Overview

A hundred years ago, the high sorcerer of Velensperia launched a swift and deadly attack against the draegans--a race of dragon shapeshifters who'd always lived in harmony with the humans. The draegans were all but destroyed, with the few who remained scattered and in hiding. Now, a group of them have united and begun to fight back. Their leader, Keiran Hareldson, seeks to free his people from the cruel repression the high sorcerer's reign has imposed on them. Gaige Rizik is captain of the sorcerer's High Guard, and known for his lethal ability to hunt down his prey with no remorse. His orders are to infiltrate the draegan rebels' camp, learn their plans, and identify their leader so he can be destroyed. But when Gaige joins the rebels, posing as a human sympathizer to the draegans' cause, he discovers the shapeshifters aren't the bloodthirsty beasts he's been led to believe, and their leader is a passionately captivating man who only wants what's best for his people. Keiran sparks powerful emotions in Gaige, tearing down his walls of steely control, and stirring a longing in him he can't deny. Torn between his duty to the high sorcerer and his growing feelings not only for Keiran, but for the draegan way of life, Gaige knows he's damned no matter which side he chooses. In a world of lies, deception, and dark secrets, one false move will bring destruction to all he's begun to hold dear. With the fate of so many lives on his shoulders, Gaige's only hope is to follow his heart ... and pray it's true enough to save them all.

Read an Excerpt

"Why does Byram hate your people so much?" The question was out before he could think.

"Because we know the truth."

"The truth?"

Keiran leaned in close. One of his hands moved up to cup the back of Gaige's head, while the other slid around his waist. The heat of his breath caressed Gaige's neck, making his pulse roar.

"That we didn't start the war a hundred years ago. He did."

And then the damp heat of Keiran's tongue burrowed into Gaige's ear. His legs went numb. He staggered back a step, glad for the support of the cool rock wall against his back. A low groan escaped him and he buried his hands in Keiran's hair, tugging free the bit of leather holding it, and savoring the soft, thick feel of it sliding through his fingers.

A deep ache throbbing in his groin, Gaige pulled Keiran's mouth toward his and, at long last, tasted what he'd craved since he'd first met this man.

Their mouths and tongues moved together with desperation, as if each had been starving for the other much too long. Keiran tasted of the spicy wine, of earthy passion, and of something powerful and mysterious that filled Gaige's body with a tingling energy. Draegan magick? Gaige had to wonder.

Their bodies notched together perfectly--hard heat pressed to hard heat--and Gaige wasn't surprised to discover that, in spite of their current situation, trapped in a tiny cave with the high sorcerer's troops nearby, Keiran was as turned on as he was.

The draegan pulled away first, but not far. "I've wanted to do that since I first met you," he whispered against Gaige's lips.

"As have I."

"Was it worth the wait?"

Gaige chuckled softly. "You have to ask?"

    A Pleasure to Read

    Romance, epic fantasy adventure, character development & a surprising amount of heart. I'm only sad I have to wait for the 4th book in the series.

    Great M/M Romance and Fantasy

    I really like this entire series and can't wait for the fourth book. So far, the second book is the only one to end with a true cliff-hanger. I like Gaige and Keiran's romance; the two men love each other, not simply lust for each other. They also help each other with doubts and strengths. Most of the secondary characters are also very well drawn. The villian is a little bit too melodramatic, but this comes across as a part of the character rather than the author over-writing the part. I also like the magic system and the world.
