Welcome to the dangerous world of Qurilixen where dragon-shifters and cat-shifters rule as fiercely as they love.
Dragon shifter prince Kyran and his people are gravely in need of mates. Their planet’s female shifters are dying out, so they look to Earth for new women. Vivacious Eve catches Kyran’s eye — but claiming her will be harder than he anticipated…
Dragon-shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates—so much so they’re taking matters into their own hands. What better place to find a mate than Earth? After all, dragon-shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself.
While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he’s ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock ’n’ roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

About the Captured by a Dragon-Shifter Series
Welcome to the dangerous world of Qurilixen where dragon-shifters and cat-shifters rule as fiercely as they love. They might have escaped human persecution long ago to live on their own terms, but now must return to Earth to ensure their survival.
For Qurilixen Fans
A modern day prequel series installment to those first books (Dragon Lords & Lords of the Var®), taking place long before the princes you know and love ever found their mates, long before The Dragon’s Queen, in a time when the dragon-shifters and cat-shifters actually—wait for it—liked each other and hung out as friends. They also don’t have Galaxy Brides to bring them women. What they do have is the old portal that they used to escape Earth. There’s no one left to marry on the planet and things are starting to get desperate. This series can be read as a standalone.

Kyran’s search for a mate.
Prince Kyran’s search for a mate brings him to earth and to Eve. This is a fun fast read with a clueless alien who has no doubts about his superiority and truly believes he’s a fabulous catch. Eve is out of her element in this new world but that doesn’t mean she’s going along with his plan. He has problems and she’s just the woman to show him the error of his ways.
Fun, fast read
I enjoyed this book because I liked the two main characters so much. Eve was well written and relatable. Eve is a woman who devoted her life to her love of music and put everything she had into it. Kyran's confusion over earth words and customs was so endearing and funny and added so much to the story. The clothing the four princes wore for their first trip to earth was a hoot! My only wish for this book was that it was longer, I could happily have read more of Kyran and Eve. If you like funny, steamy fantasy, and are a fan of the Qurilixen world, you'll love this story.
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Like all the books by Michelle M. Pillow, this was a great book. I love how Kyran used television to understand Earth. It was funny when the king thought Kyran hit Eve so he tried to protect her. The fact they took everything literally was cool. Very interesting book.
