Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.
Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.
Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all.
Some Dragons are in hibernation but there are still those awake in the world but cautiously protecting their Clans. Keelin has led a sheltered life and always longed to spread her wings (no pun intended!) and it's only in recent months she has finally escaped from her overprotective family. Whilst helping track down her missing brother, Drake, she met Bran a fellow Dragon who seemed beyond interested in her but Keelin has no wish to exchange one gilded cage for another. No, Keelin has a job - the protection of the Stavros Wolf Pack and absolutely no intention of giving up her new found independence; but Bran is one very determined Dragon willing to woo her in any way he can. Yes, he feels the urge to mate with her but he sees the woman she is and wishes to cherish not crush her. Keelin is up for a little fooling around as hey, that Dragon is mighty fine but whilst she is looking at Bran, she fails to see the danger that's stalking her and pretty soon it's clear there's a target and it's painted on Keelin's back!
I love these characters and the slightly cuckoo world they live in. I mean the very idea of a Dragon living amongst Werewolves is just crazy and yet, Ms Reus pulls it off. Nothing says love like a male ready to barbecue your enemies and if he accidentally takes out the odd truck, well that's just plain old enthusiasm. That's what I love about these stories, they are just such fun to read. We have a likable heroine who is loyal but she's paired here with a male who respects her and although he is protective, Bran never tries to stifle her. Keelin might put her foot in it occasionally but when their passion ignites, it's a blaze to warm the cockles of the hardest heart!
I really enjoy this series full of sexy shifters, but I think it's the world the author has created that really keeps me coming back. From a fight club to a bar run by a Half Demon, there's always something interesting going on and speaking of Half Demons, I can't wait to read Bo's story. Fast fun and well written, what's not to love? Another winner from Ms Reus!
