Finally, February is here and Erik’s book is out in the world! I’m so excited about the book – KISS OF FATE is #3 in the Dragonfire series, and features Erik, leader of the Pyr, as the hero du jour. (Click through for the back cover copy and to read an excerpt.)
My favourite element of this story is the twist – Erik, as those of you who have been reading the series know, has already had his firestorm. That’s why his hair is turning grey at the temples. When I met him – he walked into Sara’s bookstore in KISS OF FIRE and was very bossy – I wondered about that firestorm and what had gone wrong. I didn’t expect him to tell me. He’s that kind of a guy.
But he’s getting a second chance. Destiny had bigger plans for Erik Sorensson – against all expectation, his mate has reincarnated as Eileen Grosvenor, a comparative mythologist.
Worse, Eileen ends up in possession of some weird artifacts, which prove to be the elusive Dragon’s Teeth that Erik and the Pyr are seeking. Worse again, she’s on the trail of a story known as the Dragon Lover of Madeley, a myth that she can’t get out of her mind. She can’t understand why it fascinates her so much.
Of course, you and I can guess that Eileen and Erik hold the key to that story themselves – because it’s a story echoing the truth of their first firestorm and the choices Eileen made in her past life as Louisa.
The second time around, Erik’s firestorm is even more powerful than he recalled. He’s completely intrigued by Eileen, who is like his lost wife yet utterly different. The differences are intriguing – and sexy. Erik, even though unwilling to revisit the past, can’t keep the truth from Eileen, not once he realizes that it can help her to heal from the past.
Add the usual mix of Slayers and mayhem, lots of action and dragon fights, Erik spilling the beans about a bunch of Pyr history, the Wyvern’s first romance and Erik’s overdue confrontation with his estranged son, Sigmund. Phew! It’s a jam-packed book and one that I love to bits.
It also opens the door for Dragonfire #4, but I’ll tell you more about that next time.
I hope you all enjoy Erik’s book, too!
