Elle may be a Davenport, but she’s finding she enjoys life as a mostly-gray sheep of the Davenport family. She kicked off the Daven Bio uniform and now works for their corporate enemy—Cole Pharma, now headquartered in Preor Tower. She’s got massive, muscular, winged aliens surrounding her from sun up to sun down. But there’s only one Preor warrior who throws her world into a tailspin—Ivoth sen Pezet’li. Strong. Sexy. Sinfully seductive. Hers? No. They don’t share the Knowing, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting him. Bad.
Ivoth made a vow to his sire—the sen Pezet line would not end with him. And yet, when he speaks with Elle, scents her skin, and feels her curves against his hard body, he does not know if he can let her go. He craves her more than any other—perhaps even more than he desires to fulfill his vow—and he knows he must make a choice. Keep Elle and never have dragonlets or leave her and lose his heart forever.
Ivoth has to make a choice, but first, he has to keep Elle alive. Someone wants her dead and Ivoth is determined to kill them first. He only prays to Syh he is successful.
Okay briefly, I liked the heroine Elle, as she is used to putting up a front and can outmaneuver most people with her cool attitude. Yet she's bravely taken a huge step and no longer works for her despotic father but instead works with the Preor. Elle and Ivoth are clearly attracted to each other but as the Knowing hasn't kicked in it seems doomed before it begins. Now, I did mention that Elle no longer works for her father’s pharmaceutical corporation and pretty soon she finds herself with a target painted on her back! Luckily there's a rather aggressive Preor in the shape of Ivoth by her side and he's got no intention of letting anyone harm the human female who drives him insane.
Ivoth started in such an interesting way with a character introduced that is frankly bizarre. Charlie has been a constant in Elle’s life since she was a child in an atrocious accident and Charlie might be fluffy but I'd hesitate to call him cute! Dangerous is the word that comes to mind yet he is pivotal to this story. What really made me sit up and take notice though was the mention of the Ujal who originally saved planet Earth and introduced the Preor Warriors and I'm left wondering if Ms Kyle intends to write more stories involving her particular brand of Mermen!
