Soon, he finds himself face-to-face with an exquisite swordswoman who holds him enthralled…and sparks passion within his cold heart.
As an Asavori Ranger, Esha has dedicated her life to protecting her people. She trains relentlessly to become one of their best warriors, forsaking everything else. When a treacherous new enemy invades their lands, she vows to destroy it. Esha’s rash decision has her crossing paths with that of a mysterious, handsome outsider. He’s trouble the Rangers don’t need, but she can’t walk away. He awakens desires long buried and dreams neglected. The temptation of their forbidden union is more than she can resist.

“You look deep in thought.”
His head swiveled to the side at the sound of Esha’s voice. She spoke English with a slight accent that he couldn’t quite place. The language she had spoken before was lilting and flowed easily, reminding him of Finnish. Once he caught a sound similar to that language, he was able to understand it easily—though Esha hadn’t seemed thrilled by that. She stuck with English now.
“Aye,” he said.
She released a breath. “I took a chance bringing you here. Outsiders aren’t welcome.”
“Then why did you bring me?”
“Because you survived the attack. I’ve seen what that thing can do to my Rangers. Yet you’re not only standing but appear unharmed.”
Kendrick thought about the soreness that plagued him, something that would never have remained before. “I wouldna say I am no’ injured.”
“You seem hale and hearty.”
He chuckled and glanced at the water. “I’ll admit, I’ve never fought anything like that before. It was more than no’ being able to see it. It was as if…”
“It knew what you were going to do?”
“Aye.” He nodded, holding her gaze. “How many times have you tangled with it?”
Her lips flattened for a heartbeat. “This was my second time. It isn’t easy to track, and we’re experts.”
“We’ve found the same thing.”
That got her attention. “How many times have you fought it?”
“This was my first time personally. My friends have encountered it four other times.”
“Did you lose anyone?”
Kendrick thought about the dragons and the moving burial. “We did.”
“Where are your friends now? Across the border?”
He heard the mockery in her voice and fought his smile. “Is it so impossible for you to believe I’m a dragon?”
“Do you know how many dragons I’ve seen in my lifetime?”
“I doona know. Maybe a dozen? Two dozen?”
“None,” she stated flatly.
Kendrick searched her amber gaze and saw the truth of her words. “I gather you doona spend time near the border.”
“Not because I fear it. We’re needed elsewhere around Shecrish. There has been talk among my people for generations that the dragons are gone.”
