Ignazio clenched his teeth. “The f-ck it is. You think I don’t have a stake in this? We’ve been partners for ten f-cking years. You go down, we both go down.” Hot rage filled his gut, but it wasn’t directed at Bryer. The target was the f-cker who’d done this, and the helpless feeling that everything he and Bryer had worked for all these years might be slowly falling apart. He swallowed roughly and glanced at his friend. “I lose you, I lose everything. This isn’t just about you.”
Bryer nodded, his eyes bright with his dragon’s vivid blue showing through. He opened his mouth as if to speak, then closed it again without a word. Blinking rapidly, he turned away to stare out the window at the beautiful countryside speeding past.
“No pressure,” Ignazio said, hoping to defuse the tension.
Bryer sagged in his seat and let out an exhausted laugh. “No pressure? F-ck you, man.”Bell, Ophelia. Hot Wings: Paranormal Dating Agency (Aurora Champions Book 2) (pp. 21-22). MTW Press. Kindle Edition.
Pomona Maurin’s biggest dream is landing a coveted position as personal chef to the stars. She’s busted her ass and put her to-die-for recipes to the test, yet gained zero recognition for her efforts. That is, until Gerri Wilder discovers her culinary talents and knows just the “stars” who need Pomona’s skills the most.
Ignazio Karsten and Bryer Vargas are two of the most famous celebrities on the shifter home planet, Nova Aurora. The dragon shifter duo, known regionally as “Hot Wings,” are the reigning Nova Aurora Arena League champions for several seasons running. When a vindictive opponent breaks the rules and nearly kills Bryer during their championship fight, their streak might just be at an end—and so might their careers.
Only dedicated training and a strict diet will ensure Bryer’s return to health, and Ignazio’s recovery from a deep depression, but even that won’t guarantee the duo will make it back into the arena for the next season. They need a chef with the particular talents to fulfill their dietary needs and still satisfy their hungry dragons.
When they set eyes on Pomona, both men know there’s only one thing on the menu for them. Will they be able to convince their new chef that they want to share more than just her cooking?
