The reclusive Ian barely participates in life, only doing so when his powers demand that he use them or pay the consequences. It seems that there’s not a single person on this planet who doesn’t want something from him, but the pain and suffering of others is nearly unbearable at times, leaving him no choice but to act.
That is until Wink unwittingly walks into his life, completely unaware that she’s stepped straight into the dragon’s den. Wink is just trying to get home after a long day of work. Her plans for the evening do not include stumbling upon a man with blood on his hands hovering over a dead woman in her hallway.
There are three things that someone in Wink’s position should’ve done in that instance. 1. Slowly back away from the hot, bearded killer and run the other way. 2. Call the cops. 3. Not come back until the scene was safe.
Instead, she stops, takes a picture—drawing the man’s attention to her—and then takes off at the speed of a fat, blind and possibly intoxicated penguin.
Ian tries to let her go, but the moment that she runs, every single one of his predatory instincts surge to the surface and the hunt is on. Ian always catches his prey, this time is no different. What is different is that, for the first time in his life, he is consumed with the need to keep his catch.
Oh, My Dragon is book 3 in the series and while it focuses on a different couple, I really think you need to read them in order. Wink, the heroine, is a cute character (despite her utterly dumb name). She mistakes Ian for a killer and begins to run from the scene when he stops her. Their initial touch starts the mating. Of course, Wink has no idea what is going on or why she has a new tattoo that she doesn’t ever remember getting.
Ian is a side character in the previous 2 books and is seen as dangerous and brooding. Getting to see Ian fall in love was really enjoyable. His backstory is one to pull on your heart strings for sure, so it made it all the more sweet to see him find love with Wink. However, you get plenty of humor too. I think what I always enjoy about Vale’s books is that there is lots of slapstick type comedy in them so nothing gets TOO heavy. Also, the sex between these two is probably the hottest of all 3 stories. Holy Moly!
Pharaoh becomes a key player in this book. He has always been a narcissistic pain in the ass, but his role in the plot to Oh, My Dragon brings more depth to his character.
As usually, Mason Lloyd and Kendall Taylor do a great job. I was not thrilled with the accent for Jean Luc though….I’m hoping if that character gets his own book the accent will be better.
