He’s willing to lose his honor to claim her, but first he must save her.

The Preor emperor bestowed honors on warrior Brukr sen Zak’lu centuries ago—honors he does not deserve. Since then, he has fought to prove himself worthy of the emperor’s support. He works to protect and care for the females within Preor Tower no matter how difficult they make his task. One female constantly disregards orders and makes his duty nearly impossible. Hannah—with her flowing hair, teasing smiles, and generous curves—torments him with what he cannot have. He aches for her like no other, his dragon rages when he leaves her side, but without the Knowing stretching between them he cannot claim her. Or can he?

Genetic modifications have changed Hannah’s appearance, but they can’t change her past. To atone, she steps into the spotlight as a spokesperson for Cole-Daven and moves into Preor Tower. Every day she struggles to convince other humans to accept Cole-Daven’s treatment for Pol Mutation. She also fights her attraction to one specific alien Preor. They’re not mates, but everything in her craves the large, muscular, deliciously tempting dragon shifting warrior.

With her exposure to the public, Hannah now has humans after her. Some want to possess her, others want to torture her, and many want to kill her. That is unacceptable to Brukr and he will tell them so… with his war blades.

Hannah has agreed to be a spokesperson. She believes in the cure offered but she can’t accept the it. To do so would endanger the Preor and the male she has grown attached to. Brukr feels more for Hannah then he should, especially as there is no Knowing. But when he learns Hannah is refusing the cure, can he convince her that he and the Preor can protect her?
Brukr by Erin Tate is the eighth story in her Dragons of Preor series. Hannah has agreed to help convince others to take advantage of the free cure but can’t accept herself. She has secrets and is willing to die to protect her new friends. I love not only Hannah’s determination to do what is right but also her soft heart. She cares for those around her and will do whatever is necessary even if it breaks her heart. I love the strength of this female character from Ms. Tate. I also loved that Ms. Tate paired her with an equally determined male in Brukr. Brukr fights not only for himself but also for Hannah. I enjoyed seeing Brukr give more than he intended each time he sees Hannah. Ms. Tate continues to write stories that are full of laughter and love. Brukr is no different. The Preor are confused by human idioms but sure in their honor. I love the balance Ms. Tate maintains between Preor understanding not only their human mates but their growing emotions. This story is funny and loving. It is a wonderful addition to the series and I can’t wait to see where Ms. Tate will take us next.
