Heart of Fire Series by Lizzy Ford
Posted by brriske
Modern day retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.***
For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.
At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.
The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.
Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
I was gifted this book for an honest review by the author.
Charred Heart is a tantalizing dragon shifter read. I undoubtedly have an addiction to shifters. It used to be that my heart steered towards were’s but now I have a new found love of dragons. I love the heat that Lizzy creates with this book and the introduction of Chace, a one thousand year old Dragon. He is moody, sexy and comical- the greatest collection of male traits. We also meet Sky- Dragon hunter who has her own level of sarcasm that fits well in the dialogue between the two characters.
I love that Lizzy leaves the mind guessing when it comes to the plot. There were so many times reading this book that I thought I had it all figured out, but then Lizzy snaps me right back to reality. Her mind is just amazing when she creates these fantasy worlds. She weaves just the right amount of comedy, sex, and mystery to make me keep coming back for more. I cannot wait for book two to see how this pizza date turns out! I give this book 5 fangs.

New Adult Paranormal
Skylar is being hunted by the very people she used to trust. Stung by Chace’s betrayal, she struggles to keep one step ahead of the slayers while digging deeper into the past she doesn’t remember for answers. Her heart belongs to Chace, but she won’t be fooled by him again, not when the price of trusting him could cost more than their lives.
Chace got what he wanted – freedom from the curse – only to discover he’s given up much more than the power he didn’t want. He’s lost the woman who holds the other half of his heart. Exiled and powerless, he’s all that stands between her and the danger tracking both of them. To save her, he must prove himself worthy of her heart and trust and find a way to recover the magic he traded to become human.
Chace’s magic has not yet resurfaced, and he suspects it’s because he’s meant to earn back all he callously traded away – including Skylar’s love. Before their tenuous relationship can grow, he must learn what it means to put the life of another ahead of his own. But he must learn quickly or he risks losing Skylar and those she’s destined to protect.
