Title: Night's Blaze
That one simple kiss slayed him as nothing in his very, very long life had ever done. It physically hurt him to release her and turn his back on everything she offered, but it was for the best.
A KING WHO WALKS IN DARKNESS
The Rhys who has existed for centuries is gone. Stripped of his ability to shift forms, Rhys can no longer embody the majestic, powerful dragon he was at birth. Cut off from his heritage by one of his own, this Dragon King must remain a man, haunted by demons who torment his every waking moment. The darkness would swallow him whole . . . except a woman so beautiful and haunted becomes the one beam of light in his world...
A DESIRE THAT WILL NOT BE DENIED
Lily Ross is taking the first step in building a new life for herself. Still reeling from a relationship that nearly broke her spirit, Lily is wary of her attraction to brawny, brooding Rhys. The passion burning so brightly between them is a potent temptation, but any entanglement is destined to end in disaster. Yet when a spectre from Lily’s past threatens their growing bond, Rhys is forced to choose with his heart, or lose this woman who has become his one chance at salvation.

The Dark Kings series is one of the few paranormal romance series that I am still following along with. I recently changed favorite genres to mix it up a bit. The Dragon Kings and their world is different enough to still have me fully engaged in their world. The combination of Kings, Warriors, Druids, and Fae keep me impatiently waiting for the next book and what Donna Grant has in store for these characters that I have been following for a while now.
Night’s Blaze brings readers Rhys and Lily’s story. They have both been present for a few books now and we’ve known where they were going it was just getting them there. Getting them to their happily ever after was an adventurous ride. Rhys is still dealing with the injury of the horrid after effects of the Dark and Dragon magic wound he received. Lily is still trying to hide her past in the past.
Things pick up there with Lily’s past barging into her life and making a total wreck of the semblance of life that she has created. The creep from her past is more than just a creep ex. He is evil incarnate and he has plans via his employer that involves Lily and Dreagan. Lily believing that there are only humans in the world has her going into this believing that there is no one to help her and she is alone in her fight.
The attraction that Rhys has for Lily is nearly stalkerish in his need to watch her. The watching just feeds his desires to have her in his life. She has changed him in more ways than she could ever know. It’s a good thing that she has someone like Rhys watching her though. He sees that there is something going on. The something affects all those at Dreagan and Lily. These are the things that Rhys values most in his very long life. He does the only thing there is to do and that is protect what is his.
I’m still loving this series. Donna introduces a couple of new characters. Many fans of the series like myself will get to have an ‘I knew it!’ moment. The deeper I get into this series the more I want to know about Rhi, Balladyn, and Ulrik. I definitely want to know more about the two new players, one of which happens to be a recently awoken King who seems to have some past ties to another character that has had a major role in the series. So now I go back to impatiently waiting for the next book in this very sexy magical series.
