Adopted at birth, Ivy Morales always suspected she was more than human. Still, she keeps the outlandish thought to herself-even though she can’t ignore her powerful dreams of an ancient blood feud . . . or the darkly erotic turn of those hallucinations. Kidnapped in Mexico for her visions, Ivy has only one chance to escape: find the wickedly sexy man in her dreams.

Welsh dragon shifter Ian Madoc doesn’t understand the strange dream connection he shares with an unknown, beautiful woman. Yet after the seductive images turn into pleas for help, Ian rushes off in the middle of the night, hell-bent on rescuing her. But will she turn out to be the soul mate he’s always longed for . . . or the downfall of his entire clan?

For once I’ve actually been reading a series since the beginning … yea me!  This time I think it does make a difference.  Lopez does the best she can to keep you up to date on all of the goings on in the dragon world but it is just so much better when you’ve read Dead Sexy Dragon and Red Hot Dragon.  Luckily for new readers both books come in under 100 pages so it won’t take much to catch up 🙂

The stories up to this point have been HOT and Wicked Dark Dragon is no different.  We got a peek at Mad’s story in Red Hot Dragon and I knew it was going to be a doozy.  With Ivy imprisoned by the Knights and Mad out to rescue her it gets a little suspenseful.  And of course you have to have a climactic ending battle – one that actually has a huge surprise for the dragons. 

In between the fighting though Mad and Ivy get to know each other, which is very sweet … even if it is done behind bars.  Together they have the perfect amount of humor and passion that kept me turning pages – there were some great giggle moments but also a lot of sexy ones.  

Lopez seemed to deliver more action and danger with this one, which is a lot of fun, but she doesn’t scrimp on the heat and heart.  If you like your paranormal romance with a kick (and sizzle), the Dragon Heat series is a winner.  It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat one minute, fanning yourself the next and laughing out loud when you least expect it.
