****4 Stars from Scribes World!
INTO THE FIRE is an action-packed space opera with a healthy dose of romance layered in. Kerra and Aden are interesting characters, with widely divergent perspectives on life and love, which frequently brings them into conflict with each other. The cast of secondary characters includes an inventive and intriguing bunch of humans and aliens, some with excitingly perilous sexual rituals. My personal favorite was the green-skinned hunk, Emarr.

****4 Stars and a "Tantalizing" rating from Simply Ebooks!
This book is filled with exciting places, strange aliens, and even stranger customs. The characterizations of Kerra and Aden are rich and detailed, with several strong secondary characters who deserve their own story. The pace is smooth and the action fast. I found the story entertaining and very hard to put down. A recommended read.

INTO THE FIRE takes romance on a planet-hopping spree. The bond between Kerra and Aden is well developed...as they come to terms with their love for each other. The secondary characters add some interesting color to the already fantastical landscape of the setting...this is an entertaining romance ebook.

Futuristic romances work best when they are filled with adventure and excitement, and INTO THE FIRE is a perfect example of one that really works. The pace in this absorbing tale is just the right speed - fast enough to keep up the interest level, but not too fast to lose the interesting detail Ms. McPhee has included of other worlds and species. And, however engrossing thesettings, this story never ceases to be a wonderfully romantic love story between two well-developed and likable characters. The secondary characters are also finely woven into the story - especially Emarr Dengas, who, despite
his peculiar skin tone, is interesting enough to warrant being the main protagonist in a future novel.
For a most enjoyable and satisfying romance that is "out of this world", I heartily recommend INTO THE FIRE.

INTO THE FIRE is one heck of a thriller sci-fi story that never lets you go for a minute. I was totally captivated from page one until the end. Norma McPhee is a fabulous storyteller who has created some marvelous characters in a super duper plot that is quite intriguing, and spellbinding. In fact, I can't wait to see what she is going to come up with next! There's a bevy of compelling characters that will make excellent heroes and heroines for future books...Ms. McPhee has created a fantastic love story with enough sexual tension to cause some damage in space and then some. INTO THE FIRE is a perfect combination of thrilling adventure and romance rolled up in a magic space ship ride into the future with plenty of fire and ice...What a knockout of a book. Don't miss it! If you've been wondering whether to invest in an E-book, take the plunge now and I have a suspicion you will be hook thereafter. -- Suzanne Coleburn, The Belles and Beaux of Romance
