The whole reason Hallie even joined this expedition into the temple hidden deep inside the Sumatran jungle was to escape her demons. Yet the moment she arrives, the temple seems hell-bent on revealing every uncomfortable truth she’s fought so hard to keep hidden—and determined to plunge her into darkness once more.
But this darkness is of another kind. One whose phantom caress leaves Hallie panting for release in the middle of the night, only to awaken chasing shadows.
It’s not enough for just Hallie to awaken, though. She soon learns that she’s meant to awaken others—dragons, no less—by giving herself to the half-man, half-beast whose intense gaze and erotic ministrations truly redefine tall, dark, and handsome.
The darkness she faces now could chase away her own and finally give her a reason to stop running, but only if Hallie can learn to embrace the shadows.
Hallie has many secrets especially about the fact she’s not doing a PhD or a student of any kind but running from a distressing past.
Kol is the keeper of the temple which means he’s been looking after all the sleeping dragons for five centuries.
Kol is a darker dragon and has a upsetting past too so you can tell they hit it off straight away.
More story in this one and less sex but great as always
