Firestorm by Donna Grant

 


The wait is over! The highly anticipated FIRESTORM, 
the tenth book in the DARK KINGS Series is now available! 

Firestorm
(Dark Kings Series, Bk #10)
by Donna Grant


Blurb:

SCORCHED BY DESIRE

Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a thousand-year-old secret.  But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absent-minded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire…

When Dr. Faith Reynolds stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears it comes from a dragon, she’s completely taken aback. A woman of science, there’s no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith’s curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She’s never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within?

Excerpt

Faith let her gaze slowly run up the tall man. He wore jeans that hugged his trim hips, and a thin, black, V-neck sweater that showed off every mouthwatering muscle that was honed to perfection.

His muscles weren’t so huge that they looked ugly. But they were big enough to be noticed—and appreciated.

And she couldn’t seem to stop appreciating them. Her gaze lingered on his thick chest, imagining her hands running over his pecs before sliding around his neck.

Her breath hitched as her blood heated. She unzipped her jacket to help cool herself. Then she looked up at his face. And what a face!

His wide, full lips softened the sharp lines of his jaw. Azure eyes framed with thick, black lashes watched her with a decided lack of interest. It was difficult to determine whether his hair was dark brown or black in the dim light of the cave.

But it was trimmed short with the top long enough to be parted to the side, the locks having a hint of wave to them.

She had a strange and overwhelming desire to run her hands through his hair and climb him.

Claim him.

Her knees threatened to buckle from the insane and decadent thoughts. The carnal longing swept through her shamelessly—and she embraced it.

Even as she feared it.

It took three attempts before she was able to have enough saliva to swallow.

“Who are you?” she demanded.

“The man who’s going to keep you safe,” came his harsh reply framed in a Scot’s brogue.

Her gaze shifted to Tamir. “Excuse me?”

Tamir laughed nervously. “Yeah, this is what I tried to tell you earlier. When I spoke with Ronnie, she suggested someone to help keep the crazies out. So she sent Dmitri.”

Faith looked at Muscles again and noticed his interest was squarely on the skeleton. Just as she was about to tell Tamir to send him away, she realized they could use someone to keep the loonies at bay.

Getting to her feet, she extended her hand to him. “Faith Reynolds.”

“Dmitri,” he replied and briefly shook her hand, letting go as if the contact between them irritated him.

She frowned and looked at Tamir before returning her gaze to Muscles. She fisted her hand to lessen the slight tingling across her skin from the contact with him. Again, she had the urge to touch him, stroke him.  “No last name?”

“None needed,” Muscles said. “Why this cave?”

“I’m sorry, what?”

“Why did you pick this cave out of all the hundreds on the isle?” he asked in a slightly lower pitch.

Faith’s hackles immediately rose, shoving the majority of her lust aside. She didn’t need to explain herself to anyone. So why she answered him, she’d never know. “I saw it from shore and wanted a look.”

“There are five more caves you could’ve seen from shore. Yet you chose this one.”

His blue eyes were penetrating, as if he were trying to see into her mind. She crossed her arms over her chest and lifted her chin. “I got lucky. If it hadn’t been this one, I would’ve moved on to another.”

“So you were looking for such a skeleton?”

Was that a hint of mockery in his tone? Oh, I don’t think so! “I’m an archeologist. I look for anything.”

“Do archeologists no’ have a specialty?”

“Some, yes. For its size, this island has been more intensively studied by archeologists than almost any other area in Scotland.”

“Is that so?”

She let her confidence show in her smile. “That’s right. Did you know evidence has been found here to suggest Fair may have been settled by Neolithic people up to five thousand years ago?”

“And you came to find more verification?”

“It’s what I do.” No one was more surprised than she when she’d found the large horn and a portion of the skull sticking out of the ground.

Review

This was a great read. It was the first of her books I have read. I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters and world Donna has created with this series. I plan to go back and read the rest of the series as well. It is definitely one to add to your TBR lists. You won’t be disappointed.

Umbrae by Debbie Manber Kupfer

umbraewrapevenbetter

Excerpt:

The streets of Safed were crowded with tourists and locals mingling, laughing, buying and selling. Scholars sitting in cafes, studying Kabballah or arguing about football or politics. Tourists taking photographs. Little boys in peyot and skullcaps kicking balls around, posing for photographs. Grown men with dark coats, black hats, and long beards in earnest conversation. Some hiding their faces from the tourists with the cameras.

As Miri walked she thought about the scene that she’d uncovered from the book. So that’s how it happened—how Omama had escaped from the Nazis. She wished she could talk to her, ask her all the questions that were burning inside her. Why had Omama kept her magic a secret from Miri through all the years she was growing up?

Miri had a few shekels in the pocket of her skirt. She walked up to a falafel stand.

“Hetzi falafel, bvakasha.”

She hoped she’d asked for half a falafel. Miri had learned a few words of Hebrew in the weeks she’d been in Israel. Not many though, not enough. Her thoughts strayed back to the book, the purple book with Argentum on the cover. She should go back and try to decode more of the words. But it was hard, so hard.

Hebrew was grueling. She’d flirted with French in Saul Emmanuel, but Hebrew was a different animal altogether. She stumbled over the unfamiliar characters in frustration. As a small child, reading English had come easy to her. She had devoured stories from an early age. Here everything was stilted and difficult. It frustrated her to pick up a newspaper and not just be able to scan the headlines. If she applied herself, she might be able to decipher a word or two.

As she reentered the Hakessem compound, a young girl greeted her. She was eleven years old and had her dark brown hair tied in two long braids. “How was your class with Abba, Miri?” she asked.

“It was good, Rifka, I was able to read the beginning of my book.”

“Will you read it to me?”

“Later, maybe.” Celia’s words seemed so personal. Now that she’d unlocked the first scene, she already felt she understood so much more. The Rabbi had said she could share the stories with Rifka, that in fact it was important to do so lest they be forgotten, but Miri wasn’t sure she was ready to share.

Book Release: Umbrae by Debbie Manber Kupfer

umbrae2

It’s alive! Today’s the day that book 3 of the P.A.W.S. Saga goes out into the world!

Step into the Shadows of Umbrae …

Miri’s world at P.A.W.S. in St. Louis is falling apart. First, Danny is accused of stealing her opapa’s charm. But before he can defend himself, he mysteriously disappears. Miri seeks Josh for help and advice, but he too has gone missing.

Then Lilith has a vision – Miri dragged away by wolves. Miri needs answers, answers that she feels sure are hidden in the blank pages of the book of Argentum.

With the help of Lilith, she travels to the ancient city of Safed. There, with the aid of a mystical rabbi and an outspoken werecat, her omama’s story is slowly revealed. And Miri uncovers something else, a world hidden deep beneath our own – the labyrinth of shadows also known as Umbrae.

Available in Kindle or Paperback

#IWSG: New projects

 

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

The last few weeks of February were busy in a good way. I have a couple of things I’m working on kind of behind the scenes you could say. I’ll fill everyone in another time about them when I have news to share. You could say they are my secret projects. 🙂

Writing on all the projects are going great. A little frustrated about one of the stories and how to work in a new plot twist. It sounds good when I talk about it out loud but putting it to paper and the section I want it to go in does not.

Question for everyone. I’m thinking about starting a facebook group. My question is would it be a good idea to have both a group and an author page? I already have an author page. Should I just stick to it or think about creating the group too?

IWSG Question: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?

I haven’t pulled out a really old story per say. What I did was to pull out a list of story ideas from a few years ago and look it over. I have set up files for three of them so I can start outlining them. One of them is possibly going to be posted here as a serial for the site. I just need to figure out how often I’ll post it and what the word count for each post will be.

That’s it for now. Look forward to your comments. 🙂
