Matteo Berberis, dragon shifter, has not been adjusting very well to life away from the Pontic Mountains. Sure, he lives in Bear Canyon Valley, and he’s got freedoms he never had before, but his dragon is angry. He misses their home country. What’s a dragon shifter to do when shifting into his dragon—and running off is not an option. Not in a world where dragons are hunted. When did the apex predator of all shifter types become the hunted? He gives his dragon his head and they roam, flying over Bear Canyon Valley regularly.
This day was anything but regular though. He’s come across a beautiful stranger with a problem. He’d have thought he could provide help until he had a problem of his own. Stuck mid-shift, he finds himself at her mercy and at the mercy of those hunting her.
Jolie Anker’s not simply a girl on a hike. She’s harboring a secret that could bring doom to the Bear Canyon Valley clan. She’s a refugee from a wizard and his bear shifter flunkies. She’s had her power stripped and has no clue if she can muster enough to deal a blow to the dastardly wizard. But now, as if things weren’t complicated enough, she’s run into a dragon shifter who seems hell-bent on not minding his own business. Who said she needed saving?
