WOW! I'm so glad I found this one!

I decided to get this during a sale, but it was the hypnotizing voice of Jim Frangione that was the real pull. When I first heard his reading of the JR. Wards "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" I was a little disappointed. However, the more you listen to him the more addicted you become. Now I can't imagine not loving anything he read, even the newspaper! This novel is amazing on it's own, Lori does not disappoint. These men are true men, the kind that will do anything to save a lady or kill the bad guy. They are full of attitude yet kind and gentle all at the same time. My husband listened to a little and just laughed, he said,"guys don't really talk like that." I just smiled back and said,"well, maybe if they did they could get the rewards like these men do!" He listened for more tips after that. :)

What a thrill to have Jim Frangione narrating!

He makes a good story absolutely great. His narrating is sexy and masculine and just perfect for these types of stories. What a surprise to find him reading this new series... instead of one of the boring women that have read Lori Fosters other books. Please keep them coming..... I cant get enough of his wonderful style. Discovered him from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Heroine was awful!

What disappointed you about Trace of Fever?

I loved the hero but the heroine was so bad! I think the author wanted her to be tough but she just turned out hateful and bi-polar. One minute she's mad and hateful and then the next she's jumping the guy! I rolled my eyes way too many times.

Love this series!!

I read the first book, When you Dare. It was the first I had heard of Lori Foster, now I listen to everything she writes, but especially like the "Men who walk the edge of honor" series.

Totally Consuming Heat and need

Any additional comments?

Wow soooo good. Trace is all Hot intense male. Jim Frangione narration surrounds and consumes you. Lori Foster has once again grabbed my attention, hauled me into the story and didn't let me go till the very end. I feel totally satisfied in every way. Not one to let a good thing go i have purchased the next book in the series and i'm sure it will be as captivating as the last 2. What an excellent ride. :)

Surprisingly dated main characters

I first thought this book must have been written 20-30 years ago when women wanted to read about big hulking male heroes who tell them what to do, showing there immense protective/arrogant/dominant side.

The story was just over the top absurd with stereotyped bad guys galore. The heroine was such an odd contradiction that she was not believable. I appreciate the fact that the author took on a rough topic but finding it hard swallow at the same time.

Did I Listen To The Same Book!!

I must have missed something in the book because I thought the book was so boring.

It's never good when you get to the end of a book and think "Thank God that's over!" It took me a long time to slog through it. I have enjoyed Ms. Foster's contemporaries but I personally do not at all like her attempts at romantic suspense.

This was a revenge story. The heroine was out for revenge on the bad guy for something that did not really need revenge. She was going to kill the man who had kidnapped, raped and shared her mother. I realize that's a bad thing but...Her mother had kept her off the grid her whole life to keep her away from the bad man. (A man who didn't remember or care anything about the woman or what happened to her.) So the first thing you do after that upbringing is go straight to the bad guy to kill him? "I had a sucky upbringing so I'm going to go kill some man who may or may not be my father?" Is it that easy for a normal person to decide to go and murder someone? Didn't buy it at all. Maybe if the mother had pounded into the daughter that "it is your destiny to revenge me!" But the mother had been trying to protect her for the whole of her life. I wonder why the mother even admitted who the bad guy was in that case. She had no training and only a lame ass plan involving some strange cartoon weapons.

The hero was some sort of mercenary who was undercover to bring down the bad guy's white slavery operation. His sister had been kidnapped in an earlier book so at least he had a valid reason to be working against this. And he had training. But... he was the most trusted henchman of the bad guy after being there 3 weeks? Yeah...nope.

The whole thing took place in about 3 days and the heroine managed to be too stupid to live throughout most of it. And the hero just kept admiring her gumption every time she did exactly the opposite of what he asked her to do to keep her safe.

The characterisation was weak. The only part I really enjoyed was when one of the other good guy operatives had to rescue the heroine while she was naked in the shower

The only good part of the book was the narrator Jim Frangione he was great with the delivery of the story.

A gripping story with Trace, first appears in When You Dare, and Priscilla (Pris). They are both attempting to bring down a human trafficker, tho for unrelated reasons. As they each have their own agenda and are not sharing it leads to some touchy situations. Ms Foster does a great job with the characters and their motivations. The subject matter is one of continuing concern and really can't be brought to light enough.

Heroine TSTL

Really the majority of the book was great - suspense, action, tension, and some chemistry. But when Pris shows up back at Murray’s and then freaking taunts Trace about it like a spoiled little brat I honestly wanted Trace to say “I’m done” and let her get her ass whooped. I understand that ultimately the characters have to get into conflict but this was just lazy and stupid.

Trace of Fever

Normally I whip right through books and am hankering for more. Not so with this book. I liked the first of the series not sure why this one didn't receive the same results. The narrator was great but the story left something to be desired.
