“When the auroras sparkle green and pink,
the monster will return…”
Agent Luke Snow knows all too well what it’s like to lose a mate. His last case ended the search and siege—aka death—of his mate’s killer. The hole in his soul remains. When his DSD team lead, Owen, sends Snow on a vacation, he escapes to his remote Alaskan home. After being gone so long, his cabin isn’t as relaxing as it should be. Nightmares and a monstrous ice dragon haunt his nights while a dark-haired human beauty torments his days.
Mackenzie Wilde didn’t think twice when her father asked her to move back to Fairbanks and take over his clinic. Life in the big city isn’t as fulfilling as helping those truly in need. Plus, moving to Alaska will bring her closer to her father and her mother’s people, the Inuit.
When the devilishly handsome Luke Snow shows up at the clinic with a wounded teen, she’s intensely drawn to him. His alpha male personality is exactly what she doesn’t want in a man. But Snow may be the only one to turn to when the nightmares become reality.
I love dragons, so falling for these shifters wasn’t a leap at all. We met the entire crew in Dragon Undercover, and in this one we get to know Luke.
Luke needs some time alone now that the dragon who killed his mate is dead. He has to get himself together or he is useless to the team. Planning on avoiding the village he settles into his Alaskan cabin. While out chopping wood he hears a child in pain, following the sound he finds his friend Yuku’s daughter Angel with an injured ankle. He carries her to the village. Thankful for his daughter’s safe return, Yuku invites him for dinner.
The doctor who comes to check out Angel isn’t who he expected. Apparently Dr. Matt has a daughter he enlisted to take over his practice. Mac was instantly attracted to Luke, which was really out of character for her.
This is a favorite scene when Luke not only realizes Mac could be his mate, but also senses the presence of another ice dragon.
Kirima came into the room and took Mac’s hands. “Thank you so much. You’re too kind to us. Stay for dinner. Tonight is the first night of the lights, and we should celebrate.” She looked at Luke and smiled wide.
“Both of you. You two have to stay.”
No. Luke needed to leave and get far away from Dr. Mac and her intoxicating scent. His dragon paced and panted. He opened his mouth to decline the offer when Angel limped out from the hallway. Her brown gaze met his. “You will stay, right? Mom said dinner’s almost ready. It’s roasted caribou.”
His stomach growled, and he dropped his shoulders and nodded. How was he to tell her no? He couldn’t believe he hadn’t recognized her, though she’d changed a lot since he’d seen her last. He’d missed spending time with the family. It would be rude to walk out the door now, no matter how much he needed to get away from Mac. “You should stay off that ankle.”
Mac faced the girl and frowned. “He’s right. Go sit.”
“Yes, ma’am.” Angel pouted, then asked, “You will stay, too?”
Mac glanced up at him briefly, then to Kirima. Luke’s body tensed in anticipation of her answer. His heart drummed to a fast, yet steady beat. The dragon within paced.
Fucking hell. If she didn’t stay, he’d follow follow her like a crazy-ass stalker.
I’m so screwed.
“Yes, I’ll stay. Not too long, though. I’m pretty tired.” Mac directed Angel to sit on the couch.
The teen rolled her eyes but smiled as she obeyed the doctor. “You have to eat. Doctors need food, too.”
Mac interacted with the family as if they were her own, showing them unconditional love. That alone earned his respect. Even though he had no biological connection to the Inuit people, he and his dragon had claimed them as family and to protect. It seemed the doctor had, as well.
The pang of not belonging punched him in the gut. He stared at Mac’s form as she made a phone call. Her body was covered by the loose lab coat, but he had an imagination. Her long neck set off a perfect, heart-shaped face, and her full lips looked so soft, touchable. Kissable. He didn’t hear a word she was saying, after she greeted her father. Instead, Luke watched how her hair bounced as she talked and how she ran her fingers over the phone in a soft caress.
Yep, he was screwed.
This wasn’t supposed to be happening.
A sharp pain pierced his head, and he reached for his temple. He sensed it as plain as if it were right before his eyes, breathing on him. Another dragon lurked nearby.
An ice dragon like him.
