The heroine: Olivia – a CIA agent who is tasked with being one of the women who agree to go to the Zorahn planet in exchange for a cure for cancer on earth. However, the spaceship she is on crashes on a Draekon prison planet and her leg is broken badly, the bone breaking through the skin.
The Heroes: Zunnix & Liorax – a pair of Draekons that shift to dragons as soon as they see Olivia. Liorax was highborn on his home planet and was devastated when his bond mate left him for his father because all she wanted was power. Zunnix was midborn on his home planet and wants the power he would get with a Draekon mate, since then he would be able to shift to a Dragon at will.
The Story: The men are all on the prison planet because they carry the Draekon gene and were determined to be too dangerous to stay on their own planet, but really because those in charge feared people with more power than them. The Draekon that the girls end up with are not a cohesive community, with each male being out for themselves.
Zunnix and Liorax aren’t the only Draekon pair that shifted when they first saw Olivia. Another pair did as well and Dariux, the de facto leader of the group, decides that both pairs will woo Olivia for six months at which time she will decide who to mate with or whether she wants neither pair.
I enjoyed the story and the supporting characters. There are some things that made no sense to me at all. Like the fact that Olivia is a CIA Spy and uses the fact that she has a double D chest to use those and a ditzy girl persona as a cover when it makes absolutely no sense to do it. Firstly because they have crashed on a prison planet which there is no way off of, so why not just come clean and be herself, since her mission is over.
Olivia is concerned about some missing women, who went looking for food after the ship crashed and never returned. But instead of just telling the Draekon that there were other women that may be out there and ask for help, she acts like a flighty woman who only wants to go back to the ship to get her luggage and her pretty clothes. It just made no sense to me. But other than that I really enjoyed this story.
This book is told from multiple points of view by Misty Dawn, Ry Forest, and Jasper Woodcock. They did a good job and I very much enjoyed having three narrators though it was told in dual narration, where the person whose point of view the chapter is in, does all the voices within that chapter, whether male or female.
