Life isn’t easy for a modern-day dragon shifter. Unlike those wuss werewolves, dragons can’t just shift and go for a run through the nearest forest. They can’t go flying on a whim. Forget about scared villagers slinging arrows; these days it’s Neighborhood Watch zealots with AK-47s. Then there’s the whole sex issue. Try telling the little cutie at the local Starbucks that a soul-shattering orgasm might end in bed flambé.
No, being a dragon shifter kinda sucks. And for Tyson, it’s even worse—because he’s suddenly in heat. Bad news for the stranger he spies running along Bondi Beach. Ty instantly recognizes Sera as his mate. Now he has to convince her, while also dodging the psychopathic dragon hunter on his tail. Scorching sexual persuasion should do the trick. Hopefully. Because if Ty doesn’t join with his Fire Mate before his heat cycle finishes, bad things will happen. Lots of bad things.
"The release of the Fire Mate. Powerful. Consuming. Incinerating."
Ty has long awaited the arrival of his Fire Mate, but he couldn't have imagined it would happen during his heat cycle and inspire all sorts of complications and unexpected trouble from a little old lady. Regardless, the dragon wants what it wants and the time to claim Sera must be now or else suffer some very inconceivable consequences. There's just one problem, Sera is human and as Ty battles his inner dragon instincts, he must prove to her that some things are possible like dragons and love.
Sera has long felt like the odd ball in any group. Her closest confidant is the Komodo Dragon she cares for, her primary priority as a zoologist. However, from the moment Ty literally knocks her off her feet, Sera battles a growing desire for someone she readily considered hers even if she couldn't understand why. It isn't long before her priorities change and she finds herself caring for a different kind of dragon all together and one she never even thought existed.
This is a combustible story with one of the hottest dragon shifters out there! The kick-off is instant and engaging from the first page with an extremely sexy nostril-flaring dragon shifter and a slightly introverted zoologist. Guaranteed there are sexy times ahead for this pair, hot enough to turn sand into glass.
Although there is potential to expand a bit more on Sera's history, the instant gratification aspect of this story left me with a no-nonsense read that has me quickly searching out for the next in the series. It's sure to be a hit among paranormal romance readers and most especially those with an attraction to dragons. There is no mistaking Lexxie Couper's writing in this story -- it is definitely hot, hot, hot!
