The Dark Kings soldier on in their fight to preserve their dragon magic. But eternal doom is always close behind…
SWORN TO PROTECT
His name is Laith. To most, he’s known as the owner of a local pub near Dreagan. But little do his patrons know that beneath his handsome, charming exterior Laith has the heart and soul of a Dragon King—one who wields control by keeping his friends close and his enemies, just across the border, closer. Until a mysterious stranger enters the picture, and sets his whole world off course…
DRIVEN TO DESIRE
Iona is a woman with a mission: To learn the truth about her dead father. She’s returned to Scotland only to learn that she’s part of an ancient pact with Dreagan—one that will threaten the fragile peace with the Dragon Kings. Gorgeous, sly Iona isn’t like anyone Laith has ever met before . . . and she harbors a secret that others would kill to possess. Will she complete him—or destroy him? Passion always comes with a price…
Hot Blooded is another romantic story about a Dragon King finding his mate. This time it is Laith, the owner of a local pub who is drawn to human Iona Campbell. Iona returns to Scotland to learn the truth about her dead father. There is instant attraction once they meet and author Donna Grant writes a passionate and steamy romance. It’s just as hot as I expected.
But what I really enjoyed most about this book is the action. Hot Blooded continues the subplot in which the Dragon Kings are facing an unknown enemy. We get to see more of this mysterious character and witness his plots against the Dragon Kings. But his identity is still a mystery. This is driving me crazy but it is also pulling me in more into the series.
Hot Blooded is the 4th book of the Dark Kings series and it can be read as a standalone. But I suggest you read all the books (including the novellas) in order to get a full understanding of the story. Plus you will fall in love the sexy dragon shifting Highlanders finding their soul mates! This is one of my favorite series and I highly suggest it to all paranormal fans!
