She thought she’d put her past behind her…
Local artist Keva might be human, but she knows about the things that go bump in the night. Years ago, a dragon shifter saved her from certain death. Ever since, she’s lived in his clan’s territory and put her life back together. But the feeling of security is only an illusion, because her past has come back to haunt her. A past with claws and fangs, demanding blood.
He’ll do whatever it takes to defend his mate…
Dagen has finally met his mate—except he insults her the first time they meet. He’s not too proud to grovel to get back into her good graces. But when a threat from her past emerges, he realizes that he’ll do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means dying—or losing her forever.
I started this new year off with a DNF (not this book!), so I wanted something to cleanse my palate, so to speak. I’m so glad I picked this one!
This novella is part of Katie Reus’ Darkness series, but don’t let the fact that it’s number 8 in the series put you off. It can absolutely be read as a stand-alone.
Keva has a past with a wolf shifter. A bad past. She’d like to leave him there. But he’s more than just a bad memory, and 4 years after settling down in dragon territory, he’s coming back to haunt her.
For Dagen, a chance meeting in an elevator has his dragon fighting to force him to claim his mate. But how? She’s skittish and he’s just accidentally insulted her.
With her past closing in, will she let Dagen help her?
This book was exactly what I needed. I loved Keva, I loved Dagen, and I loved their story. I was so into this one, that I think I’ll try to catch up in the series. Being that it was a novella, obviously everything was very fast-paced, but Katie Reus is good at writing novellas, so it felt complete. I’ve read a few in this series already, and I’d forgotten how much I like this author’s paranormal romances. Especially her dragons.
If you’d like a quick, sexy, and dragon-y read, grab this one!
Feel free to rec me any of your favorite dragons in the comments!
