Dark Flame by Caris Roane

Do you love alpha warriors haunted by dark pasts? Do vampires, shifters and fae make your night? Meet vampire Border Patrol Officer Robert Brannick...

Committed to the rule of law, Brannick falls hard for a beautiful fae woman who illegally seduces him in his dreams...

New York Times bestselling author, Caris Roane, presents DARK FLAME, the third book in the Flame Series. Brannick works with Juliet Tunney to help several human women escape the nightmare of Five Bridges. But something isn't right. Juliet acts as though she knows him really well, yet he's only met her once. Unless...the dreams he's been having about her aren't dreams at all. When a sensual dream surfaces in vivid images and sounds, he knows something's up with the beautiful fae woman from Revel Territory. And if what he suspects is true, Juliet has a lot to answer for.

Juliet fell hard for Brannick the night she first signed on to help out with his rescue operation. She even violated a serious Revel Territory law by invading his dreams. What she hadn't expected was how readily he took her up on her illegal dreamgliding offer. With her special fae abilities, she's been his secret lover for five months. Sworn to withhold the nature of their dream-relationship from Brannick's conscious mind, she faces the hard truth that she's in danger of losing him forever because she broke the law. Once the truth surfaces, will Brannick ever be able to forgive her?

This was the first book I read from this series. It offers a fresh, new approach to the paranormal world. I do think I'll need to read the first book of the series and continue in with the process. I hope you'll take a chance on these books as well.

Dark flame is the story of Brannick and Juliet. He is a vampire and one of the few beings fighting corruption and evil in five bridges. With the backing of his friends and trusted allies he has a small but dedicated organization trying to right wrongs in their corrupt world. Juliet is a fae alter and one of those trusted allies that Brannick brought on board to help. Her passion for wanting to do good and her fighting spirit made him trust her immediately. She is a beautiful, alluring fae woman but Brannick has old wounds that make him avoid relationships. Fate, a hasty decision in a moment of loneliness, and a powerful fae ability make the lines blur a bit. Despite his better judgment Brannick may just not have a choice. With a powerful enemy coming for her and only his fear holding him back, Brannick has to heal his old wounds. The pace is fast, the characters are great and you can't help but feel for them. With powerful foes and twists galore the story keeps you on the edge of your seat. My only complaints are that the dream gliding was kind of confusing and could have been explained better. And the whole split self aspect of the relationship was kind of weird. Otherwise, I liked it and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.

This book is the Third book in the Flame Series, it is a well written book and as always Caris had done an amazing job describing the world of Five Bridges as well as the characteristics and personalities of the characters. Even though this book is part of a series I feel that it could be read on it's own and you wouldn't be lost as to what was going on and around in the book. In this book you meet Border Patrol Officer Brannick, who is a Vampire, and a powerful Fae Juliet, she breaks the law in order to seduce Brannick who has to idea about. As they forge on together to find a missing Fae, Mary, Juliet is realizing that must tell Brannick what she has done, however, she fears losing him. Throughout the book each of them must face their own ordeals in order to move forward and bring some kind of peace into their world. I loved this book just like I like all of the books Caris has written so far and I look forward to the next installment of this series. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book 3 is so far my favorite. I liked the two main characters; their relationship and how they worked together made for a strong story. The emotional conflict was strong and real. The bad guy wasn't over done or came across as unbeatable, which was nice. He was real and not over dramatic. I liked the addition of the Fae to the series. The first two books dealt with vampires and witches, so brining in a new species was a fresh change. Overall an enjoyable read. The world of Five Bridges continues to be a compelling setting for the story line and I am getting the feeling that due to the setting, this series might be better than the Blood Rose series.

I am loving these books!! The world is so intriguing, it's like ours but a little different. And the characters are so well written it's like I've known them my whole life and I miss them once the book is over. The best part is that these could be stand alone books, a character or two might show up or be talked about but it's nothing that leaves you confused or anything. It would make you wonder about their story but that's about it. I received a copy from the author for an honest review.

Juliet Tunney is helping make Five Bridges a better place. She's an alter fae who is helping human woman escape their imprisonment in the sex clubs. She is working with Border Patrol Officer Robert Brannick. He lost his family to the Flame drugs and the lawlessness. This drug turned him into a vampire. He was mad with grief. Now this is his way of easing his pain. Juliet is in love with him, but he doesn't know that in her dream glide they are lovers. What happens now that they are working closely together? Juliet is a wonderful woman. She cares for Brannick and wants to help him, but she knows that she will loose him when he finds that she entered his dreams. As they grow closer, she lives in fear. Robert is guilt ridden by his loss. He can't put the past behind him. He doesn't want to love anyone because he may be hurt again. These two are perfect together. They compliment each other and mingle their powers. I wanted them to be partners and lovers forever. Caris Roane has written a fast-paced and suspenseful story filled with interesting characters. I was intrigued by Fergus. I hope that will learning more about him. I'm enjoying The Flame Series and am looking forward to many more adventures.

This is book three of the series, and the best one so far. It was easier to get into this story overall, but I'd recommend reading at least one of the first two books before picking this one up. The main characters are a good pairing, their strengths and faults making their relationship believable. Some good strong female characters once again, which is always great to see.

The last two books in the series it was a Vampire with a Witch, this time we introduce the Fae. Although reading the first two books are a little helpful to get the lay of the land, it's not necessary to read Dark Flame. It's easily read as a stand-alone story. So the story ... this whole series has the hot, hot, hot sex scenes. Got some new variables that go with the Fae, but in some spots, get me a fan. For the most part it's part of the story and flows nicely and goes to the thoughts of actions of the characters. The whole story moves along at a nice pace as we head towards the HEA. You know they happen, it is how the characters get there that gives meaning to the stories. I've enjoyed every one of Ms. Roane's stories, no matter which series it is and the 'world' created will keep your interest as you move through the story towards the HEA. I'm looking forward to book #4, because it doesn't have a vamp as the hero, we get to delve into the shifter end of Five Bridges. After this one, you can go back and catch the other two stories to get some additional background. Somewhere along the line, all the characters will end up together, so might as well learn how their story begins.

Copy gifted for an honest review. Again Roane pairs an unlikely couple with romantic intent. Robert Brannick is a Border Patrol Officer turned vampire. Juliet Tunney is a fae woman with the gift to travel through dreams,. Through their loneliness and past tragedy their longings are soothed by meeting in the dreamglides. Secret is that Robert is not aware of them. Adventure and love transpire between these two when an enemy plots to kidnap Juliet and make her a slave in his world of drugs and fantasy. This is the third book in this series but could be read as a stand alone even though characters in the first two books make an appearance.

Love this world and its characters! This is the third book in the Flame series... Here we learn more about Vampire Border Patrol Officer Robert Brannick and meet a fae woman named Juliet. You have a strong attraction between the two that evolves from the dreamglide to real life, but Brannick fights it. He is torn in two. I love this book! The journey these two take was something to see. They battle the evil that is in Five Bridges along with characters we have seen before, while trying to sort out their feelings. I really enjoyed seeing the growth of the hero and heroine. Such a wonderful story. Gives you a hint at the next book. I am truly looking forward to seeing what comes next! *copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.

Hold onto your ereaders as we travel again to the Five Bridges world. The land where shifters, fae, vampire, witches and dead-talkers are separated from the human population, and themselves; co-operation between the species is not done. However, things are changing in Five Bridges, as some of the inhabitants start to work together against the drug and sex trade. In Dark Flame, we meet Juliet and Brannick, both had nasty conversions into alter beings, but Brannick especially. Border patrol officer Brannick is a vampire, working underground to save human women and send them back to Arizona. Fae Juliet signed on to help in the one meeting in person they had. When they meet in person again, Brannick is floored by the passionate scenes he's imagining about Juliet. With dreamslide as one of the fae's powers, Juliet is terrified Brannick will remember everything about the last five months. He's so invested in the rule of law, and she's broken it...but who could blame her? In a high action adventure, one of the powers that be in Revel is determined to have Juliet at any cost. As we travel deeper into the mire of Revel Territory, the added world-building is smoothly worked into the story, much to my delight. With a return of some old friends and some interesting twists, Dark Flame is an extremely fluid, well-written story. Can't wait for Fergus' story! (Gifted a copy for independent review)

** Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review** Brannick and Juliet – they are lovers in dreams. But is their love real, or an illusion? In Dark Flame, Book Three of the Flame Series, Caris Roane introduces us to a handsome vampire and a beautiful fae who have been given a second chance at love. But will they be strong enough, and courageous enough, to follow their dreams?

this is the third book in this new series and once again a tremendous read. It was a good romantic tale and a very hot and steamy read but also had a deeper story - the start of a clean up in the five realms. I loved the dreamgliding angle that was a new one for me. Cannot wait for book 4 am hoping it will be fergus story. "This book was gifted in exchange for an honest review". A must read.

Review copy received. Book 3 in the series finds the Five Bridges world growing on me as the characters start coming together with greater and greater plans to move their world from drug infest, post-apocalypse style wasteland to a thriving society. While I enjoyed books 1 and 2, book 3 starts showing the greater picture and possibilities to me for this world. I look forward to what comes next.

Gifted copy for honest review. Dark Flame was a great read. I really enjoyed the characters, Brannick and Juliet, and their story was awesome. They both learn how to overcome their past and that they can love again. I can't wait for the next one in this series

This is another 5 Star "alter" world book. I think Brannick and Juliet are my favorite characters so far. The story line captured me from the beginning. Dreamglide sex...I just had to write that... It was an awesome concept. I read this book in one sitting and could not put it down. Now I am anxiously waiting for the next book and I am hoping it will be Fergus (a shifter, who was in the prior book as well). Definitely a must read series. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Again Ms. Roane writes an exceptional story of a "alter" world and the remarkable species that inhabit it. The border patrol who fight wrong as well as corruption in their own ranks and the strong faithful women who have to struggle to make these fighters understand their worth and discover love! Brannick and Julia are extraordinary in their desire and passionate in their struggles...their humor, their steadfastness in their fight for justice make "5 Bridges" and its desperation a world only the very strong can survive. Ms. Roane's ability to capture their surroundings, their passion and their compassion in vivid detail make you take notice! Love this series, bring on the shifters!!
