Review: Fire In His Eyes - Stella & Audra Price
Alcyone Sterling, succubus and owner of Pinkys XXX has a secret admirer who is leaving her exotic, rare flowers and jewelry beyond beautiful. She doesn't know who it is, and gets even more curious after a clandestine liaison in her bedroom involving a few silk ties and a blindfold.
Char, Fire Elemental and strongest of the last dragons left in the Eververse, is obsessed and in love with the young succubus, and recognises her as his mate, regardless of her demon status. He has to have her, and will do anything to attain her.
A threat from Char's past, and Alcyone's present, gives them little options in their future, but Char is not about to lose the one woman he has been waiting eons to find. The choice between living a hollow hidden existence and finding absolution in a lovers arms is no choice at all.
Char's choices not only affect himself and his newly found mate, but those he is sworn to protect.

Char is one of only a few remaining dragons and has been in hiding with his friends for hundreds of years. The King of the Fire Demons ordered the execution of all dragons and ever since the dragons and demons have been enemies. The last dragons have been in hiding for so long that the demons believe they are all dead and the dragons have no intention of letting them know otherwise. That is until Char finds Alcyone and realises she is is mate.
Alcyone is not a born demon - she traded her human life to become a succubus in order to be beautiful. As more and more of her friends find their soul mates Al finds herself becoming lonely and wishing for her own love. When a secret admirer starts leaving her gifts she is desperate to know who he is and when they finally meet at a masquerade ball the attraction and passion between them is instant. But Char must keep his existence secret from the other demons and Alcyone is a favorite of the succubus Queen so it isn't going to be easy for them to be together.
I really enjoyed reading Char and Alcyone's story they make a sweet couple and their story is both romantic and passionate. Char has been alone for a long time and had almost given up on life before he first saw Al and knowing she was his mate changed everything for him. He is determined to be with her but worried about putting his friends at risk by exposing himself to the demons. Although the relationship between Char and Al develops quite quickly it was still believable. They have some very sexy encounters and I loved it when Char marks Al with his mating mark.
I also liked getting to meet the other dragons - Kael in particular was a fantastic character who I can't wait to see more of (luckily for me his book is the next one in the series). Watch out for the scenes with him and his new pets - they really made me laugh out loud. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more about these sexy dragons and their mates!
