DRAKON’S KNIGHT (Blood of the Drakon, Book 7) by N.J. Walters

Publication Date: June 24, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

DC152ACA-4186-4F19-A784-DC8676E7C045Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple plan: Kill the leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his target, Karina Azarov, she can’t remember who she is. Worst of all––he can’t kill her. His dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.

Karina has no idea why these Drakon’s have taken her to their home. And she most certainly does not understand why she’s so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he’s strong, intelligent, and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he’s not going to hurt her. If only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these Drakon’s hate her so much.

But if her memory returns, mated or not, he may get his war.. And one of them will die.

Cori 4 Stars

I thoroughly enjoyed DRAKON’S KNIGHT. It’s the seventh book in N.J. Walters’ Blood of the Drakon Series. I recommend reading the books in order, but each book can be read as a stand-alone. When I picked up DRAKON’S KNIGHT I was unsure if I would like Karina because I didn’t like her in the previous books, but I found myself admiring her. Jericho and Karina story was full of passion, mystery and danger and I couldn’t put it down. N. J. Walters’ paranormal world of drakons (half dragons/ half men) and the evil knights that hunt them is a unique paranormal series that I highly recommend for paranormal romance lovers looking for a great dragon shifter series. I’m hooked!

DRAKON’S PAST (Blood of the Drakon, Book 4) by N.J. Walters

Publication Date: January 29, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

324F6D25-59A8-4598-BC1D-8207A2BF365DConstance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.

Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers. The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.

Cori 4.5 Stars

DRAKON’S PAST was an exciting ride that kept me glued to the pages and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s the fourth book in N.J. Walters paranormal series, Blood of the Drakon. DRAKON’S PAST is Nic, a fire dragon, and Constance, a antique dealer’s story. Danger, romance and sexy dragons make this series addicting! N. J. Walter’s paranormal world of drakons (half dragons/ half men) and the evil knights that hunt them, set in present day, is unique and exciting and she keeps me anticipating more. I highly recommend this series for paranormal romance fans looking for a great dragon shifter series.

Spotlight & Review: Darkest Flame (Dark Kings) by Donna Grant

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.

20140430-130157.jpg
Darkest Flame is the first book in Donna Grant’s new dragon paranormal romance series, Dark Kings. I devoured it! Donna Grant created a sexy and exciting world of dragons who protect humanity. It kept me on edge and flipping the pages from start to finish. I loved Kellan and Denae’s story! Denae is a strong female character who changes the way Kellan feels about humans. Their chemistry together was explosive! Their story was filled with action, suspense, emotion and sizzling romance. I highly recommend this new series and will be anxiously awaiting the next book. I think the Dark Kings Series will quickly become one of my favorite paranormal series.

Tee is Vegas’s favorite casino hostess, ready to grant her high rollers their every quirky wish. But when her own wish to financially help her Paiute Tribe finally comes true, she decides to double-down with lady luck and go for a hot hook-up with her sexy boss, Leo. Unfortunately, Tees about to find out why their romance is such a long shot—Leo is a shape-shifting dragon.

Leo needs a proper dragon mate to save his waning dragon form, and despite their magnetic sexual attraction, he knows Tee is anything but proper—or a dragon. But when threats arise from Tee’s tribe, Leos protective instincts kick in. Can he give up his dragon form for the woman he loves—even if it means shortening his life? Or has Tee finally had enough of having her heart dragged around?

A sexy dragon shifter romance where the hero looks like Thor? Yes, please! How could I not enjoy his story? This is the second book in Susannah Scott’s dragon shifter series and is set in a Vegas casino. The dragons can hide in plain site in the magic filled city. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters in Stop Dragon My Heart Around. Tee is a casino hostess that works for Leo who has been in love with Leo since she met him. While Leo wants Tee he doesn’t think she is his mate and she has to fight to get Leo to admit his feelings for her. Their chemistry together heated up the pages. I can’t wait for the next book in the series! I recommend this series for readers looking for a steamy dragon shifter romance that is a quick read. This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend starting with the first book to enjoy the entire series.

“I told you we’d see celebrities here!” Trixie exclaimed and squeezed the brunette woman’s bare arm.

“Celebrities?” Tee asked in confusion.

“It’s that hotty superhero with the hammer.” Angie pointed at Leo. Her mouth hung open to show a brass tongue piercing.

“Thor,” Trixie whispered and smacked her gum again. “I bet he has a big ole hammer too.”
Beside her, Leo smiled and shrugged, like he had some super hero secret he couldn’t share.

Ridiculous.

“This is not Thor,” Tee said with an uncomfortable laugh. Next to the diminutive young women, she felt gawky. She straightened her stooping shoulders and stretched to her full height. Then, she gave the two a smile she hoped conveyed patient helpfulness.

Leo was tall, even taller than her, with blondish hair that brushed his shirt collar. His eyes were deep set like the actor’s, and he definitely had the forearms and muscle packed in all the hunky places. But he was so much more than some hammer-throwing cartoon.

He was Leo. He was real, and she’d wanted him from the first moment he’d walked toward her across the Bellagio foyer. Then he’d smiled at her, and her heart had done a ridiculous loop-de-loop and she’d been lost.

***

“Just answer me one question and I’ll never bring this up again.”

“All right.” Leo looked relieved.

Tee stepped closer to him so the front of their bodies touched. Leo leaned against the elevator wall away from her, but not before she felt the evidence of his desire. “Do you want me?”

He dropped fisted hands from his pockets. “No.”

“You’re lying.” She leaned against him, feeling the heat of him down the front of her body. “Why would you lie about something that’s so easy to disprove?”

“You said one question.”

His denial fired through her doubt. She knew he wanted her. The heat of his body touched her bare legs, and an achy need tightened her spine, stretching her closer to his mouth.
“Then what I wear or don’t wear shouldn’t bother you at all.” She stepped close enough to feel the fabric of his suit on her bare legs. Feel the bulge of aroused man between his legs. She put one arm on either side of him, caging him. “My being this close to you shouldn’t bother you at all either.”

“It doesn’t.” He shoved his arms between them and raised his head so she saw the underside of his chin. He hadn’t shaved. The stubble of his beard poked through his skin, and she wanted to kiss it, to taste the slight saltiness.

She put her lips to the juncture of his jaw and ear.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won’t have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.

Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he’s helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons–but he’d be lying. It’s not his fault, though! He didn’t tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he’s ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs. . .

CORI’S REVIEW:
I love this series! The Dragon Kin series is a fun and sexy dragon shifter romance series. G.A. Aiken is one of my favorite authors because her books are always fun, entertaining and keep me laughing throughout the story. A Tale of Two Dragons is Addolgar the Cheerful and Braith of the Darkness story. It’s filled with action, danger, and smoking hot romance. It’s a novella and although I wish it were longer because I can never get enough of these books it felt like a completely romance story. I highly recommend this novella and this series for paranormal romance lovers looking for a hot romance with some laughs.

DONNA’S REVIEW:
Reading the story of Braith and Addolgar was fun, passionate and made me wish for more. G. A. Aiken once again portrayed a strong female and the male who earned her love through adventure and desire. This back story to my favorite dragons was a nice addition that reminded me of the fun and adventure of her previous books. The way the characters banter and carry on is true entertainment and I will be reading this one again. I only wish it were a full length novel as I just can’t get enough of them.
