To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with everything he had to earn his precarious place on the Huracán team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.

Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she finds out, there’s only one man she wants–the one who walks away.

However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera….



Dragons for the win for like EVER! Abigail Owen was a new to me author last year and I instantly fell in love with the Fire Edge series. Next up was Aidan and Sera’s story, the rookie doing everything that he can to input his place within the Enforcers.

In the beginning, things were a bit muddled for me as I was trying to stay on track about what was going on. I probably should have done a quick refresher read of the previous book before diving into this one. Once I found my footing, I was completely hooked and couldn’t put it down. But chasing around a toddler all day had me taking a lot of reading breaks 😉

Watching these two constantly fight their feelings for one another was absolutely killing me. I totally understood their reasons for not giving in, but my goodness, the restraint these two had!

I love that we’re instantly getting into the politics of finding a mate, which shouldn’t even be a thing, but in their world it is. And I have to say that I’m not a fan of what the council is trying to do when it comes to dragon mates. I’m all about that instant connection when it comes to finding their mates and simply that they just know who they’re destined for. The more dragon mates that are slowly starting to pop up, they are taking a stand against the council, which is bound to make things more interesting as we see more books from this series.

With all of that being said, I’ve been loving Abigail’s take on this dragon shifter series. The heroines so far have been so amazing and strong, and I’ve loved them so much. When it comes to Sera, her son is her life even more so after she lost her husband. Her goal is to move far away from the dragon shifters and to just raise her son somewhere far away and alone…and safe.

The constant inner turmoil will literally drive you insane because you just want nothing more than these two to just give in already! But it didn’t stop me from loving these two, I couldn’t get enough of them. I know there were personal obligations that stood inbetween them, but love finally won in the end. And it was a glorious sight!

The suspense and mystery will keep you on your toes. So much happens and I may have shed a few tears by the end because some things were simply bittersweet.

We already get the sense of who is up next in this series and I’ll be eager to get my hands on it ASAP!
