reading my friend Jill s review, I knew I wanted to get this one From the very first page I was intrigued and didn t want to stop until the end This debut novel is not without faults, but overall it kept me invested and I read it in one day Not only that, I now want to read the next installment WarningDuring the first half of the book there are many racial slurs They are crude and offensive I flinched and gasped It is easily understood the reasoning behind these remarks The author is building one of the most repulsive characters read I realize the racial slang is used for the purpose of plot driven character development In this book, the juxtaposition of these character s thoughts and language with that of other characters reinforce the egregious nature of hatred and racism I m not familiar at all with prison but like most everyone have read some of the things that happen there I think JS did a good job touching on 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 of murder and sent to prison for life Of course, there is so muchbehind his conviction.Dr Alyssa Foster is his means 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 undercover operations 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 wantingI keep wanting to come back and tweek this review I think of what I wish I had added and then think, no,that would give too much away Thanks Jill for another great rec I not only want Luke s story but hoping Mitch will get his too Jane s status updates are proof enough that I never want to read this Here are a few gems The Aryan

are filled with prejudice that really bothers me As a bi racial woman, I find myself particularly sensitive to books which use racial slurs A couple racial epithets, I can deal with but when there areeven when they are part of character depiction I m insulted and turned off I don t want to knowand I just want to set the book down and walk away As a matter of fact, that s exactly what I did with Fever.As the book begins we are introduced to a mixed race Asian heroine who is about to examine a Caucasian male prison inmate She notices white supremacist tattoos on him and soon meets his escape partner who makes no bones about displaying his revilement of all races who are not white These are graphic descriptions We are also given vivid details of how he feels other races should be treated It is disgusting and it makes me think poorly of the hero, who aligned himself with the white supremacist culture in order to survive prison I understand it was his coping mechanism, but it really bothered me to see this side the hero knowing he is going to end up in a bi racial relationship I thought about it throughout the story It made me question the validity of his feelings and wonder when in the future that aspect of his life was going to reemerge.I eventually picked the book back up and skimmed through it I was curious to know what happened, but the damage was done early in the book The great characters that I met skimming the following chapters didn t mean squat cause the tone of the book, in my mind, still revolved around the two inmates I met early in the book The author killed the racism in a vicious way pages before I set the book down the first time and I didn t see the racism in my skimming the second time I picked up the book Yes, skimming isn t really reading, but I wanted to know what happened at the end I skimmed through a sexy, romantic suspense I think I could have really dug Fever had the racial slurs not been present I ve read other reviews of the book and know that I m in the minority of people who feel this way Others have gobbled the book up Don t let my opinion of Fever prevent you from reading it It s Joan Swan s debut book and the first book in her Phoenix Rising series I m hoping book two, Blaze, or book three, Inferno, will be a better hit with me Blaze comes out in October 2012 and Inferno does not yet have a release date Posted

driven ride from beginning to end Doctor 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 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 job of evoking emotions from her characters I felt Alyssa s fear and her frustration.Teague Creek is one of the inmates who have taken Alyssa While he is the less violent 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 course of the book, there are glimpses of another side of him The author eases the softer side of Teague slowly and when I saw these glimpses, I wanted to knowabout 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 andeffective ways to accomplish this.I 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 one to simply do things as she is told, Alyssa stands up to Teaguethan once 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 heart.In other circumstances, Alyssa and Teague would have found each other eventually But I think with this thrill ride of a story, Joan Swan brings in the action and the suspense to another level, making their meeting a memorable and lasting one Even in the early pages of the book, you can already see the natural way Alyssa and Teague interact with one another There is also a slight paranormal element in this book Teague has a hot touch Literally However, to him, the gift isof a curse He doesn t know how to wield his talent, sooften than not, he is harming someone by accident As he struggles with this gift and towards the goal he desperately seeks, I grew to like Teague a littleReading about his struggles made me admire his determination.All in all, FEVER is a solid start for a new series that blends the romance and the suspense in perfect unison, topping it off with a dash of the paranormal ARC provided by author 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 organization from his past that want 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

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 outin the next book.The reviews for this book are all over the place Many readers are upset by the racial slurs coming from the second escaped con This character is part of 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 out Thankfully, he didn t I m looking forward tobooks in this series My rating 4.5 Stars Every once in a while, I get

debut romance novel that I loved from page one She takes a very unlikely hero, an escaped lifer from San Quentin, 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 truth of some people s bigotry It may be hard for some readers to read But it is HONEST, and imperative to this story s overall 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 one 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 of the Phoenix Rising Series, will be coming in October, 2012 from Kensington Brava, and will be Luke

characters and a satisfying romance The story starts out 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 inquisitive nature make her a likable heroine and the fact that she doesn t quiver and cower is an additional plus While Teague starts out as a typical hard ass alpha, he slowly reveals his inner vulnerability and need for someone to believe in him Their relationship develops at a believable pace and their reactions are quite realistic given the circumstances.Overall, an entertaining read reminiscent of other wonderful books in the genre, such as Perfect by Judith McNaught and Unlawful Contact by Pamela Clare I look forward to continuing with the series Fast paced romantic suspense with a twist of the paranormal you won t be able to put down
