Adopted a few weeks after birth, Ivy Morales suspects that she might not be totally human. Fully aware that one whisper of such insanity would land her in a mental institution, she keeps the outlandish thought to herself. But there's no ignoring the increasingly vivid and stunningly powerful dreams of an ancient blood feud that plague her nightly—or the darkly erotic turn those dreams have recently taken.
Drawn to Mexico for Spring Break, Ivy unwittingly stumbles right into the path of the same evil presence from her mysterious dreams. Kidnapped and held hostage, she has only one chance to survive. She reaches out to the wickedly sexy man from her dreams and prays he'll answer her call for help.
Welsh dragon shifter Ian Madoc struggles to understand the strange dream connection he shares with this unknown woman. In all his centuries of life, he's never experienced anything like it—and it unsettles him. When the dreams turn to pleas for help, Mad rushes off in the middle of the night, hell-bent on saving the young woman he fears may be his mate.
But rescuing Ivy from the clutches of the Knights is only the beginning of Mad's problems. When Ivy's true identity is revealed, old secrets and a close friend's betrayal put him at odds with the rest of the Brotherhood. Protecting the dragon species is no longer his top priority. He'll do anything to keep Ivy safe, even if it means walking away from the only life he's ever known.
Wicked Dark Dragon is the third installment in this dragon shifter series. I have been watching this author ever since the first book of this series came out a little while back. And I have been itching to try her out, so when I was given the opportunity to try this out from Netgalley, I was more than thrilled. Now if you are looking for a short and sexy read, love dragon shifters, then this book and others in this series, is the perfect diversion for a lazy afternoon. The story sets off with Ivy being captured, who had no idea that she was nothing more than human with some special matchmaking gifts. Now she is being held captive by a dying seer, who wants to destroy her and destroy the Brotherhood that Mad is a part of. Ivy knows that Mad is her mate and calls out to him to save her, and soon they both learn that the Seer has more plans for them than just keeping them prisoner. What I really enjoyed about this story was how short and sweet it was. I have a weakness for dragon shifters, and this story was such a fun interlude for my day. I just breezed right through this story, and I really enjoyed the author’s writing style. It was very engaging and quick-witted, and the humor is playful. I definitely got some giggles in this one. It is shorter, and I will admit one of my problems with this story was how I never felt a full connection between the characters. There are good remnants of it, but with it being just a little over 100 pages, I felt like it needed a bit more. But having said that, I truly enjoyed the setting and the introduction into the brotherhood, I definitely plan on reading more from this author. Overall a tantalizing shifter romance that kept me engaged from beginning to end. A love story of passion, danger, and mystery. A QUIRKY GEM!!
