Bane and Darek have simple instructions from their Sovereign. Bring in Lily Sinclair. She’s an idana—a succubus—and a threat to their dying species. The two dracambri, powerful dragon-shifters, have Lily’s profile. They know she’s hot as the inferno in her blood. They know the temptation they will face.

Or so they think. Once Bane and Darek get their hands on Lily, she shatters their expectations. Gentle, kind, and unaware of her bloodline, Lily is a rarity like nothing they’ve seen—an angel with the touch of a siren. And unlike the human men Lily’s been evading all her life, Bane and Darek can keep up with her. They can bring her pleasure like she’s never known. But will the bond between the three of them be enough to make Bane and Darek risk everything?

I enjoy dragon shifter stories, so this one caught my eye, not only because it was dragon shifters but because there is a forbidden love aspect since dragons and idanas are not supposed to mix.

Bane and Darek, are both strong male characters that both want Lily, they hadn’t planned to share a mate, but when they meet Lily, they both feel a pull to her as their mate, so it becomes obvious they need to share.

Lily was interesting, because she knows nothing of being an idana, so when the men first meet her and accuse her of being evil, she is completely confused. That adds a fun twist that easily allows the world to be described in a convenient and believable way.

I really enjoyed this story, it’s a very erotic story, and the scenes were well written and very hot. I really enjoyed the flying scenes, it was refreshing for a story with dragon shifters to show them in their dragon forms so much.

It’s entertaining, has the forbidden love aspect and a fated mates story so it moves quickly. I recommend it to fans of shifter stories.
