He has to choose—love or honor—because he can’t have both.

Elle may be a Davenport, but she’s finding she enjoys life as a mostly-gray sheep of the Davenport family. She kicked off the Daven Bio uniform and now works for their corporate enemy—Cole Pharma, now headquartered in Preor Tower. She’s got massive, muscular, winged aliens surrounding her from sun up to sun down. But there’s only one Preor warrior who throws her world into a tailspin—Ivoth sen Pezet’li. Strong. Sexy. Sinfully seductive. Hers? No. They don’t share the Knowing, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting him. Bad.

Ivoth made a vow to his sire—the sen Pezet line would not end with him. And yet, when he speaks with Elle, scents her skin, and feels her curves against his hard body, he does not know if he can let her go. He craves her more than any other—perhaps even more than he desires to fulfill his vow—and he knows he must make a choice. Keep Elle and never have dragonlets or leave her and lose his heart forever.

Ivoth has to make a choice, but first, he has to keep Elle alive. Someone wants her dead and Ivoth is determined to kill them first. He only prays to Syh he is successful.

I thoroughly enjoyed Ivoth the latest installment in Erin Tates’ Dragons of Preor series. With this story, Ms. Tate showed mating is not just based on “the knowing” but also the heart.
Ivoth has made a promise to his dead father, but when his heart choses Elle, his promise and his honor are at risk. I loved seeing Ivoth with Elle. He was so formal, but then so was she. Her upbringing made it difficult to be less than perfect however with Ivoth she was able to be true to herself. That is until she tried to protect her hear and Ivoth. Ivoth is struggling to accept that he feels more for Elle than he should. There is no “knowing” so she is not his mate, or is she? Can he give up the idea of family and will Elle let him? Both Elle and Ivoth had hard decisions to make but would love guide them? With this addition to the Preor series, Ms. Tate gives us a story that focused on the growing friendship between Ivoth and Elle; a friendship which morphed into something more. Elle and Ivoth had to lose in order to win but would they survive the challenge? Ms. Tate takes us on a journey that is full of emotional depth, laughter and love.
