Firefighter TEAGUE CREEK is not the man he used to be. Six years ago while on a routine call, a warehouse explosion left him with burns over eighty percent of his body. When he awoke in a hospital, his injuries had miraculously healed, leaving him with the burning question: what really happened in that warehouse?  Subsequent events added to his suspicions: forced separation from his engine company, interrogation by mysterious military personnel, restricted visitation with his wife and, ultimately, her suicide.

But the bizarre circumstances didn’t end there.  Two years after his wife’s death, he has been convicted of murdering the first woman he dated since, incarcerated at San Quentin State Penitentiary and denied an appeal.  He’s lost the daughter he lived for, Kat, and the career as a firefighter he loved.  Believing the original warehouse fire is somehow linked to everything that’s happened since, Teague gives up on the system.  Instead of fighting an invisible enemy, he scrapes together a plan to escape prison, reclaim Kat and flee to South America.

Doctor ALYSSA FOSTERis only two weeks away from attaining her loftiest goal to date: securing an attending radiologist position at one of the finest hospitals in the country.  Her success means status, respect and proving her worth to her family.  But Alyssa’s future is forever altered when she is abducted by one of her forensic patients, Teague Creek.  Early on Alyssa realizes this is no ordinary man.  He has a strange ability to create heat within his body, which he uses to both hurt and heal.

It doesn’t take Teague long to figure out he’s grabbed the wrong woman.  Instead of a bargaining chip to use in exchange for Kat, he’s saddled with a witness. And she’s picked up on his developing pyrokenetic abilities.  As the two reluctantly grow closer and she eventually believes his story, a bond emerges between them. And that bond only strengthens as Alyssa helps Teague both embrace his powers and demystify their origin. During their trek across California to find Kat, they both find themselves attracted to each other in ways neither of them expected. But that attraction may just get them both killed. Because this isn’t about a missing little girl anymore. Someone wants Teague gone. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of him.

  1. Welcome to My Book Addiction and More today,Ms. Swan….This book sounds awesome. Firefighters,what not to like….

  2. sounds like a great read and I am definitely putting this one on my wish list. the cover is smoking if you'll pardon the pun.

  3. I can't wait for Fever, I love romantic suspense books especially when you add a paranormal twist to it. The cover for Fever is gorgeous, I have said that repeatedly. I've even taken to stalking Joan just to get little sneaky looks at Fever (and her gorgeous bookmarks!). A very talented lady indeed 🙂

  4. Besides having a hot cover this had me hooked: "When he awoke in a hospital, his injuries had miraculously healed, leaving him with the burning question: what really happened in that warehouse?"

  5. Its a great cover. I cant wait to read it and the entire last paragraph of the blub totally pulled me in. Even if i hadnt read the first 3 after that one it would be on my wishlist.

  6. The characters are what appeals to me the most. Teaque sounds like a man who deserves his happy ending. Poor man he's been through quite an ordeal being in an explosion; his losses are what makes me want to root him on. I know Joan is going to save him!

  7. Oooh sounds like a great story! I must read this book to find out if Teague gets what he wants. I hope he does, he has really been through a lot. The cover of Fever is so sexy! I have a thing for sexy tattooed men 😉
    I have never read any of Lisa Renee Jone's books before so I checked out the Vampire Warden Collection on Amazon and is sounds soo good. Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I follow your site by Liking your FB page as Jody F.

    The part of the blurb I most like is discussing Teague and what led to him being how he is now. Knowing that he got so badly burned makes me see him differently. The blurb is perfect the way it is and totally intrigues me!

    I LOVE the sound of the book and so hope I get to read it soon.

  9. I just signed up for the blog 🙂 I'm glad I did too, it looks great! I am very intrigued by the blurb because I want to know what Teague REALLY is. The cover is HOT!! I LOVE IT!!

  10. I don't think there is too much info on the blurb there is just enough to make me want to get this book and find out more about the story. 🙂 love that cover and I so want to read this book. LOL

  11. Wow, I'm overwhelmed. What a fantastic end to a hectic day! I especially love hearing specifics of what really "did" it for you. As a writer, I take chances in how I put words together, so when they hit the spot, it's uber rewarding!!

    Thank you all so much!! And thanks again Wendy for posting.

  12. I follow by the blog by email – and really enjoy it. The cover for Fever is really hot (actually, I'm late 'cause I've just been staring at it!). I would have been happy with the first and third paragraph as the blurb – it was enough to grab my attention and interest.

  13. Instead of a bargaining chip to use in exchange for Kat, he’s saddled with a witness. And she’s picked up on his developing pyrokenetic abilities.

    That would be awesome . hello hotness for real


  14. How does Teague come back from everything that has happened to him. He does not live a charmed life. So the struggle will be immense & I want to be there with him all the way.

    I follow.


  15. I think her bio is great and really, who doesn't love that cover?? Can't wait to read whats inside! 🙂

  16. Like the cover of Fever. I'd like to learn more about that tattoo!
