Maeja, queen of the Dragonian race, believes in words like duty, control and honor. She will do anything to keep her subjects safe from spying Earth technology. Her captain-at-arms knows now is the time to teach Maeja her beastly passion is not a curse. With her world on the brink of disaster, she must overcome her inhibitions and let lust control her. Taking two dragon warrior men as lovers might be too much change, but more than just her body is undergoing a cataclysmic transformation. Where dragons rule, passion follows.
Heavy is the crown of a dragon queen who does what she must to ensure her planet’s survival. Her word is law and to break it is a death sentence to those who defy her, but her harshest decree has cost everyone their dragon’s freedom. In order to become a more modern planet and trade with Earth, the people of Castra must keep their true forms secret. This unfortunate ruling has led to madness and eventual death to many draconic people as well as cost the harmonic unbalance of the planet itself. Now to save her planet she must undergo the thrall.
Maeja knows what must be done to save her people. She has been in survival mode since the beginning of her reign centuries ago. Maeja’s captain-at-arms, Geirsson has no intention of letting Maeja live like she is not a woman who has needs or let her cage her dragon any longer. Valdason, elite Dragonbane warrior, may be young but catches on quickly by observation and instinct. These three will have to come together and release their lustful beasts.
This story is heavily female dominated as the crown of this draconian nation is passed on from mother to daughter, but the males are no less dominant in their own right especially on a sexual level. I was fascinated by the rituals of these dragon shifters and the world created around them, but felt that neither was as fully explored as I would have liked with such a unique planet. However, the story is set in a way that it is easy to get caught up in the fantasy with much of the focus surrounding Maeja and Geirsson. With so much eroticism, I devoured this story and would love to see more from this author of this amazing world.
