A jaded warrior who doesn't want to get involved and an irresistible she-dragon on the run.
For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.
Novice dragon, Laura Sampao always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. But when she inherits a family heirloom, her life changes forever. Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. And that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.
Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe. Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.
