Meet some desperate dragons who try desperate means to save their species from extinction An enjoyable read, full of delightful, comical scenes involving a clan of dragons, who are adorable in their own right, but dealing with some very novel situations! Apparently, three brothers (all dragons) will find their true love in each of the three books in the series. It’s a light-hearted read with a serious challenge confronting their species -- extinction. No more female dragons are available to procreate with, the last being killed while shifted form to a red deer. She was Dougal’s mate and until now he grieves her departure. This clan decides to do the unthinkable – to search for a female who will accept them from outside the dragon species. Their experiment seems to bear fruit, when Wynn’s youngest brother struck out into the human village to find his mate. Vika, a lovely red-haired beauty is pregnant with his bairn and lives in a cave with her chosen. What kind of child will she have? Wynn, finds himself attracted to a shape-shifter, who has been a wolf for some time, but grew up as a human before she reaches puberty. Kera, having been injured when Wynn fell from a perch, (probably shoved by Dougal who is always up to tricks) and knocked her into a tree trunk. She is scared when she awakes to find a dragon bending over her. She is coerced into going to the cave with promises of Wynn she will not come to harm. Evan carries her back to the cave where Vika is housed for the duration of her pregnancy. She and Vika hit it off immediately. She finds Evan utterly and completely in love with his mate, which helps put her at her ease. She decides to stay in her human form, although, she heals more slowly that way. She doesn’t want them to know she is a wolf. Of course, Wynn knows this because he saw her shift, but doesn’t mention it. Toal, the toad, is an uncouth man who killed Kera’s wolf mate. It seems he also has past ties with Vika. Kera’s goal? To heal and leave the dragons’s cave to search for this man, exterminate him and return to her wolfpack. But fate has another path for her. If you are partial to dragons, and shape-shifters, as I am, and romance in the Scottish highlands, you will enjoy this fanciful story of strong females, and hopeful dragons who brave the unknown with love and strength in their hearts.
