At 457 Preor years old, Jarek sen Claron is a dragon ready for his final flight into the skies. This voyage to Earth as the War Master of the third fleet will be his final assignment. Once he has helped his fellow Preors secure human mates, he will return to Preor before the madness of loneliness overtakes his mind.
That all changes when he meets Melissa. Human Melissa with her sparkling eyes, bright smile, and body that would make any hot-blooded male drool. Unfortunately, she never registered as a Preor mate hopeful. No matter, the Knowing stretches between them and there is no way she can resist him. Until she does.
Jarek wishes to give her the choice to mate him, while everything inside him screams to take Melissa beneath his wing, now. No choosing necessary.
But should he draw her to his side when his enemies are circling? Many males do not believe the son of a Preor mass murderer deserves to have a mate. Can he survive the coming battles? Or will he die without tasting sweet Melissa’s lips? FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
This was offered under Audible Romance package so of course, I had to read it, Alien Dragon shifters, HELLO?! Could anything be better? This is set in the same world as the Ujal, which I have read books one and two. Not sure why I didn’t finish that series. I will have to rectify that. Jarek is the War Master of the Preor fleet and is overseeing the mission for his Preor warriors, to successfully find mates in human females. He is not there to find a mate for himself and has long given up on that prospect. So when Melissa is on his ship serving as Nannie to the Ujal and triggers his “Knowing” which is a Preor’s recognition of its mate. All hell breaks loose. Jarek gives the backstory to the rest of the series, and I strongly recommend reading or listening to them in order. I like Todd Mrozek’s Narration he has a great range. Mandy Lane is excellent at female characters, but I am not a fan of hers when she is voicing male characters. I would have loved to see this done as a duet. Overal this was a fast-paced, fun and exciting sci-fi romance; I am giving it four Boundless Stars.
