Open Flame (Dragon’s Fate Book 2) by 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.

Of all the paranormal creatures you could write about, why did you choose dragons?I think they are pretty special. Many cultures have dragons as mythical creatures and in each culture dragons hold different meanings. I decided to use a blend of different cultures dragons for my Zir.How would you describe the leading lady in Open Flame?Fina is feisty and naive, but she has a big heart.Your story comes with an explicit sex warning. I'm curious, what kind of lover is Madoc?He is an alpha and very passionate.I'm really digging the cover for Open Flame. Who designed it and how much input did you have in the process?Kanaxa . She is amazing. She also did the cover for Waterfall. I had quite a bit of input on the cover for this one. The first draft was dark and had a cool feel to it and I asked for it to be warmer as it is the fire dragon?s story.What projects will you be working on next?I am currently working on Ilmir's story. He is the air Zir and is the one who bites. I am having fun with him. Grin.You write a lot of sexy stories. Do you read a lot of sexy stories too? We would love some recommendations!Thank you. I do enjoy writing steamy.I also enjoy reading it. I tend to gravitate towards traditional historical erotica. Some of my favorites are: The Pearl and Romance of lust. You can find them here:
