Dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation. Cursed by his toxic touch, he is deadly to anyone who has contact with him for too long. Set apart from others and hounded by intense loneliness, he craves the lasting connection he believes he cannot possess. Until a chance encounter with a sultry mortal offers a ray of hope…

Evelyn Foxe is the woman of Venom’s every desire, but she’s too busy running from the Russian mob to think about love. As she accepts Venom’s offer to help her escape her precarious situation, she’s skeptical, afraid that he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when a biological weapon is unleashed in her hometown, Evelyn is forced to trust Venom—or risk the dangers of going it alone.

Will they survive the firestorm that rages around them? And can they pull from the ashes a love that will defy all the odds and last through the ages?


Dragon-warrior Venom is alone in the midst of all his coupled-up brothers. His loneliness is exacerbated by the fact that his longing for a mate of his own cannot be fulfilled because, due to his genetic makeup he is toxic (literally) and cannot spend a lot of time with a female without making her sick or even causing her death. He is reduced to short-term interludes that only intensify his longing for a mate. Until he encounters Evelyn Foxe. Evelyn is the perfect fit for Venom but she is weighed down by her current circumstances -out of a job and unable to get another; she’s on the hook with the Russian mob, forced to assume her late mother’s gambling debts and at her wits end, until Venom offers her a lifeline.

 Fury of Obsession is my introduction to the Dragonfury series and to Coreene Callahan’s work, but I am completely blown away by her writing. The story is so much more than what the blurb indicates. The title is apt because the story does not just revolve around Venom’s obsession with finding his mate, but also the obsession shared by Ivar ( and the Razorbacks) and Rodine in destroying the Nightfuries.

I love this story because I was completely drawn into the world Ms. Callahan has created and even though I started at the end, there was enough of a back-story to fill in the blanks. The writing is top-notch and engaging,  the plot is multi-layered and the characters are well-developed.

Fury of Obsession is a top pick for me because Ms. Callahan has skillfully woven a tale that satisfies even as it heightens anticipation for the next in the series. It is the perfect blend of romance, action and suspense.
