Natasha Clayton is out of time and options. The High Council of Others considers her dangerous; a ticking time bomb, because her powers haven’t manifested in the usual time frame. If she wants to avoid incarceration (for her own good), or death (for their own good), then she desperately needs to land this job. Dragon shifter, Blain Barrymire, came to Earth many years ago in search of his mate. While on Earth he has built a powerful empire, and now, after ‘firing’ his previous personal assistant, he finds himself in need of a new one. He’s shocked when applicant N. Clayton is not only female, but Other, and most importantly, she’s his mate. Their new love is tested time and again, as they have to overcome an attempted murder, the Council of Others, and finally, a war in Blain’s homeland.
