Synopsis

He can’t escape the sins of his past…

Toxic to all those who touch him, dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation, a prisoner of the poison in his veins. But when a chance meeting with a woman challenges the belief he is destined to be alone, he pulls out all the stops, vowing to put the savagery of his past behind him and take a chance on love.

She doesn’t want to face her future…

Wanted by the Russian mob, creative accountant Evelyn Foxe isn’t looking for love. She searching for the fastest way to escape instead. When Venom offers to get her out of trouble, she accepts his help, but remains skeptical, afraid he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when someone unleashes a biological weapon in her hometown, and she gets caught in the firestorm, little choice remains—trust Venom to keep her safe or risk her life by going it alone.

My Review

I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review.


Venom, is a toxic dragon warrior, and has always felt isolated from others. His touch can be poison, especially to women. He has the capability to make them sick or even kill them if they are not his mate, the only one who is built to withstand his toxic touch. With his best friend, having recently found his mate, Venom feels more alone than ever. So feeling caged and needed to find some release, he goes in search of a woman, one with high energy to feed on. Evelyn Foxe had a prestigious career with many opportunities ahead of her. Until a scandal was released and she was put in the middle, and was blamed for it all. Now it’s been months since she has had a job, no one will hire her. Now with a threat from the Russian mob, her grandmother’s life at risk, she must find a way to get a large amount of money…and she can think of only one way, offer her body up. As much as the thought disgusts her she doesn’t have any choice, it is that or the only person who has ever loved will pay the price. But her first client, is not what she expected, a man with an aura of power and danger, but one with a gentle touch and patient manner. Venom and Evelyn, soon find that they are mates, but there is a rising danger to Dragonkind and their enemy is fierce….will they survive…
This series is just amazing, and if you love sexy dragon shifters…than this series is for you. Coreen Callahan writes stunning romances, and this series has had me since the first book. Most of the series up until now I have done through audiobook, so when I was given the chance to read this ARC, it was quite different reading it in book form verses the audio format. But I did enjoy it quite a bit, and we see all the previous players from previous books take a role in this story. This book pretty much takes off from where the last book ended. I would recommend reading this series in order, even though each book could be read as a stand-alone, you might get a bit confused on what is happening with certain circumstances.
The story sets off where we get these two meeting for the first time in a hotel room. Now I honestly had no idea what to expect with this scenario, but evidently I really enjoyed the twists and the way that these two connect together, and Venom oh he is my kind of hero. Such a romantic, and I loved how he wants to woo and court Evelyn instead of kidnapping her and taking her to his “lair” like his other brethren have done with their women. I loved how Venom treats Evelyn, from the very beginning, he is so patient and understanding, and with him being an Alpha male, Callahan does a tremendous job of balancing out his character. Evelyn is quite a strong willed heroine; I loved her from the beginning of the story. She stands up to Venom, and has her own special qualities, and I loved how she is willing to risk everything for someone she loves, even if she hates herself for doing it. She is such a charming heroine, and I grew to really like her from beginning to end. Their relationship is quite steamy, and boy can they set the room ablaze….you might want to bring a fire extinguisher with you as you read this one.
Overall a winning romance that had me from the beginning. A story of fated love, with burning passion, thrilling adventures, and a love story to endear you. HEART MELTING!

Synopsis
No warrior of the Nightfury pack is more complicated or damaged than Wick.

Scarred from a childhood of slavery and torture, Wick cannot bear the touch of another person. But all bets are off when he meets J.J. Solares. When she is unjustly imprisoned, Wick agrees to help rescue and keep her from harm. But Wick lives a life of self-imposed isolation and venturing into the world to seek justice for J.J. may be more than he can bear.

Brutalized by the harsh reality of prison, J.J thinks she is hallucinating when a majestic dark-haired god sweeps in to save her—and Wick is shaken to his core by the attraction he feels for J.J. But neither is out of harm’s way yet. When they find themselves at the center of a Dragonkind war, they are forced to make the ultimate choice—surrender to their fears or accept each other’s love.

My Review

Fury of Desire is Wick’s story…oh my beautiful Wick….love him to pieces. From the first book we see him as remote and quiet, but very fierce and scary at times. Wick has a horrible past, he has suffered tortured and he is the perfect match for J.J. because he undestands her in a way no one ever has. J.J. has been in jail for the past five years, for killing a man that was going to kill both her and her sister and she would do anything to protect her sister. When she gets injured Wick comes and rescues her but everything changes from the moment they first meet and Wick realizes that she could be his greatest hope to find peace and a chance to true love. This story is quite a tale of excitement and mystery and danger. There is plenty of dragon action and I loved seeing all my other favorite characters play a role in this story.  Fury of Desire is a thrilling tale of adventure, sexy shifter dragons, and a level of intensity it will put fog on your windows. SEXY AND PASSIONATE!!!

Synopsis
New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates – until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed – and bound by a love stronger than time.

With Mac, her safety from Ivar and the perils of the human world is assured, but still she is left with a terrible choice: forsake the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve and reclaim the life she loves, or abandon the man who now holds her heart.

My Review

Mac has recently joined the Dragonfury’s. He has just discovered that he is a shifter dragon, and a water dragon which is rare. Mac always knew that there was something more for his life than he ever thought possible. Now though, he is a newbie, and as such his pack is not letting him fight which is what he is aching to do. He craves a good fight but then he discovers that he has a mate and one that is in danger of being captured by the Razorbacks. Tania, is determined to save her sister, who is in prison for killing her boyfriend who planned on killing them both. After returning from seeing her, she finds her car thrown off a cliff, and she is put in a air bubble in the middle of the ocean. Tania would love to kill Mac when she gets her hands on him. But after saving her from the Razorbacks he takes her to their lair, and Tania is thrown into a world of danger and passion and the most tender love she has ever known.

Fury of Seduction is the third in the series, and I was able to get a hold of this one through Audible. I have really enjoyed listening to this series, and the Narrator does a great job in his inflections and portraying the story in a very real and genuine way. I do love the concept of a water dragon, and boy does he have some neat tricks up his sleeve. Even though he is new at being part of the Dragonfury’s, you see that he catches on super quickly, even so fast that it surprises his fellow brothers. I just adored Mac from the beginning, he is tough as nails and delicious enough to lick all over. He has power and has the tendency to be creative and he sets the stage for the story. Mac is aggressive and dominating at times, and even though there is a light level of bdsm elements involved in the story, its not too strong at all, and I started to enjoy that aspect. Tania is a tough heroine, she is willing to stand up to Mac and do what is right and I enjoyed seeing the varying depths of her personality that I felt matched up with Mac’s perfectly. The story line is intense and thick with danger and suspense and is never ending with tension and what a powerful love story this author delivers!!!

Synopsis

Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

Now a guest of the Nightfury clan, Angela regains her strength as her rescuer, Rikar, the last living frost dragon, gradually breaks down her mistrust. Surrendering to her desire for Rikar, but still uncertain of her feelings, Angela goes against his wishes and agrees to be used as bait to lure Lothair into the open. As the battle commences, the true struggle comes from within: Will Angela return home to the life she loves, or forsake it all to be with Rikar?

My Review

Fury of Ice is the second book in the dragonfury series by Coreeen Callahan. I was able to obtain this through Audible, and since I have a love for audiobooks, I knew I had to get this through an audiobook. I do love a steamy shifter romance, but when you put dragons in the mix, the heat level on rises…mmm deliciousness in one book, who can resist??? Fury of Ice is Rikar’s story, we continue on from the last book, where Angela ends up being kidnapped by dragons with a evil agenda. Angela is a police officer, and is tough as nails, but being forced to feed the Razorback, Lothaire.. Angela’s strength is almost depleted, when a chance to escape opens up and she barely escapes with the help of Rikar coming to her rescue. Rikar and Angela are mates, and Angela is suffered from a form of PTSD, and Rikar is her anchor. With danger surrounding them, will Angela and Rikar be able to form the mating bond without losing one another to the enemy?

Fury of Ice is a fantastic shifter romance, and I do love dragons. They are so passionate and fierce, and I totally take it in for all its worth. After reading the first one, I have been waiting to read Rikar and Angela’s story. Even though I am not huge on the battle ready heroines, I really admired Angela, she was a very endearing characters, that instantly pulled at my heartstrings. From the beginning of the story you see how much that she has suffered at the hands of Lothaire, and I admire her courage and stubbornness to survive, she never gives up. Rikar is not going to give up on Angela, no matter what. Rikar is quite a swoon worthy hero, I would trade places with Angela any time. Rikar is a warrior, second in command, and definitely has the Alpha Male routine going on, but there are times where you love the way he is with Angela. He gives her room to breathe and make decisions for herself and tries not to push her too hard. I enjoyed seeing these two together, and what chemistry!! I thought my room would turn into flames, with that these two characters were dishing out. We do see a sub plot, with Angela’s partner who ends up being a fledgling water dragon (way cool right?), and the circumstances of his future mate which was a good start for the next book which is their story.

A suspenseful plot, that is packed with action, sexy dragon shifters, tender romance and a story to bring a tear or two to your eyes, and barks of laughter at other times. A story full of everything that makes a paranormal romance, Brilliantly well done…worth every penny!! Fully recommended.

When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die.

My Review

 
Fury Of Fire is the first installment in the series, and I was able to get from Audible. I found that Fury of Fire was a well done audiobook. This is the first time that I have read from this author, and I just randomly decided to try this one out after I had read the blurb. I have always had a weakness for dragon shifters, there is something so majestic and intense about them, and after listening to Fire of Fury. The way the story begins fires away instantly, there is no taking a few chapters to get into the story. There is quite a bit of intense emotions and suspense scenes in the first chapter, and the reader is thrown into a story of a world to completely draw you in, and capture your attention, near impossible to put this one down. I was  disappointed when this one ended.

The story begins when Myst end up thrown in a world of danger and dragon shifters when her friend is pregnant with a dragon shifter, and dies in the process, and Mist ends up saving the infant’s life, and then she meets  Bastian who saves her life from enemy dragons they are at war with. Bastian is the leader of his kind, and is fight a war to save his people. He knows with their numbers dwindling he will have to mate soon. The problem is once his mate gives birth she dies from the trauma of it, and he would have to raise his child alone. When he meets Myst, his life gets changed around, and this woman becomes his world. There is a instant attraction between the two, but Myst doesn’t admit her feelings for Bastian when he practically kidnaps her to his lair; which is practically a palace. Bastian can never let Myst go, and he must prove to her that she is his and he would never let her go.

Overall I fell in love with Bastian and Myst, and most especially this world that has been created. The relationship between the two is priceless and very emotionally driven at times. I couldn’t help but feel for this couple, there is quite a bit of a danger element as well, the level of intensity rises with each chapter, and the reader will feel like your on a roller coaster, but what a fantastic ride you are on!! Thrilling, passionate, vividly real, and tenderly poignant. A REMARKABLE GEM!!!
