In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.
Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.
As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.
Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.
A modern day paranormal Romeo and Juliet. Jessen is a human that is trying to live her life without being prejudiced against the Morgon like her high power father. She meets Lucius after a fight breaks out at his bar. The fight was because of her. Lucius is a Nightwing Morgon who has never been with a human and tries to fight the pull he has for Jessen from the being. At least as the book goes on we see them together and they realize that they can’t fight it.
Juliette Cross wrote this brightly. As it moved from Jessen point of view to Lucius point of view you were not lost. We were shown that the was already bad blood between Nightwing and the Cade families even before the love birds came along. I would have like to know more of the back story about the Nightwing clan and hopefully that will be touched more in the series. I enjoy this book and can’t wait for the next one.
