That one simple kiss slayed him as nothing in his very, very long life had ever done. It physically hurt him to release her and turn his back on everything she offered, but it was for the best.


The Rhys who has existed for centuries is gone. Stripped of his ability to shift forms, Rhys can no longer embody the majestic, powerful dragon he was at birth. Cut off from his heritage by one of his own, this Dragon King must remain a man, haunted by demons who torment his every waking moment. The darkness would swallow him whole . . . except a woman so beautiful and haunted becomes the one beam of light in his world...


Lily Ross is taking the first step in building a new life for herself. Still reeling from a relationship that nearly broke her spirit, Lily is wary of her attraction to brawny, brooding Rhys. The passion burning so brightly between them is a potent temptation, but any entanglement is destined to end in disaster. Yet when a spectre from Lily’s past threatens their growing bond, Rhys is forced to choose with his heart, or lose this woman who has become his one chance at salvation...

Night’s Blaze was everything I hoped for and more! I loved Rhys and Lily’s story.


I have been waiting for this book ever since fans were introduced to Lily. Lily is a new employee at the Dreagan Distillery. She is quiet and hides behind oversized clothes. Right away I knew she was running from a past so I was curious about her story. Despite her secrets and her attempt to go unnoticed she can’t help her attraction to Rhys. But it was heartbreaking to have her witness Rhys flaunts pass her with different women on his arms. But Rhys is also keeping secrets, not only about being a Dragon King but about his attraction to Lily. So the romantic in me had to see Lily and Rhys get together. In Night’s Blaze Lily and Rhys’ secrets are revealed and their love story is steamy and romantic. It is everything I love and come to expect from author Donna Grant.


Along with the romance I also loved the continuation of the subplot. The Dragon King’s enemy is finally revealed and I knew it!! I’m not going to spoil it but I love the twist that the author created for the series. The action and suspense was exciting. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Night’s Blaze is the 5th 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!
