Publisher's Summary

Paris! City of dreams - or shifter nightmares? 

Natalie Brewer has come to Paris to live out a dream, not a nightmare. Then a vampire attack exposes her to a whole new side to the City of Lights - and to her own heritage. Before she knows it, she’s swept into a world she never imagined, with gargoyles, werewolves, and dragons who claim she’s descended from a legendary shifter queen. Now her life is in danger, and it’s impossible to know who to trust, other than the mysterious stranger who risks his life for her again and again. 

After a decade in the Foreign Legion, all dragon shifter Tristan Chevalier wants is to settle into a civilian life and a new job. His mission: to prove himself to the Guardians of Paris and to protect the city. But all that is threatened when an innocent woman stumbles into his life - and into his heart. Being appointed her bodyguard is a blessing and a curse, because Natalie is absolutely, positively off-limits despite the smoldering desire they both feel. Worse, every shifter in Paris has set their sights on her, from bloodthirsty vampires to power-hungry dragons and jealous rivals. For Tristan, it’s the test of a lifetime, and the outcome will affect the fortunes of an entire city. 

Anna Lowe’s Fire Maidens: Billionaires & Bodyguards series: A series of sizzling paranormal romances with adult content. Each story is a pause-resister packed with action, emotion, and romance! No cliffhangers. If you like smoldering hot shapeshifters, military heroes, and royal intrigue, you'll love these books. Join these strong heroines and their alpha heroes in atmospheric locales filled with danger and suspense!

Great story

Natlie Brewer had dreams of going to Paris so she did. Everything changed when a vampire attacked . Who knew those things were real well she didn't. She didn't even know she had a heritage in her bloodline that was attracting them to her.
Gargoyles, vampires, and dragons oh my!
Tristan Chevalier's mission is to prove himself to the Guardians of Paris. Protect the city by watching the vampires and reporting on them but when he see natalie in trouble he can't just sit watch and report. Plus his Dragon has other plans for the little human that he is on board with.
Love the action, drama, mystery, betrayal, spice, and so much more this story has going on in it. The characters are fantastic! The story really pulls you in fast and keeps you interested. I really enjoyed reading this one and can't wait for the next story to come out about London and the next fire maiden.

I absolutely love this new mythology

This fated mate story in steroids swept me away to Paris and a new “world” that is so intriguing that I felt an immediate emotional connection with these characters. Natalie is just a normal American girl taking charge of her life and fulfilling a dream of living in Paris. Tristan is a war veteran coming back to civilian life as a protector for the mysterious Guardians. When they meet it is destiny and it is magic. But the overarching plot of the Fire Maidens also draws you in and it is hopeful even if they have to fight to protect humanity. Loved this action packed suspenseful romance.

Fun and Entertaining!

I listen to the audio version and the narrator did a good job. I do wish she had a bit more depth to her voice at times, but overall, this is a solid performance.


Exciting new series! Loved the premise with the whole fire maiden scenario and that the books in the series will take place in different European cities. Here's hoping for cities in Ireland and Scotland! This one is in Paris, and it was fun to touch on some of Paris' attractions. Natalie is surprised to learn that supernatural entities exist; vampires, shifters, etc., but she's even more surprised to learn that she may have more to do with that world than she anticipated. She ends up meeting Tristan; a dragon shifter, who helps protect and support Natalie. Unfortunately, old fashioned ideals get in the way of their connection. Also, an unfortunate, stuck-up supernatural gets in the way as well. The vampires aren't exactly making things easy for Natalie as well, so she's dealing with a whole lot. I love the whole mate connection, and Tristan and Natalie are really sweet together. I do wish Natalie felt a bit more for Tristan or that what she feeling came across better, but overall, they have good chemistry and definitely some heat between them. Entertaining adventure for Natalie and Tristan! I'm really excited to read the next book!

The first layer

I love Anna Lowe's series. Each book in the series adds another layer to the mysteries and lives of the characters. This is the first book in her new series, Fire Maidens and is just the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to find out what is hidden underneath.

Fire Maidens rock!

I am in love with Anna Lowe's new Billionaires and Bodyguards, Fire Maidens series! Book one, Fire Maidens: Paris, is a wonderful book full of interesting characters set in current times world but with supernaturals.

There is unrest in Europe. Unrest within the supernatural community as well as the human one. The Guardians have been searching for a fire maiden for centuries. They are sure that she could bring order and abundance to the city-if one was ever found! Dragonshifter Tristan, has been hired to track supernatural activity within the city. When he witnesses a potential vampire attack on a human girl, he springs into action. Afterwards, he is assigned as her bodyguard-which is good and bad. Good because she needs protecting, but bad because Natalie does things to his insides. Things he shouldn't be feeling because she's off limits!

Natalie came to Paris on a dream. She's always dreamed of living here and she has finally done it. When she is volunteering at a soup kitchen, she notices hunky Tristan walk in. When he saves her from a real creepy guy, the world as she knows it, is gone. She is grateful, but what is with all this other nonsense? Is Tristan telling her the truth? Her heart says yes, but now that she is involved in what can only be described as a nightmare, is she up for the challenge?

I wholeheartedly jumped into Fire Maidens: Paris! The story is believable and there is lots of mystery and intrigue! Natalie and Tristan's chemistry was off the charts! They tried to behave, but it was futile. I couldn't help but root for them as they battled evil forces who would stop at nothing for power. Kelsey did a phenomenal job narrating like usual! She makes this story zing to life!!

A well-crafted intro to the series and a book I do not hesitate to recommend! I am anxious for the next installment to see where Anna Lowe takes us next!

Exciting beginning

A great start to an exciting new series. This one starts out with Tristan a dragon shifter tasked to guard Natalie a fire maiden who just found out about her destiny. Forbidden love, vampires and a surprise enemy make for an action packed story. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

Fantastic Start to A New Exciting Series


Fantastic Start to A New Exciting Series
This is the first book in what I think is going to be another great hit for this talented author. It is a standalone series which again features some great characters. This book is about Natalie and her Mate Tristan.

Natalie believes herself to be totally human, she has grown up knowing nothing at all about shifters or the supernatural world. She is in Paris because for years she has dreamt about the city and it has been her dream to live in it. She has found herself a tiny apartment, works in a bar and helps out at a homeless shelter.

But one night whilst working at the shelter she encounters two very different men, two men who will change her life forever! One is a vampire and one is a dragon shifter - she is about to see a whole new side to Paris. As she leaves the shelter she is attacked by four vampires and a gargoyle but is saved by Tristan a dragon shifter. They go home to his apartment in an effort to keep her safe and the next day she is taken to meet the Guardians of Paris and is told that she is descended from a powerful legendary shifter queen, that she is, in fact, a Fire Maiden and that she is the savior the shifters of Paris have been waiting for.

She is assigned a bodyguard, Tristan, who has returned to Paris after a decade in the Foreign Legion. His mission now is to prove himself to the Guardians of Paris and to protect the city. Being appointed as a bodyguard for Natalie is both a blessing and a curse, it's a blessing because he gets to be close to her and a curse because Natalie is off-limits, she is his charge and he feels way out of his reach.

But just because he's been told to guard and protect but don't touch doesn't mean that the smoldering desire they both feel will go away. When Natalie is captured by bloodthirsty vampires working in tandem with Jacquline, a power-hungry she-dragon she has to dig deep and fight for both her life and Tristan's. With so much at stake, they must win!

There is so much more I want to tell you but then I would spoil this book for you which would be unforgivable of me. What I will say is that I loved this book and am looking forward to the next one in the series.

The narration of this book is done by the incredibly talented Kelsey Osborne who seems to narrate all of Anna's books. She does a wonderful job of bringing this story and the characters to life.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

love

absolutely love Anna's writing and now due to health issues I've been listening to audio books more and I'll say I'm glad I still get my fix being able to listen to Anna's work. All her stories are worth reading or listening to.

Great

Loved this story. The setting of Paris was awesome. The Paris catacombs have always been a fascinating subject to me. Though I have mixed feeling when it comes to them. The idea of being able to just walk through them is just wrong. I mean really your literally walking through someone grave. Not on or by but through it. Yet at the same time the idea speaks to ones creepy/ scary/ horror movie loving side and sounds cool. Sick but cool. I loved the characters in this story. They had great chemistry and fit well together. I totally recommend this book and am so looking forward to book 2 in the series.
