Can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within?
Sensual. Clever. Daring. There’s only one thing Kendrick yearns for—peace that has eluded the Dragon Kings. Zora may have been made in the image of Earth, but it’s a far cry from home. For too long the Kings have been on the defensive, betrayed time and again. When Kendrick has an opportunity to stop a foe, he takes it. Except he isn’t the only one tracking it. Soon, he finds himself face-to-face with an exquisite swordswoman who holds him enthralled...and sparks passion within his cold heart.
As an Asavori Ranger, Esha has dedicated her life to protecting her people. She trains relentlessly to become one of their best warriors, forsaking everything else. When a treacherous new enemy invades their lands, she vows to destroy it. Esha’s rash decision has her crossing paths with that of a mysterious, handsome outsider. He’s trouble the Rangers don’t need, but she can’t walk away. He awakens desires long buried and dreams neglected. The temptation of their forbidden union is more than she can resist. She’s soon walking a treacherous path—one that could be the downfall for them both.
Kendrick is on a planet that looks like Earth but isn't Earth. He is tracking an enemy and goes right through the border between his side and the human side because he wants to keep tracking the enemy that's almost impossible to see. He meets Esha there where she is also tracking the invisible enemy. Esha is a warrior like many of her people and doesn't believe him at first when he tells her that he's a dragon shifter. Her people know there are dragons but they didn't believe that shifters existed until he shows them that they do.
They agree to let him stay for a few days in order to track and get rid of the invisible enemy but after that they want him to leave. But Kendrick realizes that Esha is his mate and he doesn't want to go back home without her. He doesn't think she'll leave her people to come back to his home with him so he isn't sure what to do.
Watching them get to know one another better as well as search for their enemy was fun. It was a good story and can be read a standalone.
