One look at marine biologist Liz Barrett ignites the spark of the firestorm: Liz is his destined mate and his chance for happiness.

Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire, #1)Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire #1) 

One kiss can change the course of destiny... For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth's treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth's treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin... When Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of the tarot-but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind-or about to lose her heart...

Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr and a self-reliant loner. So when he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost to himself. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed-and Quinn realizes he must risk everything- even Sara's love-to fulfill their entwined fates...

Handsome, daring, and impulsive, Donovan Shea is more than willing to do his part in the Pyr/Slayer war. Assigned to protect Alex, Donovan is shocked when her presence ignites his firestorm. He has no desire for a destined mate, but Alex's intelligence and determination inspire him to join the fight to save her invention. With the Slayers closing in, Donovan knows he would surrender his life for Alex...and lose his heart to possess her.

  1. I know Brandon Merrick is unsuccseful at banishing his shifter nature but is it really possible for the characters to do this?

    I love shifter books and this sounds so unique compared to the bears, lions, wolves, foxes, etc that I usually read about!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I need to bring down Alonzo's book so I can read it and this one back to back. Curious does the child that Rafferty ends up adopting in this one?

  3. Thanks for the Giveaway! Love the covers :D

  4. Loving the book tour. Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Deborah Cooke is having problems posting to the site so she asked me to post her replies.....

    Hi everyone! Thanks for having me visit today!

    @books4me - Nope, shifters can't do that. The thing with Brandon is that he doesn't know what he can and can't do, and Chen is lying to him. He's believing the wrong person at the beginning of the book. Fortunately, there's Liz to straighten him out.

    @Raonaid - Rafferty's adopted daughter, Isabelle, has thus far appeared in his book (DARKFIRE KISS) and in the YA spinoff series (The Dragon Diaries) where she's all grown up. She'll pop up again as a little girl in an upcoming Dragonfire book - the Pyr are mustering....

    Good luck everyone!

  6. loving this tour!!!
