Book Description

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have battled heaven and earth to protect their dragon magic. But when a beautiful mortal seeks refuge in their lair, she ignites a warrior's love, an enemy's wrath, and a firestorm of passion that could destroy them all…
Sammi Miller lives a quiet life as a pub owner in the Scottish Highlands--until the mob bursts in with guns blazing, looking for her ex-lover. Taking a bullet in the shoulder, she manages to escape and make her way to her half-sister Jane. Hidden away in the mountain fortress of the mysterious Dreagan Industries, Sammi finds more than a safe haven. She finds Tristan--the most gorgeous, beguiling, and haunted man she has ever known…
Newest of the Dragon Kings, Tristan fell from the sky in a snowstorm naked with a sword--but with no memories of his ancient struggles. When he meets the wounded Sammi, something powerful stirs within his heart. When he sees the dragon symbol etched into the bullet from her shoulder, something fierce burns within his soul. With his darkest enemies closing in, Tristan must take wing, take sides--and take no prisoners--to save the woman he's destined to love…in Fire Rising, second novel in the Dark Kings series
"Donna Grant spins a searing and intense tale [that] will keep readers spellbound."--Romance Reviews Today on the Dark Sword series

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Splendid Read June 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I must say that Donna Grant had improved her writing skill and technique. She plunged the series with many mysteries and given many clues for the readers to create their own assumptions. She had my head whirling in unraveling the mysteries. Hopefully, my long list of possibilities were close enough to the truth.

As I had mentioned in the past, the Dark Kings series was a spinoff of Dark Warriors. Tristan a.k.a. Duncan Kerr was Ian's twin brother. He died immediately in Dark Warriors series. He didn't get his own story. So, I was so glad that Ms. Grant did this splendid twist. Now, he was able to reconcile with his brother and found the love of his life. I greatly appreciate the appearance of the Dark Warriors in this book.

Unfortunately, the author failed to explain why Tristan was able to recollect his repressed memories as Duncan whenever he touched Sammi who had no Druid blood. Also, in the end, I had to assume that Rhi was rescued by Con even though it was not mentioned. Why else Con joined the rescue team if not for Rhi? He didn't come to rescue Denae when she was also captured by the Dark One. The readers would understand what I was trying to relay.

I love all her books. I especially love how she has incorporated the warriors in the dark Kings books. It's is always nice to revisits characters from previous books. The stories are always fresh the men always hunky. Who wouldn't dream of having a gorgeous man whisk you away from all your troubles. For anyone into paranormal , shifters or fantasy her books are a must read. I'm always anticipating the next book. Keep them coming I'm a big fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Donna Grant merges the three worlds June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
FIRE RISING’S ensemble cast of Dark Kings and Dark Warriors (and Dark Swords) merges the world of three of Donna’s most popular series. We get another look at some of the couples we have grown to love as they work together to save a woman who may or may not be the mate to one of their own. While the Dark King’s rule Scotland and The Dark Fae rule Ireland we will see a centuries old détente begin to crumble as Ulrik seeks the retribution and revenge against the Dark Kings he once called friends. He will never forgive King Constantine for the destruction of the woman he loved-even though-she put the entire species at risk.

Donna reveals the cruel and dangerous workings of the Dark Fae-how they destroy the Light; the evil that has become of a once beloved Fae; and the possibility of losing Rhi to the Dark side. We watch as one of the Dark Kings-Kiril- goes under cover in Ireland to ferret out any insider information that can be used against a most powerful enemy and in doing so sets up the next storyline in the Dark Kings series-BURNING DESIRE.

Donna Grant weaves an intriguing, seductive and compelling story of action, suspense and romance: where the powerful dragon is at risk of losing his heart and his soul; and where the enemy becomes more powerful every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Donna Grant. June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love these books. I am not good at giving reviews about books but I can say if you love Dragon Kings, Warriors, Fae and strong minded women who love them you will love Donna Grant's books. I rode my exercise bike for 102 minutes because I could not stop reading Fire Rising. I loved Tristan and Sammi's story. The months until the next Dragon King book is hard and I think it is going to be another great book. This will be Kiril's story. The book I am waiting for is Con's story.

I recommend all Donna Grant's books but you have to love Dragon Kings, Warriors, Fae, I should say dark and light Fae, and the women who love them.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really love all the dragons July 16, 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Pub owner Sammie Miller finds herself running for her life when her business partner steals money from the mob and comes after them. Her partner never made it out of the bar before it was blown up. After some time on the run and nowhere else to go she finds herself visiting her sister Jane for some much needed rest. To try to keep Jane safe she keeps her troubles to herself and vows to get away from Dreagan as soon as she can. Tristan still can't remember his life as Duncan. He fits into his new life as a Dragon King and really doesn't want to remember his supposed past. As soon as he lays eyes on Sammie he is immediately protective of her and shortly after that he starts having flashes of his past life as Duncan. With all the emotions running through him all he wants to do is keep Sammie safe but she doesn't make it easy.

I have to admit that Sammie and Tristan were not my favorite couple so far but they still fit together nicely, their story was still fantastic and I like how they tie the Dragon Kings together with the Dark Warriors. It's nice to see most of the crew together in FIRE RISING. I could not imagine being in Tristan's position and I really felt like he handled everything as best he could. I am glad that he has a better understanding of who he is but the end and that he has Sammie by his side as he worked everything out.

On the romance side of things FIRE RISING was still hot hot hot. There is a normal amount of fighting feelings at times on both sides but both Sammie and Tristan know that they are falling fast for each other and sparks fly from pretty much the beginning.

I really like how the series is a continuous story conflict with their own plot lines drawn in. I have found that each story in the series is full of action and danger.
