Smoldering Hunger (Dark Kings #8) by Donna Grant
Synopsis: TEMPTING FATE
Darius is back. Edinburg thought it had seen the last of this seductive Dragon King, but that was before Darius found something worthwhile. He just can’t stay away from the impossibly beautiful Dr. Sophie Martin-even though he knows that a passion this strong could prove detrimental…for them both.
Sophie tried to forget her encounter with smoking-hot Darius to no avail. He’s in her dreams, tempting her. But her association with Darius catches the attention of another, putting her
in mortal danger. . .and Darius, who has vowed to protect her, is her only hope. But can she trust the notorious dragon shapeshifter? The only thing she knows for sure is that she cannot resist him…
Review: Donna Grant always knows how to please the reader. Her characters are fascinating and well developed, and her plot and conflict is always riveting and enjoyable. This installment of the Dark Kings was passion filled from page one, literally. Sophie and Darius are intensely attracted to each other and they can’t be in the same room without touching and kissing each other. I enjoyed the story and the conflict with Ulric and the Dark is heating up. The Reapers are making more of an appearance and Rhi and Balladyn’s relationship takes a new turn. Grant teased the reader with whom Rhi’s Dragon King might be, but a name is never revealed (tease!). The cliffhanger at the end was a nice surprise and hopefully is a good omen. I’m not sure who I want Rhi to end up with though; her King, Balladyn, or her Reaper watcher. I look forward to seeing what is in store next.
