About this ebook

Flame is the next Dark Kings book in New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant's series.

If she believed in destiny, she would believe they were meant for each other.
But that fire was put out long ago. . .

Living among the Dragon Kings, Cain has spent lifetimes learning to distrust both mortals and Fae. He is a warrior born—and every instinct demands that he fight to keep his own kind safe. But when a fringe member of the Dark Fae contacts the Kings with an urgent warning, Cain is torn for the first time. How can he trust this beautiful creature when resisting his primal attraction to her is battle enough?

Noreen is horrified by what her kind and the malevolent Others are planning for the Dragon Kings. Dark Fae or not, there are lines she will not cross—even if it means risking her life. But she never imagined that she would risk her heart until she meets Cain. She wants him with a soul-deep desire that frightens her...and endangers them both. Is saying goodbye to everything Noreen has ever known worth a love that will span time and realms?

Praise for the Dark Kings series:

“Provocative [and] sizzling.”—RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

“A must-read.”—Night Owl Reviews

Flame by is a paranormal romance Donna Grant. Ms. Grant has delivered a well-written book. The characters are fantastic but plentiful, you may want to read previous books to understand this book better. Noreen is a Dark Fae and firmly under the thumb of Moreann, Empress of the Druids, but she is determined to warn the Dragon Kings of Moreann's plans. Cain is one of the Dragon Kings and it's his job to find out what Noreen knows after she sent the Dragon Kings an email of warning. Noreen and Cain's story is packed with drama, humor, sexy bits, action and suspense. I enjoyed reading Flame but now I need to go back and read the previous book to better appreciate this one. Flame is book 17 of the Dark Kings Series and can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Flame by Donna Grant Dark Kings #17 Cain, a dragon king, is sent to find out if the email sent to warn them is valid or a tricky trap. So, off he goes, meets the sender, sets a debrief in motion and that debrief ends up rather steamy from time to time. The information Dark Fae Noreen has is from her time with the Others, a group that has a plot in play, a plot that will endanger the dragons. Will her information help? Is she a spy? Does she have information that will help? The book has steamy romance, dragon kings, druids, fae, good and evil, an intricate plot, plenty of characters to track, side stories and threads that it would be helpful to have read previous books to understand all that takes place. The ending settles who the mate of Dragon King Cain will be but doesn’t necessarily provide a HEA for all of the dragons…yet. I have not read the entire series of this made up world that the dragon kings belong to but have read enough to know that I really do want the various groups to find a solution that will make the earth a safe and happy place for all. I would love to find out if the dragons that were sent away are still alive and where they are and if they will ever return. I would love to see the fae realm come together and unite. I would love to find out what happens in the end. Not sure when that will be but hope it will be soon. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Paperbacks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

I am a die-hard fan of Donna Grant's writing. I fell in love with her after a friend insisted I read Dark Highlander. I've been on the boat ever since. I love the Dark Highlander series and I've enjoyed everything else she's written. However, the Dark King series has been outstanding. I've been absorbed by this world for quite some time. If you've been reading this series from book #1 you are in for a wonderful read. I don't recommend picking this book up and reading it without reading the previous books. This world is well developed and has so much going on that a new reader will know they are missing something. They may enjoy the story but they would be selling themselves short on a great book. Cain and Noreen's story is everything you want from a love story. They have great chemistry and I loved them together. Now, everything going on outside of Cain and Noreen is exceptional. As I stated above, I'm a huge DG fan but this book is at the top of the list of favorites. I highly recommend for those following the series. If you haven't already read the Dark King and Reaper books... Hurry and devour them all so you can enjoy this world of dragons and Reapers as much as I have.
