A fun dragon adventure! 4.5 stars

Soul Fire ,
by Kelly Able
Gabriel is a hunter of evil magical beings. Because he asked questions in the wrong place by e has caused devastation.
Grace is Gabriel's wife, but she has been cursed by an evil witch. She is forced to live as a dragon and obey every command of the witch.
Our hero has to find and kill the one who torments his love.
This is part of a series, that should be read in order. I still enjoyed this though.

I love dragons and had to read this book when I heard about it in a newsletter. The authors give a variety of different time periods as well as different dragons and is a great way to catch up with your favourite dragon authors as well as meeting some authors you may not have read yet. Stocking the Flames is well worth the read and I had trouble putting it down once I started it.

These authors have outdone themselves to give us a set of steaming hot stories. Each story has the authors own unique twist and flair. My favorite stories were Linda Boulanger’s – “On the Wings of Time”, Solease M Barner’s – “Desired Revenge”, Darlene Kuncytes’ – “Promised to a Dragon”, Julia Mills’ – “Sadie’s Shadow”, Kate Richards’ – “Fire and Ice”, and Victoria Zak’s – “Scorched Hearts”.

This is a great collection of new stories featuring dragons and their soul mates. While I enjoyed all the stories I'll just mention a few of my favorites.

Promised to a Dragon by Darlene Kuncytes - the story quickly drew me in and had me wanting to know what would happen next.

On Wings of Time by Linda Boulanger - a captivating story with great characters.

Sadie's Shadow by Julia Mills - thisstory has all the elements for a great entertains story.

I really enjoyed Julia Mills story...

The start of a new series is a scary thing for an author. They always wonder whether their readers will like and buy the new books. I will say this "Julia Mills is always worth reading no matter what and I think this new series will fly. " I will be eagerly awaiting the next story.

This is a superb collection from a selection of the most prolific and best selling PNR authors out there. All have their own unique take on Dragons and their mates. They all have different background worlds and mythologies and I heartily enjoyed all of them.

I read one story from this anthology due to not having time to read more and I read Dragonslayer, Dragon Heart by Isobelle Cate. Ive read many books by this author in the past and Isobelle never disappoints, she has a wonderful way of telling a story, of making it believable and keeping the reader interested in what is going on between the characters.
The story is about a warrior who has being trying to slay his dragon for a couple of hundred years to claim his soul and while searching for her he

Devon (The House of Wilkshire, Book One) by Kathi S. Barton

Devon's first ten years weren't pleasant, but thankfully the last twenty-five have been better. He and his grandmother, Susanna, are the only family each other have and as such are very close.

Kelly has gone without in order to save for a month long vacation around the UK. After being betrayed by her sister, she's even more excited to fly to another country and leave her both her sister and mother behind.

Update July 1, 2017: I'm now 81% through the book and it's exactly what I suspected; each story is as interesting and as enjoyable as the last. It's amazing how authors can take the character of a dragon and give it her own spin so that it's a unique take on this remarkable creature. So recommend to any who enjoy PNR in general and dragon tales in particular.

So far I've only read Sadie's Shadow by Julia Mills, but if the quality of that writing is any indication, then the rest of the book must

DNF... I don't like the POV this is written in. the lead female is also infuriating, she's a petulant child and I don't have the patience to deal with her.

Merged review:

I started this with high hopes. I had to put it down after 2DNF stories. The first was too heavy with the Catholicism the second I wanted to smack the lead female character from the get go.

OVERALL REVIEW of Stoking the Flames II: This anthology is packed full of dragons galore. Some will leave you soaring while others will leave you on the edge of your seat. Either way it is an awesome package of stories like none other told. The authors went above and beyond to make this a package of books that is well worth your time in reading. It is amazing there's hot steamy romance, heart wrenching love for a child, and so much more. If you love dragons this is the anthology for you.

It was hard to decide what to choose for a rating on this one. I have several of these that I really loved, but there were a few that were just ok. One in particular made me cry, which is rare for a short story. It is a good mix of authors, though! The only think they have in common is the dragons and their mates. Some are happy ever after from the beginning, some are oh-hell-no-I-don't-want-a-mate type stories, and others are confusion reigns types.

Kali Willows, Curse of the Dragon Eye was fantastic! I loved the characters and the story line was amazing. So original.
I absolutely loved the dragon queen and her tale. Ureena is a strong woman working in the archeology field when her boss becomes seen in another light.
Hector is trying endlessly to get Ureena to go out with him.
It's then shortly after he persues her that things go terribly awry.
This book has an awesome story line. Dragon shifters and some past and present Egyptian history.

Good read

All the stories were very good. I now have new writers to follow. One of the stories had it had better editing would have been more enjoyable. But the other 12 ROCKED! I could not put it down, I've already sought their other books.

Read for the Julia Mills book.

Not my cup of tea.
Too overdramatised and I dislike the angel-devil aspect of it. Doesn’t really end with a HEA, as they have a child to save.

Oh My HOTNESS!!!! I purchased this book for Kelly Abell's story, which I totally LOVED, 5 stars!!!! This authors writing is so crisp and vivid, I was truly transported to her world, felt the characters and their challenges. I hope to see more adventures coming in the future for this hero and heroine and the others.

The rest of the stories ranged, for me, from 4 to 5 stars. I loved the variety of adventures, the locations, (and yes I'm a sucker on the ones with the Scottish brogues) the time perio

     This book has thirteen stories of dragons and the ones who are brave enough to love them . The stories are varied and each writer has her own way of weaving a story ,  They take us on such a roller coaster ride of emotions .

An evil spell was cast upon Grace by Madea the bad witch and its up to Gabriel Grace's husband to find a way to break the spell and get Grace out of Madea's clutches.

Out of thirteen flaming hot reads, I'm going to share my opinion on oh so lucky number thirteen. Scorched Earth was a new twist on shapeshifters for me. Not only did you have a dragon community (I'd always thought they were solitary creatures) but you also have a secretive Institute that studies the paranormal. Our heroine has grown up trying to prevent her dragon from taking over because she was raised with humans. Thane was a bit pushy though not knowing her secret, I guess it would be normal ...more
