Book Description:

Curiosity is a dangerous thing and temptation a death wish. Especially for someone like Vivienne with her complicated past and closely guarded secrets. Yet when she has a chance to get near the enemy because of a sexy dragon shifter haunting her dreams, she doesn’t think twice. Even if it means seeking out a paranormal dating agency and tagging along incognito to scope him out as her best friend goes on a date with him.

Kage knows within minutes of meeting Vivienne that she isn’t who she pretends to be. As the right hand man of the enemy, it’s his job to figure out if she’s a threat. More so, if she’s a risk to his hidden agenda and well laid plans. Soon enough, he realizes the only danger she poses is to his hardened heart. After all, there’s no defense against the scorching desire dragons feel when they find their long lost mate.

Julie dashed all
hope of close contact with Viv when she sat between them. Soon after, the only
waitress in the joint leaned over their table far enough to offer an ample view
of her cleavage as she batted her lashes at him. “What’ll ya have, handsome?”
Kage gestured at
the girls. “Ladies first.”
“Wine’s fine,”
Julie said.
“Long Island
Iced Tea, please,” Vivienne murmured. “Double the tequila.”
Liquid courage?
Julie’s eyes
widened on Viv before she spoke to the waitress. “Something to munch on too,
“Sure.” The
waitress tossed down a menu. Her eyes never left Kage. “And you, sweetheart?”
“Whatever you
have on tap’s fine.” He winked just to see if Viv reacted. “The stronger, the
Viv didn’t
react. Not outwardly. But he got the impression the waitress had a target on
her back.
“So, Julie.”
Kage rested his arm on the back of Julie’s seat, yet another test to see how
her assistant would react. “Tell me more about yourself.” He offered a casual
smile. One designed to cultivate trust. “Running a P.I. business sounds
“It does…it is.”
Julie nodded. “Very intriguing.”
“I’d love to
hear more.”
“Yeah, sure.”
Julie began pressing the pad of her thumb against the edge of the table as
though trying to pinpoint how to spin her bullshit tale. “It’s…complicated.”
As complicated
as not having researched her lie before telling it.
“Complicated, how?”
just…well, you know…”
He warmed his
smile even more. “I’m afraid I don’t.”
Julie swallowed,
her eyes glued to his as she tried to come up with something.
complicated because it’s detective work,” Viv cut in as the waitress plopped
their drinks down, didn’t bother with a food order but flashed five fingers at
him, winked then sauntered off. He supposed that meant she’d be available for
sex out back in five.
Figure the odds.
“Well, then,
tell me about detective work.” He grinned at Viv. “Is it as boring as it
sounds?” A languid grin curled his lips. “Or can you make it sound exciting?”
He didn’t miss
the catch of her breath.
“I suppose that
depends on what you’re investigating,” she replied before she brought the straw
to her lips and sucked.
He’d been around
a lot of beautiful women who offered to do all sorts of creative things with
their mouths, but nothing compared to the way Viv worked a straw. A bolt of
lust slammed into him as her sexy-as-sin lips wrapped around that little bit of
plastic and sucked up over half her drink.
There was no
stopping his arousal.
Or his low
He didn’t care
who she was or if she might have been planted by the enemy, he wanted her. And
it didn’t matter where. His eyes skirted from the bathrooms to the rear
entrance to the damn linen closet. Then his eyes dropped to the table. All it
would take was a little dragon magic, and he could bend her right over this.
None would be the wiser.
And if she

Julie’s eyes were wide as saucers on him, and Viv had gone perfectly still. Too
still. That’s when it hit him. A scent unlike any other. Sweet. Spicy.
