“…sweet and sexy romance all set in an interesting new world…”
~ Under the Covers

After reading the Valos of Sonhadra series, a sci-fi alien romance series with each book written by a different author, Tiffany Roberts (as well as a few other authors) popped up on my radar. This in turn inspired me to pick up Make Me Burn the first book in the fantasy romance series, Isle of the Forgotten. When I started I wasn’t sure what to expect, I wasn’t even entirely certain whether it was a fantasy or a PNR. What I got was a surprisingly sweet and sexy romance all set in an interesting new world populated by elves, demons, angels, mages and many other species we have yet to meet.

In Make me Burn we don’t see much of this world beyond the Isle of the Forgotten, which is where the Justicars, an order of mages that dispense justice, send all their worst criminals once they’ve been stripped of their magic. As a demon who has wrought destruction for 3 millennia Morthanion definitely counts as the worst of the worst. Aria was born on the Isle of the Forgotten, but has been hidden away by her guardian so none of the men held captive on the island know about her existence. Until Morthanion spots her and is suddenly awash with feelings and sensations he’s never experienced before. All he knows? Aria is his.

I am not normally as massive fan of the whole bad-boy being tamed thing and Morthanion is definitely a very bad boy. However, both he and Aria won me over pretty quickly. Aria’s curiosity and resilience made her a very likable heroine and I loved her honest and open reactions to Morthanion. For Morthanion this is about redemption (he really has done terrible things) happiness and finding a new perspective on life which doesn’t mean a fiery death for those who annoy him. Do I think that just because you acknowledge that you have done bad things in the past that that’s enough? That he should now be free and clear as long as he promises to be a good boy… not really. However, as I don’t think too long on that point it’s very was to enjoy the story and characters as presented by Roberts.

What I liked most about this story was the romance, although Morthanion was an imposing, protective alpha type hero, Aria had her own inner strength and wiles that made her more than a match for him. I loved their dynamic and of course, the heat between them was unmistakable.

A really great start to the series, and I can’t wait to see what happens with some of the characters I’ve met, from Baltherus the scheming demon that has been on the island for over a century, to Keric the head of the Justicars. So, if you are after a fantasy romance than you definitely need to give this series a chance. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

I only read the first book in the Valos of Sonhadra series and it was definitely not for me. However, this sounds pretty good so I may have to check out this author

You might want to check out Tiffany Roberts book in that series, as each book is written by a different author they are all written in completely different styles. I believe the first one is by Amanda Milo and is a little…strange. I know not everyone loves the weird as much as I do lol!

I was thinking the same about the different authors. The weird was fine, even the beginning sucked me in, but, I guess since it was a novella things moved too fast, and it felt like some scenes or phrases were used to try and be funny but weren’t. And thanks, I think I will give this author a try.
