Caught up in the supernatural slave trade, mermaid Mila Sealight needs saving, not promises of undying love from a cursed fire breathing shifter. But allies are scarce, making a down-on-his-luck dragon her only hope.
When dragon Niall MacTeine boards the slaver boat with his brothers, he knows they are going to save people, he just never expected to be rescued himself. He’s been cursed a long time and has started to give up hope.
Everything changes when Niall is thrown overboard while fighting the slavers and Mila gives him the ‘kiss of the sea’ to save him from drowning. That’s when it hits him—she’s the key to his freedom.
But breaking the curse that locks him in his human form requires trust and an open heart. Neither of which Mila gives lightly. Niall will have to prove he’s worth the risk in order to claim his fated maiden. And he will pay the ultimate price in the process.
It was fast paced and the adventure kept moving. I really like the relationships between the characters.
