This fun paranormal series combines exciting adventures with people who have intriguing skillsets and I am always intrigued to see what new psychic phenomenon is being explored. Although this particular story had the wonderful spice that is characteristic of this author’s stories, it felt a little drawn out, especially since the danger to Lauren is only partially resolved at first and I found myself thinking that the action was intense in spurts but things felt a little rushed at the end to me. I enjoy this series but I didn’t quite feel the connection with these characters that I have felt with many of the other couples in the Phoenix Agency. There are enjoyable glimpses of some of the fascinating folks who were introduced in previous titles in the series and the potential for other adventures leads me to hope that that there will be plenty of additional stories about others with exotic powers who join with the agency members in combating evil.
“Feel the Heat” by Desiree Holt is book 5 of the ‘Phoenix Agency’ series which features a remarkable group of individuals who do corporate security, hostage negotiations and rescue. The skills of the men honed by training in various military organizations is complemented by a remarkable group of women who have unusual psychic talents. Lauren Cahill is a touch healer who shares her gift with carefully selected individuals but unfortunately must deal with a lack of support from her family, hounding by the press and an escalating stalker whenever she utilizes her psychic talents. Her friendship with Mark and Faith Halloran prompts them to intervene when they discover she is dealing with an unspecified threat. Lauren has trouble deciding whether she is grateful for their intervention when she meets sexy Phoenix agent Troy Arsenault but they will both be grateful for Phoenix’s members and resources as they face a danger that threatens to destroy all that Lauren has built for herself.
Lauren Cahill lives as quietly as she could, protecting her ability as a psychic healer. But danger brings Troy Arsenault into her life—along with scorching sex and intense emotions. Resisting him isn’t even a question, in or out of the bedroom. He protects her from the evil stalking her even as he teaches her what erotic sex is all about. When she’s kidnapped, his world is turned upside down and he employs all the resources of The Phoenix Agency to rescue her. He won’t rest until she’s back safely in his life—and in his bed for the rest of their lives.
