Grace Hall is a nurse, not a doctor. But when five Preor warriors are brought to the emergency room and the doctors don’t do a darn thing for them, she steps forward. Sure, they are aliens with massive wings who turn into dragons whenever they wish, but they still look human-ish. One particular warrior draws her more than the others. His teal wings, muscular body, and pain-glazed eyes have her bouncing between two desires—needing his touch and desperation to heal him. When she’s filled with the knowledge to treat the males, Grace gets to work. She’s going to save the Preor males, even if it kills her. When she loses consciousness after healing them, she realizes it just might.
Kozav sen Aghin, Primary Warrior of the Preor Third Fleet, wakes weaker than a hatchling on the Preor battleship. He’s fully healed yet plagued by a feeling that something is wrong. And something is… Kozav found his mate on Earth and she was left behind—alone and unprotected. Unacceptable. Kozav still carries the guilt for his actions during the great conflict and he is determined not to fail so greatly again. The curvaceous, green-eyed, dark haired human female is his to protect, his to claim and his to keep.
When danger intrudes and someone attempts to take Grace from his life, Kozav is prepared to do whatever it takes to bring Grace back to his side. Even if it means killing one of his own. Or will it be Kozav with a sword through his chest? For Grace’s sake, he hopes not.
Grace is a nurse, overworked, underpaid and yes, you get the idea! However, she's not about to standby and ignore the Warriors brought in who clearly need medical help. Okay, they have wings, are truly beautiful with uniquely coloured skin, but what does any human really know about their physiology? Actually it just so happens that Grace seems to know what to do but why is that do you think? Oh, well maybe it's what the Preor call "the knowing", when mates meet but if so, then Grace is about to discover a whole new world!
I think it would be impossible not to like Grace as she is hard working, kind and pretty devoted to her sick mother. Kozav, due to recent events, has been promoted and is determined to do his best for his people. What he hadn't expected was to find he has a mate who wants nothing more than to return to Earth! Oh, Grace has good reasons and Kozav is quickly onboard with helping her but his slightly clueless ideas when it comes to human females see him doing things he thinks a warrior shouldn't do. Protect Grace at all costs, yes that's what Kozav wants to do but it's not going to be as easy as he hoped!
I liked that Grace and Kozav took time to know each other and didn't just give in to instant lust. There's a budding relationship here that's allowed to grow without being forced due to hormones which actually worked much better I thought. Favourite character has to be Grace’s Mum, Donna, and I'd have quite liked to see more of her. However, reading about Kozav changing into his dragon form and risking all for Grace was without a doubt my absolute favourite part of this story, sigh. Yes, most of the book is on two legs but when those dragons come out to play or fight it's a glorious thing and I'd dearly love to see more!
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
