The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep. He’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.
But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is just a bonus.
Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And just what the hell is going on down in the basement at night?
Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere...
Reviewed by Sherri:
This was a fun cute read that had a new twist in regards to dragons. As with most novellas you are left with wanting more and that is true of Dead Sexy Dragon. The book is part of a trilogy but they are all novella reads at around 130 pages which I haven’t run across before.
The story focuses on Stig and Cora’s relationship. Cora is the younger sister of Stig’s best friend who was unexpectantly killed a couple of months beforehand. When Cora gets herself into a deadly situation, she runs to the only person she trusts which is Stig.
Stig is a dragonshifter who is a member of “The Brotherhood of the Green Hide”; which is a group of dragons who protect the dragon tribes from “The Knights of St. George,” an old society charged with the destruction of the dragon race. Stig is a bit remote and aloof and Cora entering his home during a critical time for his dragon causes him some issues; namely, his attraction to Cora and her attraction to him.
It took a bit for Cora to grow on me; mainly because I can’t abide the “too stupid to live” heroine and Cora was on the verge of becoming that for based on her actions which got her into the deadly situation.
There are graphic sexual situations so if you are not a fan of those then this is not the read for you. If you are looking for those, then let me say two words “dream sex.” Yowsah!!! If you’ve read the book you will know exactly what scene I am talking about.
Overall, Dead Sexy Dragon was a fun read; with unique world and conflict between the two organizations. If you are looking for something short and spicy, check our Stig and Cora’s story.
