    Finally everything starts coming together with answers getting ever closer and after twelve books it's about time ! I loved this series when it began but after so many books if brutally honest I kind of started to feel frustrated as the author constantly teased us about the connection between Rhi and the Dragon Kings. Here we see Rhi start to truly become the awesome character that we always knew she was plus Con is starting to crack and I'm sure every other fan of this series has been dying for that. Oh and Ulrik might just step in and save the day, or will he ?

    Still in typical fashion all this amazing background is wrapped around a romance and this time it's Nikolai and Esther ( Henrys sister) . Esther fell foul of the Druid working with Ulriks uncle and her memory is fragmented but luckily she is partnered with Nikolai who has an amazing gift that could really help. I liked both these characters and felt their attraction and subsequent romance seemed believable but you just know there's going to be a fly in the works and yes it's Nikolai and believe it or not his history with Ulrik . To say more would be unfair on my fellow readers but keep watching out for scenes with Rhi because those pesky secrets are starting to unravel!

    This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    A magic induced coma leads to intense fiery passion.

    bestselling author Donna Grant continues her

    series with another must read for long time fans.

    is one hot read, I’d take the title as fair warning!!

    MI5 agent Esther has had her memory affected by magic. To discover what the magic is hiding, she seeks out the one dragon with the power to help her. Nikolai is not one to be defeated, so it becomes a matter of pride to find the answers. As the flames of their passion rise so does the danger of discovering the truth.

    Fast paced and thrilling. We get some answers and a few more secrets to mull over. Grant continues the overall storyline that moves from book to book, but this one centers around Nikolai and his mate, Esther. It is filled with suspense and will have you on the edge of your seat. The way everything fits together, but still leaves questions isn’t a disappoint like it sometimes is. I found that it left me anxiously awaiting more and I cannot wait for the next book!

    Both Nikolai and Esther are strong characters. Their passion mixed with the suspense brings the heat, just as the title suggests. Their story intertwines with past and continuing storylines, and while I enjoyed it, I highly recommend starting from the beginning. I mean we are in double digit books with this series, starting here will definitely leave you a bit confused.

    If you’ve read and enjoyed Grant’s work before, you will not regret picking this one up. 4.5 stars

    Heat is Book 12 in the Dark Kings series. You will want to start at the beginning because while each book focuses on one couple, all characters are revisited in each book and an overall plot continues from book to book. We also have a crossover with the Reapers series.

    So far, Heat is my favorite. I felt we are getting some good answers and getting closer to the end. Nikolai and Esther were an easy couple to root for. I was engrossed with their journey to retrace Esthers steps to find the Druid who stole her memories. It was interesting to see that not everything is so black and white. I want Ulrick to come back to the Dragon Kings so badly!

    There are so many characters to follow and to figure out who’s side is on good or evil. There are still a lot of questions, but my curiosity is so great that every time a answer was uncovered I get more excited. I’m looking forward to the next book! ARC provided by NetGalley.

    HEAT is book twelve in the series and it features the sultry Nikolai and a character that we’ve seen before in the series named Esther. Esther was possessed by Druid magic and was sent to kill others. Now that she has regained her own mind back, she is trying to collect her missing memories. Nikolai, the strong and silent one, is right there to help her.

    I really loved the romance in this one. Although some emotions were present from the very beginning, Grant never uses that to spur on the rest of the book. She takes her time to build the relationship between Esther and Nikolai and in the end, I really loved how it turned out.

    I’m a big fan of Grant’s heroes. They’re sturdy, sexy heroes who I feel like you can count on. They aren’t overly flashy or unnecessarily alpha. They are just the perfect blend of intense and comforting. I feel like Grant writes the types of heroes that women want to marry and I definitely wanted to spend the rest of my days reading about Nikolai.

    Things with Ulrik and Con heat up as well and I love that Grant has been building up to this moment for a while. It makes loyal readers like me extremely satisfied to see everything plotted out so well over the course of the series. Other POVs are included as well, enhancing the narration and furthering the plot. I can see Grant writing a lot of books in this series without it becoming stale to readers and this book is proof that she is able to writing interesting stories for her heroines.

    A lot of people have been asking me if they need to read Grant’s previous series to enjoy this one. I always think it’s best to read everything the way it was meant to be read, but I don’t think you’ll have a problem jumping into this world. Just keep in mind that you’ll encounter other characters from past series here.

    I started

    a little unenthusiastically. Come on…it’s Book #12, haven't we covered everything we can yet? Aren’t we going to see the same story again with different names? So, I opened it, started, and then proceeded to nod my head in acknowledgement and praise to the author. It was different, interesting and completely sucked me in. I never once felt annoyed or frustrated hashing over old topics. There wasn’t a time that I felt like it

    I started

    a little unenthusiastically. Come on…it’s Book #12, haven't we covered everything we can yet? Aren’t we going to see the same story again with different names? So, I opened it, started, and then proceeded to nod my head in acknowledgement and praise to the author. It was different, interesting and completely sucked me in. I never once felt annoyed or frustrated hashing over old topics. There wasn’t a time that I felt like it dragged, as I was completely engaged in the journey.

    moved at a pace that kept my adrenaline pumping. My eyes were peeled for the fae to reveal themselves. I hoped that my mind would be safe from a druid looking to take control. I knew my dragon was standing at my back and would risk his life if I was in danger.

    I really enjoyed getting to see Esther and Nikolai come together. They somehow work perfectly together even though they are very different. Esther is a little mentally battered and we see her try to take control and fix the damage to her memories. I hated seeing her suffer insecurity and doubt but loved that Nikolai showed her unconditional support and understanding when she needed it the most. Henry was playing “big brother” to the extreme and I thought his overreaction was making things even more stressful to Esther.

    just somehow felt different. I think it had a lot to do with the other parts of the story coming together. We’re finally getting some answers and seeing the leadership battles play out. Ulrik and his past connection with Nikolai show us a different side of a character that has been portrayed as a little psychotic and a lot angry. He was once a smart, caring and loyal dragon, who lead the Silver Dragons well. We get to see some of the hurt he suffered when he was turned away from Dreagan. To be honest, I liked seeing this side of Ulrik.

    Rhi has again taken an emotional kick to the heart. Balladyn’s love has been tested and I’m not sure he’s the same Fae anymore. His “love” for Rhi now seems like a *I love the idea of love* kind of love. Almost as silly as Henry’s lusty love for Rhi that he “thinks” is real. And, the one man we want to get his head out of his arse, well, I kind of get the impression that maybe (HUGE MAYBE) he’s opening his eyes.

    Talking about Con, geez he’s doing some fancy juggling at the moment. Yeah, sure, he’s King of Kings and a major control freak, but man, he really needs to learn to share the load a bit more. I’m worried that one of his balls will fall and it will have catastrophic results. I kind of get the impression he’s putting off looking further into his true feelings about Rhi until things settle down. Good luck with that Con.

    I haven’t read the whole series but what I have read, this is my favourite. The pacing was perfect, the storyline interesting and the connection between the main characters easy to see. The characters are multifaceted. A character that appears dark can have some light and the light may have some darkness waiting to break through. Evil isn’t always as evil as you imagined…the evil may just be coming from the person pushing from behind.

    I feel like #12 is the start of the end. All the pieces have been laid out and now it’s just a question of where and how they fit together. I feel like we must be getting close to Rhi and Con’s story? There is a Rhi and Con story, isn’t there? I hope there’s a Rhi and Con story, Donna? Pretty please with sugar on the top…I’m begging for Rhi and Con to be together forever story.

    Yeah, so I’m the idiot. Sue me. Actually, please don’t. Anyhoo, I would have given this book all five stars if I wasn’t a bit lost as I read it.

    Who is the smarty-pants who keeps picking up books that happen to take place in the middle of a series?

    Yeah, so I’m the idiot. Sue me. Actually, please don’t. Anyhoo, I would have given this book all five stars if I wasn’t a bit lost as I read it. I got the overall gist, however, I definitely wouldn’t recommend this as a standalone. Although it seems each book tackles a new couple, the background story and stories of the other characters continue in-line with the main story. Sounds confusing? Well, it was… a bit. But I enjoyed myself far too much to nitpick.

    Okay, so Nikolai, one of the Dragon Kings, goes on a mission with Esther, an MI5 agent and an ally, in order to help her find the druid who erased her memories. Along the way, their undeniable attraction gains momentum and becomes an unstoppable force. Luckily enough, neither of them were complaining. Amidst the love-making and overall love connection, these two came across some interesting facts and figures. Esther finds out some hard truths about herself, truths that could affect the world as they know it. There was a really amazing fight scene with the Dark Fae that I still can’t get out of my head. It was so exciting! However, we also gain some insight on the truth to what’s going on with Ulrik, Mikkel and the Druid.

    For someone who hasn’t read any of the previous books, even I’m completely invested in finding out how things will end. Will the Dark and Light Fae ever unite? What will Rhi do about Balladyn? And just who is Con destined to be with? I have so many more questions, but you know what I’m going to do in the meantime while I wait for the next book,

    to come out?

    Oh hell to the yes I’ll be going back to the beginning. Although this wasn’t as erotic as I thought it would be (slight bummer), it was no less intense and I thought it was incredible. I loved the inner workings of the Dragon Kings, how the other creatures of myth walk around humans, and the idea of these strong and fierce men finding their mates. How can I resist this delectable concoction? How can you?

    Don’t let the fact that this is the twelfth book in this series put you off reading it even if you haven’t read any of the others - it works well as a standalone.

    Don’t let the fact that this is the twelfth book in this series put you off reading it even if you haven’t read any of the others - it works well as a standalone. It tell s the story of Esther, who is missing some memories after her mind restored after having been taken over by a druid. She is an agent for MI5 and is searching for a dragon who she believes can help restore her memory. That dragon is Nikolai, a Dragon King who has preferred solitude for centuries, but once Esther asks for help he finds her irresistible and is determined to help, even if it means interacting with others again - including someone he once held in high esteem but fate drove a wedge between them, Can he help restore her memories? Can they resist their mutual attraction? What really happened to Ulrik - and can he help?

    This is a real page turner, once where the lyrics from the Johnny Nash classic -

    "There are more questions than answers

    And the more I find out the less I know,

    Yeah the more I find out the less I know."

    prove very true in this story! As they uncover more information, that information raises more questions and dilemmas - including trying to decide just who is on each side in the different factions. The background information is skilfully interwoven so new to the series readers or anyone who has missed any of the earlier novels can still relate to events in this story. I particularly liked how the author developed the relationship between the two main characters, not rushing things for them and showing how events impinged on their growing love. It is a highly entertaining paranormal romantic suspense that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who enjoys this genre or fancies giving it a try!

    I requested and received a copy of this novel. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

    Upon requesting this review courtesy of NetGalley (in exchanges for an honest review), i wasn’t aware that it was part of an ongoing series, let alone the twelfth book. It wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, as Grant was able to smoothly intergrate the ongoing storyline well with the new couple she focused on in this book.

    Upon requesting this review courtesy of NetGalley (in exchanges for an honest review), i wasn’t aware that it was part of an ongoing series, let alone the twelfth book. It wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, as Grant was able to smoothly intergrate the ongoing storyline well with the new couple she focused on in this book.

    Grant focuses each book on the formation of a separate couple and I feel that I may have been more invested in the way the relationship between Nikolai and Esther formed if I’d already read the previous 11 books. From just reading book 12, I found the pace of their relationship was quite quick; going from stares across rooms and drawing your past, to let’s stay in bed all day having sex because it’s raining, in the blink of an eye really did not do it for me at all. Though, I suppose it would have if I’d watched how the two were before their own feature book.

    And the sex. I’ve read a lot of romance, I have expectations in certain genres for what happens and Grant did not disappoint in delivering. If only the writing of it didn’t make me want to cringe every time I read it – I found myself skimming a lot of it because it sounded a bit underwhelming.

    I did enjoy the storyline though, particularly the incorporation of the series major storyline and subplots. Plot twists weren’t quite as jarring as a lot of other stories, but they didn’t really need to be in this book because things were always happening to make the story move forward.

    Despite initial confusion about character background and previous books, I did enjoy this book and will one day pick up the series from book 1. I think I might have appreciated a lot of the character development more if I’d done that in the first place.

    3.5/5

    I always wanted to read Donna Grant and I saw this on Read-now section of netgalley so I thought why not? Big mistake, it is #12 of a Dark Kings series and I red 10 pages and I got headache. There is so much back ground to the story, I can't figure out head and tail of the story. Not suitable for standalone.
