Dark Craving

A Dark King Story, #1

Dark Craving is a strong start for this exciting new series. I loved this story of forbidden love and am now happily addicted to the Dark Kings series. The story line was appealing. It featured the love story between Hal (dragon shifter) and Cassie (his forbidden love).

The immortal Dragon Kings have existed since the beginning of time. They are the guardians of humans and dragons. The pain of betrayal has led to the Kings forbidding themselves any feelings for humans. But things are changing.

When Hal rescues Cassie during a freezing snowstorm the unlikely pair become forbidden lovers. But could becoming involved with Hal be hazardous to Cassie's health?

A couple of things stood out in the story. The first was Hals steadfast feelings for Cassie. Once committed, he was willing to fight anyone to be with the woman he loved. The second was Cassie's easy acceptance of Hal. She embraced her dragon in all his glory.

I enjoyed reading this short novella. I am eagerly looking forward to the second entry in the series, "Nights Awakening".

Book Blurb for Dark Craving


Fueled by ancient magic--and enflamed by human desire--the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love...with a mortal woman. 

Searching for her brother in Scotland--and succumbing to the freezing cold--Cassie Hunter awakens to find herself in the arms of a magnificent Highland warrior. Across his chest is the tattoo of a fiery dragon. And in his heart is a burning passion that, once unleashed, will consume them both...body and soul. 

This is a story of destiny and desire, magic and mystery, warriors and lovers.

These are the forbidden cravings of the Dark Kings.

Don't miss the Dark Sword and Dark Warrior novels by Donna Grant--also set in this scintillating world of Highland magic and legendary lovers.
