According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he's now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep—until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon's dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman...
TURN UP THE HEAT
Bee isn't sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he's grown to love with fierce intensity.
Constantine has to watch the woman he loves with someone else as she is mated to another Dragon. Nevertheless, he will do all he can to save his fellow Wyvern's and if he can score points against his rival, well that's a huge bonus too! What he hadn't expected though was to find himself attracted to the mortal, Bee. Yes, she has a comely body that could satisfy even the pickiest Dragon but her attitude is anything but respectful. So why does Constantine find himself wanting to protect her and just how are they going to finally get even with the Demon Lord who has cursed them all?
I wasn't that happy with Bee in the first book but in Dragon Storm, we get explanations and if honest, she acquits herself very well. She feels badly that her sister suffered and helping the Dragons is one way to make amends. Bee is brave, snarky, and definitely no push over but that arrogant, irreverent Constantine is pushing all her buttons!
What can I say about Constantine? I loved that he delights in winding up the other Dragons and his way of scoring points is hilarious. Also I must point out, that guy has sex on the brain morning, noon, and night! His ideas when it comes to wooing Bee with toys just tickled me. What's really lovely though is his easy acceptance of Gary, who stole every scene he was in. No spoilers here but getting Gary a truck was the funniest thing I've read in a long time.
Okay, bottom line...this series is probably best read in order as characters from previous stories feature heavily. It's a fun light hearted read but it's about to get even more complicated I fear. Well written and a must read for Ms MacAlister fans.
