Prince Zayne Godfrey, heir to Edana’s throne, is betrothed to the lone princess of rival kingdom Forath. While his heart is not in the arranged marriage, he will do his royal duty.

When he finds a beautiful stranger cornered by a pack of wolves, he doesn’t hesitate to shift into his golden dragon form to save her. She thanks him by taking one look at him and fainting dead away.

Photographer Adelaide Miller is in England for a career-making shoot when a bizarre jogging mishap lands her in a dangerous, medieval-like world of royals, wizards and dragon-shifting men. Her first instinct is to find her way back, but the fire-breathing prince intent on protecting her threatens to melt her heart.

Zayne’s burning passion for Adelaide not only jeopardizes the fragile peace between two kingdoms, it uncovers a ruthless plot to destroy his family. Remaining together may change Adelaide’s very definition of home—and expose one searing secret that could forever shift the balance of power in Zayne’s world.

Readers who know anything about me, know I have a soft spot for dragons. They are my absolute favorite shifter to read and I’ve been known to devour entire series in a weekend if given the chance. New to me authors always come with a touch of uncertainty when I pick up a book, but  when I find one who has the talent, who brings the “A” game, I feel the need to tell everyone. Kyra Jacobs is that author.

Addie has found herself in unfamiliar territory after nearly getting run over by a car, then falling down an embankment and twisting her ankle in a foreign land. Saved from wolves by something she can only describe as a large golden dragon, she awakes in a house, a time, nothing like her own.  Soon she’s at the center of two lands on the brink of war and falling in love with a man, a dragon, who is already betrothed to another.

If you’re a reader who loves dragons and who loves Outlander, Dragons Among Them is definitely a book you need to pick up. Addie, though in a time and place nothing like her hometown in Indiana, is a strong heroine who doesn’t bow to anyone. She’s outspoken and funny and puts Zayne in his place at every given opportunity. I adored her. Acclimating to such a time would be difficult for anyone, but she does an incredible job of not being a whiny, helpless female.

Being betrothed to a woman he does not love, Zayne finds himself at odds over the adorably feisty Addie. His dragon has no problem calling her his mate and calling on his protective nature to keep her safe from those in the feuding kingdoms who wish her harm. He’s smart, he’s gentle and he’s exactly what the lonely Addie has been wishing for. He was the perfect mix of alpha male and gentle nurturer. Sexy and strong, Zayne is a hero a reader can root for. Gah, I just loved him and all his dragon-y goodness!

For a reader who generally dislikes anything remotely historical, I found myself hooked from page one all the way to the happily ever after. Not a single sentence of this one was boring or didn’t keep me interested and engaged in every way. Sheer perfection.

Inventive, original and entertaining, Dragons Among Them will leave readers chomping at the bit for more from this author!

I give Dragons Among Them by Kyra Jacobs 4.50 stars!
