Locked away in the lair beneath his home, dragon shifter Niko Drakon suffers terribly from a massive overdose of a synthetic drug that forces his body into the mating heat. When her sweet, alluring scent hits him, Niko's dragon overtakes him and he breaks free from his bonds.
Captured by the snarling, winged creature, Eris thinks she must be hallucinating when her touch transforms him into a human male-a dangerously sexy and highly seductive male. After one taste of Eris, Niko realizes a single week will never be enough. He wants her forever by his side and in his bed. But convincing the human to take a chance on a dragon won't be easy and suddenly Niko is faced with the hardest choice in his centuries of life.
I found it so interesting the way the hero Niko got a small taste of his own medicine as in the last book, Wicked Dark Dragon, he didn't exactly represent himself well. Having produced drugs designed to interfere with the dragons natural mating heat, this time he finds himself in a precarious position when his home is invaded by a lone female. Is she a thief or an enemy? Well, it turns out she's neither as Eris is there to finally find out what's happened to her missing friend, Ivy. What Eris never in her wildest dreams imagined though was to be hunted down by a dragon! He's scary, he's scaly, and he turns into a gorgeous man but what on earth is going on as Eris is about to take a walk on the wild and dangerous side!
I'm like a lot of readers and thoroughly enjoy the idea of dragons but the slant the author gives here is highly entertaining. Whilst I'm not particularly a fan of the whole mating heat scenario, I am enjoying the journey this series is taking readers on. Yes, we know the dragons have enemies but what Eris goes through in Renegade Dragon was so fantastical that I struggled to keep up and frankly even now it's ended I'm still trying to work things out! I don't mind though because I'm sure explanations are forthcoming as we delve deeper into the mythological past of these amazing characters.
I'm aware Ms Lopez has had difficulties with a previous publisher but I'm also saddened to hear that she has been going through health issues. I truly hope her fans will be supportive at this time and like myself, wait patiently for her next release. As for this series, quite simply these stories are fun, naughty and entertaining and there's nothing wrong with that!
