Liza O reviews Flossie Benton Rogers's Lord of Fire-Wytchfae 5

Lord of Fire – Wytchfae 5 
by Flossie Benton Rogers
Paranormal Fantasy Romance

Flossie: Hi, Liza! Flossie Benton Rogers here.
Liza: Hi Flossie
Peep Rep: Hi Flossie!

Flossie: Thank you for featuring Lord of Fire and for giving me the opportunity to tell you a little about it.

Liza: I'm also reviewing it, but please tell my readers more about this series first, although I have to say, I had no trouble jumping in at book 5. It stands firmly on its own.

Flossie: Glad to hear it. First, I thought we’d start with a couple of comments about the Wytchfae world that permeates each book in the series and look at the definition of a Wytchfae.

The World of Wytchfae: Closer to us than a hair’s breadth are the realms encountered in the Wytchfae series of paranormal romance / urban fantasy novels. These mysterious places are populated with faeries, witches, demons, angels, goddesses, dark guardians, ghosts and other magical beings. The beings dwell in multiple dimensions parallel to our own earth dimension. Some of the worlds are welcoming, others dangerous and forbidding. Through the darkest night and the fright of unchained chaos, love will always flicker.

Wytchfae: A Wytchfae is a trained witch who has at least a drop of fae or faery blood thrumming through her veins. This bloodline back to ancient Celtic times heightens her powers over what mere training can do. A Wytchfae resides on the human earth plane but sometimes has occasion to travel back and forth in time and also to visit the Underworld and other parallel dimensions. A man can be a witch and have fae blood but is not called a Wytchfae. He is usually called a male witch, warlock or sorcerer. Different Wytchfae have different skills and various levels of power. Garnet McAnna, the Wytchfae heroine in Lord of Fire, has great tracking ability but also likes to play with knives and guns.

Lord of Fire – Wytchfae 5

She’d catch the demon tonight if it killed her.

When The Hawk meets his Wytchfae, the result is spontaneous combustion.

Garnet McAnna chases the demon responsible for attacking and enslaving innocent fae familiars. She never expected to run headlong into a mesmerizing stranger known as The Hawk. Nor did she anticipate the way his masculine power kindles a womanly flame within her.

Exiled from an elite warrior's brigade, Lord of Fire Gabriel Hawk guards his heart and his solitude. He wants nothing to do with the world of men or the realm of fae. Then a beautiful Wytchfae bursts into his life, stirring desire and sparking need. Garnet is on a dangerous mission, and he can't let her face the evil alone. What else can he do but fight beside her? When she disappears, he raises hell to find her. Will he be too late? Will darkness conquer this couple or will love burn their souls into one?

Flossie's Memorable Quote: “Garnet McAnna, you’re the hottest woman in thirteen worlds.”

Liza's Memorable Quote: “Stay feisty. It will keep you alive.”

Garnet dimpled as morning’s first whispered glow cast an incandescent gleam on their half-naked flesh. Lying on their sides, bodies touching, an electrical current seemed to bolt back and forth between them. Reaching out, she raked a hand through The Hawk’s blue-black hair. She loved the sight of it spread out on the pillow and its silken texture in her fingers. The hard planes of his chest enticed her to seek him there as well.

One corner of his mouth tilted into a smile. “Brazen woman.”

Liza: So here's my Review
I thoroughly enjoyed Lord of Fire by Flossie Benton Rogers.

The two main characters, Garnet and Hawk, are totally likable. The heroine, Garnet, is a wytchfae and the hero, Hawk, is a former powerful Helios soldier.
Garnet invades Hawk’s territory while looking for a demon who is stealing people for the other dimensions’ slave trade business. While they find the reptilian demon easy enough, the creature proves stronger than anticipated and gets away. Then things go south, or perhaps I should say, other dimensionally south.

The book is non-stop action the whole way through. Every time Garnet and Hawk seem to have the upper hand something happens. Near the end, a stunning reveal is disclosed that will make you say “Ah, now I see why this demon gave them so much trouble.”

Good news! The story has an HEA (some don’t you know) and the couple gets frisky at the end. While sparks had been flying throughout the book, the author thankfully recognized that having sex in the middle of life and death situations with a dangerous enemy wouldn’t be a good idea, so she waited until they conquered all their troubles to conquer their love. I thought it most prudent and give the author 5 stars for her riveting tale and the good sense to wait for frisky entertainment. (I, personally, didn’t need the sex scene at all, but given the publisher, I’m thinking it was mandatory. Nor did I have any complaints with its inclusion.)
