Desire is the raw material. Lust is the spark?and love will sculpt their destiny.
The Gray Court, Book 3
Akane Russo, one of the Hob's top Blades, can't wait for her current assignment to end. She's been tasked with protecting Shane Dunne from the Malmayne clan's scheme to kidnap him once again. But no one?not even her Seer half?warned her she'd have to protect herself from his heated gaze. Or that her dragon half would find him an irresistible puzzle.
Shane knew his destined bride would never come to him willingly, but she's stuck with him and he plans to use her predicament to his advantage. It's only a matter of time before she succumbs to what they both want. Their Claiming will be beautiful beyond even his wildest imaginings?and his wild, free dragoness will finally see herself as he sees her.
Then his unique, hybrid-borne visions reveal a new danger. The prophecy of the Child of Dunne can only be fulfilled down a path he must travel alone. To a place so dark and dangerous that even his truebond's flame may not be bright enough to lead him home.
Warning: Contains explicit sex, graphic language, a pissed-off dragon assassin and a smart-mouthed Nebraskan farm boy. Bet you can figure out who wins that fight! (Hint: It's not the dragon?)
