It’s always a bad idea to fall for a hot, mysterious billionaire with a spooky castle.
Especially when you find out he’s a dragon.
Night nurse Andi Ngo was desperate for money to bail her idiot brother out of jail. A one time nursing gig seemed like the perfect deal: lots of cash, no questions asked. Even when her employer turns out to be the notorious billionaire Damian Blackwood, Andi is determined to keep quiet and finish the job.
But when Damian saves her life from a monster, there’s no forgetting what she saw – not his insanely superhero physique; not the hungry way he looks at her, like she’s some priceless treasure to be possessed; and definitely not the fact that he’s got another hidden self; he’s an honest-to-god dragon.
Andi knows the dragon shifter’s secret, and he’s definitely far from pleased.
After a night of monsters and mayhem, he takes her home in his fancy sports car and….asks her for a date.
The expensive, well-tailored suit can’t disguise the fire in his eyes and wildness in his savage smile.
She should say, “no.”
What if she says, “yes?”
Author note: This is the first of a slow burn paranormal romance series featuring a hot dragon shifter hero: heck yes, explicit scenes are in here, but you’ll have to be patient for the HEA to come.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Andi & Damian’s perspectives.
This is book 1 in the Prince of the Other Worlds series. There is a cute prequel, Dragon’s Don’t Date. You don’t need to listen to that to enjoy this, but it’s a fun intro to the MCs.
While there’s several adventures, questions answered, and some very sexy scenes – relationship wise this is a slow burn spanning multiple books. Damian and Andi have a push/pull and can’t get on the same page at the same time. I like that it isn’t always Damian pushing Andi away.
I love how Andi’s experience as a nurse makes her fairly unfazed when she encounters all the paranormal creatures in Damian’s world. I adored the world that Alexander & Lockharte have built along with a strong romantic suspense element. Normally drawn out relationship drama isn’t my thing, but I really love the action adventure element here. It has me captivated and I’m actually looking forward to Damian & Andi taking a bit to finding their HEA.
Lots to enjoy even with a cliffhanger. I’m looking forward to Dragon Destined.
I love Victoria Mei’s performance. She has a wide range of voices, emotions, and personalities. Such a great listen that’s easy to get lost in.
While I own the entire series in ebook, I did receive a copy of the audiobook from Home Cooked Books and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
