Heart of Fire series by Lizzy Ford

Charred Heart by Lizzy Ford

Heart of Fire # 1


Charred Heart is the first book in the Heart of Fire series by Lizzy Ford.

I read the premise of this book and can’t pass on a paranormal romance. 

This is the first dragon shifter book that I have read.  The main character Chance is a eons old dragon who has pretty much given up on life.  He is sexy as hell, but has nothing left to look forward to in life.

Skylar is a dragon slayer who has a one night stand with Chance and it changes her life forever.

To me this book lacked a sense of the world that these creatures live in.  Do humans know about shifters?  Who are these so-called slayers?  Why do shifters have magic and how can they move houses?  I really can’t get into a book, especially paranormal, without good word building.

Also, the secondary characters just seemed to be stuck in the pages.  These characters didn’t seem to fit into the story.

I really wanted to like this book, but felt some things were lacking.


For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.

At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.

The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.

Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
