What’s hotter than an alien with scales? An alien with wings and scales, not to mention a hot body. 

At 457 Preor years old, Jarek sen Claron is a dragon ready for his final flight into the skies. This voyage to Earth as the War Master of the third fleet will be his final assignment. Once he has helped his fellow Preors secure human mates, he will return to Preor before the madness of loneliness overtakes his mind. 

That all changes when he meets Melissa. Human Melissa with her sparkling eyes, bright smile, and body that would make any hot-blooded male drool. Unfortunately, she never registered as a Preor mate hopeful. No matter, the Knowing stretches between them and there is no way she can resist him. Until she does. 

Jarek wishes to give her the choice to mate him, while everything inside him screams to take Melissa beneath his wing, now. No choosing necessary. 

But should he draw her to his side when his enemies are circling? Many males do not believe the son of a Preor mass murderer deserves to have a mate. Can he survive the coming battles? Or will he die without tasting sweet Melissa’s lips?

Jarek is book one in the Dragons of Preor series. It’s hot, sweet, passionate, and emotional.

I did notice that the Dragons of Preor appears to be a spin-off from the Ujal series, which I have not read yet, but that didn’t take away from the story. It can be read as a standalone, but we do have references to events in the Ujalseries and a number of characters from that series cross over.

This series has an interesting world, concept, and how one finds their mate. I like that the dragons while in man form have wings, but also can shapeshift into a full dragon.

Their is a little conflict that arises in the Preor race and with the human women. This adds to the emotions and build-up. I liked that Jarek and Melissa don’t hop into bed right away even with the Knowing. They take the time they need to get to know each other as individuals. Especially since they both carry guilt for something that they didn’t do, but feel it’s their burden to carry. Once they do jump into bed, it’s steamy and sensual.

The story was satisfying and the romance was well developed. I had a delightful time with this story and look forward to continue the series.

Rated: 4 Stars
