After being rejected by her snobbish parents when she becomes pregnant without a wedding ring and being thrown aside by the baby’s father, Delaney decides to take her chances and see if she could find a mate with the Preors. Unfortunately her first mate turns out to be a bad catch, even if she didn’t have the chance to really meet him.
When she wakes up in Preor medical room, Delaney finds a second mate, Zadri. Although this one is a great catch, there are those who want to get their hands on her and take her away from Zaire.
Zaire was given up at birth by his parents for not being perfect. He never thought that he was worthy of a mate, but when Delaney comes into his life he isn’t about to let her go.
Zadri is the fifth installment to the Dragons of Preor series. I’ve read a lot of Celia Kyle’s stories and enjoy her witty sense of humor. This series shows a different style for the author as well as adding a sci-fi twist to her normal paranormal theme. Rather than slowing down on the same theme, as some authors do on book five, Celia Kyle is just getting better this book showed more suspense and character development than her previous books.
It isn’t necessary, but for first timers it is recommended that you read at least one or two of the previous stories as this book doesn’t go into as much background as some of the previous editions in this series.
What’s a single, pregnant woman supposed to do when her family kicks her out? Go to Preor Choosing Station Tau and hope a dragon shapeshifting alien is her mate, of course.
Delaney Cole found her mate among the Preor only to watch him die—through his own eyes thanks to the Knowing. Now, what’s she supposed to do when she discovers that her second mate is the male who’d killed her first? It doesn’t matter that he’s gorgeous, that his peach scales invite her touch, and his thick muscles make her fingers tingle with the need to caress him. She shouldn’t want such a violent, deadly male, but… she does.
Zadri was born a son of Syh, orphaned and unwanted, and he never imagined actually havinga mate. Yet, Delaney is his. Yes, he was the one to rip out her first mate’s throat, but now that he has experienced the Knowing with her, he will not let her go. Her lush curves, inner strength, and unborn young belong to him—wholly and until he takes his final flight.
When others attempt to rip her from his life, he will explain the gravity of their error. Slowly. Painfully. He only hopes he can reach her before they escape.
