Having spent her whole life trying to prove she’s just as capable as her four older brothers, art retrieval expert Ivy Danger has landed the biggest gig of her career, one that will bring in a massive payday for the animal shelter she supports. That is, if she doesn’t die before cashing the check. Even if she locates the stolen art, the violent gang of thieves won’t give it up without a fight. She has one person she can turn to for help—Nash Harris. Security expert, her brother’s best friend…and the gorgeous man of her fantasies who treats her like a kid sister. Not that she’d do anything about her attraction anyway—not when it would screw up her family dynamic if things went sideways between them.

He’s known it for a while…but convincing Ivy is another matter. But first he’ll have to keep her alive when she’s targeted by a dangerous group known for violent retaliation. They’ve worked together before, but she’s over her head with this latest job.

Er hat mehr als tausend Jahre in der Hölle verbracht…

Drake ist ein uralter Drachenwandler, eines der mächtigsten Wesen, die es gibt, doch nach über einem Jahrtausend der Gefangenschaft in völliger Dunkelheit ist er für die moderne Gesellschaft schlecht gerüstet. Wenn Victoria nicht wäre, die süße Frau, die mutig genug ist, sich mit ihm anzufreunden, wäre er verloren. Sie ist klug und wunderschön und alles, wovon er in seinen Jahren qualvoller Einsamkeit nie zu träumen gewagt hat. Er hat ihr vielleicht nichts zu bieten, doch eines weiß er sicher: Er würde sein Leben geben, um sie zu beschützen.

Nur um in den Himmel ihrer Berührung zu sinken.

Sie hat viel gesehen, doch sie ist noch nie jemandem wie Drake begegnet, dem feurigen, faszinierenden Wandler, der ungesehen von den Sterblichen wie ein Feuersturm durch den Himmel rasen kann. Er ist verloren, gefährlich und der letzte Mann, in den sie sich verlieben sollte, doch je mehr Zeit sie damit verbringt, ihm beim Navigieren durch das moderne Leben zu helfen, desto tiefer – und heißer – wird ihre Bindung. Sie freut sich wahnsinnig für ihn, als sie endlich seine Familie finden, doch die Wiedervereinigung mit seinen Leuten bringt beide in unvorstellbare Gefahr. Es folgt ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um herauszufinden, wer sie tot sehen will und wem sie vertrauen können, besonders da die Bedrohung näher ist, als sie es sich jemals vorgestellt haben.
