Soul Scorched (Dark Kings #6) by Donna Grant
Synopsis:Darcy was floating on a cloud of pure passion. Everywhere he touched, Warrick was leaving a mark on her, forever changing her. She could feel it through her skin and muscle, through bone and into her soul. It was as if he was changing her. And she welcomed it…
Her power is a blessing.
Born on the Isle of Skye, Darcy is a beautiful woman of many gifts. Fortune-telling is her forte, and she remains the only Druid who could unlock the secrets—and desires—of a Dragon King. His name is Warrick. And now that Darcy’s seen into his dragon heart, nothing will ever be the same…
His passion is a curse.
Warrick never intended to put Darcy in harm’s way. But ever since she revealed a shocking truth, Darcy has been hunted by the Dark Fae, who want to use her powers for their own evil purposes. Now it’s up to Warrick to do whatever it takes to keep the woman who sets his soul on fire safe. But protecting Darcy means putting himself—and his entire race—in jeopardy. Is his desperate longing for one woman worth the risk of losing everything… for eternity?
Review: Donna Grant really knows how to tell a story. They are always filled with passion, tense emotional moments, heartache (that is always rectified), and adventure. Book 6 in the Dark Kings series is no different, it has all of those attributes and more. Warrick was a fun character, the loner who hated to talk to people, but is fascinated about all things human, opens up and finds that there is one person he does like to spend time with and talk to, Darcy. Darcy is a Druid who can touch Dragon Magic, and she releases some of Ulrics magic. Their story has a lot of passion, adventure, and a battle between the Dark and Warrick. I enjoyed this installment, as I do all of the others, though I think I would have to say that Rhys and Lily are still my favorite couple. Now I just have to wait for the next installment to be released 😦
Favorite Quote: This scene isn’t romantic, but if you read the series you will find it cute. I call it “I Think I Envy Her”
“You know her well, don’t you?” Darcy asked.
Warrick cast a quick glance at Rhi. “Aye. She’s helped us out on many occasions. The Dark kidnapped a King and his woman. If it hadn’t been for Rhi, the mortal would’ve died, and Kellan would still be held by the Dark.”
“Wow.” Darcy peered around Warrick’s shoulder to look at Rhi. She was dressed like a woman who loved clothes, and who knew what looked good on her. Darcy wished she could look that good in anything she put on, but the thought of Rhi being a warrior was what really made Darcy smile. “So she’s not just a pretty face.”
“Rhi is part of the Queen’s Guard. It’s an honor few get, and it shows what kind of warrior she is to have achieved such a distinction.”
“I think I envy her.”
“For the love of all that’s holy,” he whispered, casting a furtive look over his shoulder. “Donna tell her that.”
