Part four of a four part serial...

This review is a combined review for all four parts! Full book will be released December 30th...Hot Blooded

Hot Blooded is definitely one of my favorites in the Dark Kings series so far... and, the way it ended has me dying for the next book! Looks like Rhys and Lily are finally going to get their book... Can't wait... :))
It goes without saying that I love all of the dragon kings, but I particularly loved the pairing of Laith and Iona. She is such a strong fema
Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

A slow build, this wasn't just about sex, although the sex scenes were perfect. It was about developing a relationship. About bringing two totally different people (ok, person and dragon) together. It was about falling in love.. and then learning to deal with the outside world.. not that's not right, it was about learning to deal with each other's baggage and still falling in love. It was good vs evil, it was powerful and passionate.

Iona and Laith have come t

Oh boy this was so good, but still so many unanswered questions. My heart just broke for Rhys and the decision he made. I want Ulrich to be the bad guy, but I'm just not sure. I think I know who Rhi's dragon lover was, but I guess I will have to wait and see if I'm right.

I liked every part of this series (and this installment). The only thing that frustrates me is that it is obviously a very small part of an ongoing story, and I hate waiting for each book to come out, lol! I guess that's a good thing because it means I am totally caught up in the story and characters. And with the large cast of characters and the complexities of each person/group/world this story could go on and on. Overall, I really liked it, and will continue reading more by this author and in ...more

NOTE: Hot Blooded is a four-part book, and should be read in sequence, and the four parts will be published as one single book in January 2015.

This review is for all the four parts and will be the same for all four books.

The battle between good and evil, human and demon is a never-ending war waged for centuries and shall continue into the future with destructive consequences, as power and control take precedence over everything. And as history shows, for every act of evil, there will be reacting

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 30, 2014

A DARK KING AND HIS MATE. In HOT BLOODED: Part IV, the situation goes from bad to worse. Laith, Iona and the Dark Kings are preparing for a showdown. Winner takes all, but neither Laith nor Iona can stand to lose, especially if it means losing each other

Characters: Yesss, the HEA for Iona and Laith, and it made me so freaking happy :D Their love isn’t the insta-love kind, and despite being drawn to each other since the first time they see one another, it felt like a slow burn wove story. They both changed due to their growing feelings, they evolved, took chances together, became stronger

In this conclusion to the Hot Blooded serial, an epic showdown has saved the day once again and in this case, the secret doorway to Dregan… for now. Seems as if their hidden enemy is biding his time but for what we don’t know. Is the enemy Ulrich? Has Deidre somehow figured out a way to come back from the dead? After all she managed it once before. Or is it a still unknown mystery enemy that we will meet later on? Is there yet another Dragon King on this plain those those at Dregan are unaware ...more

'I received a complimentary copy of this book through Netgalley from the publisher in exchange for an honest review'

In parts 1-3 we have seen Laith and Iona's journey. Iona had to come back to Scotland for the reading of his will after his death, which she later finds out was no accident. She meets Laith and the other Dragon Kings and now they find that she was basically set up to look like she was spying on them and she finds that most of her life the past few years has been nothing but a lie.

The Exciting Conclusion...

"John Campbell was found dead this morning." He was murdered...

The Campbells had owned the fifty acres bordering Dreagan for countless generations...

"Who's going to guard the land?" Laith asked....

"John has a daughter, Iona."

HOT BLOODED by Donna Grant is another mesmerizing read in Donna's Dark Kings series. I read it as a four-part serialized story. I inhaled each installment as it was published and then couldn't wait for the release of the next! This review is a com

Hot Blooded: Part 4 ends with Donna Grant giving Laith and Ione a satisfying happily ever after. However, many of the supporting charters did not fair as well. Rhys is damaged and Lilly is in danger. Also, it is unclear if Rhi will land on the dark or light side. The internal battle within her has not been decided by the end of this book. I will admit the light seems to be winning. Which leaves the question that looms the largest- Who is the one against the Dark Dragons? He is so powerful he can ...more

The situation has gone from bad to worse and the Dragon Kings are preparing for war while Iona struggles to accept her attraction to Laith in this exciting conclusion of Hot Blooded serial.

With a fast pace, the conclusion keeps readers on their toes with lots of action and romance. Iona struggles with her attraction to Laith, to accept everything that she’s learned and just how much she’s been betrayed and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement of battle as the Dark attack

YES! The conclusion is epic!! It was done perfectly. We've fallen in love with Laith and Iona, and they've fallen for each other. They will fight together against evil, and make some hard decisions. Iona has come into herself, she's a strong woman, and Laith is learning that a mate is more important than he even thought. And together they are gunna save the doorway to Dreagan, while keeping their enemies from exposing them to the world. And now, one of the other dragons, Rhys, pays a heavy price ...more
Crystal's Many Reviewers
Sigh. This ‘ending’ of Hot Blooded in 4 parts was a disappointment after part 3 – and yet nothing more than I expected at the beginning. The buildup to the fight, which was circumvented by a human? (sigh) And it wasn’t even the real fight. That is yet to be had in a future installment of the Dark Kings series. The fact the series is titled Dark Kings makes me wonder just who the heroes are in the author’s mind.
Too many half plot lines thrown in the air, too many points of view, and too much ang

Hot Blooded part 4.....

I feel like I'm hanging on the edge of a cliff now. Talk about a cliffhanger ending! What a great continuation of book 3. I have really enjoyed reading about Laith and Iona's journey through the tumultuous trials and tribulations scattered throughout the plot of the story. The only difficult issue I have with this wonderful, heart warming series, is that now I want to read about Lily and Rhys. I have not checked to see if it's out yet, but I hope if it isn't, that it arriv

A copy was provided by Netgalley for an honest review.

This review is for all the four parts and will be the same for all four books.

Hot Blooded is a book released in four parts, the four parts will be released as a novel in January 2015. I had not read any of Donna Grant’s books before, and I gotta say, I was missing out. I have just recently taken interest in paranormal/fantasy romance. I had only read one dragon shifter book in the past and I was not all that interested. These highland dragon
From the second I finished part 3 I was begging for this one. however I feel like I missed something or it just was so anti-climatic. Iona and Laith are making their way still, however now Iona is meeting her family, and the Warriors and Druids.

Rhys is still falling apart, Con's ways of dealing with things are making all the Kings nervous, and Rhi is still not herself. WE still have the unidentified person working with the Dark Fae, and the Dark still having issues on the pact they have made.

Well, everything Pops in this episode. Iona has major problems with her camera. Spoiler. She is fighting getting closer to Laith. They have a battle at the Dreagon gate with many Dark casualties. They were after Iona and were sent off the property. Spoiler. The best part is Iona meeting the Dragon for the first time. I want a Dragon! Enjoy this book! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.
Catherine  Wright (Cat's Guilty Pleasure)
Absolutely loved this series. I feel there are still some questions that need to be answered and things wrapped up. Other than that it was very good. The characters are great and so is the writing. I love how open and honest Iona and Laith are with each other.

I was given a copy by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I loved the story of Laith and Iona. What can I say I love dragons. Another chapter in the series of Dragon Kings their war with the Fae,the humans,and the other Dragon King. I also enjoy how the author brings characters from other books and other series and blends them in. I look forward to the next book in the series, to see how each Dragon finds his mate.
