Now that she has her freedom, she’s not giving it up.

Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.

Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.

Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all.

Dragon shifters? Yes please!

Keelin has spent her entire existence sheltered by her family, and then spent many centuries in forced hibernation. Once she awoke, she decided she wanted to see the world. She moved down to Biloxi with friends of her brother, and got a job.

Bran is now alpha of his people, but he isn’t happy about it. However, he plans on doing his best, even if he has to step out for a while to do a favor for the government. He doesn’t know that this favor, this job,  will take him near Keelin. But he has known Keelin is his mate since he met her. Too bad she doesn’t want a mate.

The mystery was intriguing, the characters were wonderful, but I do feel like reading the previous 2 books would have helped with understanding Keelin better, and how sheltered she was. And maybe why she was so dead-set against having a mate and her freedom.

This book definitely made me want to read the others though, and I absolutely recommend this book and series, to anyone who wants a sexy and intense PNR.
