The breathtaking conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant’s HOT BLOODED e-series!
Iona’s heart pounded in her ears like a drum. Her life was being dismantled one piece at a time. What was she going to be when it was all said and done?Laith squatted beside her and cupped her face in his hands. “Look at me. Look into my eyes. What do you see?””You,” she said. “I see you.””Remember that, Iona Campbell,” he whispered before he kissed her.
A DARK KING AND HIS MATE
In HOT BLOODED: Part IV, the situation goes from bad to worse. Laith, Iona and the Dark Kings are preparing for a showdown. Winner takes all, but neither Laith nor Iona can stand to lose, especially if it means losing each other.
Worldbuilding: So in love with the Dark Kings world!
Characters: Yesss, the HEA for Iona and Laith, and it made me so freaking happy 😀 Their love isn’t the insta-love kind, and despite being drawn to each other since the first time they see one another, it felt like a slow burn wove story. They both changed due to their growing feelings, they evolved, took chances together, became stronger together. Much love!
Plot: With the romantic resolve came a healthy serving of action, the resolve of the Ulrik versus Dragon Kings conflict of this novel (though it’s obvious the man is up to something even bigger, can’t wait to find out what!), and another instance of the Dragon Kings versus Dark Fey, which ends in a very fun way, though the whole war thing is nowhere near done.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, mostly his and her POV (Iona and Laith).
Curb Appeal: As with previous parts of the serial, smexeh cover, hooking blurb, instant-buy author name.
I will confess I read all of these babies in one go, not with one week pauses between them. I started out reading the first, determined to only read the first, and then next thing I knew it was 6 am and I’d read the night away 😀 That’s how fun these novels are, and that’s how badly you just have to read them too! Fully recommended.
