Hidden Embers by Tessa Adams is the second book in her Dragon’s Heat series, stories about a clan of dragon shifters. I did not read the first book and can’t say that I felt lost or confused at all. But I did feel as though I may have felt more for the clan and their current situation if I had witnessed it from its beginning. All this to say if you are planning on giving this series a try, I would start at book one.
Quinn is the clan’s main healer...more
But the way this book starts out is how I wish more romances would, instead of stringing the reader along until the hero and heroine finally come together. Now, th...more

Paranormal Romance -April 5th, 2011
Hidden Embers is the second in Tessa Adams's dragon series about powerful dragon shifters who hide from humankind. Although part of a series, it can easily be read by itself.
The Dragonstar clan has always been a powerful group of dragon shifters but other clans have been jealous of their wealth and status. Now their clan is being attacked from within. As an insidious and mysterious disease is slowly killing them one by one....more
The second book in this series had more plot going for it than the first book. This is Quinn's story, and it tells of his struggle to find a cure for the virus that is quickly driving his clan to extinction. Neither he nor Phoebe are any closer to a solution, so she decides it's time to bring in another expert and her close friend, who works for the CDC, Dr. Jasmine Kane. When Quinn's younger brother falls victim to the illness, he leaves the clan to escape his pain. His retreat takes him to a b...more
Hidden Embers is the second novel in the Dragon's Heat series. This is the first book that I've read in the series but the plot was not difficult to follow.
Quinn Maguire has seen too much death strike his clan and his family. Grieving over the death of his brother, Quinn is looking for a way to forget. A brilliant doctor, he has not been able to fight the virus that is slowly taking out members of the Dragonstar clan. Quinn feels like a failure and needs to drown his sorrows. While tryi...more
Her writing is spot-on, funny, and exciting. I even had to look up two words - that never happens to me because I'm a word whore. I didn't know that there were still words in the English language that had completely escaped my notice.
At any rate, Jazz and Quinn had amazing chemistry - both in and out of the bedroom. He was the ultimate tortured alpha male. Domineering, in control of himself alwa...more
First off, I really did not relate to the h at all. And to be honest, I'm tired of the whole "I've had a horrible childhood" being used as an excuse to be a raging bitch (or asshat). There are a lot of people in this world with crappy childhoods and perfectly normal attitudes toward life.
As I said, I had issues with the h. She was more than willing to use the H for sex, but would turn on him and become a raging bitch at the very hint of his having feelings for her. He had...more

We pick up a couple of months after the first book and the Dragonstar clan is still being picked off one by one by the horrible disease they cannot seem to get ahead of. Since they are rapidly running out of...more
The story line continued from the first book, but it did it in such a way that the reader did not feel as though they were wading through the same water as before. It never leaves...more

The whole "All men are out to cause me pain and anguish" spiel got old real fast in this book. I mean seriously Quinn is nothing but nice to her the entire book, Quinn was nicer to Jasmine than Dyla...more
Phoebe's friend, Dr Jasmine Kane, is brought in to help figure it out. But before she gets to clan lands she has a mighty interesting one night stand with, you guessed it, Quinn. When Quinn wakes the morning after it is to find out that he has mated with Jazz, who has skipped out without leaving any forwarding information.
I'll be honest, I don't know if I liked Jasmine at first. Something about her grated at me. Eventually she redeemed herself, but I must admit- it didn't happen until almost the end.
Quinn's one of those good guys. He was a good guy in the first book and he remained one throughout this.
My only quibble with the story was with how I expected more intrigue and a lot more ba...more
From the start a had a suspicion who the traitor was in the clan and I was right. It was really sad that she betrayed her entire family for nothing. She really got less th...more

I really enjoyed this book from the first to the last line. Both Jazz and Quinn are so complex, tortured souls but feeling so deeply, their mating was totally perfect. Even the quickness of it, seeing how passionate they both feel.
I think this book is even better than the first as you are left guessing about a lot of things, whereas in the first, you could figure it out pretty easily. Here, you get from surprise to surprise, tears to laugh.
Now let´s see Logan´s story :)
