Sure, it was hotter than hell and drier than a popcorn fart, but it was home. Not just a place on the map, but in her heart where it really mattered.
Coming back to West Texas for Elle Burntwing was a mixed bag of tricks. Sure, it was where she’d grown up, where she’d had her first beer, her first kiss, ridden her first horse, and raised all kinds of hell…but it was also where her family had tragically and with no explanation been taken from her.
Stepping back on the sandy soil of home, the plan was simple (1) get her client outta hot water, (2) find the person responsible for her family’s murder, and keep herself from falling in love with a Dragon. No worries, right?
Family meant everything. It was all he’d ever known, and as the oldest son of an oldest son and a Guardsman, Gage took his job as Protector very seriously, even though his four younger brothers knew every one of his buttons to push and laughed as they did it.
Seeing her walking into the Courthouse changed everything. With her in his arms, he saw forever. All he had to do was slay a centuries old flying menace and convince the One the Universe made for him that he wasn’t an arrogant, know-it-all Dragon, but instead, her One and Only Mate. Piece of cake, right?
With more on the line than his love life and the scales covering his backside, Gage MacAllen is about to learn the true meaning of ‘Destiny will always find a way’.
Can he thaw out in time to join the battle?
Will she save the day without him?
Will the Fanatical Feathered Freak finally be brought to justice?
And…who in all that’s holy is the Dragon trapped in the ice?
Only the Great Creator and the Universe know the answers, and as usual, neither one is talking. So, Take a load off, Grab a cold one, and Get ready for one Helluva story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love those sexy MacAllen Brothers....

At first look you wouldn't think that Elle who is a defense attorney and Gage a cowboy would be a good match. But they are, her rain bird and his dragon/ wolf seem to be a match made in the stars.
Really fun read, with laughter, some sorrow and a surprise or two.

Another fine melding of different cultural mythologies.
I used to know more Native American stories, but it appears that I don’t remember as much as I thought. However, she paints great word pictures to help me visualize these characters.
I wish his wolf had made more of an appearance.
Shirley Ngapo-Simpson 5.0 out of 5 stars Her Rain Bird's dragon wolf man Reviewed in the United States on February 8, 2021 Verified Purchase Elle had no idea that when she went back home to defend an accused client that she would meet her dragon mate. Gage never imagined that by going with his father to court that he would find his rain bird mate. Readers will love another great read from Julia featuring another of her guardmen and the wonderful mates. I heartily recommend this book to all.
