"Follow the rules or win the woman?"

Aiden Paytah has spent his life proving himself in a world
where familial ties mean everything. This dragon shifter
firefighter has finally earned a place in the Huracán team,
though he fears he will always be THE ROOKIE.
Sera Morrison had endured a lot in her young life. She had
lost her parents and her husband leaving the single mom to
raise her precious son and run a winery. As if that weren't
enough, she finds herself as the destined mate to one of the
dragon shifters, but which one? It is very rare, but she
carries three different marks on her neck.
It doesn't matter which one of the shifter she wants because
the Alliance Council has its own agenda. One of the marks
could save their king, and despite the choice supposedly
being hers, they will do what is best for their people. Save
THE ROOKIE is amazing! The pace is fast, and the characters
are fascinatingly realistic. The guys clown and throw barbs
at one another and treat Aiden as any group would THE
ROOKIE. Sera knows about shifters because they had saved the
winery from a crazed dragon's fire, but she had no way of
knowing that she could be one of their mates. Of course, she
was more, stronger, and a surprise to everyone. This kind of
twist is something that one can expect in an Abigail Owen
book where she just takes her readers for an amazing ride.
You will have to read this edition of the Fire's
Edge series to find out all about the team, the
members, the rules they keep and break, and what makes Sera
different and watch this romance take flight.
It seems to me that though the Huracán team are the human
protectors from their kind who have gone crazy, they are
usually treated as second class members. Even when they do
what is expected of them; follow societal rules, like
sending Sera to the Alliance for the mating protocol,
someone has their own plans, and the guys are screwed. The
big guys don't follow the rules so you cannot expect our
guys to do any differently.
There is a bit of sadness at the end. It does fit when you
realize that the shifters can only find one woman and trust
that they will survive their dragon breath. Some shifters
have gone rogue giving up the rules they don't believe in
any longer, and some go a little crazy. Here's hoping that
all find some kind of redemption in the next life.
If you love dragon shifters who try to do what is expected;
a woman, young mother who totally blows their minds in many
ways; a steamy yet sweet romance; intrigue and surprises all
wrapped up in an amazing "can't put it down" read, then THE
ROOKIE will be what you need.
To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself
worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with
everything he had to earn his precarious place on the
Huracán team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or
afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total
loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.
Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short
order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery
alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the
discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she
finds out, there’s only one man she wants—the one who walks
However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want
to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could
ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no
choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close
proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with
him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera....
