I had been looking for a good dragon series since finishing G.A. Akin's delightful series. I couldn't find one with her particular hilarious sense of humor, but Deborah Cooke's intricate story lines and detailed characters made up for that in spades. The thing I like best about Cooke's series is that we don't loose her characters from book to book. They are not just mentioned, we are able to see how their lives and their relationships have progressed, including in some cases even their children's development. That is so unusual, for me it is a real kick! I love this series. The other great thing for me is that I came upon this writer after she had added seven books to the series. There is absolutely nothing I enjoy more about reading a story than being able to move from one book to the next without having to wait. Needless to say, I am having a ball! My advice to the like minded-join the party.

Pyr Rafferty Powell and his enemy Slayer Magnus Montmorency are in a death struggle. Rafferty vows this is the last time as he searches for Magnus. However, Rafferty is taken aback when he observes a mortal female break into the home of his adversary. In 2010 in DC, as she visits the morgue human reporter Melissa Smith is irate with a need for vengeance against Magnus the arms dealer. She believes he arranged for the murder of her source Daphne. However, Melissa is taken aback when she observes two dragons in mortal combat as Magnus and Rafferty battle one another. As she takes photos of the fight, her arrival and subsequent touch liberate Rafferty's Firestorm, of which the fire is the ancient darkfire. The sixth Dragonfire "Kiss" romantic urban paranormal continues the countdown war between the dragon shifting species the human protector Pyrs and the human (and Pyr) genocidal Slayers. The action-packed storyline grips the audience from the first coin exchange and never slows down as the fight heats up between the adversaries while the human turns the linear combat into a triangle. Although newcomers would be better off reading the previous entries (see Winter Kiss and Whisper Kiss), fans will relish Rafferty finding his muse. Harriet Klausner

The one thing that Rafferty Powell longs for is his firestorm, but when it comes it comes with an ancient omen, darkfire, an omen of change. The question is will that change be for the better or the worse. Melissa Smith is used to disappointments but she's vowed to rise once again like the phoenix from the ashes, only it's not a phoenix that she sees but dragons, honest to God fire breathing dragons and as she's taking photos she tells herself what any self respecting journalist thinks, a picture is worth a thousand words. But she and Rafferty have much to do because with the darkfire comes the uncertainty of not only their future but the future of the entire planet. Deborah Cooke can tell a story, let's say a story about fire breathing, shape-shifting dragon people and have her audience not only believe her but want one for themselves. Okay that was me talking. She gives us story lines that comes straight from Marvel comics or from the pages of an Arthurian legend , but then she takes it one step further, she gives them heart and soul and makes it a romance to boot. Now if her story line is over the top how could you possible describe the characters, well that's the easy part, they're Awesome, Stupendous, and best of all handsome devils, uh I mean dragons. The main characters in this episode of the life and times of the Pyr. Rafferty and Melissa make a perfect pair and unlike some of the previous firestorms we've witnessed they don't try to avoid or negate it, in fact they jump in with both feet and darn the consequences and consequences there are. The romance is almost painful to watch because these two really deserve their Happy Ever After and there's so much against them, but when fate prevails you'll be cheering along with the others while drying your tears of joy. The love scenes are, well they're as hot as the fire the dragons breathe, it's lusty and sexy and earthy and yeah you'll need to lower the thermostat to get through it. If this is your first dragon experience, have no fear this reads pretty well on it's own, but then do yourself a huge favor and get the rest, find out where they came from and in the process you'll find out where they're going as well. Don't wait until it comes out in May, pre-order it now. You won't be sorry.

Rafferty’s story is a pulse pounding, gritty story that was well worth the wait. Rafferty has been longing for his firestorm for a very long time, but it seems that the great wyvern has something special in store for him and readers can’t help but be enthralled with his firestorm. Melissa is trouble with a capital T and her quest for knowledge is equally as fierce as the need to tell the world which adds a special kind of tension to the fires burning between Rafferty and her. The chemistry between them sizzles with an unmistakable electrical current and the romance is just as suspenseful as the plot which keeps readers glued to the pages with an intense need to know every last detail. The plot is fast paced and full of chaos as the Darkfire reigns supreme over the Pyr with lots of thrilling suspense, adrenaline pumping excitement and of course the evil machinations of the slayers but this story also has quite a few twists that really add to the delight of this story. These twists come in the form of emotional chaos as well as physical chaos, rule breaking and world ending threats that invokes strong emotions and a ‘hold your breath’ in expectation feelings which guarantee that readers remain glued to the pages of this exhilarating read.

Melissa Smith runs into Rafferty Powell when they are both sneaking around Magnus Montmorency’s house. Melissa is planning to steal a book containing incriminating evidence on the man who murdered her friend, Rafferty intends to finish his blood feud with Magnus. When Melissa’s life is threatened by Magnus, Rafferty steps in to protect her. Melissa, ever the reporter, exposes the existence of the dragons to the general public, which completely changes the narrative. Once they realize that they both want Magnus dead, they decide to work together, but their inability to quench the firestorm between them complicates matters. Excellent story, with twists and turns I didn’t see coming, I can’t wait to see where this story arc takes us! A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

This was an excellent, well-written book. Melissa is determined to face life without fears, and plans to bring Marcus to justice for his role in the death of a friend of hers. Rafferty has challenged Marcus to a fight to the death. Melissa and Rafferty cross paths and are not expecting the incredible heat they discover between them. This book is #7 in the Dragonfire Novels series. I enjoyed this book very much and can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
