For centuries, the immortals knows as the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands, risk his life for the dragons within – and resist the temptations of human love…
Jane Holden has never considered herself beautiful. But when the impossibly handsome Banan casts his gaze upon her, smoldering with sensuality, she feels like the sexiest woman on earth. Banan, however, is a man on a mission. He refuses to succumb to this modern woman’s charms – or his own desires. Two of his warrior brethren have already surrendered to forbidden love. But as the danger closes in, Banan realizes that he needs to possess Jane – mind, body, and soul. For she is more than his match.
She is his destiny…
The next morning, Jane found herself staring at her computer screen without actually seeing it. Instead, she was back in Banan’s arms the night before.Sure, she’d gotten there by making a fool out of herself by tripping. Again.
But never once had she found herself in the arms of a man like him as a result. So virile, so gorgeous.
So completely out of her reach.
Her hands clenched atop her desk. She could still feel the solid, hard sinew of his muscles beneath her palms, still sense the steel of his body as she was hauled – firmly and protectively – against him.
He’d been quick and agile and superbly strong, but not once had he hurt her. His hands had held her tightly but gently, securely but tenderly.
Which was so at odds with the fire she’d seen smoldering in his gray eyes. They had darkened to the color of smoke, and for the briefest of moments, she had thought he might kiss her.
“Jane,” someone whispered.
Jane nearly fell out of her chair she moved so quickly. When she righted herself, she looked up to find Elena leaning her hands on the desk next to Jane.
“Are you all right?” Elena asked, her lips quivering as she suppressed a laugh.
Jane nodded, mortified at her continued gracelessness. “Um, hm. Just fine.”
But she wasn’t. Would probably never be again. Not after Banan’s touch, his voice, his eyes.
Banan has never had a problem using humans to help further hide the Dragon Kings. Not once has he ever thought twice about lying regarding who he was to get what he wants. After all, he’d been one of the Kings who had fought to save mankind.
But all that changes the moment he sees Jane Holden. It’s his duty to get close to her and discover any secrets she might have regarding the Kings, but when her life is threatened, Banan doesn’t hesitate to save her. Or show her who he really is.
