About the Book:

Cara Truman is a pint-size pistol whose inquisitive nature has gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion, but this adventure took her farther than she ever expected – on a journey out of this world!

Trelon Reykill thought he had his hands full. A militant group of Curizans had captured his brother Zoran, and he was busy trying to fortify the Valdier defenses against the Sarafin Warriors, even as his dragon was roaring for him to find a mate. He was furious about the first, excited about the second, and pissed about the last. The last thing he expected to find on the primitive planet his brother has taken refuge on was his true mate. 

Now, he has a whole new set of problems… capturing Cara long enough to make her his. His symbiot loves her, his dragon wants her, and he can’t catch her. On top of all that, someone is trying to kill her. 

Internationally acclaimed S.E. Smith presents a new action-packed story full of romance and adventure. Brimming with her signature humor, vivid landscapes, and beloved characters, this book is sure to be another fan favorite!

My Review:

This was such a fun book! After reading Abducting Abby, Book 1 of this series, I knew I had to read more. Again, although I started reading the paperback book, I went ahead and purchased the audio version as well. The humor and fantasy made my long drive so much more fun while listening to this book.  I highly recommend the Audible version.

Cara is an energetic, fiesty, inquisitive, brilliant little gal who can certainly put a dominating Dragon Lord in his place!  I loved her character!

Although a bit of the first book is recapped from Cara's perspective, I still strongly advise that you read Book 1 before reading this one. As for me, I'm off to find Book 3 of this series!!

Note:  I met the author, Susan Smith, at the Coastal Magic Book Convention back in February. What a delightful lady and a fabulous story-teller!! She gifted me the paperback book and autographed it for me, something I will treasure for years to come.
