Review: Darkest Flame

by Donna Grant
Rating: 3/5

The Dark Kings have fought for centuries to preserve their dragon magic. But one of the most powerful warriors of his kind will be put to the ultimate test. Is he strong enough to resist his greatest temptations? Or will he be forced to surrender—body and soul?
Denae Lacroix is a beautiful MI5 agent on a deadly mission. Sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the mysterious Dreagan Industries, she discovers too late that she’s been set up—as human bait. She is an irresistible lure for a man who has not seen or touched a woman for centuries. He is a man with a destiny—and a desire—that could destroy them both...
It’s been twelve hundred years since Kellan has walked among humans—and there’s no denying the erotically charged attraction he feels for Denae. But as a Dragon King, he is sworn to protect his secrets. Yet the closer he gets to this smart, ravishing woman, the more her life is in danger. All it takes is one reckless kiss to unleash a flood of desire, the fury of dragons... and the fiercest enemy of all.

Darkest Flame is the fourth entry and the first full-length book in the Dragon Kings series. It’s also the number one in the series. Donna Grant is an author I’ve been reading since her first Dark Sword book. Unfortunately Darkest Flame wasn’t really a ‘wow’ book for me, so I’m going to try a review of an average book. [Any extra ranting is as a result of research I did for this review which made me very angry].

Review: It’s In His Kiss

by Jill Shalvis
Rating: 4/5


Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now’s her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam’s eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.

Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can’t resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca’s heart?

It’s In His Kiss is the tenth full-length book in the Lucky Harbor and the start of the fourth ‘trilogy’. Unlike the previous trilogies which focused on three different women and their lucky men this one will be focusing on three men and their lucky women. Specifically Sam, Cole and Tanner, the men of Lucky Harbor Charters.
