Night’s Awakening ~
Meet the hero ~
Guy is wholly unprepared for his life to be shaken to its very core when he saves a woman who has trespassed onto their land and decided to go caving in their mountain. While everyone else is worried what she might have seen, Guy is more concerned with the way he can’t stay away from Elena or her very tempting lips.
Never once has he turned his back on his fellow Dragon Kings, but for Elena he would do anything just to keep her near him. Even if it meant going against everything it was to be a King.
Dragon Color: Red
Power: Erase Memories
Favored Region: Desert
Fueled by dragon magic, the dark immortal warriors were never meant to feel human desire, much less fall in love. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shape-shifting warriors, meets Elena Griffin—a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core—all bets are off…
Having left America to explore the Scottish Highlands, Elena suddenly finds herself lost in a dark cave—alone, injured, and utterly hopeless…until Guy appears from out of nowhere. Is she dreaming her own rescue when she falls into his arms? A man—and a passion—this strong is too good to be true. It’s only a matter a time before she learns the truth about the flames in his heart. And the dragon in his soul…

Her eyes suddenly opened, and Guy clamped a hand over her mouth to keep her quiet. “No screaming,” he said, his voice deep and gruff.
The smell of her hair and the lotion on her skin made him almost forget she was human, almost made him forget why they had spelled themselves from feeling for humans.
“What’s your name?” Banan demanded.
Guy slid his hand from her mouth over her chin and down her throat. He should have released her, but her skin was wonderfully smooth and entirely too tempting. He wanted to touch more of her.
And when she pressed back against him, he kept still, amazed at her warmth and how small and soft she was. Her pulse beat rapidly beneath his hand as she tried to swallow.
“Sloan. She fell. I tried to get help, but I got lost. I think . . . I think . . .”
Rhys lifted his hands palm out and said in a calm voice, “Easy, there. Calm down so we can help. Do you know where you’re at?”
She nodded, her gaze darting to her pack. “Dreagan land.”
“Private property,” Banan said.
She licked her lips and leaned farther away from Banan and against Guy. “I told her it wasn’t a good idea.”
Guy noticed how she was careful not to put any weight on her left side, and the way she held her hand on her left leg signaled she was injured. He caught Rhys’s gaze and motioned to it with his head.
Rhys went to touch the leg, when she reached out a hand and said, “No. Please. I think I sprained my ankle in the rocks over there. Just don’t . . . don’t touch it.”
“We have to in order to get you out of here,” he said.
Her head shook, causing her hair to tickle Guy’s face. He angled his head away from her so that he could watch her expressions.
She was terrified, but she was holding it together.
