Why I read this book: I’m enjoying this series.
Enemies aren’t supposed to fall in love—even if they’re fated mates…right?
Dimitri is a Black Caste Dragon and the head enforcer to his circle. He’s always longed for a mate but settled for physical intimacy instead. When he discovers that his fated mate is also the man who saved the enemy of Dragons, Dimitri is devastated and sees his chance at love slipping away forever. How can he bond with his enemy?
Gavin, son of the Fae King and a witch of the Ancient Times, is a powerful mage not to be trifled with. He longs for a peaceful life but has a duty to protect Harper, a powerful—and crazy—witch. Gavin will have to make a heartbreaking decision…. Stay faithful to his duty to the witch…or bond with his mate.
Can these two unlikely mates find love together? Will their pasts and secrets become too much and drive them apart? What consequences will arise from forging a forbidden bond?
We met Gavin previously in this series when he saved Harper – the powerful witch determined to steal power from the dragons. Gavin did what he thought was best, but it put him on a collision course with the man the fates decided was to be his mate. A dragon, no less.
Dmitri was stunned to discover his fated was the savior of the vile witch. He doesn’t want to go against his king, but his heart is telling him to accept his fate, claim the mage, and deal with the fallout after they’ve bonded.
This was an enjoyable addition to the series and I enjoyed the conflict – both internal and external – within the story. As always, Aaron Ross gave a wonderful performance and I can’t wait for the next one.
