevertheless the conspiracy elements are underdeveloped and the last few chapters progress too rapidly with several leaps in logic that lack foundation Alyssa s stubborn determination and inuisitive nature make her a likable heroine and the fact t Every nce in a while I get really lucky when I discover a great book by an author that I haven t read before r a debut author who is new to everyone and I want to shout at the rooftops that I ve just finished an awesome read FEVER is that bookJoan Swan triple RWA Golden Heart finalist and a double Daphne Du Maurier finalist has a reason to celebrate Her debut romance novel Fever will be released n February 28 2012 And it s a super fan freakin tastic read So prepare now for that shout ut FEVER is a scorching hot debut romance novel that I loved from page In the End one She takes a very unlikely hero an escaped lifer from San uentin and creates a character that I fell HARD for and supported whole heartedly Her heroine Alyssa is just as admirable and fierce Both are strong characters with sharp tongued dialogue with tangible emotions in every scene FEVER is a challenging read filled with the sick truthf some people s bigotry It may be hard for some readers to read But it is HONEST and imperative to this story s verall expansion Joan stays true to her characters they are not wishy washy and she does a brilliant job in creating a story that is real and riveting at the same time I simply cannot find ne thing that I didn t like about this book Her secondary characters Luke and Mitch were just as charismatic and I am happy to say that Joan will be writing their stories as well Blaze Book Two f the Phoenix Rising Series will be coming in October 2012 from Kensington Brava and will be Luke Ransom s story It s another typical long day at work for Dr Alyssa Foster when a prisoner is brought into the infirmary It doesn t take long for things to go sideways The guards have been locked up and Alyssa has a chain wrapped around her neck and is being thrown into a getaway car with two escaped convicts Teague Creek has spent three years in prison for a murder he didn t commit Now he has a hostage he deems essential to his plan The police are closing in So is an rganization from his past that wants him deadSomeone recommended this book to me a few years ago and I finally picked it up to give it a try I have to say I really liked it The story is mainly romantic suspense with a paranormal element It is fast paced and was very hard to put down The romance was believable and I liked both the hero and the heroine The conspiracy plot was a bit under developed But since this is the first book in the series I m sure we ll find ut in the next bookThe reviews for this book are all ver the place Many readers are upset by the racial slurs coming from the second escaped con This character is part f the Aryan Brotherhood and that is what I would expect from someone like that If the hero would talk like that I would have thrown the book ut Thankfully he didn t I m looking forward to books in this series My rating 45 Stars Posted n Under the CoversDebut author Joan Swan takes you n a pulse pounding no holds barred suspense driven ride from beginning to endDoctor Alyssa gets caught up in a royal mess Two inmates working together have taken her from her workplace and brought her along a ride that changes the course The Age of Treachery of her life Scared beyond reason Alyssa tries to wrap her head around the situation that is happening to her I found that I really liked Alyssa She showed courage in times when I would have crawled into a ball and wept Joan does a fantastic jobf evoking emotions from her characters I felt Alyssa s fear and her frustrationTeague Creek is ne f the inmates who have taken Alyssa While he is the less violent The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of the two inmates he is still scary as hell I had a hard time liking Teague He was pushy demanding frustrating and dangerous but through the coursef the book there are glimpses Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of another sidef him The author eases the softer side f Teague slowly and when I saw these glimpses I wanted to know about him However I did have a problem with the racial slurs in this book I found it difficult to read and although it was meant to make me hate a particular character I do think there are better and effective ways to accomplish thisI mentioned earlier about feeling Alyssa frustration and what I mean by that is that Teague has several secrets that he holds back from Alyssa Not ne to simply do things as she is told Alyssa stands up to Teague than nce Again I have to commend her for her courage Teague is still a convict after all But whenever Alyssa was frustrated with Teague I was as well I loved that she pushed him asking him to trust her with his secrets Teague bottles things in and his frustration is evident as well when his plans don t go his way However all this is understandable because what Teague is after is very important and holds his heartIn ther circumstances Alyssa and Teague would have found each When a Man Loves a Woman other eventually But I think with this thrill ridef a story Joan Swan. When Dr Alyssa Foster is taken hostage by a prison inmate she knows she's in deep trouble Not just because Teague Creek is desperate for freedom but because the moment his fingers brush again.
Ing n the issues involving gangs racism etc and the underlying hatred that fuels their deeds Teague Creek fits easily the character from the book cover Tall incredibly muscular and totally sexy I liked him A firefighter and paramedic his world falls apart when he is wrongly convicted f murder and sent to prison for life Of course there is so much behind his convictionDr Alyssa Foster is his means Keep From Falling of escape While performing an examination she is taken hostage by Teague She is smart persistent and a survivor and you can feel his frustration in trying to get her to cooperate I liked how the author slowly reveals his character Teague is neither trained nor skilled in undercoverperations He is a survivor wrongly accused with a deep desire to escape Alyssa becomes confused knowing this man doesn t fit the criminal he has been labeled The heat between them is a slow burn The attraction is there and as they spend time together it becomes sizzling hot There were a few things here that didn t add up but in no way really detracted from the story As I mentioned I read this in a day and didn t want to put it down until the end I liked the secondary characters the PNR aspect is very interesting and the love scenes were hot I felt the ending was a little rushed but that could be just me wanting I keep wanting to come back and tweek this review I think Catalogue the Insanity of what I wish I had added and then think nothat would give too much away Thanks Jill for another great rec I notnly want Luke s story but hoping Mitch will get his too Unfortunately I can t handle the racial slurs in this book And yes I realize they are in there to make us not like a certain character at least that is my assumption I am dnf ing after pg 50 r so Although because his character is friends with r at least tagging along with the hero he has a lot Shrek of page timeBut for me personally there is no reason to use the N wordr a slur against an Asian woman in a book If you don t want me to like the character than think f a different way to do it I just can t handle language like that It really upset meOtherwise the set up for the book in the first few chapters is pretty good but I am not going to continue I debated reviewing Fever given this is a debut author and I wish nothing but the best for any aspiring writer However I also believe that readers need a fair and honest review from a person who finished the book in it s entirety The reason I finished the book is because at times I am a masochist when it comes to not DNF ing a story In all seriousness though I hoped to find something to justify why ne Look Alikes Jr. of my all time favorite authors would give a positive uote to the book What I found was the potentialf a great plot that was flawed by writing I would like to share a few high points about why this book did not work for meAnyone who reads my reviews knows that I love a dark gritty story but I also need an authenticity to the darkness Why is this aspect f the story there What purpose does it have How does a character vercome an issue Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin or walk through it Alas I asked myself these uestions when reading Fever and was not able to speculaten the answer that would further the storyline andor pull me in as a reader uite honestly Collecting and Exhibiting Computer-Based Technology: Expert Curation at the Museums of the Smithsonian Institution one reason for this is that the book began with a disturbingly negative racial tone which set theverall delivery He Remembers the Barren of the story What was most annoying is that the racial slurs used were entirely unnecessary The author already established that the character was an asshole through and through so the continued usef derogatory demoralizing racial comments added nothing but frustration and frankly a bitter and disappointing view with regard to the writing style The Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf of a debut author and her workAs an avid readerf all genres Diary of a Library Nerd: An Erotic Diary of One Woman's Metamorphosis of romance I must say that I do NOT want to read such characters as thenes portrayed in the first 13 The Stonemere Park Breast Essays: From The L.C.T.F. Archives of this book It is not an enjoyable experience norne I desire in a romance story when I read about secondary characters that are in the plot Let the Wolf Howl only to mouthff sentences such as the following These porch monkeys gonna pound your cracka faces into the pavement Whatcha doin with these honkies pretty What do you say baby Wanna taste The Resistible Rise Of Benito Mussolini of black meat It s an all you can eat buffet You know what they sayonce you ve had black you never go back Yeah like how the fuck we re gettingut f the hell hole that bitch got us into now that those niggers jacked ur ride I m going to fuck the living shit ut f this slant eyed cunt After reading those uotes if your eyebrows are shooting up to your hairline and your head is inching backward as if you could somehow physically distance yourself from the vert crassness you are not the nly Homesick one I could gon with uotes but I think I ve made my point It s disturbing uncomfortable and for me infuriating because I have read enough romance to know that you can establish a bad ruthless asshole A Criminal Affair of a character without bigotryRacial issues aside I contemplated DNF ing at the 120 page mark for the simple fact that I believe an author should establish at least a glimmerf why the reader should believe in the hero Sangue Derramado or the heroheroine forming a romantic relationship and it had not happened I still did not know why the hero was a criminal The circumstances surrounding the crime were a mystery And why I should believe he had any redeeming ualities that would result in the heroine falling for himr having any empathy towards him was eually illusive There was no justification as to why I as the reader should believe in them as a couple Both the hero and heroine s personalities were flat lacking chemistry and a believability that they could actually form a relationship f trust and love Overall the story was poorly executed and left me with a negative taste that will make me think twice before considering future releases from this authorOriginally posted at.
