My Rating:4 stars: Enjoyed - strongly recommend (A-)

Teague Creek (yes, that is his name!) is a wrongfully convicted felon in a high-security prison. His only wants are to escape, reunite with his young daughter, and live a long life away from those who want him behind bars, hurt or worse. His plans involve kidnapping a technician from a local hospital, who happens to be the girlfriend of the man who is guardian over his daughter. Of course, when he kidnaps Dr. Alyssa Foster - the wrong woman - things go from bad to worse. Top that off with a fellow inmate who is pure evil joining the escape plans, and you have a mix for an action-packed, suspenseful journey towards freedom. Nothing goes right for Teague, and he is being hunted by government officials that would rather see him dead than free again.

Right from the start I was engrossed in this story. The details and events unfolded before me in the perfect manner. The reader is given little nuggets that are just enough to keep you going and find out more. The tone is harsh, the mood is dark, but our heroine, Alyssa, seems to find a way to make it lighter and easier. In addition, Ms. Swan demonstrates excellent descriptive abilities, smoothly integrating rich detail about the scenery and plot into the story.

Overall I liked Alyssa and Teague. They fit together well and complimented one another... when he was rash, she made him stop and think, when she was hurt, he healed her. They have one of those back-and-forth, give-and-take relationships. And boy did they have steam! Thanks to a mysterious fire Teague was involved with several years back, he has the ability to increase his body temperature to way above normal. He uses his "power" to help heal, jump-start cars, and melt metal.

I am a very fast reader, and it depends for me on how fast a book moves. Fever moves and moves quickly.I loved that Ms. Swan didn't cut corners either, it's gritty in the places you look for grit and tender where it counts.You will fall for Dr. Alyssa Foster who is kidnapped by prison escapee Teague Creek. Teague is a a wrongfully convicted felon in a high-security prison and all he wants to do is prove that he's innocent. Fever is a non stop thrill ride that left me wanting more. It made me laugh, cringe and cry in many different places. It's sensual not sexual meaning I can sell it to customers who love romance but don't need every other chapter to be a steamy scene. Romantic suspense readers who don't pick this book up will be truly be missing a great read.

OMG... yep it's worth those three little letters right there!

Joan hits a home run with me her first out of the gate! Suspense thriller with a paranormal aspect unlike anything available out there today. If you want a story, and I mean a full on well plotted beginning to end story then Fever is for you. I love how the drive of the story is pulled along by the hero's conflict and resolution as opposed to the hero always being the rescurer of the heroine!

Alyssa is kidnapped by a convict (Teague) while she is treating him at a clinic. He and another prisoner Taz, have been planning this escape for a while and have everything from a getaway car, to clothes and money. They even planned on taking Alyssa as a hostage. Teague keeps saying that he needs Alyssa... but he keeps calling her Hannah. Instead of correcting him, Alyssa plays along because if Teague needs someone named Hannah and he thinks that's her, than that means he won't just kill her on the spot.

I really liked this story. At the beginning when Alyssa is kidnapped, Teague keeps talking about a Luke and how he has no clue what Luke see's in her. I was a little confused by this because this happens before you realize he thinks that she's someone else. However, at the time I honestly thought jail life had gotten to him and he was off his rocker, or there was a book previous to this story that I didn't read. But no, he starts calling her Hannah and says how he needs her as a bargaining chip. Then you realize the poor guy nabbed the wrong doctor.

One would think that this story would be a case of Stockholm syndrome but its really not. Yes, Teague kidnaps her but the entire time he protects her from Taz who wants nothing more than to rape and beat Alyssa. Teague even heals her and stitches up a knife wound she got during a run in with a gang. (Oh yes, there is a TON of action in this book) He seems like a really good and descent man and you start to wonder, what is he in jail for? Forgetting to pay his taxes? Too many traffic tickets?

I wished the cover was a bit more accurate though with the tattoos.

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Suspense and romance with a little touch of the paranormal for flavoring.

Opening Sentence: The clank-clank-clank of shackles echoes off the hospital's linoleum floors, rippling across Doctor Alyssa Foster's shoulders.

Review:

I try to give new authors props when warranted. Most debut books have problems like flow and character under-development. And when you think about it, that makes sense. These types of issues get resolved with time and experience. That being said, I thought that Fever was pretty good coming right out of the chute. Kudos goes out to you, Joan Swan!

Fever follows the story of escape convict and convicted murderer, Teague Creek, and his hostage Dr. Alyssa Foster. Teague uses Alyssa as his bargaining chip to trade for the life of his 5-year-old daughter, Kat. Along the way, Teague and Alyssa start to work together (both in bed and out) to clear Teague's good name and discover who the people were that sent him to prison for the crime he was wrongfully accused and convicted of. Okay, put like that, this book doesn't stand out among all the other suspense/romance novels available today. But wait, dear readers, there are a few key twists in this seemingly bland story.

When we first meet Teague Creek, he is portrayed as a convicted murdering racist. That is the image he perpetuates for prison survival. The real Teague is a former firefighter and devoted father; basically a good guy. He also is in way over his head when he kidnaps the wrong woman during his escape from prison. Alyssa starts out as a distressed woman that is in the wrong place at the wrong time. A convict thinks that she is the girlfriend of the man that has custody of his daughter.
