About the Book
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.

Attention: This book is intended for an ADULT audience and does contain sexual material.

So, I read Waterfall, the first of the Dragon's Fate Novellas, a while back, and it was alright. I felt that because of the sexual content the plot was a bit overrun. I gave Open Flame a read, to see if the plot continued or if the plot had really become the ‘joining’ of the Dragons and their mates… and it has.

I did not mind the sexual content, as I knew to expect it and knew the portion of the book it may take up based on the last episode. I found the characters kind of one-dimensional but I am interested to see if/ where the story line goes. Do all the brothers find their loves? What is going on with the creepy guy and Carmen?.. I need to know! :/

In Open Flame, the second of the brothers believes he has found his eternal mate, which I guess is a good portion of the overall plot anyway. However in this story there is more of a focus on their bonding than the evil that surrounds the Dragons.

I have been intrigued by this series, as it has mystery, sexual tension, dragons, complicated tidbits which I hope are explained, but you can only accomplish so much when each installment is only about 150 pages in length.

If what you are looking for is a short slightly erotic read ...with dragons... than this may be for you.
