What would you sacrifice to protect those you care for?

As a dragon shifter in hiding, Lara Stone wants nothing to do with others of her kind or finding a mate. No way, no how. She's perfectly content to work for a security company, masquerading as a simple mage.

When the leader of all the dragon clans personally requests her as a bodyguard, Lara fears her secret is blown, or worse. What danger could possibly make Rafael Dragoi, the powerful Astarot, seek protection?

Lara Stone is a mage that works as a detective/bodyguard.  Rafael Dragoi is the Astarot-or Alpha-of the Dragon enclave and is being magically attacked.  When their paths meet, secrets long held by Lara are suddenly in danger of being revealed.  This is a very quick read, but it is jam-packed with heated flirting and some hysterical banter.  My favorite thing about this story, that I truly hope are included in the rest of the series, is Lara’s internal dialogue.  This book definitely set a fantastic tone, as well as establishing a great premise with some interesting characters all in less than 100 pages!  I am looking forward to reading more to see what happens, and to hear more of what goes on in Lara’s inner struggles.
