Wildfires and demons? No sweat.
His bodyguard? She’s the real danger…
Noble. Dutiful. Serious. All words no one would ever use to describe sea dragon shifter Joe, Prince of Atlantis.
Screw destiny. Battling raging infernos with his bros as a wildland firefighter is infinitely preferable to sitting on a throne. Even with weird monsters stalking the crew…and him personally.
Bring it. He doesn’t need a bodyguard. Especially not her.
The woman of his dreams…
She is Seventh Novice. And if she’s ever to become a Knight of Atlantis—the first and only one who isn’t a sea dragon—she has to be perfect. Perfectly honorable. Perfectly dutiful. Perfectly in control of her deadly inner monster.
Which would be a lot easier if she hadn’t been assigned to protect the infamous Prince. A man with the common sense of a stunned herring…and a body that drives her beast into a frenzy of desire.
Now Joe has to thwart fate one last time. Without revealing his secret...
He can see the future.
And if he claims his mate, she’ll die.
Joe is a sea dragon shifter and he's got a huge secret...he has visions of the future so he knows that he cannot claim his mate because he's seen a vision of her dying if he does. He is a Prince but works with a firefighting group that he thinks of as his family.
Seven saved him from an attack and after a bit of a problem, she is named as his bodyguard but Joe and Seven both know that she's also his mate.
Seven thinks that the reason Joe doesn't want to claim her as his mate is because of his playboy lifestyle and doesn't want to settle down but he's actually trying to save her life. She and Joe reunite with his Hotshot firefighting crew and they seem to know right away that Seven is his mate but there's a lot they don't know.
When Seven witnesses Joe have a terrible nightmare, he tells her his big secret and why they can't mate and then they make a plan to keep everyone safe until the danger passes so they can mate later. So their romance is a slow burn even though they lust for each other and want each other but have to wait.
But it irritated me a little that Joe decided not to tell his friends the truth about his visions. If he wanted to keep them safe, all he had to do was tell them the truth, I know they would have believed him and they could have helped him. So he and Seven work behind the scenes to try and keep his visions from coming true all the while trying to keep their hands off each other. But it was a wonderful romance, the characters are feeling so familiar since this is the 3rd book in the series I've read and the overarching storyline of the evil in the wilderness they've been dealing with is really interesting. Plus it's fun seeing so many different kinds of shifters.
Because this is a spinoff series from the Fire & Rescue Shifters series, we get to see characters from that series at times and this was one of those times. I really liked that because I adored that series and it was nice to see some of those characters again.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
