***Double Review*** Charred Heart (Heart of Fire #1) by Lizzy Ford
***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.***
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.
Amy’s Review ~
What can be said about this book. Yet another great book by Lizzy Ford. This was my first dragon shifter book and for me it was great. There is a cliffhanger but nothing like the normal ones you find at the end of books. This book was written well. Had some hot steamy scenes in it. Definitely for 18+.
The characters were great. I loved all but Mr. Nothing, Caleb, and Dillon. I actually didn’t mind Dillon till late in the book when my feelings changed. Dillon is the son of Caleb and Caleb runs a facility that captures shifters. I hated the place as soon as I started reading about it.
Chase -dragon shifter- is awesome. I loved his character and how he had a safe place for the other shifters. Loved his cabin too.
Skyler was pretty awesome too. I love the indecision’s she has and the back and forth with what to do and believe. I think the two made an awesome couple.
I loved Gunner. Mason Rocked. Mr. Nothing pissed me off at the end. Lots of different emotions played out while reading this book. Everything played out perfectly. The book was written well. No dull moments. Definitely some steamy sex scenes. All in all a great book. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. Definitely recommend this book.

Holy hotness batman, this is Lizzy’s steamiest read yet. Lizzy amazes me with every book that she releases especially when she steps into a new genre/territory. I have never read a dragon shifter book before and Lizzy has made it to the point that I will be looking for them. Chace is smoking hot and Skylar is a witty sexy woman. These two have chemistry that will light up your reading device.
Chace is a 1000 year old dragon shifter who wants nothing more than to be human again. He goes so far as to make a deal with a man named Mr. Nothing to give up his magic to become a human. Sky is a young woman who believes that shifter are nothing but murders and is what we call a dragon slayer. Her mission is to take in these shifters and bring them back to a compound where they are suppose to be rehabilitated. When Chace and Sky met for the first time they are both overwhelmed by the strong attraction they have to one another. At this point is when the book gets super steamy.
There are so many twist and turns through out this story you will find yourself wondering what is going to happen next. Sky has been remembering things that shouldn’t be and Chace is starting to put two and two together and find that what Sky has been told is not the truth. I love how Lizzy intertwined these two characters to the point that Chace truly does need Sky. Unfortunately they are both fighting for what they believe in and in the end one of them is going to make a decision for themselves that could end up destroying everything.
Chace and Sky have a hilarious bantering relationship, that will have you giggling. There are moments where Chace will melt your heart and again the sex scenes are smoking hot. There are many secondary characters that you will met and I for one cannot wait to see what develops with them. Be prepared for a crazy cliffhanger but at the same time some of the missing pieces will start to fit. If you love paranormal reads that are little bit spicy this is definitely the read for you.
