Hot Blooded (Dark Kings, #4) by Donna Grant ~ Review

The Dark Kings soldier on in their fight to preserve their dragon magic. But eternal doom is always close behind…


His name is Laith. To most, he’s known as the owner of a local pub near Dreagan. But little do his patrons know that beneath his handsome, charming exterior Laith has the heart and soul of a Dragon King—one who wields control by keeping his friends close and his enemies, just across the border, closer. Until a mysterious stranger enters the picture, and sets his whole world off course…


Iona is a woman with a mission: To learn the truth about her dead father. She’s returned to Scotland only to learn that she’s part of an ancient pact with Dreagan—one that will threaten the fragile peace with the Dragon Kings. Gorgeous, sly Iona isn’t like anyone Laith has ever met before . . . and she harbors a secret that others would kill to possess. Will she complete him—or destroy him? Passion always comes with a price…

I'm a very moody reader.  A reading slump ended with this series and I've been driven to just keep reading it.  Just not interested in anything else.  Hot Blooded was no exception.

Laith is a Dragon King that runs the local pub.  He's drawn to Iona, who comes to town to figure out what happened to her father.  She knows nothing of the Dragon Kings or the pack her family has had with them for generations.  What she remembers from her father is not exactly what she learns as she talks to people in the local town about him.  Something more is going on here.

Indeed it is and a lot of it revolves around the very hot guy who runs the pub.  Laith wants to protect Iona but how are things she's around getting out to their enemies.  Something is definitely going on.

I love this world and these characters.  I love seeing the characters from previous books as they interact with the current stars.  I love that they support each other.  I love the dragons and the secrets.  I really want the overarching story to move a bit faster but that's the only flaw I find.  Really the books happen just days from each other so I shouldn't complain.  But I do want some secrets discovered and some serious dark fae behind kicked.

This is one of those addictive series' that you can get lost in and forget there are even other book choices out there.  I just want more.  I go from one to the next and can't get enough.

It's a great paranormal world and if you haven't given it a chance, you should!
