No man can win her heart—until now…

In the Gladium Province, the boundaries between humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, continue to blur as a new generation surrenders to long-forbidden temptation…

Sorcha Linden does whatever she wants whenever she wants, and no one can stop her. Least of all a man. After all, they’re good for only one thing—warming her bed. But then

Windburn is book two in the Nightwing series by Juliette Cross. When I first read book one in this series, Soulfire, I fell so instantly in love with this new man/dragon race, the Morgons. And with Juliette’s writing as well. I was a little worried starting book two because I wanted the same magic to be there, to love it just as much. Well, I needn’t have worried because I did love it!

This falls into my ‘I need a quick fix of something magical and sexy’ category. At around 100 pages this is perfect to get a little something sexy in between books or great if you just want to relax in the tub to read.

Sorcha is wild, aggressive and a little free with her body but never free with her heart. Lorian is reserved and very much in control of everything in his life but Sorcha gets under his skin in a way no other woman has, and she might
I love falling into Juliette Cross's imaginations, getting swept up into this sexy world full of Morgans, which are dragon-hybrids, and the feisty women who would tame them.

Windburn is the story of Lorien and Sorcha. A Morgan whose Dragon is always on the surface, and a strong-willed woman who takes crap from no one, not even the alluring predator that is Lorien. I loved how fierce these two were, forthright and being true to themselves. No hiding, no giving in, stubborn to the core. Unapologet

This is how you write a follow up book in a new series. No rehashing the world building plots and dragging it down with tons of retellings. Nope, nuh-uh, no, right into the thick of it! Well done Juliette Cross!

At the end of my last review I stated that “Soulfire is off to a great start and I will be sticking with this series in hopes that we will get a bit more emotionally in-depth in the next book.” I am pleased to say that is just what I got, tons of real emotion and an alpha male with real i

5 - Be careful what you wish for... Stars!

The second book in Juliette Cross’ awesome Nightwing series gives us dark and broody Morgon; Lorian Nightwing’s story, the author matched him perfectly with sassy, confident Sorcha Linden.

The chemistry sparked between the two of them from the first page, with both of them challenging the other constantly in just about every aspect of their coming together, and held me in its grip until the last. Like the first novella, this book was read in one sitting
~2016 A-Z reading challenge; letter W~

This was a fairly good book - I do like the first in the series better though. This one was from the heroines, Sorcha, POV only. It didn't hinder my feeling towards the relationship though. A lot of the times I do not feel a real relationship growing or the intensity of it when its only from one point of view. I do really like Juliette Cross's writing style, so maybe that was why.

Sorcha, the heroine, rubbed me the wrong way for most of the story. She was so arrogant (to me anyway). I knew thi

Windburn is book two in the Nightwing series by Juliette Cross. When I read the first book, Soulfire, I instantly feel in love with this world and the Morgon/dragon race. Windburn recaps the world & races, so this can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend pick up book one too.

I could not put this one down. I loved the characters. Lorian is the embodiment of a sexy hot dominant alpha male. Can we say sexy as hell! Sorcha embodies a women who can stand tall,

I adore this writer's style and prose. Her ability to craft one liners that pierce the heart is extraordinary. Book two of the Nightwing series was another home run for me. I fell for this world in Soulfire, book one, and continue to get swept away in it. What’s not to love about the winged Morgon men and their inner dragons?

4.25 Stars!

In the Gallium Province, a dragon-hybrid race, known as Morgons, live alongside humans, but with tension and distrust between them. As the communities evolve, boundaries are blurring, bringing Morgons and humans closer together. Many apartments now house both races, and the more progressive individuals are encouraging collaborations. But there are some on both sides who frown upon the interactions between humans and Morgons, adding another layer of tension to an already precarious sit

The Review:

Windburn picks up some time after Soulfire ends, and I will say this: you won’t miss anything if you haven’t read Soulfire other than some background information. These books are part of a series and while you know characters from the previous book you don’t actually miss anything by not having read it. Sorcha starts off this book

*** I received an ARC from Lyrical Press/Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. Expected publication date: 2/3/2015 ***

I really enjoyed Soulfire, the first book in the series, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the second one and Windburn has lived up to my expectations. While it is a novella, you still get a well written story that doesn’t skimp on the plot (the whole ancient blood cult/stalker issue was a great twist) or character development. Windburn also didn’t rehash al

"I don't give a damn about anything but you, Sorcha. Don't you understand?" - Lorian Nightwing

Lorian, oh, Lorian, why must you be so perfect? More than anything, what's wrong with your sense of logic?! Why Sorcha of all women?!

Sorcha Linden has any man she wants wrapped around her little finger. She has no problem being a bed-hopper, but Lorian Nightwing, her latest obsession, won't have it that way. Either she's his alone, or not at all. A dark cult looking to turn her into a blood sacrifice is

This story is off and running from the very beginning. Cross jumps right into the heart of the story in a very riveting manner. Seriously, I love this author`s writing! Her style is so fun and approachable. She invites you fully into her world, allowing you to experience it alongside her characters. This world is so fully, and vibrantly developed that you can`t help but be drawn into it. The fantastic creatures that Cross has brought forward spark and capture your imagination.

I think this was a huge step from her previous work, Soulfire.
I wholeheartedly commend this author for being able to move forward in her way of writing with such a short time lapse between both books.
Sometimes we see authors, that even after several books, their writing shows no difference or progress and to see it here only after a couple of months of difference is really noteworthy.

The dialogue was not as stoic as before and flowed much more gracefully. Even though this was a shorter boo

When I read the first book of this series, Soulfire, it left me intrigued with the world the author had created and wanting more stories in this setting. I was also enamored with the characters, and was glad to see that Sorcha has her own story here in Windburn.

Sorcha’s character is fantastic-so strong and self-assured, she knows what she wants and goes after it (and him). And then you have Lorian Nightwing (brother to Lucius from Soulfire)…overwhelmingly alpha male, especially when his dragon c

Windburn is the second book in this series and I have to say, I love the setting. it is a very good idea and the plot in this one was much more action-filled than in the first one. Although this only showed in the second half

I really missed Lorians POV here, as it would have given me more insight on his character - and as he is a very interesting character with quite some history, it would have been well worth it.

Sorcha was for me a bit difficult to like at the beginning as I got the impression

Of all the Nightwing books, this was my favorite. For starters, Sorcha was a spunky heroine, which I absolutely loved. Secondly, Lucius (the hero) turned out to be one of those intense brooding types that was strong enough NOT to fall for Sorcha's tricks and looked beyond to what she needed in the long run. I just love it when an author can pull that off with a couple. Total swoon worthy stuff.

The whole series is fantastic. They're shorter in length, so they're perfect for a night cuddled up at

Thanks Kensington books via Netgalley for a free book to read and review.

What a gem of a book! My first by this author and I really enjoyed it. I didn't read the first in this series, but this book did well as a stand alone. I didn't have any problems connecting to the book or the characters. Lorian Nightwing was an extreme alpha male, and in my opinion Sorcha's prince. Any man that will stand between you and danger is a keeper in my book! The characters had great chemistry and the world buildi

Holy cannoli, I love Juliette Cross.
Her writing appears effortless and flows across the pages, pulling the reader into an intriguing, exciting, different world on the brink of great change as humans and Morgans begin to break down prejudice and intermingle to form new friendships, alliances and relationships.
On the face of it, this book is about Jessen's best friend Sorcha and Jessen's now brother-in-law. However, the subplot subtly pushes forward a theme that runs through the series. It also c

Wow, another hot & steamy one from Juliette Cross. Very easy to get engrossed in the characters and storyline. Once I picked up this book, I did not put it down. Love the strong main characters and fast-paced writing. Refreshing to read that the male lead makes his intentions known and goes after what he wants, as compared to other books where the hero is fighting his feelings for the heroine. Keep them coming, Juliette!
