In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.

Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.

As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.

Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.


~ 4 Soulfire Stars ~

Soulfire is book one in the Nightwing series by Juliette Cross. This is my first read by author Juliette Cross. The sotryline and premise are good. The characters are well defined and the world description is vivid and detailed. 

I love dragon’s and when this one popped up to read, I had to give it a try. Lucius Nightwing is protective of a human, he feels the pull towards her and once his species finds their mate they have no control of it, but the racism is at an all time hi in this world. Morgan and humans do not mix, this brings out problems for this couple. It was interesting to learn about both sides of the story told to children in this world about the King of Dragons and a Princess. The humans have one tail and the dragons have a another. I also enjoyed watching Lucius and Jessen fall for each other. The banter between Jessen and Lucius was fun. 

Soulfire is off to a great start and I look forward to reading more in the Nightwing series.
