This was a solid story. We get a girl, Aithne, who wants to save her sister from a vampire king who has captured her. In order to do this she must capture a male dragon shifter. Dragon shifter is mated to a witch. In order to get close to this man she makes friends with her target's mate's witchy sisters. These witchy sisters are special because not more than one female is ever born to a family, all other children are male. Well, long story short. There is another dragon shifter, Viktor, who hou ...more

The King's Fire is book Two in Leilani Love's wonderful series, The Dragon Ruby Series. I found Violca's Dragon quite compelling and was thrilled that The King's Fire is already available!

Life is hard enough when you are King of the Dragons. You are pretty much responsible for not just your dragons but most of the supernatural world. And it doesn't get any better when the younger brother you loved is suddenly your arch enemy.. AND Now there's this woman. She'

I received a free copy of The King’s Fire by the author in exchange for an honest review. Since I enjoyed the first installment of The Dragon Ruby Series, I really wanted to continue reading the second installment. This story begins with a redheaded assassin by the name of Athine. Her mission is to break into the Vampire King’s layer in search of her kidnapped sister. Athine knows that this may be a long shot, but she has nowhere else to look. As she goes one-on-one with a handful of guards, onl ...more

I will admit that when I began reading "The King's Fire" I thought this story would give us more insight into Viktor's character but continue on with the story of ano Grey sister. In many ways it did provide the insight I was expecting about Viktor but never imagined that it was totally centered around his future potential relationship.

Aithne has had centuries to come to grips with her the tragedy that scarred her childhood. Although she is in many ways human she is also not. While she followed

Sissy's Romance Book Review
This is book two in the "The Dragon Ruby" series. I have read book one 'Violca's Dragon' but I do think this book is a standalone book...but I love the series so far so I would read book one for the love of the series.
Aithne’s has been alerted by her mother that her old sister has been kidnapped. Aithne is not as close to her older sister as some families are but never the less she goes forward to save them again. Vampire, King Lazzaro is the one that has her sister and when she tries to take h

I love dragons possessive beasts they are and Chase's Dragon is no different especially with his mate Violca, "...she put the book on her dresser and crawled back into bed with Chase. His low growl let her know his dragon missed her, as he pulled her close and nuzzled her hair. Chase’s lips brushed against the back of her neck, reacting to her even in his sleep." Viktor is the type of man who doesn't appreciate his woman running, "he ducked, but before she could blink, he was standing in front o ...more

Family

What we all do for our family. Family is important no matter what one does we always have each other's back. Leilani has embraced it in a nutshell! If you believe in family ties this book is for you not only that there are dragons,vampires along with other shifters hoping to find their mates.

Second story in the series. The romance just gets hotter and steamy. This one is about the dragon king and the human assassin. Got to love a badass female who can take on a dragon.

overall, it was a great read I enjoyed, it had a wonderful plotline, did jump here and there between different characters point of views, but it was mostly seemlessly done, if you do not like sex scenes though, this may not be the book for you, if you enjoy shapeshifters, dragons, and strong willed women, then this is definately a book for you. if you are under 18 though, I would advise adult supervision while reading this. Always remember though, if you like a book you have read, ease leave a r ...more

Wasn't sure about this book but boy am I glad I was wrong!

Loved book 1 but wasn't sure I was going to like the main characters of book 2. I am glad to say that I was totally wrong! Book 2 just as good if not better than book 1! Glad I started this series but sad it took me so long to find it! On to book 3, woo hoo!! Can't wait till Leilani Love writes Katie and that beautiful black panther shifters storyline 😉

An assassin and a dragon?

Aithne is once again coming to the rescue of one of her sister. What she doesn't expect is to fall in like with the family of the person she is supposed to kidnap and exchange for her sister nor meeting Viktor ..is a it lust or something else. A fantastic read.

Getting better

I wasn't crazy about the first book but interested enough in the fate of the sisters to give the next book a try. The writing was better quality and more interesting in this second story, not so embroiled in YA angst.

I'd still like to see more in depth character building and a lot longer story. I am interested enough to try one more and then we'll see

Aithne's sister has gotten herself in a mess and it's up to her to do what the Vampire King commands and capture a dragon shifter for him. What she wasn't expecting was a sassy group of five sisters and she definitely wasn't expecting the Dragon King or her attraction to him.

Viktor has spent a long time trying to stop his brother but seeing the sassy woman who is able to stand up to him he finds himself getting more and more intrigued.

Secrets and subterfuge are the only ways Aithne knows how to

Ok book 2 was much better than the first. Yes it's basically same generic story line a person is forced into deceiving the one who is their mate only to lose their trust in order to replace it with love but the combination of Greek mythology and dragons and shifters witches and humans was just absolutely perfect. I pray she continues this series besides just the novella

The characters and storyline were well thought out and written. I liked that some of them were carried over from the first book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action and adventure with a bit of love thrown in also. I can't wait to read more of this series.

Who can you trust

Family means everything to Aithne also called Amy she has to hand over a Dragon to get her sister back. The king of Dragons has to protect his subjects. So how to overcome this little issue so no one gets hurt and the Dragon gets his mate. Great read looking forward to seeing he the rest of the earth witches intact with the fate of the supernatural.
