A new erotic paranormal series, starring dragon shapeshifters, kicks off with a very sexy debut...

Prince Dylan MacLeod is one of the last pure-blood dragon shape- shifters-and ruler of a dying race, the Dragonstar clan. It falls to him to protect his people and their ancient magic. But he has one important duty: to provide an heir...

Like all dragons, Dylan, who has a dark, rampant sexual appetite, can only procreate with his destined mate-for whom he's searched for the last five hundred years. But his quest is delayed when a disease sweeps through the Dragonstars, and Dylan must venture to the human world to find a cure. He tracks down bio-chemist Phoebe Quillum, never imagining the beautiful scientist would be the mate he's been seeking. But even with the fate of the clan on their shoulders, Phoebe and Dylan are overcome by their sexual desire.

Their passion turns to something truer, but when Phoebe is kidnapped by Dylan's oldest enemy, he must risk everything for his love and his clan...

Dark Embers (A Dragon’s Heat novel) by Tessa Adams Personally Purchased Print Copy Rating: 4 Stars We all know dragons breathe fire, and this book scorched the page! I love stories about dragons. The hotter, sexier alphas the better…and shape shifting ones just do it for me. There have been several reviews discussing the amount of sex in this book—and there’s a lot of it—but Dark Embers is billed as the first book in an erotic paranormal series. So, if I’m reading an erotic novel, I’m expecting a lot of tow-curling sex scenes. As for the story itself, the premise was interesting and plausible. The characters had depth and moved the plot along at a satisfying pace. The cover is eye-catching and absolutely gorgeous. But a few issues kept this book from being a 5 star review.  Dylan’s slow “ah-hah, I’ve found my mate” moment seemed protracted and obvious as the reader knew immediately. Though Phoebe’s character is strong, she jumped into bed with Dylan waaay too fast considering her character development to that point. Lastly, there were several places in the story that dragged as the main thrust of the plot trailed off page in the background. Were these issues enough to pull me out of the story? No. Will they keep me from reading the next Dragon’s Heat novel? Absolutely not. In fact, I think I’ll call my local bookstore and see if they have Hidden Embers and Forbidden Embers, the next two in the series!

I love Paranormal Romances, Like J R Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood, Sherilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter's, Christine Feehan's Carpathians Dark Series...etc This Series is right up there with the greats in my Mind. Tessa Adams Is a wonderful writer. She gives the right amount of detail so u feel you are actually in the moment, or the place without overkill. u know the kind where u know every color of every rock,wall, whatnot & u fall asleep before u ever get to the good stuff...lol There is an Actual Story here. With Heart felt characters, Plenty of Romance, Drama, Amazing Action Scenes, and it has a LOT of HOT, Hot, Hot Steamy Love Scenes. Made me want a Dragon...m m m m. She writes with a wonderful since of humor which at times had me laughing out loud. The women are Strong in these books with believable roles..In this one a Scientist/Dr. It was amazing. I Loved this Book so much I read it in 24hrs, then Bought the 2nd one & had it read in 16 hrs....lol I have already Pre-ordered the 3rd and I am waiting on pins & needles til Oct 4th :D If you want a really great read in Paranormal Romance this will NOT let you down. ENJOY & hope this helps you decide :D

Great book. But gotta tell you, I wasnt all happy with the ending, he owed her a MAJOR apology for what he did to her in his anger and that really messed up the story for me and left a bad taste in my mouth over his character..he never apologized, didnt notice her bruises or split lip, say anything about his terrible treatment that left her devastated, it was almost like it never happened. He never did apologize. It was still a good book and would recommend it but that part of the book, what he did to her..not good. That was like a see you later thing for me, i wouldve high tailed it out of there. He took all his anger out on her and soured the whole relationship for me. Especially when no one else in the clan blamed her. No she definitely deserved him groveling at her feet. He hurt her physically and mentally without apology in anger, nope never good in a romance no matter what. The whole stor leading up to that part was great though.

First in the series and hooks you on the close knit group this dragon clan is. Great characters, mystery, and twists. Strong women that stand up to their man & stands with them.
