Fiery Temptations (Hex Appeal series)
by: Victoria Davies
Released: October 2012
When a mortally injured dragon crashes through Mae's roof, she knows she should kill him before he wakes up. Everyone knows that dragons and witches are enemies, and she knows he won't hesitate to kill her once he comes around. But because she's a healer, she can't bring herself to kill a defensless man. Going against all she's been taught, she heals him. And when he opens his eyes, the last thing she expects to see in them is...lust?
Lucas can smell witch as soon as he regains consciousness, but instead of a desire to kill, all he can think about is stripping this witch naked and doing naughty things to her body. Knowing his reaction isn't right, he's unable to deny the fire that burns between them, and soon the two are scorching the sheets. But when the Witch King shows up at Mae's doorstep looking for him with the hopes of enslaving him, he knows he must stand and fight if he's to have any chance with Mae. But how can he force her to choose between her people and him, when he knows either choice will destroy her.
This book shows us how impossible choices can change the course of one's life, and how having the strength and courage to make that choice when your world is falling down around you can sometimes change your life for the better. Mae doesn't want to lust after Lucas, but neither one can resist each others' allure. I loved watching Mae fight for what she wanted, even though it destroyed something inside her to do it. I love how Lucas was willing to do what it took to keep Mae safe, even doing the unthinkable. This was a great love story, with lots of hot, steamy sex evenly interspaced with a wealth of emotional depth and growth. I really enjoyed this book.
