Overview

She's already killed him twice this week.

Phaedra, a fury, is bound to make Lieutenant Luke Lazaros atone for his supposed crime, but her usual method of inflicting pain doesn't work very well on a phoenix with the power to be reborn every time he dies. However, each rebirth leaves him with an overwhelming need for sex. Phaedra's new plan: to drive Luke mad with desire....

But Phaedra has never touched anyone—even herself—except to cause pain. She's an innocent when it comes to pleasure...but Luke isn't. His touch is a revelation, arousing a passion in Phaedra that is as delicious as it is terrifying. For no matter how much she wants Luke, giving herself to a man risks awakening her goddess's wrath....

The Fury and the Fever started out well; the first few pages pulled me in and convinced me to buy the book. And Phaedra and Luke are interesting enough characters, with flaws and wounds of their own. Unfortunately, there is no real resolution to the story; Luke never gets justice for himself or his murdered comrades. Plus, I hated the way the Goddess Athena was portrayed. The ending left too much unresolved, and left me deeply unsatisfied. Sixty pages was not long enough to tell this story. -- lyradora

I wish the story was longer but I found it kept my attention the whole time. It had a good storyline with the soldier having a secret. I enjoyed the character of a fury, which I have yet to read on. VERY GOOD SHORT NOVELLA!!

Man, I love a sizzling romance with equally powerful characters, and this one has that in spades. Both Luke and Phaedra have incredible supernatural powers and give as good as they get. The sexual chemistry crackles off the page in one intense sexually charged scene after another that will leave you breathless and panting. But both characters have a softer, vulnerable side too, and that's what really made me root for them. I just loved this story from beginning to end, another great addition to Draven's Mythica series. Definitely recommend!

Phaedra is a sassy, feisty Fury with a job to do, and Luke is a stubborn, smart-mouthed, unrepentant man that is making her job very difficult. As they match wits, and try to outsmart one another, they come to know each other's reasons for why they do what they do and find that they are both missing many things in their lives that they never realized. This is one smokin' hot read! I devoured this novella in record time, unable to peel my eyes from the page - I'm going to be dreaming about Luke tonight, you can be sure ;-)

My only complaint about this book is that it was too short...would have loved more time with these characters! Hot and sexy, but also tender and touching as two tortured souls find solace and acceptance in one another. A great read!
