Soulfire by Juliette Cross
In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.
Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.
As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.
Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.
Review by Paulina Woods
This was one of those books I wish I hadn’t read. I mean really wish I hadn’t read. Why? Because when I was done I wanted to read it again and again. Seriously this is a well-written piece of art. I am not usually a fan of first person. I skip over books written in first person but after the first few pages I couldn’t put this book down if the house was on fire. Short but not lacking in any way.
Jessen is any rebellious girl who has been kept in a cage. She wants out and she wants out yesterday. With a father who is trying to force her into an unwanted marriage and a brother who is growing up to be just like him Jessen wants to get away from it all. In walks Lucius, ok more like fly.
Lucius is a dream come true. He has never been with a human and has no desire to start now. At first he tries to deny his dragon and stays away from Jessen but no true predator can stay away from its mate.
Breaking down the walls of prejudice these two form a bond that is unbreakable. I can not wait to see what else this author has in store for us.
