The Darkest Shifter by Anya Nowlen
Posted by brriske
Sometimes, a dragon can only find himself when he’s hidden away from everything… except for his mate.
Donovan Silvertip has hidden away from the prying eyes of Shifter Grove for as long as he can remember. Nestled in a mountain that’s barely accessible, he guards his hoard and revels in his loneliness, until one day, everything changes. The most gorgeous and infuriating woman stumbles upon him on Halloween of all nights, and despite all the questions Donovan has, one thing prevails above all – he has to have her. Even if it means giving up everything he’s believed in so far.
Sabrina Corrolie is a woman willing to face her fears. You know, like spooky haunted houses in the middle of nowhere… Why she had to pick Halloween to tackle her phobias, she isn’t entirely sure, though. One thing is certain, she didn’t expect to stumble on a real, live dragon in the process! While this dragon is scary, he’s also hotter than the fire he breathes and sexier than sin… Maybe he’s just what she needs to conquer her insecurities?
Or maybe a fairy tale is just too good to be true, dragon or no dragon.
The Darkest Dragon is a holiday novella set in Shifter Grove. It includes plenty of steam and spooky haunted houses, so be warned!
Sabrina has come to Shifter Grover to face her fears. She wasn’t supposed to be alone though. Staying in a creepy house overnight, secluded up a mountain and hearing things, she never expected to find what she found.
Donovan is the last of the Sivertip clan. No one even knows he’s still around. To protect his and his families horde, he really is pretty much trapped in his house. Yet someone has entered the cavern and gotten past his traps. He awakens to a beautiful woman staring at him. A human woman, that is his mate….
I had fun with this novella. I like Sabrinas wit and her kick butt bravery! Not only conquering her fears, but gaining more and overcoming those as well. Donovans sad story broke my heart and him just surviving to protect all he had left, so lonely! Happy endings make me love this even more. It was a fun, quick, fantasy romance that I would recommend.
