Toxic to all those who touch him, dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation, a prisoner of the poison in his veins.

She doesn’t want to face her future…
Wanted by the Russian mob, creative accountant Evelyn Foxe isn’t looking for love. She searching for the fastest way to escape instead. When Venom offers to get her out of trouble, she accepts his help, but remains skeptical, afraid he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when someone unleashes a biological weapon in her hometown, and she gets caught in the firestorm, little choice remains—trust Venom to keep her safe or risk her life by going it alone.
I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review.
Venom, is a toxic dragon warrior, and has always felt isolated from others. His touch can be poison, especially to women. He has the capability to make them sick or even kill them if they are not his mate, the only one who is built to withstand his toxic touch. With his best friend, having recently found his mate, Venom feels more alone than ever. So feeling caged and needed to find some release, he goes in search of a woman, one with high energy to feed on. Evelyn Foxe had a prestigious career with many opportunities ahead of her. Until a scandal was released and she was put in the middle, and was blamed for it all. Now it’s been months since she has had a job, no one will hire her. Now with a threat from the Russian mob, her grandmother’s life at risk, she must find a way to get a large amount of money…and she can think of only one way, offer her body up. As much as the thought disgusts her she doesn’t have any choice, it is that or the only person who has ever loved will pay the price. But her first client, is not what she expected, a man with an aura of power and danger, but one with a gentle touch and patient manner. Venom and Evelyn, soon find that they are mates, but there is a rising danger to Dragonkind and their enemy is fierce….will they survive…
This series is just amazing, and if you love sexy dragon shifters…than this series is for you. Coreen Callahan writes stunning romances, and this series has had me since the first book. Most of the series up until now I have done through audiobook, so when I was given the chance to read this ARC, it was quite different reading it in book form verses the audio format. But I did enjoy it quite a bit, and we see all the previous players from previous books take a role in this story. This book pretty much takes off from where the last book ended. I would recommend reading this series in order, even though each book could be read as a stand-alone, you might get a bit confused on what is happening with certain circumstances.
The story sets off where we get these two meeting for the first time in a hotel room. Now I honestly had no idea what to expect with this scenario, but evidently I really enjoyed the twists and the way that these two connect together, and Venom oh he is my kind of hero. Such a romantic, and I loved how he wants to woo and court Evelyn instead of kidnapping her and taking her to his “lair” like his other brethren have done with their women. I loved how Venom treats Evelyn, from the very beginning, he is so patient and understanding, and with him being an Alpha male, Callahan does a tremendous job of balancing out his character. Evelyn is quite a strong willed heroine; I loved her from the beginning of the story. She stands up to Venom, and has her own special qualities, and I loved how she is willing to risk everything for someone she loves, even if she hates herself for doing it. She is such a charming heroine, and I grew to really like her from beginning to end. Their relationship is quite steamy, and boy can they set the room ablaze….you might want to bring a fire extinguisher with you as you read this one.
Overall a winning romance that had me from the beginning. A story of fated love, with burning passion, thrilling adventures, and a love story to endear you. HEART MELTING!
