Kegan Blaise is woken from a sound sleep
by a friend that wants her to use her seer powers on an
ancient sarcophagus. When Kegan lays her bare hand on the
coffin, images of a powerful warrior run through her mind that
are so vivid, she passes out. When she regains consciousness,
she is dismayed and almost horrified to see the lid of the
casket opening and the warrior of her vision slowly sit up and
rise out of his box. He then turns his attention to her and
Da’rak needs to see the face of the
person that called him from his sleep. The fact that she is
beautiful and he is attracted to her pleases him
tremendously. When Da’rak realizes that Kegan is his shanzah,
or life companion, he knows that there is no way he is going
to leave her on Earth and return to his home planet alone.
Dethroned and ready to fight for his kingdom, Da’rak does the
only thing he can think of to keep Kegan with him. He
spiritually binds her and brands her as his own¾much
to her dismay.
Tournament of Fire is a story about two strong
and stubborn people who find each other almost by mistake.
Da’rak had been asleep and waiting for the right time to fight
for his throne on his home planet, and Kegan was just barely
able to survive with her gift to see prior emotions in
everything she touches and not able to stop it. I found
myself chuckling more than once at the antics of their ‘pet’
gargoyle and laughing out loud each time Kegan got mad at
Da’rak and he did his best to soothe her ruffled feathers.
I thought Tournament of Fire
an extraordinarily funny and cute read, not to mention the
naughty and intensely arousing sexual element. Having never
read Toni Meilleur before, I didn’t know what to expect. I am
glad that I decided to read Tournament of Fire
because it kept me entertained with every page. I look forward
to reading more from this author.
