The dragon-shifter king will do anything to keep his mate alive…even if it means war.
“We’re dragons. We don’t do the mushy friend thing.” – Daniel
After millennia as king of the dragon-shifters, Daniel Ashborne wants a little peace and quiet, especially from the beautiful Hollywood starlet who haunts his memories. His escape tactics end abruptly when he is called to the ER to save the one woman he wants to forget, but who now bears his mark.
Shelby Kincade’s life and movie career were nearly destroyed when Daniel vanished a year ago. Now he’s back, claiming they have been accidentally mated. Getting over him once was hard enough, but she must choose either the life of her dreams or the man she can’t live without.
With peace finally on the horizon between the dragon-shifters and the Hunters, an assassination attempt on the dragon king and his mate shatters everything. Tensions rebuild as Daniel and his loyal team of shifters try to discover who put out the hit. Enemy and ally lines are crossed, but in the end–after the battle ash has settled–no one could have foreseen who has plotted for their own gain.
Uncaged Review: A very unique tale on dragon shifters – who mate for life after having sex three times with the same person. Daniel doesn’t realize that he mated to a beautiful celebrity, until she’s attacked and dying in the hospital. Only her “mate” can give her the energy she needs to survive. When she does come to, the story gets humming along.
I enjoyed the story, but it had some inconsistencies that didn’t make sense to me. First of all, there is way too much anger and angst in Daniel and even though he’s close to going feral, some of his emotions are a bit over the top and repeated. As for Shelby, she’s pretty sassy, but she accepted Daniel back a little too fast – from an extreme hurt to an extreme love.
A nice suspenseful read, that’s not a perfect shifter book, but with enough humor and sass that it kept me entertained. Reviewed by Cyrene
