Successful landscape designer Tania Solares prides herself on living by her own terms, relying on no man to provide for her. But her carefully controlled life takes a turn for the extraordinary when her inquiry into the disappearance of her best friend thrusts her between two warring factions of dragon shifters. Suddenly Tania’s survival depends on Mac, a newly initiated dragon warrior who will break every rule to keep her safe.
Now that Tania knows the truth about Dragonkind, returning to her old life is too grave a risk. Ivar, leader of the Razorbacks, plots to decimate the human race, and Tania is just the tool he needs. Despite the danger, Mac cannot deny her a choice: Trade the independence she’s fought so hard to achieve for safety in a magical world, or turn her back on the man she’s grown to love in order to reclaim a freedom that might not last? It is an impossible choice. And yet a sacrifice must be made
Dotti Elrick 4.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Busy, But I Loved It. Reviewed in the United States on November 13, 2013 Verified Purchase Fury of Seduction is the third book in the Dragonfury series. I have fallen in love with these dragons and the world they live in. The Nightfury, a pack of dragonkind, very alpha males. Protectors of humankind. They need human females to feed them. And carry their sons. Females are tuned into the Meridian. A pure power source that the dragonkind need to heal and stay healthy. Each female connects to the Meridian in their own way. Some are very low power, but the most sought after ones, are the high power females. There are a lot of things going on in this book. Almost too much to keep track of. Mac, a former SPD detective, and newly transitioned water dragon, and the woman he can't get off of his mind, Tania. Tania is Myst's (From Fury of Fire) best friend. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time, put her right in the forefront of Mac's radar. Without either of them knowing it. Tania was the first female Mac fed from during his transition. Her mind was scrubbed so she wouldn't remember the event. And Mac's transition into dragonkind was so traumatic, he doesn't remember what happened between the two of them. All they know is they are drawn to each other. And when her life is put in danger by the Razorback pack, rogues who hate all things human. That puts Mac on the fast track to finding her and keeping her safe. At any cost. Ivar, the leader of the Razorbacks. He's still mourning the loss of his second in command at the hand of the Nightfuries. Afraid to tell the XO's sire for fear of loosing his funding. Funding for a special breeding program. Ivar has been collecting high energy females to use as breeders for his experiments. He wants to breed the first females of their kind. Doing away with the need to feed from human females. But his funding comes from the highest and most powerful source. Rodin, the head of the Archguard high council. Rodin has been secretly funding Ivar's lab and his experiments for years. Something that would set the dragonkind world on its ear if it was known. .Rodin is a cruel man. Strung out on his powerful position, and very full of himself. Not afraid to partake in all sorts of illegal activities as entertainment for his closest allies. But unbeknownst to Rodin, There is soon to be a fly in his ointment. A junior member of the council, Nian wants his job. Nian is the newest member of the dragonkind high council. He is very aware of the kind of man Rodin is. And he wants to be the one to relieve him of his title. But to do that he needs friends. And the ones he's chosen are not going to be easy to win over. The Nightfury pack. Nian's sire is responsible for the death of the Nightfury leader, Bastian's sires death. But now he's hoping to make him a useful ally, by becoming the spy Bastian and his men need to take down Ivar. We also meet for the first time the last two Nighfury males. Gage and Haider. The two "Metallics". liquid metal breathers. They have been dispatched to Prague as representatives of the Nightfury pack for the Archguard festival. And then there is the introduction of yet another dragon. Mac has been told being a water dragon, he is one of a kind. Until Ivar recruits the only other known water dragon to come to the states and work on his side, to get rid of Mac. Water is somewhere most dragons do not want to be. So having one that can use water to hide in or as a weapon, is not something Ivar wants. Tania is also worried about her younger sister, J.J. J.J. is serving fifteen years in prison for manslaughter. She killed her abusive boyfriend. And the boyfriend just happened to be the brother of a cop. So she was convicted and sent away. But after five years, she is now up for parole. If only she can keep her nose clean and stay out of trouble. Like I said, lots going on in this book. So much that the romance between Mac and Tania is kind of put off to the side. And rushed a bit more than it was in the other stories. But over all I still love this series. A very unique take on the dragon universe. I love that each dragon is different. Not only in the way they look but in their abilities. Some are fire breathers, some breath acid, gas, a napalm like substance, Rikar is the last known frost dragon, and Bastian is more of a dragon taser. Very cool.
Lynn Worton 5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Paranormal Erotic Romance! Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 21, 2013 Verified Purchase This is the third book in the Dragonfury Series. I loved it! Mac McCord is the newest member of the Dragonfury pack. An ex-cop, his transformation began in Fury of Ice, after tangling with the magical blast of a Razorback. I liked this tough character. He is almost like an unsteady pup (albeit a dangerous one!) as he adjusts to his new life. He is a rare water dragon, but being new, his magic is raw and untrained, which chafes at this warrior's pride. Tania Solares is a landscape designer, and best friend to Myst Munroe. I liked her "take no prisoners" attitude with trying to find out about the disappearance of her friend, but her feisty nature puts her on the Razorbacks' radar. I don't know what magic these sexy dragons have over me, but these books seem to be getting better and better! The story is completely page turning! I must admit that I had to get this in audio too, because I just HAD to know how things were unfolding, especially when I had to do chores and couldn't read my Kindle whilst doing them! Mind you, it could be the narrators voice that got me too! Benjamin L. Darcie's dulcet tones brought the characters to life! It was nice to meet all the characters again, and to be introduced to new ones like Tania's sister, JJ. Although, there is one character that I could have done without - Ivar. The leader of the Razorback's is a cruel psycho, with a mad scientist vibe that made shivers run up my back! We are also introduced to Nian, a dragon in the Archguard's High Council. He is new to his position, but disgusted with the current leader of the Council, and is looking to replace him. His story could be rather intriguing! This story is full of action, danger and romance that has captured my imagination, and made me wish that these dragon warriors were really alive! The battle scenes were described extremely vividly and I could "see" them with ease! I cannot wait to read Fury of Desire and to get to know Wick and JJ better! Coreene Callahan has written another fantastic paranormal romance. She is fast becoming one of my favourite authors to read. Her books are fast paced and flowed beautifully! Due to the use of bad language and the explicit sexual scenes, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances or books with sexy dragon shifters! - Lynn Worton
Shauni 5.0 out of 5 stars Fury of Seduction, A Review for The Blog Tea and Book Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2012 Verified Purchase Finally!! I have been able to sit down and enjoy this book. Let me tell you it has been an extremely difficult week. I had this book on my kindle and needed to finish other things.. as this is not in my reading nature, seeing this book sitting there and teasing me was not fun.. but oh was it worth it! Coreene Callahan strikes hard and fast in the third installment of her DragonFury Series.. The world is opening up and there is just so much going on, total reader stimulation. This was one of those books where the story arc carries the book rather than the lead couple. While I tend to get irked about this in this case Ms Callahan did a brilliant job. Maybe because she did it earlier in the series or maybe because she used characters that we had not completely bonded with yet.. who knows? Yes Mac and Tania's story was intermixed with some serious plot twists and turns, Coreene still managed to make them steam... Mac, tall, built and serious attitude! As a cop, as a man he was determined to serve, years as a Navy Seal led him to years on the Seattle Police Force but as good as he was at serving justice he didn't quite get the whole people and relationships thing. Until Angela, he was never able to stay with a partner. He was too tough, too rough, too everything.. As for women, he loves em, all of them. Where some have a women in every port.. Our Mac, well he had a flavor of the moment.. When Angela went missing, his sister of the heart, his partner and yes the only woman he took seriously, he was almost destroyed. But an instant in time, a moment shared space with a Dragon and his Dragon DNA was unleashed and Mac starts to find out just a bit more about himself than he was even remotely aware of. This we discover in Fury of Fire and Fury of Ice, the first two books of the Dragonfury series.. What we discover about Mac in Fury of Seduction.. well let's just say Mac Smolders.. Total and complete swoon room material. Tania Solares is a complicated woman. Years of male abandonment and misuse, she doesn't trust men. She is smart, sexy, loyal and determined.. what a package.. Oh yeah and she is a High Energy (H-E) Female. So that puts her in line for some serious trouble. Since the disappearance of Myst, her best friend, she has been actively searching. Determined to find her, refusing to believe she is dead. Tania had relied on the SPD.. only problem is, the Detectives on the case were Mac and Angela and they too have disappeared.. Leaving Tania desperate.. Add to this the fact that her sister (the sister Tania all but raised) is in prison for manslaughter, Tania is at wits end. When Mac and Tania meet, let's just say fireworks ensued! These two are combustible (pretty nifty for a Water Dragon). Ms Callahan does a wonderful job at sharing bits and pieces of their relationship with us. Sure she could have made this the focal part of the book, but in a way letting it slip to a secondary aspect made it steamier. Tania is a driven woman who controls everything and Mac well let's just say he demands control sexually. *grins* Watching these two commitment phobes slide into love was fabulous. Remember when I mentioned the Archguard in my review of Fury of Ice? Remember when I said they were up to something sneaky? That there was way more to them than we thought.. Let's just say.. I was right and leave it at that! Anything else would be huge spoilers. We do spend a moment with those who are at the "Archguard Games". We get to meet Gage and Haider, the missing Dragonfury pack members and they most definitely belong. There is a scene I am already envisioning when Gage returns and meets Tania.. *grins* that should be fun. One of the best things about Ms Callahan's writing is the fact that even though Ivar is evil and I believe totally nonredeemable.. we feel for him. We see him grieve and there were times when I just wanted to comfort him. I don't like Ivar, we aren't supposed to be we see a man/dragon that wants what he thinks is best for his people. This is a true talent! We also learn a bit and I mean a teeny tiny bit about waterdragons.. I have some questions, some things I want to discuss about Mac and his lineage but for now I will refrain as they include spoilers but I am intrigued. This book left me with so many questions.. So many threads dangling, teasing me, leaving me almost salivating for the next book, Fury of Desire, which I believe comes out in the Spring and will be Wick's book. Now that is gonna be interesting. When a book grabs me as much as this one did, I tend to loose my ability to review.. I get lost in the superlatives and sometimes forget why I am reviewing. I am sorry if this happened but this book was fabulous.. absolutely and totally fabulous! A must read.. but don't read it as book one.. it is definitely a transition type of book.. connecting us with old favorites and yet introducing some exciting new characters.. Watching all of Ms Callahan's plot lines begin to intersect is a total and complete delight
