Alone. Caged. Her only freedom will be in death…
Captured as a chick, Sula can barely remember life outside her cage. Her tears, feathers and blood have been stolen until she’s a pale shadow of the Phoenix she’s meant to be. She prays for the sweet release of death, expecting it when her owner’s warehouse is attacked.
What she doesn’t expect is the big male with the midnight eyes who rescues her, taking her home thinking she’s a pet bird, or her reaction to his gentle touch and the scent of his dragon. After so many years, can she trust another… and reveal the truth about herself in the process?
A dragon on a mission, he’ll stop at nothing to destroy the slavers plaguing shifter society…
And they don’t come more in need than the little bird Damian discovers huddled in a box on his latest mission. A black dragon, he’s responsible for the protection of dragonkind and by extension, all shifters, and he hates those who trade in paranormal artefacts with a passion.
He’s never taken any of them home, but the wide, golden eyes of the little bird hit him on a soul-deep level. The need to care for her and nurse her back to health overwhelm both him and his dragon, a need he doesn’t understand until he finds a naked woman in his kitchen. A naked woman with very familiar golden eyes…
But Sula’s masters haven’t given up on the profit she’ll bring them and they track her down to Damian’s apartment. When they take her, can he get to her in time, or will he lose his fated mate before they have a chance at their happily ever after?
This is a very sweet book.
The way the people in the book responded to each of the situation was so sweet and after the way Sula suffered, it made up of all the pain she got.
I am actually lost for words on how to express how I like this book. The only reason for not having a 5 star is because, I wanted to read more about the couple. Just like the White Queen and Sawyer.
The way the his Dragon and his unhealthy obsession with a Faberge egg was something else, so is the love for anything sweet. It was such a nice touch that a man with such a physique would have one heck of a sweet tooth.
Mina Carter has a magical way when it comes to writing these quick reads stories. It to the point and satisfying. There is a certain anticipation on who will be featured on her next book and in what series it would fall into. I look forward to reading more of her books.
