She just wants answers to a mystery.
He thinks she's the key to ending his exile in her world.
Love was never supposed to enter the equation…
It's in her friend's rare books shop that Briana Wright first sees Taron Hildebrand, a too-gorgeous-to-be-real twenty-something Englishman dressed for a night at the opera rather than an obscure shop in midtown. Already unnerved by his uncanny, orange-tinted eyes, her alarm skyrockets with Taron's powerful reaction to seeing the old hand-bound book she is carrying that nearly has her racing to the exit. A find in her recently deceased grandmother's collection, it was written in a strange alphabet that Briana is dying to decipher. No way is she going to sell it, even when Taron offers her an obscene amount of money.
However, when Taron confesses that he thinks the book may be an old family heirloom he's been trying to locate for years and professes to be able to read it, Briana never imagines losing her life could be the cost of learning its secrets. An enemy is hunting Taron for the precious item he carries, and to secure her help, Taron will have to come clean about his dragon shifter identity, his true reason for wanting her book, and his suspicions of Briana's own heritage if he has any hope of finding his way home again in a time when his people need the item he is protecting the most.
Their hearts were never supposed to be part of their deal…
Contains mature content, language, and hot dragon shifters.
This is a complete story with a HEA.
