A Being(s) in Love Story
In the nineteenth century, the dragon Dìzhèn put the small coastal town of Everlasting under her protection. Her family was supposed to carry on the tradition, but all of Dìzhèn the Great’s heirs eventually left rather than live in the shadow of such a powerful dragon.
Only the youngest dragon of the current generation remains: Zarrin, the softhearted disgrace of his family. He might be weak, small, and afraid, but he is determined to show the humans they have not been forgotten… one human in particular. The problem is, Zarrin can barely get that human to talk to him.
It should be a dream come true to have a dragon trying to get his attention. But Joe refuses to bow to Zarrin like everyone else. Yes, Zarrin is sexy, oddly gentle for a dragon, and stares at Joe with a gaze so hot it makes him shiver. But hurt, mistrustful Joe can’t believe Zarrin’s promises that he’s here to stay. Joe doesn’t realize he is the treasure Zarrin has been looking for his whole life, a treasure he once let slip through his fingers out of fear. Now, to win Joe’s trust, Zarrin has to be brave and become as strong as Dìzhèn herself.

Wonderful story, well thought out plotline, memorable characters, intreguing universe. R Cooper's "Beings" series is a delight, and this one is a jewel in that crown.
R. Cooper once more presents us with a wonderful story of love. Zarrin's need to be recognized, and his hope to be accepted and beneficial to the small town he oversees is sweet and frequently had me misty eyed. Joe's slow realization that Zarrin is more than an arrogant dragon is beautiful to watch. The disconnect between a dragon's understanding and a human's is heart-wrenching at times. It builds silent misunderstandings that hurt the relationship, both between Zarrin and Joe, and between Zarrin and his town. Zarrin is such a sweet person, desperate to be a proper dragon while also being true to himself. In the flow the Being(s) Falling in Love series, Treasure for Treasure is a solid addition to the universe. It's great to read more about the exotic dragons. I love seeing their hoards, and knowing that not all treasure is gold. Sometimes, it's a sugar packet, the first sign of a softening from an important person.
