Blurb: To be loved by a dragon is to be treasured.

A hundred years ago, werewolf Alpha Montgomery took a risk driven by desperation—he borrowed money from the ancient dragon Warwick Ehecatl, putting up the pack lands as collateral. Now the debt is due, and dragons don’t forget—or forgive. Warwick demands Montgomery’s son, Avery, and three businesses as compensation. As an Omega, Avery knows he is basically useless to his pack, so he might as well agree. He soon has second thoughts, though. Warwick is fearsome, and he’s free to do as he likes with Avery.

Warwick knows his race’s reputation, and he even admits some of it is deserved. But he’d rather cut off his tail than let his innocent mate’s light go out. It won’t be easy, but buried deep, there’s something between them worth safeguarding.



I’m a huge fan of dragons so when I saw this one, I HAD to have it! It was actually a very sweet story. It’s about a dragon named Warwick who lends money to Avery’s father with the agreement it’ll be paid back in a hundred years. Unfortunately, when the loan comes due, Avery’s father doesn’t have the money and tries to reason with Warwick. So Warwick demands three of his most profitable businesses… and his omega son, Avery. Avery doesn’t know how he feels about being sold to a dragon but when he first saw Warwick, he knew the dragon was his mate. But there’s a lot that separates Warwick and Avery because not only are they two different species but Avery’s always been sheltered and Warwick’s lived for eons. Being mates isn’t everything, will they be able to work through the issues that come up when they start to get to know each other?
I really liked this one! I liked that it started off showing how powerful and cold Warwick was because it was interesting to see how that changes a bit when he first sees Avery. As for Avery, he’s not happy with his life so he’s excited and nervous what his mating with Warwick will mean. After all, Warwick is a powerful dragon and no one really knows anything about dragons. It was sweet the way Avery cared so much about Warwick as a person and not as a dragon. What I really loved though was how dragon’s didn’t mate for life but Warwick had no issues with accepting the fact that he didn’t want anyone but Avery and he would give up his entire hoard just to have Avery. It was super sweet!!
While I enjoyed this one, I wished we could have seen more of Warwick and Avery getting to know each other. As it was, they were together for a few days and already confessing their love for one another.
All in all, I did really like this one. I loved that Avery was finally free to be what he wanted to be and I loved that Warwick found someone who not only could understand him but also care for him. It was a super sweet story and I’m hoping there’s a short story later so that we can make sure Avery’s father lives up to his promise to Avery. Definitely give this a go if you want a sweet dragon story!

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
