Anna Lowe’s vivid world of shifter politics, protective heroes, and feisty heroines is the perfect backdrop for a sizzling romantic adventure! … a fast-paced love story filled with blazing action and scorching sensuality. – Ind’Tale Magazine
“Rebel with a cause” Gemma Archer flees Boston one step ahead of a creepy stalker. Now she’s in London, trying to build a new normal — and absolutely, positively not getting involved with any men. That is, until an irresistible stranger prowls into her life. Liam is a sweet, sexy modern-day knight who sparks her sizzling desires. The problem? He’s as loony as some of her relatives. Dragons? Lion shifters? Werewolves? The poor man really seems to believe the tales he spins.
Liam Bennett is fresh out of the military and doing his best to adjust to civilian life. But fitting in was never his forte as a shifter of mixed blood. He’s part lion — a member of London’s most noble family — and part rogue, with “undesirable” dragon blood. When the Guardians of London hire him to help maintain law and order, Liam jumps at the chance to prove himself. Soon, he discovers nothing is as it seems — not among his allies, enemies, or even his own family. The only thing he can be sure of is the danger Gemma is in.
A deadly foe has stalked Gemma for thousands of miles, and Liam has no choice but to spirit away his destined mate to his ancestral dragon home — the remote castle in Wales he’s been avoiding for years. But hiding out is not enough. Can Liam and Gemma survive cunning enemies and the deceptions of the past?

Fire Maidens: London brings us Lions and Liam! This was enjoyable to read for the drama of the Fire Maidens as well as the romance of Liam and Gemma.
How Gemma couldn’t fall for Liam or Liam for Gemma. They had chemistry with a push and pull against each other, Liam protecting Gemma and Gemma letting Liam while trying to figure out how to help him. Gemma was perfect when dealing with the everyone whether it be the council or Liam’s family. Liam took a leap of faith for his love for Gemma and learned more about himself then he ever expected. I loved Gemma’s dad being a little out there. But I loved even more Gareth “the butler” for Liam’s family. He was perfect, there is so much more there.
London followed Paris but was completely its own story. There were references to Tristen, Natalie & Paris, but you didn’t have to have read the story to enjoy London. Tour Europe and the Fire Maidens starting where you want!
Kindle Customer 5.0 out of 5 stars Love conquers all Reviewed in the United States on October 17, 2019 Verified Purchase The main attraction to this second book in the series is so amazing. Gemma is a spitfire who stands up for what she believes in. Whether is no to racism, animal cruelty , global warming. She have very strong beliefs and no one is better than the other even if you're a mighty dragon or an all mighty lionnes. Liam's is a lion shifter who's father was a dragron. The saying "she get it from her momma" comes to mind because she was a lioness and so is he. All his life he was told his father was selfish didn't care about no one but himself and dragged his mother off. Only to get them himself killed and his mate to die from sorrow. So of course he assumed dragron's weren't good except thatvwasnt true because of his good friend Tristan. He was a loyal trustworthy person and friend. When told by the Guardians of London he had to convince the lovely Gemma whom he had just met my coincidentally before the meeting. Or was it destined? To seduce her so they could control her and have their very own Fire Maiden. Well he was not keen to that so he took things into his own hands. Liam's told Gemma about shifters and at first she did not believe him. But after the one came after her she agreed for his help. She trusted him. He whisk her off to his family home in Richomond only to betrayed by his aunt. So he takes her to the last place he can think of. His ancestral home. His Castle in Wales. Gareth the caretaker explains to Liam the lies his lion relatives spoke about his father and what really happen. Then he realized all the dreams he had and memories he remembered were true. He need to protect his mate after all she is the Fair Maiden. Once they defeat one foe on to the next and boy is his mate fire. She enthralled him like she spelled him with magic. She told them Guardins what and what she wasn't gonna do and they better take head to her warning if they wanted her to be their Fair Maiden of London and go somewhere else. She was a boss. Take that great aunt Electra! Can't wait for the next book. Right? Anna Lowe in her own right is like Gemma. She puts a spell on you to keeping turning each page because you burn with the desire to know what's going to happen next. I'm telling you you're going to love this book. I know I'm digging this series so far.

RetiredHsMom 5.0 out of 5 stars Gemma & Liam Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2020 Verified Purchase :Review was originally posted on Audible: Overall: 5 Stars Performance: 5 Stars Story: 5 Stars This is another well-crafted story by Ms. Lowe. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Gemma and Liam. He was sweet, charming, and funny. Gemma was smart and sweet. Loved the side characters of Gareth, Sergio, and Gemma's slightly addled father. I even found Electra amusing. She was the perfect semi-villian. The narration was well done. Ms. Osborne certainly has grown as a narrator since I first heard her. I'm looking forward to book 3. I bet it's going to be just as lovely! Disclosure: I received a free copy of the audiobook. I also purchased the Kindle version.
