Lana is a healer and midwife in Eddleton, a small village near the Ashen Forest, which is supposedly defended by dragons. A plague is killing people throughout the entire kingdom and Lana has discovered a plant that could be the difference between life and death. While hunting for dragon bane she meets a handsome stranger – and the attraction is mutual. Alaron shows her an herbal concoction that will cure the plague but she cannot tell anyone about her or where she learned about the medicine. Several secretive and passionate meetings later, she decides it’s time to be Alaron’s mate and leave her former life behind.
This is a seriously steamy book. There are couplings of twosomes, threesomes, foursomes, voyeurism, a little bondage, and even a little dragon sex. The intimate acts were described quite nicely and yet I would have enjoyed the book without them. The storyline was terrific and would have be successful without the erotica.
I love happy endings and I was not disappointed with the way this book ended. I would love to read more about Lana and Alaron’s adventures.
