First we’re introduced to our hero and heroine on board a bus from Penrith that is so atmospheric I felt as though I was on seated, making way to a Murder Weekend getaway. Perfect set up for the story in misting, jostling and umm, brief hip-to-hip introduction between Fleur and Lukas.
Off for a weekend of fun…or are we down for some kick-ass, dragon heart, and savage hero balls to wall when it really counts to get the girl, fight evil tooth and tail, and find a dragon egg?
Repeat after me: OH YEAH!!
“Deep inside, Lukas’ dragon soul roared. Fire seared his organs and flowed into his arteries. He fought for his humanity as his gaze scanned the darkness for any sign of Fleur. He embraced his inner fire.”
******SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!! This is the type of story that you’d better be prepared to buckle up ‘cause it’s a fast, schmexy ride. During the Murder Mystery weekend, a place where a cast of paranormal characters meet and greet, including our innocent very human Fleur.
Fleur is prepared to step outside her constraining lifestyle into a wilder side by getting into character as Megan Wilde—and boy oh boy, does she ever! Little does Fleur know, a whole other scene is brewing, one in which Lukas is searching for evil as the undercover dragon lord. Sexy, charismatic and trying to keep from giving into his desire, namely for Fleur. Dude has been around for a millennium at least but he knows Fleur isn’t just another pretty face.
As to our secondary characters…we’ve a witch, Jasmine, who can see into the future by way of a nightmare where she envisions her lover (won’t say more than that) and also a silver wolf shifter aka protector, Zane. Both these two play up the supporting character roles to the hilt. I’m thinking Jasmine and Zane Loup will need room to spread their story as in a Book 2. Yes? Hope so.
But we can’t have a dragon tale without a dismal villain and Ms. Hunt does not disappoint when we meet Xavier, manicured, Milanese business man veneer, but honey beneath lurks a demon to die for (pun intended). Xavier dons his human apparel, and I must say, I do adore the dark side and when it comes slithering, black-scaled with two heads and capable of a poisonous bite. Talk about insidious…enough to seek harm to the innocent as bait in a faceoff between dragon and snake. High freaking five! I’m into this devilish brouhaha. So we’re on stage with a superb cast of characters, scenery, and tension galore. Lukas and Zane and Jasmine are aware that danger is near, while some are seriously caught off guard such as Fleur. But of course, Mr. Serpente is present in one form or another, it’s mayhem in the making regardless if it is cocktails being served or everyone is neck-deep in the hunt for the dragon egg. Why? Because to be present or the first creature a baby dragon sees means that lucky person shall become the guardian and very, very powerful.
Who is that person? Well, you’ll just have to read The Dragon Legacy to find out. Fast-paced paranormal romance with twists and turns, lots of interesting snippets, lyrical prose, HOT sexy scenes, and a happy ending!’
