Constance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.
Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers. The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.
Drakon’s Past is the story of the 4th brother, Nic. I feel like I have been waiting for his story forever. Nic is very different from his brothers. He isn’t a recluse like they were, he enjoys being around people, and he is a fire dragon. Nic lives in Las Vegas and discovers a woman who is attempting to sell a dragon statue. However, Jeremiah Dent of the Knights of the Dragon wants the statue as well.
Constance is a simple woman who has a strange talent for finding valuable things among the junk. Raised by her grandfather, she lives a quite life dealing in antiques with her younger sister, Abigail. She can sense that the statues are dangerous or bad in some way. Both Dent and Nic want them, but she can’t imagine that anyone actually believes in dragons! With her sister kidnapped by Dent, Constance will do whatever it takes to get her back. But, she is wildly attracted to Nic and he is the one who is helping her, not threatening her.
Nic’s brothers are in contact throughout the book and I enjoyed that. Even though they live in different parts of the USA, they are in communication and care about each other. Nic and Constance have a bit of a ‘fated mate’ thing going on, but its not quite the insta-love that normally happens and I think a lot of readers appreciate that. The plot is filled with drama and the clash between the Knights and the dragons really reaches a pinnacle. Drakon’s Past gives you the romance you want and the action you need! I fell in love with all the brothers and recommend this series if you like unique shifters!

Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear, How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks, Blade by Alexandra Ivy/Laura Wright…then you will probably like Drakon’s Past!
This was another enjoyable one in the series. I was surprised by his past and what we learn. I’m hoping we get more Drakon’s. Thank’s for the review!
