Length: Short Novel
Having lived for many years in the Cauldron, empath Hilendra finds herself drawn into the intrigue surrounding not only the Farfield dragons, but the kingdom. Now she must find a way to protect herself while helping to ensnare the saboteurs trying to weaken their defences. It doesn’t hurt to have the love of a gorgeous mandrac to keep you safe either.
Saaldon had become a mandrac after losing his entire family to invading forces, but still enjoyed spending time in man-form in the Cauldron. Having come to love Hilendra he learns of the “extra” gift that she has and knows she may be in danger from those who would use it and her against their kingdom. To find his love returned makes him even more determined to not only trap the ones sabotaging the dragons, but Hilendra as well.
This story has it all; love, hate, intrigue, twists and turns to satisfy my love of puzzles and sex that melts. The thing that disappointed me was that it ended just when it got the most interesting. I was waiting to see if she chose to do as Saaldon did, and how their life went, to name a few things. So I’m hoping there’s a sequel in the future?
