    3.5 Stars
    This is my first read of Kira Brady’s work and I have to say that she has captured my interest in this world of Dragons and other Shifters.

    Set in the late 1800s in Seattle, a world of Shifters/Other beings living among humans but not necessarily in peace. A Bomb waiting to explode, the tension between the Drekar Dragons and Kivati (other) Shifters has worsen.

    Brand Haldor, a Drekar dragon has recently migrated from Scandinavia hoping for a new beginning and has found it with Kivati shifter, Alice Corbette. Unfortunately, this Romeo and Juliet story will have hell before getting their HEA and not without a tragic after math. Due to the forbidden love, the duel between the Drekar and Kivati had exploded to an even worse predicament then before. It's definitely a big set up for the upcoming novel Hearts of Darkness and it is actually well explained at the end of the book.

    The world building was heavy with information (in my opinion), but I’m pretty sure that it is all pertinent to the next book. The character build up was okay but it really is hard to get a good grasp of it being that it is a novella. And unfortunately, same goes for the romance. It was certainly too fast for my liking. I understood the instant attraction, however I felt like romance was not believable.

    On the plus side, Ms. Brady’s story is very promising. It has qualities I’d look for in a book. Alpha males, worthy H/h, a complex history and/or a good story line and with a regular length book, I'm expecting an epic romance.

    I am eager to delve in to the next book and see what Ms. Brady has in store for us.

    With a low page count, Kira Brady crams action and romance into every word. I adore the fast pace and while the romance struck quickly, so did the disgust in the townsfolk of Alice and Brand’s coupling. Just as soon as the two spend a moment together, they are thrusted into opposite sides of an ancient war between Shifters and Dragons.

    I liked Brand more than Alice, as we learn he has a troubled history, while her background is limited to being the daughter of the town’s leader. Norgard was the only minor character that stood out for me. He began the book with a BANG, literally. I’m hoping that he makes a future appearance in the soon to be released novel.

    The only part I hated about this novella was the length. I read it in one sitting. When I finished, I hoped for another hundred pages to read and find out what happened next, but I guess I’ll have to wait until the novel’s release in August.

    Hearts of Fire is Kara Brady's beautifully written prequel that

    Hearts of Fire is Kara Brady's beautifully written prequel that introduces readers to Brady's new Deadglass series, a supernatural world of shape-shifter. Hearts of Fire gives the history of how this war of hate all begun between the Kivati and Drekar race in Settle in the year 1889. Also, how the forbidden love of a Kivati woman for a Drekar man fuels the fire of hate even further between the two supernatural races. And this war is still waging between the Kivati and Drekar in present day Settle in Brady's first novel Hearts of Darkness.

    Alice is the eighteen year old daughter of the Kivati leader, Halian Corbette. Alice's father has moved the Kivati family to this new frontier of Settle to develop this land while the iron’s hot. But there’s someone else who wants the opportunities that Settle has to offer, Norgard the Drekar Regent. The Drekar's are the Kivati immortal enemy, and when Emory (Alice's brother) discovers that their greatest enemy is in Settle and that Alice has fallen in love with one, he swears he will kill every last one of them.

    Alice has met her destiny in the dark, dangerous, and gorgeous Brand, and she’s not shy about making her claims of Brand to her family. But how cruel can destiny be when the man she loves is her immortal enemy? Alice feels like it's time for peace between the Kivati and the Drekar's. She also believes that Brand and her love will be strong enough to bring this peace, but she never realizes how strong her brother's hate is for the Drekar race. Alice will have to choose between the man she loves and the brother she's loved all her life.

    Hearts of Fire is an immortal, racial war of hate between the supernatural Kivati and Drekar's with a beautiful, forbidden romance. I recommend Hearts of Fire as a captivating beginning to a steamy new paranormal series

    Enjoyable chick-lit

    It's a refreshing change to see not a single vampire (sparkly or not) or werewolf in sight in "Hearts of Fire".

    The novella is too short for anything more than a quick spin through a standard boy-meets-girl, obstacles intervene, boy-gets-girl plot, and there's one gaping plot hole that I found a little annoying. That said, Brady's writing is solid and I look forward to her next effort.
