Cora Cardenas has gotten into some deep and pretty scary trouble, so she heads to the only person she trusts to help her out and keep her safe. Stig Wyvern, best friend to her deceased brother told her if there was ever anything she needed she could come to him. And boy, does she need him. So she arrives on his doorstep, but it’s the worst possible time for her to come knocking. Stig is a dragon and is in his mating heat. With the way he’s always felt about Cora, well…let’s just say Stig is stuck between a rock and a hard on, I mean, place. Hard place.
I enjoyed this short story. I like both Stig and Cora, they are fairly well-fleshed out as characters. Smart, funny, a bit insecure but courageous. It’s also a well-written story, but since it’s short there isn’t a lot of world-building going on. However, there is enough, combined with Cora and Stig and a glimpse at Stig’s compatriots that I’m interested in continuing on with the series. Oh, and did I mention the steamy scenes? Yeah, those are hot. *fans self* I am so looking forward to book 2, Red Hot Dragon.
