What a great book! This is one of the best romances I've read in a long time because it delivers all the things I'm looking for in an escapist read. A likeable heroine, humour, red-hot sex, strong emotion and evocative writing. Well done, Ms Ashley! Now go write us some more!

I was so excited when I heard about this book and was surprised when I found out it was going to be released electronically first, with a print version to come later. I was also lucky enough to win a copy from Ms.Ashley. Thank you once again!

I love the premise of this story; two people who are fighting an attraction for each other, even as they know there are roadblocks in their paths. Keira is your girl-next-door, grounded, strong woman. She knows she's attracted to Tom, but his hot-and-cold ro

I am a Phillipa Ashley fan after reading a couple of her contemporary romance novels.

This is a little different from her other novels with a more adult theme.

Fevercure begins with a meeting at a wedding between the two main characters Keira and "Mr Scarily Handsome" otherwise known as Dr Tom. The ice is broken when Keira drops something from her handbag outside the church, her knickers to be precise.

I was drawn in from the off. In olden days a lady would drop her handkerchief to get attention fr

Another great read from my author friend, Phillipa Ashley!
Tom Carew is a hot-doc hero to die for and Keira the heroine is warm, funny and likeable. The attraction between Tom and Keira jumps off the page from the opening paragraphs and the pace never lets up. Highly recommended for anyone who likes sparkling contemporary romance with plenty of passion and humour.

Gorgeous cover. This was an unexpectedly delightful read. Warm and sexy, with two troubled but engaging people who deserve happiness. Tom was a gorgeous mixture of alpha male and caring doctor, a mixture that brought to mind Daniel Craig. Warm and sexy and mysterious. Give this a shot, I'm glad I did and read it in one sitting. 4 stars

Such a great read - witty, warm and sexy, with Phillipa Ashley's trademark capability to ensure the reader's engagement with her characters. Delicious escapism with emotional depth.

Keira has a cute meet with a man at her friend's wedding and when I say "cute", I mean horribly embarrassing. She fumbles her purse out and panties drop to the ground in front of this nice looking man, so as any gentleman would do, he returns them to her -- with an all knowing smirk. Tom, the gentleman in question, is HOT and almost perfect. He is a doctor and the son of an earl, but he is only in town for the wedding and then he is going back to be a rural physician in the Papua islands. Keira ...more

This engaging tale of two caring professionals with troubled pasts really grabbed me. Both had good individual reasons for not wanting a relationship, and so a temporary arrangement with an already looming deadline of an overseas posting appealed to them both. Of course, this being a category romance, that was never really going to be satisfactory for either of them whatever they might have claimed.

There was also an engaging supporting cast, including Tom's brother and his partner, Keira's best

This is the second book I have read by Phillipa Ashley. She writes the hero characters so well, they are just want you're looking for when you read a book like this.

Fever Cure is definitely a page-turner and I finished it in a few days which is extremely quick reading for me. It's packed full of tension, passion and fantastic secondary characters like the school children and hero's brother.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a book that isn't too overly-complicated but grips

This book had a lot of potential at the beginning. The author establishes a connection between Keira and Tom quickly. However, for most of the novel I felt that it was lust and not love that was attracting them to each other. I didn't really get a true sense of why they actually loved each other until about a hundred pages in. Also, I didn't feel the characters were well fleshed out, which I'm sure lead to me wondering why they were in love with each other. I managed to finish it but it took a w ...more

I'm a total Phillipa Ashley fan and will pretty much read anything she has written. I love her character development & escapist storylines. This one was a little racy, but since I'm not exactly a prude, I didn't mind. The ending was a bit predictable, with a few twists and turns to change it up slightly, but you honestly don't want it to end any differently than it does.

Honestly, Phillipa Ashley is one of my new faves for reading for enjoyment. She is a great writer and one that I will cont

A fabulous read with a gorgeous hero and a most relateable heroine.
Tom had my heart racing right from the off and I really did not want him to dare going back to PNG. He was a hero with really strong power. And Keira's his perfect heroine. The banter was sassy and the power between them mesmerising.A thoroughly enjoyable, rollercoaster of a read. Top marks. Will read again.

I don't know what to think about this one, honestly. It had all the makings for a solid contemporary. And I was excited that it was set in London. And yet, I feel like I barely connected with the characters or the story. Actually, it felt like there wasn't much to connect with, since the writing lacked depth. The verdict is meh

The height of British chick lit/ romance, Philipa serves up a delicious tale. Predictable yet fabulous escape for my overworked overtired self. I need to keep a supply of her novels in my e reader for when I crave a 'feel good' pick me up.

Bridget Jones gave me the Brit chick lit bug...and it led me to Phillips Ashley. I enjoyed this book, it wad a quick, juicy and fun read. Ashley writes the best romantic male leads. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!

Loved these two characters. At times the story and scenes felt a little disjointed, but I loved the premise, the banter and the chemistry.
