Tristan, the newest Dragon King, is having a tough time fitting in. Despite his ability to transform into a proud, strong dragon at will, no one knows where he came from or how he became a Dragon King, including himself. When trouble arises in the form of the mob, Tristan is going to have to put aside his questions and band with the other Dragon Kings to protect Dreagan. As if things weren’t complicated enough, he is about to find something worth fighting for more important than the Dragon Kings…

Sammie Miller, pub owner in Oban, has been scorned by her business partner—and former lover. Used as a front for money laundering with the mob, Sammie is in great danger once she realizes what has happened. Barely escaping, she plans to rest at Dreagan for only a day before going back on the run. When Tristan swears to protect her, Sammie thinks his efforts will be in vain—the mob is too powerful, and it will take more than the average man’s devotion to keep her safe. But the closer she gets to Tristan, and the more he learns his secrets, Sammie can’t deny that having a Dragon King who worships you, body and soul, isn’t such a bad thing…

I have a soft spot for Tristan. He was having a hard enough time adjusting to becoming a Dragon King, but now he must accept all these new revelations about his past. It is just not the timing for Sammi to come into his life. I wanted things for him, in hopes to ease some of his confusion. Yep, definitely have a soft spot for that Dragon King!

I really enjoyed Sammi’s character. She’s got fight, and like I’ve said before, that is my favorite kind of heroine. She doesn’t want to bring those at Draegan down with her so she tries to stay on the run. Silly Sammi. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t need to protect them! I’m glad that she is going to get the opportunity to really have a relationship with her sister Jane. Surrounding herself in the circle of the Dragon Kings family really helps her to relax and trust.

I am going nuts with these attacks on the Dragon Kings, and they just know who is behind them. I know Con is trying to make sure he doesn’t disrupt the close group of Kings by being absolutely sure about the enemy, but this is going on WAY too long. The ending just proves that they have no time to waste and made my anxiety for the next book pretty high. The Kings need to get back to the Dark, and fast. A character (one of my favorites) is counting on them!

Luckily I have the next book already because this is definitely one I need to marathon! I really enjoyed it and am so nervous for the next book. This storyline is so intense!

Right now, if you buy the kindle book, you can Whispersync the audio for $3.49! I love it when I find those Whispersync deals! Check first though to make sure that deal is still available when this post comes out.
