Synopsis: Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon. He's both. He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it. When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.
Drakon's Promise by N.J. Walters (Blood of the Drakon #1)
He’s wealthy, he’s dominant and he’s very, very sexy. Clearly Darius is a force to be reckoned with, and his secrets are kept well hidden. How can you tell people you are thousands of years old and that you truly are larger than life, more than a mere human, but part dragon, too? Darius is a drakon and a very alpha one, at that. His blood has healing properties that make him a target of the Knights of the Dragon, an honorable sounding name with dark and sinister underpinnings.
Sarah is a librarian, books are her domain, but when she stumbled on an ancient tome, her own secrets, as well as her very existence are forced into a dark world of the impossible, filled with dangerous secrets and deadly evil. The Knights want that book and working with Darius may be all that keeps them alive.
The race against capture and death is on as Darius and Sarah both realize they have more in common than survival. Is it the desire to live that creates the raw and animalistic attraction between them or have they each found their other half?
N.J. Walters has created some high tension steam, life-threatening bad guys and a world that goes on under the radar of humanity. DRAKON’S PROMISE starts its world building at the start, but it is cut off as the characters take center stage with passionate sex, hidden secrets and death nipping at their heels. Their romance doesn’t steep until it is well-brewed, it explodes like an egg in the microwave!
I think Sarah may have been my favorite character, a nice person without hidden agendas, while I thought Darius was sometimes just short of a knuckle-dragging alpha male to whom compromise is a four-letter word. If you are looking for lots of racy heat, nasty villains and an intriguing take of dragons and their offspring, I have to say, N.J. Walters has it all packed in tight as a clam in a shell!
I received this copy from Entangled Publishing, LLC in exchange for my honest review.
