This is the first installment of Donna Grant's new Dark King series. This is a spin-off from her Dark Warrior series. I love the way Ms. Grant went from the world of the Warriors straight into the world of the Dark Kings. She has a way of bringing life to her characters so that you find yourself becoming invested in what happens to them. I found this story to be fast-paced and the plot will keep you entertained until the last page. Once I got started I could not put this book down until I was done reading it. I look forward to the next installment of this series, "Fire Rising."
Denae Lacroix is an agent for MI-5. She is from Texas but was hired by MI-5 for her photographic memory. Denae and one other agent were sent to do reconnaissance at Dreagan. She is not told what their mission is. When her fellow agent attacks her, she knows something is very wrong. She is wounded during the fight and now she is at the mercy of the men at Dreagan. And one man who she can't stop thinking about.
Dragon King Kellan has been asleep for close to 1200 years. After the death of his dragons at the hands of the humans they were trying to protect, Kellan can not stand the sight of a human. He is awakened by the fight between the two agents. After the fight is over, one agent is dead and the other one is injured. Kellan doesn't care if both humans die but he knows he must take the female to the King and let him decide what to do with her. The more time Kellan stays in his human form and the more time he stays with Denae, the more he finds himself drawn to her. With MI-5 and a dark unknown enemy after not only Denae but the kings as well, Kellan will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
In Darkest Flame by Donna Grant, the Dark Kings have fought for centuries to preserve their dragon magic. But one of the most powerful warriors of his kind will be put to the ultimate test. Is he strong enough to resist his greatest temptations? Or will he be forced to surrender—body and soul?
HER BEAUTY IS A WEAPON.
Denae Lacroix is a beautiful MI5 agent on a deadly mission. Sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the mysterious Dreagan Industries, she discovers too late that she’s been set up—as human bait. She is an irresistible lure for a man who has not seen or touched a woman for centuries. He is a man with a destiny—and a desire—that could destroy them both…
HIS PASSION IS A CURSE…
It’s been twelve hundred years since Kellan has walked among humans—and there’s no denying the erotically charged attraction he feels for Denae. But as a Dragon King, he is sworn to protect his secrets. Yet the closer he gets to this smart, ravishing woman, the more her life is in danger. All it takes is one reckless kiss to unleash a flood of desire, the fury of dragons…and the fiercest enemy of all.
