A dragon never leaves his hoard unguarded. His heart is another matter.

The second eldest in an ancient line of Russian dragon shifters, Mikhail Barinov had one job: protect one of the family hoard of jewels. Distracted by the English virgin queen Elizabeth, who was as dazzling as she was devious; he lost everything. Five centuries of exile later, news that a construction crew has unearthed a massive trove of gold and jewels sends him racing to London, determined to steal back his family’s treasure…and his honor.

Professional gemologist Piper Linwood can’t wait to bury herself in her newest project, evaluating a hoard of Elizabethan-era treasure. But both her life and career are threatened when a mysterious, brooding man with a dangerous smile—and an even more dangerous kiss—snatches the lot.

Unwillingly swept along for the ride, Piper discovers Mikhail is no mere thief. And the dragon on his back is more than a tattoo. It’s a living, breathing extension of a bad boy she’s finding harder and harder to resist. But his heart is a treasure she can never own…because to save her career, she’ll have to betray his trust.

My Thoughts:

Although I don’t read much paranormal or shifter romance I have read both books so far in this series and look forward to reading book #3, Rurik.

After reading book #1, I thought Lauren’s imagination could not possibly extend to making this a three book series. Well so far, so good.
We don’t get as much description of Mikhail as we did Grigori, but we do find his tattoo an ingenious addition. I became so absorbed with this book that I found it difficult to put down.
Although I feel each book could be read as a standalone, I think you should read them all in order to get full enjoyment of this wonderfully imaginative series.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a high sensual rating of 4.5 of 5 flames. We’re not talking graphic sex, but some of the love scenes are really heated in nature, so be prepared to swoon.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the author and her publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

From the Award Winning author of The Godhunter Series comes an exciting new Urban Fantasy series!
Would you like to hear a real fairy tale? A story about the war between us and them. A war which led to a truce and a truce which led to the creation of a secret society. There are councils you know nothing about, councils of fairies and of humans who write laws which govern us both. Laws you also know nothing about, yet you are held accountable to them. If you break these laws, the Wild Hunt of Fairy will come for you, but don’t worry too much, it’s hard to break laws concerning things you don’t believe in. Fairies tend to break the truce more than humans and that’s where I come in. I’m part of a military force which monitors the Fey. When they cross the line we extinguish their light… permanently. I’m Extinguisher Seren Sloane and I can tell you a real fairy’s tale, if you’re brave enough to listen.
