Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

Donna Grant has woven this wonderful tapestry of characters. An epic battle that could hang on any castle wall. A story of good verses evil to the extreme. Betrayal, denial, unrequited love and more. Her Dark Kings Series is expanding Part II Of Hot Blooded only turns up the fire.

Heading into part two of Hot Blooded, we left things on edge at the edge of Part 1. Laith was trying to figure out how to tell Iona not only who she was but what she was and how impo

Another great addition. Leaves a lot of questions about what's going on with Rhy. Hopefully we'll find out soon

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

Hot Blooded Part 2:

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

No matter how much Laith tries to deny that Iona is his he is starting to realize that she is his mate and it would be easier to not fight it.

Iona is finally starting to realize what it's like to make friends. As well as finding out that her father was not who she thought he was. She comes to find

The plot thickens... dark forces are in play, but who is leading them? AND the attraction between Laith and Iona grows... AND favorite characters from previous books come into play!

"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 rea

So many things happening in this second installment I’m not sure where to begin. In this second installment to Hot Blooded, we see a letter from her deceased father; answer some of Iona’s questions. However, just as some of the questions she has are answered, many more crop up to take their place.

Laith is finally coming to terms with the fact that Iona means something more than any other mortal does to him. Why is it that the Dragon Kings act as if they’re being hit by a semi when they realize w

Okay, in part 2, most of the storylines began to make sense. Unfortunately, we got even MORE points of view. I’m honest that overdone angst is liable to make me foam at the mouth and stop reading any book – and if I hadn’t already agreed to review all four parts, I would have stopped reading half way through this installment.
As if this wasn’t troublesome enough, there were three characters with similar names – so much so that I got confused every time Rhi, Rhy, or Ryder was brought up. Having t

This is the second part of the serial being released. This is the next installment with awesome characters and a great plot. We are going for the good vs evil fight and I can't wait to see what's gunna happen. We ended on a little mini cliff hanger at the end of the first book.

Laith is trying to tell Iona who she is, how she's needed, and what she means to him. But things got complicated, and he won't admit to himself that she's his mate, not yet anyways :)

Iona is a little bit freaking out. He

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

Iona finds out that she is surrounded by secrets in this fascinating installment of Hot Blooded.

With a fast pace and smooth flowing plot, this installment keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation with suspense, excitement and romance. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as Laith and Iona dance around their attraction and the excitement of Iona discovering that she right smack in the middle of lots of secrets.

Well written scenes and details capture the imagination while

Hot Blooded is part of a mesmerizing paranormal series by Donna Grant. This may the best book to date. While you may be able to follow all the intricate storylines in the four part series, you enjoyment will be greatly enhanced by reading all of the Dragon Kings stories.

In Hot Blooded: Part 2 the conflict continues to heat up just as the attraction between Laith and Iona does. I like both of these individuals who have been down such different paths in their lives just to end up at the same place

This installment in the series was much like the first. It kept me interested, the pace of the story is moving along nicely, and we are getting to know more about all of the characters. It is still a little bit hard keeping all of the characters straight - there is a big cast. Plus, there are so many allusions to things that have happened in the past, that more backstory would make everything a little easier to understand. Overall, still a good read, and I will be continuing on to find out what ...more

This was amazing, I have so many questions and can't wait to read the next one to see if they will be answered. I love a book with a good mystery. This one keep me turning the pages hoping to see what was going on. Will Rhys be ok, what's up with Con and who killed Iona's father and will Laith give in to his feelings? On to the next to see. the author has done a great job with the story and the characters.

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

Hot Blooded: part 2

Part two of Hot Blooded is a great continuation of part one. It leaves you hanging on the edge and wanting book 3 immediately. I really am intrigued by not only the mystery of who exactly the killer is, but by what's going on with Rhys. You can't help but feel for him and wonder what's happening. I suspect that's going to be another story. Now I'm off to plunge into book 3.

We left with Iona and Laith being chased by bad guys. They make for her house and Laith takes care of them so they will be safe. Iona learns her father was murdered and then Laith tells her to read his letter that gives her understanding about what she is up to. Now their friend Rhys is in trouble. What next? I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

Oh still so many questions. Who is Rhi's lover? What's going on with Con and the light Queen? Will Rhys be okay? And then who is after Iona?

Things are heating up with Laith and Iona and she's figuring out there is more going on than she expected. I absolutely love this series!
