Description

A jaded warrior who doesn't want to get involved and an irresistible she-dragon on the run.

For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.

Novice dragon, Laura Sampao always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. But when she inherits a family heirloom, her life changes forever. Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. And that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.

Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe. Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.

Lots of "Edge of Your Seat" Action & Romance

This is another great addition to the Billionaires and Bodyguards series. Laura has the ruby and is wearing it around her neck. She knows nothing about a Fire Maiden. Marco lived between his two homes – one in Lisbon and the other in Madiera. Marco was in Lisbon when he sensed Laura’s fear and went out to investigate. He rescued her while she is being chased by baddies. She is not used to shifting into her dragon form so she is very clumsy. It is so funny when they arrive at Marco’s home in their escape from the baddies and she has a hard time landing. I could just picture the landing. LOL.

Olivia, a biotch, broke Marco’s heart about 10 years ago when she left him. He doesn’t want to open his heart again even though he feels something for Laura. She stays at Marco’s house. When he had to go out, Laura stupidly left Marco’s house to meet with Tito, who turns out to be a real bad @ss. Laura calls for help and Fin arrives before she meets with him to distracts him and his goons so Laura can hide until Marco arrives. There was a lot of “edge of your seat” action when Marco and Laura tried to escape them. Shortly after they arrive at Marco’s house, the baddies are there wanting Laura. Laura and Marco shift and take a marathon flight hundreds of miles away to the island of Madeira where Marco has another home and staff. A lot happens when they are on Madeira and a lot of action takes place.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable. I love the fact that during all of the action scenes, Marco, is slowly falling in love with Laura. Marco was hurt by Olivia, who was his fiancée, when she left him and she turns out to be a real bad@ss too. I love how Laura gained confidence and took care of Olivia.

I love Fin’s role in this book. He is awesome and I am rooting for him to find his mate.

Great 4th Book in Series

I was not disappointed. Marcus and Laura are wonderful together. When Marcus realizes that his behavior is causing more harm than good, he actually begins to think like the soldier he truly is. Even with his brusque behavior in the beginning, it is understandable as we go through Marcus's thinking process. I liked that this story focused more on Marcus than the other stories focused more on the females. This one was more equally based, and helped to make the story more relatable and enjoyable. Once Marcus accepts that Laura is his mate, his personality suddenly takes a major shift. It's like the wary soldier turns a switch off and becomes someone else or maybe the man he was meant to be.

Thrilling

I just love the combination of Anna Low and Kelsey Osborne. Anna Lowe writes a wonderful story and Kelsey brings it to life. The aerial dog fights are superbly done. There are some pretty steamy scenes but they are tastefully done. You can't go wrong with this book.

Portugal

We're now into the fourth book of the Billionaires and Bodyguards series involving Fire Maidens. We are focused on Marcos, who is slightly jaded from his past. And Laura who just wants answers. It seems as though Marcos and Laura's destinies are meant to intertwine. Especially when Marcos saves Laura from the vampires and gives her refuge. Marcos decides to teach Laura about her newfound abilities, which develops into something more.

As always, I enjoy seeing glimpse of past and future mates in each story. Looking forward to what Ireland brings! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Fire Maidens Portugal provided by the author.

Amazing story

Laura knew long ago her family descended from Dragon shifters but with all the family members mating with humans it hadn't manifested itself in generations and it wouldn't again. Oops wrong. Now laura had a crash course in vampires because they are after her. she is in trouble and came to Portugal hoping to find someone to teach her about being a Dragon. Her only hope is a Jaded warrior but he is also a pain in the butt.
Marco is heir to an anclient Dragon dynasty and a dragon shifter. He isn't to happy about having her around because he has been burned by a woman before so he doesn't trust. His dragon sure does. Lol. His dragon will not let him do anything but keep her safe. Plus there is danger all around. It's a good thing finn is there to help!
Ok you now know the two of them but not the story! The story is WOW. I loved the characters, the action, drama, mystery, and everything else the author put into this! An amazing adventure. I couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. I can't wait for the next book to come out I am so hooked.

Laura and Marco

Anyone who reads my reviews will know how much I love Anna Lowe's books but I especially love them once the wonderful Kelsey Osborne has added her magic touch to the audio. This book about Laura and Marco was one I particularly loved. Laura Sampao always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but no one had shifted in so long that they all assumed that power was lost. That is until she inherited a ruby necklace from her great aunt and found herself shifting into a dragon! Her life will never be the same, she decides to go to Lisbon and seek the help of the Guardians there as her family originally came from Portugal.

Marco da Silva, who we met previously when he helped Sergio and Lena in Rome, is the heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, but he’s determined not to take his father's seat as one of the Guardians believing that power and respect should be earned not inherited.

Whilst Laura is waiting for the Guardians to answer her plea for help she finds herself being pursued by a vampire and a dragon through the streets of Lisbon. Her one chance to escape is to take flight, but she is so new to flying will she be able to do it? Just when she thinks everything will be lost and she will be caught by the dragon pursuing her another dragon arrives on the scene and chases her pursuer away. He's, gruff and distant but he offers her refuge, he takes her home to his vila and begrudgingly offers her assistance.

Marco may want to keep himself to himself and stay away from women but when his dragon wakes him late one night and tells him that Laura is in danger, he has no choice but to help her. He defeats the dragon pursuing her and as she has nowhere safe to go he takes her home.

After another attempt to capture Laura by the vampire, the only way for him to keep her safe is to take her to Madera, but the only way they can get there is by flying and not in a plane! He has only done that marathon flight once will a novice like Laura be able to make it?

Once on Maderia the danger level increases, Marco begins to teach Laura all she will need to know, will they be able to get help from Madera's Guardians? But the danger has only increased and powerful enemies are on the move, enemies who will stop at nothing to seize Laura and use her power as a stepping stone to obtaining control of the entire continent.

But by this time Laura and Marco have realised that they are mates and are determined to defeat their enemies and be together. Their love story is action-packed and yet at times sweet, but this is a love story between dragons so there is lots of heat, from a dragon kiss to a dragon bond. I loved it, thank you, Anna and Kelsy you make such a wonderful team.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Can destiny help a bitter warrior?

I love reading Anna Lowe's stories, and listening is even better. She has a good habit of making the paranormal come to life.

Marco is a dragon shifter. He just completed a tour with the Foreign Legion of France and has come home to settle into a nice quiet life. He had been burned by women before he joined and everything he has seem since has confirmed that most women just want what would make them comfortable. Until he rescues Laura and winds up bringing her home. his dragon is pushing him that she is his mate, but he doesn't believe in mates any longer.

Laura's family has known they were descended from dragon shifters but no one has been able to shift for generations. Until she suddenly started to shift, much later in life than most start. She has been trying to find help for a while now, only coming across some taciturn shifters in the US. She makes the decisions to return to her family's roots and see if she can find help there.

Once in Portugal she winds up being targeted by vampires, who have gotten another dragon to chase her down. She is on the run until she sees a third dragon coming right for her. She manages to dodge him and finds out he was chasing the original dragon trying to catch her, and not herself. Giving Marco, who is the one that came to her aid, her guarded trust she starts to learns more of shifters, specifically dragons.

Will these two be able to come together, or will the past interfere? Have a listen to the book and find out. I did receive a copy of this book for free, and I fell in love with not just this story but any of the Fire Maidens Anna has brought to life. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

I am really loving this series

Another great love story in the Fire Maidens series. Laura has only just discovered that the dragon genes that have been long dormant in her family have decided to make an appearance in her. Struggling to learn what she needs to know about shifting, flying, and hardest of all, landing, she travels to her ancestral home country of Portugal in search of answers. What she will find is a whole lot more than she bargained for.

Marco has returned to Portugal determined to stay out of the politics that rule the shifter world. His spot on the Guardian council can just sit empty. Those old families are just too stuck in their ways to listen to anything he tries to tell them. His time in the French Foreign Legion has taught him a lot about who to trust and about the wars the powerful drag others into. When his dragon alerts him to trouble near his home in Lisbon he is reluctant to investigate, but his dragon is insistent. Rescuing the female dragon from one of his cousins is not hard to do but his interest in her is another matter. He has been taken in once before by the damsel in distress act and has no desire to fall for it again. He discovers that Laura may be a damsel but she doesn't need saving, well maybe a little saving. What she really needs is training and he is the man for that job. Now if his dragon would just stop throwing the word "mate" around...

Join Marco and Laura as they go from Lisbon to Madeira and from rescuer and rescuee to lovers. Laura may nail that landing yet.
