Shannon Dorsey is a elementary school teacher whose biggest challenge is Jake, a belligerent student. When her classroom is invaded by Drelconians intent on abducting her, and not caring who they hurt in the process, Shannon jumps in front of Jake as one of the Dragons tries to burn him. As she passes out, she is taken to another world to fulfill a madman’s plan.
Chosen for her family’s psychic abilities, Shannon is supposed to bond and breed with a Drelconian, a dragon race that is dying out. Adamantly refusing, she is then blackmailed with the lives of everyone on Earth. Unknown to the head scientist, Shannon has already bonded with an outcast Drelconian in her dreams. And he’s coming to get her.
While I had high hopes based on the synopsis, I was a little let down by this story. I felt the character Ryuu was underdeveloped. And Shannon got to be annoying with her bouts of passing out and nausea. I know everyone reacts differently to stress, but she is supposed to be Earth’s savior, no matter how unwilling. The best-defined character, in my opinion, was the bad guy. And boy was he nasty. Perhaps if I had read the prequel I would have gotten more out of the story. While not the best book I ever read, it was entertaining.
Second book in the Accidental Mates series.
Shannon is abducted by the leaders of the shape-shifting dragons who have a plan to mate her with the Drelconian lords, even if they have to watch the process from start to finish. If one sexy candidate doesn’t work, then they’ll pass her to the next and the next or better yet, take her all in one night. But the leaders didn’t count on Shannon being able to connect mentally with the banished silver dragon leader, nor that he would risk life and limb to come for her. Ryuu will kill anyone who tries to harm Shannon or keep her from him, even if it’s his own brothers or the respected elders.
