Publisher's Summary

Darius is back. Edinburgh thought that it had seen the last of this seductive dragon king, but that was before Darius found something worthwhile. He just can't stay away from the impossibly beautiful Dr. Sophie Martin, even though he knows that a passion this strong could prove detrimental for them both.

Sophie tried to forget her encounter with smoking-hot Darius to no avail. He's in her dreams, tempting her. But her association with Darius catches the attention of another, putting her in mortal danger, and Darius, who has vowed to protect her, is her only hope. But can she trust the notorious dragon shape-shifter? The only thing she knows for sure is that she cannot resist him.

Love this series so much!

Any additional comments?

I really love this series. Darius is a hot smart mouth King. He knows he doesn't want a mate but can't stop his attraction to the beautiful Dr. Sophie Martin. He has eyes for only her. Dr. Sophie Martin tries but fells at wiping Darius from her mind. The single night they shared is on repeat in her mind.

I can't think of anything I didn't like about this audiobook. The voice as always makes you feel like your right in Scotland. The plot is getting thicker and thicker. I guess they one thing I do want like everyone else is Who is Rhys's Dragon! Boy I beat that book is going to blow everything out the water.

Great continuation of the series!!!

Another great addition to the Dark King Series. "Smothering Hunger" picks up right where the previous book, "Soul Scorched" left off. I'm going to take a minute to say that technically, you can read these books on their own, however, personally, I believe, you will get significantly better understanding of the larger picture of what is transpiring if you read the entire series. This being said, if you started reading the series here with SMOLDERING HUNGER, you will want to go back anyways to rad the previous stories.

Donna, the author, continues to entice the readers with each page. The heroine, Sophie, is independant, smart and knows what she wants. While she has suffered in the past, she is ready to move forward. The hero, Darius is happy killing the Dark Fae yet is memorized by Sophie and while the physical attraction is evident, he can't help wonder if there might be more...

Oh Rhi!!! This is another example of where Donna's writing skills excel... Rhi, while technically a secondary character, has develop a following which adores the character and can't wait to learn who her Dragon King is! SERIOUSLY Donna! You're messing with our EMOTIONS!!!

The Reapers make more of an appearance in this installment and OMG, talk about the potential for a twist swirl Donna has caused! That's all I'm saying!!

All and all ... the main arc of defeating the Dark Fae and Ulrik continues. It's now a matter of when and how.

Narrator: Antony Ferguson continues to do a great job with the series, though there are a few mispronunciation with the character's name. Also, the way he does the females' voices sometimes comes across a bit nasally.


Only a few more books left in the series....

Good story line, but get in with it already!

I’ve enjoyed this series for the most part, but I’m over the repetitive mystery of who the light Fey’s lover is and the repetitiveness of the storyline. It feels like each book is basically the same story over and over again. We get what seems like a little information about the actual story, but not enough to warrant so many books. It is getting very monotonous.

This story could have been told entirely in just a few books, there’s no need to have so many books in this series. We get it, dragon meets human female, denies attraction, something happens to said female, dragon realizes she truly is his mate. Not mention that every time Kahn finds out there’s a possible mate, he gets angry, offends the female, then accepts them - each book is basically the same. As I said, monotonous.

I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for these as they were part of the romance package. I am however, purchasing the last book available. I really hope it isn’t the same thing over again.
