Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero are the favorite sons of the great dragon lord of fire. More often than not they get whatever they want. Matt wants to do great things for his people while Jason wants to go off and explore the world. Both can have what they desire, but not until they take a bride and enter into adulthood.

Enter Kat and Gwen, two girls from very different backgrounds. Kat is happy to leave her home when the royal guard comes to bring her to loving arms of her childhood sweetheart, Matt. Gwen on the other hand is livid to be taken from her farm only to be thrust into Jason’s life, and he’s not to thrilled with the idea either. They have one year to find happiness with each other, or else they will be placed at the mercy of the ruthless dragon lord Lynx. Favorite or not, dragon law must be obeyed.

As their nation begins to prepare for war against a neighboring tribe, the brothers find themselves as key components in the battle plans. A dark prophet has had a vision of Inero victory, but at what cost? Both must decide where their loyalties lie and what they’re willing to sacrifice – including each other – to achieve their goals.

Matt always understands her and she only feels safe and comfortable when around him. He tells her she’ll be chosen as one of the Elite and then they will be able to be together. What he doesn’t tell her is that he’s a dragon who can look human…

This author creates a magical world where male dragons rule the world. They take a human shape (a pretty hot one, by the way) and live in the big castle. The two main characters are twins: Matt and Jason. While they are twins, they are not alike. Ms. Jenkins tells you they are “touched”. She doesn’t explain what that means in this book. Twins are not common the in the dragon world and their father has big plans for them.

Ms. Jenkins uses this story to set the platform for future books in the series. There’s a lot of info here that doesn’t seem to tie together and make much sense now but, as the tale progresses in future books, I think the missing ends will all begin to fill in.

When the dragon twins chose mates, the twins are no longer so close. They’ve always been together. Now they have another person to care for. I like the fact that they both want to be in marriage with love. That’s not a common dragon reaction; most males are simply looking for heirs, not love. It’s also fascinating to watch their father groom Matt for a special role. He leaves Jason out of meetings and ignores him for the most part. Surely this will turn into a conflict later. There’s also a smell of a power play coming.

I found the story interesting and enjoyed the dragons. I would have like to have a bit more detail so I was sure I understood the nuances. As it was, I liked this book enough to want to pick up the next in the series and see what good old dad is planning next. I also want to see more of Joshua and Gwen; they are slowly falling in love. So Ms. Jenkins got me hooked anyway, didn’t she?
