One human girl...
Five scorching hot dragons...
A thousand reasons not to want them...
None of those reasons matter!

It’s been five years since my great-aunt and her husband rescued me from foster care - and since I discovered dragons exist. For reals!

Yeah, I had a hard time believin

A really good continuation from the free prequel!! Lots of fun and I’m excited to see where the story goes from here out, and I love the new talents that Favor is developing. And of course, love the boys!!

It's ok. Bit one dimensional. I disliked Favors immediate body and heart reaction to the guys, too insta for me and for most of the book she seemed like a foolish and completely incompetent teenager with huge ego. For all the big talk on how she wants to prove to Max that she can be an independent and qualified PI and despite developing some insane powers, she just strings along the 5 dragons and passes on the information her uncle gives her. She doesn't solve anything and doesn't obtain any inf ...more

And I’ve started another series. A dragon keeper human and five dragons, three brothers and twin cousins. No sex just yet but there is hints of romance and subtle moments. All private investigators so it’s going down the mystery route. I wouldn’t say it’s enemies to lovers as it’s all one sided and very light. Dragons, bonding, violence, a strong MC. Not quite a cliffhanger but questions left unanswered. Favourite part was Chad getting what he deserved. Looking forward to the next one.

Dragons are real! They live among humans and unless you're like Favor, a Keeper, you won't know. Not unless they want you to.
Favor was orphaned at age five. Believing to be alone, she was bounced from foster homes for years. Then she was sent to live with her long lost aunt Shirley and her husband Max. Five years later she's still there and living a normal life. Well normal for her.
This story arc has been fast paced from the beginning. Told in first person, we come to know Favor as she s

So if you have read the prequel, The Glow of the Dragon's Heart, you have been introduced to Favor. Here in the Spark of the Dragon's Heart, five years have passed. She is helping out at her Uncle Max's PI agency. When he leaves suddenly to help a friend, he leaves asking her to finish a case he was working on. When it becomes difficult, she has to enlist the aide of Max's nephews. That is when things start to get real interesting.

Note: I received this book from the author and I voluntarily give this review, it is my honest opinion.

Reverse harems are popular right now and I couldn't be happier, I love a good paranormal reverse harem and I have found another to enjoy. The Spark of The Dragon's Heart is the first book in the Harem of Fire series by Willa Hart and it was so good and I had more than a few laugh-out-loud moments and for me, that's a marker for a good book.

This is a really well written story! I absolutely loved reading it and these characters. The world that Willa Hart has created has sucked me in and I am not ready to leave. I can't wait to get the next book in the series! This is the first book in the series but there is a free prequel (not sure if permanently free) that I would recommend reading even though it is not necessary. I loved the insights that we get with the characters from reading the prequel first. You really get to know Favor and ...more

The Spark of the Dragon's Heart is a somewhat balanced book, there is sparks(ha!) of romance and a mystery with a structure of plot that would carry out through the series. It's nothing unique but whatever it delivers, it does it well.

I found the characters okay, the guys are stereotypical but easy interactions with Favor make them more lively. As for Favor, I liked what I saw in this book. She reads like a very relatable character with her thought process and reactions to various situations th

Great start

Book one was much quicker paced and exciting compared to the prequel, though the prequel helps understand the relationships between Uncle Max, so? Shirley and the five nephews and how Favor came to be with her Aunt and Uncle.
This book just kind of ends. No resolution to the storyline, just advancing the over all arc. It was really good and the entire series is out, so will keep reading. This is told in single POV form the LC Favor. She works for her uncle at a PI firm that hasn't come

Buyer beware! This book ends in a cliff hanger! Other than that, WOW! What an awesome tale. I have not read the prequel, but I was able to jump right in and get to know the characters from the first page, and what characters they are! What is not to love? Ms. Hart is a new author to me, but she sure knows how to pack a punch. I am not normally a fan of serials, as I like to read the whole story all at once, but I honestly think this will be an exception to the rule. The tale is well paced story ...more

A dragon shifter book that packs a literal punch and lots of fire!

Wow... Just wow! If you haven’t read the prequel to book 1 of Harem of Fire, you need to do that immediately. If you have, before you pick this book up prepare yourself. It packs a punch. Ms Hart has managed to fill it to the brim with story. Favor’s Uncle Max has disappeared to help a friend leaving her work her first PI case alone. Because of her client’s prejudices, she’s forced to contact the only dragons of any stature she k

This book really intrigued me. Who doesn’t like the idea of working with 5 good looking dragon shifters? Favor is a woman who has lived a hard life, bouncing through the foster care system and never really having a place to call home. That is until her great uncle, who is a dragon shifter, brings her to live with him. She ends up attending college and working as an assistant at his private investigating firm. When she is handed her own case she is forced to ask for help from his disowned nephews ...more

Favor is given her first investigative case when Max leaves town. She’s got to find Enoch, but she is going to need the five nephews’ help to do it. A few things covered in the prequel are mentioned here as part of the build up of the story.
Favor is going to become a dragon keeper. It is yet to be determined who her dragon(s) is/are.
The race to find Enoch sees Favor demonstrating new skills that have never been in her life before the boys. That’s a misnomer if there ever was one. These are men,

We pick up 5 years after the prequel, showing a grown-up Favor, still working for Max and Shirley(her aunt and uncle).
He goes to help an old friend and Favor gets her first case, but she needs help, mainly some dragon-y help so the other dragons actually give her the time of day.

This sets off a mystery, following the leads left by Max, meanwhile getting to know the five dragons that are his nephews (these nephews are not related to her by blood in any way FYI, s

This is a well written book with strong characters and an interesting story line. The author does a great job building the story and pulls you in with tons of emotions as well as all the action,danger and suspense. She adds in twists and turns as well as humor.passion and romance. She brings the story to life with her descriptive writing and detailed scenes and had me hooked from start to finish and left me wanting more with the cliffhanger ending.

am so glad that I read the prequel first. It made Spark of the Dragon’s Heart more enjoyable.

The Spark sets up Favor and her adventure using all the skills she did not know she was learning while working for Uncle Max. Things heat up as she meets and starts working with Uncle Max's nephews. I loved Zoey and even Rufus. The bond between Zoey & Favor was awesome in the strength and imperfections.

This was my very first time ever reading anything from this author and let me tell you she doesn't disappoint. This fast-paced read had plenty of intrigue and action to keep you hook from beginning to end. Plus who doesn't like the idea of having your very own harem of dragon mens. It's definitely a slow burn since there hasn't been any really intimate moments. Overall a enjoyable and entertaining read looking forward to seeing what else is in store for this series.

I don't think it takes special powers to know someone is drunk/drugged. I know it goes with the storyline, but why was Zoe so stupid and out for only fun, not safe fun! I don't understand this!! Free drinks are rarely free!! Favor's tear show over Enoch rang so false imo, that it was laughable. I just couldn't! At the story's end Zoe remains her immature, obnoxious, self and Favor seems to be the 8th wonder of the world-NOT!!! She'll have to get more mature to be taken as more than falling into ...more

She loves her uncle who adopted her and is teaching her about both worlds but then he goes out of town and leaves in charge of her first big case alone. She immediately runs into trouble and needs help. She turns to the last group of people that her uncle would want on one of his cases. Or did she?

No no no! The beginning is a complete disappointment. The use of words like "totes" for college students was driving me insane. If I hadn't read there prequel (which I loved)I would have stopped reading this book immediately. The MC was just ok. She went back and forth with being really weak/ stupid to having insane strength and being over confident. Overall I wish she was more interesting and more relatable but I do want to know what happens so I'll read the next book.

PI Adventures and Sexy Dragon Shifters

The Spark of the Dragon's Heart is a funny, adrenaline-filled slow-burn reverse harem, or the start of one. Favor is one of the best heroines I have ever read and the Novak brother's and their cousins are absolutely adorable. I don't normally like slow-burn romances because they exasperate me but the way Willa Hart weaved comedy, action and crime mystery made me forget my complaints with slow-burn romances. I really enjoyed the read even when all I got of se

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
This was a great book !
Dragons are real, and Favor is a Dragon Keeper.
She acts as bridge between humans and dragons.
On top of that, she is attracted to 5 dragon shifters.
Not 1, but 5
What will Favor do ?
You will have to read the book to find out.
Loved the characters + the storytelling !
It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book!
I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Awesome start to the series!

My first read by the author and it did not disappoint! This was a fun read, the characters were awesome and the storyline was amazing. It will grab you from the start and have you wishing for the next book a.s.a.p. since it does end in a cliffhanger. I am so happy that this book and author was recommended to me and can’t wait for the next book in what looks to be an amazing series.

Quick and quirky

I read the prequel after seeing the series mentioned in a book group I enjoy. It was intriguing and convinced me to buy the first in the series. Knowing that Willa Hart only releases the first book after she’s completed the entire series, makes buying them feel like an even bigger win. The books are fun with many pop culture references the characters are well developed.

This was a good start to a new series. I have not read this author before and really enjoyed how she told this story. I'm new to and not sure about reverse harem books. I mean they sound good in theory, but the jury is still out. With that said, I have to say that I liked the slow build and the shock of figuring out exactly what was happening between the main characters. Also, the added bonus of a great mystery to solve made this a very enjoyable book. ...more

Brilliant start to the RH series, heroine knows her own mind and is kickass! All 5 men have their own personalities, so are easily distinguishable between each other!
No OW whatsoever, no mention of other partners for the men, and not much detail for the heroine either.

No smexy times yet, only a heated kiss with one of them. There’ll be no M/M either as all men are related (brothers or cousins). Doesn’t get 5 stars as only the heroine’s point of view.

Just like everyone else in the world (except politicians and the entire Kardashian family), Willa Hart hates talking about herself. Seriously, what's she supposed to say? That she's the most talented author in the world? That Liam Hemsworth, Zac Efron and Michael B.
