Publisher's Summary

A jaded warrior who doesn't want to get involved and an irresistible she-dragon on the run.

For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.

Novice dragon, Laura Sampao always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. But when she inherits a family heirloom, her life changes forever. Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. And that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.

Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe. Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.

Lots of "Edge of Your Seat" Action & Romance

This is another great addition to the Billionaires and Bodyguards series. Laura has the ruby and is wearing it around her neck. She knows nothing about a Fire Maiden. Marco lived between his two homes – one in Lisbon and the other in Madiera. Marco was in Lisbon when he sensed Laura’s fear and went out to investigate. He rescued her while she is being chased by baddies. She is not used to shifting into her dragon form so she is very clumsy. It is so funny when they arrive at Marco’s home in their escape from the baddies and she has a hard time landing. I could just picture the landing. LOL.

Olivia, a biotch, broke Marco’s heart about 10 years ago when she left him. He doesn’t want to open his heart again even though he feels something for Laura. She stays at Marco’s house. When he had to go out, Laura stupidly left Marco’s house to meet with Tito, who turns out to be a real bad @ss. Laura calls for help and Fin arrives before she meets with him to distracts him and his goons so Laura can hide until Marco arrives. There was a lot of “edge of your seat” action when Marco and Laura tried to escape them. Shortly after they arrive at Marco’s house, the baddies are there wanting Laura. Laura and Marco shift and take a marathon flight hundreds of miles away to the island of Madeira where Marco has another home and staff. A lot happens when they are on Madeira and a lot of action takes place.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable. I love the fact that during all of the action scenes, Marco, is slowly falling in love with Laura. Marco was hurt by Olivia, who was his fiancée, when she left him and she turns out to be a real bad@ss too. I love how Laura gained confidence and took care of Olivia.

I love Fin’s role in this book. He is awesome and I am rooting for him to find his mate.

Fire Maidens: Portugal

I am totally in love with the whole Billionaires and Bodyguards series by Anna Lowe! Book 4 Fire Maidens: Portugal is a solid winner in the series! This centers around Laura, a fire maiden and Marco a dragon shifter.

Laura is a dragon shifter(and unbeknownst fire maiden) but a novice about to handle everything dragon. She is the only one of her family that is able to shift in decades. She was astounded when she shifted and has been seeking help, guidance, and information ever since. Not really getting any help, it is recommended she seek out the Guardians of Portugal for help and insight. Only once there, the Guardians seem too busy to grant her an audience. There are some people that are interested in Laura though, some rather unscrupulous people. They would love to bring Laura to their side and they go after her.

Marco comes upon Laura being attacked by vampires and dragons. He helps her by getting away. When he sees she is vulnerable by not knowing what to do, he offers his help and home to keep her safe. He keeps telling himself he doesn't want to get involved, but its not right to leave her alone either. For some reason, he knows he must keep her safe!

I really enjoyed Fire Maidens:Portugal. Marco is one closed off, grump guy! He doesn't understand how Laura is getting under his skin, and it's pissing him off! Laura on the other hand, was taken with Marco from the start. She was reluctant to take his help, but she truly needed it-grumpiness or not! This story had everything you can hope for! Interesting storyline, great characters, awesome local, and fun and flirty romance! All the books in the series can be read as a standalone, but you will want to read the rest because you will be hooked!

Enjoyable

Packed with adventure and action and brought to life in audio. You will enjoy this sexy couple and the backdrop of Portugal. Marco is gruff with Laura who is trying to sprout her dragon wings which puts her in a bad position. He takes her to his island to teach her to fly and keep her safe. She not only is his ally but also his mate.

Who wants to visit Portugal?

Oh my...Laura and Marco. This story was worth listening to. I like stories that isn't a love at first sight story. I love that they learned to like each other and eventually found love. If you want to read a book with a good plot and and love, read this one. :)

Great 4th Book in Series

I was not disappointed. Marcus and Laura are wonderful together. When Marcus realizes that his behavior is causing more harm than good, he actually begins to think like the soldier he truly is. Even with his brusque behavior in the beginning, it is understandable as we go through Marcus's thinking process. I liked that this story focused more on Marcus than the other stories focused more on the females. This one was more equally based, and helped to make the story more relatable and enjoyable. Once Marcus accepts that Laura is his mate, his personality suddenly takes a major shift. It's like the wary soldier turns a switch off and becomes someone else or maybe the man he was meant to be.

Thrilling

I just love the combination of Anna Low and Kelsey Osborne. Anna Lowe writes a wonderful story and Kelsey brings it to life. The aerial dog fights are superbly done. There are some pretty steamy scenes but they are tastefully done. You can't go wrong with this book.

Portugal

We're now into the fourth book of the Billionaires and Bodyguards series involving Fire Maidens. We are focused on Marcos, who is slightly jaded from his past. And Laura who just wants answers. It seems as though Marcos and Laura's destinies are meant to intertwine. Especially when Marcos saves Laura from the vampires and gives her refuge. Marcos decides to teach Laura about her newfound abilities, which develops into something more.

As always, I enjoy seeing glimpse of past and future mates in each story. Looking forward to what Ireland brings! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Fire Maidens Portugal provided by the author.

Dragons and danger

Fire Maidens: Portugal is the fourth book in the Billionaires and Bodyguards series. This book follows Laura and Marco’s story. Every book in this series so far has thrown the characters (and the reader) straight into the action from the beginning. Chased by vampires and shifters, Laura needs help, and it arrives in the form of Marco. Laura finds out very early on that Marco is a shifter, and I like that this isn’t a secret between them. There is the usual danger, excitement and steam that’s always present in Anna Lowe’s books, and the narration, as always, was brilliant.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, and I'm leaving a voluntary review.

Awesome narration for a awesome book

Book 4 of Fire Maidens: Portugal by Anna Lowe
Laura is very new to her dragon, after finding a gem she shifts and make her way to Portugal where her heart says she needs to be.
One night a vampire attacks her and Marco comes to rescue and finds out a fire maiden has come to Portugal.
I love that Laura is very independent and not a push over and when Marco comes into her life he doesn’t make her feel stupid because doesn’t know what she doing but instead help her to be a better dragon and find the happiness she’s be longing for.
The narration for Anna Lowe audiobooks are amazing Kelsey Osborne has an amazing talent to bring each character our perfectly but still keep their individually and make each one have a different sound.
Can not wait for Fire Maidens: Ireland

Laura amd Marco


Anyone who reads my reviews will know how much I love Anna Lowe's books but I especially love them once the wonderful Kelsey Osborne has added her magic touch to the audio. This book about Laura and Marco was one I particularly loved. Laura Sampao always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but no one had shifted in so long that they all assumed that power was lost. That is until she inherited a ruby necklace from her great aunt and found herself shifting into a dragon! Her life will never be the same, she decides to go to Lisbon and seek the help of the Guardians there as her family originally came from Portugal.

Marco da Silva, who we met previously when he helped Sergio and Lena in Rome, is the heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, but he’s determined not to take his father's seat as one of the Guardians believing that power and respect should be earned not inherited.

Whilst Laura is waiting for the Guardians to answer her plea for help she finds herself being pursued by a vampire and a dragon through the streets of Lisbon. Her one chance to escape is to take flight, but she is so new to flying will she be able to do it? Just when she thinks everything will be lost and she will be caught by the dragon pursuing her another dragon arrives on the scene and chases her pursuer away. He's, gruff and distant but he offers her refuge, he takes her home to his vila and begrudgingly offers her assistance.

Marco may want to keep himself to himself and stay away from women but when his dragon wakes him late one night and tells him that Laura is in danger, he has no choice but to help her. He defeats the dragon pursuing her and as she has nowhere safe to go he takes her home.

After another attempt to capture Laura by the vampire, the only way for him to keep her safe is to take her to Madera, but the only way they can get there is by flying and not in a plane! He has only done that marathon flight once will a novice like Laura be able to make it?

Once on Maderia the danger level increases, Marco begins to teach Laura all she will need to know, will they be able to get help from Madera's Guardians? But the danger has only increased and powerful enemies are on the move, enemies who will stop at nothing to seize Laura and use her power as a stepping stone to obtaining control of the entire continent.

But by this time Laura and Marco have realised that they are mates and are determined to defeat their enemies and be together. Their love story is action-packed and yet at times sweet, but this is a love story between dragons so there is lots of heat, from a dragon kiss to a dragon bond. I loved it, thank you, Anna and Kelsy you make such a wonderful team.
