Dragon’s Heat – City Dragon’s Book 1
Jon Erskine had made a good life for himself as one of the top Forensic Accounts and Systems Analysts in the country. He doesn’t mind working with paranormal clients – after all, he’s a shifter himself. However, he could do without all the slurs and derogatory comments. Not all shifters are wolves, bears and other predators. Still, his expertise and reputation is solid and Jon is more than capable of holding his own. That is until Dirk Hollingsworth runs from his office.
Dirk is running out of time. He has to find out who’s been stealing from his company before his father turns up for his wedding in three weeks’ time. Acting on the recommendation of a friend, Dirk turns to Jon, or at least thinks about it. That is, until he catches the man’s scent in the doorway of his office and does a runner. Not the proudest moment for one of the proudest of all shifters, but Dirk has a responsibility to his clan and catching the tantalizing scent of a dog isn’t going to change anything. Or so he thinks.
Family betrayals, a strong-willed dragon spirit; all things collide as Jon and Dirk struggle to find common ground. Calling off the wedding is easy; staying alive might be that much harder. M/M, graphic content. Suitable ages 18+
Jon Erskine is a forensic accountant, the best in the country. Shifter dog himself, he works with other shifters and species, even if some have a prejudice against his kind, Jon doesn’t care.
Dirk Hollingsworth is a multi-billionaire dragon shifter. He runs a multi-national, and he’s the chief of his clan here in the USA. When he realizes someone is stealing his company, he hires the best accountant to track the money. But When Dirk catches Jon’s scent he refuses to meet the man and runs away.
What’s supposed to be simple and natural when 2 fated mate meet, becomes a life-threatening menace.
It was a sweet pleasurable book.
Dirk is, at first, a real asshole with Jon. First, he refuses to mate with a dog. Second, he refuses to be with a man since he considers himself straight. And third, he insults his dragon. Yep, a real asshole, but he can’t fight against fate, and when he admits that he needs Jon more than anything, he’s ready to move a mountain and fight anyone for his mate. I love it.
Jon is smart, calm and funny. He is confident in his capacity even if he doubts of Dirk intentions at first. After being rejected, he can’t easily believe that Dirk has changed his mind.
The story and the plot are good and simple. Not really original but well written, so it works for me.
What I really love about this book, is the dragons. As Dragon Shifters, they have the ability to walk dream with their other half, and talk with them.
Their dragon part isn’t silenced, but really present, and he’s a character by itself, and it’s the thing that pleases me the most and makes this book different from another shifter books.
3.5 OptimuMM’s for the dragon and his most precious jewel.
