Dragon shifter Connor O’Rourke loves his life as a firefighter, but one thing remains missing. His mate. She left him high and dry with only a note and the memory of her kiss. When several mysterious arsons are committed in Dallas, the shifter is called in to investigate and discovers Jenna working at the local firehouse.

Jenna Dunne was betrothed to the strong and sexy shifter at birth. While there was no doubt she wanted to be his mate, she is a halfling and might never bear him the children he desires. With his species dwindling and the barbaric rules their society enforces, she knows Connor could toss her aside for another woman. There is only one thing she can do to save her heart. Run.

Connor has two choices, free his mate from the bond that was started long ago or fight for the woman he loves. With an arsonist on the loose, Jenna’s life is in danger, and their chance for happiness may come too late.



His Burning Desire features one of my favorite shifters, dragons. I love me some dragons, especially those oh so tempting Alpha Males. It’s a quick steamy second chance romance. 

I liked the uniqueness of the dragons portrayed here. They don’t breathe fire, but they do like fire, she is their mistress. That aspect was new for me, something I have not read before with dragon shifters. 

I didn’t like that they still follow old rules for the dragon society, but it’s set up for their to be change and if our couple can fix their relationship, they can be the first to help issue change. 

Connor and Jenna where a likable couple. They have really issues and fears, so it was easy to relate and feel where they where coming from. These two didn’t communicate their fears and how they truly felt, which leads to Jenna leaving Connor, but fate won’t have them separated for long. They find each other again and the flame that never went out burns even brighter between them.

The steam factor was scorching and oh my the males get a little BDSM on their mates, but in an oh so sexy way. 

I had a delightful time reading this seductive sultry romance. I would have liked more depth into the world and characters, more meat, but for a short read it was pleasurable. 

Rated: 3 Stars
