Paranormal Romance -April 5th, 2011
Hidden Embers is the second in Tessa Adams's dragon series about powerful dragon shifters who hide from humankind. Although part of a series, it can easily be read by itself.
The Dragonstar clan has always been a powerful group of dragon shifters but other clans have been jealous of their wealth and status. Now their clan is being attacked from within. As an insidious and mysterious disease is slowly killing them one by one. The pressure is on; if they don't find a cure their clan soon become extinct. Their King's fiancée recommends outside help, a human woman named Dr. Jasmine Kane.
Their resident healer, Quinn Maguire is frustrated and depressed with his inability to find a cure. The death of his brother is almost the last straw. He is also resentful and untrusting about bringing a human consultant no matter how intelligent. But Jasmine challenges Quinn and their attraction for each other brings complications as Jasmine is not a dragon shifter. In addition, danger lurks within their clan and if they don't discover its source in time it may all be over.
This is a compelling story as the Dragonstar clan frantically searches for a cure to save themselves from extinction. The intrigue as the rival Wyvernmoons clan jostles for power and plots the downfall of the Dragonstar clan is exciting to read. I enjoyed the heated romance between the hero and heroine more in this book than the prior because I felt I got to know really the main characters. Jasmine comes from a life of abuse and values her independence. Although she is attracted to Quinn she wants her autonomy, too.Read more ›
Quinn Maguire has seen too much death strike his clan and his family. Grieving over the death of his brother, Quinn is looking for a way to forget. A brilliant doctor, he has not been able to fight the virus that is slowly taking out members of the Dragonstar clan. Quinn feels like a failure and needs to drown his sorrows. While trying to numb the pain in a bottle of Patron, Quinn feels his inner beast come to life when Jasmine Kane (Jazz) walks into the bar. Jazz takes a seat next to Quinn and the attraction is instantaneous and explosive.
Jazz is more than willing to have a one night stand with the sexy stranger. She has been recovering from a terrible accident and was more than willing to drive out to New Mexico when her friend Phoebe called, asking for help finding a cure for a unique virus. After a steamy, sexy night, Jazz leaves Quinn, shaken by how intense her reaction to him was. Both are shocked when Jazz arrives at the Dragonstar property and Quinn realizes that Jazz is the doctor he will be working with in trying to find a cure.
Hidden Embers is the first book I've read about dragon shape-shifters. Who knew that dragons can be sexy? Hidden Embers started off with lots of heat. The attraction between Quinn and Jazz exploded off the page. Let's just say, I'll never look at a bottle of Patron the same way again. Quinn and Jazz constantly bump heads when working on a cure for the virus. Jazz is an independent woman who is used to working on her own and alone. She doesn't appreciate the protectiveness that Quinn exhibits towards her. Jazz's "I am Woman, Hear Me Roar" attitude grated on my nerves a little.Read more ›
We pick up a couple of months after the first book and the Dragonstar clan is still being picked off one by one by the horrible disease they cannot seem to get ahead of. Since they are rapidly running out of ideas they decide to call for reinforcements. Phoebe (from book one) has a brilliant friend, Jasmine, that is on leave from the Center for Disease Control and asks her to come down for a couple of months to help out. Jasmine is a woman who has had a rough past and her recent accident has kept her from working and left her restless. She sees coming to help her friend Phoebe as a great opportunity, she does not see how coming New Mexico will change her life forever, until she meets Quinn.
Speaking of Quinn, the man has been through his fair share of pain in the past. He has lost numerous members of his clan to a disease he cannot figure out and his brother is starting to show symptoms. He places the weight of the world on his shoulders and has a hard time forgiving himself for the troubles of his clan, even if they are completely out of his control. He has a good heart, but he keeps walls around it, until he meets Jasmine. She walks into his life and all the barriers he built up, shatter.
Quinn and Jasmine have explosive chemistry from the first moment they lay eyes on each other. They are completely wrong for each other, he is clearly alpha male material and she craves independence, from everyone.Read more ›
