Overview

A warrior, a maiden…and a passion that could set the whole world aflame.

Dragon Knights, Book 7

Despite the fact he is the largest of his half-dragon brothers and better suited to fighting, Hugh has been sent on an undercover mission. Forced to stay in human form, he must discover if the land of Helios is truly the Draconian ally it pretends, or something more sinister.

When he witnesses injustice in the form of a misshapen baby gryphon kicked out into the cold, he cannot remain in the shadows and watch the child suffer. All he can hope for is that his act of kindness will go unnoticed so his mission can continue.

But someone does notice. When Lera cautiously approaches Hugh, she is drawn to his strange, foreign magic. She is entranced by its irresistible allure—until assassins come calling and reveal her true identity.

She is Valeria, queen of Helios, Keeper of the Flame. And she has been betrayed. Together they must risk everything to uncover the traitors and reforge the alliance between their lands. Yet beneath their blazing passion, both are still keeping secrets. Secrets that the Sacred Flame will reveal—if their love survives its cleansing fire.

Warning: When a dragon prince and a Flame Keeper come together, the conflagration is definitely too hot to handle!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I have been enjoying this series quite a bit. There’s a lot that D’Arc infuses into this series that takes dragons onto a whole other level. The worldbuilding is unique and executed well and the writing is always stellar.”
—Under the Covers Book Blog on Keeper of the Flame

“Ms. D’Arc creates characters that inspire dreams of love and romance in the most jaded reader. Her world building skills are absolutely the best.”
—Coffee Time Romance on Prince of Spies

“I would HIGHLY recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a delightful foray into the realm of dragons, knights, and fantasy. It is by far one of the best series this reader has ever had the pleasure of reading.”

    Much of what I enjoyed about this series is still very much present in this book. But after seven books, I’m looking for something different and new. ~ Under the Covers

    KEEPER OF THE FLAME is book 7 in the Dragon Knights series. I have been enjoying this series quite a bit. There’s a lot that D’Arc infuses into this series that takes dragons onto a whole other level. The worldbuilding is unique and executed well and the writing is always stellar. However, for this particular book, I find myself conflicted.

    I’m torn on this book. The reasons why I loved the other books in the series are the same reasons why I didn’t enjoy this book so much. I felt that the same equation was applied to this book as the author has done with all the others and the results are the same. This book felt too similar in style to the others in the series that nothing felt new to me as a loyal reader. That being said, I found that I got tired of this one easily.

    That is not to say that the author tried to bring something different to the series. For example, the heroine is a Flame Keeper, the first we’ve seen in the series. The gryphon is introduced and while I was initially intrigued by this concept, I found that the integration of this species seemed translucent and not fully formed. The author wanted or perhaps needed something unique to the story, so she added gryphons but it didn’t resonate with me because it’s become such a trend in the series. Whenever there is a rare species or a rare ability, either the hero or heroine has the ability or stems from that unknown species. As a result, it has become predictable and no longer new and entertaining after seven books.

    The same goes for the romance. It’s a textbook romance and while I was very pleased with the way the author was able to integrate threesomes in the series, the romances have been merely mediocre as of late.

    So you can see why I’m a little conflicted. Much of what I enjoyed about this series is still very much present in this book. But after seven books, I’m looking for something different and new. The predictable plot lines and textbook romances aren’t doing it for me anymore and I need something new and fresh to take away from it all.

    AMAZING!!!!

    I LOVE this whole series! This is one of the best dragon/supernatural/paranormal/royalty/romance stories/series that I have ever read. I am a huge fan of Bianca D'arc. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors to read. I would highly recommend reading this, but, in order to appreciate everything, I think you need to read the series from the beginning (Maiden Flight Bk.1).
