Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a thousand-year-old secret. But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absent-minded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire...
When Dr. Faith Reynold stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears it comes from a dragon, she’s completely taken aback. A woman of science, there’s no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith’s curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She’s never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within, in Firestorm, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

Faith has lived a lonely life and since her mom passed digging up history and fossils has become her life. For once she is excited about something that she discovered on Fair Isle …a dragon remains, but not everyone is happy about it.

On a faraway place called Dreagon where the Dragons kings live Con the King of the Dragon kings is worried because all dragons live or dead were to be removed from there so that the mortals would forget they existed. Con has decided that Dmitri will go as it was his home so it must be one of his dragons. What he doesn’t expect when he gets there is to be struck by his attraction to Faith and hers to him.

Faith doesn’t really date because it would just lead to heartache but something about this man has her twisted up in knots. When Dmitri decides instead of just destroying the dragon he will let Faith dig around a bit until mortals start to die at the hands of the Dark, a group of Fae that love you till your heart dies. When one of them pushes Faith to her death Dmitri is forced to show his Dragon form just to save her and risks discovery. When Faith realizes what he is it doesn’t change her opinion of him at all in fact the scientist in her wants to know more about the man and the dragon. When they decide to go back to Dreagon together and start to move the bones Dmitri gets a weird feeling that he can’t seem to shake and when they get to his home even weirder things begin to happen.

The book left me in a cliffhanger and I am not sure if more are coming or not but there is a lot more story to tell, and I am hoping Faith and Dmitri get a happily ever after. – Reviewed by Linda


Firestorm is the tenth installment of the Dark King series by Donna Grant.

Faith Reynolds is an archaeologist who has come across a dragon skeleton. For her this is a magnificent find. She would have shown her mother, who has always loved anything related to dragons, but isn’t able to now that she has passed away. Taking the find as a sign, she get’s protective of the skeleton.
Dimitri is not only immortal, but fierce Dragon. Many years ago, they all swore to keep their clan a secret from the humans. So, when he’s ordered to destroy evidence of the dragon skeleton he doesn’t hesitate, but when he finds the skeleton in the hands of a human, destroying the evidence is the last thing on his mind.

Donna Grant has created a magnificent world that will literally sweeps you away. With so many books, you’d think the story would get tiring, but it’s the opposite. Each book is like reaching a new level in a video game. Exciting, thrilling and incredibly stunning as you watch it all unfold.
In additional, the complexity of the storyline is so well crafted that it doesn’t take away from getting to know the characters

I can’t wait to see what else she has in store!

Highly recommend for those who enjoy fantasy and romance storyline. Even though this is part of a series, I didn’t feel like you need to read them in chronicle order.  – Reviewed by Julianne

When Marine Force Recon captain Cullen Loughman learns that his father’s been kidnapped, he will do whatever it takes to find him. In order to achieve his mission, Cullen will need to team up with the best of the best—someone who just happens to be the most stunning woman he’s ever laid eyes on…
This isn’t the first rodeo for ex—Air Force pilot Mia Carter. Still, Cullen’s bad-boy good looks and charm are distracting her from duty. . .and it appears that the feeling is mutual. As Mia and Cullen make their descent into a dark, dangerous world, their attraction reaches the boiling point. But is their desire worth the risk when a ruthless enemy is waiting in the wings—or will their Lone Star love conquer all?

This is book 2 in the Sons of Texas series and as in book 1, this one at the end leaves you with more questions than answers!

Mia is one bad a$$ woman in this book! She was in the Air Force, she’s a pilot and packed with weapons and the know how to use them! She’s now on her own and chooses what missions she takes and because she’s such an adrenaline junkie she picks the most dangerous people to transport cargo for. Her transportation of cargo almost cost her her life once and luckily she was rescued. Her latest mission has her in a dangerous position, when suddenly she has help. Cullen enters the picture and he’s just as bad a$$ as she is!

Cullen and Mia team up to find Orrin, Cullen’s father, whom they think was taken by the Russians because of a bioweapon. And that situation puts Mia and Cullen in a dangerous predicament and they have to always be on there toes, because they are being hunted! However, what happens when they develop feelings for each other, that neither thought they were capable of? Will that hinder their search for Cullen’s father or will it make their mission successful?

Oh my this was a great book!! LOVED the story and the characters! There was danger around every corner and the sexual chemistry between Cullen and Mia was fireworks worthy! While reading this book I felt as though I was at the theater watching an intense movie…afraid to breathe or blink, on the edge of my seat while mindlessly eating popcorn one kernel at a time and not even realizing I was eating. Yes, it was that good!! Looking so forward to book 3!! – Reviewed by Judy

Owen Loughman is a highly-decorated Navy SEAL who has a thirst for action. But there’s one thing he hasn’t been able to forget – his high school sweetheart, Natalie. After over a decade away, Owen is returned home to the ranch in Texas for a dangerous new mission that puts him face-to-face with Natalie and an outside menace that threatens everything he holds dear. He’ll risk it all to keep Natalie safe – and win her heart. . . .
Natalie Dixon has had a lifetime of heartache since Owen was deployed. Fourteen years and one bad marriage later, she finds herself mixed up with the Loughman’s again. With her life on the line against an enemy she can’t fight alone, it’s Owen’s strong shoulders, smoldering eyes, and sensuous smile that she turns to. When danger closes in, she holds close to the only man she’s ever loved…



If you want a story with edge of your seat danger and some romance this series is it. Natalie had been in love with Owen fourteen years ago but he chose the military over her and broke her heart and as much as she tried to get over it when his father Orris asks her to meet him she goes. Orris was asking if she ever heard of Ragnrok and if she did to call the number on the back of a card. Working at the Russian embassy she saw a file on Ragnrok and called the number to talk to Callie who Orris had taken in and now works for him. Each one of the Loughman sons were deposited home to find out their aunt and uncle had been brutally murdered and now their father Orris was missing presumably taken by the Russians. Owen Wyatt and Cullen have held their mother’s death against their father for years but they don’t want to see him hurt or killed. When Owen finds out Natalie is helping with all of this he is over joyed to see her but when he finds out the Russian have put a hit out on her he is livid. This story has a lot of nail biting scenes in it but Natalie and Owen discovering each other again is romantic. This story leaves you wondering what happens next but it does explain a lot about Natalie and Owen. – Reviewed by Linda Rea
