Hot Blooded is definitely one of my favorites in the Dark Kings series so far... and, the way it ended has me dying for the next book! Looks like Rhys and Lily are finally going to get their book... Can't wait... :))
It goes without saying that I love all of the dragon kings, but I particularly loved the pairing of Laith and Iona. She is such a strong female character. As a soldier and a traveling photographer, she lives simply and always on the road never setting down roots in any one place. And love, nope... she's not a fan of that concept.
She comes back to Scotland to re-connect with her father only to find out that he had died. Iona had an image of her father that turns out to be completely wrong as she gets to know all of the friends he left behind. What she doesn't know is that she has inherited a pact that has been handed down their bloodline for many generations. The land that she has inherited must be guarded and the kings have to find a way to ensure that the land stays in Campbell hands.
Laith has been put to the task of making sure Iona stays to take over the responsibility of the pact. When he meets Iona... well... let's just say the flames were lit!
Along with the blooming love story between Laith and Iona, we also get to see a new side of Rhi, the light fae. My heart went out to her so much. She is no longer the same fae that she was before she was tortured by the dark. It will be interesting to see how her character evolves from this point on... she is definitely more powerful than anyone realized.
Rhys, unfortunately, is not recovering well from the attack by the Dark fae in the last book. I was so sad for him. His injuries lead to something that every dragon king fears.

I stumbled across Donna Grant's Dark King series by accident. I can't believe how lucky I was. The story lines are thrilling without going overboard. The romance is great without going to the erotic. It isn't needed in the stories, and, I for one, appreciate that it wasn't used as filler. Hot Blooded continues the tale, adding more history to the world of the Dragon Kings. The evil man, that is out to destroy them, is just as bold as ever. Years of planning shows just how angry he is with the kings. And yet we still don't know who he is or why he is going to such extremes. Hot Blooded is the story of Laith, pub owner and paralyzing gas dragon. He has watched the others gain mates, and wants nothing to do with it. When the property owner/gate keeper adjacent to them is murdered, his life changes. Iona, the estranged daughter and photographer, was already on her way to Scotland when she gets the news. She wants nothing to do with Scotland or her father's past. It is Laith's duty to change her mind, protect her, and protect the gateway.

When you start reading a book and the the characters and plot wrap around your heart and doesn't let go you know you are reading a good book. For me that moment came around page 5 or 6. I love the world that Donna Grant has created. When I read this book I totally dissapeared and was lost in it.

Laith is a Dragon King. He can shift into a dragon. He doesn't want to fall in love and get mated like his friends have.

Iona is a photographer who has been away from Ireland for 20 years. Her father dies and she returns to handle the stuff that was left. She doesn't want to be in a realtionship. She is not a people person with deep trust issues.

She and Laith met and hit it off from the start. You find yourself willing them to be together and keep everyone safe.

There is fighting, secrets, a betrayal. It is action packed. This is my favorite in the series so far. You meet a few new characters as well as getting to keep up with the ones you already know. The next book in the series cannot come out quick enough for me.

Another Great Addition to the Dragon King Series by the Talented Donna Grant!This series is sexy, sinful and addictive. I’ve never been to Scotland but I’ve felt like I have and definitely want to go after reading about Dreagan. This book will leave you up late into the night and longing for the next one. 
I was hooked from the first time I read The Dark Sword Series and then came The Dark Warriors and they truly just keep getting better! The Dragon Kings are one of a kind! Also, it’s always great to hear a little more about the Warriors and what’s happening in their lives. Those men are not to be tamed and are still fighting for all that is right and good!

Iona is independent and used to being alone. She also does not believe in love. She is never in one place for long and that’s just how she likes it, however she is about to discover that her past is not as it seemed. For years she believed one thing to find out that she had it completely wrong and has lost time she can never get back. As she discovers her heritage, she also realizes that there is more to life .When she lays eyes on Laith, for the first time she wants to stay and experience the passion that burns between them even if it can’t possibly last forever.

Laith is content with his life by doing his part of protecting the secrets of Dreagan and running his Pub. He has seen many of the other Dragon Kings find their mates and he believes he wants no part of it but what Iona makes him feel is indescribable. He longs for more time with her but is also afraid of how to tell her the dangerous secret that her family has held for centuries and could destroy all that they hold dear at Dreagan if found by their enemies.
