Forced Proximity

I love, love, love this horny dragon book, so much so that I blurbed it:

Consort of Fire has everything I love in a book: enthusiastic sexiness, a delightful supporting cast, and fast-paced action that made the pages fly by. Add in a sexy, protective dragon god and two murder ladies—one softly seductive and one stabby—and Kit Rocha has written one of my favorite books of the year!

A woman is sent to assassinate the fae king, but finds herself trapped in his castle instead. She expects to die, but he’s been alone for fourteen years and even a would-be assassin is better than the ringing silence.

A respectable lady might not be able to survive the castle, but a scandalous one… a scandalous one might not just survive but thrive.

A woman whose fiancé dumps her just before the wedding on the advice of his older brother ends up moving in between them into a ten-foot-wide historical “spite house.” She plans to ensure it lives up to the name, but perhaps the older brother isn’t the monster she believed? Maybe she really is just that much of a disaster…

Deftly written and at turns hilarious, emotional, and heartbreaking, every word is like the kindest, gentlest hug to anyone struggling with grief or depression. I loved it!

(Fair warning, Olivia and I are friends, which is why I got to read an early copy, but it is devastatingly good.)

A young woman who knows the line between the luxury she has now and the starvation she grew up with is wafer-thin and ever changing uses her magical intuition to ensure she is indispensable to her protector. Unfortunately for her, she draws the interest of the god-like prince of the realm who feeds on pleasure and wants hers. But with her intuition oddly silent, will she be able to keep herself—and her friends—safe?

A young woman with a chronic illness has trained her whole life to become a scribe, right up until her powerful mother declares she’ll be undertaking the dragon rider trials. If she survives, she’ll be one of the most formidable soldiers in the kingdom. If she fails, she dies. The leader of her wing already hates her for the sins of her mother, but she plans to show him and everyone else just what smarts and stubbornness can do.

A fast, fun read with dragons!
