This is the first time I have had the pleasure of reading Kathy Kulig’s work, and it will not be the last. In this short, we meet a female nature witch, Jaida, who works as a biologist. She has a dragon companion Kai, who changes forms twice a year and becomes a sexually insatiable man, who must feed that lust or die. In the “in-between’ Jaida re-encounters an old flame in Captain Brayden Stokes, a space captain. Long ago Jaida and Brayden had an attraction, and the flames have not lessened one bit. But her little planet hideaway is the perfect place to keep Kai safe and alive.
The tension between the characters is palpable; the steam fairly rises off the pages, even as the secrets and questions are building to a final confrontation. Jaida is afraid of giving too much to Brayden, her heart and loyalties lie with Kai. But, that attraction is one that is hard to deny. To top it off, Kai will soon change into his ravenous self, if Brayden hasn’t flown off planet things could get sticky. Or interesting. Or, interestingly sticky.
Well-crafted characters that arrive with complexity that is wholly real and well-developed despite the shortness of the story, making the tensions and attractions, and understanding them an easy task. With steamy ménage and interesting tender moments between the characters, you can’t help but appreciate the story, and not know just who to root for. A few cleverly inserted twists made this a page turner, full of story, heart and heat with intriguing world-building that give that otherworldly feel without becoming muddled or confused. A really good read with something for every reader of erotic paranormal, even with the short length: there is a complete story here with satisfaction for all.
