This is book two of a series. I did not have the opportunity to read the first one however I do not feel it is necessary to understand this one. At only 45 pages this was a very fast read but definitely worth it.

The relationship between Remy, Philippe and Lilly is hot. When Lilly is threatened by an old enemy and they are forced to fight we are allowed to see their dragon forms. We also learn why Remy & Philippe are so close and share one woman. I will not spoil it for you.

I honestly don’t know how the author was able to pack so much into this book but I really enjoyed it. Since I like fantasy and science fiction type settings I enjoyed it even more when they are at the compound in Colorado.





The softness of the bedding was the sweetest torture against her skin. Even her sense of smell was heightened. She could smell him on her skin. “I’d rather have you to keep me warm,” she said. “Right now, I’m

not just warm, I’m hot. Burning up.”

“That’s the potion talking,” Philippe said, stripping out of his

clothes and joining her on the bed.

“What the hell was that anyway?” Lilly asked.

Remy answered, “It’s an old charm, an aphrodisiac made from

roots and herbs, with a bit of magic tossed in. The nightshade was added to it to also give it a sedative effect, which I imagine is why you are having such a difficult time moving. If it was a small dose, it should wear off soon. I think it’s beginning to already.”

“How long does the other effect last?”

“It’s hard to say… perhaps a few hours. Perhaps until tomorrow. It can be very uncomfortable,” Philippe responded, his fingertips trailing over her exposed skin. The lightest of touches, it still had her reeling. “It heightens every sense…. taste, touch, smell. Everything you experience, whether it is pain or pleasure, will be more intense.”

Remy glanced at Philippe and smiled. “We’re going to be in for a very long night.”

Lilly shivered as she felt Philippe’s lips against her neck. He kissed the mark there. Though it was always sensitive, she was unprepared for how the potion would magnify that. Her blood raced through her veins. Everywhere he touched her seemed to arc directly to her core until, with no more than a kiss, her body was weeping for him.

“Kiss me,” she urged.

Philippe moved above her and claimed her lips in a slow, languid kiss. It defied the rage that burned inside him at what had almost happened. But having Lilly taken from them, even if only for a short time, had given him the need to show her how much he treasured her. With his lips, teeth, and tongue, he played at her mouth, delving inside and then retreating, only to nip her lower lip. Her answering moan was all the encouragement he needed to keep going. Behind him, he could hear Remy disrobing. They truly would be in for a long night. The drug could take hours to work its way out of Lilly’s system, and until then, she would crave their touch as she never had before.

Leaving the lushness of her delicious mouth, he trailed hot, wet kisses along the column of her throat until he reached the upper swells of

her breasts. Her nipples were pebbled and begging for his touch. Mindful of how sensitive she would be, he traced the hardened buds lightly with his tongue, gentle but insistent. She moaned loudly, her back arching slightly. He cupped her other breast, teasing the nipple delicately, rolling it between his fingers until she screamed his name. When he felt the bed sink beneath Remy’s weight, he trailed his other hand over her belly, down to the soft, damp slit. As he traced the hardened bud of her clit, he felt Remy part her thighs wider, parting the pink lips of her sex. To keep her from screaming, Philippe kissed her again as Remy plunged his tongue into her.
