The Fever and the Fury (Mythica Series 6) by Stephanie Draven

Summary:
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.

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
This is the second of Ms. Stephanie Draven’s books I’ve read and it was a pleasant surprise. In this series we have Gods, Demi-Gods, Medusas, Sirens, Furys, Phenixs, and other mythical creatures. The Gods are egoistical creatures and they do whatever they want, without thinking about the consequences.

Phaedra, a fury, sent and linked by Athena to Luke, to torture him until she atones or drives him to madness. She knows only what the goddess told her, that he betrayed his country and he must pay for it. She kills him many times, but he is a phoenix, he cannot die.

Although they start off as enemies, being together day after day, they fall for each other and Phaedra realizes that Luke was a noble man and Athena sent her in an attempt to control him. Will Luke let her release him from the bond that them link together?

Luke fought for his country and his family only to find out that some superior officials committed treason; when he told his grandfather, a general, he was told to keep his mouth shut about what he knew. When he told the press about it, he was named a traitor to everyone he knew.

Phaedra always did what Athena told her, until she realizes that she is just a controlling, manipulative harridan and she chooses love over the goddess.

Wonderful story. I loved the transformation of the main characters. I will rate this book 4.5 stars.
