Title: Wildfire Sea Dragon
Author: Zoe Chant
Genre: Urban fantasy/shifter romance
Release date: 16th September 2019
“Noble. Dutiful. Serious. All words that no one would ever use to describe sea dragon shifter Joe, the Crown Prince of Atlantis.
As the Heir to the Pearl Throne, he’s supposed to be preparing to rule a vast underwater empire…which is exactly why he’s on a fire crew in the ass-end of Montana. Battling raging infernos with his bros is infinitely preferable to wearing a crown. Even with the demons and weird monsters.
Okay, so the forces of evil are getting a little personal. He can handle it on his own, like he always has. The last thing he needs is a bodyguard. Especially her.
The woman of his dreams…
Her only name is Seventh Novice. Everything else, she left behind long ago. If she’s to achieve her dream of becoming a Knight of Atlantis—the first and only one who isn’t a sea dragon—she has to be perfect. Perfectly honorable. Perfectly dutiful. Perfectly in control of the mindless monster who shares her soul.
Which would be a lot easier if she hadn’t been assigned to protect a man with the honor of an alley cat and the common sense of a stunned herring…and a body that drives her beast into a blind frenzy of desire at first sniff.
He’s her fated mate. But Joe’s good at thwarting fate. After all, he’s had a lot of practice…
Because the man that everyone thinks is carefree and careless has a secret.
Joe can see the future.
And if he claims his mate, she’ll die…”

Out of all the books I come across, so few of them have people of colour and BAME characters. I am a white girl, but I’ve written a black protagonists before: Saeth in Vox Saeth and Amanda in The Witch’s Touch.
I love reading diverse characters and unfortunately, BAME, POC and LGBTQ+ characters don’t often just fall into our laps. But this one did! Not only is Wildfire Sea Dragon at the top of the charts just a few days after release, but it’s part of a sub-genre I haven’t ever encountered before: Fire and Rescue Shifters.
Paint me intrigued. It makes total sense, too. Firefighters are popular in the romance genre, so a dragon/firefighter/prince protagonist? Hello mama.
The sub-genre is really unique at this stage and who knows, it might really take off, even if it is a bit niche. Just like the vampire pirates theme, I’m tempted to look into this one, too. This might be book three in the series but from the blurb, Wildfire Sea Dragon looks like it can be read as a standalone.
Where can I get it?
As with most of our new releases, Wildfire Sea Dragon is only available in e-book format right now. Book one and two in the series Wildfire Griffin and Wildfire Unicorn both have paperback editions, so it probably won’t be long until book three gets the paperback treatment, too.
The Amazon link to Wildfire Sea Dragon is right here.
