Back Cover Blurb:

Tired of reporting the news but never investigating, Jane Hartley is determined to expose the truth of the Carlisle dragon hunters. While meeting with one of her sources, she spots the tall, blond dragonman she first saw three months ago back on Stonefire. When the dragonman warns her off, Jane becomes more determined than ever to find the truth before he does.

With most of the threats to his clan under control, Kai Sutherland wants to find a way to take down the Carlisle hunters for good. In the beginning of his investigation, he sees the human female his dragon wants. Putting aside his own needs, he tries to scare her away to focus on the hunters, but the female refuses to go.

As they work together to discover the hunters' secrets, the attraction between them threatens the investigation. Kai never expected to find his second chance, yet as the danger amps up, can he find a way to have her while still protecting his clan?

My Review:

I love how the authenticity and in depth development of the background of the story mixes with the supernatural reality that the characters live. The interactions between the characters were genuine and the world was larger than life. The dragonshifters really step it up a notch in this one. Kai’s latest mission really has me intrigued, even if it’s all going skewbald already. Donovan mixes action, suspense, and comical interludes in such a natural manner that I couldn’t put it down.

I love how Donovan develops her dragon shifters & their world just a little more with each new story. Stonefire is a larger than life place that is seeped with history, mythology, and fantastic characters. The dragon-human interactions are priceless and really show a lot about who the dragon shifters are.

Donovan’s inviting yet snarky style really brings her characters to life. It’s as if I can really feel them, allowing me to know them on a much deeper level. The Kai-Jane dynamic was absolutely priceless. The aura about them is unforgettable and infused with unmistakable chemistry. Jane & Kai are so cute & sweet together. But they also sizzle. I love how their relationship is more than just hot, more than simply a mate bond. There’s true friendship there too. Kai’s dragon may be my favourite one yet. It has such a personality of its own and was so much fun. Kai’s over the top jealousy was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed this crack in his perfectly polished veneer. His alpha-ness on the outside & his vulnerability on the inside makes him a character that you can’t forget. Jane’s assertiveness puts her on par with Kai, making them quite the couple. Their interactions are so real & genuine, while at the same time being larger than life.

The romantic tension between these two is palpable, and apparent in every aspect of the story. Combined with the fast paced, danger fraught story Donovan has created a winning story.
