Griffin Cadogan is shocked to see Avani Monroe, sworn enemy of his dragon family, walk into his gym. With his mating phase soon approaching, Griffin is curious as to why she has to come enemy territory knowing the risks. Not only does she surprise Griffin and his cousin, Mad, by coming to enemy territory, but what she wants is borderline insane-Griffin must help her have a baby.
After her mother's line was annihilated by the Knights, Avani accepted her duty to ensure the continuation of their unique dragon breed. She's searched the dragon registries and Griffin is the most likely candidate for her crazy plan. Working up the courage to approach a man who considers her an enemy wasn't easy but she manages to calmly lay out her carefully orchestrated plan.
But Griffin isn't about to agree to her harsh terms. If she wants him to father her child, he intends to play an active role in his offspring's life, not simply walk away as she requires. Shocked by her instant attraction to him, she agrees to his terms. Once together, they realize their connection is about more than creating a child, but that happiness is short-lived when Mad suddenly disappears. Knowing the dragon slayers are behind it, Griffin must risk it all to save the ones he loves.
Having recently finished Dead Sexy Dragon I was curious as to how this series would continue; enter Red Hot Dragon the second book. Each book is independent of the other so reading out of order can be easily done.
This story focuses on Griffin and Amani’s journey. Their two families have been “at war” for years and any relationship between the two is almost forbidden. When Amani requests a favor from Griffin he surprising agrees and that changes everything for them.
I really liked Red Hot Dragon; a little bit more than Dead Sexy Dragon. I think it was Griffin’s character. He has that easy going, care-free type character which was completely different than Stig’s remote, leave me alone type attitude.
The sexual situations were explicit and super-hot. Griffin’s and Amani’s relationship was one that balances each of them and makes for a better couple.
Overall another great novella from Lolita Lopez and I am looking forward to completing this series with Wicked Dark Dragon which releases in March 2015 and is the story of Griffin’s cousin Ian who we glimpse in Red Hot Dragon.
