He is as cold as ice. She is the salvation that will melt his heart.
When Endora is faced with her daughter’s terminal illness, she takes the only chance she’s got. She braves the potential risks and signs a mating contract with the Delradon Draekon Lords, intent on using the payment to buy the aliens’ cure to save her daughter’s life.
Lord Aldric Darragon rules over his land with an iron fist until one day the only woman who is genetically compatible with him agrees to his offer of mating. As his all-consuming passion for Endora explodes, an ancient threat looms heavy over humans and Delradons alike. With the lives of everyone he cares about hanging in the balance, Aldric has to fight the demons of his past if he wants to defeat the enemies of the present.
This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW.
Touch of Ice by Mary Auclair is Book One in the Dawn of Dragons series and it is a spectacularly entertaining read!
I truly enjoyed this epic style storytelling. (Think slightly-more modern Lord of the Rings with a little dystopian Game of Thrones flavor).
We meet Endora, our heroine at a life changing crossroad and Aldric, our yummy dragon riding hero that is about to have his (well, our) world turned on its axis.
The characters are well written and highly emotion evoking. This is one of those reads that will run you through the entire gamut of emotions from happy and laughing to pissed and tearful. Be prepared to put out the “Do Not Disturb” sign as once you begin reading you won't be able to put the book down.
Mary Auclair writes a stunning landscape of change, the repercussions of intolerance and the power of love.
I highly recommend this read to anyone looking to get away for a few hours of adventure, romance, intrigue, steamy sex- and did I mention the dragons? Who doesn't love a good dragon story!
This is definitely a mature-audience only read. This highly addictive read does resolve (think stand alone) and will have you craving more!
