Title: Open Flame (Dragon’s Fate #2)
Author: Lacy Danes
Genre: Paranormal romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Date of Publication: September 24th 2013
Between hate and lust lies heaven, hell… and smoldering love.
Like his brothers, Madoc is a dragon born by blood magic. Unlike them, he has only once bitten a human in a near-hopeless quest to find his eternal mate. Watching that woman die nearly destroyed him.
Now he works to invent a watch that will rewind time. When he attends the Spectacle of Time in Paris, though, he finds a woman who shakes the foundation of his world and crumbles his ferocious control.
Ever since the black-haired man with the red crescent on his cheek ruined her family, Fina has hated him. When she runs into him in Paris, she is determined to show him just how much. Instead, overwhelmed by the desire to both kill him and bed him, her body betrays her and she melts in his arms.
Sparks fly, and—when his teeth sink into her skin—she ignites. But she can’t run far and fast enough to avoid the burning truth. She is now part of Madoc’s dangerous world body, soul, and fire.
Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, time-shifting, distance-hopping, a super-hot dragon, and a woman who can take the heat.
About the Author:
Lacy Danes made a New Year's resolution to write a hot, historical romance. A year and a half later, she achieved her goal. She lives in Portland OR, where besides writing she enjoys horseback riding, gardening and savoring a great martini while watching the world go by.
1. What inspired you to write this book?
I write both historical and paranormal. I love to mix the two. I have a fascination with dragons and adore a good love story. Madoc is the Fire Zir and he can stop time. With each story in the Dragon Fate series the Zir get closer to understanding how they came to be. Even though that is true, each story can be read completely alone.
2. What characters do you connect with most?
There are aspects of each of my characters I connect with, but if I have to choose one from this story I would say I connect most with Madoc. I say this because he is a bit of a loner, concentrates on his work, but he also does not like to be made fun of or manipulated.
3. What's your favorite book-turned movie?
I love the book and movie for Marry Reilly.
4. If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
Grandmum would be a fantastic best friend. She has many adventures and has the wisdom to know what matters.
5. Can you tell us about any other books you're writing?
I am currently working on the third book in the Dragon’s Fate series. This is the Air Zir’s story, Ilmir.
6. What do you do in your spare time?
I don’t really have spare time. Thee kids, a day job, and writing take most of my time. But, when I want to do something fun I do my personal maintenance, nails, wax, I also love to go to concerts. My husband and I just saw X and Blondie together as well as The Lumineers.
7. Who's your inspiration?
My mom. She is a wonderful woman. She reads everything I write before I send it in. She was a loving mother and follows her own passion antiques.
8. If you were stranded on a desert island which character do you want by your side?
Definitely Jordan. He is a water Zir (Book One) and could get us off the Island!!!
9. Team Edward or Jacob?
I would have to say Jacob though there are things I like about both of them. I think that is what makes the story a great one.
10. Team Peeta or Gale?
11. What are you reading now?
World War Z. Zombies. I seem to have a thing for contagious illness, end of the world as we know it apocalypse stories and films. I love the movies Contagion, Outbreak, Day After Tomorrow. Do you have any that you would suggest?
