No man can win her heart—until now…

In the Gladium Province, the boundaries between humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, continue to blur as a new generation surrenders to long-forbidden temptation…

Sorcha Linden does whatever she wants whenever she wants, and no one can stop her. Least of all a man. After all, they’re good for only one thing—warming her bed. But then she meets Lorian Nightwing, brother of Lucius. Seductive and iron-willed, he is determined to melt her emotional defenses—and warm her rebellious heart.

The beast within Lorian longs to cage Sorcha and mark her as his own. Forever. Yet the man within also longs to protect her. When a stalker starts leaving Sorcha suggestive gifts with cryptic messages bearing an ancient blood cult symbol, Lorian’s dragon side takes over. With her life at stake, Sorcha can no longer deny the love they share. But when evil tracks her into the night, will she be too late to claim it?

The second book in the Nightwing series was a great continuation of the world we were introduced to in SOULFIRE.

I really liked both characters in WINDBURN. Sorcha is a sassy, confident and strong girl. Lorian is moody, protective and kinda stuck in his way of thinking. Together they are both stubborn, driven and hell bent on getting under each others skin, which made for a fun read waiting for them to finally give in and jump each other.  

The stories in this series are really short and to the point. The author does a great job of giving us the necessary details in a short amount of time. The world is revealed a little more with each installment and the secondary characters end up being almost as important as the main characters because you just might see them in the next book. I am excited to see who gets to fall in love next.

I gave it 4/5 stars
