Drakon's Prey (Blood of the Drakon #2) by NJ Walters

Goodreads Review

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

I just love me some dragons.

Another great additional to this wonderful series. I’m so happy I found this series. I’ve read two other books by this author and she knows how to write paranormal romance. With Ms. Walters you get sucked into the story even if you don’t want to but believe me you will. There is a great blend of paranormal with suspense and the world that has been built and the Drakons.

Drakons are half dragon and human sired by male dragons with human mothers. They are hunted down for their blood by the Knights of the Dragon and have shied away from humans to protect themselves they prefer solitude anyway. But the time has come to go on the defence and not the offense.  

I loved Tarrant and Valeriya together. They have chemistry and banter with delectable steamy scenes thrown in. Although they get off to a rocky start as Valeriya’s family business is to hunt Drakons down for a living to get their blood to heal sickness and prolong life. They overcome it all and have their happily for now.

Whereas we got a peek at the end of the epilogue in the book who would be next we unfortunately aren’t so lucky here. I hope it is Ezra the water dragon. The most anti-social bunch of the brothers. I can’t wait to continue with this engaging, fabulous and humorous series.
