For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.
At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.
The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.
Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
I love Lizzy Ford. I adore the fact that her characters are well-developed and real. Chase surprised me. Most shifters may not accept who they are in the beginning but eventually they come to embrace who they have become. He doesn’t. I can understand the resentment of being something you never wanted to be but Chase just seemed in a permanent state of denial. I think he wasted a lot of time hating who he was and not enough asking questions about what he could be.
Skylar was a character. I understand her not wanting to ask to many questions but I can’t believe she was never more curious. I know I have a hard time not asking questions about anything and everything! The sex and banter between these two was hot and smokin’! Pun intended! Gotta love dragons!!
This is one of those stories and authors that I recommend to everyone. I have liked everything that Lizzy has put out. If you like paranormal and romance, jump on it!
