And the fact that she’s doing so to protect him? Alarming.

I've been a fan of this author since I first discovered her Reveler series, so was very keen when I heard she was bringing out a dragon series. The first book Tempted by Fire was interesting but you know how sometimes you like but don't love a book? Well that's exactly how I felt and yet I had faith in this author and what do you know? Yes with this book she has not only found her stride in the world she has created but crafted a really good story with all sorts of glorious possibilities for fut ...more

I love this series. Erin Kellison, I'm definitely keeping my eye on you!

I liked this a little less than the first one and again it wasn't long enough for me but Dragons!
Nothing more needs to be said.

Book 3, here I come.

I’m enjoying Kellison’s Bloodkin world. Her dragons are intense, greedy, and damn sexy. Warrick Voclain is young by dragon standards. He is commanding and has gained power and wealth through the usual Bloodkin channels. He is one of the Triad. He is also about to be put into an awkward position where one of his family’s Vine’s is concerned. Something was created behind his back with his unknowing assistance. Bloodkin Law requires him to destroy it. His dragon heart makes him want to hoard it awa ...more

4.5 Stars! Exciting, humorous, action packed dragon story! I enjoyed the first book but I loved the second one. This could be read as a stand alone book. Although it started out a bit slow for me once I hit about 20% the story took off and I couldn't put it down!

This book had everything I look for in a good PNR - characters I love, action, entertaining world building and of course a believable romance. The romance was a slow build but that kept it believable and I so hope to see more Warrick and

AWAKENED BY FIRE by Erin Kellison is the second fantastic installment in the author's Dragons of Bloodfire series and my favorite of the series so far! I laughed, swooned and even trembled as I turned the pages at stressful points. There were intense, action-packed fights, cute dialogue and yummy adult lovefests! In addition, I thoroug

Her secret gift will get her and her grandfather killed, so Samantha Vine needs to stay under the radar but with someone striking at Warrick, her quick trip home, stretches into weeks because only she has the ability to stop it in this splendid paranormal romance.

I liked the characters and loved the way the romance played out. It's VERY easy for a romance involving an immortal being falling for a mortal he saw grow up from an infant to turn creepy and skevy but (likely due to the confident and independent heroine and her ability to match the hero), it was sweet and cute.

OMG, I loved this story! It sucked me right in, and I loved disappearing into it.

Samantha Vine has a secret. A secret that if found out could get her killed. She is a Tempus and can time travel. This isn’t something that just anyone can do, not even dragons even though time is always on their sides. Being a Tempus is dangerous to dragons and so if her ability is discovered, her grandfather’s dragon and Bloodkin Triad member, Warrick Voclain must by law kill her, and her grandfather for hiding h

This is the second book to the Dragons of Bloodfire series and author Erin Kellison continues to hold the reader enthralled as she weaves a story of hidden secrets that if found out would lead to death for Samantha and her grandfather. I love how fearless Samantha is with protecting her grandfather and Warrick even when she just wants to run and hide from Warrick and his mother by going back to her business and home.

This story tells of a long friendship between Samantha and Brandon which turns a

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle:

Erin captivates once again with her latest installment of the Dragons of Bloodfire series!

Samantha Vine left the world of dragons to pursue her independence and stay off the radar, but one step back on Voclain property and her world is changed forever. Her secret is out, she's basically being blackmailed, and to top it all off, she has to spend every day with the dragon who sets her heart ablaze.

Story and narration not nearly as good as the first book. (audible review)

Hmm. Kind of a bummer. This book was not nearly as good as the first book, Tempted by Fire. And the narrator switch did not help either. I was so bummed when I saw the narrator was different.

The story line and plot were okay. I thought the gift that Samantha had was interesting enough. But her character was a bit too wimpy for me. Warrick was pretty decent, I liked him well enough. There was a lot more inner dialogue than

Dragons, man. Dragons. They're bloodthirsty and when they decide to go for something, they go after it. Like, hardcore. HARDCORE.

And when they realize they might have feelings for the special someone who's been hanging around? ALL BETS ARE OFF. Even for members of the Triad.

So. Still loving this world. Dragon shifters make me happy. They're just so...I don't know. Intense. Focused. Dark and broody. Warrick certainly comes across as all those. The power he has makes him formidable. The fact Saman

I freely chose to review this ARC as I had read the first book and wanted to continue with the story. Samantha Vine returned to the very place she escaped when she turned eighteen, but now at twenty-five she had to be a bridesmaid in a hideous dress no less! She only needed to go to the wedding a visit with her grandad then escape back to her cozy life in Phoenix. Easy peasy. yeah right!

Billionaire dragon shifter, Warrick Voclain, was a member of the Bloodkin Triad and he is no stranger to power
Samantha Vine has been keeping a secret, one no dragon shifters can find out. It has made life difficult as her grandfather is the steward to Bloodkin Triad member Warrick Volcain, when she was younger she could chalk up her behavior by secretly crushing on Warrick, now though she wants to protect him.

Warrick is trying to figure out why Samantha is using magic on him and what he discovers changes everything. Dragons covet, but Samantha is an independent woman who doesn't follow the rules. Unmas

Quite an interesting twist on the Tempus concept. For me, Warrick and Samantha's romance was a little slow to bloom but so much was happening in their lives I guess Warrick's attention was a little divided. Could also be that being a dragon he came to conclusions much slower than us humans. :oD Very happy to see Thane and Emerson too. I hope we get to see more of all these characters in future books as well. Overall a very exciting and thrill-filled read.

3.5 Goodreads; 4 Amazon. My 1st by author. Original elements, appealing leads, well-written.

First of all, you don't need to have read book 1 to enjoy this book. Thane Ealdian and his human-raised bride appear only in the end, but we're told all we need to know about the changes in the Triad Warrick is dealing with. The world is interesting, with Bloodkin being wealthy, dangerous rulers/celebrities, not unlike Nalini Singh's angels, but the vampires, while Bloodkin-created, are quite different: a

Samatha Vine is from a Bloodkin-sworn family of dragon retainers and servants that goes back generations. She's been hidden from them by her grandfather, the Voclain Dragon steward, due to one small problem - She's a Tempus, a time traveling human created by in utero exposure to dragon blood. Dragons exterminate her kind as abominations, and execute the dragon whose blood creates one. Warrick Voclain, has of his clan, discovers her, and belt4edly, her tal

So, as mentioned in my review of the first book in this series, I grabbed all three on sale--in both Kindle and Audible versions. This book went deeper into the Bloodkin world building and introduced more dragons, including Warrick Voclain, a member of the ruling Triad. The story focuses more on Warrick's personal situation--his mother and their "people," the loyal retainers who have sworn blood oath and served the Voclains for generations. Samantha Vine is the exception. She was always made to ...more

I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

Awakened by Fire is Erin Kellison’s second book in the Dragons of Bloodfire series and I was ecstatic to read yet another book after the awesomeness of the first one. Though it has been a long while since I read that one, I think I might have forgotten some details. What made it even harder to get into this one at first was that we are brought a new cast of characters. I can’t remem

Erin Kellison, Awakened by Fire, Dragons of Bloodfire Book 2
This book was, as expected, just as captivating, if not more so, than the first installment Tempted by Fire. I was very much hoping for more of Thane and Ember’s story but I wasn’t disappointed for long as the very beginning caught my attention. This is Warrick and Samantha’s story and I recommend this series to anyone who loves dragon shifters and their hordes, paranormal romances, suspense, and sizzling bedroom scenes! I love the way

Dragon battles

Samantha is home for her cousin's wedding. The only thing unusual from your average family wedding is that she and her cousin are part of a family blood bound to Bloodkin, the Voclain Red dragons. And Samantha hides a secret, one that could get a number of people killed, starting with her. She ends up using this ability to keep Warrick Voclain safe, at the behest of his mother - who it turns out had known the secret. Someone is trying to dismantle the Bloodkin leadership, the Triad
