Wounded, with a target still on his back, Kieren Moonring has been hiding in the last place his Morgon enemies might find him. In the human convent on the southern shores of Primus, his body heals quickly, but his soul is broken.
While Sister Liana tends to the recovering Morgon man hiding in their convent, she can't stop or disguise her growing attraction. What disturbs her more is that he begins to uncover her past that is best kept buried.
Kieren fears his old enemies will find him, and then Liana. When his greatest fear comes true and she becomes their next mark...bloody hell, if he won’t murder the whole world to keep her safe.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
If you want sexy-sweet, chemistry-laden, all-out action-filled fantasy romance, Ms. Cross is the way to go. In Dragon Fire, Kieren Moonring finally falls head over wings, and to none other than a lovely sister in the convent where he’s been recovering from the last fight.
I’ve freaking loved Kieren, especially when he went all out to protect his brother’s mate. Now he has his own mate to protect, but things are not so simple. It’s not only that he’s now a wanted man and could be facing blade justice, but he just can’t claim sweet Liana. He was fierce, protective and had a lovely possessive streak a mile wide. He could also kick some serious ass: Morgon male perfection, people.
I loved how Liana was more than what met the eyes. She was one tough cookie and wasn’t afraid to give her all when it was necessary. I absolutely adored watching her melt Kieren’s walls.
I really liked how we get some downtime at the beginning of the story to really connect to Kieren and Liana and witness them realize their feelings for each other. And once the action starts full force, it was impossible to put down.
I must confess that the lack of open communication between a couple drives me crazy, and there was a bit of this with Liana not wanting to reveal her past as well as Kieren withholding Morgon-stuff from Liana. It came to the point where I wanted to sit them both in front of me and bitch slap the truth out of them. Fortunately, they realized they were in impending danger and opened up… eventually.
Action packed, sexy and suspenseful, Dragon Fire is an excellent addition to this most fabulous series. I strongly advise reading these books from the very start (as in the Nightwing novellas) for maximum character and story arc enjoyment. Now, there’s a certain baby dragon in the loose that I’m really curious about, so please Ms. Cross, get cracking on the writing
