Blaze (A Dark Kings Novel, #11) by Donna Grant ~ Review

His strength, his masculinity brought out something primal within her. In his arms, she felt like the Amazon warrior she'd once pretended to be as a little girl.
Anson is a fierce Dragon King, a dragon shapeshifter born and bred to protect his own. But when a rogue tech company hacks into their world, he must join forces with the unlikeliest of allies: a human female. Her name is Devon Abrams. A rising star at the firm, she has no idea that her boss is in league with the sinister Fae and their secret war against humanity. If Anson gains her trust, he can defeat the enemy from within. But first he must fight his own attraction--to this exquisitely beautiful mortal...

Devon loves her job at the firm. But sometimes she wishes she could find a man--a real man--who isn't threatened by her success. When she first meets Anson, she's overwhelmed by his powerful masculine presence and disarmingly gorgeous smile. But when he reveals his true mission--and his ability to transform into a dragon--she's irresistibly drawn into an epic battle between humans and immortals, magic and technology, danger and desire. Anson vows to protect her from the Fae. But can he control the flames of passion that blaze within his heart, in Blaze, the next sexy Dragon romance in the Dark Kings series from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

I have really enjoyed this series.  Dragons, magic, Fae and more, the lore is interesting and unique.  This world is well built and has room for many great stories.  I love series like that.  Once I've entered them, I just want all the stories.

Anson is there to get the information a security firm has on the Dragons.  He's trying to keep everyone safe.  But this strong king of the Browns never saw Devon coming.  His heart is lost before he even realizes it.  Love that.  I do adore him.  He's protective and sexy but also determined.  He will protect her.  His gift leads to some interesting developments between him and his mate.  I like how there are still surprises when humans and dragons get together.

Devon is a strong women with a troubled past.  That past has shaped her and made her the workaholic shining star in this tech company.  But she has some integrity too.  Once she finds out what Kivore is doing, she's willing to take risks to stop them.  I liked that about her.

Of course, there is no hope and things go wrong.  The dark Fae are always there to take advantage.  They don't care who sees them.  As a result, they make deals with even more evil and cause all kinds of issues for the Dragons.  In addition to Anson and Devon's story, this book continues the thread of a certain light Fae.  The whole world of the light Fae seems to be in jeopardy.  I wonder when that ax will fall?  It makes for a rich story that continues to hold my interest and have me coming back for more.

There is this druid too.  She's American.  And she's powerful.  I have a lot of interest in her and her motives.  Definitely has me wanting to pick up the next book to see if the Dragons can figure her out.  I hope so.  I'm on their side, cheering.  It's time for something to turn in their favor.  

This is a great series that has me wanting to go back and read the ones it sprang from.  The Warriors made an appearance in this book and they sound so interesting.  I need to go back and read about them.

Deliciously satisfying, this story delivered just what I was looking for.
