Leon is an anomaly, born to a family of hunters who believe all shifters need to die. When his family goes too far and uses a young dragon shifter as bait, Leon is forced to make the greatest mistake…or best decision of his life. Saved by an Alpha dragon, Leon wonders if Rashik is his captor or the one man he’s been searching for all his life.
Dragon King Rashik has been on the search for a stolen hatchling. He never expected to find a tasty and defiant human with steel in his spine. Humans hunt his kind for sport, yet Rashik can’t deny his attraction. Leon might be different but claiming the human could shift the balance in his clan.
Regardless of the consequences, Rashik is king for a reason. Once he sets his sights on Leon, Rashik will do anything to claim him.
“I can smell your arousal, human. See your dick straining against your jeans. You think you’re flawed because you don’t think the same way your old tribe did, because you desire me.”
“I don’t desire you.” Once the words left his lips, Leon knew they were a lie.
Rashik laughed. How could the sound be seductive, music to Leon’s ears? If Rashik wasn’t a dangerous predator and didn’t hold Leon and the life of his baby dragon in his hands, Leon would certainly be attracted to the man.
He’s my enemy. I can’t afford to fall for him. There’s too much at stake.
He kept repeating the mantra in his head. If he drilled those words, he could cover the truth up. It worked in the past. But was Rashik his enemy? His own family would shoot him in the head for helping one baby dragon escape, for hindering their mission. Rashik had given him a chance. To be fair, the part about having his eyes torn out wasn’t exactly something he looked forward to. But this deal gave Leon a new reason to live.
“Liar.” Rashik flung that single word out with such confidence, it made Leon quietly seethe.
Rashik’s pupils changed from green to yellow.
Leon winced, expecting a blow, the feel of fangs on his neck, ready to rip his throat apart. Would he die before he could help the dragon baby? He didn’t even know her name.
Rashik didn’t do any of those things. He did something worse. Angling Leon’s face for a kiss, the dragon Alpha went in for the kill, pulling their lips together. The kiss was rough, insistent, and utterly mind-blowing. Leon completely melted. He knew he should keep his hands still, but once he touched hard golden skin, he couldn’t stop.
No other man had ever kissed Leon like this or sparked something so fierce and passionate inside him.
Just as Rashik initiated the unexpected kiss, the dragon shifter ended it, leaving Leon wanting.
“This is going to be an interesting week, little human.”
