Luca Wessex is Dragon Spawn. Son of a human mother and a Red Dragon father, he has been trying his best all his life just to survive and get by. His father is abusive, his mother is dead, and most recently, a vicious and dangerous group of neighborhood Spawn have begun trying to recruit him as a member of their gang. When a pushy and gorgeous Golden Dragon named Dmitri appears, full of questions about the gang and his role in it, Luca tries to cooperate, but he’s no snitch. Suspicious, the gang attacks Luca one evening while he’s working, and he’s rescued by Dmitri, who then kidnaps him and—for his own safety, he claims—takes him to his home in what some say is the most remote spot on Earth, an area of Russia called the Kamchatka Peninsula.

Dmitri has come home with a treasure, because what Luca doesn’t know is that he isn’t a Spawn at all but a species called a dragonet and the very last one of his kind. Because of a mysterious prophecy, Dmitri has discovered the beautiful boy’s life is in danger and he wants desperately to save him. But Dmitri is up against not only another Dragon, but also a powerful mage. Dmitri takes Luca under his wing—literally—and they begin to navigate a minefield of love and dangerous ancient prophecy. For the first time in Dmitri’s life, something is becoming more important to him than treasure, if only he can hold onto it.

The Last Dragonet is the first book in the Dragon Prophecies by authors Shannon West and Susan E Scott.  I love this start to what promises to be a great series.
Luca is meeting with the dragons.  He is trying to keep the meeting on the down low. So this meeting is in a gay leather bar. Who would think such an important meeting would be here right.  The dragons don’t look very thrilled about the venue either.  While dragons tend to be pansexual they were also easily offended and could beat the snot out of him.
Luca himself is a dragon spawn. He has a cool patch of scales on his back that looks almost like a tat. Half pure dragon half human, and one foot in each world. Kinda like being the kid no one really wants but has to put up with.
Dimitri and his brother are both golden dragons. Good looking.  Some kind of government agents.  They were there to stop some bad spawns from causing havoc.
Dimitri soon finds himself drawn to Luca. He knows he is the one for him but they both are in the middle of sensitive talks can they find love in the most unlikely of places and stay alive long enough to have it?
I really enjoyed this story and want more! Bring on the dragons and those who love them.
