In a world where men can become dragons, Thoren is one of the most powerful. As a shape-shifting Draconi, Thoren wants nothing more than to continue searching for Halfling children, and returning them to Draconia. The last thing he wants or needs is a mate--until he meets Keara, an outcast unaware of the power that lies within her.
Keara doesn't know what to make of Thoren or of the magic he practices. She learned early to keep her magic hidden--her witchy red hair and green eyes are burden enough. When Thoren offers his hand in place of a forced marriage with Lord Simon, Keara jumps at the chance to leave her town behind. But she fears Thoren will shun her when he discovers the truth about her abilities.
Can Thoren convince Keara she is his lifemate, or will her secret talent be the wedge that drives them apart?
