Smoke-and-Fire-171x279She wanted to touch him. There had always been something about being in his arms that made her feel as if she could tackle anything and the world wouldn’t dare get in her way…

Ryder and Kinsey! They couldn’t be more perfect for each other! Both are computer geniuses. Their chemistry is off the charts. Angst and unrequited love galore! Secrets, lies, and more mysteries. I think at one point I wanted to smack my jelly donut eating Ryder! Lol! I felt a roller coaster of emotions with this one. I wanted too just scream at them both and say quit being so stubborn and admit that you love each other! I have so many theories running through my head and even still have no idea what the future is going to hold with the Dragon Kings.
Kinsey fell madly in love years ago but Ryder shattered her heart and left her without a word. Then one night in Edinburgh years later all hell breaks loose and the streets are littered with death. Kinsey comes face to face with the man she thought she knew and is terrified yet feels betrayed. Nothing in the world is as it seems. So she did what any sane women would do. She ran from him. Even after all those years apart as soon as she sees him, all the sparks and emotions she has denied and pushed deep for so long come rushing back full force. Her hurt from his rejection and fear of the unknown have left thick bitter walls around her heart. Ryder will have to work hard to earn her trust and start trying to fix the hurt he caused her. While being at Dreagan, Kinsey realizes that it could have been possible for them to have the future that they had always talked about together, and it was his choice not to tell her the truth about himself. He could have come back for her, but he didn’t.

Years ago before any of the Dragon Kings had even known it was possible to find their mate, Ryder met his Kinsey. He longed to have a future with her but as enemies tried to expose them as dragons, he left behind the only women that he had ever loved and it tore him to pieces. He left her to keep her safe, but little did he know it didn’t matter his enemies where closer than he realized. When he is given hope of having a second chance with her his greatest fear of all happens … she runs from him.

The Dragon Kings are in the middle of a war with the Fae and trust doesn’t come easy. Humans are already watching their every move at Dreagan and Kinsey’s arrival is very suspicious. Another betrayal could very well be the end to the Kings. Far more is going on than any of them realize. Rhi is finally finding her some much deserved happiness but it may just bring her more trouble and more pain in the end. Their enemies are close and seem to always be one step ahead. Ryder will have to let go of his fear and learn to trust Kinsey, even though the evidence looks damning. Torn from his loyalty to his fellow Kings and the love he once let go, he may realize too late her innocence and lose his chance at love with her forever.

Dark Blood by Christine Feehan ~ ARC Review & Giveaway!

Dark-Blood1

The fates of a warrior reborn and a seductive Dragonseeker are irrevocably entwined in the new Carpathian novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan,”the queen of paranormal romance” (J. R. Ward).

At long last you are truly back with us…

Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors — and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan…

Mother Earth called the ancients to witness your rebirth…

For this half-mage, half-Carpathian temptress, the ritual of awakening Zev to the council of warriors was the only way to save him. Locked away for his own protection, the time has now come for his rebirth, for his blood to stir with that of the ancient warriors before him. He has been assured by Branislava that their fates are entwined, that their spirits are woven together for eternity and that his new purpose in life is beyond imagining.

Now, with a blood-sworn vow of honor, mercy and endurance, and under the influence of a siren as bewitching as Branislava, Zev begins to wonder what his purpose is, what it means for the future of the Carpathians and what it is about his rebirth that he has to fear…

Dark Blood is a delightful addition to the spellbinding and evocative Dark Series. No one writes paranormal romance like Christine Feehan. She is truly an amazing author and just keeps coming up with terrific story lines. I just could not put this book down. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will not want it to end. I was entranced from start to finish. I have always found it so easy to get lost in her books because she pays such close attention to detail it feels like I am right there beside her characters. I would recommend this series all day long!

The alliance between the Carpathians and the Lycans is fragile. If they can not come to an agreement war is emanate. As old enemies surfaces, they are all in for the fight of their lives against an enemy that is beyond evil.

Zev has sworn an oath to protect his people the Lycans. Always alone and always fighting for his kind. Until he lays eyes on Branislava of the Dragonseekers. For the first time he longs for more. Branislava and her sister Tatijana spent most of their lives tortured and trapped in ice in the form of dragons in their father the High Mage Xavier’s ice cave. After being rescued years earlier she never expected to find her lifemate. She longed to be free for centuries but all that changes when she meets Zev Hunter. He awakens dreams and desires in her she thought she would never have. Together they both find a fiery passion and love that will last a life time if only they can survive the coming storm headed their way.
Zev is an elite hunter and has always respected his leaders, followed their orders and never doubted the judgements met out until now. He is torn between loyalty to his kind but knowing that they are wrong and are resistance to change. Zev was on the brink of death when Bronnie tied her soul to his and he is now a Carpathian-Lycan mix blood. He is a Guardian not the evil and deadly Sange rau as the Lycans want to believe. As things from the past collide with the future they all must come together for the battle of a lifetime. Zev finds out that there is more to his past than he could ever begin to imagine. Bronnie and Tatijana will face their darkest fears and the greatest evil there will ever be.

A DESIRE THIS POWERFUL

In his quest to destroy the Dark Fae—his nemesis—the Dragon King known as Kiril goes to Ireland as a spy. When a gorgeous, mysterious woman tries to seduce him, Kiril instantly sees through her glamour to the Dark Fae beneath.

No one writes evocative and spellbinding Paranormal Romance like Donna Grant. Every book in this series brings you something new and is refreshingly different. A heart stopping and thrilling romance that will leave you on the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more! I can’t get enough of the Dragon Kings!
They are sexy,charming,alluring,wonderful,perfect…. I could go on for a while lol.
I was so engrossed in this book it was like I was right there on their journey with them. Full of action and all kinds of hotness!
Amazing doesn’t even do this book justice.
The Dragon Kings have been around since the beginning of time. They fought a brutal war against the Fae and the Kings won. The Kings have sworn an oath to protect mankind and even chose to protect them when they were killing their own dragons. They were forced to send their dragons to another realm and have little hope of ever seeing them again. For many millennia they thought the Dark Fae was under control but little did they know they have infiltrated the humans and seek to destroy and rule over all.
Kiril was sent to Ireland as a spy to find out what the Dark were planning and search for his friend a Light Fae that was taken by the Dark. With war on the horizon all bets are off.
Shara was born to be bad …. Literally as a Dark Fae she never quite measured up in her evil families eyes. They kept her locked up for centuries because she showed compassion and that is not tolerated in the Dark Fae world. She finally has a chance to redeem herself. All she has to do is seduce and help capture a Dragon King. That should be easy enough except she finds herself being seduced instead.
Kiril makes her long for things that she thought she could never have. How will he ever trust her. Her red eyes alone mark her as evil. Can two people who are supposed to be enemies find a love that will transcend everything. As they battle for their lives at every turn, Shara will have to find the strength to stand against her own kind and risk everything to prove she can be redeemed.
5 STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND!

donna_grant_new

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than forty NOVELS and novellas spanning multiple genres of romance.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the FAMILY taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant STORIES running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold NOVELS and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as Druids Glen, The Shields, Royal Chronicles, Sisters of Magic, Dark Sword, Dark Warriors, and her new series, Dark Kings.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, four cats, three fish, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who loves to read and travel as much as she does.
