With the sexual tension rising between them, reaches incendiary levels; the challenge is on.
DRAGON’S HEART is a fabulous book with a touch of suspense and extremely sensual. I found myself totally and utterly immersed in the story. Jake is a wonderful character that you can not help; but love him. I really liked Sydney too, who tries so desperately hard to keep from giving in to Jake and her own desires, even though she knows he is the first man who has truly appealed to her and wants her.
DRAGON’S HEART by Patrice Michelle is her first venture into the world of suspense and a fantastic job she has done too. DRAGON’S HEART is a thoroughly engrossing and engaging tale that I will be reading again and again.
