The romance was HOT!
Rebecca L. Chatfield
I felt the love they captured and knew nothing would tear them apart and the Pyr would be stronger for it.

I really enjoy this writer's approach to translating her story.

Eileen Grosvenor woke up from a strange dream with wet hair and lily weeds in it. However Eileen is scared of the water and would never go swimming in a river or pond. This dream was even stranger as she seemed to know the man that reached out to her - one she has never seen before. Dreams put into the background, Eileen is running out of time on her project of tracking down the roots of a legend that she is trying to trace. One that tells of a maiden, a dragon and a doomed love.

Erik Sorensson is the leader of the Pyr dragons. On the new eclipse he meets with the Pyr to see who will be meeting their mate this time. Imagine his surprise when it's him and he recognizes something from his past in the woman pictured. Not sure he wants a second chance, Erik knows he can't ignore the firestorm but how it is fulfilled is the question.

Eileen and Erik come together over an ancient relic that both the Pyr and the Slayers want - for very different reasons. Danger follows them through the English countryside and further into the States. Erik needs to keep both Eileen and the relic safe from harm even at the risk of himself. Eileen knows she needs to save Erik and is ready to risk her heart in order to do so. When the final decisions and battles are raged can Erik and Eileen find the trust and love to finish on top?

After losing everything, can a Dragon really believe in a second chance? Kiss of Fate concerns the leader of the Pyr, Erik, and we learn his past and his future. Eileen has been having strange dreams, not only of a lover but also of a much loved baby son. Strange since she is divorced and has no children. Erik lost every loved one in his life long ago and never expected to be given another shot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wasn't expecting to like Pyr leader Erik as a leading man as he inexplicably gets a second Firestorm which is the rare gift of mating heat in his Dragonshifting race - from the previous books I pictured him as the dedicated old guy (but then again since all of the dragonshifting Pyr have passed the century mark, I guess old is sort of relative). Fortunately Cooke thoroughly overcame my preconceptions. She did an excellent job of turning Erik into a leading man -- gave him a worthy and perceptive mate in his reincarnated wife Eileen and put obstacles in Erik's way which required him to grow as a character -- the result was Kiss of Fate is the best of the Dragonfire series so far.

One of the things that made Kiss of Fate even better than the previous Dragonfire books ( Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire, Book 1), Kiss of Fury (Dragonfire, Book 2)) was that there wasn't some artifice to keep the pair from succumbing to the Firestorm. Erik and Eileen both accepted that their attraction would be taken to its natural conclusion and the events that author Cooke used to delay the eventual consumation of the Firestorm to build the sensual tension between the pair seemed more natural this time around. Another plus was that Cooke didn't just rely on dream sequences to share Erik's painful past. Since Eileen was a collector of supernatural tales, Cooke used 'story telling' by her characters - quite effectively - to tell us of the tragedy of Eileen and Erik's past life together and to allow Erik to share the pieces of the past which were crippling him.

Definitely enjoyable. In this addition, Eric, the leader of the dragon Pyr, is called to his firestorm. Stragely enough, Eric had already had a firestorm (they're only suppose to happen once in a life time) many years ago that ended badly. Not only did his wife die, but his son turned evil. Now he is given a second chance with his reincarnated wife from the past. She is different and stronger now, but Eric is still afraid of making the wrong choices.

The story centers more around Eric and Eileen's relationship. The dragon's teeth (which the dragons are fighting over) are a subplot to this story. Most of the time I would find this annoying because I like the action, but I think Cooke did a wonderful job on this one. The flashbacks to the past and the complex relationship between Eric, Eileen, and their son was touching. I especially liked the surprise ending.

Erik Sorensson knows that a dragon lucky enough to have a firestorm in his lifetime is a lucky dragon indeed. As the leader of the Pyr, he knows that dragons anxiously await the coming of their fated Mate and so on the new eclipse he and his fellow dragons meet once again to see who is going to exhibit the next firestorm. When Erik recognizes the woman in the crystal, he is beside himself. The woman in question is Erik's firestorm - his second.

Eileen Grosvenor has been having many strange dreams. Waking up with wet hair after a harrowing nightmare involving water, she tries to remember the dream only to be able to remember the man in it - a man she has never seen before but can't seem to forget. When she comes face to face with this same man later that night, and he suddenly turns scaly, Eileen fears she is losing her mind. Having no choice but to trust Mr. Big, Mean and Fiery, Eileen allows him to fly her to safety - only to realize hours later that she is in just as much danger as before.

Erik tries to convince Eileen to allow him to be in charge of the relics she somehow has in her possession. The Pyr need the relics, but so do the Slayers. Danger follows them back to America, but somehow Erik finds a way to keep him and Eileen safe. After all, she is his future - one that he never thought he would have again.

KISS OF FATE is the story of second chances. Pyr are rarely lucky enough to find their first firestorm, not to mention their second one. It is because of this that Erik is so leery of Eileen in the beginning. The more time she spends with him, the more he is able to realize that yes, miracles do happen, and his miracle just happens to be named Eileen.
