Dark Craving

Fueled by ancient magic—and enflamed by human desire—the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love…with a mortal woman.

Night’s Awakening

The dark immortal warriors were never meant to experience human desire. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shape-shifting warriors, meets Elena—a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core—all bets are off…

Dawn’s Desire

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands to risk his life for the dragons within—and resist the temptations of human love.

Passion’s Claim

Banan has been waiting for centuries for someone like Jane. Guy knew it was love at first sight with Elena. Can two Dragon Kings commit to two immortal women for eternity? Or does fate have something else in store?

My Thoughts:

There just aren’t enough Dragon stories out there in the paranormal universe, but Ms. Grant is rectifying that quickly! This is a combination of three previously released novellas from 2012. Her reasoning for the anthology is to re-introduce her series Dragon Kings, which will have three full-length e-books coming out this year, and they look to be extraordinary! The back-story she has created for this cast of Dragon Kings is pretty unique, and I hope she delves into it much further in the books yet to come.

These stories are quick and romantic, and just different enough to give the reader a good perspective of what its been like for the Kings since being betrayed by one of their own many centuries ago.  The women in these novellas are easy to connect with and the Kings are easy to admire and quickly fall for.  I thoroughly enjoyed this introduction and can’t wait to learn more about this new series!
