Summary
Delaney, as we have seen in previous books, is a Pyr, only has been partly corrupted by 'Magnus', the head of the slayers, who forced him to drink a certain elixir, that has caused him to wage a war within himself. A war that he is still fighting himself, and after almost harming his brothers family, he is determined to find a way to win this inner battle. On his way to accomplish his mission, he comes across his firestorm, who makes him feel more like himself than ever before. He also knows he doesn't have a lot of time, and that his mission could very well mean his death. However he underestimates Ginger, who is a fighter and is willing to do whatever it takes to show him the true power of the "Firestorm" and by working together they can defeat Magnus.

The Hero
Delaney, once a powerful Pyr, was corrupted by his enemy, and he doesn't know if he will be able to win the battle that is waging within him, so he decides to destroy Magnus at all costs, even at the cost of his life. But when he comes across his Firestorm, he is overwhelmed, and at first only thinks of sating the desire, but when Ginger, follows him, he knows that there must be another way to defeat his enemy with the combined forces of the Pyr, and with the assistance of his mate...

The Heroine
Ginger, owns a farm but one night out on the town with friends, she meets a man, that takes her breath away. After spending a delicious night in his arms, she knows he is one of a kind, and when she wakes up alone, she goes after him. Ginger refuses to lose the one man that she knows is a keeper. But she is in over her head when she realizes who Delaney truly is, a Dragon, who she is madly in love with...

My Thoughts
Winter Kiss was such a fun and exciting story. I just fell in love with Ginger from the very beginning, she had spunk and attitude and I loved it!! Delaney, at times I didn't like especially in the beginning, where he basically finds his firestorm and just plans on sating it and leaving her pregnant and alone. That part I didn't like but as the story plays out, you start to like him more and more. From previous books we see the struggle that Delaney has gone through, so I truly loved reading his story, and I thought Ginger was just perfect for him. Winter Kiss is a truly fantastic story that will steal your heart, a tale of love and adventure, and that anything worthwhile is worth fighting for. ( )

Well mouth's went dry eleven times! But I read the excerpt for the next book and there is already a dry mouth so I know the next one will be just as good!I liked the story line in this one, but it almost seemed the writing was a little rushed. I caught quite a few discrepencies like for example: Niall was holding Ginger in his claw while fighting slayers, but tossed her to Eric. Eric caught her, and was holding her but she said something to Niall, when it should have been Eric, because after answering her, Eric set her down! So little things like that annoyed me,because it his her fourth book in the series and I feel like she should pay more attention to her writing. All in all, I really did like the story line and it was a good book! ( )

On a suicide mission to destroy the Dragon's Blood Elixir, Delaney encounters his firestorm when he meets Ginger Sinclair. (A firestorm only happens when a Pyr - a dragon shapeshifter - meets his destined mate, the only woman he can have a child with.) In order to fulfill his duty to his people, he detours from his main task and tries to get Ginger pregnant - and when Ginger finds out his intent, sparks really do fly.

A lot of secrets are revealed in this book that I don't want to spoil for anyone. If you haven't read anything in this series yet, you'll really get more out of this if you go back and start with the first book. (Which isn't great, and the second is seriously geographically challenged, but these have gotten better over time.)

Overall, the characters are enjoyable and comprehensible (except for Ginger on pp. 45-65 - a lazy attempt to move the plot along that made her seem like a moron. Fortunately, she redeemed herself later in the novel.) The romantic relationship between Ginger and Delaney grew over time, and it was nice to have characters from the previous books integrated so solidly in the story.

All in all, it was an enjoyable "popcorn" read. ( )
