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....GoodReads

A Phoenix can die and then rise from the ashes to be reborn. A unique gift, the chance to start over.
People change, their desires and ambitions evolve. For Luke it was a horrible misunderstanding that caused him to become a Phoenix. But instead of seeing it as a curse he comes to realize it is a blessing that has made him happier than he had ever dreamed.
Phaedra is a fury, and for this story furies are untouched and alone. This sensual woman can't defend herself against this Phoenix that burns her soul.
Draven has brought to life two strong characters and given them depth in very few pages. A talented author to be able to do that. An enjoyable read, don't miss out on it!
