A yearning that won’t be denied

Really liked this novella! But then again, Donna never disappoints!

DRAGON FEVER is a novella set in the Dark Kings would. If you haven’t read this series yet, I would suggest starting from the beginning. Since this book takes place quite deeper into the timeline already, I think new readers would be lost and probably wouldn’t appreciate the story than someone who has read from the beginning.

That being said, DRAGON FEVER explores some of the consequences of the events in the series so far. So far the Dark Kings have managed to stay relatively hidden but tha

I love Donna Grant’s dragons. I read her 10th book, Firestorm, and they just keep getting better and better. And this one is no different. I loved Asher and Rachel. She was all set to get all the dirt on him that she could find and then splash it all over the newspaper, but once she heard his story she changed her tune.

Of course, Ulrik is being his usual asshole self. I love that, too. LOL… And I loved Ms. Blossom Engel, too. She was Asher’s assistant and was very protective of him, as we
WTF Are You Reading?

If you thought that a Dark Kings novella would pack any less of a
literary punch than that of the full length novels that readers have come to know and love.
You are in for quite the drama filled surprise with Dragon Fever.

Spotlighting Jade Dragon King, Asher.
Dragon Fever takes up right where Smoke And Fire left off.
With Ulrik seeming to gain both power and influence at every turn,
and the destruction of the Dragon Kings his only goal.
Con, Dreagan, the united Dragon Kings, and all the world face m
Dragon Fever was another okay novella. In it, you will meet Asher and Rachel. They were okay characters but Rachel was just not my favorite person. I wanted to like her but she wasn't really trustworthy. Then there's Asher, who was a lot more likable. I was intrigued to see how things were going to play out since Asher knew things that Rachel wasn't saying. Other than all of that, the romance we meh and I just mostly bored with the whole thing. ...more

I’m always intrigued by humanities need to uncover the truth about anything other worldly; they act as if it is their right to know all secrets, exposing the truth for the good of mankind. But here’s the thing, the means to which humans work to unearth the ‘truth’ is both underhanded and manipulative and usually is done for the wrong reasons or for altruistic ones that can’t truly be reached.

It’s interesting to see Rachel/Rae work her ruse on Asher King - one of the Dragon Kings - because for s

I continue to be impressed that this author can make each of the books in this series unique in some way. And it doesn't seem to matter that this is a novella, it had it's own flare and I just continue to devour them.

For the first time, we have a women trying to find out the dirt on the Kings. She's trying to trick Asher. Good luck with that. But it creates a new dimension to their story. When will he find out? How far is she willing to go to get her story? And can Asher ever forgive her if she

i haven't actually read many shifter books and and this was my first Dragon one and it's safe to say that I am now a fan and I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of this series.

We have a hot possessive alpha male and a strong determined heroine the chemistry between is there right from the moment they meet.

There was plenty of romance and suspense which has left me wondering what comes next, especially there are many secrets hinted at in this book.

Roll on for the rest of this series.

I think that Donna Grant had me in mind when she is writing these Dragon King book. I can see myself in each and everyone of her books. Then there is the Dark Warriors Books as well. Keep up the good work.
4.5 stars.

I am a huge fan of this sexy dragon series! This novella was filled with everything I like, romance, suspense and lots of excitement. I can't wait to see what comes next!

I loved the strong chemistry between Asher and Rachel.

Also, at least there's a bit progress regarding Ulrik.

The heroine is an American, again. I'm bored.

I think Asher is a green dragon. I forgot the details, oops.

Of course, Rachel is a human. I'm bored some more.

That's all.

This is a novella and in it, we meet Asher and Rachel.
Rachel is a reporter, setup by non-other than someone out to hurt the Dragon Kings unknowingly.

However is she the one for him?

I liked the change of scenery, from Dreagan in Scotland to Paris, France in this book. I found the story to be romantic with very sexy steamy scenes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t fond of Rachel Marek, not because she didn’t eventually redeem herself - which she did in the long run - but because she didn’t seem to be a very adept professional journalist. Also, I found her falling hard and fast for Asher a little hard to swallow since she firmly believed that those at Dreagan were dangerous liars who n ...more

This novella is #9.5 in the series, "Dark Kings" by author; Donna Grant. This novella (short story) picks up from #9 (Smoke and Fire). The series just keeps getting better and better. There's the HOT Scottish alpha male that's able to shift into his natural form as a Dragon! There's also plenty of romance, lots of action, suspense and the PLOT twist! The plot twist keeps the reader wanting to read the whole series because you absolutely have to know what's going to happen. I love how each novel/ ...more

Too short, not enough srory for Asher

This novella was just a tasye into this world of Dragon Kings that was created by Donna Grant, but honestly Asher deserved more, he is the biggest homebody among the clan, but why, he had a family he lost. I would habe liked a dull book, but I understand these are basic introductions into the world she created is to get people to want more.

Asher & Rachel Marek, journalist

Ulrick has enlisted Rachel to write a piece on the Dragon Kings and went after Asher for the information. He was at the Whisky Consortium in Paris representing Draegan. It didn’t go as plan when he found out who she was and who she was working for, Sam McDonald aka Ukrick.
Asher & Ukrick fought as dragons and things were said to put doubts in Asher’s head. New questions and allies are brought out. Who is Blossom Engel? Who are the men working for her? How did she

Love a good fantasy

These Dark Kings books are entrancing and filled with action and adventure. At least the "f" word is kept to a minimum. Romance coupled with adventure is a bonus, But, two chapters of detailed sex is a bit over the top. I enjoy "fantasy" but these graphic descriptions are not even real taken as a whole . If that's your aim, well, you will enjoy this story.
The Dragon Kings and their history and trials are very enjoyable.

I hated Rachel at first. She’s an investigative reporter trying to out the dragon kings when she runs into Asher at the whiskey convention in Paris. I was annoyed that she kept saying there’s two sides to every story, but was so hypocritical.

She did redeem herself though!! After meeting and falling for Asher she realizes her mistakes. I loved Asher too - I know this was a novella, but he was so quick to forgive.

“Dreagan is Scotland," Asher said. "The land draws you in a way you can no' begin to understand. You feel the majesty and magic of the ancient land. From the tallest mountain to the lowest valley, in the leaves of the trees and in the currents of the streams, you feel an overwhelming and unshakable need to want to be a part of such a place. To want to belong.
It doesn't confine you. Instead, it cradles you, offering its beauty and solitude for those who answer its call. It's wild and free. It's fierce and unbreakable. It's home.”
“He set his whisky tumbler on the table, but kept his fingers around it. "What do you see in my eyes?"...
"Tell me, lass," he urged softly.
She suddenly understood the term 'old soul,' because one sat before her now. And, as if opening a book, she caught a glimpse of Asher. The words then tumbled out of her mouth. "Endlessness. Sorrow. Agony. Distress. Rage.”
