With dragons like him, who needs enemies?
Real scholars know that supernatural beings don't exist. But the moment I meet Archer Andras of the Storm Dragons, all my academic training goes out the window. Thanks to Mr. Tall, Dark, And Infuriating, I'm learning that I really should worry about those things that go bump in the night. . . and that dragons like Archer are 100 percent pure trouble.
Now I'm caught in the middle of a war. On one side is Archer. On the other is his twin brother. And I am the key to translating an ancient text that could bring balance-or deadly ruin-to our world. But none of that is as dangerous as the seriously sexy sparks between Archer and me. He's too tempting to be real. Too gorgeous to trust. And when it comes to dragons, there's no smoke without deadly fire.
Includes the novel WOLF'S MATE by Celia Kyle: When Abby Carter is threatened by an anti-shifter organization, werewolf shifter Declan Reed will have to convince her that there's no safer place in the world than in the arms of a big bad werewolf.
MacAlister's second Dragon Hunter paranormal (after Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter) contains elements of humor but suffers from shallow characterization and a wafer-thin plot. Thaisa, a meek academic in her early 30s, is quite content to do odd jobs in a California curiosities shop. One night, she finds two men there after closing, bent on acquiring part of an old manuscript. The men, cousins Archer and Miles, reveal to her that dragons and dragon shape-shifters really exist. Archer, leader of the storm dragons, is at war with his twin brother Hunter's shadow dragons. Dragons of both tribes are dying, so the race is on to find a medallion that will supposedly end the contention. In a heartbeat, Thaisa leaps into Archer's arms, flings her self-esteem issues to the wind, and becomes an action heroine. MacAlister includes plenty of her trademark humor and over-the-top situations, but the convoluted, sometimes clich d story lacks cohesion and solid character development, making it confusing for both fans and newcomers. (This edition includes a bonus novel by Celia Kyle not seen by PW.)
