Harlequin Nocturne, Sep 1 2015, $5.75
Unlike his older brothers Braeden (see Dragon’s Lair) and Cameron (see Dragon’s Curse) who embraced their changeling wizard status, twentyish Sean Drake only wanted to be an ordinary human. However, one year ago, reality changed Sean’s hopes when he shifted into a dragon for the first time. Now he considers returning to his family Dragon Lair after years away.
In a bar in the Detroit area, Sean’s inner dragon marks Caitlin St. George as his. Though confused by their attraction they share a one night stand before going their separate ways. Pregnant, Caitlin’s parents plan to give the baby away and marry her to a man who will control her worst urges. When Nathan the wizard kidnaps their infant, a desperate Caitlin informs Sean that he sired a child who was abducted. Avoiding Caitlin the dragon-slayer for distracting obvious reasons, Sean the dragon pursues Nathan in order to rescue his offspring and slay the abductor.
The third Drake romantic urban fantasy is a suspenseful super finish to the trilogy starring in this one the ultimate star-crossed lovers (her DNA demands fighting and slaying dragons like him and his to flight from her). Lynn world once again seems real especially the Drake family tree, but it is the protagonists who make this a winner as natural enemies united by their save their baby quest and love.
