Until recently Andros was a severely disabled geek working for STORM. Now he’s a powerful shape-shifting dragon. Still a geek, though.
Meeting university professor Faye came as a shock, since they were sharing the same air space at the time. But it didn’t take long to come to terms with that and each other in a convenient hotel room. Hot, fast, rampant sex is just what Andros needs. Until he wakes up and discovers what else she’s taken from him.
Tangling with her between the sheets, against her desk, pretty much anywhere he can have her, takes energy Andros now has in abundance. But he won’t let his emotions follow. Not this side of – oh, hell.
Faye never met anyone in her long life as exciting as Andros. But he works for STORM, Faye’s enemy. She’s never had anyone so young, either. But she can’t resist his strength, his determination – or his ripped body.
Together they must hunt down a mutual enemy, but to defeat him they have to come to terms with what they are, were and will become.

Reviewed by Crystal Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book When I first started reading Shifting Heat, I just couldn’t get into it. It started out pretty slow and I was wondering how I would ever get through the book. I’m glad that I stayed with it though because it started picking up and turned into a pretty good book The story started with Faye using a fake name and trying to find a person that worked for STORM. It didn’t say why she wanted to find him or what she was going to do once she did. Mention was made that she was a dragon-shifter and they have to shift once every month. The story picked up when you find out why she wants to find someone that worked for STORM and how she needs the I.D. bracelet of someone working there. Andros was the lucky one that Faye picked. He was a person that I felt had gone through a lot. He had suffered from MS all his life and it was killing him – so he got converted into a dragon-shifter. But to catch a killer and to find out who all is behind the killings of shapeshifters, Andros has to turn back into the cripple that he was. It showed how much he was in love with Faye that he would go through anything to help save her. The author did a great job of showing us the pain that Andros went through every day of his life. You get to better understand what goes through someone’s mind when they feel that today just might be their last day to live. A twist of this book was showing how people you trust just might be your enemy and some people that you think are your enemy just might be there to save you. There was just so many things going on in this book and it could get a little confusing for some people. The author had a great plot to the story and built up her characters well. She put a new spin on vampires as well as a new way of being able to convert someone. You really have to read this book if you want to find out what I’m talking about. I don’t want to give anything away. So give this book a chance and have a great time reading it!
Andros spent his whole life fighting an illness, just to go back to being disabled, but Andros is willing to do anything to save Faye, the woman he has fallen for. The dedication Andros displays in this story is astounding. Anyone who has read previous stories will recognize Andros, but in this story, he is definitely new and improved. It really displayed who he is other than the disabled little brother of Ania. Faye's character was one I absolutely adored even if I am a bit puzzled by her. At some moments in the story, I had to wonder how she did not see the obvious. She was an extremely intelligent woman, but her emotions really clouded her judgment at times. I am not sure if that was a quality that the author intended to have, or if it just happened. With that said, Faye had an inner strength that would challenge the most alpha male within any story. One of her strongest attributes was to realize when she is wrong and to tried her best to correct her mistakes. She is a female all of us could relate to, in one way or another, and wants to be like in other ways. This series has always captivated me with its conflicts. Author Lynne Connolly has always had a way of making the antagonistic conflict evident on one aspect and yet completely obscure in other ways. It's a quality that has always really intrigued me and I find it adds a depth to the story. This book continues that tradition and once again it absolutely amazed me. The twist she incorporated was absolutely puzzling and exciting and kept me interested. At the end of this story, I found myself wanting more. This is a quality that keeps an author in business and anyone who reads this story will be happy to keep Author Lynne Connolly in business for a long time. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews
