Border Lair

Dragon Knights, Book 2

I read this story a while ago and was thrilled to see it rereleased. I couldn’t wait to see what changes, if any, were made. I quickly became enthralled with dragons, knights and slithery things. Court intrigue was interesting and a glimpse of a woman of mystery only increased my desire to stay in this world. The society isn’t what we would consider conventional with two knights always claiming the same woman but it works in this unique society where knights and dragons are connected.

Adora follows her daughter into the Border Lair. She doesn’t expect to find love again but does find herself attracted to Sir Jared, the leader of the Lair. Jared has had his own heart ache and isn’t interested in finding love. This all changes when Lord Darian makes a dramatic escape from his homeland to warn the Draconian people of the plots going on and being made. Lord Darian is shocked to find himself attracted to Adora but he also values his friendship with Jared. Though knights are use to sharing, Darian isn’t a knight. Can they work something out?

Though this is definitely a romance, it is also a fantasy. A very different world with rules that reflect a society that is ruled by dragons allows you flights of fancy and bouts of sexual frenzy.

Though this is the second book in this series, it can be read with having read the first book but the first book will better introduce you to the world where this story is set.

Book Blurb for Border Lair

Hope returns to all dragonkind as enemies become allies…and lovers.

As a young widow, Adora raised her daughter by herself, never dreaming that love could cross her path again. But now that her girl is married to a pair of dragon knights, Adora’s eyes are opened to all the possibilities the Border Lair has to offer…including two handsome men who catch her eye.

Lord Darian Vordekrais is about to turn traitor, giving up his title, his lands, and his home in order to warn the dragons and knights of his treacherous king’s evil plan. But after he meets the beautiful widow, his sacrifice seems worth the cost. Meanwhile, Darian’s old friend Sir Jared, who lost his first wife and child to treachery, is shaken by his own intense attraction to Adora. But Jared’s broken heart is frozen in solid ice. Or is it?

As war looms on the horizon, the knights and dragons of the Border Lair rise to the occasion. New allies rally to their side, and romance blossoms and grows even as evil invades the land. The knights and dragons must stand fast against the onslaught, the beautiful woman of royal blood bringing them hope, healing and love.

Warning: This book contains a couple of meddling, matchmaking dragons who won’t stop until two sexy knights realize the lady of their dreams can love them both separately and together. Ménage a trois and a bit of exhibitionism compete with the dragons for smoking hotness.
