ABOUT: His kiss was fire and passion. She shivered, wondering how he knew just how to touch her, to
send her spiraling into an abyss of pleasure…

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have lived among mortals, forsaking their true selves. But for Kelton, hiding in the realm of shadows—and existing only in the world of dreams—is no longer an option. A human woman claims to know that he, like other dark warriors of his kind, is real. That the legends about these powerful, seductive men with hearts ablaze are true. And that, with just one embrace, Kelton could destroy her…or love her until the end of time.

Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist who knows better than to fall into the arms of a Dragon King. But how can she resist Kelton when he’s so willing to share his secrets and bare his soul? He hasn’t met a beautiful, trustworthy woman like Bernadette in…forever. But once they give into their mutual desire, their worlds will never be the same. Soon Bernadette must face her dilemma: Should she expose the truth about Kelton in the name of science? Or join him in his battle with the dark forces—in the name of love?


My Review:
Just when I thought this series couldn’t get better it does. Fever is surprisingly thought-provoking and tantalizingly sweet. A real page-turner.

What’s interesting about this book is that one of the MCs is “threatening” to expose the Kings to humans based on evidence from previous novel. I loved that tie-in because a major battle had been brewing and Bernadette’s character is basically the vehicle that finally sets major plot points in motion.

The book goes on further in providing the most crucial and alluring backstory I have ever read; I was on the edge of my seat and couldn’t tear my eyes from the page. The internal and external conflicts of the MCs seemed to have the power to make or break things.

Keltan certainly is the most interesting among PNR MC couples that I’ve read about. He stands out because of the rational place his present mentality stems from. I think that uniqueness in mindset is what makes his character so special. Also, I love his name and any time he talks.

I love how intelligent and open Bernadette is to something so different and sees things from all sides. She, like Keltan, is very rational and she provides much input into what’s going on. While she may not be as active you can tell from the beginning that she’s not like others and would have a critical role to play. She is without a doubt the perfect mate for Keltan; they are always on the same page.

What’s good about this series is that while I’ve only read a few books of Grant’s I don’t feel like I missed out of the overall story arc. I could fully read this as a standalone. The only things you’d miss reading this out of order or what-have-you is each couple’s relationship coming together. I very much would like to go back a read about certain couples. Everyone is so lovely.

There’s far more to the story than the summary tells. It serves a huge purpose in something greater than itself and I cannot wait to see where the story goes next.
