characters there is definite heat and intense attractionThe secondary characters include all of the dragons previously introduced throughout the series Griffin and Avani book 2 are still experiencing the call to mate and the revelation of someone long thought dead adds a twist to the Knights s attempts to bring Ivy back aliveThe world building is a little detailed and developed in book three There isn t always room for vast amounts of back history elements or components in short stories but WICKED DARK DRAGON reveals information than the previous two storylines in this the reader begins to better understand the who what and whyLolita Lopez continues to build upon a history between human and dragons the ongoing war with the Knights and the dragon s need to mate With only a few remaining dragons in existence time is running out to ensure a future for their ownind There are moments of betrayal and revenge romance and love and in the end the storyline ends on a bit of a cliffhangerWICKED DARK DRAGON is an entertaining storyline a paranormal romance where another dragon finds his mate where betrayal comes at the hands of someone you The Palliser Novels know Lolita Lopez invites you into her world of dragon shifters Here s looking forward to many stories Book Review Wicked Dark Dragon by Lolita LopezIvy Morales is being held captive in Mexico She wasidnapped

she is confronted with by a shadowy man He comes to her in a dream world and takes her to the man who will save herIan Maddoc is a member of the Brotherhood His job is to protect his fellow dragons from the Men And Gods In Mongolia knights and humans He can smell the mystery woman that appears to him but he can t see her He has a strong feeling she is his mate Ivy can connect with Mad in this strange dream world trying to get his help She needs to be rescued as her strength wanesIan finally gets her message of where she is He is determined to save his mate The only way to protect her when he arrives in Mexico is to get captured himself and wait to be rescued by his brothers whom he left information for However something must have gone wrong Mad and Ivy are trapped in the prison at the mercy of the seer and thenights They are trying to force the bonding Mad refuses to give in He wants it to be up to Ivy when she is ready Once they escape the true battle beginsI like the Dragon Heat series Dragon shifters fascinate me and are one of my favorites I love the power they have and the fierceness the author gives them The storyline for this series is compelling The dragons are trying to save their species and bond with their mates In this book Mad comes across his mate and saves her Sigh She is special and needs protecting He fights his nature and his enemies to protect her Double Sigh It was interesting to read how they found each other and what they had to endure Ivy is a strong likable character Mad is an elder but fair and sensitive to Ivy s needs and peace of mind Triple Sigh Great pairing by the author I give it a 4 out of 5 Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyI enjoy reading about dragon shifters in general and I like the concept of the Dragon Heat series with its epic war between dragons and Hunter Killer (Pike Logan knights spanning over generations WICKED DARK DRAGON expands on the intriguing mythology giving a basis for the hatred between dragons andnights The plot of this story revolves around Mad discovering Ivy a woman he doesn t really Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, know has beenidnapped and his rescuing of her Granted his big rescue mission stops once he gets himself caught and thus must sit around waiting for other dragons to come to the rescue I was left wondering if he meant to be captured because he was taken down pretty uickly There was really not that much action and I was left tapping my foot waiting for the other dragons to come and bust Mad and Ivy out of prison and that scene happened so fast I missed itThe romance was the classic insta love but this one was insta love with a caffeine overload They set eyes on each other and are already in love Not merely attracted or in lust but love and The Friend Zone know practically nothing about each other I get that they have the concept of destined mates but both of them seem to not even uestion it even Ivy who is pretty new to the whole being a dragon thing Much of the book involved these two talking and cuddling I did enjoy some of the cuddling and sexy moments but I grew a little bored of it and impatient when the end of the book came near and they still haven t gotten out of prisonWICKED DARK DRAGON was an okay short read but left me wanting from Mad and Ivy s relationship and attempts at escape action and just pages. Ff in the middle of the night hell bent on saving the young woman he fears may be his mateBut rescuing Ivy from the clutches of the Knights is only the beginning of Mad's problems When Ivy's true identity is revealed old secrets and a close friend's betrayal put him at odds with the rest of the Brotherhood Protecting the dragon species is no longer his top priority He'll do anything toeep Ivy safe even if it means walking away from the only life he's ever nown25000 wor.

Blogged on Swept Away AgainFirst line Cold and hungry Ivy Morales blinked away the tears clouding her visionWicked Dark Dragon is the third book in the Dragon Heat series and it s been a while since we had a book in this series I m a big fan of Lolita Lopez aka Roxie Riveria and I ve followed along with all the things that s been going on in her life and understand and sympathise will everything and why it s taken a while for her to give us I liked Wicked Dark Dragon as we ve been tempted by this one for a while I wasn t sure if it was going to meet it s mark once it finally came out but happily it fits with the rest of the seriesThe main plot continues on from the previous two books but it doesn t feel tired or over done Although I hope the ongoing plot shifts or changes really soon because I get a bit bored of the same theme running through the first five books if it continues to be the same bad guy But considering the Dragon Heat series are novella in length it might not be too badI really liked Ivy and Mad together or apart they re good characters but together I think they re great There s a lot of spunk to Ivy and I liked that even though she might not have been physically strong she was mentally Mad was a really lovely character much softer than I was expecting He tried to be a gentleman towards Ivy a lot because she was so much younger and because of the circumstances of their situation Mad never wanted or made her feel pressuredmini spoiler aheadSo I liked the book the plot was good I enjoyed the character s so why didn t it get 4 stars Well there s a scene with other secondary characters characters that haven t had their HEA yet and they meddled between Mad and Ivy and I just didn t like it at all Basically Mad and Ivy get drugged by Mad s friends and Ivy s relative and it really annoyed me The drug is bascially going to make them really horny so they mate as Mad was giving Ivy time to get used to things and instead other characters meddle but it turns out ok because Ivy really loves Mad and she wants to mate with him anyway But it still really annoyed me Especially when there was no real retaliation to those characters or that one in particular who meddled Plus it annoyed me how it was all it was for the good of the cause and it was for Ivy s safety nope didn t do it for me Other than that I did enjoy Wicked Dark Dragon and look forward to books in this seriesSeries OrderDead Sexy Dragon 1Red Hot Dragon 2This review is based on the ARC of Wicked Hot Dragon provided by netgalley Thanks to NetGalley and Forever Yours for providing a review copy of this book NETGALLEY At A Glance Loved then hated it The Good So I haven t read the first two books and I am 50 50 on whether I needed to or not I understood what was going on but I can tell I missed a lot I just couldn t turn down a dragon bookI really liked the beginning I love books that start out with prisoners and torture I now I m weird but it really sets the mood Ivy and Mad were enjoyable strong characters for the most part I really liked them together I also enjoyed the action and dragon politics The Bad I didn t realize the books in this series are short About 130 pages I felt gypped because the story didn t feel complete at all You really have to read the whole series to get a full story that s my guess anywayIvy and Mad spent than half the book in prison waiting to get rescued Really Come onThe worst part was the forced sex This is spoilery While in prison the bad people give Mad and Ivy a lust drug that painfully makes them want to have sex The baddies wanted to force the couple s mating on them It was an uncomfortable scene but hey they are bad guys of course they are going to do bad things When Ivy and Mad are saved by their dragon friends guess what their dragon friends do The exact same thing They trick them into taking an even powerful sex drug that makes them vulnerable when the bad guys attack WTF The book could have been saved if the dragons who betrayed them were extremely punished But no they get a slap on the wrist those naughty dragons DIS GUS TING I guess dragon rape date drug is just not for me The Snuggly Well considering most of their sex scenes were forced on them because of a drug I can say I didn t enjoy the snuggly I actually skipped most of it because I felt uncomfortable Final Thoughts Some things are just not alright with me and the good guys giving the main couple a date rape like drug is not funny romantic or okay in any way I was actually going to stop reading and DNF the book but there was literally 5 pages to read and I thought I might as well finish it Not recommended uotes CheckmateWhat Again He sat back and studied the board How had he missed that Damn You ve whipped my ass every match todayI m starting

Goes off to help her on his own causing his own capture For over two weeks these two survive capture together and feel the mating bond grow Trying to figure out where his back up is and just what the nights want This was extremely well done Mad and Ivy have this connection almost a destiny but there is no forced feel to it The twists and turns that are discovered in their cage was wonderfully done While much of the book takes place while they are in captivity you don t feel like these two have fallen for each other because they only had each other Nope you find yourself cheering for them encouraging them and yes swooning a bit when Mad does his best to be a gentleman Hello he s a dragon I also enjoyed the way the Knights come off They are evil not all humans are portrayed as evil but the Knights Oh yeah It gives an entire new interpretation of those chivalrous Whalerider knights of yore And makes you think And I do like a book that makes you think I firmly think Ms Lopez is going to be around for a very long time And I will be happy to see her ShauniThis review is based on the ARC of Wicked Hot Dragon provided by netgalley and is scheduled to be released on March 3 2015 Nice

the series I loved Mad and Ivy And damn I didn t see the betrayal coming made for a really interesting twist Wicked Dark Dragon is book 3 in the Dragon Heat series Missy 5 starsOh my gosh Wicked Dark Dragon is so wickedly HOT It s just all the possessive mating taking claiming talk that is so sexy and shiver worthy Of course it s not all just about that though there is danger fighting and some sweetness too I loved it all this was such a great bookI immediately wanted to read Wicked Dark Dragon because I love dragon shifters They are one of my favorite types of shifters because they re all gruff and dominant with the grr she s my mate deal that just has me swooning every time And let me tell you Ian Mad Madoc was no different I totally fell for him He was all of those things but even than that he was so sweet and thoughtful and devoted I just positively loved himIvy was a wonderful heroine too She was so strong and smart and brave She was really just a total badas but I loved how she was with Mad She was possessive of him as much as he was of her but she was sweet too and she had no problem surrendering to him Wicked Dark Dragon is a fast easy read that s full of action some sadness really sweet tender moments and whole lot of HEAT If you love dragon shifters and you want a really fast steamy but still meaningful book it won t disappoint Wicked Dark Dragon is a standalone it s told from both Ivy and Mad s POV and they do get a HEA ending And I can t wait to read the next book because there s still a battle these dragons have to fight and it s going to be awesome Paige 4 stars You can tell this book was written by a woman Okay gender racism has raised it s ugly head using a self proclaimed feminist So I apologize but won t stop with my criticism These guys are dragon shifters and supposed to be super macho but they seem really touchy feely to me They re all worried about being gentle and slow and calm down take your time I just wanted to smash them in the face So maybe it s just me projecting my reactions into this book Not for me ABOUT THE BOOK 375 starsABOUT THE BOOK Release Date March 3 2015Adopted a few weeks after birth Ivy Morales suspects that
