RT Rating

Swan’s novel packs in plenty of suspense and heat, with a slight touch of the paranormal. Although the main characters are somewhat inconsistent in their reactions, and the event that triggered Teague’s paranormal powers is not fully explained, most people will be able to overlook this and still find Fever an entertaining read. Additionally, the team of friends and family, who come together to save the day and exonerate Teague, are an interesting and well-written set of characters.

Convicted murderer Teague Creek is in the prison wing of a hospital, desperate to escape and find his daughter. He takes Dr. Alyssa Foster hostage and uses her to break free. But the spark between them leads to unexpected complications, for Alyssa, who is drawn to this man with nothing to lose, and for Teague, who realizes he actually does: Alyssa. What’s more, it’s not just the police who are after Teague now. As they are tracked by undercover operatives, Alyssa becomes convinced that Teague is innocent and their mutual attraction produces almost as much heat as Teague’s unusual powers.

Review of Fever (Phoenix Rising #1) by Joan Swan

Submitted by twocoulters on October 26, 2012 - 10:11am.

Wicked...Decadently Sinful...Prepare to be burned. Swan redefines sizzle and spark with heat-driven passion.

Condemned to life without parole, Teague Creek finds himself with no choice but to break out of prison. His best chance of freedom is to stage his escape during an exam at the local hospital. Dr. Alyssa Foste is taken hostage during a daring prison escape; you would think that is the worst thing to happen – it is only the beginning. As the passion between them heats up, so does the threat to their lives.

This story has the perfect balance of action/adventure and hot, steamy romance. Very fast paced, it is full of action, mystery, suspense and romance. Readers also meet Luke Ransom the hero from Blaze, the 2nd in the Phoenix Rising series!
