He wants to return to Preor and she wants a job, but you don’t always get what you want.
Lana Cooper is down to her last hundred dollars, has no job, and her clunker of a car has finally clunked out. How has her life become such a cluster of horribleness? Oh, right. A guy. Only she doesn’t get a chance to beg for a job. Nope, one walk along the beach changes everything. Oh, she has a job now… as the mate to a hot, hunky Preor dragon male.
Taulan sen Pavon is anxious to return to his home on Preor. Yes, he’d journeyed to Earth in hopes of finding a human mate, but now… Now he would like to heal in the privacy of his aerie. Wings destroyed and body damaged by an explosion, he has no desire to watch others find joy with their mates while he remains unworthy and alone on a ship filled with thousands. But then he finds Lana. Lana with her alluring smile, sparkling eyes, luscious body, and whose mere presence initiates the Knowing.
Can he live long enough to claim her? Can she see past her father’s prejudice to love him? Both questions are pointless because there are still Preor who despise the joining of humans and dragons. They will stop at nothing to drive a wedge between the races. Including murder.
When Lana attempts to make a new life with deception she finds more than she bargained for. Now she is connected to a dragon who is struggling with his new wingless reality. Can Lana and Taulan move beyond their hurts to grab a future? In Taulan the second story in Erin Tate’s Dragons of Preor series we find out.
I really enjoyed Lana and Taulan. Separately they were great characters and together they fit perfectly. Lana was looking to move beyond her past while Taulan was looking to accept his present. Along the way they found hope and love. Ms. Tate gave us two strong characters that were willing to fight for their future and later learned to fight for each other. The connection between them was real and their problems were just as real but Ms. Tate allowed them to find a resolution that felt natural and believable. I hadn’t read the first in this series prior to reading Taulan and found it was unnecessary to understanding. This story was well written and enjoyable. It is worth your time and money. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Tate has in store for us next in this new world she is creating.
