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 that h

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.

Dragon Fever takes up right where Smoke And Fire left off.
With Ulrik seeming to gain both power and influence at every turn,

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.

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.
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 received an ARC.

Asher is sent to Paris to the annual World Whiskey Conversation instead of Con. Rachel is sent in to investigate him and write an article revealing all of their secrets to the world. What neither of them suspects is that the moment they meet sparks fly and a fever rises between the two of them. When it is revealed that Ulrik sent Rachel, Asher is disappointed in yet another human, but he turns the tables on her and he reveals his past and in so doing wins her trust and loyalty.

"Dragon Fever" is a perfect short- novel to introduce the Dark Kings’ world to the readers who don’t know this extraordinary paranormal romance series written by Donna Grant, but it’s also perfect for those who love the Dragon Kings.

Why perfect? Simply because despite being the # 9.5 story of the series, in a few pages the author manages to present the all the history of the Dragon Kings, the most important things happened to them in the series, very clearly, and thus shows how amazing

I wanted to rate this lower because I really hated Rachel for a lot of the book. But in the end, I enjoyed the read enough to go higher. It was a fun short read that even though it was a novella has a huge surprise in store for us.

I liked Asher. He was just somebody that seemed it would be super easy to get along with and spend time with. He enjoyed the little things in life and likes his peace. Asher has been sent by Con to represent Dreagan at this huge whiskey convention thing. And boy does

Nothing matters but getting the truth, especially not the ruggedly handsome, roguishly thrilling Highlander who oozes danger and charm.

I'm a big fan of the 1001 Dark Nights anthology series. What better way to be introduced to a series than by a novella?! Plus if you're already a fan of one of the featured authors/series' then it's always nice to get sneaky extra stories.

DRAGON FEVER is a part of the Dark Kings series and I have to admit I was a complete newbie to Donna Grant's adult paranormal series about mythological dragons living in the modern world. The Dragons have two forms, both dragon (of course) and human. If I had t

“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.”
