He is as cold as ice. 

She is the salvation that will melt his heart. 

When Endora is faced with her daughter’s terminal illness, she takes the only chance she’s got. She braves the potential risks and signs a mating contract with the Delradon Draekon Lords, intent on using the payment to buy the aliens’ cure to save her daughter’s life.

Lord Aldric Darragon rules over his land with an iron fist until one day the only woman who is genetically compatible with him agrees to his offer of mating. As his all-consuming passion for Endora explodes, an ancient threat looms heavy over humans and Delradons alike. With the lives of everyone he cares about hanging in the balance, Aldric has to fight the demons of his past if he wants to defeat the enemies of the present. 

 Publisher’s Note: This gripping sci-fi alien romance has it all: dragons, passion and tension. It also contains explicit themes and is intended for adults only.

My Review:


I liked the plot of the book. I was completely engrossed by the idea of alien beings coming to save us from ourselves, save the earth from our ruin (silly humans, lol) and I absolutely adore dragons so it was like a win-win.

I loved Aldric's character. I liked that he was mostly silent and broody, but his bond with Rhyl was gorgeous. I loved their fierceness, their loyalty, the danger they represented. I also liked that Rhyl was just as playful as he was deadly. I liked his possessiveness (don't judge me), I also liked that he was so adamant about protecting his family (although he took it too far). I loved that he had so much emotional depth, even though he didn't always show it.

I can't say that I actually liked Endora's character. While she had her reasons for the things she did, I felt like a lot of it wasn't warranted. I felt like once she made her sacrifice and Aldric basically told her he wouldn't let her go, she should've came clean. I didn't lie that she carried on with her lies when there was no real need to. I also didn't agree with her reasoning for leaving the castle. That just made absolutely no sense to me. With so much danger, the obvious dislike from certain people, and faced with the person who abandoned her when she needed it most, her choices were basically dumb.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, but Endora kind of ruined the total effect for me. I would still recommend it to others and I would definitely read more from the author.
