Lady Hallah of Wardonana isn’t happy about her upcoming marriage even if she did scheme to make it happen to save her people. Hallah really knows nothing about the Lord of Eastania except that he is a dragon rider just like her lover, Dunstan. The only time Hallah can ever forget the pressure on her shoulders by ruling Wardonana is when she is with Dunstan. Hallah knows that after the wedding her time with Dunstan could be over, even if Dunstan has his own ideas on this and also about the Lord who will be claiming Hallah.
Lord Rogin of Eastania came to Wardonana to save the captain of his dragon riders and ended up agreeing to Lady Hallah’s terms of marriage to end the hostilities between the two lands. While not liking what has been done, Rogin has now seen how bad things are in Wardonana and understands why Hallah did what she did. Heck he might have done the same to save his people under the same circumstances. What did surprise Rogin was not only finding out that Hallah had a dragon rider as a lover but that Dustan had plans to bring Rogin in as a lover to both of them.
Both Rogin and Hallah believe that Dunstan’s idea is a pipedream, yet when a kiss happens it shows that the three of them have a whole lot of heat and passion together. Unsure how his people would handle their Lord having two Wardonana lovers, Rogin still accepts a deal to share a tent with Hallah and Dunstan during the trip to Eastania. The time is short for Hallah and Dunstan to show Rogin just what they could have together and also for them all to see if both of their people would accept this type of arrangement. After all it would not only be the Lord and Lady marrying but also the two dragon riders marking their lifemates. By the time they all reach Eastania, will the three of them be in a loving relationship or will one of the two be in the cold?
An agreement to bring two lands together actually brings three hearts together with a passion that will not be denied. Lady Hallah, Lord Rogin and Dunstan all discover this in Beyond the Fire. After so many years of hostilities, I wondered how bringing these two lands together peacefully would go. I found my answers when at their first meeting together, a kiss between Rogin and Dunstan had all three of them in erotic flames. I could see that the pressures of ruling were what pushed both Hallah and Rogin and yet they both finally saw that their real love was what would really bring the two peoples together in a peaceful way after the years of war. I enjoyed watching as all three of these lovers fought for each other and to find a way to be together forever. Ending a war is never easy when you have to bring the two sides together and yet I know that Rogin, Hallah and Dunstan will be able to do so with their love leading the way. Beyond the Fire proves that passion can overcome even the hardest of feelings in the best possible of ways.
