Lorenzo is an illusionist, deception is his business he’s also a Pyr, a dragon shapeshifter part of a brotherhood of dragons who protect the earth and it’s treasures. He’s been estranged from his brother dragons for a very long time finding the battles between them and their dark enemies the slayers barbaric and he chooses a life of solitude with his father his only close companion. During an eclipse that tells of a Pyr’s firestorm, his uniting with his destined mate it becomes all to clear to Lorenzo that this firestorm has his name on it and he only wants to sate it and move on. But the firestorm is leading him down a path he doesn’t want to journey, a path of commitment and duty and Lorenzo only has a duty to himself. In the middle of the show Cassie Redmond sees sparks flying from the hand of Lorenzo right to her and it’s causing her no amount of comfort when she’s experiencing lusty thoughts about the magician. It’s not her job as a paparazzi photographer that brought her here to the hot Vegas sun, but she’s not one to look an opportune gift horse in the mouth when her greatest opportunity is changing into a dragon right before her eyes. Gifted with an ancient spell Lorenzo has one last disappearing act to perform but the woman who attracts all his thoughts is making this decision harder than he would have thought and their firestorm is attracting more that just heat, it’s calling dragons both good and evil into their path and it’s giving Lorenzo and Cassie something that neither of them ever imagined possible, a future. But there’s evil in hiding wanting nothing more than to rid Lorenzo and Cassie of not only the child the firestorm will bring but their very lives as well. Can they win the war or will they be a victim of Flashfire. Deborah Cooke is a dragon master of a storyteller and her stories only get better as the series goes on and she brings us new and different dragons, the women they must love and the enemies that are trying to get rid of them. In this novel she takes us in a different direction with Lorenzo who’s a showman and secretive at the same time. Lorenzo fills the pages with enigmatic glory only rivaled by his mate Cassie and I did not stop turning pages until the firestorm had ended and the battle between good and evil was once again fought. The dialogue always reminds me a little of Europe and a little of an long ago time and place filled with knights and maidens but there is also something very contemporary about it too and whatever “it” is works very well. The love scenes are hotter than dragonfire both in intensity and in action and what in this novel starts as lust soon grows into something much more permanent as the romance is nurtured by it’s participants. As always she brought me much more than just a mere paranormal romance but a bit of legend, myth and a creed that gives honor to her characters as well. Deb, thank you so much for another trip to the sky courtesy of dragon wings and I as always look forward to my next journey there.

I was a little disappointed, I'd been waiting for Rafferty's turn for some time. But, after all it is her series, not mine.

Lorenzo has tried all of his life to deny what he sees as the barbaric nature of his kind, the Pyr Dragon Shifters. That all changes when, during his Las Vegas magic act, he experiences the unmistakable rush of his firestorm, in the person of Cassie Redmond, a celebrity photographer. Believing his best course is to satisfy the firestorm and move on, Lorenzo and Cassie share a mutually gratifying interlude and both expect to go on with their lives unchanged. However, they find themselves unable to stay away from each other, and when Cassie is threatened by a Slayer, Lorenzo gives in to his instinct to protect the woman he increasingly sees as his mate. Furthering the saga of the Pyr and the Slayers, Chen becomes an increasing threat to the Pyr and to humanity, with only the Pyr standing in his way. As always, the story is well written, with rounded, fully realized characters, and a story line that keeps you in suspense to the end. 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 splendid Dragonfire novel is full of illuminating and thrilling events that keeps readers on the edge of their seats throughout. Lorenzo and Cassie are two strong, spunky characters that grab reader’s attention and holds on tight and they have the firestorm sparking with more intense heat than ever before. Both Cassie and Lorenzo are bound and determine to not only ignore the blazing heat and electrifying chemistry between them, but they are also determined to discredit the other. The relationship is one battle after another which keeps the emotional turbulence at an all-time high but the firestorm ensures that the passion is also at an all-time high, so the heat intensifies between Lorenzo and Cassie ensuring that readers stay glued to the pages. The action is exhilarating in this fast pace plot that keeps the adrenaline pumping with lots of suspense and surprising twists that keeps everyone on edge. There is no way for readers to find a dull moment as the story enthralls readers with exciting battles between dragons and several fascinating, awe inspiring and death defying illusions. Lorenzo’s not the only illusionist in this story, so readers beware everything may not be as it seems as secrets are revealed. The Dragonfire series continues to fascinate and delight me with each new book, all of them are electrifying and sensual with passionate firestorms that compel readers to fall in love with the sexy characters.

This was such a great, well-written book. Cassie is tired of her career taking pictures of celebrities and is on vacation to Las Vegas. Lorenzo is a master illusionist who wants nothing to do with his Pyr nature. When Cassie and Lorenzo meet they are carried away by passion - and Lorenzo's firestorm. He intends to just move on but finds it's not that easy. This is book 8 in the Dragonfire Novels series. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and look forward to reading other books by this author.

As I've come to expect, a story from Ms Cooke is a must-read and this one didn't disappoint. Lorenzo was brought into the story in a previous firestorm reluctantly and maintained his detachment right till the end. Loved the story. However.... The publishing of the ebook was extremely disappointing. To the point that I nearly couldn't read it. There was no formatting at all, save chapter breaks. I could understand this low-level of work if it was self-published, a super quick publish or even an extremely small publishing house just breaking out... But it's not. They had plenty of time. Just because it was an ebook, doesn't mean we should get sub-par goods for our same money.
