Blurb: 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....

Review: From the very first words I was sucked in. Finished this one in a single sitting only hours after getting it. KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF!!!!

First let me tell you why I gave it an 8. While I really enjoyed the story, when I got to the end...well, it just didn't feel like the end. It was like there was another chapter or two left that I didn't ge to read.

HOWEVER, After reading the last two pages a second time I realized that this really was the end. Both characters had come to a solution that worked for them and they were willing to deal with. The journey to say the least kept my attention and left me breathless. I love love love stories like this one. Where the paranormal aspect is not vamp or were or demon or angel but that really should be utilized a bit more. A real work of art that I could totally see getting great marks and starting a series.

For Kenyon Minions like myself, the Greek throwback really made me happy but again....I WANT MORE :)
