(Dark Kings Series, #7)
by Donna Grant
He consumed her with that kiss, leaving no question that whatever was happening between them was meant to be—that it had always been meant to be…
HE LOVES FOR ETERNITY
Thorn is the bad boy of the Dragon Kings, a gorgeous, reckless warrior whose passions run wild and fury knows no bounds. When he sees the brave, beautiful Lexi being lured into the Dark Fae’s trap, he has no choice but to rescue her from a fate worse than death. But by saving this tempting mortal, he exposes himself to his fiercest enemy—and darkest desires. As the war between Dragons and Fae heats up, so does the passion between Lexi and Thorn. And when love is a battlefield, the heart takes no prisoners…
SHE LIVES FOR VENGEANCE
Lexi is on a mission of justice. Every day, she searches for the monster who murdered her friend. Every night, she hides in the shadows and plots her revenge. But the man she seeks is more dangerous than she ever imagined. He is one of the Dark Fae who preys on human life, who uses his unearthly power to seduce the innocent, and who is setting a trap just for her. Nothing can save Lexi from a creature like this—except the one man who’s been watching her every move…

I love this series! Have from the very first book. While each individual book is about a particular couple, the overall arc of the storyline moves forward beautifully. Each story driving and adds mystery and intrigue to the classic ‘who done it’ as well as ‘who is it?’ on two different aspect. Donna has mastered keeping her readers on their toes and wanting more! With this said, you can pick up PASSION IGNITES and read it as a standalone, however, I think, no, I know this is the sort of book that will leave you running straight to Amazon or your favorite book vendor and buying the previous installments to catch up on the series.
PASSION IGNITES picks up right where we left off with SOUL SCORCHED (bk #6) (something else that I’m really enjoying is the lack of time jumping between the books) and we get to learn more about Thorn. He is 100% committed to killing the Dark Faes and the more the better!
Lexi is one strong woman who in the mist of losing one of her best friends while on vacation, finds herself in the middle of a war she had no idea was going on. She knows those with red eyes are the bad guys, but has no idea who or what they are. Yet, she knows it was them who killed her best friend and she will avenge her. She has absolutely no idea how much in danger she truly is until one night Thorn has to step in and save her. However, this is no damsel in distress. Again, she’s strong and independent; when circumstances beyond her control force her to rely on Thorn for help, sparks will fly. Even if Thorn tries his hardest to put space between the two of them to avoid what is obvious already there.
One of the things I love about this series is that we get to still see the previous couples we’ve gotten to know from the previous books. They all still interact with each and are part of the story. It makes sense that they do because they are part of the family! However, I think this is something that sometimes we as readers miss in other series when we fall in love with certain characters/couples and the series tends to move on. I’m extremely happy this isn’t the case with the DARK KINGS Series! It must be said that with these glimpses and interactions from the previous couples, that if you haven’t read the previous books, you won’t be lost at all. Donna does a phenomenal job with letting the read know who everyone is without retelling the whole story for those of us that have read them.
Loved everything about PASSION IGNITES! Cannot wait for the next installment and Donna is driving me freaking crazy trying to figure out who Rhi’s Dragon King is… I think I know, but man… again, Donna does such a great job with keeping up the mystery that you second guess yourself!!!
