Ruthless dragon king Ladon Ormarr must keep his throne—and his people—safe from the cruel High King at all costs. With war on the horizon, he’ll need a miracle to protect his clan. Luckily, the fates have dropped the irresistible Skylar Amon right into his lap.
Or so he thought. Because the last thing this phoenix wants is him.
A phoenix mate is the ticket to securing his throne, but this fiery Amon sister detests Ladon, doesn’t stick to protocols, and regularly offends his warriors and advisers.
Skylar also has no intention of sticking around, nor does she believe in the whole destined-mates thing. But if it means taking out the High King who murdered her parents, she'll put up with the too-sexy-for-her-sanity Ladon...temporarily.
Their mating bond may make them want to tear off their clothes, but outside the bedroom...well, Ladon is positive the fates hate him. Just as he starts to win over the mercurial phoenix, everything goes to hell when the High King makes his final move. And Ladon will burn down the world to keep the mate he is unwilling to live without.
Each book in the Inferno Rising series is STANDALONE:
* The Rogue King
* The Blood King
Owen's spicy second Inferno Rising romance (after The Rogue King) proves to be a page-turner as Blood King Ladon Ormarr, a dragon-shifter, gets a shot at a political union that could put him in line to become the high king of all dragon clans. Powerful phoenix Skylar Amon, one of a quadruplet of sisters, was forced into hiding following her mother's murder at the hands of dragon-shifters. But when Kasia, one of Skylar's sisters, goes missing, Skylar emerges from hiding and infiltrates Ladon's clan's fortress in Ben Nevis, Scotland, to rescue her only to find that Kasia is not a captive at all, but is actually mated to Ladon's closest ally. Despite her skill, Skylar is quickly discovered by Ladon who is drawn to her strength, beauty, and the opportunity to arrange a marriage that could provide both political and tactical advantage in the brewing dragon war. Skylar reluctantly agrees, initially viewing the marriage as a business arrangement but warming to Ladon as she sees how he differs from the dragons who murdered her parents. Owen's high-flying fight scenes, sensual love story, and carefully planted hints at things to come make for a fun, fast-paced fantasy romance. Series fans will eagerly await the next installment.
