Dragon shifter Thane Ealdian has waited six hundred years to avenge the loss of his family, and finally a clue has surfaced that implicates an old adversary. Thane will stop at nothing to seek his revenge, but to prevent violence between the clans, the Bloodkin Triad has forced a mediator on him. Some upstart named Emerson Clark...
Emerson is fed up with all Bloodkin and how they've managed to control every aspect of her life. While she doesn’t believe that Bloodkin can shift into dragons—because, really?—she has to admit, they are exceptionally nice to look at. But once the mediation is over, she wants nothing to do with them ever again.
When Thane discovers that the clever and beautiful Emerson is the key to uncovering the truth, he has no intention of letting her go. Although she wants to run, she can’t turn her back on Thane or her intense feelings for him. His quest pulls at her heart, just as his nearness sparks something dangerous inside her. With evil in hot pursuit, sooner or later everything will ignite—the mediation, the shifter within her... and their passions.

Tempted by Fire is Erin Kellison’s first book in her Dragons of Bloodfire series. Kellison brilliantly lined the pages with deep character and world building, creating a page turner until the end.
My least favorite thing about this book was the length. I wanted more! Even with the lean number of pages, Kellison manages to pack a surprising amount of back story for several of the characters onto the pages. Their backstories really made the characters into people you wanted to know more about.
Kellison pulls away from the typical romance cliche of the two love interests having a falling out and one of them having to come around or make up for some huge mistake. Thane and Emerson’s dance was more of a gentle glide of two people simply connecting, regardless of their differences. Both of these individuals were likeable in their own right and all in all the story was brilliantly written.
The world Kellison created was a unique view of dragons. Although, we only got a taste of the entire world It truly left me wanting more!
I think any lover of paranormal romance will enjoy Tempted by Fire.
I rate Tempted by Fire 4.5/5 bullets.
