“Cop-turned-bounty-hunter Gabe Dominguez is hired to capture firestarter Nat Wyatt. For a dragon-shifter like Gabe, apprehending Nat is easy, but transporting him involves more time, energy, and blood loss than he envisioned. An attack from a band of fairies, an out-of-control forest fire, and a showdown at an auction don’t faze Gabe, but Nat’s innocence might stop him entirely.
Since discovering his abilities, Nat’s lost a best friend, a boyfriend, and trust in his brother. Only his love of concerts and card games get him through life without a home. Rumors of the Judge, a giant dragon who once destroyed half of Canada avenging those he loved, provide Nat with hope of vindication. When Nat discovers his captor is the Judge, he thinks he’s finally caught a break. Through late-night conversations and a shared love of music, Nat tries to convince Gabe he’s not guilty.
Can Gabe continue his cutthroat lifestyle, or will he run away with his dragon hoard like he’s always longed to do? Can Nat escape his legacy, or will his be another spark snuffed out by people who don’t understand? The Oracle, the most powerful wizard in Canada, might be the only one who can provide answers.”
Review: “Nat is a fire elemental who is accused of starting building fires where one of the fires killed several people. Gabe being a bounty hunter is given the job to find Nat and return him to Duke, Gabe’s employer. Before Gabe takes the job (not knowing what the job is), he and Nat share a passionate kiss at a house party. That kiss and this new bounty will change Gabe’s life forever.
Nat is a beautiful person. He sees good in just about everyone and wants nothing more then to find a place to call home, people to care for and care for him.
– “You’re a nice person. Everyone is a good person. It’s really rare you find the evil ones.” -Nat
Gabe is a dragon-shifter and loves his “treasures.” Before when he was a cop and now as a bounty hunter Gabe has gone against what was required of him and did what he believed was right.
This story had a little bit of everything in it. Adventure, heartache, love, friends, drama, betrayal, dragons, and even a splash of gargoyle. I only wish we could know more about what happens after the book ends. There are several secondary characters that also deserve their on story.”
