In Darkest Flame by Donna Grant, 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?
HER BEAUTY IS A WEAPON.
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…
HIS PASSION IS A CURSE…
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.
FINALLY!!! Oh my gosh, I had about given up on Kellan after the last part of this series, but thankfully he was finally able to redeem himself in my eyes! Don’t get me wrong, the back and forth with him was semi-interesting, but seriously man? You were giving me whiplash between not liking you, and loving you completely!
Ok now that I have that out of the way, to me personally it felt as though this part of the series went rather quickly. It could be perhaps because I was so excited with how it started out that I just couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen between Kellan and Denae.
During this part of the series, we do get to find out a little bit about Tristan, which was really great for me personally because he’s been the quiet one of the bunch. We don’t really know that much about him, but we were finally able to find out something!
There was a ton of action happening during parts of this story, which was amazingly well written in my opinion. It wasn’t too overdone, yet it wasn’t just slightly there either. Ms. Grant does a really great job with the balance between all aspects of the story to the point where you don’t feel overloaded with any one thing happening.
I do think it’s really interesting how Ms. Grant has added the parts about MI5 being taken over by the Dark Ones. Throughout this series so far it has been mentioned that they believe that has happened, but as we get further into the story, it just makes it so much more interesting. It definitely leaves you wondering for more.
I really can’t wait for the final part of this series!
