Henry “Hank” Lennox was the last of his family of dragon shifters, and heir to the crumbling Blackstone empire. In order to protect his people and his legacy, he decides on the unthinkable: buy himself a wife to produce the next generation and secure the future of his family. It was a purely business transaction, so he never thought the bride he meets on his wedding day could also be his mate.
Riva Sinclair would do anything to save her father and their family business, even going into an arranged marriage with a dragon shifter. It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience, a contract that stated she was bought and paid for. Still, she never expected to be so attracted to her husband, and the sky-high walls she put up to protect her heart are starting to crumble.
The same circumstances that brought to them together are about to tear them apart. Can they learn to trust each other or will their pasts destroy the fragile feelings that are only starting to bloom?
This is a prequel to a new shifter series by Alicia Montgomery and as you can tell from the title it’s not about wolves.
Hank Lennox is just as the title says the last dragon in a town founded by his ancestor. The town of Blackstone is special in that all shifters are welcome and the Lennox Corporation that mines the second hardest material in the world Blackstone. The Lennox Corporation also employs shifters and pays for everything the town has from schools, to the town’s infrastructure.
As the last dragon Hank needs a wife and since he isn’t dating anyone and everyone knows that dragons aren’t like other shifters and have one true mate, he decides to acquire one who’s father needs help.
Riva Sinclair comes home to find her fiancé has damaged her family’s company, is wanted by the FBI, and has ran off.
The only way to save the company is be agreeing to marry and give a heir to Hank.
Riva finds herself married to a grouchy dragon with a *itchy sister in law and living in a run down castle. When the two of them start communicating they realize they actually like each other, maybe even love each other, and Hank even realizes that the myths about dragons not having a real mate aren’t true, because Riva is his.
This story does it’s job of setting the storyline for Montgomery’s new series. A series that is going to be a mix of shifters is awesome and I can’t wait for it.
