Toni Giovanni is on a job that seems to be just a bit too easy. But, it’s worth 2 million dollars, so here she is, hiding in the shadows, waiting for everyone to leave so she can pick up a certain artifact. She is also getting a good eyeful of a very delicious archaeologist Dr. Ben Davis. You would probably call her a thief, but she would say she is in the high-risk recovery business. She doesn’t realize that the artifact she is about to pick up will change her whole life. It will bind her to a dragon called Amethyst. It will have her fleeing for her life and the gorgeous Dr. Ben Davis is going to be useful to both Toni and the dragon. There is also a prophecy that says dragons will cause the end of the world, and Toni is not the only dragon.
First of all I am a big fan of L Shannon. Secondly, I am a big fan of dragon shifter books. And thirdly, this talented author has written a dragon shifter book that I found totally different and totally exciting and I did not want it to end. I loved Toni from the beginning. She is sassy, single-minded and very insecure of herself. I loved Dr. Ben too. He is a sexy, handsome geek who is at first more interested in the artifact and the dragons than he is in Toni, but that soon changes. His reaction to the dragon in Toni, and all the consequent events and happenings is something he almost revels in. He is just what Toni and Amethyst needs. They both experience and enjoy the dragon fire, their love scenes fairly sizzled! The only thing wrong with this story is that it stops at a cliff-hanger and now I can hardly wait for the next book!
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
