Celebrating A New Release In Desiree Holt's Phoenix Agency Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Desiree Holt's brand new release in her bestselling Phoenix Agency Series with Ellora's Cave!

FEEL THE HEAT by Desiree Holt

Phoenix Agency Series: Book Five

Lauren Cahill lives as quietly as she can, protecting her ability as a psychic healer. But danger brings Troy Arsenault into her life—along with scorching sex and intense emotions.

Resisting him isn’t even a question, in or out of the bedroom. He protects her from the evil stalking her even as he teaches her what erotic sex is all about.

When she’s kidnapped, his world is turned upside down and he employs all the resources of The Phoenix Agency to rescue her. He won’t rest until she’s back safely in his life—and in his bed for the rest of their lives.


Desiree Holt has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!). She spent several years in the music business representing every kind of artist from country singers to heavy metal rock bands. For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her.

She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses. Romance Junkies said of her work: "Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last."

    Super congrats on the release of FEEL THE HEAT! For those who aren't familiar with your Phoenix Agency Series, can you tell us more about in and how the books connect?

    I love your romantic suspense and when you throw in your signature steam - well, pretty magical! Speaking of magic, can you tell us about the paranormal elements in this series? I don't think the blurb hints enough at that.

    I hope you enjoy your launch party today and here's to FEEL THE HEAT being your biggest seller yet!!! Have fun sweetie and happy belated birthday!

  3. Love this series from you! I'm not usually a fan of paranormal, but I was hooked from the beginning with this series!

  4. Wow! Thank you, LM. I think you'll really like the twist in this story, too.

    1. Your so welcome! Thanks for so many great reads!


  5. If you are having trouble finding the book on Amazon: Amazon is slow getting it up but here's a solution.Order from (cheaper there, too) in prc format order from us, get it in PRC format and send to amazon to your kindlefree email address so that amazon converts and sends back converted.

  6. All your books are so exciting. How do you keep your ideas fresh and the writing sizzling?

  7. My head just seems to be full of stories, Melissa. And they all are different. I think it comes from a natural curiosity about people and how they react in different situations. Also I create my characters first and the story evolves from them. That's a big part of keeping the stories new and different. And thank yo. I am so glad it works!

  8. Update: Book now is live at Amazon. Yay!

  9. Congrats on the new release.

    I have not started this series yet. How would you describe the whole series in 1 or 2 sentences?
