Dragon shifter Thane Ealdian has waited six hundred years to avenge the loss of his family, and finally a clue has surfaced that implicates an old adversary. Thane will stop at nothing to seek his revenge, but to prevent violence between the clans, the Bloodkin Triad has forced a mediator on him. Some upstart named Emerson Clark…Thoughts on Tempted by Fire: OMG, I LIKED THIS ONE. There's something about an ancient, mostly feral dragon putting a leash on his desires that worked for me. You know, Thane just worked for me. He's ready to go to the big dragon meadow in the sky until he gets drawn into Ember's orbit. Given that she's clueless about what to expect from her life as a dragon, she needs him as much as he needs her.
Emerson is fed up with all Bloodkin and how they’ve managed to control every aspect of her life. While she doesn’t believe that Bloodkin can shift into dragons—because, really?—she has to admit, they are exceptionally nice to look at. But once the mediation is over, she wants nothing to do with them ever again.
When Thane discovers that the clever and beautiful Emerson is the key to uncovering the truth, he has no intention of letting her go. Although she wants to run, she can’t turn her back on Thane or her intense feelings for him. His quest pulls at her heart, just as his nearness sparks something dangerous inside her. With evil in hot pursuit, sooner or later everything will ignite—the mediation, the shifter within her… and their passions.
I really liked them together. I liked that Ember was leery of Thane when they first met. I liked that she wanted nothing to do with dragons in general and had no idea what she'd gotten herself involved in.
Heck, I liked that I was kept guessing on who the bad guys was right up until it was revealed. Kinda even after it was revealed because I don't trust twisty plots.
Anyway. Total winner of a new series and I hope to see more of these dragons in the future.
