Abandoned and humiliated, Melanie tries her best to maintain her composure as Bram explains the reason for Tristan leaving--something called a “mate claim frenzy”. In other words, the next time Tristan comes face to face with her, his inner dragon will take control and claim her for his own. Both Bram and Samira try to convince her to accept his attentions earlier than her contract specifies or risk putting not only herself, but also the members of their clan in danger.
Tristan stays away from Melanie as long as possible, but to prevent his dragon from completely taking over, he returns to Stonefire’s lands the afternoon after the First Kiss ceremony. When he shows up naked on Melanie’s doorstep, his human-half maintains control long enough to garner her consent.
Now it’s only a matter of time before Melanie conceives and fulfills her contract. But once she does, will Tristan overcome his hatred of humans and stay with her, or will he push her away?
Tristan is in a “mate claim frenzy” so Melanie has no doubt that it’s only a matter of time before she conceives and fulfills her contract. Will Tristan overcome his hatred of humans and stay with her or will he push her away in this riveting novella.
This fast paced and well written plot keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation and captures the imagination as Melanie struggles to accept her place among the dragons.
The attraction that Tristan’s dragon feels for Melanie sends them both to heights of ecstasy during the “mate claim frenzy” with lots of super hot sex, but Tristan’s past issues are still clouding his judgment and the reader can’t help but be drawn deeper into their story as they wait with anticipation to discover if Tristan will let it ruin everything.
This fascinating story continues to enthrall me with its captivating characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

About Jessie Donovan:
Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.
After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.
Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, she can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.
