On his way to reestablish an old alliance, Tristan Okora, king of the dragon shifters, discovers a beautiful human female aboard an enemy vessel. He offers his protection until she can be safely returned to Earth. But the more time he spends with Juniper Jacobs, the faster he falls for the little mortal. Meanwhile, amidst the trouble brewing in his kingdom—a terrible rumor that threatens his crown—Tristan must make a difficult decision; accept an arranged marriage with a neighboring princess, or risk everything for the beguiling human.
TEMPTING THE DRAGON KING is the first book in this Shadow Quest spin-off series. And while this series will focus on hunky dragon shifters and witches, there are plenty of cameos from the original series.
And… here I go again. As mentioned in the description, Tempting the Dragon King is a spin-off of the Shadow Quest series. I’ve only read The Demon’s Possession, the first book in the Shadow Quest series. The good news is that it didn’t make a lot of difference in reading Tempting the Dragon King from a confusion standpoint. One of these days I shall follow the rules! (Obviously that day will not be today.) *sigh*
Tempting the Dragon King isn’t a fairytale dragon story. It’s more of a shape-shifter alien story, where the kingdom is ruled by a dragon king and his family. Tristan took over as king after the unexpected death of his father. He had planned on going through with an arranged marriage until June showed up. That’s when everything changed. The attraction took them both by surprise, but it was too strong for them to ignore. Things got even more complicated when rumors were spread in the kingdom that about more than the new king’s love interest. Needless to say, Tempting the Dragon King was more than just a sweet romance, although that was front and center.
There were a few loose ends at the end of Tempting the Dragon King, which means I can’t wait to continue the series.
