Summary

In Victorian England, gossip is often as precious as gold. But the Highlanders are a more mysterious bunch. And if anyone found out what Stephen MacAlasdair really was, he'd be hunted down, murdered, his clan wiped out. As he's called to London on business, he'll have to be extra vigilant - especially between sunset and the appearance of the first evening star.

Mina just wanted to find out more about the arrogant man who showed up in her employer's office. Some might say it was part of her job. She never thought the stranger would turn into a dragon right in front of her. Or that he'd then offer her an outrageous sum of money to serve as his personal secretary. Working together night and day to track a dangerous enemy, Mina comes to see a man in love is more powerful and determined than any dragon.

Couldn't Finish

I've listened to this narrator before and liked him. Guess it was this author and her writing style. It just didn't do anything for me. I was too bored to finish it.

Too bored to finish..

Any additional comments?

I had high hopes for this book because I like dragon shifter books.
The hero, Stephan, and the heroine, Mina, met on the very first page. I've read 61 pages and there's no sign of any attraction: no thought, no word, nothing. So, I'm thinking that if there's going to be any kind of sensuality it's going to be sudden and over with real fast. Not my kind of book. I think, after reading Dragon Bound, all dragon books will be just as good as that one but I'm so wrong. Anyway, I'm sorry but I'm done with this book.
And besides that, I have no real idea what the two look like, except he has golden eyes. The descriptions are terrible!

As for the narrator: As usual the male narrators don't do a very good job on the female voices, but at least he tried, even if he didn't succeed. IMO
And I had to change the speed to 1.25 because he reads very slow.

Good story

Good story, well thought out, no outstanding holes. Didn’t give it a 5 star because it just didn’t have me hanging on the edge of my seat waiting how it would all work out.

fun romp

I kind of wish there was more. the end was a bit abrupt and the story could have used a little more meat but I paused or rewound when interrupted by kids or husband and that is always a positive indicator in my household
