Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Tamara – a graphic designer looking for a job in a tough industry. She was living hand to mouth and not very well. In the past she had been accused of lying, cheating and stealing from her lying previous employer/unofficial partner (and jilted ex boyfriend) and employers didn’t give her the time to prove that she was not guilty of those things. She was currently working at a restaurant that was not busy enough to put her on full time. She will not make her rent the next month when the vampire dating agency she signed up for selects her for a new program dating shifters. She planned to stay the week, get paid her stipend for that week and leave with enough money to pay her rent.
The Heroes: Thunder – He is a dragon shifter and the Air King. He had bad luck in the last hunt. He had ended up with a gold digger who wanted nothing more than the status of being a queen, diamonds, jewels, clothes and cars. He wanted a true mate, someone who loved him and would give him heirs.
The Story: Tamara doesn’t plan on falling in love or staying for longer than a week or two when she finds herself in the mountains running in a hunt for a dragon shifter to find her and claim her. She wanted to be clear to them that she was not in it for long term, even though she said in her interview that she was keen on mating a shifter.
Like the last book, this was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narrators were Stella Bloom and Troy Duran. Troy is my favorite narrator with a deep and sexy voice. Stella has an emotive and feminine voice and she does a great job with everything she does. I liked the characters, this series has had some terrific characters.
Thunder was a bit over the top in the last book. He wanted a human female so bad and wasn’t afraid to take what he wanted and didn’t want to wait to get to know her before jumping into bed with her. This time he thought he would play things differently especially when he saw that Tamara was a bit jumpy. He promised to win her heart before he claimed her. However, he doesn’t get the chance when a crazy dragon shifter breaks the rules of the hunt and changes to his dragon and flies off with Tamara. I really love this series and plan to listen to more of this series and more from this author.
