Dragon shifter Edra has always lived to serve and protect—in ages past as a knight, and in the modern world as a mytho liaison to the San Francisco PD. Behind the scenes he safeguards the mythos community from scandal—and further human hatred. When the eggs of a rare greater dragon are stolen, Edra must find and return them before the mother razes the city.

Edra’s partner, Jordan, has just been promoted, and he’s on the trail of several stolen mythos artifacts. Together, they track the eggs to a colony of mermaids living in the bay near Alcatraz Island.

But trying to separate a mermaid from her treasure is asking for trouble.

As Edra and Jordan grow closer, they test the bounds of human-mythos relationships. But Jordan isn’t ready to mate for life, and Edra won’t pretend to be human for Jordan’s friends. With the hills on fire and a storm brewing in the bay—and in their bed—something’s got to give.

I want to begin by saying that I did not read the first book in this series but the author did a wonderful job of updating me on what previously happened. Edra Tendric is a dragon shifter whose partner is Jordan Kells a human. Since the collapse of the mytho world of Tariko all the creatures humans once thought only existed in books or nightmares are now living with them side by side.

Edra is the new mytho liaison office working along side Jordan from the San Francisco Police Department. Their newest case is that of stolen dragon eggs which is very serious since this would be the first hatching in centuries. One egg is left but has a large crack in it and may or may not be viable. The male dragon is sitting on the egg even though he is badly injured and there is fire all around the nest and him. Edra has to find a way to get the male to move and join the female a feat that is easier said then done. It takes a lot of convincing before both egg and male are moved to safety.

The eggs are only one of the things that have gone missing from other mythos and the stolen items find themselves with the mermaids. Of course in this book there is no doubt that these mermaids are not what Disney dreamed of since they eat not only fish but humans. They are nasty and dangerous and do not return items that belong to them. There is no doubt that the mermaids themselves cannot steal these items since leaving the water is not something they are able to do so there is an accomplise and he must be found.

The relationship between Edra and Jordan is a huge part of this story, will they or wont they, will they mate, will they have sex will Jordan get over his fear of what mating a mytho could cost him and the fact that dragons mate for life and Edra fears that Jordan wants him because he is addicted to the drug Bliss. Unfortunately so much of the story revolved around the two men and as much as they wanted each other I did not think it had anything to do with love, it had to do with another four letter word, lust.

This book was chock full of mythological creatures, satyres, dragons, shifters, vampires, merfolk and more in addition to solving a mystery but I found the book to be slow moving at times and could not really connect with the two main characters. I did not love this book but I did not hate it and at times found it to be very interesting.
