A Dragon Spirit Novel: Book 4
Their connection is as wild as their magic… and just as dangerous.
Nero survived the loss of his inamorata by the skin of his dragon-spirit’s teeth. Since then he’s focused every ounce of his power — magical and political — on hoarding the most unlikely of treasures: innocent human mages. Rescuing them instead of following orders to murder them.
Now his secret, forbidden coterie is under threat from Rebecca Scott. Victim. Soldier. Mage unaware. A woman trapped in a tortuous lab experiment, whose pain and terror echo down the unbreakable cords binding them together.
Unsure if her hell is real or a PTSD-induced nightmare, Becca jumps at one slim chance to escape the sadistic white-coats probing her broken psyche, following a strange, alluring voice throbbing from somewhere deep in her bones.
When Becca’s desperation yanks Nero to her side, he makes a staggering discovery. This courageous, half-crazed woman is, impossibly, his second inamorata. But even if she gets her wish to carve their souls apart, it’s too late for him. If her heart stops, so will his… and everyone under his protection, human and dragon, will be lost.
