For one woman, he will risk more than his life...

Rafferty Powell has exchanged challenge coins with his arch-nemesis Magnus Montmorency, and their next battle will be their last. But Rafferty never expected to meet a woman whose desire for Magnus’ downfall matches his own—and whose presence sparks Rafferty’s long-awaited firestorm.

Since facing her own mortality, investigative reporter Melissa Smith has resolved to live without fear. She’s determined to make the seemingly untouchable Magnus pay for his role in ending her friend’s life – no matter the price to herself.
When her quest entwines with Rafferty’s, Melissa finds herself risking more than she ever thought possible. Because the heat between them unleashes the darkfire—an awesome force of Pyr legend, one that won’t be sated until everything they know has been tested and remade.
My Review
When challenge coins have been exchanged, Rafferty is now determined to be the one to destroy Magnus, once and for all. But when he meets Melissa Smith he is intrigued, but very suspicious of her.  When he first meets her he catches her stealing, so he doubts her. But then when he realizes that she is his firestorm, he knows he must protect her. But then he starts to realize that his firestorm is far different than any other, because  its where the 'Darkfire' is introduced. One which is prophesied to change everything. Even though Rafferty is unsure of Melissa, he also can't resist the passion that rises between them....

The Hero 
Rafferty, is one of the older Pyr, who has much experience on his belt. Rafferty has always been loyal to the Pyr and one of the most talented. From the moment that Melissa enters into his life, he changes. His primary goal is to protect her at all costs. His feelings for her overwhelm him, and his protective instincts go into hyperdrive whenever danger comes calling. However he also knows that she is the one he has been waiting for....His Mate. 

The Heroine 
Melissa, a reporter and a journalist, has recently lost a dear friend who was murdered. As such she is determined to find justice, but she never expects her world to change forever. Melissa knows that she can never have a family like she has dreamed of. But when Rafferty comes into her life, she starts to hope again, that he may be the best thing that has happened to her.

My Thoughts 
 Darkfire Kiss is the sixth installment of the series, and even though it was a enjoyable one, it would probably be my least favorite of the series. I just was never fully able to really get into the story very well, at least not until the end. So I was a bit disappointed since I have been looking forward to Rafferty's story ever since I started reading the series. It didn't flow very smoothly, not like her other books, and I didn't enjoy it as much as the others. Overall though it was a comfortable read that one could relax with, and even I was a bit disappointed, I still enjoyed it, just not as much as the others that I have read so far. I am hoping the the next in the series I will enjoy more.
