Dragon shifter Connor O’Rourke loves his life as a firefighter, but one thing remains missing. His mate. She left him high and dry with only a note and the memory of her kiss. When several mysterious arsons are committed in Dallas, the shifter is called in to investigate and discovers Jenna working at the local firehouse.
Jenna Dunne was betrothed to the strong and sexy shifter at birth. While there was no doubt she wanted to be his mate, she is a halfling and might never bear him the children he desires. With his species dwindling and the barbaric rules their society enforces, she knows Connor could toss her aside for another woman. There is only one thing she can do to save her heart. Run.
Connor has two choices, free his mate from the bond that was started long ago or fight for the woman he loves. With an arsonist on the loose, Jenna’s life is in danger, and their chance for happiness may come too late.
SEXY DRAGON SHIFTER,
I'm a huge fan of this author, Valerie Twombly is masterful at creating some of the best paranormal/suspense romances out there. This book is a great start to what I'm guessing will be a an amazing new firefighter series.
Connor O'Rourke is a so very hot firefighter and also a sexy dragon-shifter. When a series of arson fires takes him to Texas, Connor can't believe his luck....to find the one woman that has captivated his every thought.
Beautiful Jenna Dunne, is a paramedic with a firehouse in Dallas, she is also a Halfling.....half human/half dragon. Having been betrothed to Connor at birth, Jenna believes unworthy to be the mate of a full dragon, so she flees.
When Connor and Jenna are near each other the sparks fly and the angels sing at the sexual/lust/love of these two feel for one another. I sure do love my dragon shifters and this book was very exciting, giving the reader both suspense and sexual attraction to melt the kindle into a gooy pile. Another winner from a fantastic author!
THEY ARE SO HOT,
Connor is a dragon shifter who also is a fire fighter. Dragons have arranged marriages and he was bonded to Jenna when she was just a baby. He watched her grown up and they had a close friendship with benefits for over a hundred years. Then one day a year ago Jenna ran away suddenly saying she couldn't mate him and she disappeared. Following her family's advice, he gave her time to rethink but his longing is getting too much. He is also about to enter his sexual heat that all males experience every 50 years.
Jenna is a halfling dragon shifter. She loves Connor but ran away because she was afraid of losing him. Some dragon halflings are infertile and infertile females have their mating bonds broken and they are exiled forever. When her cousin is proven to infertile, her fears become too much and she runs.
Connor is sent to Dallas to help out in a serial arson investigation. Imagine his surprise when after arriving, he starts to catch scent of Jenna. He is determined to get her back.
This is a great book with lots of love and passion, mystery and some danger. Connor and Jenna have to go against their dragon traditions. I voluntarily received a copy of this book and this is my honest review.
NOT MY FIRST BOOK BY THIS AUTHOR AND WON'T BE MY LAST,
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. This is my review.
The start of the book introduces us to Connor, over 6ft of pure male. Not the normal dragon shifter to be found in other books, this one has a uniqueness about it. The dragon shifter can shift into any size of dragon apart from its natural predator which proved very useful further on into the story. The story starts with a fire burning out of control destroying everything in its path. He and his able team bring about the end to the fire and sees him heading home. A phone call changes everything, he is needed in Dallas, an arsonist leaving no clues, causing death and destruction. The last thing he expected was to find his missing mate, Jenna. I wont give away the story, no spoilers here. The book is well written in the author's unique style. With a strong story line and characters. I enjoyed the book, though I would of liked to of gotten to know the characters more. The book was short but enjoyable. I look forward to more dragon shifters. Thank you A********************
Fighting fires is in Derrick’s blood. Left shaken after the tragic loss of his best friend, the event forces him to realize he can’t afford to care. Love has cost him everything and the pain has him vowing to never suffer such heartache again. When he tries to start over in a small northern town, a beautiful woman steps into his life and pushes every boundary he sets in place.
Being a full-blooded dragon shifter makes Halee an anomaly among her kind. With her eldest brother pressuring her to choose a mate, her loyalties are torn. Turning to a stranger for the night, she hopes to forget the fate she must face. But when the stranger, Derrick, shows up as the new guy at the station, Halee must choose between duty and stability or a man whose kiss unleashes a passion she never realized existed.
Both were looking for escape, but neither expected to find each other. Every heated encounter pulls them closer together. When fire strikes again, it will leave Derrick facing the ultimate choice: break his vow or walk away from Halee forever.
A FAST PACED DRAMA,
Once you start reading this, call it a day! You will not be able to put it down. This is the second in the series. It is not necessary to read the first (but it was great), this reads well on it's own. Where do I start. The story is filled with so much emotion. Derrick has suffered so much loss in his life. He is not interested in letting anyone new in to his heart. Halee on the other hand, is worried over the loss that she could suffer, if she mates out of duty to her species. They meet by chance, and sparks fly. When they meet again, the fun begins. A fast paced drama in a paranormal world. Humor, heartache, action and romance. Ms. Twombly has such talent when creating her characters. I enjoyed the show of closeness and love between the siblings. The loyalty between the whole Team was dynamic. It was a joy to follow these two as they found their HEA. This is my voluntary opinion of an advanced copy I received.
SO MUCH BETTER THAN GOOD,
A few words of caution…
You shouldn’t mess with a dragon lady.
Oops! Too late!
Halee certainly isn’t a lady… exactly.
But she most certainly is a dragon.
And this is one fire you don’t want to put out!
To say I was riveted to this story from the beginning would be an understatement. I couldn’t catch my breath half the the time and the other half I was gulping air! And then, I realized it was only the prologue!
I thought to myself, “If the rest of the story is this intense, I’ll never make it!”
But I did. Oh, I did… And…
Wow! Just wow.
Bottom line: So much better than good! 5 stars.

Chance O’Connell doesn’t do romance. After the firefighter has his heart broken, his idea of a relationship consists of one night with no attachments. Somehow, the dragon shifter finds himself drawn to Hope, the waitress at the local diner. Rather than make her one of his conquests, he sits in her section and pretends he doesn’t want her.
Hope Sinclair is done with abusive men and being a victim. A new town and a new job at a local diner are all she needs for a fresh start. That is until a sexy firefighter takes up near residence in her section. He wants to be friends, but she wants something more. With the holiday bachelor auction coming up, Hope sets her heart on winning a date with Chance.
One night threatens Chance’s vow to remain single, but by the time he finally admits they belong together, it might prove too late. Turns out Hope didn’t run far enough and her past may be the end of them both.
