About ANCIENT PROTECTOR
Even as he fights for their future…
With the world still rebuilding after massive dragon attacks, famous singer Star isn’t willing to rely on a stranger to protect her family—though dragon shifter Lachlan is difficult to resist. Something about him is strangely familiar, but she doesn’t understand why. He’s already helped Star rescue her sister from a recent abduction, but trust doesn’t come easy when his kind has nearly hunted her race to extinction. When her sister’s kidnapper launches another violent attack, Star has no choice but to accept Lachlan’s aid. But no matter that he’s stepped up to protect her, she’ll never allow the ancient Scottish dragon into her heart.
They’re bound by the past.
Lachlan lost the woman he was meant to mate millennia ago. Unable to live in a world without her, his pain drove him to hibernation. He never thought he would move on—until Star. He’s well aware the feisty shifter is his new destiny, so if tailing her to New Orleans is what he has to do to be near her, then so be it. When Star is attacked, Lachlan resolves to protect her at all costs. And he won’t have to do it alone. It will take Lachlan, his clansmen, and Star’s misfit band of friends to rain fiery vengeance down upon their enemy if she and her sister are to ever be truly free. Only then can he claim her and discover the shocking truth that lies buried in their past.
Thrilling beginning to a new series with tons of supernatural beings. The story begins with superstar singing sensation, Star, a shifter hiding her true nature and in a race to save her sister, Aurora, from captivity and the evil dragon, Oscar. I love Star and her crew of shifters that she rules as their Alpha. The plan is set to free Aurora and with the help of a sexy Scottish dragon, Lachlan, it’s successful. But it’s an all out war as the dragons and Star’s group of shifters cause the facade between humans and supernaturals to break. Humans are adapting to a new world after the fight left the world in chaos with the supernaturals taking over to create a new order in the face of ruin. The good are rooting out the bad and protecting the humans. But that’s not the end of Oscar. His obsession with Aurora has Star’s crew fleeing to New Orleans and under the rule of the city’s Alpha, wolf shifter King. For me this started out reminiscent of other dragon/shifter stories but as it continued it separated itself with fabulous characters and the unique writing of this terrific author, especially with her sexy romance between the main characters. It wasn’t too difficult to figure out the kind of shifter Star and Aurora are and the visual of their unveiling was fantastic. This was a quick, thrilling read with intriguing characters including shifters and also a few humans. I loved all the different types of shifters in different types of relationships and the set up for the coming stories. I can’t wait Aurora and King’s story. And my favorite the sexy lion shifter, Axel. I look forward to the next installment in this new exciting series full of fierce battles, sexy romance, and fantastic family and friends.
