Awwww I don't want it to be over! This book was great. I loved Lynn. She was such a "real" character. The blurb that describes the book doesn't do it justice. I decided to read this book because I have been in the mood for different lately. I haven't read many mysteries in years but I'm addicted to anything paranormal so I figured it was worth a try. The closest comparison I could make is The Dresden Files... without the witty humor. I hope that the author decides to write more dragon stories.

Really great shape-shifter story. I liked the whole concept and the characters involved all except for the villain of course. The story kept me guessing on who the villain was for the first part of the book and it's nice to not have it so obvious at the beginning. It doesn't hit me so much as a romance because of the suspicion keeping the heroine and hero separated even though there is an attraction and sexual tension between both. It comes off as more of a fantasy with sparks of romance, but th ...more

Dragons, Hottie Cowboy suspect, Small Town Backdrop for an arson mystery? Bring it, baby! I read the blurb and was convinced that reading this one would be no hardship. I love being right.

Lynn Alexander is from a long line of Japanese dragons. Her life has hit an all time low with the death of her grandmother that she is convinced is her fault, estrangement with her mother, finding her long-time boyfriend had cheated on her with a skank and being stuck in a dead-end dull job of writing ad jingle
A refreshing new approach to shapeshifters. Drawing upon traditional mythologies, but adding her own spin to things as well, Ms. Khan gives us a very unique sort of dragon shifter in the form of Lynn Alexander and others who are seen or mentioned within the story. While there are strong romantic elements here, this is primarily a mystery: who is setting the fires in a small West Texas town that claim at least one life and leave many homeless.

Lynn is a typical young woman in her early 20s. She h

This is an original review from I personally purchased this title and all opinions are my own.

Wildfire by Mina Khan is a nontraditional type of paranormal. With dragon shifters and cowboys set in Texas…how could one go wrong?

Wildfire is a great example of what I love about self-published books. It keeps that nontraditional and free spirited edge to every page. I think the author nails it by calling it “a paranormal mystery with romantic elements. It is not a tradition

The first thing that caught my attention about this book was “Cowboys & Dragons,” I didn’t even have to read the rest of the title, I was intrigued. I love dragons and there is certainly nothing wrong with cowboys in their tight jeans, cowboy boots and hats.

The story didn’t disappoint, from the beginning to the end, there is action, mystery and bewitching characters that keep you thoroughly entertained. The author has created a unique world of dragons that she brings to life with her
Cowboys & Dragons. Not much more needed to say about this story because that's right up there on my Top 10.

When Lynns grandmother died, she was left with unanswered questions and a whole bunch of guilt. Trying to get her life back together she's begun to start dreaming of things coming. When she sees her best friend, Jen, in trouble, she flies to her rescue. Unraveling a whole lot of trouble.

Jack is one of the wealthiest ranchers around. Although he lives under the black cloud of his ancestors.

I have to say I loved this book... It had a very interesting story line which kept you captivated and had you wanting to continue reading and wanting to know who is responsible for the fires.

The characters are interesting and were thoughtfully constructed. Lynn has a hard time of it lately her grandmas death and dumping her cheating fiance... Add in Jack and Henry which are handsome men who attract both her human and dragon side and both attracted to Lynn but both have her questioning which one

This book was utterly frustrating to me. On the one hand, dragons. On the other hand, they are also people. And, idiots. :D On the one hand, the premise is intriguing. On the other hand, it is poorly executed.

This book. I could not toss it aside, because I was too intrigued. Yet, it actually frustrated me to read it. I could not just skip to the last chapter, because I wanted to know not only what happened, but how it happened.

Ultimately, I think the characters were too one dimensional. We basi

Author: Mina Khan
Title: Wildfire

COVER: 7/10
The readers very much liked the cover. They thought it was perfect for the genre with a strong suggestion of fantasy and adventure. They also loved the letter fonts and the way the hand turns to a dragon’s claw. However, a number of the female readers felt there was a little too much emphasis on her ‘perfect body’ and very large busy size. They felt

General: Mina Khan has such a wonderful way with descriptions that the minute you open one of her novels you can't help but be transported inside of it. Wildfire is no exception. From plot, to characters the book is filled with details that drag you right inside and force you to face all the pain, romance and even comedic moments that Lynn goes through. I think the romance was perfectly weaved into the

I receive this book from the author Mina Khan through a GR giveaway. I really enjoy this book but I must say, that I love dragons’ stories. I like a lot the mix of romance, mystery, dragon shifters and the main characters, particularly Lynn. The writing and the descriptions are vivids and it brings a lot of dynamism to the novel. I recommend this book to anybody who likes mystery and shape shifters stories. I don’t know if it will be a “one shot” book but I would be ready to follow Lynn's advent
Dragons . . . cowboys . . . what could be better? I was caught up in this story before I even started it. I mean, come on, 2 of my favorite things in one book. It was either going to be love at first read or an unmitigated disaster.

Well, let me tell you this. On the very first page of this book, the author throws you head first into this lovely, scintillating story. Mina has a way with words, a very good way. First of all, her dialogs are delightful. Intelligent, witty and thoughtful conversati

3.5 stars - Even though the promised cowboy aspect of the story was pretty incidental, overall I liked Wildfire - since I did like the dragon-shifter freelance journalist leading lady Lynn and the investigation into the arson fires occurring in a small Texas community.

The story is mainly focused on the mystery, so there isn't exactly a romance but there are lots of little hormonal dragon moments. Lynn senses that there is another dragon-shifter nearby and thinks it may be one of the two guys in

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank Mina Khan, author of Wildfire, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
Here we meet Lynn who is a shape-shifter (one of the good points that I liked) and she can change into a dragon form!!! (Cool! Isn’t it?) She tries to save her friend and is plagued by the guilty conscience which got triggered when she failed to save her grandmother, now

Kimi was pretty tickled to see that the story was set in San Angelo, Texas. It's the San Angelo I knew, minus Goodfellow AFB nearby, which is just as well as I doubt dragons would have done well flying close to a military installation. Other than this bit of literary license, her description fairly had me tasting the grit that always seemed present in the desert air and the fine layer of dust that seemed to coat everything. Thankfully, her descriptions did included offices, public buildings, and ...more

I am reading Wildfire as part of the Malice, Mischief & Men collection. A while back I saw a description of this books and was intrigued, but I had so many other books to read I didn't know if I would get to it or not. Then I attended the online release party for MMM7 where Mina Khan talked about the book, and I found it irresistible, pretty much the reaction that I had to all of the books discussed that day.

With a TBR pile of over 100 books I had to dive into MMM7 immediately. The idea of drag

First things first. The formatting on my version was not good. In the PDF the font was huge, and in the MOBI version the space between POV switches vanishes.

Not a dealbreaker though, because when I got home I was all "AHH ... time to read more about dragons and cowboy firefighters!"

Then I remembered that I'd finished the book.

Then I cried.

So clearly the POV switching thing did not deter me in the slightest.

Reviewing this title is going to be tricky though. Since I love stories about cowboys and

Wildfire by Mina Khan: A Paranormal Mystery with Cowboys & Dragons. Isn’t that cover great? It drew me in initially. Lynn Alexander is a Japanese-American Shape shifter who winds up searching for a fire-starter, trying to mend fences with her mother, and maybe falling in love? If being 25 and trying to have a life wasn’t hard enough, add everything else and who wouldn’t need some alone time?
I liked the characters a lot…

As a bit time lover of old school fantasy stories, I always love when I see dragons and magic brought into more contemporary story lines. Mina Khan does the wonderfully with her dragon-shifter, Lynn Alexander. She's not some little petite dragon - she's the real deal and could probably eat you whole if she got angry enough. After experience a series of somewhat prophetic dreams she flies off to check on her friend Jen and finds her house about to go up in flames. When she senses the presence of ...more

I love books about shifters and if you throw in a bit of romance as well then I'm happy. I wasn't too sure about the mystery part of this book but I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. This is a fast paced, funny, action packed book.

Wildfire is a lovely book that is somewhat hard to classify genre-wise. To me, the classification doesn’t matter, but when recommending it to others I am often asked “What type of story is it?” Well, it has the feel of an urban fantasy with dragon shifters and a mystery to be solved, but is set in somewhat rural west Texas. It’s not a romance, but there are romantic elements. (Yay!) So I’ll go with the author’s description that it is “a paranormal mystery with romantic elements. It is not a trad ...more

This is the first book that I've read of Mina Khan's and I must say that it did intrigue me. I am looking forward to reading any of her other books. I have liked reading books about shape shifters for years now but you don't read about dragons often. And that made this book different from the rest. I liked that there was back story and some flashbacks to help explain what has already happened so the new reader won't feel left out at all. Though I could see where Lynn was coming, from past pain a ...more

I really enjoyed this story. It was loaded with a good dose of drama and intrigue. Just when you think you've got it pegged there's a twist that alters your thinking.
Full of mystery, my suspicions were jumping from one character to another. The cowboy element is a little incidental and not really necessary to the story, although I must admit I like a good hunky cowboy so I would have liked a little more of that thr
