Nothing says big and bad like a fire breathing Dragon.
Elsbeth needed help. Big, bad help. The only solution she sees is the reclusive Drake. The only man brave enough to dare the Forbidden Forest. He might be rather rough around the edges, and heart stopping handsome in that big, tough way of his. But, she will ignore those wide shoulders and the attraction that pulls at her heart. At least she hopes so. After all, she has a kingdom to claim and protect.
Drake had enough problems of his own. The last thing he needed in his life was a pampered princess. But, the princess unknowingly claims an ancestral promise. He is duty bound to help her. Duty bound to protect.
The Forbidden Forest will be easy. Around this woman, taming the beast inside of himself might be impossible.
