I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
That one simple kiss slayed him as nothing in his very, very long life had ever done. It physically hurt him to release her and turn his back on everything she offered, but it was for the best.
A KING WHO WALKS IN DARKNESS
The Rhys who has existed for centuries is gone. Stripped of his ability to shift forms, Rhys can no longer embody the majestic, powerful dragon he was at birth. Cut off from his heritage by one of his own, this Dragon King must remain a man, haunted by demons who torment his every waking moment. The darkness would swallow him whole . . . except a woman so beautiful and haunted becomes the one beam of light in his world...
A DESIRE THAT WILL NOT BE DENIED
Lily Ross is taking the first step in building a new life for herself. Still reeling from a relationship that nearly broke her spirit, Lily is wary of her attraction to brawny, brooding Rhys. The passion burning so brightly between them is a potent temptation, but any entanglement is destined to end in disaster. Yet when a spectre from Lily’s past threatens their growing bond, Rhys is forced to choose with his heart, or lose this woman who has become his one chance at salvation...
Night’s Blaze was a book I’d been waiting for. Rhys’s character has built up through the first four books and we’ve seen how events have completely altered his life. I loved the carefree, fun character that he started out as and I’ve been totally devastated by what has happened to him. I was completely ready for his book.
We all knew Lily was hiding something. It was pretty obvious by the way she dressed and her withdrawn attitude. Seeing her blossom with the help of the other mates just made you smile. They gave her the confidence she needed to push the stuff she’s been hiding from and start a new life. Not to let her past totally ruin the rest of her life. Problem is, it didn’t take too long for all that stuff to come running back into her life.
That confidence Lily gained was what Rhys needed to bring himself out of his funk and gave him a light amongst his problems. Unfortunately, they still had their secrets that they kept from each other. The secrets actually connected them more than they knew and they would have to work together.
I was so wound up with the action and the revelations that happened near the end. Shocking events and puzzling actions left me shaking my head wondering “what the hell just happened?!” It was definitely an emotional read. This was my favorite Dark Kings book so far! I can’t wait for the next one!
