Why I read this book: I enjoyed book 1.
Vampire Second Devin Davis has met his beloved. Raised in a family filled with fighting, Devin never wanted to meet his mate and potentially suffer the same fate. Roarke is gorgeous, sexy as sin, and pushes all of Devin’s buttons. But he’s a dragon…a dragon who can get his male mate pregnant.
Dragon Duke Roarke MacNair has always longed to meet his fated mate. He desires someone who would stand by him, protect him, and take charge in the bedroom. Someone like Vampire Second Devin Davis. Only Devin seems to have reservations. Roarke has been patient with his fated mate, but time might not be on their side….
Roarke’s father wants him to mate with a neighboring Dragon Circle Leader. Perhaps fate made a mistake. Can Devin put aside his past for a chance at love? Will Roarke be able to stand up to his domineering father? Can love really win against all odds?
I’m always intrigued by the concept of fated mates. Ok, so there’s one person you’re destined to be with forever. Cool. A dragon and a vampire? Ok, didn’t see that coming. And, in this world, the dragon can make the vampire pregnant? Wow.
The author is so creative in the world they’ve created and I’ve become invested in the characters. I wanted Devin and Roarke to find their happy ending, even if that seemed in doubt.
Aaron Ross did a great job of narrating and I especially liked his Scottish accent. Can’t wait for more of these books.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but C.K. has a love for soul mates, true love, and happily ever after. Of course, he can’t let his characters get their happy ending too easily; they have to suffer first. He’s inspired by day to day life and loves transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary in his stories.
C.K. resides in small town Florida near where he grew up. He has a large, crazy family, a prissy Chihuahua, and two mischievous cats that love each other one moment and hate each other the next–there’s no in between.
