Story Overview:
The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep. He’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.

But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is just a bonus.

Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And just what the hell is going on down in the basement at night?

Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere...

My Review:
This book was good for a short entertaining little read. In this world, dragons go through heat every three years. When they go into heat, they change into a dragon when the sun goes down and their instincts are much higher, especially their sexual ones, than normal. Stig has learned how to live with this. He has a cell in his basement with super-strong, timer activated handcuffs that keep him under control when he's in dragon form. What he doesn't count on is Cora. 

He's always been attracted to Cora, but she's the younger sister of one of his friends who died in combat, so she's off-limits. She shows up the second day of his heat and she's in trouble and in danger, with no where else to go. He tries to warn her away from the basement, but that doesn't work so well.  You would think once she knows his secret that the story will follow a normal progression, but there were a couple of snags to that. 

This book was short and definitely entertaining. There weren't any real surprises to it, but I liked the introduction to this world and think I will continue to follow the series for when I just want a fast, fun, sexy escape for a couple of hours. It was light and definitely kept my interest. Stig is part of a dragon military force who are being hunted. We got to meet a few others of these dragon shifters and I look forward to reading more of their stories. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
