Avani Monroe is the last on her kind after the systematical eradication of her mother's rare and unique line, the Naga, by the Knights. In a last ditch effort to save her bloodline, she has a daring proposal for her enemy whose line is most compatible to hers. Any offspring they might have could result in that child inheriting her Naga gifts.

Griffin Cadogan is devoted to the Brotherhood of the Green Hide and his duty of protecting all dragons from the Knights. Seeing his friend Stig with his new mate has stirred a similar longing in him. But his duty is a dangerous one and he won't subject his mate and children to the dangers of his job. When Avani and asks him to help her by having a child with her, he's appalled and intrigued at the same time. Neither is looking for a commitment, however he only agrees if they do things on his terms. But a lot can change in nine days.

I enjoyed this second book in the series more than the first. It had a lot to do with the maturity of the characters and how they communicated with one another. When the blood feud between their families was mentioned, I worried at first that that would be the main obstacle or source of drama that would overshadow what they were trying to accomplish. Thankfully it wasn't really an issue. Since they had to spend their mating cycle in seclusion, they got to know one another in more ways than the biblical sense. Once they realized that feelings for one another were beginning to surface, I loved that they voiced those feelings instead of trying to hide them or talk themselves out of wanting more out of their arrangement. It may have been a little predictable that something would force Avani to embrace and use her serpent form, but it was nice to see her fight alongside her man rather than be one of those females who had to stay behind for her own safety. I love confident heroines and heroes who support them rather than coddle them. The sub plot involving Ian Maddoc hinted at something more dangerous than sneak attacks from the Knights so I am really looking forward to his story. If you're looking for a sexy dragon shifter romance, then this series is for you.

Oh dear lord. I pretty much drooled all over the first book in the Dragon Heat in my review, and the second installments totally did not disappoint. Red Hot Dragon is the story of Griffin Cadogan, Welsh Red thunder make, and Avani Monroe, last of the Naga line. Their relationship begins as a deal – Grif is the only shot Avani has at having a child to continue the Naga gifts.

Of course four days locked up together during synced up mating cycles changed that plan a bit.

The romance in Red Hot Dragon is well-built and given a decent opportunity to grow considering the length of the story. Grif and Avani are likeable and true, and there’s no unnecessary relationship drama between the two. Just lots of sex and some outside forces trying to get in the way of…well, sex.

There were one thing about this novel that I didn’t like – it’s not completely stand-alone. The drama going on outside the relationship is touched upon but left completely open-ended. I assume the story of Mad and Ivy will be continued in the next book, but the way they were introduced and then discarded without more information was blunt. It didn’t make me want to stop reading the series but it did keep the book from getting a higher rating.

I gave Red Hot Dragon four stars. Just like the first book in the series, Dead Sexy Dragon, this story is a must read for any shifter-romance lovers who don’t mind their books a little steamy. I’ll be watching for the next installment in the Dragon Heat series. ( )
