I’m a big fan of Bianca D’Arc’s Dragon Knights series and really looked forward to reading this story. Unlike most of the other stories this one doesn’t center around a Lair but concentrates on one woman and the two knights that want to claim her. This makes this a wonderful short story for those who love this series and a wonderful introduction to this fantastic series for those that aren’t. There is enough information in it to give a new reader an idea of how Lair families work but there is nothing that would cause a long-time fan to be bored. I found this to be a wonderful love story and though the dragons didn’t fly, the sex was just as hot as always. Better still, a bit more of this world was revealed making it more complex and interesting.
Silla is working on her journeyman’s training as a healer. Members of her craft wonder for at least 10 years practicing. She’s looking forward to stopping at a nearby town when she finds an injured dragon behind the inn. Though she’s never worked on a dragon before, she can’t bear not to come to its aid. Using her skills and her supplies she is able to help and attracts the attention of the dragon’s knight, Brodie. Brodie, as most knights do, recognizes Silla as his mate. He doesn’t plan on letting her go but she still needs to meet Geoff, who will be her other husband. Geoff doesn’t believe in the love at first sight until he sees Silla. But, will Silla leave her profession to join with two men she just met?
What’s better than a knight sweeping you off your feet? Two knights.
Silla is a healer riding circuit on the border, helping those in need. When she hears the pained cries of a dragon in distress, she comes to his aid, using most of her precious supplies to help the badly injured creature.
The dragon’s knight, Brodie, is fascinated by the woman—the miracle worker—who has come to help his friend. She is both beautiful and kind hearted and he quickly realizes she is his destined mate. And if she is Brodie’s mate, she is Geoff’s as well, for Brodie’s dragon was mated to Geoff’s dragon many years ago.
Geoff doesn’t believe in the tales of love at first sight among knights, but he knows that when either he or Brodie finds a wife, they will share her. Hearing about the dragon’s injury, Geoff and his dragon race to help, only to find the dragon on the mend and Brodie in bed with the most stunning woman Geoff has ever seen.
Love at first sight turns out to be real and it strikes them all as they come together and realize that no matter what the obstacles, they are meant to be together. Silla is the missing link that will join their lives and make them a true Lair family.
Warning: Knights like to get frisky and these two are no exception. Beware the passion, playfulness, a bit of bondage and a whole lot of three-way loving with a tiny bit of exhibitionism thrown in for good measure.
