For centuries, the Guardians of Lisbon have kept shifter forces in check — dragons, vampires, and witches. Now, with their powers dwindling, they’re too busy to respond to a lone woman’s cry for help.
Novice dragon, Laura Sampao, always knew her family descended from dragon shifters, but that power — or curse — hadn’t manifested itself in generations. She thought it would never happen to her.
Now, vampires are after her blood, and her last hope is a mysterious, jaded warrior who saves her from a brutal attack. But that’s just the prelude to a far greater danger, giving her no choice but to trust the infuriatingly gruff, handsome stranger who awakens all kinds of hidden desires.
Marco da Silva, heir to an ancient dragon dynasty, has been burned by damsels in distress before, and he’s determined not to get involved. But somehow, he just can’t resist. Before he knows it, he’s spiriting Laura off to his private island hideaway with his inner dragon vowing to keep her safe.
Why? Because his heart isn’t the only reckless force stirring in the shifter world — powerful enemies are on the move too, and they’ll stop at nothing to seize Laura — and take control of an entire continent.
5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure Continues!

Portugal continues a whorl wind adventure around the world for dragon maidens and their fated mates. Laura is already on the run when fate hands her Lisbon, vampires and Marco. The fact that Laura manages to come looking for help by herself and is worried about what she may or may not do is just the beginning of showing how strong and independent she is. Marco was a little rough from the start and yet managed to be dashing. Laura and Marco kept moving at a good pace through the story and there was plenty of adventure with the Guardians. It was enjoyable to see them battle through together.

Have you ever heard a strange voice in your head? your hand. Higher. Of course you have, pick then them up. Some people would say it's your conscious. But for Laura it was her inner beast. An awesome dragron. Her other half that appeared just a few weeks ago in her life at a time when she was not expecting it. But hey, life always throws us curve balls right? Yeah, yeah, she heard the rumors in her family about dragons and even remember or she think she remembers seeing her great grandma turning into a dragron as a child.
Her immediate family sent her on a journey to learn how to understand and come to grips with her new found powers which landed her in Portugal. Not even a couple days in trouble found her. Being chased by another dragron whonturns out to be a bad seed and a vampire she fears for her life. Not fully in control of her new form she takes to the skies as her dragron instructs her to be chased and caught in between the cross hair's of two feuding dragons. But is the other one friend or foe? She quickly find out the new dragon Marco is her alley and knows the one, Duarte who is after her but is his cousin. Do question is, is he really on her side?
Marco , never wanted to get involved with another woman again. He was jaded by a horrible vile she dragon. So wronged he joined the french foreign legion. But that was not the only reasons. He did not want to follow into his family's legacy and take his place and become a Guardian. By all rights he could be a Guardian of Lisbon on his paternal side or Madiers on his maternal side. He wanted to make his on destiny. But he could not leave Laurs stranded. The pull was too strong. Fate played him in a big way. This tell had is packed with betrayal, treason, jealous lovers, steamy love scenes, battle royals and fresh meat royal meat. What's not to like? You do not have the love at first sight like most people want to believe but that's what make this book so good. The characters come together. Trust me when that without me giving you all the details but just tidbits you should want to grab this book and want to find out about the grabbing the back of the necks and breathing dragon fire into the bodies and making people all hot and sealing them so that you just can have an orgasm from that alone. I don't know about you but if I can get that from that alone sign me up. You just have to read how she describes the kiss alone. Not to mention dragon foreplay in the skies...I will end here.

Laura needed a change. Moving to Portugal was in her family history, it seemed right. She couldn't imagine what was wrong with her. Why was she feeling so strange now? Someone was after her, but why. A fight our flight emotion caught in her, why fly? Fly, was that even possible? Once in the air and not dead from falling, she encounters a dragon who seems to be after her. Another dragon flies by, why is this happening to her? Laura continues her flight, this new dragon sends to keep her safe from the other. Will he help her? Marco was feeling an urgency to fly tonight, but why. He sets out, only to find a she dragon being chased by a fellow dragon. He's not up to helping, but he begrudgingly let's this dragon stay with him. What's this all about, he wants to find out.
