Researcher Angelica Hernandez finds a disturbing shift in the dormant Aguilera Volcano. She desperately requires additional resources and money to investigate the highly unusual phenomenon, and the only person willing to help is the arrogant businessman who interrupted her class.
Dragon shifter Ti Anda discovers Ange's tantalizing scent during an informal visit to the university. He offers to sponsor Ange's research mission, and even volunteers to help with her fieldwork. Ti's reasons are personal—his dragon has claimed the woman and the volcano as his own.
When saboteurs threaten Ange and her project, Ti's protective instincts reveal a truth that Ange is unwilling to believe. Ti will have to convince her that his unique ability to shapeshift doesn't change anything between them—or risk losing the woman who belongs in his life.
