With a man like him, every mission becomes personal. . .
Ever since FBI agent Keira O'Shay started tracking a young boy named Mateo, she's felt a connection even her empathic abilities can't explain. She needs to save Mateo from the cult leader holding him hostage. Nothing can interfere with that--not even the reappearance of Luke Ransom, the hot-as-hell fire captain she's regretted walking out on for three long years.
Losing Keira left Luke vulnerable--in every way. When they were together, the powers each possesses were mysteriously enhanced. But it's the sexy, surprising woman beneath the tough exterior that Luke's really missed. Even if she betrayed him utterly. And even if agreeing to help her uncover a government conspiracy means watching his life and his heart go up in flames again. . .
Praise for Joan Swan and Fever
"Swan's gutsy, jaw-dropping style will have readers talking!" --New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione
"Smart, emotional and unputdownable." --New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Tyler
In Swan's second Phoenix Rising novel, strongly delineated characters and a terrific romance suffer from the opacity of the series' conspiratorial underpinnings. Firefighters Keira O'Shay and Luke Ransom and their team developed paranormal abilities after exposure to unknown chemicals in a fire. Though madly in love with Keira, Luke excised her from his life when she joined the FBI; he became an ATF agent. They meet three years later while trying to defuse a Waco-like situation, realize their powers strengthen in tandem, and rescue a young boy who's psychically connected to Keira. She discovers the child is a pawn for sinister forces and turns to Luke for help, along with their onetime partner Teague and his wife, Alyssa (stars of Fever). Keira and Luke's love blossoms anew, but emotional scars left by her painful childhood threaten their tenuous reunion. Readers will welcome the return of Alyssa's scene-stealing brother, Mitch, although it's a distraction when other members of the original team are introduced.
