Descrizione

Nikolai is a dragon shapeshifter who knows well the meaning of loss. Orphaned and raised to be a Dragon King, he never accepts defeat. Now, Nikolai prefers his solitude . . . until a beautiful, irresistible woman calls upon him for help—and Nikolai's whole world goes up in flames.

Ever since MI5 agent Esther woke to discover her mind taken over with magic, she feels like a stranger to herself. She looks to a notorious dragon, one who has the power to help her find her memory. But as she and Nikolai come closer to discovering what really happened to her, a dangerous passion ignites between them. Can this lone Dragon King help the woman he's grown to love to uncover the truth about her past—or will a deep and fiery danger tear them both apart?

    I received a free E-galley of Heat from St. Martin's Paperback to review and I am very thankful for the opportunity to read Donna Grant's book. I have not read any of the previous books in the series. It is totally something that I would be interested in reading, and I am definitely adding them to my "need to pick up" list. I will say that this book is very busy and I wouldn't recommend picking it up alone. You can read it as a stand-alone, I did, but you miss a lot of the family connections that you are supposed to be feeling amongst everyone. This is totally a series that you could easily eat up. It reminds me of Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series, except with dragon kings, druids, and the fae.Without reading the previous books you miss all the intricacies in the relationships. You get a few references to previous events and a few other characters pop up here and there, but you don't feel any connection to them. If you had read the 11 books prior it would totally be different. You would know what Nikolai was like before the book, where it feels like when you start they're already in love with each other. Stuff like that. It isn't bad at all though. This is a great way to get yourself connected to the world and then continue from here on out. I think you would be able to get a good feel for the rest of the stories progression and want to continue.Esther is a fun character in this book. She is haunted by the fact she doesn't remember events in her life since her memory has been erased. That's where you pick up, so you have to piece what's been going on from there. You make this discovery that she is a part of this magical world with Dragon shifters and the fae in more ways than one. Once her issues are resolved the book really comes together in a sweet way. I feel like Esther and Nikolai's connection was a fun and sweet one. After that, I was invested in Esther's character. I liked who she was after everything she has gone through, and I didn't even know half of what she went through because it was written earlier in the series. That just makes me more interested in the series.I went with a 4-star rating because I think whether you have or haven't read the earlier books the characters are interesting and all the different side plots are interesting enough that it felt worthy of a four star.

    When I started to read Heat, I was expecting a continuation of the overarching plot involving Ulrik, as well as the drama between Usaeil and Con, with a little loving between Nikolai and Esther. Well I got all that and more! There was a definite romance element between Nikolai and Esther but that was more of a natural progression that was based on mutual attraction, not an all-encompassing need to consume each other with a fiery passion. What really got me all sorts of excited about Heat was that secrets were being revealed!I will admit that I did not start the Dark Kings series until a few books ago but I certainly picked up enough to understand that there was quite the rift between Ulrik and the other Dragon Kings. Ulrik has always been painted as the bad Dragon King that was on a mission of destruction but in Heat Nikolai revealed another side to Ulrik that had been spoken of before but not to this level. I will admit that my feelings for the rogue silver dragon have changed a bit and I am hopeful that maybe some bridges that had been burned can possible be repaired somehow.There was a giant reveal concerning Esther and her brother Henry that no one expected. As Esther and Nikolai were in London trying to hunt down some answers to the memories that Esther was missing after the Druid had messed with her mind, they stumbled upon some information that lead Esther to unlocking a mystery within her own mind. The information that was discovered was groundbreaking in the druid world and even though what was revealed seemed impossible to the druids, it was first confirmed through Esther’s brother Henry because he also had a memory that was triggered and later by a druid who could sense truth versus lies. Very exciting stuff!In the world of the Fae there was also a shift, for both light and dark, as there were revelations that brought about confrontations that in some cases were deadly. No matter what, things were never going to be the same in the dark fae kingdom. There were also some changes between Balladyn and Rhi that I did not see coming. Man, I just want Rhi to be happy and for someone to really appreciate her! I don’t know how I feel about Balladyn or these changes. It has definitely made me question Balladyn’s “love” for Rhi and speaking of love for Rhi, I am hoping that maybe a certain Dragon King will wake up and smell the coffee.There was so much taking place in Heat and it was a fantastic read. The pacing was great, the plot and subplots were tied together in a seamless fashion. My feelings on certain characters grew and changed in some cases. I really feel like we are coming to a point where there are going to be lots of answers coming in the next installments in this series and that some long awaited confrontations are going to be taking place. I am thoroughly excited about where this series is going! I will say that the romance between Nikolai and Esther was sweet and Nikolai definitely grabbed my interest with his quiet demeanor, artistic ways, and the desire he exudes for Esther, very sexy. Overall, Heat has inflamed my expectations for what is to come and I cannot wait!!This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
