Maddie Thompson’s life just fell down a rabbit hole. Finding out she's a dragon shifter was one thing—she never quite fit into the human world, and this new reality feels…strangely right. However, discovering the next step is to choose a mate, and if she chooses wrong she'll die, is the other side of crazy. Especially when she already left a piece of her heart with someone who didn't want it.
To say dragon enforcer Fallon Conleth was shocked when the Mating Council summoned him as a potential mate for a newly found dragon doesn’t quite cover it. A mate is rare and precious and many dragons never find theirs. Fallon isn’t sure he’s worthy of the honor, not when so many deserve it more. He’ll just go through the motions and return home alone…until he sees Maddie. The human woman he reluctantly let walk away.
Fallon already broke Maddie's heart once, but if he can't convince her that they're meant to be, she'll die... and he won't be far behind.
I read this prequel after reading several of the other books so I wasn't lost on what was going on with the blue dragons. This is a short novella about how Fallon found his mate, Maddie.
Fallon and his team are firefighters and dragon shifters. He is informed by the mating council that a possible mate has been found the with blue dragon's mark on her neck so he has to travel to meet her not knowing that he already knew her from months before from an arson investigation they both worked on.
There are several dragons there at the mating council headquarters who could possibly be Maddie's mate but Fallon knows for sure that he is her mate. If she chooses the wrong dragon shifter she could die in the mating process so he does his best to make her believe that they are mates but she feels the pull and pretty much knows that already. One of the other dragon shifters gets really upset when she doesn't choose him and Fallon and Maddie find themselves in danger from that as well as other things.
This story might be short but the action was great an we don't miss much since it feels so packed with information and storyline. If you are new to the series then this is a great place to start and if you already love the series then you should read this as well.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
