Back Cover Blurb:
Dr. Cassidy “Sid” Jackson’s inner dragon went silent over twenty years ago. Ever since, she’s battled episodes that have tested her sanity. Aware she doesn’t have much time left, she prepares for a new doctor to come to Stonefire and take her place. However, before the new doctor arrives, Sid is attacked.
Dr. Gregor Innes lost his mate and son in childbirth over a decade ago and dedicates his life to ensuring his clan remains healthy. His dedication was renewed after meeting a certain dragonwoman doctor a few months ago. There is no way he will take another mate and risk her life. He’s determined to keep his distance.
When Stonefire asks for assistance, Gregor has no choice but to see the female his dragon wants. Attraction builds, but Gregor and Sid both hold back. Will they find a way to overcome their obstacles to be together? Or will forces tear them apart?
What a story! Donovan returns to her world of dragon shifters with a vengeance, taking readers on a hot and exciting ride with so many implications. I loved the cause and effect that you could see throughout along with the very fun story. I also enjoy how her entire dragon shifter world is starting to come together, creating a complex whole where we get to know the different clans and how they interact with one another. The entire dragon world is coming to life in a big way!
I love the indepth look at the medicalness of being a dragon shifter. The way that they look at the dual parts of the brain was fascinating and really opened up a lot of possibilities. It was so vivid and yet technical, but also easy to understand. The mix was fantastic.
On top of all of that, this novel is really set off by the fantastic characters that Donovan has created. Both Sid & Gregor's pasts are enough to break your heart, but their willingness to do anything and everything to be together was fantastic. And the chemistry between them? It definitely sizzles and is so easy to understand.
Donovan's books are ones that you simply can't put down. This was by far and wide my favorite yet.
