    Enemies cannot stop love

    Third story, third brother. This was another fun one. I love Rurik's dedication to his family duties, but watching him struggle against his desires for Charlotte made it very interesting. Charlotte's need to prove herself kept me praying for her. Despite enemies on all sides, their love blossoms, and I fell in love along with them. This is my unsolicited review.

    A Magical Read

    Can a fierce dragon shifter and a woman close to the Brotherhood who hunts them ever attract? Not usually but in this paranormal story filled with suspense, conflicted emotions and intense feelings, it is possible. Rurik, the protector of his family of dragon shifters, is also the strongest and fiercest in battle. Charlotte McQueen, sister of the Brotherhood leader, travels to Russia to prove to her brothers she deserves to be one of them. Meeting up with Rurik, turns her upside down because of the intense attraction which quickly spirals out of control. There are many forces at work in this story and it will keep you turning the pages to see what the outcome will be. Lauren Smith takes you through this third book in the Brothers of Ash and Fire series as only she can do... With great characters and descriptions that take you into another world!

    Love it

    Rurik by Lauren Smith is book Three in the "Brothers of Ash and Fire" series. This is the story of Rurik Barinov and Charlotte MacQueen. I have read (and loved) the previous book in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book if you choose to do so. After Charlotte parents died her two brothers Damien and Jason, took over the care of her and they became very protective of her. Not letting her be a part of the family business of hunting dragons and the Brotherhood. But Charlotte wants to prove herself to her brothers and sneaks off to Moscow to try to meet Rurik. None of the others have been able to get close to him. Charlotte is a biochemist and not used to be a seductive women of the world but she catches Rurik's eye. But they both find an attraction and feelings are starting to develop. Rurik has always been the guard and fighter for the family can Charlotte weaken him from that? I have been crazy about this series and this book was just great! Loved it! I can never get enough of Ms. Smith's writing!

    A smokin' hot dragon!

    RURIK starts with a wonderful opening sequence, which sets the pace for the whole story. Charlotte MacQueen is all dolled up to seduce a dragon shifter: Rurik, the Barinov brother with a sexy biker look. Charlotte’s two older brothers, Damien and Jason, would be furious if they knew that she was alone in Russia. Charlotte is a biochemist and she has something she wants to try out; the only other person who knows is her friend Meg, a hunter with the Brotherhood of the Blood Moon. Charlotte, at first, only wants to have a look at Rurik, but at the club, some men bother her, and Rurik comes to her rescue, and things escalate from there. Poor Charlotte and her overprotective, stubborn brothers, Damien and Jason! RURIK has one of the best examples of instalust working perfectly; it’s done rather subtly, and it’s convincing. This book is action-packed, there’s a lot going on, but it’s all well balanced and perfectly paced. It is also, in my opinion, the most romantic of the Brothers of Ash and Fire series. Rurik is totally swoonworthy! And the chemistry between these two! Charlotte is a bit out of her element; she is not a hunter, but she can defend herself when she had to, and in one case I thought it was quite ingenious and pretty funny; in another, daring and brave. There were a lot of fascinating historical details, and the paranormal elements were stunning. There were several conflicts, all realistically handled and satisfactorily resolved. But watch out for that Jason MacQueen; boy, is he ever a loose cannon! I loved the little wink to a classic French movie with the name of a secondary character! As always, Lauren Smith’s prose is gorgeous and fluid, the dialogues spot-on, and there is a wonderful surprise at the end of the book! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I give 4 ½ stars

    Ooh la la this one is good and hot!

    Rurik Barinov is a rich club owner who also happens to be a dragon shifter. Charlotte MacQueen is a biochemist who happens to be the sister of the head of the “Brotherhood” a secret organization of supernatural hunters. Just to be clear not a lot of trust exists between dragon shifters and the Brotherhood. When Rurik and Charlotte meet sparks fly. I am more of a historical romance reader but I love this series. This is a stand alone novel so you do not have to have read Grigori’s book or Mikhail’s. They are Rurik’s older brothers. I’m a fan of Lauren Smith. I really enjoy how she writes her characters. The road to being together is never easy the characters communicate with one another. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
