Overview

Her kiss could be his doom…

When dragon-shifter Kristofer feels his firestorm ignite, he eagerly follows its spark to his destined mate. To his surprise, the heat leads him to a Valkyrie intent on claiming his soul. Even so, Kristofer has never met a woman as alluring as the fierce warrior before him. Trusting in the firestorm, he must convince her to fight with him instead of against him.

Trading the life of a dragon shifter for that of her sister Valkyrie is an easy choice for Bree…until she meets Kristofer. Experience taught her that dragons are evil, but in him she sees a bold and noble warrior. Finding his confidence as irresistible as his touch, Bree fears she is being tricked into abandoning her sister. But how can she take Kristofer’s life when his very presence makes her burn with desire?

When they’re compelled to join forces, Kristofer seizes the chance to convince Bree that they’re stronger together. Yet as a sinister plan unfolds, an ancient dragon is roused from his slumber. With danger closing in, can Kristofer convince Bree to surrender her immortality for their forbidden love? Or will Bree’s distrust of dragons prove justified?

Dragon’s Kiss tells the story of Kristopher, a Pyr dragon shifter and Valkyrie Bree his (maybe?) firestorm soulmate. Tricked into entering Fae by Maeve, an evil queen bent on exterminating all “aberrations” (any creature other than Fae or humans), Bree will do anything to save her kidnapped sister Kara. Following Bree into Fae, Kristopher has the dual quest to save Bree and also to convince her that she is his destined soulmate. With the assistance of his fellow Pyr, Kristopher and Bree confront that danger together and face an even bigger threat in the form of an ancient dragon apparently reanimated. Ms. Cooke builds amazing worlds, populated by both evil and sympathetic characters who are fleshed out convincingly. I suggest reading the novella “Maeve’s Book of Beasts” for the backstory before reading this. Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This was an excellent, well-written book. I could not put it down and can't wait to read the next book in the series. Bree is amazing, and I loved Kristofer's absolute faith in the firestorm. These two were great for each other, and I enjoyed this book so much. I highly recommend it.

EPIC Fantasy Romance! This series is AWESOME. It's on par with the big romance Urban Fantasy series' that we all know. I was blown away by the hugeness of the world Deb has created and the rich characters that inhabit this complex story. Part of this is because of the previous series that this is a spin-off of that was constrained by publishers. Deb has gone indie and it's to the readers benefit! I can't wait to dig into the next story! Dragon-shifter Kristofer Anderson is visiting his friends in Manhattan and drawn to the bar Bones where the dragon shifters find out about The Others-paranormal creatures. Maeve, the Fae Queen has a plan to eradicate all The Others seeing them as an abomination of pure creatures. While there he sees his firestorm knowing it signals his mate through a crack in the wall - a portal. His friends help to open the portal and he and 2 friends, Rhys & Hadrian go with him. Theo and the bartender, who knows way too much, follow to help them get home. And so our adventure of kidnapping, discovering love and epic adventure begins. I enjoyed their journey to escape Maeve's traps and the path to their forever together. I also can't wait to see how the various members of the Others come together to defeat Maeve and bring home Theo & the bartender. What will become of young Kade who's left his fellow dragon shifters? There is so much to discover in this story but I highly advise reading the short stories Coven of Mercy and An Elegy for Melusine before beginning this book. It fills in backstory of key characters. Maeve's Book Of Beasts is a prequel to this series and explains what all the conflict is about. I also have to go back and read the previous Dragonfire series when I carve out some time. These are more romance and less fantasy but fill out the dragon shifter characters that appear in this series. I've grown hungry to know all the stories of this fabulous world. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

4.5 stars- DRAGON’S KISS is the first full-length instalment in Deborah Cooke’s adult DRAGONFATE paranormal/fantasy / mythological romance series-a spin off from the author’s Dragonfire series. This is dragon shifter Kristofer, and Valkyrie Bree’s story line. DRAGON’S KISS can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading the prequel and introductory novella MAEVE’S BOOK OF BEASTS for backstory. Told from several third person perspectives including Kristofer and Bree DRAGON’S KISS follows in the aftermath of the Dragon’s Tail War wherein the Pyr defeated the Slayers only to face a new foe in the guise of Maeve, the Dark Queen of the Fae. Maeve believes shifters and vampires, any specie that is half-human, half-mythological creature are abominations, impure creatures, tainted beings, and therefore must be annihilated and destroyed leaving only the Fae and human beings to walk the earth. In order to begin her methodical destruction of the dragons, Maeve ‘kidnaps’ Kara, a Valkyrie, knowing her sister will do anything to save Kara’s life. Enter Bree, aka Sigrdrifa, who will make a deal with Maeve in order to free her sister from the eternal dance with the Fae. Valkyries believes dragons are the most vilest creatures to have ever walked the earth, and therefore, any survivors must be exterminated, and Maeve will use this knowledge to her advantage by manipulating a firestorm, a call to mate, between Bree and Kristofer, a peridot and gold dragon who has been searching for his firestorm all of his life. But things don’t go according to plan when Maeve demands more from our couple forcing Bree and Kristofer to work together in an effort to save Kara, and dragonkind. Kristofer believes their firestorm is real, and not directed by Magick, and therefore, Bree struggles with their ‘unnatural’ attraction, an attraction that will develop into something more. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters including dragons, vampires, Fae, and Valkyrie, as well as the return of several of Deborah’s dragons and characters from the Dragonfire and its’ interconnected series and stories including Rafferty and Melissa, Erik, the leader of the Pyr; Drake, Caleb and Micah . We are introduced to Alasdair, Kade, Theo, Rhys, and Hadrian. With the introduction of the ‘sleeping’ dragon warriors, protected by Eithne, there is the possibility of another spin off series. Rhys’ story is next in Dragon’s Heart. DRAGON’S KISS is a detailed exposition of information and history connecting Norse mythology with a modern day supernatural world. With the revelation of other paranormal creatures including Valkyrie, vampires, Fae and more, the dragons find themselves no longer the oldest or most powerful beings on the planet but one of many. The enchanting premise is fascinating and intense; the characters are numerous and dynamic; the romance is passionate and seductive. DRAGON’S KISS is an imaginative take of Norse mythology and paranormal romance.
