    Terrific Read!

    Cooke's second book in her Dragonfire series, KISS OF FURY, follows the ongoing battle of good and evil fought between an ancient species of male shape-shifting dragons. The Pyr, whose job it is to guard earth's treasures -- the most important of which is humans -- must stop the Slayers from destroying the planet and killing off humanity. In addition, in order to remain strong, the Pyr must continue their line, so when a Pyr's 'firestorm' heralds his destined mate, he must answer the summons. The newest set of sparks fly between the Pyr 'Warrior,' Donovan Shea and the human 'Wizard,' scientist Alexandra 'Alex' Madison.......... Alex Madison has invented a 'green' machine that will help save the planet, but just as she's ready to unveil the environmental gem, her partner is murdered before her eyes ¿ eviscerated by dragons ¿ and the green machine prototype is destroyed and the lab burned. While recovering in the hospital from her own injuries, she continues to be haunted by memories of the horrific murder and evil dragons. Unfortunately, she's misdiagnosed as unstable and is ordered to be sent the psychiatric ward, only to be rescued by a stranger who turns out to be yet another dragon............ Donovan Shea is sent by the Pyr to rescue Alex from the hospital and guard her from the Slayers who want to destroy her and all evidence of her invention. When Donovan figures out that he was chosen for this mission because Alex is his destined mate ¿ which is obvious because his firestorm burns to life when he's with her ¿ he's angry, because he's vowed never to marry or father children. Determined to cheat destiny and avoid falling for the feisty, intelligent scientist, the reluctant warrior fights his desire for Alex, which only seems to turn up the flames............ In a race for time, Donovan and Alex work to rebuild the green machine, with help from the other Pyr dragons 'including the only female dragon, the beautiful Wyvern'. The Smith and the Seer 'Quinn and Sara' from KISS OF FIRE return, and Eric, the Pyr leader, tries to learn the Slayer's dark secrets having to do with the 'shadow dragons' who don't bleed. The mystery of the dragon's tooth is also introduced ¿ we're sure to read more about that in future books in the series.......... I'm a long-time fan of Cooke's medieval romances, as well as her contemporary fiction 'written under Claire Delacroix and Claire Cross'. I also just finished her newest urban fantasy novel, FALLEN by Claire Delacroix, about a fallen angel hero ¿ I highly recommend it to readers of any genre, but especially those who like edgy, dark urban fantasies. Cooke is a master at world-building, whether it's a contemporary world where dragons co-exist with unsuspecting humans or a post-nuclear urban setting filled with dark, gritty imagery and yummy, rich characters 'like in FALLEN'......... Eric's story, KISS OF FATE, is next in the Dragonfire series, and I'll be the first in line to buy it.

    a superb romantic fantasy

    The dragon war continues between the Pyr and Slayers over saving or destroying humanity. Both sides know of the legend that one day a wizard and warrior will change the stalemate each has a need to find the legend.--------------- Human research scientist Alexandra Madison believes she is about to make a major find only to have her lab destroyed in an arson assault and her partner killed. Pyr dragon Donovan Shea is sent to keep Alexandra safe. To his shock and chagrin, the frail human ignites his firestorm a desire he thought died when love betrayed him. Meanwhile Alex is attracted to Madison in his human form even as they are under assault from stalking Slayers.---------- The second Dragonfire paranormal romantic suspense (see KISS OF FIRE) is a terrific thriller that enables the audience to believe in the world this author Cooked up. The story line is fast-paced and filled with plenty of action yet fans will believe in the firestorm destined soulmates romantic subplot so critical to the tale. KISS OF FURY is a superb romantic fantasy starring two wonderful lead protagonists and a horde of nasty Slayers assigned to kill both of them.--------------- Harriet Klausner
