About the Book

The Dark Kings soldier on in their fight to preserve their dragon magic. But eternal doom is always close behind…


His name is Laith. To most, he’s known as the owner of a local pub near Dreagan. But little do his patrons know that beneath his handsome, charming exterior Laith has the heart and soul of a Dragon King—one who wields control by keeping his friends close and his enemies, just across the border, closer. Until a mysterious stranger enters the picture, and sets his whole world off course…


Iona is a woman with a mission: To learn the truth about her dead father. She’s returned to Scotland only to learn that she’s part of an ancient pact with Dreagan—one that will threaten the fragile peace with the Dragon Kings. Gorgeous, sly Iona isn’t like anyone Laith has ever met before . . . and she harbors a secret that others would kill to possess. Will she complete him—or destroy him? Passion always comes with a price…  

5 I'm lovin' this series stars!*****

Hot Blooded is definitely one of my favorites in the Dark Kings series so far... and, the way it ended has me dying for the next book! Looks like Rhys and Lily are finally going to get their book... Can't wait... :))
It goes without saying that I love all of the dragon kings, but I particularly loved the pairing of Laith and Iona. She is such a strong female character. As a soldier and a traveling photographer, she lives simply and always on the road never setting down roots in any one place. And love, nope... she's not a fan of that concept.
She comes back to Scotland to re-connect with her father only to find out that he had died. Iona had an image of her father that turns out to be completely wrong as she gets to know all of the friends he left behind. What she doesn't know is that she has inherited a pact that has been handed down their bloodline for many generations. The land that she has inherited must be guarded and the kings have to find a way to ensure that the land stays in Campbell hands.
Laith has been put to the task of making sure Iona stays to take over the responsibility of the pact. When he meets Iona... well... let's just say the flames were lit!
Along with the blooming love story between Laith and Iona, we also get to see a new side of Rhi, the light fae. My heart went out to her so much. She is no longer the same fae that she was before she was tortured by the dark. It will be interesting to see how her character evolves from this point on... she is definitely more powerful than anyone realized.
Rhys, unfortunately, is not recovering well from the attack by the Dark fae in the last book. I was so sad for him. His injuries lead to something that every dragon king fears. But, perhaps he can lick his wounds a little in the next book where hopefully he will finally find his true mate.
And, of course, we are still awaiting the impending war with the Dark Fae and the undiscovered Dragon King who apparently is holding a grudge. Is it Ulrik?? I am not convinced... but, the author is doing a really good job of keeping us guessing.

Great series so far and I'm looking forward to more time with these hot and steamy dragon kings.
