Kiss of Fire
The Dragonfire Novels Book 1
This is the first of the Dragonfire series. I picked this series up out of curiosity since there are not a lot of books out there about dragon shape shifters.
Sara Keegan was an accountant in a fast paced job with not a lot of time for a personal life. When her great aunt passed, she left Sara her New Age bookstore. Sara traded her cold job for the only place that had ever felt like home. Closing up shop one night, Sara is attacked and almost killed by a mysterious man. What was even more mysterious is that Sara is pretty sure that a dragon saved her life. When she comes to, a man is standing in the dragon’s place. When she encounters the same man the next day at the art show near her store, she finally discovers his name. Quinn Tyrrell is a dragon and a blacksmith. He has kept himself apart from others of his kind. But meeting Sara is going to change all of that. Will they triumph over the forces trying to kill Sara and discover if love is in their future?
I enjoyed this, it was unique. While some of the events were almost too much, they didn’t go over the edge. Both Quinn and Sara were true to their natures. I really liked the way their relationship evolved even though it took place over a short amount of time. The only thing that really nagged at me was that Sara didn’t even think of calling the cops after she was attacked. It was a good thing she didn’t since it was a supernatural attack but still it bothered me. I am planning on diving right in to Kiss of Fury and Kiss of Fate to find out what happens next.

For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have lived peacefully as guardians of both the four elements and the earth’s treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth’s treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, has begun…
One kiss can change the course of destiny…
When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.
Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.
