Taking place just a few months from book 7 of the Dragonkin series, "Light My Fire", "Feel the Burn" is the story of Kachka Shestakova , Elina's from "Light My Fire" sister, meets her match with King Gaius, a dragon shifter who is on a quest.
In the aftermath of Annwyl's killing of their uncle in the last book, Gaius and his twin sister Aggie now rule their kingdom. They hated their uncle and all those that ruled under them. Gaius is now on a quest to see all of his relatives dead, especially his cousin, who kept his twin sister, Aggie, hostage for years.
While on his quest Gaius runs into an acquaintance, Kachka, at a most opportune time. The two had always had an attraction for each other but as a Daughter of the Steppes, a group that doesn't hold much value of males and a Dragon King (a dragon much less) wouldn't find themselves together. But as the two are drawn together and spend more time together the attraction can't be denied.
If you love action, lots of laughter, blood and gore and more laughter, you'll love this book. G.A. Aiken, otherwise known as Shelly Laurenston, is a master at adding humor and drama to her books. King Gaius isn't one of those snobby royals. He doesn't have a problem getting blood all over him and fighting for his kingdom, which is good because if he was Kachka wouldn't have anything to do with him. Kachka is a warrior and hunter through and through and she's out to make a name for herself.
If I had an issue with the book, it would be that I would have liked to see Kachka and Gaius have more time together to get to know each other. I'm already looking forward to the next book. Although knowing this author, it may not be a story that would be part of this storyline. She doesn't always go in order, we could find her next characters back in time of the beginning of Queen Rhiannon's rein.
War makes strange bedfellows.
I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know that better than most, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman.
Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce—and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am, and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you’re with…
