Brandon Merrick hates everything about being a dragon shifter and figures it a curse more than a blessing. He has no qualms about accepting help from a man that he believes is helping him rid him of his dragon nature, but in fact has something sinister in store for Brandon.

Liz Barrett thought she'd lost her powers as a Fire daughter, a witch with the ability to control fire a long time ago. But when she arrives in Hawaii, she finds them coming back to her even though she doesn't want them back. When Liz comes face to face with Brandon, the firestorm begins meaning the dragon has met his destined mate. However, with them so uncertain about the powers they hold inside them how is it possible they can have a future together?

Each one of the books in this Dragonfire series has been an outstanding read and the plot to this one was just an extraordinary. Not only because Brandon was so determined to expunge himself of his dragon he would go to such lengths as to put himself in danger but because the heroine was remarkable in her own way. She had powers of her own, powers that had caused so much trouble in the past that she wasn't willing to risk passing them on to the baby they'd create during the firestorm. The dialogue between Brandon and Liz was intense because of both their issues with Brandon believing that being a dragon shifter was nothing but trouble while Liz had to deal with her own troubled past because her powers had led to the death of someone dear to her. The sex scenes were very passionate and showed how committed a dragon is to their mate during the firestorm and once it's over. What I liked so much about both the heroine and hero is their willingness to help the other and show them that being a dragon shifter or a Fire daughter really isn't so bad.

Overall, Ember's Kiss was an excellent addition to this series for this author and I can't wait to read the next instalment of this series which I'm certain will be just as enjoyable as all the rest. I would recommend this series to fans of the genre or anyone that wants to start reading this genre. Just make sure to start with the first in this series -- Kiss of Fire.
