Tempted By Fire is the first in the enthralling new Dragons of Bloodfire series by New York Times bestselling author Erin Kellison.
Dragon shifter Thane Ealdian has waited six hundred years to avenge the loss of his family, and finally a clue has surfaced that implicates an old adversary. Thane will stop at nothing to seek his revenge, but to prevent violence between the clans, the Bloodkin Triad has forced a mediator on him. Some upstart named Emerson Clark…
Emerson is fed up with all Bloodkin and how they’ve managed to control every aspect of her life. While she doesn’t believe that Bloodkin can shift into dragons—because, really?—she has to admit, they are exceptionally nice to look at. But once the mediation is over, she wants nothing to do with them ever again.
When Thane discovers that the clever and beautiful Emerson is the key to uncovering the truth, he has no intention of letting her go. Although she wants to run, she can’t turn her back on Thane or her intense feelings for him. His quest pulls at her heart, just as his nearness sparks something dangerous inside her. With evil in hot pursuit, sooner or later everything will ignite—the mediation, the shifter within her… and their passions.

Erin Kellison busts into the hot and popular dragon shifter sub-genre with a unique take on the mythos and captivates readers with strong and witty characters, a millennia old mystery, blood feuds, slayers, and so much more.
The world building is well thought out and beautifully built, building on that age old adage" Here there be dragons" and bringing it into today's world.
Thane and Emerson are a super fun couple. I felt she was a little naive at first, but I absolutely loved her spunk. And Thane... Can I just say 'sigh.' Their chemistry was intense and sexy, and the way he went from wanting to be done with his long life to wanting to live... for her... was utterly enchanting. Beautifully written in a way that made the reader feel like they were falling in love.
Kellison sticks to her dark and dangerous roots and gives us plenty of danger, action, and twists and turns, and the supporting characters left me wanting (and hoping) that we'd find out more.
All in all it was utterly enthralling and I couldn't put it down. If you're a shifter fan, a dragon fan, or even just a paranormal romance and/or urban fantasy fan, I think you will utterly enjoy Tempted by Fire and I cannot wait for the next book in the Dragons of Bloodfire series!
Dragons, wolves and assassins oh my!
I received this book for an honest review
I first started reading Erin Kellison's books when I got the reveler series first book for free. I fell in love with her writing and style.
In Tempted by fire she brings to us another set of characters that you can easily become attached to.
Emerson "Ember" Clark was a child tossed into the foster system and knew nothing of her heritage, one quick choice to mark that she was bloodkind to help pay for college set her on her path. She becomes a mediator between Thane (the male lead) and the Heolstors over the remains of a woman dragon and her child, who were murdered.
Thane is a dragon at the end of his life. The call of fading into the darkness has been calling him for years and he is about to give in till the bodies of his wife and son are found and some one has put a tempting fiery spirited mediator in the path of revenge. No one could predict what would happen when these two cross paths
She has done it again. Crating a female lead that is strong and independent and not just sitting around waiting for others to save her and make choices on how she is to live her life.
Our twisted hero is also a breath of fresh air , he's not your typical alpha, who totally dominates over the female lead and makes her bow to his whim and forces her to forget who she is to please him. Thane encourages Ember to be herself and seek her inner she dragon and courage. I love them as a couple
The only bad part is I have to now have to wait for the next book.
Loved this book!
I absolutely loved this book! Started reading it this evening and honestly couldn't stop until I had finished the book. I immediately fell in love with the characters. The book is so well written (as all her books are) that before you even realize it your 200 pages in. I would absolutely recommend this book and can't wait for the next one to come out!!
