She is unprepared for the blazing passion between them or the truth he exposes. But as her world begins to unravel, she realizes the only one she can depend on is the very one destroying everything – a Dragon King.What I Liked:I don't read too many novellas because they're often way too short, but I've read several from the 1,001 Dark Nights collections, and I've enjoyed all of them. The idea behind 1,001 Dark Nights is fantastic and I'm sure all of the novellas that have been published so far have been excellent. Dragon Burn is no exception! I adored Sebastian and Gianna's story. Sebastian, a powerful Dragon King, is in Venice to find information about a man who might be framing Ulrik (Sebastian's friend and fellow Dragon King) for terrible deeds. Ulrik hasn't been found in a long time, and the man in Venice is as mysterious as they come. Sebastian is fairly certain he has located the man, and he is going to get close to the man's personal assistant to find out. But seducing Gianna backfires when Sebastian realizes that he doesn't want to use her - he simply wants her, no matter his reasons for being in Venice. When his search puts her life in danger, Sebastian must choose what is more important to him - justice for Ulrik, or the fiery woman who is definitely his Ice Queen. But what if he can have both?I'm kind of a sucker for paranormal/fantasy romance novels involving a non-human male and a human female. It's not quite the same for me when the roles are reversed, for some reason. I love the dynamic that the non-human male/human female trope has on a story. And it works so well, in Dragon Burn. Sebastian is a powerful immortal Dragon King, thrown off his game by a mortal human he set out to seduce. Gianna is a tough workaholic whose ex-husband described as boring. The two of them fit together so well.Sebastian has to make some top ten book boyfriend lists. He is so dreamy! He's Scottish and he's a sweetheart with nice manners. Did I mention how much I love powerful non-human males in paranormal romance? Especially an alpha? Sebastian is a Dragon King, and he has been around for a while. He is clever and smart, charming and lethal. Did I also mention powerful and sexy? While I loved the length of this novella, I feel like there should be a full-length novel for Sebastian (and Gianna). I wouldn't mind seeing more of his story!Gianna is perfect for Sebastian (just like he is perfect for her). She is a hard worker and a loyal woman. Not once was she ever afraid of Sebastian, even when she found out what he was. She trusted her instincts and followed her heart, but she also used her brain and didn't jump to conclusions or run before hearing explanations. Smart girl. I liked her a lot! The two of them together are straight fire. Grant cooks up such great chemistry. Gianna may think of herself as a cold workaholic, but being with Sebastian proves that she is just as passionate as he is. I loved watching them ignite. But it's not just lust and sexy times - they fall for each other with each passing page. It's adorable, really. He tries not to care for her because he doesn't want her involved. But their feelings couldn't be stopped!Also worth mentioning - I've not read any of the books in this series, nor have I read any of Grant's other books. I was confused when "Ice Queen" was brought up. I thought Gianna was also a non-human, but she isn't. From what I understand, "Ice Queen" is the Dragon King's chosen mate, and Sebastian calls her that time after time. But she is human!This novella didn't feel too short like most novellas do, which I appreciated. There is a lot of swoony and sexy romance, but there is plenty of action too. This book involves a lot of dragons, fae, and even a Druid. It's an exciting story, right up until the end. The ending itself is lovely. What I Did Not Like:While this novella was a great length, of course I wouldn't have minded more! More sexy times too. But alas, therein lies the rub - this is a novella! Again, this novella didn't feel rushed or too short. But I would have loved more!Would I Recommend It:Any fan of Donna Grant should read this novella - it is definitely worth it. I often think that novellas are a waste of time because they are so short and might not add much to the series - but this novella is a standalone story and it is so fantastic. Adult PNR fans, this novella is wonderful! I might go as far as to recommend the series in general, but this is the only story of the series that I've read. But I may check them out! At the very least, the other two 1,001 Dark Nights novellas Grant has written.Rating:4.5 stars. I loved Sebastian and Gianna's story, and I definitely want more! I'm going to check out the series. Maybe future books, in hopes of catching a glimpse of Sebastian/Gianna cameos. It would be nice!

    Dragon Burn is a quick and short novella.I read the prequels #0.1, #0.2, & #0.3 several years ago, but never got back to reading the others in the series. I knew from those two books that something was going on, but not fully what. My understanding from Dragon Burn is that their is a Dragon trying to expose the Dragons to humans, but the other Dragons don’t want this, so their is a war going on.Sebastian is one of the Dragon Kings who is looking for information on one of his brother Dragon K Dragon Burn is a quick and short novella.I read the prequels #0.1, #0.2, & #0.3 several years ago, but never got back to reading the others in the series.

The romance is quick and insta-love. The chemistry is fiery. Theirs danger, trust issues, magic, ulterior motives, and a mystery on who is trying to expose the Dragons. I enjoyed Dragon Burn though I might have enjoyed it more if I had read more books in the series. Rated: 3 Stars*Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Donna Grant via InkSlinger PR with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    3.5 starsOnce upon a time I read the very first novella in this series and liked it. I even added the first full length book to my TBR. And then my book ADD must have kicked in because I didn't read it. Or any of the following books or novellas, but decided to jump on in there for book eleven and a half. What was I thinking? Evidently there is a WHOLE PLOT for the series and I have missed it all. Could I follow along? Sure. Would I have liked it more if I read the other stuff first?

Am I kicking myself for not reading the other books yet? Oh, yes I am.The action was amazing when we got to the showdown between Sebastian and Mikkel. The setting was awesome for the whole book...it helped with the romance and mystery of Sebastian and Gianna and what was going on with them. I'm interested to see what will happen to them because of what went down in here. Not to mention, the whole reason Sebastian was in Venice in the first place or what happened to the Light Fae at the end. *thanks to Social Butterfly PR for sharing a copy of this with me*

    4 1/2 starsI love the name Sebastian and I'm in a HUGE paranormal mood lately. It 's all I want to read.That said, I loved this book. No, I hadn't read anything from this series beforehand. But I've since fixed that oversight. I've devoured the group of novellas called Dark Heat and book one, Darkest Flame. I've bought the first 5 books and will be devouring them in order. That's what this book did to me.Okay, I love dragons. I love strong women who bring strong men to their knees.

What is going on in this world where dragons are not know but actually belonged here before humans. Why are they fighting another dragon? Why do they protect humans? Why do they hide who they are? The characters are well written with lots of depth. Sebastian is determined to help an old friend that he feels he let down. He goes against his king to try to gain information only to fall for the love of a woman. Gianna is doing her own kind of hiding after a bad divorce. Sebastian brings her back to herself. They are right for each other.The story is fast paced and full of yummy moments. It's also full of danger and mysteries that the Kings have been facing and still need to figure out. It definitely had me wanting more.If you haven't fallen into this series yet and you enjoy the paranormal side of romance, then get on this series and quick!

    Time for my review, and please excuse me if I go on a fangirl rant!  In my mind, I recognize that this is a novella, and those really don't do much to move major story arc's along.

They are mostly based on the couple in the story. However, I am a big fan of this series whole story arc so I was loving that Dragon Burn revealed as much and gave as much time to it.Sebastian and Gianna were great. Their romance was a whirlwind, and there was a point where I thought that Donna Grant was going to rip my heart out. I really did. Sebastian causes such great changes in Gianna and it is great to see her break out of her shell and develop throughout the story. She breaks out of her solitude life into this great, independent and determined character. What she was willing to sacrifice was amazing.I was surprised with Sebastian's character. His take on the war and who was behind it was SO what I had been wanting the Dragon Kings to see. He is out to prove there is more to the acts of war than what they have all been thinking. I think I wanted to cheer when I read his outlook on the whole thing. I've been waiting for someone to figure this out. I was SO excited!I can't ruin it by slipping in spoilers in here, but I was pretty frustrated at the end. I know I'm too into a series when I try to give my kindle a talking to and explain how I think that story should have ended! Dragon Burn had me on an emotional roller coaster and had me daydreaming about what was happening often. It could definitely be read on it's own considering Sebastian is not a big character yet, and what happens to the story at the end. What I recommend though, is that you grab this series and delve into this world of hot dragons and all the baggage that comes with being a dragon in today's world. Just take a look at this video if you doubt me!    Grab your copy of DRAGON BURN today! Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon Canada | Amazon AU Download the Free Kindle App   Here's a quick look at what to expect in Dragon Burn! Seduction can come upon you like a whisper, brushing against your skin with a subtle promise. It can surround you like warm velvet, its caress provocative and tempting. It can blitz you, overwhelming your senses until there is only one thought—him.Gianna didn’t know when, she didn’t know how, but Sebastian’s seduction had flooded her like the wispy fingers of mist before effortlessly besieging with the skill of a warlord.Ever since she found herself in his arms the night before, she hadn’t been able to get him out of her mind. Not even work could shove him aside.She’d passed the night weighing his offer of spending the day with him. She waffled back and forth until she finally dozed off. When she woke and got into the shower, she still hadn’t come to a decision.As she’d left her home that morning, she’d told herself she was going for coffee. And ended up at the Piazza San Marco.With him.She’d seen him long before he noticed her. It gave her a chance to study him at leisure. He wore black slacks and a button-down in a purple so deep in color it was almost black. The black leather jacket sat upon his wide shoulders like an afterthought instead of a necessity.The breeze was gentle, ruffling the ends of his golden brown hair that swept atop his shoulders. He studied the architecture around him, not with wonder, but...almost as if it was intruding.Not once did he appear to notice any of the women who endeavored to capture his attention. Yet he looked down and smiled at the pigeons who came close to him. And he gazed at children with a kind of amazement, like he wasn’t sure what to think of them, but he couldn’t look away.Like she couldn’t stop staring at him.Then he turned and locked eyes with her. Her heart had actually tripped over itself. Not once in her life had she ever experienced such a reaction to anything. Chills raced over her body that had nothing to do with the cool temperatures and everything to do with the enigmatic, baffling man who held her utterly spellbound.His smile was both sensual and secretive. She didn’t remember what he said after he walked to her. It had been a question, and she’d agreed. The next thing she knew, they were having coffee.To say she was shocked to find herself talking so readily to him was an understatement. What was it about him that made her feel comfortable? Relaxed, even?As they walked from the café, his hand rested on the small of her back. The pressure of his palm against her was so profound that, for a moment, she wondered if she had on clothes, because it felt as if he were touching her skin. This review was originally posted on Rantings of a Reading Addict

    Donna Grant returns to the Dark Kings world with this novella about Sebastian and Gianna. First off, when I first started this book, I immediately wished it was a full-length novel. Bast is such a great hero that I really wished we could have more of his character. I love that he was worried about his friend in the beginning for falling for a human, but ultimately fell for someone like Gianna.Gianna was also a character that I found interesting. The thing with Donna Grant’s characters are that Donna Grant returns to the Dark Kings world with this novella about Sebastian and Gianna.

I love that he was worried about his friend in the beginning for falling for a human, but ultimately fell for someone like Gianna.Gianna was also a character that I found interesting. The thing with Donna Grant’s characters are that they are all very calm and steady. While that may seem boring to some, I find it comforting. You really get the sense that they are comfortable with themselves even if they are having a hard time. This makes the romance that much more believable because it becomes about two people will are together because they love and care about each other and because they need the other in order to survive.Another thing that I really enjoyed about this book is the setting. Set in Italy, you really get the vibe of being there and I love how the setting connected with Gianna’s character. It really brought her to life. Once again, Grant did an amazing job with this story. I will continue to look forward to the next book in this series and if you haven’t tried Grant’s books before, I would highly suggest starting with the first book in the series.*ARC provided by authorReviewed by Annie❤ ♡ Don't want to miss any of our posts?

Ms. Grant writes dragons like nobody's business and I have loved reading her fantastic paranormal for years now and with every one of her releases I fall more and more in love with the worlds she builds. What do you get when you take a woman who's been hurt and sworn off love and a Dragon King on a mission to find the person responsible for a war in his world and put them together? Incredible passion and chemistry, that's what. Sebastian is on a mission and when he believes Gianna may be the key to finding what he's looking for, it's game on! He's sexy, and charming, and speaks with a Scottish brogue. Good luck resisting that! Of course, as his plan is put into motion, real feelings and a real connection start to grow and it's at that moment that I knew cooking dinner that night would have to wait, because no way was I putting this story down until I finished! Adding to the delicious heat and chemistry was the mystery as to who was responsible for the war. I won't give anything away but I will say, buckle up my friends, for twists, turns, and danger. Loved it all! Whether you're just picking up a Donna Grant story for the first time with Dragon Burn, or are a long-time fan, I know you will love this story as much as I did! Thank you, Ms. Grant, for another phenomenal read!

    I am going to start this with a caveat, dun-dun-dahhhhh...no it isn't big deal but I do think I need to mention it. If you have followed any of my 1,001 Dark Nights reviews you know I am a huge proponent of the fact that you can pick up any of these novellas regardless of if you have never read any of the books in the series and you wouldn't be lost or felt like you were missing out on any parts of the story. Dragon Burn however doesn't fit into that same mold. There are so many little pieces of I am going to start this with a caveat, dun-dun-dahhhhh...no it isn't big deal but I do think I need to mention it. If you have followed any of my 1,001 Dark Nights reviews you know I am a huge proponent of the fact that you can pick up any of these novellas regardless of if you have never read any of the books in the series and you wouldn't be lost or felt like you were missing out on any parts of the story. Dragon Burn however doesn't fit into that same mold. There are so many little pieces of information in this book, little points that unless you have read the previous books you won't understand their importance. Now the good thing about that is that if you haven't ever read the series I suppose you won't know what you are missing, haha but trust me when I say that you will be missing out. As is typical with these novella's there is a lot that I can't tell you, especially in the case of this one because there are so many little plot points that aren't going to really answer your questions but are going to get your inner sleuth on the job. This is one of those series that now, at book 11.5, I wish I had started a book 'bible'. I wish I had family trees, Venn diagrams, graphs, color charts.... I almost, ALMOST, wish I had highlighted anything I thought was important the minute I started reading this series. Donna has been pulling us along on this amazing trail and leaving little bread crumbs the whole time and in Dragon Burn I know that she's basically dumped one of her bread bags right at our feet and if I had kept up with all the little pieces in the past I might be able to answer some questions now. This series is a great work of theories and sleuthing and I know we are getting to a precipice with Dragon Burn being a huge step toward the Ah-Ha moment we have all been waiting for. I throughly enjoyed the romantic relationship between Sebastian and Gianna, yes it is an insta-love but ah mother-nature she does love to do that to our Dragon Kings. These characters have all been hurt by betrayal and centuries of watching the human world destroy everything the Dragon's once loved. It is easy to understand their hesitancy to, even after 11 books, be open to the idea of finding their mate so the push-pull dynamic we have come to associate with a Dragon King novel is all there thought in Dragon Burn it isn't quite in the fore front of the story, there are so many other things happening in such a short amount of time that Sebastian gives in quicker than the Kings who have had a full length novel, but that is as one would expect. The romance is smooth and steamy, it flows perfectly into the rest of the story, you'll fall in love with both these characters and I can't wait to see how they interact with the others once they return to Dreagan, I definitely need more from this couple. There are a lot of twists and turns and little bits of information that will make you say ah-ha and ooohhhhh. Something big is coming and it's all getting set up here in this little novella so do not skip this book! ~ HAPPY READING ~http://www.readsallthebooks.com/2017/...

She writes the perfect good guy and the perfect bad guy, too.This one was about Sebastian and Gianna who met in Venice. They fell in love and had to battle the dark fae and that evil Mikkel and Eilish. I’ll be glad when they’re killed. And, of course, this book tells you something really, really new. So, all of you who keep up with the Dragon Kings books will be as surprised as I was, I’m sure.These books do continue on with the next book but every single one is a stand-alone. The two MC’s get their HEA and there’s the opening for another book. NO CLIFFHANGERS. Thank God…I wish Ms. Grant could write faster. Or she could get other writers to help. I absolutely love the books and novellas. Hmmm… I also love her Reaper books and the Chiasson series and LaRue series. Besides all the novellas, I’ve read or listened to all 11 of her Dragon King books.

The chemistry and connection was fiery and the emotions just as strong. While there is a little bit of insta-love going on here, I just went with it as this was a short novella. All in all, I can't wait for more from this author in the future. Bravo! 4 stars ~Ratula

Once upon a time, Sebastian was very good friends with Ulrik (it sounds like he might have been the closest king to Ulrik beyond Con) and even centuries later he still aches for the Kings to be fully reunited.

Once upon a time, Sebastian was very good friends with Ulrik (it sounds like he might have been the closest king to Ulrik beyond Con) and even centuries later he still aches for the Kings to be fully reunited. At the start of Dragon Burn, Sebastian begins to search for evidence of Ulrik’s long-lost uncle, Mikkel in Venice. His plan is to seduce Mikkel’s assistant and procure every ounce of information she has on her employer. Once Sebastian meets Gianna though, his plan changes. Gianna intrigues him, she’s a loner who dresses in pink tweed, and the dichotomy of her makes him want to know more. So as Sebastian seduces Gianna for her information, he also begins to fall for her. Thus the dilemma…can Sebastian obtain the information he requires while protecting Gianna? Or has his presence already put her life at risk?There were some truly brilliant elements woven throughout this novella. My absolute favorite thing about this novella, though, was Gianna’s introduction to the Dragon King origin story. She actually hears the story second hand, while her life’s in danger. Even more unique, Gianna hears the story from an enemy of the Kings. As a reader, this telling of the origin story had me completed captivated. Gianna’s unique introduction to the origin of the Dark Kings gave me a glimpse of the men of Dreagan through a different lens than I had explored before. It was fascinating.The other great thing about this novella was the tremendous forward progress in the overall Dark Kings story arc. Seriously, this isn’t really a novella you’ll want to miss if you are Grant fan. Although most of the Kings didn’t have a part to play in this particular novella, we got to see lots of Ulrik, Mikkel, Con, and Sebastian. I walked away from this book with more information about Con and Ulrik than I ever had before and more than I had expected to receive in such a short amount of pages.Sadly there was something that I didn’t love about this novella that cast a shadow over the romance for me. Throughout Dragon Burn, Sebastian referenced Gianna in a way that really, really bothered me. He calls her an “ice queen” and “frigid” several times and I’m going to be honest, it distracted me from the story to the point that I had to put the book down. I’ve certainly read about “ice queen” heroines before, but in most books with this particular trope, the hero comes to realize his initial assessment of the heroine was incorrect. I didn’t feel like Sebastian and Gianna ever reached that type of appreciation for one another in Dragon Burn. I don’t need every heroine I read in romance to be warm and bubbly, but I finished the book not knowing if Sebastian really “got” Gianna. It was a bummer for sure.Even with my little unease over Sebastian and Gianna’s appreciation for one another, this book should not be missed by readers of the Dark Kings series. Dragon Burn moves the larger story arc of the Dark Kings forward rapidly in very few pages and the revelations really shouldn’t be missed for anyone keeping up with the series. 3.5 stars for Dragon Burn by Donna Grant!

    DRAGON BURN is a novella in her Dark Kings series, (Book 11.5!) and really best enjoyed when read in order. I’ve liked SMOKE AND FIRE, FIRESTORM, and BLAZE, so I’m eager to reach the “climax” of this sexy series.Sebastian is a Dragon King who promised to help Ulrik no matter what centuries ago, and he regrets having to bind Ulrik’s magic to prevent the destruction of humanity centuries ago. He doesn’t believe that Ulrik is the menace behind the troubles facing the Dragon Kings of Dreagan. So, he DRAGON BURN is a novella in her Dark Kings series, (Book 11.5!) and really best enjoyed when read in order. I’ve liked SMOKE AND FIRE, FIRESTORM, and BLAZE, so I’m eager to reach the “climax” of this sexy series.Sebastian is a Dragon King who promised to help Ulrik no matter what centuries ago, and he regrets having to bind Ulrik’s magic to prevent the destruction of humanity centuries ago. He doesn’t believe that Ulrik is the menace behind the troubles facing the Dragon Kings of Dreagan. So, he’s off to Venice to investigate a lead in the search for Ulrik. It seems there’s a man who looks quite a lot like Ulrik operating there under the name of Oscar Cox, and Seb believes him to be Ulrik’s disgruntled uncle Mikkel in disguise. Seb positions himself to meet Cox’s beautiful American assistant, Gianna Santini, in order to gain access to her boss and discover his true identity.Gianna is done with relationships. Divorced and bitter, she eschews meeting men and prefers to be solitary–filling her time with her work for “Oscar Cox,” a powerful British man to whom she’s an assistant. She loves Mr. Cox’s power and how quickly she’s risen within his company. Still, the man seated beside her for the past two nights at her favorite tavern is quite attractive. And, when she strikes up the nerve to chat with him, Seb’s brogue is tasty, too.They begin a tentative acquaintance, and Gianna is intrigued by Seb’s sensuality and chivalry. Both are drawn to the other, and this is odd for many reasons; Gianna’s not interested in having alover after her disastrous marriage and Seb’s sworn to not take a human lover. Still, they have an easy-going day sharing breakfast and sightseeing. Gianna, wanting to experience more of the thrill of Seb, invites him to the masquerade ball she’s arranged–hosted by Oscar–and that’s when things get hinky.Seb’s as attracted to Gianna as he’s ever been to any being. And, he’s conflicted about setting himself in her path, because she’s clearly in trouble. At the ball Seb’s suspicions are confirms, and Gianna’s boos recognizes that another Dragon King has been in contact with her. Expect capture, torture and potential casualties. Okay, definite casualties of you count Dark Fae henchmen in the body count. Seb’s connection to Gianna and Constatntine, King of the Dragon Kings, enables him to find out the truth behind Ulrik’s betrayal and Mikkel’s role in their millenia-old feud. Seb also meets the powerful Druid who’s been summoned to destroy both Ulrik and Constantine.There’s still plenty of plotlines to weave together; this novella is a rather self-contained romance for Seb and Gianna, though it adds some critical pieces to the mix…if only Seb and Gianna could remember what those were. Dang Druids and their memory stealing charms. If my count is correct, partnering Seb with Gianna means that only Constantine and Ulrik are single Dragon Kings–and I expect they will find mates and settle scores in the final book, which I’d expect to come out in the coming months.

This novella focuses on the Dragon King Sebastian, and his mission to uncover the mysteries and secrets surrounding his friend and fellow Dragon King Ulrik, banished from their world of Dreagan for the acts he committed. Sebastian has theories as to what really happened during those dark days, but can’t ask for an investigation without some form of proof. To prove his theories, Sebastian heads to Venice, and plans to seduce the personal assistant to a powerful businessman that he believes is directly connected to the events surrounding his friends banishment. The only problem is, when he finally connects with the fiery redhead, it is she who seduces him without even trying. The connection between the two is immediate, and powerful. What started out as a mission in seduction, quickly becomes something much, much more. When the evil they are hunting becomes the hunter, things become much more dangerous. I was absolutely captivated by the blurb, and as I began to read the story reeled me in. From cover to cover, I was enthralled. The characters were amazing, well developed and presented in a way that made them relatable and desirable. They carried a depth of feeling, and personalities that made me love them. As the 11.5 installment of the Dark Kings Series, there is a lot of previous action and storyline leading up to this novella. Since I am not as familiar with this series as I’d like to be, I was just a bit lost at times, though was able to catch up (for the most part) as the story continued. If you are able, I would definitely recommend reading at least some of the previous series first, but can say that it isn’t necessarily a requirement. The plot and storyline were well developed, as they continue a long standing series with familiar characters. My one complaint was the way the book came to such an abrupt end. It felt a bit rushed, and left me with more questions than answers. Now, I’m as much of a sucker for a good cliffhanger as the next bibliophile, but this one left me feeling a little too cold. Despite these two relatively minor issues for me, I LOVED the book, read it cover to cover in one sitting, and would recommend it (and the rest of the series, in turn) to other lovers of paranormal romance.

Although this can be read as a standalone, I would have liked to have read the previous books. Sebastian is one of the Dragon Kings who resides in Scotland. There is a war going on and the dragons have secluded themselves away from the humans to avoid being detected. Even though, there is a suspect in regards to the start of this war, there is a big question mark! Sebastian intends to find the evidence, once and for all. Gianna was divorced after a short marriage and now dedicates her time to her work. She is a valued personal assistant to a business tycoon. She doesn’t socialise. Her work is her life! Sebastian takes a trip to Italy, where he has reasons to believe that he can find the culprit. Gianna might well be the key to the success of his mission. He starts off by seducing her to get the information he requires. Being an ice queen, Gianna doesn't usually respond to these seductions, but she is intrigued by this brogue Scottish. Who can blame her?! He thinks that it will be a quick and easy job and soon realises that he is just as intrigued by her. She has an effect that goes right to his soul and they discover that there is a deep connection between them. By the time he realises that he has put her in danger, it might just be a little too late! Can he resolve the problem and leave her unscathed? This short story has many twists and turns. There are doubts about the real suspect. It becomes apparent that the whole thing has been orchestrated and the true motivation for the war is exposed. Dark Faes and Druids are involved. Sebastian is loyal to his friends and his feelings for Gianna are deep rooted. Gianna's reaction to this exposure is the opposite of what the enemy expects. The final twist has left me wanting for more! An exciting read. I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

It is an unprecedented occurrence for a Dragon King but Bast vows to support his best friend no matter what happens.

In order to do that, he must get close to the personal assistant of the man he suspects as the true culprit, a woman he dubs the Ice Queen after studying her but he is about to be proven very wrong. Bast soon learns that Gianna is a woman whose fire just hasn't been sparked by the right man yet... and he is that man.Amidst intrigue and his search for the truth, Bast finds himself drawn to Gianna and that attraction is far from one sided. Neither can understand the pull between them but giving into it is inevitable. This story had a wonderful mix of richly detailed settings, colorful characters and sizzling chemistry that leapt off the pages. If this novella is any indication of the rest of the series, I need to start adding these books to my TBR now!

I loved his fierce loyalty - first to his friends and then to his woman. Dragon Burn was a quick, fun, and hot read and as I said, I can't wait to start from the beginning of the Dragon Kings series and well educate myself on the world that Donna Grant has created.
