His beast will have her beauty-but only on his terms.

Sirena Blaze has left a string of smiling males across the galaxy-but she’s not smiling now. After two attempts to sabotage her ship, it’s time to call for backup. Her warriors deserve the best, and that means recruiting a member of the elite Serpentian guard as co-commander.

One look at Slyde Stone, and Sirena’s smile returns. She sets out to indulge in the sensual delights for which his people are legendary.

Slyde would like nothing more than to bed the famous beauty, but a secret binds the hands that burn to take her. He is a half-dragon shifter, a race thought to be nothing more than a myth. He’s real, and so is the code he must live by-he can mate only once.

Sirena’s fury at Slyde’s refusal knows no bounds-until saboteurs loose a pair of deadly serpents on board the Orion. And the infuriating man has the gall to make a wager. If she finds them first, she can have him. But if he wins, she must agreet to be his alone-for life.


Review:  Prince of Dragons makes you want to live in books.

Slyde Stone is a one woman man and he won’t settle for less. He is a dragon-shifter and has to stay undercover so that he can find his mate and have her fall for him and not his status. So he must stay a virgin until he finds his mate. That is just the way of the dragons.

Sirena Blaze is good at her job. She also has abandonment issues. She has sex with men and leaves them before they can leave her. She’s on the prowl for another man when she meets Slyde. It doesn’t seem that he wants her so she finds another male.

You can just feel the sparks that are coming off of Slyde and Sirena. They both want each other for different reasons. Sirena just wants to have sex with Slyde. Slyde wants Sirena as his mate and knows that she isn’t ready. This is the first story that I’ve read that the woman really just goes and has sex with men when she wants just one.

This story has everything that you want in a book. You have sex, fighting, and people trying to kill you. You never know what is going to happen next. So you are kept on the edge of your seat. It is just so exciting. The story just had a great plot.

You would think that you were on a love boat instead of a ship that had passengers and cargo. You also get to meet the other characters from the other two books and see what is going on with them. I enjoyed the suspense of the two killer snakes and everyone trying to find them before they killed who they were sent to kill.

You also wonder if Slyde will be able to stay a virgin until he mates with Sirena or will he give in to his hunger if it gets to be too much. Who will win the bargain? I can’t wait to read the next one and see what happens. I wonder what it will be about and will they finally catch the person who is out to sabotage the ship?

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great adventure and loves a lot of sex. So happy reading and enjoy.
