Book Description

First in an exclusive four-part e-serial by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant!

In Darkest Flame: Part 1 Kellan has been asleep for over a thousand years. The Keeper of the Dreagan History, he prefers to be left alone, especially by the humans he despises. But when an alluring woman is left to die in his cave, he is moved by her situation—and her beauty—to help her in the only way he knows how…to take her to Dreagan Manor…

Betrayed and left for dead, Denae has little idea of how she ended up at Dreagan. Promised with a new identity in exchange for information, Denae knows this is her chance at a new life. What she doesn’t expect is the uncontrollable desire she feels for her irresistibly sexy rescuer. A man whose secrets appear to run as dark as his passion…

"Time travel, ancient legends, and seductive romance are seamlessly interwoven into one captivating package."—Publishers Weekly on the Dark Warrior series

"Once again, Donna Grant has given the readers a great story." —Night Owl Reviews Top Pick on MIDNIGHT'S PROMISE

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and Steamy Dragon Shifters?? Yes, please.... April 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
For fans of this author and those who have read...The Dark Heat: The Dark Kings stories... this appears to be a spin-off of that series. You can absolutely read this as a stand alone though...
The blurb actually does a pretty good job of giving you the basics of the overall story so I won't elaborate any further on the plot. But, I am definitely hooked into the story. Hot and steamy dragon shifters who live masked behind Dreagan industries in one of my favorite settings: The Scottish Highlands! The Scottish accents alone just make me smile.
I love all of the characters so far and I am a huge fan of strong, smart heroines. Denae is just that and well, she has to be since she is a secret agent. Keegan and Denae are clearly drawn to one another and I can already feel the tension!
Well written, engaging with great characters! Looking forward to part two...

5.0 out of 5 stars Done in the name of love June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kellan and Cassie fought the attraction they felt for each other and neither wanted to be the first to mention it. As far as Cassie knew, the fascination and invisible pull she felt for Kellan was one sided. Once you throw in a few stubborn dark fae trying to get Kellan's secret information the action really begins to heat up. Rhi, a light fae, who wasn't suppose to be helping the Dragon Kings, was introduced as a new and fascinating character. You must read the book to get to know the exciting light fae character and discover her secrets. Personally, I love this entire series and would easily recommend it to anyone who loves the beauty and magic of Scotland, with a touch of "the other realms", and of course sexy men in kilts who could romance the coldest of women are always a plus!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scotland and Dragons! A winning combination! May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Scotland and Dragons! A winning combination!

This was a FABULOUS read with sexy, macho DRAGONS and FAE. It's loaded with espionage and sizzling, awesomely hot romance!

The Darkest Flame was originally published as a four-part serialized story. The 1st three parts leave the reader with major cliffhangers. I am NOT a fan of serialized books and I avoid cliffhangers if I can. Fortunately, The Darkest Flame is now available all together - that's the way I read it - and I inhaled the book all in one day! I absolutely could not put it down once I started it. My review is for the whole book.

5.0 out of 5 stars great first installment for the dragon kings May 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Denae Lacroix is an American working for the M15 , she is strong, beautiful and has a photographic memory. She is sent on a secret mission with a fellow M15. To Scotland to investigate the get info on the mysterious Dreagon industries. Where she finds out that she is going to be used as bait to bring out the mystery . As she survives the onslaught of her partners assault. They awake the mysterious Kellan , who is a dragon who has been asleep for centuries . As he watches her there is a pull between them

Will they survive each other and the impending fae war

This is the first book in the series. Donna takes us for a ride . Between Denae finding out about the dragon Kings and not wanting to go back to the M15 .

Kellan is one very hot man/dragon king . That does not like humans and has been sleeping for centuries but he is attracted to Denae but is fighting it evey which way.

As the M15 loom closer they must hide Denae. Will Kellan be able to keep his mind in the game to save her
