Biologist and witch, Jaida Chel combines nature magick with herbal science to protect Kai, the last shapeshifting dragon on her world of Somerled. But when Captain Brayden Stokes reenters her life, not only is Kai’s life at stake, but so is Jaida’s secured position in the colony. Brayden and Jaida can’t resist the sexual heat between them, even though she knows a relationship would be doomed. Fleet pilots don’t stay planetside for long.
Jaida is torn between Brayden and her dragon and companion, Kai. When Kai morphs into a human twice a year, his sex drive is ravenous. He must mate for twenty-four hours or die. Unrestrained passion between Kai and Jaida temps Brayden into a forbidden encounter. With Jaida’s sassy, wicked ways, the three cross boundaries, exploring eroticism beyond their imagination. When secrets and betrayals are revealed, Brayden must risk everything for one last chance at love.
Brayden is a nice guy who occasionally does bad things. Jaida is a talented, misunderstood woman who is willing to lie to save the people—or animals—she loves. Together they have great chemistry. Add to that a shape-shifting dragon who needs to change shape and mate twice a year and you have a really unique ménage story that entertains from start to finish.
I was really impressed with this book and with this author. I’ll be checking out her writing in the future.
