Valla Moonring, an assassin for an order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered to join an expedition through the Wastelands of Aria, a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.
To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.
Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…
Dragon in the Blood is a marvelously sensual tale of shifter seduction at its finest.
Valla is tasked with a dangerous mission to the Wastelands of Aria. Her commander and brother, Kol, feels its necessary to send along a representative from Nightwing Security, AKA Conn.
Conn is confident, charming and drives Valla mad. She is attracted to him but continues to push him away. Conn has kept his distance from Valla but now he seizes his chance to ignite a passion that has been brewing for quite some time.
One time, gone a little too far, chemistry and soulfire is released marking them as a mated pair.
In the Wasteland, Conn and Valla find themselves mated and running for their lives.
I simply love Cross’ ability to make totally fictional, shifting characters into a relatable, magnetic plot. Drawing you in, keeping you riveted is a lot to ask for so I was delighted that Dragon in the Blood masterfully did both.
I received this copy of Dragon in the Blood from Juliette Cross in exchange for a honest review.
