I decided that since I am reading all of these books, It might be fun to do book reviews. Now don't worry, I am not the type of girl who spoils the book for everyone. So I promise not to reveal too much about the books just in case you end up reading them.
This first book review is about Kiss of Fire by Deborah Cooke. It is one that found at a local bookstore in the Paranormal Romance section. LOL Since it is a "romance" novel there are some very explicit parts in this book. - You've been warned.
"When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind - or about to lose her heart.
Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything - even Sara's love - to fulfill their entwined fates."
As usual, this book took me forever to read, simply because I'm like that little dog who can't stay focused. I end up finding another book that is prettier, shinier, and must be read. So I end up reading multiple books at the same time. Also, this book was lost in my room for a while - it was hiding from me. lol
I will admit this book was not all that I had expected, and definitely wasn't like some of the other "Paranormal Romance" books that I've read. It did have a very good story-line and I really enjoyed learning about the Pyr lore that was told throughout the story.
In the book, Sara discovers that she is destined for far greater things than simply running her deceased aunt's book store. Her aunt even helps her realize this by making books fall to give her clues, and making sure the tarot cards end up at the top of Sara's purse. Quinn is a traveling blacksmith who just happens to have the ability to turn into a dragon and feels drawn to Sara in every way possible. He fights for what he believes is right all while trying to mend his broken heart from someone he lost in the past.
This book was hard for me to get into at first, but in the end it was a great story of love, learning how to trust after not having trusted anyone for a very long time, fighting for what is right, and discovering the power of fate and destiny.
If you're not into romance novels or anything explicit, this book is not for you. lol But if you are and like a little bit of fantasy to go with that. It was a good read. :)
