I love romance and reading about two lover birds usually makes me to reflect on my love life . I can wait to read this book. Am adding it on my shelf and starting to read it today in the afternoon.
Love runs the world.

Heat obviously has a thing for Brimstone, if only because he accepted who she was and found a way to help her to live with it. Anyone would be grateful. Also, of course, he is a very powerful mage. Brimstone? I think he's lonely. What really got to me was the way their romance was announced - in passing. The author gave them one sentence. Wow!

I feel that with books, as with movies, adding a bit of romance automatically increases the general appeal of the book to readers. I am also all for a relationship between Brimstone and Heat.

I think they will definitely be able to make it work. They seemed very compatible and cared for each other.

I even made up a 'ship' name for them - HeatStone! They definitely belong together, there was a lot of chemistry between them.
That's a great name. I agree, they belong together. They have chemistry.

They have to be destined to be together. It was Brimstone who brought her back when her amulet was melted. It was Brimstone who can pull her through the rain without getting a welt. Plus, she's believed in him even before they met

They complement each other. I hope their love blossoms in the sequel.

I was rooting for them and I hope their relationship grows in the next book of the series.

When team Crimson is reunited later in the novel, Brimstone and Heat develop a little bit of a romance. What are your feelings about this?
Personally, I think it was bound to happen. There were instances earlier in the novel when Brimstone showed such care for Heat. I’m definitely in favor of these two moving forward with their relationship. Even though it will surely never be easy for the two, I feel like it is highly unlikely they will find a stronger connection with anyone else. I hope their young love has room to flourish.
I too felt that it was bound to happen. I did think something would develop between her and Neutron at one point but I was very happy that she and Brimstone finally acknowledged their feelings for each other.

I knew it was going to happen. They seemed to have a special connection right from the beginning.
Did anyone else think they were too young to get married though?

I love this match! They are so perfect for each other. You could see the chemistry of these two and I was rooting for them. I would love to see their relationship grow.

With as much as they have in common, it seems inevitable that they get together. However, there is still more series to come. It'll be interesting to see what does or doesn't develop.

I think this is a good love story. :)

I think it is usually good for a book to have a love interest. But is best for it to be background unless that is the point of the book.
