Burning Desire by Donna Grant ~ Review

The Dark Kings have fought for centuries to preserve their dragon magic. But can one warrior resist the greatest temptation of all?


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…


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?

I've been in such a paranormal mood that I dived right into the next of the Dark Kings novels as soon as I finished that last.  And this one had a different twist that I was excited to read about.

To this point, the Dragon Kings have been drawn to human women but this story involves a Dragon King and a Dark Fae.  Definitely different dynamics there.  Add to that the worry about Ry.  Her story seems to be unfolding a piece at a time in each book.  Really want to know the answers for her. 

The characters in this series continue to draw me.  I loved Kiril at once though I was concerned about Shara.  She a dark fae after all.  But I ended up loving her too.  I was intrigued with Shara's story.  She's got compassion for humans that dark's don't have but she also wants very much to fit in with her dark fae family.  Her being sent to her room for hundreds of years hasn't changed the fact that she wants to be accepted by them.  But it becomes clear that to be accepted by her family, Shara would have to be someone she isn't.  I found that a pretty profound story in a paranormal book.

I enjoy this dragon world and the series overarching story that continues through each book.  I'm doubting some of the assumptions the kings are making about their enemies.  I do wish this part of the story would move a bit faster.  Oh course, if it did, there might not be as many books.  Sigh.  But I want to know what's up with Rhys.  It's making me crazy.  

The writing is good and the story sometimes went in directions I wasn't expecting.  Both good things.  I've been listening to the audiobooks and the narrator isn't my favorite but I do enjoy his accent.  Definitely jumping into the next book and probably the one after that.  Gonna devour them all and then be waiting impatiently for more.

If you enjoy paranormal, then this is a great story with hot protective guys!
