Dragon Temptation (Crimson Dragons, #1)
Major Elin Mara has one rule she’s always obeyed: No mixing business with pleasure. Although difficult at times, she has stood by it. Until now. Tasked with a new job that appears to be another attempt to drive her out of the military, her first order of business is to bring the tall, ripped stranger who claims to be able to breathe fire up to speed. Without breaking her own rule. Gulp. Awakened from the long sleep into which he fled to escape his past, Kallore quickly finds that his “teacher” is more than just that. She’s the woman he’s been searching for. Suddenly his attempt to run away seems more like fate driving him into her deliciously curvy body. Now if only he can convince her that he’s not just another soldier, but something more. The more time they spend together, the harder it becomes for Elin to resist the dragon’s temptation. He’s scorching hot and determined to say and do everything right to gain her trust. But the past can’t stay away, and when it rears its ugly head, they both lose sight of their true purpose. Can they focus on each other and the reason for Kallore’s awakening, or will they get caught up in ancient wrongs, blinded to the danger coming straight at them? For a VERY limited time this includes the bonus novel Furnace as well!

This unknown was called "Outsiders" and their smaller soldiers "Walkers", their strength, absorbing humanity.. The Military is in a quandary and they heed the call of Kyan and Liandra to see if their awakened dragon can help defeat this threat before it's too late.Major Elin Mara has spent the last 10 years proving her worth to the higher ranks that would stifle her because of her gender and the lies of a a scorned officer. Now she is sent to an unknown base to train an unknown, they think they will finally break her, but she is determined to do the best and prove them wrong once again.. She throws all her self discipline to the winds though when she looks upon the man she is to train.Kallore is awakened from his self imposed sleep after thousands of years, things have changed now and he still wants to continue sleeping for the guilt and shame that he still feels. When he gazes upon the female soldier, he is confronted with what he never thought he'd have.....His Mate Will he possess the strength to defeat the Outsider when he sees his mate threatened?Lot's of anticipation as Kallore faces the unknown and he realizes and comes to the conclusion that more of his kind must be awakened if they are to save humanity from the Unknown in time.

This story was absolutely fantastic! Its my first Amelia Jade story and I was happy and thrilled with this story. I am always looking for a good paranormal romance. They have been my go to genre for a long time. But in the last several months I have gotten heavy into dragon shifters. I use to be just wolf or bear shifters or even angel and demon type of girl. But lately I have been craving more and more dragon shifters, and Dragon Temptation was fun, smoking hot, with great characters and a perfect storyline. I loved how this story was set up and everything from the descriptions to the banter was top notch and piqued my interest. What a treat! I can't wait to read the next book in this series!Dragon Temptation gets a SIZZLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS!

The relationship between these two is out of this world ! At one point I myself wanted to smack Kallore for not speaking over his past . Now when Elin wanted to test to see if he is strong enough after such a long slumber he was able to do all she asked without any trouble what so ever ! But one thing that got me snickering and I will quote(because hey it is that good !! ) ...and this is after Kallore had shifted ... " It's , um , a lot bigger than I expected " And the two way glass that set these two off in laughter ! LMBO dang did Amelia Jade do such a good job here !! This is well written and strongly recommended ! I was gifted this ARC and just had to leave a review !

    This will be a great series by this author but not quite what I like to read. These Scary Aliens called Outsiders are horrible.A wonderful strong and capable woman as the heroine which is great. Kallore is a dragon who has been asleep for hundreds of years due to a horrible incident with his sister in his past when he was young. Not his fault what happened and I hope that Prill will maybe make her way into this series.Elin is a career army woman who has been dealt a bad hand due to a higher-rank This will be a great series by this author but not quite what I like to read.

The interaction between the two main characters was enjoyable though.Great idea and intriguing theme with a very interesting new direction from this author but not one that was my cup of tea. Not a fan of alien invasion themes but I will have to read on to see them defeated, I hope.I did like what happened with Brigadier General Moore but thought it needed a better outcome. There was no acknowledgment of his wrongdoings in the past.This is my honest review of this book.

    2 in 1 BonanzaI was lucky enough to purchase the first book in the Crimson Dragon series, Dragon Temptation, by Amelia Jade that also included a second book - Furnace. What a terrific combo. Although these books represent totally different paranormal worlds ( or do they?) they both have strong, interesting and smart heroes.

What a terrific combo. Although these books represent totally different paranormal worlds ( or do they?) they both have strong, interesting and smart heroes. Both the men and women are characters you'll find worth rooting to win. Kallore, a dragon awoken from a centuries long sleep finds the military officer, Elin, chosen to "train" him, irresistible. It's fascinating to follow Kallore as he slowly reveals his powers and Elin realizes he is truly the hero human kind, and she, need to save them from the horror they face. In Furnace, Lex is a werewolf living his quiet, simple life in his small valley until a series of supernatural storms turn things upside down. The power company sends a high powered exec to insure repairs to their smashed system. That's when Lex, the experienced, intelligent lineman must work to help Petal realize her true potential and save his valley. Both books are fast paced and exciting. Looking forward to more of these worlds.

    What a great start to a new series! Elin has been through some rough things in her military career and it seem like it's coming to an end when she is sent to the desert.

Her past demons don't help.I can't wait for the next book because we are kind of let at a pivotal moment. The waking of more dragons. Which they are going to need.This wasn't your typical love story. We have an intense backstory of the threat to them all and if they will be able to conquer the enemy. I loved it!!I voluntarily agreed to review this book. My review is my own honest opinion.

    I was offered this book as an ARC for an honest review but ended up borrowing it on KU. I LOVED IT! Elin was a Colonel in the military and Kallore was a dragon that they had woke up to help fight the Outsiders (hideous creatures that suck the life force from people and that helped them grow). Kallore knew immediately that Elin was his mate but knew he had to wait to tell her. He didn't think he was worthy of her (the why was revealled late in the book). He went through all the training easily an I was offered this book as an ARC for an honest review but ended up borrowing it on KU. I LOVED IT!

He went through all the training easily and then had to learn the current customs of people. Elin had had a hard time in her career due to a lecherous general who then made up rumors that she had slept with him and then left him when she didn't get her way. I loved the way Kallore took care of this general and his colonel. It was epic. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the series.

    Overall, this was a good book. Kallore and Elin were both awesome characters, and I loved them as a couple. It was a lot of fun following their story, and seeing how they dealt with everything. It was a good start to a new series, and I'm looking forward to seeing what else the author has in store for it. However I did have one issue, which was that I didn't like the backstory about Prill. It put a sad taint on the book that really bothered me a lot. I'm hoping that maybe things aren't what they Overall, this was a good book.

I took a star off because of that story. I was gifted a copy.

    Elin has worked hard her whole career, only to be labeled a black sheep. Kallore made a mistake years ago, now being woken up from stone, he is unsure if he can help save humanity. Fate brought them together, but can they save humanity? Will Elin take a chance and give into her heart?Loved this first book to the Crimson Dragons. Loved how Kallore was goofy and determined, but when it came to Elin, he was determined to take his time and help her. I was proud of Elin for busting her butt and worki Elin has worked hard her whole career, only to be labeled a black sheep.
