He consumed her with that kiss, leaving no question that whatever was happening between them was meant to be—that it had always been meant to be…
HE LOVES FOR ETERNITY
Thorn is the bad boy of the Dragon Kings, a gorgeous, reckless warrior whose passions run wild and fury knows no bounds. When he sees the brave, beautiful Lexi being lured into the Dark Fae’s trap, he has no choice but to rescue her from a fate worse than death. But by saving this tempting mortal, he exposes himself to his fiercest enemy—and darkest desires. As the war between Dragons and Fae heats up, so does the passion between Lexi and Thorn. And when love is a battlefield, the heart takes no prisoners…
SHE LIVES FOR VENGEANCE
Lexi is on a mission of justice. Every day, she searches for the monster who murdered her friend. Every night, she hides in the shadows and plots her revenge. But the man she seeks is more dangerous than she ever imagined. He is one of the Dark Fae who preys on human life, who uses his unearthly power to seduce the innocent, and who is setting a trap just for her. Nothing can save Lexi from a creature like this—except the one man who’s been watching her every move…
Passion Ignites is book 7 of the Dark Kings series. This is another sexy and passionate romance and I love this series!
Passion Ignites is not a standalone so the books need to be read in order. In each book a Dragon King discovers his mate and their love affair isn’t an instant happily ever after. In Passion Ignites readers get to know Thorn the Dragon King of the Claret dragons. He is a fierce and loyal warrior but because of his painful past he keeps his distance from any chance of falling in love. That is until he sees Lexi, an American tourist seeking revenge for her murdered friend. Lexi has been hunting the streets of Edinburg looking for the red eyed murderer not knowing the danger that awaits her. But Thorn was there to save her and the moment they meet there is a strong attraction and connection. As in all her books author Donna Grant creates a love story of soulmates. I always know that the romance is going to be hot and Passion Ignites did not disappoint. I really loved Lexi because she was a strong and smart female character. When in trouble she was able to defend herself and not rely completely on Thorn to rescue her. Along with the romance is the continuation of the Dragon Kings preparing for war. The action increased in this book and more insight of their enemies was revealed. Rhi was present and I love this character. And the Reapers are introduced which leads in to the authors new series.
As much as I love this book and the series I do hope the future books focus more on the war. I love the romance but a Dragon King finding a mate and him having to explain their past has been too repetitive. Despite this I still can’t wait to read the next books.
I highly recommend this book and series to fans of paranormal romance with intense action.
Audiobook Review (DNF)
This was my first time listening to narrator Anthony Ferguson and I thought he does a great job narrating and as the voice of the male characters. But I did not like his performance for Lexi. Lexi is from South Carolina so the narrator tried to use a southern accent which I had a hard time listening too. I wish they would have hired a female narrator for all the female characters. It would have been a believable and a more enjoyable performance. I stopped listening to the audiobook and read the book (luckily I borrowed the audiobook from my library and didn’t waste money on this).
