Title: Breathing into Fire
For ten thousand years, the phoenix has tied its fate to that of the dragon. As each new firebird rises from the ashes, she’s mated to the last-born dragon, ensuring the latter’s continued existence and prosperity. Should the mating not occur, dragons will eventually cease to exist.
As the chosen dragon, Grayson Stephens is aware of his responsibility, but he doesn’t have to be happy about it. Giving up a life of sexy hook-ups with coeds is no easy task. But there are some benefits to marrying Gemini Toru. If history’s any indicator, she’s beautiful. She’s never been touched by another. She’s unspoiled, pure…
And much to Gray’s shock, she is also a he.
Despite an intense attraction to Gem, despite how good the firebird’s hands, lips and tongue feel on his body, Gray is uncertain he can consummate their bond publicly. But he must decide quickly—before someone takes the decision out of his hands, dooming dragons to extinction in the process.

What can be better than an awesome story about a hot dragon? Throw in a Phoenix. This story was so much fun!
First we have this legend about the last born dragon having to marry the Phoenix to maintain dragon kind. If this doesn’t happen, the dragons will die out. Okay, interesting legend but, some aren’t so excited about “arranged marriages” in this day and age. But well duty and honor and all that.
Now comes the really interesting twist that someone forgot, or neglected, to tell the dragon. This Phoenix happens to be male instead of female. Imagine showing up at your wedding, meeting your “bride” for the very first time, to learn that very important fact. Then you are not given time to process the information. You are expected to dance and make nice with this “he” that you thought was a “she”.
So begins the romance of Grayson Stephens – the dragon, and Gemini Toru – the Phoenix. Talk about your bumpy starts. And there is no pressure at all. “Extinction or dance? Dance or extinction?”
I like these two characters. If the so helpful friends and family had stayed out of things, they may have resolved issues so much faster. Oh, there is also some competition for Gemini’s hand. That throws a spanner in the works too.
I loved the conflict in this book. Just that key piece of information being omitted from Gray’s life. It was interesting watching him struggle with it, then come to terms.
You may think this sounds like just your basic romance, but hold your breath. There is also some killer action that is heart stopping. Oh no!
Don’t worry though. There is an absolutely lovely happy ever after! A very enjoyable read!
