"an absolutely delightful and enthralling read"

As the lone female dragonrider, Elera alone has the ability to ride the bull dragon. Orphaned at an early age and raised by her paternal grandfather, Elera has always been spirited and is a warrior in her own right. Under pressure to mate with Ronin, the alpha warrior of her clan, Elera leaves her land in search of a mate of her choosing.

Also orphaned as a young child, Karl has pledged his life to that of the Mattaen, an ancient order of warrior monks. Upon hearing tales of mythical dragons, Karl discovers a virginal girl being led to sacrifice by the village elders. Convinced the elders are delusional in their beliefs, Karl offers up himself in her stead to prove there are no such creatures. However, within minutes of his on "virginal sacrifice", Karl is dismayed when he comes face-to-face with a "red-eyed, snarling, slime-slicked teeth dragon."

When a woman warrior comes to his rescue and slays the dragon, she demands her payment from the village -- one night with the virgin sacrifice. Being an Initiate of the Mattaen, Karl has studied that which he has vowed to abstain from - how to make love to a woman -- but at 30 years old, he has never known the physical pleasures of a woman. But after succumbing to the beautiful dragonrider's seductive charms, Karl awakes to find himself alone. Determined to find out more about Elera, Karl sets out on a journey that will change the course of his life.

Breath of Fire is a fast-paced, romantic fantasy set in a fantastical realm of dragons and ancient civilizations. Lush scenery and strong, independent characters makes this debut novel from Ms. Kane an absolutely delightful and enthralling read that I'm sure fans of paranormal romance will love. I eagerly await the next book in this new and unique fantasy series.

When the dragon came to claim him, Karl knew his great plan had gone horribly wrong. If he had known the creature was real, he wouldn’t have scoffed at the villagers… and he certainly wouldn’t have been so quick to let them chain him to a rock. Mattaen Initiates trained as warriors, but no man could defeat a dragon.

“My name is Elera, daughter of Shane. And you, Initiate, are my virgin prize.”

She had vanquished the beast and named her price: one night with the virgin sacrifice she’d saved. He’d taken a vow of chastity, but Karl still had a man’s needs—and Elera’s sultry curves made him ache to taste his first woman. With one scorching kiss she shattered his defenses… and led him into a world of deception and seduction, where he’d be forced to choose between the brotherhood that had raised him and the woman whose courage set his heart on fire.
