For centuries, the immortals knows as the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands, risk his life for the dragons within – and resist the temptations of human love…

Jane Holden has never considered herself beautiful. But when the impossibly handsome Banan casts his gaze upon her, smouldering with sensuality, she feels like the sexiest woman on earth. Banan, however, is a man on a mission. He refuses to succumb to this modern woman’s charms – or his own desires. Two of his warrior brethren have already surrendered to forbidden love. But as the danger closes in, Banan realises that he needs to possess Jane – mind, body, and soul. For she is more than his match. She is his destiny…

My thoughts

I’ve got to say that this has been one of my favourite novella so far in this series. Like all of Grants other books they’re always very much action packed. But I found this one in particular to be rife with suspense and action that takes the readers for a ride. But I would have liked to have more of the Dragon methodology to play out a little more than what was in the books. I do love the scenes of the dragons flying in the skies and their transformations.

I really liked Branan and Jane as a couple, felt they were just right for each other. The love story between Banan and Jane was very engaging and felt realistic. I think up until now Banan has been my favourite Dragon, I felt that he was very down-to-earth and easily relatable than most of the other dragons that I’ve read. With that the relationship between him and Jane felt like they gradually gravitated to each other which made the story much more realistic and smoother. Happy reading!
