  1. Rating 2.5I bought this book because I thought the cover was hot Then I went to to check out the reviews One person said she disliked it because there was an overabundance of sex Well, that was pretty much an endorsement for me I ponied up the 9.99 way to much for a romance ebook and bought it.Dark Embers had a lot of structural problems The most annoying was that there were a lot of inconsistencies when people stood, sat, were dressed, etc Someone would be standing, then they d be sitting then [...]

  5. Loved this book Dylan was a total alpha male Only thing missing was thumping his chest The world of the shifting dragons was really great I mean yeah we kinda at this point have heard and read it all but still I loved it Some sad moments of loss and some serious sex all over the place with these two characters Plenty of action as well I liked that it wasn t love at first sight Yeah Dylan felt a weird pull but didn t think anything of of through most of the book I cant wait to get to the next boo [...]

  7. I read some of the reviews and I agree with some of them and others make me wonder if the reviewer skim read the book One reviewer says that it s never explained why Dylan is so reluctant at wanting to make Phoebe his mate, if you read the whole book it is explained several times.Another reviewer says that the back story for Phoebe is never fleshed out, again I m puzzled because we find out several things why she became the scientist, why she doesn t trust men, and what was done to her by person [...]


  8. Occasionally i use this phrase perfect book when I m reviewing something I ve read This book gets that qualification It has everything A hot hero, a spunky, supersmart heroine, dragons, blood feuds, biological warfarewait, did I just say biological warfare Yes, I did Trust me, you won t be sorry to have read this I love the world Tessa Adams created Read this.


  9. My Review Dylan MacLeod, dragon and King of the Dragonstar Clan, is unwillingly leading his people straight towards Death s door During his four and a half century existence, Dylan s fought and won many a blood soaked battle but the microscopic entity that s currently destroying his dragons is one battle he can t conquer As if he wasn t under enough pressure, Dylan still has yet to find his mate and provide the clan a much needed heir As the last pure blood dragon, it s his duty to continue the [...]


  10. Well, I ll get it out in the open first thing I ve wanted to read this book because the cover caught my eye I mean, come on What healthy female wouldn t like this cover, for heaven s sake I didn t even bother checking to see what the book was about beforehand I had the chance to pick it up, so I did, no questions asked Then I found out it s dragons.And then as I got into the story, no doubt about it, this is my kind of book Total alpha hero, intelligent throughout the story too heroine who stand [...]


  11. Dark Embers was a great intro into a hot, new dragon shifter series I loved it Part of it was a bit predictable, so that kept it from being a full 5 s for me, but otherwise it was a deliciously sexy read We are introduced to bio chemist Phoebe Quillum who is working hard to find a cure for lupus, the disease that took her mother and sister But, Harvard has just notified her that they are having to cut back, her grant is ending In New Mexico, Prince Dylan MacLeod, the last pure blood dragon shift [...]


  12. This is a wildly sexy and fast paced book Lots of layers and fantastic secondary characters A great start to what will, no doubt, be an awesome series I like this author s style This amazing world of dragon shifters and their special abilities just sucks you in It was also incredibly emotional, especially early on when they are struggling with the virus attacking their people The author did not hold back on the pain and grief these characters had to endure This is a very spoilery comment But it [...]


  13. 3.5 starsFavorite Quote He wanted to dominate her, hadn t been able to stand the thought of her saying no Had Prince Dylan MacLeod listened to his father he would have his mate and locked into his powers But he didn t So now he uses his time and dark sexual appetites to search for his destined mate His search is put on hold as a deadly disease sweeps through his people killing them off He finds he has to venture into the human realm to find a cure There he meets Phoebe Quillum a biochemist who m [...]


  14. There was so much sex in this book it was actually off putting and pretty much destroyed the story line for me Some of the sex scenes kinda creeped me out as well, specially the whole mist thing I didn t like being at like 80% in the book and not have a solid grip on what s causing this illness the dragons are suffering from That was really bugging me, it seemed like once I started reading that was the main plot point finding the cure for what was causing dragons to die, but it took a backseat q [...]


  15. I really enjoyed this book I loved the concept of dragon shifters It was interesting to read about a species of shifters that was wolf or cat I enjoyed the heat and passion between Dylan and Phoebe Their romance was very steamy and smoking hot Phoebe was very smart and I love that she wasn t a pushover Even though Dylan was king, he was imposing He was very relatable I also like Quinn and Logan I m anxious to read about them in the next two books I felt really sad for Gabe It was really horrible [...]


  16. 3.5 stars.5 for the hot cover.A promising start to a paranormal series Hot scenes and with enough action to satisfy Although there is probably a bit tragedy than I like since practically everyone s relatives seem to get killed in this first book I know that s part of the whole story and background building but still.Looking forward to seeing how the world evolves in the coming books.


  17. Okay, so I didn t know what I was going to get with dragon shapeshifters but let me tell you, Tessa did a great job I fell for Dylan, king of Dragonstar and Phoebe our human was just as awesome This was a quick moving, sexy and hot read Recommend this read and look forward to the next book in the series.


  18. Well, I really liked the story line, but there was just way to many sex scenes for me I like sex in my romance books, but every other chapter is way too much I did enjoy the story line, and will read of these, but I really have to skip alot of the sex.



  19. This book is so steamy, so exciting, if it doesn t make your undies smolder ing will Good Lord find me that dragon


  20. AWFULIf you want a good story, with kick ass characters, then read Blood Bonds by Adreinne Wilder or Stormwalker by Allyson James.


  21. This book did start out well, but I agree with the other reviewer in that the sex scenes got quite repetitive to the point where I was actually skimming most of them to get back to the story I think that the story itself was interesting, and I would have liked to have seen about the dragons and their world The author completely drops the ball at the end too The hero actually thinks to himself, Well, we haven t yet found a cure for the disease, and we ve just started a war with another clan, but [...]



  22. I have mixed feelings.The good news I liked the idea of both characters I liked Dylan s protectiveness for his clan and how deeply upset he is when they are hurt or killed He has strong bonds with his friends and knows when to discipline them as well He seems like quite a good leader, for the most part The problem I did have with his leadership, however, was how when he found Phoebe his incredibly important and time sensitive NEED to find out what was killing his people took a backseat to nookie [...]


  23. I think that it always says something about a book when you purchase it one evening and finish it the next I had been anxiously anticipating the arrival of this novel, which caused me to put it on a higher pedestal than any book aught to be But, much to my joy and relief , this book was able to meet the mental bars I had put in place Dark Embers is a fantastic debut to a new erotic paranormal series, that will take you an a scorching hot adventure, and leave you wanting .First and foremost, I mu [...]

  26. My review is going to be slightly frustrated sounding than usual Also the Rating absolutely reflects how I feel I waited two whole days to make sure I wasn t just over reacting to write this review I still feel the same, so to the two star rating When I read the synopsis for this book I was excited I love dragon shifters novels, be they romance or fantasy I ve loved dragons all my life and this has carried on into my adult life and reading pursuits I like the cover to this, though the man on th [...]


  27. I ve had DARK EMBERS sitting on my TBR pile for a while now the cover initially attracted me the background setting, colours and hunky guy were a nice combination and the fact it had dragon shapeshifters sold me on the story It was something different from the popular vampires, werewolves and cat shifters.One of the stand out parts of this story for me was the plot the idea of a genetically engineered disease as awful and devastating as Ebola and the mystery surrounding it on how it was only aff [...]
