About this ebook


Nikki Gray has reason to hate the dragon hunters—they brutally murdered one of her friends a year ago. Not only that, they have caused havoc on several of the British dragon clans, injuring countless individuals. Determined to defeat the hunters by kidnapping their leader, Simon Bourne, she teams up with a human male in the British special forces. After six months of work, they’re finally ready to carry out their mission and capture Bourne. However, one ill-timed kiss derails their plans and changes their lives forever.

At the request of his sister, Rafe Hartley agrees to work with the dragon-shifters. After all, the dragon hunters are a pain in his arse and the fewer of them, the better. The dragonwoman assigned as his Stonefire liaison, however, is the same one he hurt four years ago when they were both stationed in Afghanistan. Somehow they both manage to pretend the past never happened, but with each passing encounter, he’s drawn more and more to the lively, stubborn dragonwoman. When he finally gives in to his attraction and kisses her, it turns his life upside down.

Rafe and Nikki must now decide what to do with their futures. Can they still work together and find a way to capture Simon Bourne? Or, will their fated kiss result in a divide that can’t be healed?

Donovan returns to Stonefire with a novel that will knock your socks off. Vivid descriptions bring this vividly crafted world to life as readers are kept on their toes with plot twists and turns galore. I love how readers are front and centre as laws are being made & the status quos are being challenged. This intricately crafted world is ever changing as events occur to change previous beliefs and necessities. It’s all so real. At the same time, suspense runs high and danger lurks around the corner. Topped off with sizzling chemistry and hot romance, how can one go wrong? I love how approachable yet larger than life the characters in this novel are. The role reversal in this one was priceless. Donovan flipped the entire male/female shifter roles while also maintaining an alpha male to beat all alphas. The Rafe/Kai animosity was integral in showing Rafe’s personality (and just plain comical to boot). His past with respect to dragons was heartbreaking but his strength admirable. And the way that he redirects his alpha instincts around Nikki? Fantastic! I enjoyed seeing Nikki’s inner thoughts. The different ways that she felt she needed to prove herself and her unique place in the clan was fascinating. Reliving Nikki’s past was emotional and shocking. It really served to create a connection with the character. The relationship between these two was awesome. The mate claim frenzy was as hot as ever, but the way that they truly got to know one another took it to a whole new level. Donovan has once again created a suspenseful and sizzling hot novel that had me surrendering to it. She pulled me into the intricate and unforgettable world that she’s created to escape reality for a short while. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

As always Ms Donovan has gifted us with another can't-put-down-read! When I read the blurb I couldn't figure out how one lousy (or in this case hot as heck) kiss could change lives. Now I know. And ain't it grand? These two unlikely lovers are unique, stubborn, loyal and strong emotionally as well as physically. Both soldiers, I love the times Ms. takes Mr. down. It is so different with having the female dragon and the male human--what a wonderful story. They are so strong with heartbreaking histories getting to know each other has blockades that must be broken down. Watching the male dragons around Nikki try to stare down Rafe is both funny and rewarding to see him stand his ground. The dangers to their love are legal and physical as well as emotional. The dragon Hunters brought them together, will they tear them apart or worse take their lives? The mate claim is strong, however there is little time to recover with the missions pressing. How will they deal with the results? Their love story is touching and scary. Not only does Rafe have to win his lady love--she has a clan of dragons—the legal system against him. Is he up to the task? If he can win over Nikki's dragon he'll have a strong ally. And once again the dragon's internal conversations with her human is sometimes funny, sometimes profound and just good sense—when she isn't trying to get more sex. Yes, female dragons are just as sex-minded as the males. Another opportunity to revisit some of our favorite old friends and make new ones. This is a not to miss read as are all of Jessie Donovan books. Enjoy this strong recommend. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.
