You cannot escape your fate. Everyone has heard tales of the runaway bride. I did not runaway I was taken.
I was finalizing all the last minute details on my wedding day without the wedding planner who did a no show. If that wasn’t enough, the caterer parks clear across the parking lot and has questions for me. But I don’t think he is the caterer. The man who steps out informs me that I am marrying the wrong dragon. What?
She was blissfully unaware of who or what her fiancé is, Corbin Pontious has kept his true self hidden from her. I had to get her away from him. I had to save her. I am out of time and she doesn’t know that dragons exist. I am just going to tell her she is marrying the wrong dragon and take her. What could go wrong?

Redrabbitt VINE VOICE 5.0 out of 5 stars YOU’RE MARRYING THE WRONG DRAGON Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2022 The story is the second in the trilogy of Reign of Fire and picks up with Eden Sommersby’s wedding to Corbin Pontius. Things aren’t as they seem, and nothing is going right for her wedding. When Ridley Monroe arrives early for the wedding with support from his clan, he realizes that Corbin and his minions have nefarious plans. Helping Eden rescue herself from a terrible fate, a called-off wedding, and discovering his fated mate comes with fulfilling obligations before pleasure. Convincing Eden that she is his fated mate won’t be easy—she feels he has ghosted her. She is hurt and angry, and these two must reconnect, where Ridley shows his dominance and Eden submits to him. The Cherufe intends to rise again, and it will take the heart of a drakania queen and dominant dragon to win this battle. “I believe in the saying that those who don’t know and understand their history are doomed to repeat it.” “Our love will burn with an eternal fire and we will soar the heavens together, for that is our destiny.” Sarlay: She is yours, but she is mine as well. Ridley: And who might you be? Sarlay: I am she who once ruled here and who followed my sisters into the Rift. We believed we had defeated them, but we were wrong. The Cherufe mean to rise again and this time they must be defeated for all time. Ridley: You are Sarlay? Sarlay: I am she who will join with your eternal fire. Best you take care how you try to claim me. Sarlay: We shall be one. You are not afraid. Eden: Should I be? Sarlay: No. Your courage was part of what drew me to you. When the time is right, and I am needed, call to me and we shall be one. Eden: Who are you? And what is that thing you keep fighting? Sarlay: I am the spirit of Sarlay, and the battle with the beast you have seen was a long, long time ago. We thought we had defeated the Cherufe, but we only forced them to retreat. One has risen and was defeated by Cessene and her mate. Two more will rise. The destruction of one will be up to you and your mate. Eden: In case you missed it—I am currently single and have neither prospects nor plans for that to change. Sarlay: Do not fear. He is coming for you. The story’s plot will have Eden and Ridley reconnecting, but she is angry at him. She isn’t upset about the marriage between Corbin ending, but she feels Ridley has ghosted her. It will be challenging for these two strong-willed souls to find their path together. She may have been dreaming of Ridley, but that doesn’t mean she is ready to forgive and accept him and his dominance. “Give over to me, Eden. I am your fated mate, and we will be as one.” The story is a paranormal battle of good and evil—and not all dragons will fall in the good category. A strong evil force wants to destroy the dragons and humans and reign on earth. The past and present will collide, and Ridley must trust Eden/Sarlay to be part of the battle. Together, they must defeat the Cherufe as a team. I love the angst, passion, and chemistry of Ridley and Eden. She has dreamed of him, of them, and of him being a dragon and a man—and her dreams were erotic. She also heard voices, with warnings, and it didn’t frighten her, nor did it have her accepting it. Either she was going crazy, or things were going to happen, and soon—she could feel it. Ridley: You’re mine Eden. Now and forever. You belong to me, and I belong to you. Eden: You know what they say, while dragons plan, drakaina laugh. While this story doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, and we know who the following two main characters will be—we are given a tiny glimpse into their past, and the story will be their future. That will be the story of Cooper McKinley and Raine.
Sue B 5.0 out of 5 stars This is a captivating, well written second book in series a thoroughly enjoyable read Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2022 This is a captivating, well written second book in series a thoroughly enjoyable read I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the previous first book in this series and I have to say that I was not at all disappointed in this the second book in the same series. The attention to the characters details and back story was diligent as always with this author and it is always a pleasure to familiarise yourself with them as the story unfold. Eden Sommersby A successful and well-respected business owner is set to marry but it is soon apparent to her that the man is not as he appears and this is when she had called in the assistance of Ridley Monroe. She is a wary female that is not drawn in by a male’s ego or good looks and she values the worth of what a person does rather that his new worth or how much he claims to be worth. He is drawn to the man in a way she does not really understand and as she surprised to find that in fact, he is her Fated Mate and that for him there would never be another and this is an extremely important fact. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and am sure that others like me will find that once you begin reading it is impossible to put this book down. I assure you that you will love every moment of this book it is simply a fantastic read. I voluntarily received and review an Advanced Reader Copy I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading any future publications; keep up all the great writing.
