*Dark Heat by Donna Grant


4 stars****

This story originally came out in three novellas and this book is a way to get them all at once. And, the author has added a bonus story... so, that makes this book a bit longer than most but at least you get the whole thing! :)
Each of these novellas is about a Dragon King and the woman they fall in love with. I won't go into detail about each one... the blurb pretty much says it all.
I highly recommend that you read this book before reading the new novellas/book coming out soon called Darkest Flame. I'm currently reading those novellas as they are released and there are gaps and places where I felt like I was missing out on something that had already happened. Which is why I stopped to read this... :)
Because these are all short stories things can seem a bit rushed and there is not as much attention to detail which makes these fast and easy reads. I really like all of these characters and it was fun watching these powerful dragon kings succumb to love. Especially when they didn't think it was possible.
So, if you're into hot, steamy, strong and powerful Dragon shifters I highly recommend this series... I enjoyed it...

The Dark Kings are sworn to defend an ancient legacy of dragon magic. But their fiercest challenge lies in the modern world, where a woman’s love conquers all. These are their stories.

This book contains the first 3 Dark Kings prequels + a bonus story, "Passion's Claim":

"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?
