Kiss of Fire by Deborah Cooke

Kiss of Fire:
For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth's treasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr, who count humans among the earth's treasures, and the Slayers, who would eradicate both humans and the Pyr who protect them, is about to begin...

When Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt's New Age bookstore, she's not looking for adventure. She doesn't believe in fate or the magic of the tarot-but when she's saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she's losing her mind-or about to lose her heart...

Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr and a self-reliant loner. So when he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he's determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost to himself. Then Sara's true destiny is revealed-and Quinn realizes he must risk everything- even Sara's love-to fulfill their entwined fates...

Deborah Cooke has made me fall completely in love with dragon shifters, this book is a strong beginning to her Dragonfire series. I really enjoyed the characters and I'm looking forward to reading more of this world Deborah created, even the secondary characters fought for my attention, creating a vivid and well woven story. Tension and danger run rampant throughout the book keeping me completely captivated.

Sara has suffered the loss of her parents and her aunt in a short amount of time, and was burned by the man she believed she was going to spend the rest of her life with; needing change she moves and takes over her aunts New Age book shop. She is rather cynical about the contents of the store, but that all changes when a stranger enters her store and chooses some rather interesting reading for her form books on her own shelves. Having been rescued by a different handsome stranger the night before, Sara's life has gone from mundane to wildly exotic in the span of twenty-four hours. Her rescuer, Quinn, seems to know a lot more than he is letting on, but he quickly reveals the truth stating that Sara is his destined mate and he is a dragon shifter. Their attraction for one another grows and the more time they spend together only increases the sparks that fly between them. When Sara is abducted by opposing forces, Quinn is forced to turn to the other Pyr for help. After years of believing his best friend was killed by the leader of the Pyr, Quinn has trouble trusting them, but when it comes to Sara's safety he will do anything. More and more truths and deceptions are revealed making Quinn reassess all he believed to be true. Sara's influence is a strong guide to lead Quinn into trusting the Pyr, and a final battle will change their lives forever.
