Publisher Description

She just wants answers to a mystery.
He thinks she's the key to ending his exile in her world.
Love was never supposed to enter the equation…

It's in her friend's rare books shop that Briana Wright first sees Taron Hildebrand, a too-gorgeous-to-be-real twenty-something Englishman dressed for a night at the opera rather than an obscure shop in midtown. Already unnerved by his uncanny, orange-tinted eyes, her alarm skyrockets with Taron's powerful reaction to seeing the old hand-bound book she is carrying that nearly has her racing to the exit. A find in her recently deceased grandmother's collection, it was written in a strange alphabet that Briana is dying to decipher. No way is she going to sell it, even when Taron offers her an obscene amount of money.

However, when Taron confesses that he thinks the book may be an old family heirloom he's been trying to locate for years and professes to be able to read it, Briana never imagines losing her life could be the cost of learning its secrets. An enemy is hunting Taron for the precious item he carries, and to secure her help, Taron will have to come clean about his dragon shifter identity, his true reason for wanting her book, and his suspicions of Briana's own heritage if he has any hope of finding his way home again in a time when his people need the item he is protecting the most.

Their hearts were never supposed to be part of their deal…

Contains mature content, language, and hot dragon shifters.
This is a complete story with a HEA.

Dragon takes his human/witch to his world

Really enjoyed reading this book. Briana finds an old book in her grandmother's collection that she wasn't aware of. While going over the book Taron comes into the store to view another book and spots Briana and her book. She refuses to sell it and he leaves. He comes back with proof that it is a family heirloom of his. Briana is able to get the skeleton key from the book and they are off to his world. Great twists and turns. Can't wait to read more about this world and the books many travels!

Where Sleeping Dragons Lie ~ Good Book if Free

I found this book to be good in drawing the reader into this dragon reality with a fast paced beginning. The story moved quickly as the plot unfolded.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, I felt the characters could have been more developed giving the book a much richer story. The book also seemed to rush the ending with an assumed happy ending that could have been fulfilling and satisfying. Finally, while there weren’t many, I found places of missing words and the occasional misspelled word.

The book captures your attention and transports you to a whole new world. For the length of this book it has better details than most longer books. Ending even makes you happy. Totally recommend.
