Soulfire (Nightwing #1)
Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.
As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound t ...more
I’m a big fan of UF/PNR with erotic tendencies. When there is the added component of *sexy times* I’m all over it. The great thing about this first installment of the NIghtwing series is that it is not very long. There is just enough to give you a glimpse of this world and a taste of the culture and the idea of the series without committing to 300+ pages. Everything in this novel is self-contained so if you love it great there ...more
Meh. The H and h were barely together in this book. Didn't feel much of anything for them as a couple. Only thing going for the h seemed to be her gorgeous looks. She seemed spunky at first, but really isn't. She is cowed by and submissive to her father and brother. Wish she hadn't been a virgin. Also, I wasn't as happy with the concept of "soulfire" since it is only described as making the h feel amazing, but no word on whether or not it does anything to the hero. It seems to just go o ...more
This book went above and beyond my expectations! Generally the stories about dragons have never been on my radar but after finishing this one, Lucius Nightwing changed my whole perspective.
This is the story of Lucius Nightwing, the eldest son of the most powerful Morgon (half human, half dragon) clan, and Jessen Cade, the daughter of the most affluent human family. Jessen’s father hated the Morgons like poison, so this is where the story begins—a forbidden love between two d ...more
These are just some of the descriptive words that come to mind when I think of Soulfire by the amazing Juliette Cross.
I quickly found myself falling into this imaginative world of where humans and dragon-hybrids, called Morgons, co-exist, teetering on tensions fuelled by indifference and hate. Yet, against all protocol and proprieties, one young woman, Jessen Cade, challenges it all. Defying years of servitude and boundaries forced upon her b ...more
I do hope you enjoy this fantasy world and will tag along to see what happens in the next novel series, beginning with WAKI ...more
The worldbuilding about dragons and humans is interesting yet never overpowering. The H takes a while to get that the h is his mate but once he does he is gentle, adoring but also passionate and possessive as hell. The sexual chemistry between H/h was really sparking off the pages!! I liked the h too, she was feisty but also smart and loving. Safe romance.
The Morgon are half human half dragon and they are all that’s left of their dragon ancestors. Most humans have great prejudice towards them and although they’ll do business with them, they do not want their daughters anywhere near them.
Jessen Cade’s father is a corporate mogul and in order to keep control of his empire he has her future planned out…right down to marrying her off to ...more
I am in love with the idea of Lucius Nightwing. He can fly me to the moon and back. Lucius is protective of this human Jessen and is trying to stop the pull he feels toward her. His species really has no control when his mate is decided, but t ...more
If someone had told me that it IS possible to have a good, complete story in only a bit more than 100 pages, with no prequel of said story anywhere to grab on, I would have laughed. Loudly. While holding my stomach and rolling on the floor.
Now this doesn't mean I haven't read such books before. I have, but they usually come from authors I have tried before. However, Juliette Cross managed to prove she CAN do it! ...more

Jessen, human, is the kind of female role I love. She is spirited and lively. Seen more as a commodity than as a daughter to her father ...more
Soulfire is book one in the Nightwing series by Juliette Cross. This is my first read by author Juliette Cross. The sotryline and premise are good. The characters are defined and the world description is vivid and detailed.
I love dragon’s and when this one popped up to read, I had to give it a try. Lucius Nightwing is protective of a human, he feels the pull towards her and once his species finds their mate they have no control of it, but the racism is at an all time hi in ...more
The secondary characters were also interesting, without taking anything away from our two leads. I hope for more books in the future on these characters.
I loved the world that was crea ...more

What a fantastic book! I loved the world created in this book, and I loved the forbidden romance between Jessen Cade and Lucius Nightwing. Their love had a Romeo and Juliet feel to it, as well as the fact that Jessen is human and Lucian is a Morgan, a dragon-hybrid, and most humans, like Jessen’s father despises the Morgans, as the Nightwing clan is his greatest rival.
It’s been a while since I’ve read a paranormal romance so SOULFIRE came along at just the right time. That coupled with a blurb that mentioned DRAGONS and I was on it like a car bonnet!
SOULFIRE is set in a ‘verse inhabited by humans and dragon/human hybrids. While racial tensions are still high, things are slowly starting to change with humans and “Morgons” finding it mutually beneficial to engage in business together.
Jessen Cade is the daughter of on ...more
This is a NA novella, first book in the series. This is dragon shifter book. I’ve been on a shifter kick lately. Paranormal kick I guess you could call it. This book is cool because the dragons don’t actually shift. They look like humans but they have dragon wings. That’s the state that they reside in. The interesting thing is that the dragons can have humans as mates and not just other dragons. I liked that.
The main character,Jessen, she is ok. I felt lik ...more
this book introduces us to a real interesting world. I liked the world building immensely even, if there could have even been more information on it
I also liked the characters and how they found themselves drawn to each other but I was disappointed with the last quarter of the book ... this could have been really good, but the ending was so rushed that I felt cheated
hope the next book let us enjoy the couple a bit more and gives us also in the last quar ...more

Another new great series I discovered. This book is the first of the Nightwing series,and it does a good job of putting down a setting as well as characters. I LOVE DRAGONS!!! When I imagine a shape shifting dragon man all I can say is it gets hot in the room. This book was amazing. I love books with a strong heroine who figures out exactly what she wants and isn't afraid to go for it. Add to that the mystique of dragons, a bit of treachery, a dash of deceit and the search for true love and you ...more
I’m going to start with the things I liked because it will be all ranting afterwards, I can’t help it:
- The prologue is what it should have been. What would it have taken, Juliette Cross?
- The architecture in a city that it’s shared by humans and Morgons. Those ten-storied disco-bars or Morgon houses, designed from up to bottom inspi ...more
I am not sure why I enjoyed this novella so much. I mean, I have read shifter books, paranormal books, romances between lovers from two different sides of the tracks.... so what makes this novella so captivating? I don't even particularly enjoy novellas as a rule - not enough time for true story and character development. I can't honestly put my finger on it so let me go ahead and give some credit to J ...more

The problem was, I’d never been a very obedient daughter. Never the one to do exactly as I was told. And fairy tales have no meaning when the stars align and Fortune spins her wheel, weaving her own story for your heart.”
