Nikki Gray has reason to hate the dragon hunters—they brutally murdered one of her friends a year ago. Not only that, they have caused havoc on several of the British dragon clans, injuring countless individuals. Determined to defeat the hunters by kidnaping their leader, Simon Bourne, she teams up with a human male in the UK Special Forces. After six months of work, they’re finally ready to carry out their mission and capture Bourne. However, one kiss derails their plans and changes their lives forever.

At the request of his sister, Rafe Hartley agrees to work with the dragon-shifters. After all, the dragon hunters are a pain in his arse and the fewer of them, the better. The woman assigned as his Stonefire liaison, however, is the same one he hurt four years ago in Afghanistan. Pushing aside their past, they learn to work together. Yet with each passing encounter, he is drawn to the lively, stubborn woman. He finally gives in to his attraction and kisses the dragonwoman. What follows turns his life upside down. 

Rafe and Nikki must now decide what to do with their futures. Can they still work together and find a way to capture Simon Bourne? Or, will their fated kiss result in a divide that can’t be healed?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surrendering to the Dragon In her determination to defeat the dragon hunters, Nikki Gray teams up with a human male to kidnap the leader of the hunters but one kiss derails their plans and changes their lives forever in this outstanding paranormal romance. At his sister’s request, Rafe Hartley agrees to work with the dragon-shifters, but the woman he is assigned to work with is the one he hurt years ago and the readers are pulled into this story as Rafe gives in his to attraction to Nikki and the kiss turns his life upside down. The passion and chemistry scorch readers from just about every page of this story, but that isn’t too surprising since we are talking about Rafe and Nikki, I mean their push and shove relationship has added quite a bit of snark and spice to the series since Rafe first began working with the dragons so that one kiss leading them on a relationship that is full of flying sparks, humor, passion and abundance of emotional turmoil is quite fitting as well as entertaining. These strong characters are quite charismatic and demand that the readers pay attention to their story while the fast paced and smooth flowing plot thrills readers with suspense, excitement and romance. Okay, the relationship of course is the main source of excitement in this story that much is obvious but there is lots more going on which keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of expectation and thrills. The hunters are plotting to attack, the humans still have to make their choice on who to put in office over dragon affairs and one of them could be a really bad decision for everyone and the missions keep getting sidetracked by various events. Another words folks, this story is non-stop action, suspense, and romance with some humor thrown in and there was no way that I could put the story down once I started reading it. Nikki and Rafe make such an outstanding couple that I completely blown away and they would be my favorite, if it wasn’t for the fact that I love them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from suspenseful & sizzling hot Donovan returns to Stonefire with a novel that will knock your socks off. Vivid descriptions bring this vividly crafted world to life as readers are kept on their toes with plot twists and turns galore. I love how readers are front and centre as laws are being made & the status quos are being challenged. This intricately crafted world is ever changing as events occur to change previous beliefs and necessities. It’s all so real. At the same time, suspense runs high and danger lurks around the corner. Topped off with sizzling chemistry and hot romance, how can one go wrong? I love how approachable yet larger than life the characters in this novel are. The role reversal in this one was priceless. Donovan flipped the entire male/female shifter roles while also maintaining an alpha male to beat all alphas. The Rafe/Kai animosity was integral in showing Rafe’s personality (and just plain comical to boot). His past with respect to dragons was heartbreaking but his strength admirable. And the way that he redirects his alpha instincts around Nikki? Fantastic! I enjoyed seeing Nikki’s inner thoughts. The different ways that she felt she needed to prove herself and her unique place in the clan was fascinating. Reliving Nikki’s past was emotional and shocking. It really served to create a connection with the character. The relationship between these two was awesome. The mate claim frenzy was as hot as ever, but the way that they truly got to know one another took it to a whole new level. Donovan has once again created a suspenseful and sizzling hot novel that had me surrendering to it. She pulled me into the intricate and unforgettable world that she’s created to escape reality for a short while. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
