Back Cover Blurb:

As the head of security of Vegas's Crown Jewel casino―and its hidden dragonshifter sanctuary―ice dragon Darius Dachien commands respect. Unfortunately, that respect isn't always reciprocated. In fact, when it comes to the stunning Mei Chen, hostility might be a better word. Which makes things even harder for Darius, since Mei is his dragon mate. Without her, his dragon form is fading fast...and once lost, will be gone forever.

Mei can't deny the fierce chemistry that simmers between them. If Darius were ever to discover who―or rather, what―she really is, she wouldn't just lose him, but her place with the dragonshifters. The moment Mei's past comes crashing into her present, she realizes her time for secrets has ended. Now she must reveal her true self...and risk both her life and her heart with the one man who could destroy her.


He stared hard, communicating his displeasure with a lift of his dark brows. “What can I do for you?” His question was gruff, and she sensed his dragon, barely leashed under his human skin.

Mei sat across from him in a black chair without invitation. A gray tie coiled in a perfect circle on his desk, the edges perfectly aligned. She stared at the weave and symmetry of the fabric rather than the overwhelming feeling of being ensconced with him.

“I’ve never been in here.”

He frowned and open-palmed his hands toward the ceiling. “You want a tour?” His voice was sarcastic, and he dropped his palms to his flat stomach, drawing her eyes. She knew what he looked like under the business suit. The images of him naked, strong, in their bed in Paris cascaded in rapid succession, making it hard to breathe. The scent of him, the heat of him surrounded her and she looked at the tie as if it was a lifeline to sanity.

Silence stretched, becoming loud and distorted with numbing white noise, making him too close and too far at the same time. She raised her eyes to his, seeing him staring, waiting for her to speak.

The fax. She had to get answers on Bo Quan. “You’re angry with me.”

“I’m frustrated with you. There’s a difference. It’ll be six years in—”

“I know.” Immediately, the images she’d pushed aside crowded back in her mind and a tight ball of longing, edged out her current fear. He was supposed to have been a fling for her, an escape anthem, a declaration of independence. Then she’d woken to find his binding dragon mark on her hand and all her hopes for a new life had disappeared.

My Review:

Scott hits the ground running with this one. The storyline is intensely rewarding and exceptionally captivating. Her colourful descriptions allow you to see and feel the world surrounding her characters. I felt as if I was flying and swimming right alongside them.

This novel was full of such real and interesting characters. Their larger than life personalities were fantastic. Getting to know Mei’s history and true self was absolutely fantastic. Combine this with Darius’ in your face personality and you have a winning couple that will keep your attention. Not only were they fantastic individually and as a couple, but the plight in which they find themselves was riveting. The re-emergence of characters from past novels tied the series together, while providing a stellar supporting cast for these two.

Overall, this was a fantastically magic novel that transported me to Vegas and the world of dragons. I can’t wait to go back!
