A shapeshifting dragon on the verge of starvation…
For Elaina Drake, sparkling jewels aren’t a frivolous matter. Without more treasure for her hoard, she’ll starve. On the run from her murderous father, she’s desperate enough to steal—er, acquire.
A modern-day knight seeking redemption…
Disgusted by his father’s immorality, Alexander Wyatt, Chicago’s biggest corporate titan, is determined to be a man of honor. Yet the theft of a necklace, stolen by an exotic beauty at his latest fundraiser, threatens to destroy all his charitable work.
A predator made prey…
Passion ignites between thief and philanthropist, sparking a game of temptation where jewelry is the prize. But when Elaina’s exposure jeopardizes Alex’s life, she must choose: run again to evade her father—or risk both their lives for love.
Now anyone who knows me, fully realises I am most definitely not a fan of billionaire type romance with dominant males sharing the morals of an alley cat! So the hero, Alex, felt like a breath of fresh air and even though unfortunately he has father issues, I delighted in his wish to improve lives and make amends.
Alex is not the only one with a parent who perhaps seems anything but ideal, but if I say more, it would ruin the surprises within this book. I will say, it's almost instant romance but with a dragon; I guess we should've expected more than a little heat, pun intended!
If you seriously shy away from too much sex in books, you might not appreciate some scenes. I really liked the knight idea but if frank, I struggled to quite believe in such instant and intense romance. I applaud Ms Gold for trying to explore the psyche of the characters and how the past effects the present.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
