Today I’m going to grab just a snippet from Darkest Flame by Donna Grant. This is the first in the Dark Kings series and I just love the female character! This is a scene where the group is racing across Scotland to get to their safe house.

“How much farther?” she asked.
“I’m no’ sure. It’s been awhile since I was here.”
“What brought you to the isle?”
“I often stayed here between exploring Skye and the other isles.”
The SUV rocked rocked violently as it rolled over a large rock protruding from the road. Denae winced. “Sorry. Didn’t see that. I was too busy gawking at you.”
“You always say whatever is on your mind.”
“Not usually, but I’ve learned the only way I learn anything about you is to say what needs to be said.”
“That was a statement before, no’ a question.”
She shrugged and gave him a quick look with her whisky-colored eyes. “Does that bother you?”

I love that Denae doesn’t let Kellan intimidate her. She’s a good strong heroine who is perfect to tame that hero with a major attitude.

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.
