His kiss was fire and passion. She shivered, wondering how he knew just how to touch her, to send her spiraling into an abyss of pleasure…
For centuries, the Dragon Kings have lived among mortals, forsaking their true selves. But for Kelton, hiding in the realm of shadows—and existing only in the world of dreams—is no longer an option. A human woman claims to know that he, like other dark warriors of his kind, is real. That the legends about these powerful, seductive men with hearts ablaze are true. And that, with just one embrace, Kelton could destroy her…or love her until the end of time.
Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist who knows better than to fall into the arms of a Dragon King. But how can she resist Kelton when he’s so willing to share his secrets and bear his soul? He hasn’t met a beautiful, trustworthy woman like Bernadette in…forever. But once they give into their mutual desire, their worlds will never be the same. Soon Bernadette must face her dilemma: Should she expose the truth about Kelton in the name of science? Or join him in his battle with the dark forces—in the name of love?

We’ve been building up to the war with Usaeil. Now with Con missing the Dragon Kings are doing what they can to prepare for that they must do. The Kings are running out of time to give up Rhi. I was so tense for this showdown!
Despite all that is going on with the upcoming war, the Kings still must do what they can to hide their existence from humans. Keltan is the King sent to investigate a human that is holding a lecture trying to prove that dragons are real. Bernadette has spent the last year of her life totally devoted to outing the dragons. It’s not until she is confronted with Keltan and the truth is revealed do the duo start working together for their part of the war.
Keltan did not want a mate, so he resists, but he can’t deny his feelings for Bernadette. The upcoming war is going to test his feelings. I’m not too sure how I feel about where we leave this couple. It is not the HEA I would anticipate, but it creates questions on what could come next. It makes me question all the couples. The Others have been making plans for centuries. All that has been happening could be plans from the Others coming to fruition.
Fever had great action and I loved seeing how the war played out with the different factions. I am left dying to know of the fates of our favorite characters. This part of the war may be over but there is still so much more for the Dragon Kings to face. The combination of the war action and the love connection between Keltan and Bernadette was a great mix. The balance kept me reading and the surprises drew many moments of shock. I loved Fever and am dying for the answers to all the questions that have been raised!
