How To Claim Your Dragon...

As the head of security of Vegas's Crown Jewel casino―and its hidden dragonshifter sanctuary―ice dragon Darius Dachien commands respect. Unfortunately, that respect isn't always reciprocated. In fact, when it comes to the stunning Mei Chen, hostility might be a better word. Which makes things even harder for Darius, since Mei is his dragon mate. Without her, his dragon form is fading fast... and once lost, will be gone forever.

Mei can't deny the fierce chemistry that simmers between them. If Darius were ever to discover who―or rather, what―she really is, she wouldn't just lose him, but her place with the dragonshifters. The moment Mei's past comes crashing into her present, she realizes her time for secrets has ended. Now she must reveal her true self... and risk both her life and her heart with the one man who could destroy her.
Kathie's Review:

I've been looking forward to this one since I read Stop Dragon My Heart Around. We met Darius and Mei then, and I knew there were going to be some fireworks. SHE really does not want to give into the bond they have forming between them. She has some major issues in the way of a really bad past and she doesn't want to drag Darius into it.

For his part, Darius' dragon is waning. They've found their mate, Mei, but if she won't accept the bond, his dragon is toast. 

Unlike a couple dragon shifter books I've read recently, we get to spend quite a bit of time with these dragons as they've shifted. We are with them as they fly, as they drool over their gems (Mei's got hers locked in a cage at the bottom of a lake), and as they fight. I loved that about this series.

I was a bit confused when Mei nearly attacks this chippy that smelled of Darius. We know he used her to try and make Mei jealous, but that was ages ago...why would she still smell like him? Especially since they didn't actually do anything. 

I loved how they wanted to protect each other, once they've given in to the fact they DO belong together. They have quite a few obstacles to overcome, though. 

All in all, a lot of fun and I can only want more in this series.


Thank you, Ms. Scott and Entangled, for the opportunity to read this book.

Excerpt:

He stared hard, communicating his displeasure with a lift of his dark brows. “What can I do for you?” His question was gruff, and she sensed his dragon, barely leashed under his human skin.

Mei sat across from him in a black chair without invitation. A gray tie coiled in a perfect circle on his desk, the edges perfectly aligned. She stared at the weave and symmetry of the fabric rather than the overwhelming feeling of being ensconced with him.

“I’ve never been in here.”

He frowned and open-palmed his hands toward the ceiling. “You want a tour?” His voice was sarcastic, and he dropped his palms to his flat stomach, drawing her eyes. She knew what he looked like under the business suit. The images of him naked, strong, in their bed in Paris cascaded in rapid succession, making it hard to breathe. The scent of him, the heat of him surrounded her and she looked at the tie as if it was a lifeline to sanity.

Silence stretched, becoming loud and distorted with numbing white noise, making him too close and too far at the same time. She raised her eyes to his, seeing him staring, waiting for her to speak.

The fax. She had to get answers on Bo Quan. “You’re angry with me.”

“I’m frustrated with you. There’s a difference. It’ll be six years in—”

“I know.” Immediately, the images she’d pushed aside crowded back in her mind and a tight ball of longing, edged out her current fear. He was supposed to have been a fling for her, an escape anthem, a declaration of independence. Then she’d woken to find his binding dragon mark on her hand and all her hopes for a new life had disappeared.
