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 Kegan faints.

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.
