“ARC was given for an honest review”
Every inch of him was molded as if from granite…and her blood ran like fire…
For centuries, V has waited to awaken from his doomed sleep and reclaim his destiny. But this Dragon King – one among a legion of legendary warriors sworn to protect the human race from darkness – must first find a way to win back his sword. Wield its power. And try not to fall prey to his own illicit desires.
Claire may possess the beauty and soul of a goddess but V knows better than to mess with a mere mortal. Still, he instinctively knows that Claire is The One who can help him regain the use of his sword and restore his place at Dreagan. But if she learns the truth about who – and what – he really is, her memories of him would be erased forever. How can V love Claire truly, madly, deeply…and protect her from the forces of fire and darkness that could destroy them both?
Dating sucks. Being alone sucks. What is a woman to do when all options…well, suck the big one?
I’ve already read some of the books in this series so already have some background to the overall arc of the story. This book can be read as a stand-alone book. Grant does go through some of the overall arc in every one of her books with speed. It’s really great if it’s the first time reading the series but can become a bit much when you’ve read a few of her books.
V and Claire were the couple for this book and of course as much as V was in some sort of love hibernation the minute, he sees Claire he breaks it. Claire has had a string of bad luck on relationships but that was the end of them when she meets V. As much as I love the hot steamy sex scenes and all the passion and romance this relationship fell short for me and that the way that it was played out it was a little repetitive. With that said I still enjoyed reading it and hope that the next book would be better. Happy reading!
