For millennia, the shape-shifting dragon warriors known as the Pyr have commanded the four elements and guarded the earth’streasures. But now the final reckoning between the Pyr and the dreaded slayers is about to begin…
The mysterious Dragon’s Blood Elixir gives immortality to Magnus, the Pyr’s greatest enemy, and his minions—so it must be destroyed. Outcast from the Pyr because of his own dangerous impulses, Delaney will do anything to vanquish Magnus—and vows to complete a mission which will either redeem him or end his suffering.
But hisplans don’t take into accounthis sudden firestorm—or the hot-tempered GingerSinclair. The firestorm reforms Delaney closer to hisold self. And when Ginger learns about Delaney’s scheme, she cannot resist a strong man with a noble agenda.
Delaney, as we have seen in previous books, is a Pyr, only has been partly corrupted by ‘Magnus’, the head of the slayers, who forced him to drink a certain elixir, that has caused him to wage a war within himself. A war that he is still fighting himself, and after almost harming his brothers family, he is determined to find a way to win this inner battle. On his way to accomplish his mission, he comes across his firestorm, who makes him feel more like himself than ever before. He also knows he doesn’t have a lot of time, and that his mission could very well mean his death. However he underestimates Ginger, who is a fighter and is willing to do whatever it takes to show him the true power of the “Firestorm” and by working together they can defeat Magnus.
Delaney, once a powerful Pyr, was corrupted by his enemy, and he doesn’t know if he will be able to win the battle that is waging within him, so he decides to destroy Magnus at all costs, even at the cost of his life. But when he comes across his Firestorm, he is overwhelmed, and at first only thinks of sating the desire, but when Ginger, follows him, he knows that there must be another way to defeat his enemy with the combined forces of the Pyr, and with the assistance of his mate…
Ginger, owns a farm but one night out on the town with friends, she meets a man, that takes her breath away. After spending a delicious night in his arms, she knows he is one of a kind, and when she wakes up alone, she goes after him. Ginger refuses to lose the one man that she knows is a keeper. But she is in over her head when she realizes who Delaney truly is, a Dragon, who she is madly in love with…
Winter Kiss was such a fun and exciting story. I just fell in love with Ginger from the very beginning, she had spunk and attitude and I loved it!! Delaney, at times I didn’t like especially in the beginning, where he basically finds his firestorm and just plans on sating it and leaving her pregnant and alone. That part I didn’t like but as the story plays out, you start to like him more and more. From previous books we see the struggle that Delaney has gone through, so I truly loved reading his story, and I thought Ginger was just perfect for him. Winter Kiss is a truly fantastic story that will steal your heart, a tale of love and adventure, and that anything worthwhile is worth fighting for.
