Ha. I'm a detective. Why would I need help from an exotic dancer on a case that involves dark magic? We're searching for demons, not dollars.

Lucas is persistent, as if he’s burned his brain flying too close to the sun.

But I don't need this scaly shifter's help solving crimes. Or his all-too-personal attention.

Even if he almost entrances me while he dances by rolling his amazingly chiseled abs...

Such fine abs.

No, focus. Demons are a bigger threat than my dry spell.

So whatever he's offering, is a big, fat nope.

Available at Amazon.

Zoe is a detective, reporting to the Salem Supernatural Network, where she gets her assignments. When she follows a demon into a club, she discovers that it favors exotic male dancers. Nova is Zoe’s partner in the investigation and knows one of the dancers: Lucas.

When it’s Lucas’ turn to dance, he dances solely for Zoe, and at one of these moments, his ‘inner self’ recognizes his mate. Lucas is a Dragon Shifter.

The fact that he helps Zoe fight the demons and has her back doesn’t mean that Zoe, the elf, accepts herself as Lucas’ mate.

They both are cautious and don’t welcome love in their lives flippantly. While investigating the demons, they are carefully going on a few dates, always dancing around love, acknowledging the attraction, playing with the fire, but not ready yet to welcome the other one as a partner.

Lucas grows a lot during that story. In the beginning, it seems very much; he’s something like an exotic dancer with barely any common sense, witty but emotionally disconnected. While the story develops, so does Lucas. He opens up for Zoe, and the reader can see that there’s much more to him than being a good dancer. He canfeel deep emotions.

Zoe, to me, seems to miss a lot of Lucas’ charm. But towards the end, I had to see she belonged to the story and Lucas.

I haven’t had the chance to read the first two books in the trilogy, and it seems to me I missed quite a bit. It would have been easier if I had read the entire trilogy. Yes, the book stands its ground, and I like it a lot. But there is more to the series, and I would have found my way around the characters a bit easier if I had known the other books.

However, I can recommend Dancing With My Elf to every paranormal fantasy lover. It’s an entertaining and witty read with exciting characters, a fun story plot, and a cute romance.
