The New York Times bestselling author “brings back her irresistibly humorous, snarky, action packed, violent and outrageously larger than life dragons” (Smexy Books).
HE SAYS . . .
I, Aidan the Divine, am, well divine. My name was given to me by the Dragon Queen herself! I’m a delight! Cheerful. Charming. And a mighty warrior who is extremely handsome with a very large and well-hidden hoard of gold. I am also royal born, despite the fact that most in my family are horrendous beings that don’t deserve to live. And yet, Branwen the Awful—a low-born, no less—either tells me to shut up or, worse, ignores me completely.
SHE SAYS . . .
I’ll admit, I ignore Aidan the Divine because it annoys him. A lot. But, we have so much to do right now, I can’t worry about why he keeps looking at me like he’s thinking about kissing me. We have our nations to save and no time for such bloody foolishness . . . no matter how good Aidan looks or how long his spiked tail is. Because before this war destroys everything we love, we’ll have to face our enemies together. But if we make it out alive, who knows what the future will hold . . .

Fans of Aiken's Dragon Kin romantic fantasy series will not be disappointed by this entertaining 10th installment (after Feel the Burn), featuring wildly independent Branwen the Awful and the delicious Aidan the Divine. For years, war has raged between the forces of Annwyl the Bloody, human queen of the Southlands, and the Zealots, followers of the god Chramnesind. The final confrontation is quickly approaching, and Queen Annwyl is missing, presumed dead. Branwen, a devoted soldier and member of the deadly Cadwaladr clan of dragons, and Aiden, a royal member of the dragon queen's personal guard, are sent with several others to provide protection for Keita, a dragon princess, as she travels to the Eastlands seeking an alliance. What follows is a tale filled with Aiken's trademark over-the-top humor, outrageous situations, and exhilarating action scenes. The romance in this paranormal fantasy is on the light side, a bit of gilding on the otherwise epic tale of political intrigue, hard drinking, and family members who prize one another above all else.
