The Department of Dragon Affairs sends Dr. Kiyana Barnes to Lochguard with a group of human women open to having dragon mates. She’s supposed to help them adjust to being around dragon-shifters while also observing how the clan works on a day-to-day basis. She most definitely isn’t supposed to notice how one look from a certain dragonman teacher sets her skin on fire, let alone ask him to kiss her in a weak moment, given her past.
Alistair Boyd spends most of his time in the clan’s archives, searching for a solution to fulfill the vow he made to himself three years ago. However, when his clan leader orders him to educate the latest group of humans to come to Lochguard, he has no choice but to cut back and do his clan duty. One of the females catches his eye, but he tries to resist her. After all, he made an important vow. One that includes staying away from females until it’s complete.
One weak moment results in a kiss that changes both Kiyana and Alistair’s lives forever. Unfortunately, a clan emergency means keeping Alistair’s dragon silent for more days than he’d like. Will Alistair’s duty to clan end up harming his dragon and pushing away the woman who is his second chance? Or, will he beat the clock to have everything he didn’t know he wanted?
