“I feel like Grant writes the types of heroes that women want to marry and I definitely wanted to spend the rest of my days reading about Nikolai.”
~ Under the Covers

Returning to Donna Grant’s Dark Kings world is always a treat for me. I’m always expecting high-quality writing and a wonderful romance and so far, Grant has never let me down.

HEAT is book twelve in the series and it features the sultry Nikolai and a character that we’ve seen before in the series named Esther. Esther was possessed by Druid magic and was sent to kill others. Now that she has regained her own mind back, she is trying to collect her missing memories. Nikolai, the strong and silent one, is right there to help her.

I really loved the romance in this one. Although some emotions were present from the very beginning, Grant never uses that to spur on the rest of the book. She takes her time to build the relationship between Esther and Nikolai and in the end, I really loved how it turned out.

I’m a big fan of Grant’s heroes. They’re sturdy, sexy heroes who I feel like you can count on. They aren’t overly flashy or unnecessarily alpha. They are just the perfect blend of intense and comforting. I feel like Grant writes the types of heroes that women want to marry and I definitely wanted to spend the rest of my days reading about Nikolai.

Things with Ulrik and Con heat up as well and I love that Grant has been building up to this moment for a while. It makes loyal readers like me extremely satisfied to see everything plotted out so well over the course of the series. Other POVs are included as well, enhancing the narration and furthering the plot. I can see Grant writing a lot of books in this series without it becoming stale to readers and this book is proof that she is able to writing interesting stories for her heroines.

A lot of people have been asking me if they need to read Grant’s previous series to enjoy this one. I always think it’s best to read everything the way it was meant to be read, but I don’t think you’ll have a problem jumping into this world. Just keep in mind that you’ll encounter other characters from past series here.

About Donna Grant

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae. She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding. Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

This series is set up so nicely and has been progressing at a great pace. I’m excited for what is going to happen next with the queen and Con, and Ulrick and Con and the druid and Kings. It all mixes up to be an exciting read!
