Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy.
She’s struck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.
Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her…
When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.

This was one of the more lax reads in the series, a blessed break in all the heartache and action-packed danger. Ezra doesn’t exactly live a danger-less life, but when you compare his isolated home to the places his own brothers have been to just to stay alive… his home begins to look a little like paradise. No bullets. No bombs. No killer artifacts- oh, well. He almost had the perfect haven, ’til Sam ended up in his territory.
I really enjoyed the writing style and the plot. Ezra is a chill, solid man that showed in his other brothers’ books, and I’m glad it continued in his own. I fell hard for him for a distance, and seeing him finally get his own book with a heroine of his own made me smile a little longer in the duration of reading this. I thought Sam was a perfect compliment, a passionate woman whose only weakness was easily catching hypothermia when reckless around the ocean front. Their relationship and how it built up was adorably sweet, and I loved how serious the situation could be and still make me feel like I was reading a light-romance novel. It was trippy, to say the least.
The tone was perfect, I thought, a nice reprieve from the usual don’t-die mood. For once the bad guys were getting all the horrible luck and these brothers were getting the break they deserved. It was sweet, hot, engaging, and an overall satisfying experience I think all dragon fans and paranormal romance lovers should enjoy.
