War makes strange bedfellows in this “awesome read . . . the perfect mix of mystery, action, and romance” from the New York Times bestselling author (BTH Reviews).
I, Gaius Domitus, one-eyed rebel dragon king of the Provinces, know better than most that sacrifices must be made, since I have to fight off half my ungrateful family on a regular basis to keep law and order here in my lands. But I never expected to have to consort with a barbarian human woman.
Kachka is beautiful, if you like them fierce—and of course I do. But she keeps complaining about how spoiled and decadent I am, and how a feared Daughter of the Steppes has no time for foolish dragons. I think she likes my eye patch, though. It is quite dashing. With death always at our tails, we take our passion like we take our allies. As they say, love the barbarian you’re with . . .
