“Ever a master of characterization and sexual tension, Patricia Ryan creates a sizzling suspense about the thin line between passion and anguish sure to heat up our reading pleasure!” —RT Book Reviews

“A steamy, sizzling, and thoroughly entertaining novel that allows the audience to partake in the adventure romance of a lifetime. The pacing is swift and the unfolding storyline provides a fascinating glimpse into a world where psi comes together with arson to create a bonfire of passion. Way to go, Pat Ryan!” —Affaire de Coeur

“A tale so full of fiery emotions and blistering passion, not to mention the wonderful characters, I closed the last page with a huge smile on my lips.” —Rendezvous

“The most remarkable aspect of this novel is the author’s empathic treatment of India’s [psychic] condition. This situation creates some unique sexual tension, including the well-handled description of desire in a man’s mind. Women reading romances are occasionally treated to token narratives about passion and desire from a hero’s point of view. Author Patricia Ryan takes that point of view one step further, with fascinating results. Readers will not want to put this one down until they have reached the satisfying happy ending.” —Gothic Journal

    Great read full of mystery and romance

    A Burning Touch is just great. Both India and Jamie are compelling characters, who struggle with their own pasts. They have to work together in order to solve a rash of arsons, which of course rubs cop Jamie the wrong way. Patricia Ryan's writing is strong and compelling. I highly reccomend giving this book and all of Ryan's work a try.

    A lot Happens!! This is my first book by Ms. Ryan and I loved

    A lot Happens!! This is my first book by Ms. Ryan and I loved it. I won't go into the plot, as it has been explained already, but this is a wonderful story. My heart ached for India and all the sadness she had in her life. Jamie, was pig headed over India's gift, but you soon learn why. There is love making, but it is tender, sensual and not of the erotica type. I loved the feather in the story, oh how I could visualize it!!!! I bought this book as part of the bundle, called Bodyguard, which is a great deal - 5 author's - no cliff hangers. This is a great read, well worth your time and money. (ljb)
