Lure of the Dragon
Nothing is forbidden to this elite corps of shifter bodyguards and private investigators…except falling in love.
Good dragons? Bad dragons? Twenty-four hours ago, private chef Tessa Byrne didn’t know about the terrifying world of shifters. Now she knows too much, like the fact that a ruthless dragon lord is determined to claim her — forever. Tessa flees to Maui, where sunny skies, swaying palms, and a handsome stranger conspire to play tricks with her heart. Can she truly trust Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters to save her from a gruesome fate? …
Uncaged Review: This has to be my favorite dragon shifter book in a long time. Action, humor and likeable characters build this world of shifters. In this outing we meet Tessa, a private chef, who is kidnapped by a man when she goes on an interview for a job with a real estate tycoon, Morgan Damien. But he’s not all human, he’s a dangerous shifter….and when Tessa escapes, her friend gives her the contact she needs to help protect herself in Hawaii. Tessa is thrown into a world she never knew existed – and may be more a part of it than she knows.
This is the first book in this series, and I’ll guarantee I’m reading the next one. The author gives insight on not only the shifters in human form, but what it feels like to be a shifter – and the inner dialog between the human part of them, and the animal form. A lot of fun comes with the banter of the shifters that Tessa goes to for help. These shifters used to be part of an elite group of military, and when Tessa shows up, not all are as keen on helping her as Kai, a dragon shifter that may hold the key to Tessa’s heart.
Plenty of action, a beautiful location, suspense and fun with the shifter banter and a strong heroine makes this a strong read – and places it high on my shelf of favorites. Reviewed by Cyrene
