The Dark Kings have fought for centuries to preserve their dragon magic. But can one warrior resist the greatest temptation of all?
A DESIRE THIS POWERFUL
In his quest to destroy the Dark Fae—his nemesis—the Dragon King known as Kiril goes to Ireland as a spy. When a gorgeous, mysterious woman tries to seduce him, Kiril instantly sees through her glamour to the Dark Fae beneath. Shara isn’t just any Dark; she’s from one of the most powerful bloodlines—and despite the dangers, Kiril can’t stay away from her. He’s enthralled by her smile, enslaved by the undeniable passion…
IS A WAR WORTH FIGHTING FOR
Shara has one chance to make things right with her family—and to prove her worth. It seemed like such an easy mission…until she actually meets Kiril. His charm, his sexual magnetism is too much for her to ignore. Shara knows that falling into Kiril’s arms can bring her nothing but trouble. Yet she discovers an inner strength she didn’t know she had…and an attraction that knows no bounds. But is her desire for Kiril worth the risk of eternal doom for them both?
Kiril has been in Ireland for awhile now, keeping his ear to the ground listening for information that can help the Dragon Kings find a missing friend and any other plans the Dark Fae may have in store for them. Kiril knows he’s being watched and it’s no surprise when the Dark decide to appeal to his playboy side and send Shara in to gain any knowledge she can from him.
We all know this is a test for Shara. We also know the Dark will do unspeakable things, but it still pissed me off that they would whore Shara out like that. After her “imprisonment” she is at the point where she will do anything to get back in her family’s good graces, and if that means swallowing her pride and luring Kiril into a trap, then she will do it.
Kiril seemed to fall for Shara pretty quickly in this story, and put faith in her way too fast. She is still a Dark and the other Kings try to remind him of that. The whole plan her family created for her falls apart, and Shara’s confidence seems to grow with Kiril’s insistence. I really liked how much she grows in this book.
I love the dragons and their parts stole the show for me. I love when they all get pulled in together and have to battle the Dark. The battle is fast-paced and I sometimes had to go back to make sure I didn’t miss something. So many things were happening to the different characters and I just know I’m going to need those details in future installments. This book does not have happy endings for all, and I think the next few books are all set for some serious showdowns with the Dark. It’s going to be exciting!
