Lauren has a stalker, but tries to keep out of the media spotlight.  In addition to her web design business, Lauren is a psychic healer.  Troy is visiting one of his partners in Phoenix and is asked to check out Lauren’s place to make sure she is safe. 

The fifth book in the Phoenix Agency series, Feel the Heat, is about the last partner in the Agency and is just as intense as the first four stories.  There is a lot of interaction with the partners and a couple of other people that keep showing up, helping with missions.

Troy and Lauren seem to have instant chemistry, but Lauren doesn’t trust easily due to the reaction of both her family, and the men she dates about her gift of healing.  She is surprised by Troy’s acceptance, but learns that the other partners have wives with their own gifts.  She feels accepted for once in her life.  I loved how the two of them interacted with each other.  I loved the scene with the bath after she did the healing for Carl.  The romantic gesture was fantastic. 

I did not like some of the secondary characters and could not believe how manipulative Kurt Olberman was.  I was surprised at one of the decisions regarding him made by Phoenix, but I understand why it was made. 

I hope that Ms. Holt will have a least two more stories about a couple of characters that help Phoenix when needed.  I recommend that the Phoenix Agency series be read in order, though the stories can be read alone.
