Joan Swan writes the romance between these characters so well.
Amy (So Many Reads)
Luke is an amazing character in the sense that he's completely vulnerable to Keira and the emotions she stirs in him.
I highly recommend Blaze to anyone who enjoys a suspenseful story, and values an emotionally-driven romance.

Format: Paperback
During a "bizarre" firefight mission, the lives of agents Keira O'Shay and Luke Ransom were altered forever. Keira came out of that chemical inferno with enhanced psychic abilities: ever since that warehouse fire, she is a clairaudient, a person able to communicate telepathically and hear distant voices and other people's thoughts. Luke acquired the ability to deflect fire and bullets. Not only did they use to be a formidable match professionally, their new abilities intensified when they were together, connecting them also in a more intimate level. But when "family-guy" Luke asked Keira to bring their relationship to a deeper level of commitment , Keira, a woman with a tragic past and a lousy childhood, decided to quit her job as a firefighter and become an FBI agent instead. The break-up was inevitable. Luke is not a flexible man and tends to see the world in black and white...either with me or without me. Neither does Keira clearly state the reasons behind her aversion to motherhood and feeling of inadequacy . For a good part of the novel, Luke will be unaware of her dark past of foster-care child, abused and tortured, starved physically and emotionally. She may feel "historically, environmentally, genetically" inadequate for the role of mother, but it will be her involvement in a FBI mission as a SWAT agent three years after breaking up with Luke that will prove how misled she is about herself. Two things will become clear in the general atmosphere of mystery and military secrets: with her generous and brave heart, she has a natural mother instinct, and she cannot live without Luke.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Joan Swan writes another riveting romantic suspense that had me neglecting my duties as wife and mother. What can I say...I needed to find out what happened, so I read whenever my youngest daughter slept, my oldest daughter was in school, and my husband was knee deep into errands out of the house. =) And I also read whenever I could sneak it in when the family was home and trying to drive me crazy. (I actually hid somewhere to read. Sometimes a mother who is an avid reader has to.)
The first page alone was action packed and definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
"Blaze" picks up with two new characters who I was drawn to the minute I was introduced to them. Luke, though, had an appearance in the first book to the Phoenix Rising series and he definitely has captured my attention more in "Blaze".
The minute I was introduced to Keira O'Shay, I had a great connection with her. She was one kick-butt woman who could handle her own. She never thought though, she would be working with her ex-lover, Luke Ransom (by the way...Teague move over, hun...because Luke stole my heart).
Keira is a FBI agent and has been tracking a little boy by the name of Mateo, who she needs to get back to a co-worker of hers. He was kidnapped years ago and it is up to her to get him back. Luke ends up in the middle of everything when Keira finds Mateo. He has no idea who the little boy is and why Keira wants to find him. Of course, he hasn't seen Keira in over three years so she may have moved on after she left him.
When Keira does save the little boy and gets him back to her co-worker, she never thought, the person she thought she could trust, turns on her.

Format: Paperback
This is Book 2 in the Phoenix Rising Series. Joan Swan has such a good story in this series. I am hooked. I suggest you read Fever before this one, as things will make a lot more sense. Blaze is just as good as Fever and probably better because you get to continue on with characters that you met in Fever.

This story starts out with Keira, who works for the FBI and is SWAT, on a mission to rescue children from what she was told was a religious compound. Little does she know that fate would throw her into a situation with Luke, the man she walked out on three years prior because they wanted different things. Luke and Keira quickly learn that something isn't quite right with this mission and the intel they have isn't accurate. From this first scene, the action starts and doesn't really stop until the end of the book.

Keira and Luke have paranormal powers that were caused by a warehouse fire several years prior involving unknown chemicals. When Luke and Keira are together their powers are amplified. One of the things they found they were able to do together was read each other minds. That is both good and bad as you can imagine, and was quite entertaining for the reader. Luke and Keira's relationship has had its ups and downs over the years. Luke so desperately wants to be with Keira and have a family. Keira freaks out at the idea of a family as they always seem to be on the run from the government and the idea that she could lose a family causes her to panic. Joan Swan writes the romance between these characters so well. It takes the entire length of the book and keeps you hanging on to see how it is going to work out. I like books where the hero and heroine steal a kiss here and a kiss there but don't jump into things right away.
