A dragon's fire cannot be tamed.
In 22nd century sovereign America, women should be seen and not heard. Unfortunately, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN didn't get that memo!
Determined to make her way in the world following the death of her uncle, being "seen" is the least of Cait's problems.
Someone's trying to kill her.
Ordained to guard and protect her, when Theo Pendragon claims Cait as his ward, he finds more than he expects as the flames of passion ignite within the dragon for the first time. But Theo is not alone in his desire, and he must learn to fight for what he wants, even if it costs him his best friend.
Dante, a powerful demigod and beloved friend to Theo, has spent centuries pursuing intellectual endeavors rather than indulging in the heat of desire. But everything changes when Cait arouses an attraction he cannot deny.
But Dante isn't the only one with a vested interest in Cait's future.
America's monarch, an ancient vampire named Corrin, puts no stock in the frivolity of love, and yet a proper queen would boost his approval rating amongst the people. Marrying Cait could hold the key to his survival.
Now, love, desire and need force Cait into an impossible situation with dire consequences.
Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to fighting for a future she never knew she wanted with a man she never imagined she could love. But the key to her future is held in the one secret she has yet to uncover.
I am always on the lookout for a good Dragon book (I may be a little obsessive). So when I found this book on the newly release list, I immediately jump on it. Though I did spend first halve of the book frustrated, and annoyed because the “courting” process which actually took up little more than 50% of the book. The whole time I kept doubting myself, since it should have been
obvious who she will choose in the end (at least I’ve hoped). But because the lack of communication, trust and self-doubting, it took quite a while until Cait and Theo to finally accept each other.
Once the “courting” was settled, that’s when the story is finally starting moving
along. Cait is both the first true mate and a Ward of a Dragon, which is a big deal because Dragons do not have romantic feelings. Which I thought was interesting, that the Dragon kind can love their Ward but not in love with them. This means Cait will change the structure of the Dragons, as well as shifting the power of the supernatural world.
I love all the Dragons that were introduced in this book, each of them has unique personality. I enjoyed reading how they interact with each other, and how protected they are about Cait. I wonder if they will each have their own book? Regardless I look forward to learn more about
them in the rest of the series. I will definitely be reading the next book.
