The Hero: Lucian Smoke – he funded the first openly shifter bar in Seattle where humans and shifters can hook up. Business was good, and he was hoping it would help humans and shifters to get along. It was his job to keep things settled between humans and shifters while Seattle got back on its feet. Lucian’s needs had gone too long since being met. He was a half fae dragon shifter and was over 500 years old. He had a lot of expectations weighing on him.
The heroine: Arabella – she was a human woman, a lawyer, in a dark alley fighting a demon. Though she didn’t know that he was a demon, she just knew he was her clients ex who couldn’t take a hint when things were over. She ended up cracking her head and falling unconscious. She woke up very posh room on a couch. Soon finding out that dragon shifters actually exist.
The Story: Lucian and his two brothers Leksander and Leonidas had been born minutes apart. Though Lucian was the crown prince and needed to pass the crown on to a son. Though Lucian had nightmares of blood and screams when he attempted a sealing with a woman who was not his mate. Dragons usually mated with humans and the female usually died, either in the sealing ceremony or with the birth of their young. He didn’t want to go through that again but needed an heir, to keep the treaty that kept the fae out of the world of humans. Lucian can only create a dragonling with a female who is in love with him and he gets Arabella to help him find one, even knowing it is her that he wants.
I liked the fact that this story was more magical than many other shifter stories. Lucian could conjure clothes for both himself and Arabella, his blood healed Arabella and the dragons have the ability to cloak. I bought this audiobook and started it before finding out that the story of these two is a trilogy so I wasn’t too happy about that. I hate having to buy 3 or more audiobooks, especially when each book is only 5 or 6 hours. I did like the storyline and I love dragon shifters. Though I didn’t like the fact that Lucian was still grieving a past love, I hate that in romance books.
Narrated by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell, this book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. These two have both narrated a lot of books and are very good at sounding like they are talking more than reading. They are great at showing emotions through their narration and I really like both of their voices. Joe has a gravelly sexy voice and Maxine has a clear feminine voice which is very pleasing.
