Lorenda Christensen is a new to me author and one I will continue to follow. She wrote a storyline that flows and plots full of intrigues. The world building was concise, and not one time did I feel lost. I simply loved it from the beginning to end.

Ms. Christensen’s dragon world is not your typical dragon story. They are not mythical, nor are they from ancient times. World War III has passed, and human technology has come to bite them in the ass.Due to epic fail of test tube research, Dragons now exist and rule the earth. Though they try to live with humans in a symbiotic relationship, well, they really still rule the land.

Myrna Banks is one of the very few humans that can communicate with dragons. I like Myrna with her job as translator she has the skill to arbitrate issues between humans and dragons. Though the job can be bloody and dirty, she does it well and enjoys doing it. Well here’s where she grows some balls, not only she took a job to facilitate communication between two dragon lords, she agreed to work with her ex boyfriend on this assignment. And anyone knows that’s a mission one broken hearted gal should never have to endure. She will finally find out why this sexy of a man has left her to begin with.

Myrna and Trian are sexy together. I love that they had chemistry they could not resist. Ms. Christensen did a great job with their romance and the steam factor in their relationship. The funny banters, humorous scenes and even the action scenes were impressive. I could not put this book down!

I can’t wait for the second installment of this series called Dodging the Dragons. No release dates set at this time, but I’m hoping for sooner than later.
