Publisher's Summary

His name is Laith. To most, he is known as the owner of a local pub near Dreagan. But little do his patrons know that beneath his handsome, charming exterior, Laith has the heart and soul of a Dragon King - one who wields control by keeping his friends close and his enemies, just across the border, closer. That is, until a mysterious stranger enters the picture and sets his whole world off course. Iona is a woman with a mission: to learn the truth about her dead father. She has returned to Scotland only to learn that she's part of an ancient pact with Dreagan - one that will threaten the fragile peace with the Dragon Kings. Gorgeous, sly Iona isn't like anyone Laith has ever met before, and she harbors a secret that others would kill to possess. Will she complete him - or destroy him? Passion always comes with a price.

Contains mature themes.

An amazing book!

Just as all the couples in Donna Grant's books, Laith and Iona are perfect for each other. Their chemistry is strong and their passion for each other is hot, hot, hot.
Iona thinks she is going to Scotland for a reunion with her father. But before she can even get there she gets bad news and everything goes down hill from there. Laith didn't want the responsibility of keeping watch over Iona but his mind changes very quickly. After just a few short days he finds he can't stay away from her. There is lots of romance, mystery and magic in this book. You will not be disappointed.

Who doesn't love a happy ending

I love when 2 people who start with uncertainty of where they belong find their way together. All relationships should be as strong as theirs!

Laith serves up more than just whiskey...

This book was originally read as a part of the Audible Escape package, was later purchased as a Kindle eBook to read at my own leisure.
Hot Blooded is # 4 in the Dark King series and brings back some beloved characters from Dark Sword and Dark Warrior series. Dark forces plot to bring Iona Campbell, a descendant of Hayden Campbell, home to Scotland to use her neighbors the Dragon Kings of Dreagan. Laith, local bar owner and secretly a part of Dreagan, is recruited to find out what Iona knows about her land, her history, and what she knows about dragons. Neither are looking for love… but it finds them and binds them to each other.

Another great book. I always enjoy Donna's Dragon books. Audio books are so much better.

I have read all the warrior series in the past. I hope Rhy and Con
get back together.

Not as interesting as expected

No edge of the seat moments and too predictable. The narrator was good though. His voice was relaxing.

Good, but not great.

I didn't much care for the heroine in this book. The connection between the 2 felt kinda weak. I guess I just wanted more of an I completely and totally love you feeling. Maybe I will feel that with the next few books/characters. I am getting annoyed at Conn too.

Anthony Ferguson has good accents. His voice though is to soft and after awhile I get bored and want to fall asleep.

The series is a good one, I just hope it gets more entertaining as it goes along.

Stalling.....

Any additional comments?

I love this whole series but I really feel that the storyline is stalling, I feel Ms.Grant gives just enough to keep you there but really not a finishing story, I'd like to see the story move along a lot more per book, and for that reason I give it only 2 stars.
