To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with everything he had to earn his precarious place on the Huracán team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.

Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she finds out, there’s only one man she wants—the one who walks away.

However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera....

Each book in the Fire's Edge series is STANDALONE:
* The Mate (prequel)

Holy smokes! The Boss was a great read, but The Rookie was flipping fantastic! Always an underdog it seems, Aidan had so much working against him from the start and I couldn’t resist cheering every time something good came his way. Sera was a perfect match with her nurturing tendencies and fiery per ...more

This is book 2 of the series but would be ok to read as a stand alone. I am one for following in order and you certainly would miss some of the set up for this story if you don't read the first book.

Woo Hoo! Back with the smoking hot dragons and I am ready for some romance. I loved The Boss and met Sera. She became a character I wanted to know better and Abigail Owen made it happen.

I am so excited to return to the Fire's Edge series with this book! The first book, The Boss, provided a great introduction to all the characters and the fantasy world of firefighting dragons.

It’s pretty clear to us readers that Sera isn’t just your average widow looking to protect her young son, Blake. She’s a dragon mate, and her mate is Aidan. Bada boom bada bing. No mystery there. That being said, it’s still a fun ride to see the process of Sera and the rest of the Huracán enforcers ...more

I didn't quite enjoy this one as much as the first one. The beginning wasn't all that exciting and I'm not sure how much I liked how it all ended. But I loved the mystery behind who was really the one killing the mates and after Sera now. I can't even tell you how many times I went back and ...more
