Fainting is a perfectly appropriate response to being confronted by a huge dragon—right?

While humans have been marked for and by the dragons for centuries, they do not know dragons exist. So, tattoo artist and dragon shifter Duncan Strannach faces a unique problem when he scents his very human mate.

Kerry Jo Watson cannot understand the insane attraction she feels to this muscle-bound, broody, and clearly dominant man. She came here to get a tattoo checked, not lust over the artist—or get a job as his receptionist. She's determined to not get involved with the boss.

Duncan needs Kerry's submission of her own free will, and it kills him to keep his distance. The "I turn into a fire-breathing dragon" revelation tends to wreak havoc on a relationship, not to mention the décor. In the end, it's all rather simple. They're dragon mates, and when Kerry accepts the dominance of her Sir, magic happens.

Grab your fire extinguisher, for not only are there dragons, but they are smoking hot in all the right bearded, tattoo'd ways. Swoons. The story grabbed my attention almost immediately. I loved the introductory scene with the drunken hen party because what better time NOT to get a tattoo than right before you get married. From the moment he meets Kerry Jo, there is smoke in the air as the dragon shifter realizes that he's just met his mate. His very human mate.

And then to have her work for him. Hee.

I adored how they seemed to pretend that everything was normal. I mean, most human males' eyes will shift color and shape and smoke will come out their nose, right? If I was Kerry, I'm sure I'd be questioning my sanity or at the very least, my eyesight. Then as their attraction grew for each other, the sparks became palpable along with the fire. And then when the dragon is let out of the bag, it becomes a matter of convincing her to stay. *Spoiler alert* It isn't that hard.

In true Doris O'Connor fashion, when these two finally get together, the sparks are there, the scene is downright scintillating, and even my toes curled.

This story grabs you from the get go. Duncan Strannach is the perfect book boyfriend and Kerry Jo Watson will be envied by all the readers. So, what are you waiting for? Buy it already.

MARKED BY THE DRAGON by Doris O'Connor is a Siren Classic: Erotic Consensual BDSM Contemporary Paranormal Romance, which means there are yummy dragons, an Alpha shape-shifter who does not share and the happily ever after is going to last for a very, very, long time.
