Keltan is the Dragon King of the Citrines. He has no interest in finding his mate. Keltan attends a special meeting for cryptozoologists as a representative of Dreagan. When the guest speaker threatens to expose the Dragon King’s existence, Keltan knows he must take action. However, he never expected to be attracted to the intriguing doctor. The war with the Queen of the Light Fae looms. Can Keltan convince Bernadette not to expose his brethren? Will he finally admit that she is his mate? Or will it be too late?
Dr. Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist. She throws away her career and reputation to convince the world that dragons exist. Bernadette expects someone from Dreagan to intercept her, yet she never imagines she would be drawn to him. When she learns that Usaeil used her, Bernadette soon finds herself drawn into the war between the Light Fae and Dragon Kings. What part will Bernadette play in the upcoming confrontation with Usaeil? Will she survive the encounter?
Keltan steadily grew on me. I like that he is the only Dragon King I can remember with a beard. I am not into men with facial hair, but it is a nice change of pace than the usual clean-shaven appearance. I understand Keltan’s reluctance in finding his mate. He has seen the destruction that humans have caused over the years, especially to his kind. What I adore the most about Keltan is how he balked at the idea of besmirching Bernadette’s reputation. He understands it’s necessary to stop her from exposing them to public scrutiny, but it did not mean the idea sat well with him.
It took me a while to warm up to Bernadette. She came across a little too bland and timid for my tastes. I would have liked her more if she had a fraction of the spunk that Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory television series had. I admire that Bernadette did not expect the Dragon Kings to immediately believe her. She knows that trust is earned, and she did not give the Dragon Kings reason enough to put their faith in her. What I like the most about Bernadette is her sense of right and wrong. After she realized her error, she strives to fix all the wrongs she committed against the Dragon Kings.
FEVER is book sixteen in Donna Grant’s popular paranormal series, DRAGON KINGS. It is necessary to read the prior books to understand everything that is happening in the story’s background. I love the little hint the author gave to why the Druid population is declining. Also, the author divulges a little more information about the enigmatic others.
FEVER is beautiful tale of two wary souls discovering love during a tumultuous time. Things with Usaeil are finally coming to a conclusion. However, that does not mean the threats against the Dragon Kings are resolved. I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
