Open Flame by Lacy Danes Review

Open Flame
Dragon’s Fate Book 2

Lacy Danes

Genre: Paranormal romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Date of Publication: September 24th 2013
Cover Artist: Kanaxa

Book Description:
Between hate and lust lies heaven, hell… and smoldering love.

Like his brothers, Madoc is a dragon born by blood magic. Unlike them, he has only once bitten a human in a near-hopeless quest to find his eternal mate. Watching that woman die nearly destroyed him.

Now he works to invent a watch that will rewind time. When he attends the Spectacle of Time in Paris, though, he finds a woman who shakes the foundation of his world and crumbles his ferocious control.

Ever since the black-haired man with the red crescent on his cheek ruined her family, Fina has hated him. When she runs into him in Paris, she is determined to show him just how much. Instead, overwhelmed by the desire to both kill him and bed him, her body betrays her and she melts in his arms.

Sparks fly, and—when his teeth sink into her skin—she ignites. But she can’t run far and fast enough to avoid the burning truth. She is now part of Madoc’s dangerous world?body, soul, and fire.

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, time-shifting, distance-hopping, a super-hot dragon, and a woman who can take the heat.

My Review: 4 stars

This was definitely an interesting tale. Dragons who time travel? New concept to me. The story was entertaining and fun, sometimes a little scary, but all good. I liked Fina very much. She's a fiesty, independent woman who learns that things are not always as they seem. Madoc is also an interesting character, but determined to have his mate with or without her consent. Total alpha male - loved it. This is a brand new world that Lacey has created, and I'm going to have to go back to read the first book to see what happened there.
