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 ›

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.

Although this is the second book in the series, I read all the others first as they were available with Kindle Unlimited. The others got me hooked, so I splurged on this one.

Blaze is the story of Luke and Keira, two former fire fighters who gained paranormal abilities after being injured in a chemical explosion.They and the rest of the team are being pursued by the ruthless government rogues that created the chemicals and is now testing them on humans.

Luke and Keira had been a couple about three years before. In this story, after a long separation, they meet again when assigned in their new roles as federal agents to a Waco-style shoot-out. Together, they rescue a bunch of children who were just about to drink the Kool-aid. Among them is a beautiful little boy who speaks only Greek, and with whom Keira has a deep and inexplicable connection. During the adventure, Luke and Keira find that their attraction to one another is stronger than ever.

I really like all the characters in this series. Swan excels at making each of them different, and at creating riveting plotlines. Mateo, the aforementioned little boy, is adorable and adds extra warmth to an already tight team.

I like Luke and Keira as individual members of the team. What I don't like is their relationship as a couple. They argue constantly, and sometimes it's camaraderie and sometimes it's just plain passive-aggressive or mean. Keira's childhood baggage has made her noncommittal, and her love for Luke is constantly short-circuited by fear; she pulls him in, then pushes him away, over and over. They seem immature, and their sex is more rough than romantic. They're my least favorite couple in the team. These issues may not bother you, though. It's just my opinion.

My favorite is still Fever, book one, with Teague and Alyssa's story (You must read that one!).
