Get lost in a world of danger, secrets, and desire in the newest installment of best-selling author Erin Kellison's action-packed Dragons of Bloodfire series.
Billionaire dragon shifter and Bloodkin Triad member Warrick Voclain is no stranger to power. But when his trusted steward's beautiful granddaughter - all grown up and successful in her own right - seems to be using illegal magic in his presence, he is thrown for a loop. And the fact that she's doing so to protect him? Alarming.
Samantha Vine needs to stay under the radar, or her secret gift will get her and her granddad killed. She didn't intend for her quick visit home to stretch into weeks in Warrick's company, but anyone striking at Warrick would also hurt her granddad. Only she has the ability to see what's coming, though she'll need Warrick's help to stop it.
The use of such magic is punishable by death, and Warrick's position on the Triad requires that he adhere to the rule of law. But the attraction between them is electric, stirring his blood and straining his control.
Adversaries wait in every shadow, and the easiest way to strike down a powerful dragon is to go for the heart, in Warrick's case, Samantha. With fire and blood, he'll reshape the world into one that's safe for her. And those that don't bend to his will? They will burn.

Ok, I didn’t like this book nearly as much as I did the other one, and not because of the two different narrators. This one seemed to dwell too much on Samantha’s family being servants to Warrick and his family for generations, and Samantha seeing herself and her family being just that, servants. And Warrick worrying about that same thing for way too long. I mean, Warrick was only MR. Voclain not a prince or some kind of royalty. It was as if Warrick’s mother felt he was too good for Samantha, (even though she loved Samantha and had always protected her,) and not worrying that he was a dragon and she was human. I didn’t understand those thoughts going on for so long.
I did like the secondary characters: Xanthippe, Thomas, Maude Voclain, Ryan, Peggy, Nicholas, and Carolyn. They were all good, mostly. And in the beginning I liked Brandon, too.
There was graphic sex in this book and no swearing to speak of.
As to the narrator: He was good and terrible at the same time. He read with lots of emotions BUT when funny stuff was said and it says someone laughed and the narrator didn’t, well, that just sucks. Two of the most important things a narrator can do is laugh and whisper, to me anyway. Also, Thomas, Maude Voclain and Ryan had the most horrible voices I’ve ever heard. They were actually just creepy sounding.
Hmm. Kind of a bummer. This book was not nearly as good as the first book, Tempted by Fire. And the narrator switch did not help either. I was so bummed when I saw the narrator was different.
The story line and plot were okay. I thought the gift that Samantha had was interesting enough. But her character was a bit too wimpy for me. Warrick was pretty decent, I liked him well enough. There was a lot more inner dialogue than there was actual dialogue between the two. The story line and plot was just meh and it could have been better. It seemed to be a bit scattered.
As for the narration, not the best. The voices he used for the main characters was fine. but the other characters in the book voices were too high pitched scratchy and all of them sounded old. Just not good at all. The narration did not help this book and actually made it a bit worse.
