AN ISLAND MADE PRISON FOR THE UNFORGIVEN…
Stripped of magic, Morthanion understands that savagery is necessary to survive. When Aria’s true nature is revealed, the other inmates will stop at nothing to have her – and the demon would fight the entire world to keep her safe.
Make Me Burn is the first book from this author that I have read, but this is a book that I have had on my wishlist for what seems like years. I have seen more of this author lately especially with her spider people series that has come out this past year. But I finally realized I needed to pick this one up and I am so happy that I finally did. I truly had a blast with this one here, While it wasn’t a perfect read, it was a solid one that I thoroughly enjoyed and had such fun elements that I love seeing in epic fantasy. The gist of the story is that our hero, is a demon and has been banished to an island which is where he discovers a woman, with a beautiful voice and an affinity for the water. They form a connection. But they are surrounded by enemies, and they have to learn to trust each other and their bond to reach their HEA.
I had such a fun time with this one here, and I really liked seeing a demon and a sired/mermaid match make it work. But it does take time, they are so different from each other and I just love seeing the way that they learn to trust in each other and while it seems at times they are always back and forth with each other, I really loved seeing the small moments that forge a bond between them. I do wish the hero had been a bit less of an alpha mellow though, but I truly enjoyed the manner in which he treated our heroine. I also think she could have been more accepting of him. He seemed to be the one changing and adapting for her, but it didn’t go the other way around and I wish she had been a bit less judgy. I did love the plot as a whole, it definitely keeps you on your toes and I am so intrigued by the character that will end up being the hero for book two, he was such a fascinating character. Overall I found this one to be a delightful mix of a high fantasy setting, a unique match up and an enticing romance.

Overall Rating of the Book
Simmering—soft warm touches and light intimacy
Warm- a medium level of sexual tension, a balance of sexual and emotional intimacy, lighter on the details in the sexual moments.
Steamin’ up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.
Blazing fire to the building-The prime focus is the sex scenes, scorching hot, and could burn one. Less focus on the emotional intimacy to the relationship.
