I've been a Brenda Joyce fan for a long time, and moving from one country to another, I left tons of books behind. Once I settled, there were a few I NEEDED to put back on my bookshelf, Dark Fires was certainly one of them!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you love the Bragg series, you'll love this edition to the series. Dark Fires is a sensual, hot, passionate story. Nicholas Bragg, the son of Derek and Miranda in Innocent Fire, is living in hell. He is dealing with a family secret he cannot share, his wife is dead and socitey thinks he killed her and most importantly he has a new young ward who he needs to stay away from. Jane, is a young, sensual innocent girl who falls in love with the powerful Nicholas. This book is hot. Jane is willing to do anything to have Nicholas take an interest in her. Little does she know that he is fighting himself and his love and lust for her. Once these two characters come together, they share a firey passion and are desperate for each other's love. This book is great. It has a passionate love scences, strong characters, creative story line, excitement and more. If you can get this book, get it! You'll read it more than once.

Good, but I did want to toss it across the room a few times... 4 Jun. 2008
By kfs25 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I totally agree with the reviewer that sums this book up as being "exasperating but good." I couldn't put it down, it had me turning the pages - and I confess I do love these over-the-top heroes that aren't quite politically correct - but the misunderstandings did at times threaten to overtake the story. Yet I did enjoy it, and as long as you don't mind some melodramatic eye-rolling moments you probably will, too.

VERY HOT!!! 8 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you have read "Innocent Fire," then you must read this novel. It is about Nicholas Bragg, the first-born son of Derek and Miranda. He is also the Earl of Dragmore. He is rumored to have murdered his first wife even after he was found innocent by a British court. He is wild, explosive, uncouthed and as handsome as sin. Jane Barclay becomes his ward and she is determined to tame the Texas rakehell. Their story is simply delicious. One that you will read time and time again.

well written, passionate, sensual and dramatic 8 Dec. 2002
By Rose Chastain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of A Romance Review
Dark Fires is well written, passionate, sensual and dramatic. Reading this book was more or less like watching a drama. Each character seemed to dance out in front of you. The emotions were strong between the lines and some of the love screens would leave you aching.
Superb Victorian Romance - 4th in the Bragg Series 29 Aug. 2011
By Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another truly superb romance by Brenda Joyce. Set in England in 1874-1876, DARK FIRES tells the story of Nicholas Bragg, Lord Shelton, Earl of Dragmore, aka the Lord of Darkness (so called by all of London after the rumors he murdered his wife). He is an American, raised in wild Texas with a mysterious past, who is living on his 25,000 acre estate outside of London, when one day delivered to his door is Jane Weston, the 17-year-old illegitimate daughter of an actress and the son of the Duke of Clarendon, his dead wife's grandfather. The girl is his ward, a ward he didn't know he had.

Instantly attracted to the beautiful young blond, and aware she is becoming infatuated with him, Nick decides if he's to resist her, he must take her to London and find her a husband. Of course that won't be easy as he is infamous, shunned by the Ton and Jane is from the wrong side of the blanket. Not to mention he doesn't really want her to wed. Once in London, their attraction finds its finish and then everything goes to Hell in a hand basket, so to speak. Ah, but the telling of it is just superb. I couldn't put it down.

This is the 4th in the Bragg series (see full list below) but you can read it as a stand alone. There are references to Nick's past which is a part of the earlier books but you won't lose track or find yourself at a loss. Like a lot of people of mixed heritage, Nick is stronger for it...and more handsome. Though Jane was illegitimate, her parents loved each other and she is proud to be their daughter. One of the secondary characters with only a small speaking part is priceless...Thomas the butler, who is there throughout the book. Unlike some romances, the conflict here comes across very naturally from the circumstances, very believable. It's a story of two people deeply in love but fighting it all the way.

I highly recommend this one!
