Teagan O’Shea is a rare female dragon-shifter leader. While her Irish clan has a tradition of female leaders, they have had to hide behind a public male face for centuries to keep the other clans from viewing them as weaker and attacking. When the truth leaks, Teagan is faced with a choice—hand over the leadership to a male or invite the challengers to a leadership trial and earn her place. Out to prove having a penis isn’t required to be a leader, she picks the latter.
Aaron Caruso is sent to Ireland under the guise of repairing relations between two clans on the isle of Ireland. However, upon arrival he learns the truth. Determined to secure Teagan’s place so he can escape her alluring eyes and addicting personality, he busies himself with helping her any way he can. A female used him once and he’s not about to go through that again, no matter how much the Irish female tempts him.
As the pair work together on preparations for the leadership trial, both Aaron and Teagan start to see each other in a new light. Both have their own self-imposed loneliness and yearn for something they can’t have. Can Aaron and Teagan not only change tradition but also open their hearts? Or will they each be doomed to live alone to fight their inner battles?
Aiding the Dragon
Wonderful twist to have a clever female clan leader send Aaron Caruso on a journey of both self discovery as well as healing. Teagan is everything a strong female leader should be & her bravery & determination to retain her right to lead in spite of the opposition from elder males is both inspiring & enjoyable.
absolutely love this book. I like seeing strong independent heroine and Teagan definitely didn't disappoint. I love her nonsense attitude and the fact that she stood ground at all time and she made sure that she got the respect she deserves it made me like her even more. I didn't care much for Aaron Caruso in the beginning but I'm glad that he ended changing my mind in the end and everyone got the HEA that they deserve. I'm super excited and definitely looking forward to reading Brenna & Killian story something tell me that we're going to be on a wild ride with that one. I voluntarily read and review this ARC I haven't been compensated in any way.
