Rurik: A Royal Dragon Romance (Brothers of Ash and Fire, #3) by Lauren Smith

The huntress becomes the hunted.

Charlotte MacQueen is tired of being told what to do. Stay in school. Don't hunt dragons. Don't have sex. Blah, blah, blah. Her overbearing brothers mean well, but they are seriously killing her social life. Life as chemist is about as exciting as watching water boil, so for one night, Charlotte is going to walk on the wild side. And to top it off, she's going to bag her own dragon and show her brothers once and for all she's more than their baby sister. She just never expected to fall for a dragon.

The player gets played.

Rurik Barinov his days are spent defending his family's homeland from rival dragon clans. His nights, deliciously spent indulging in carnal pleasures of the flesh, a hoard of women available at the nod of his head. Drinking, dancing, and sex keep his hot-blooded warrior dragon in check—but just barely. The last thing he wanted was love…until she walked in the club— living, breathing sex poured into a tight, red dress. With one kiss, and one look into her vulnerable eyes, he's lost. Now his impenetrable heart has been, well, penetrated, making him vulnerable. And the worst part? She's the little sister to his sworn enemies.

When Charlotte becomes a pawn against Rurik in a ruthless dragon clan-war, he'll have to work with her brothers (yes, the dragon hunters) to save her. Unless they kill him first.

Third story, third brother. This was another fun one. I love Rurik's dedication to his family duties, but watching him struggle against his desires for Charlotte made it very interesting. Charlotte's need to prove herself kept me praying for her. Despite enemies on all sides, their love blossoms, and I fell in love along with them. This is my unsolicited review.

Rurik by Lauren Smith is book Three in the "Brothers of Ash and Fire" series. This is the story of Rurik Barinov and Charlotte MacQueen. I have read (and loved) the previous book in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book if you choose to do so. After Charlotte parents died her two brothers Damien and Jason, took over the care of her and they became very protective of her. Not letting her be a part of the family business of hunting dragons and the Brotherhood. But Charlotte wants to prove herself to her brothers and sneaks off to Moscow to try to meet Rurik. None of the others have been able to get close to him. Charlotte is a biochemist and not used to be a seductive women of the world but she catches Rurik's eye. But they both find an attraction and feelings are starting to develop. Rurik has always been the guard and fighter for the family can Charlotte weaken him from that? I have been crazy about this series and this book was just great! Loved it! I can never get enough of Ms. Smith's writing!

Can a fierce dragon shifter and a woman close to the Brotherhood who hunts them ever attract? Not usually but in this paranormal story filled with suspense, conflicted emotions and intense feelings, it is possible. Rurik, the protector of his family of dragon shifters, is also the strongest and fiercest in battle. Charlotte McQueen, sister of the Brotherhood leader, travels to Russia to prove to her brothers she deserves to be one of them. Meeting up with Rurik, turns her upside down because of the intense attraction which quickly spirals out of control. There are many forces at work in this story and it will keep you turning the pages to see what the outcome will be. Lauren Smith takes you through this third book in the Brothers of Ash and Fire series as only she can do... With great characters and descriptions that take you into another world!

RURIK starts with a wonderful opening sequence, which sets the pace for the whole story. Charlotte MacQueen is all dolled up to seduce a dragon shifter: Rurik, the Barinov brother with a sexy biker look. Charlotte’s two older brothers, Damien and Jason, would be furious if they knew that she was alone in Russia. Charlotte is a biochemist and she has something she wants to try out; the only other person who knows is her friend Meg, a hunter with the Brotherhood of the Blood Moon. Charlotte, at first, only wants to have a look at Rurik, but at the club, some men bother her, and Rurik comes to her rescue, and things escalate from there. Poor Charlotte and her overprotective, stubborn brothers, Damien and Jason! RURIK has one of the best examples of instalust working perfectly; it’s done rather subtly, and it’s convincing. This book is action-packed, there’s a lot going on, but it’s all well balanced and perfectly paced. It is also, in my opinion, the most romantic of the Brothers of Ash and Fire series. Rurik is totally swoonworthy! And the chemistry between these two! Charlotte is a bit out of her element; she is not a hunter, but she can defend herself when she had to, and in one case I thought it was quite ingenious and pretty funny; in another, daring and brave. There were a lot of fascinating historical details, and the paranormal elements were stunning. There were several conflicts, all realistically handled and satisfactorily resolved. But watch out for that Jason MacQueen; boy, is he ever a loose cannon! I loved the little wink to a classic French movie with the name of a secondary character! As always, Lauren Smith’s prose is gorgeous and fluid, the dialogues spot-on, and there is a wonderful surprise at the end of the book! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I give 4 ½ stars
