"Heat" is book twelve in Donna Grant's awesome Dark Kings series!
Like always, this author has written one hell of a story as she pits her Dragon Kings and their mates against formidable enemies with one intricate twist after another. Okay, I loved Nikolai and Esther, and if it's even possible, I grew more intrigued with Ulrik. Esther is an ex MI5 agent who has some deep secrets after a powerful Druid messed with her mind. She was left feeling very vulnerable which was something she just wasn't used to in her life. She was drawn to Nikolai and asked the gorgeous Dragon King to help her find the Druid and recover her missing memories. Nikolai was drowning in guilt and needed to have a reckoning with Ulrik, who saved him when he was an orphaned hatchling. That part was the hook that got me at the beginning. As usual, there were other important story threads woven into this book .... it's untelling what will happen next. I loved it all .... but mostly I just really want Rhi to be reunited with her Dragon King. Maybe it's wishful thinking but I still think that it's Con. Lastly, It's looking more and more like Ulrik might be one of the good guys yet. It also looks like Ulrik and Eilish could be teaming up soon. The Villain and his Villainess. I think that Donna Grant can pull it off .....
So far this is my favorite book in the Dark Kings series. I loved the characters and especially the depth of emotions that were woven into them. I loved the way the author continues unraveling one mystery after another. This is what brings me back to this amazing series and eager for every new book.
He knew her round eyes and the deep shade of brown along with the band of black that encircled her irises. He knew the slope of her breasts, the indent of her waist, and the flare of her hips. He knew the way she preferred to wear muted colors to help her blend in with a crowd. It had taken one look to put all that to memory, but he found his eyes going to her again and again, as if he couldn’t get enough.

Ever since MI5 agent Esther woke to discover her mind taken over with magic, she feels like a stranger to herself. She looks to a notorious dragon, one who has the power to help her find her memory. But as she and Nikolai come closer to discovering what really happened to her, a dangerous passion ignites between them. Can this lone Dragon King help the woman he’s grown to love to uncover the truth about her past—or will a deep and fiery danger tear them both apart in Heat, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.
