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...
Note: Night Blaze will be released in four-parts as a weekly serial starting March 10
True confession time. I’m a romance reader who thinks dragons are epically cool yet Night's Blaze is THE FIRST DRAGON SHIFTER ROMANCE I’VE READ. I’m not sure how this is possible. I mean, I even made my kids sit through several showings of Cartoon Network’s Firebreather. Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let’s dig into dragons, shall we?
Since this is my first dragon shifter book, my high-school-math word-problem knowledge also says this is my first book in Donna Grant’s Dark Kings series. It took me a bit to work out the story to-date, but it didn’t hamper my reading of Night’s Blaze.
