Ashlynn Blake, minor goddess of the hunt—lethal, beautiful, and able to connect with animals on a psychic level—is the perfect person to place judgment upon an accused dragon. But first she has to prove to the gods that Ty Sullivan is innocent of his crimes. If she fails, she’s doomed to lose her heart along with him forever.
Ty’s been beaten, scarred, and betrayed by females. He doesn’t trust them, can’t stand being around them for longer than he or his dragon needs to be. Yet, when he meets Ashlynn, his dragon is ready to mate, but the man believes she’s no different than the others.
The Fates have thrown them together, forcing secrets to be told and igniting a passion so fierce it may destroy both of them.

Excerpt:
A twig snapped and he whirled to face the intruder. As soon as the redheaded goddess came into to full view, he froze and his heart pounded. Her hair hung in silky waves around her shoulders and her green eyes sparkled like emeralds. He let his gaze travel down her body. A tight black V-neck sweater and black jeans clung to her modest curves and his palms itched to touch her, to see if she was real.
“Are you going to stand there and stare at me all day?” Ashlynn stepped toward him, her expression a mysterious blend of coyness and invitation.
The dragon snapped his teeth and paced beneath his skin. A hot, dizzying rush of desire filled him. Ashlynn’s strawberry scent called to the beast, stirring a fiery need only she could calm. Every day and night she’d been gone, the dragon grew more impatient. Seeing her, being close enough they could touch in two long strides didn’t ease some of the darkness he succumbed to over the past weeks. No, being close to her raised a need within him that drove his dragon insane with lust.
The man had no intentions on claiming the female. Not yet, anyway. How did he know she could be trusted?
With a low growl to warn the dragon to back the fuck off, Ty watched her pass him to stare at the ruins. “Where have you been?” he gritted out.
She took a deep breath before answering. “At my mother’s. Healing.”
“Sounds like she lives nearby.”
She turned to look at him, brows raised. “What if she did?”
He growled and took one step forward, wrapped an arm around her waist to jerk her against him. Her body meshed into his, electrifying each nerve ending, and he tried to ignore how perfectly she fit against him. “Don’t play with me, female.”
A sensual smile lifted her full, kissable lips. “Oh, believe me, I haven’t begun to play. Yet.”


I HEART BOOKS REVIEW

Ashes of War (Sons of War #2) by Lia Davis
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5 

Raising from the Ashes isn't just for Phoenix's anymore ... Ash raises her dragon up from his own personal hell!

Outstanding second book in the Sons of War series! We first met the many sons of Ares (the Greek God of War) in War's Passion - the first book in the Sons of War series. This second book focuses in on Ty, the tortured dragon who keeps to himself and always wears sunglasses. He doesn't trust women and is very short with any woman he comes up against. Until he meets Ash. He is drawn to the goddess like no other. While he wants to distrust her he can't help the pull she seems to have over him and especially his dragon. It is intriguing to read the changes in Ty from the first book - he makes you laugh, cry, squeal, and roll your eyes at his behavior at times. And now a bit about the story...

Ash has come back to Earth to clear her mate's name and now she only has 7 days. How will she ever manage? She is already half in love with the giant dragon who seems to have no emotions. How can she get close enough to prove him innocent when he can't seem to stand her? Luckily Ty's dragon takes control and pushes Ty towards Ash. As she learns more and more about his secrets she falls deeper for him. As she suspected all along he is innocent. But now to prove it all the while continuing to fight off the evil Garrick. Join Ash as she helps uncover the truth even Ty doesn't know... 

Favorite passages:
- Ash was not a quitter. She’d fine a way to save her dragon. Even if it meant sacrificing her own freedom.
- “I’m ruled by the hunt. If you run from me, I’ll give chase.”
