Although short and sinful Jory Strong's Dragon Games packs quite a sensual punch. This book in another installment of her Supernatural Bonds series. Once again we visit Drake's Lair where some earlier characters have gathered for a night of gambling and fun. Lyra, the heroine, doesn't know that dragons are real and thinks the men at Drake's Lair are role-playing. Lyra has joined the group for one reason only, hoping to win enough money to save one of her student's families from being homeless.
Tielo, dragon and partner in Drake's Lair have devised a plan to get human mates for his fellow dragon shifters. He has no intention of finding himself shackled with a mate. His friend Pierce though as other ideas. He thinks he knows the perfect woman for Tielo, but he's not going to just hand her over. Instead, he's going to tempt his friend and invite a few others worthy dragons to make Tielo really work for Lyra's love. By the end of the night, Tielo knows that if he doesn't win Lyra his life will never be complete. However, Lyra isn't sure what the rules of this particular game are and when she finds out Tielo isn't entirely sure she will want to play.
Though he has no intention of shackling himself to a female, Tielo has devised a poker invitational to bring potential human mates to Drake’s Lair for his fellow dragons. Club co-owner Pierce has also set a plan in motion—to see his partner mated. When their two schemes collide in the shape of Lyra, smoke and flame result, literally.
For Lyra, the invitation to an evening of high-stakes poker is the answer to a prayer and her chance to help a family in need. But her confidence wavers upon entering Drake’s Lair, where the male members role-play as dragons and brazenly display their sensuality.
None are as dangerously distracting as Tielo. The gold-and-silver “dragon” could be her downfall, and not just at the poker table. Because despite his attempts at denial, overwhelming need and lust blast Tielo the instant he meets Lyra. He’ll have her beneath him before the night is done, his essence inside her, his claim undeniable.
For dragons, mating is no game…and Tielo is playing for keeps.
