Dragon shifter and team lead for DSD—Dark Scales Division—Owen Ashton has never lost a case. 

When his sister’s murderer turns serial killer, he is determined to take the rogue dragon down, for good. His team tracks the murderer to a small town in Minnesota and Owen goes undercover to finally end Huff’s reign of terror. The last thing Owen expected was to discover his mate vacationing in the lake house next to his.

Nadia Hasting, along with her sister Sage, take the first vacation in years since their parents’ deaths. Visiting the lake house their family rented every year when they were children is exactly what they need for downtime before Sage heads to college. The hot neighbor is a bonus, but Nadia isn’t sure she’s ready to date. But the pull toward the sexy stranger proves too strong to ignore. 

When Sage goes missing, Nadia turns to Owen to rescue her sister from a mad man. 

But will Owen’s dragon scare her away from the one man that can save them all?

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – in other words, there’s going to be sex involved in this story – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

My Rating:  4.5 stars

To be completely straightforward, Shifter Romance is my number one, most enjoyed genre of all – and when I find them in Netgalley it’s one special treat.  Especially when Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne are writing it.  So, yes, I settled down to enjoy Dragon Undercover, the first in the Dark Scales Division series and I absolutely loved falling into this world — and if you love Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance as well then you need to be reading this new series.

Owen and his team hunt down the worst of their species, the dragons who have gone rogue and proven just how bad an out of control, bat crap crazy dragon can be.  He has personal experience of this particular bad guy, Liam Huff, since he is responsible for Owen’s sister dying a horrible death.  He’s on the trail of a serial killer when the last person he ever expected to find moved in to the cabin next door.  His fated mate.  While finding your mate is always a  dream come true, the fate’s timing on this one is really not so great.  Owen has to convince Nadia that he’s the man for her while keeping track of a killer, and figuring out how to explain his dragon.  Everything goes south when Nadia’s sister, Sage, is taken.  Now Nadia has no choice but to trust the man who she’s drawn to, and accept him just as he is.

Dragon Undercover isn’t a long story, but it is a powerful introduction to the series.  Fast paced, steamy moments, secrets, and a love worth risking everything for.  Nadia is a strong woman, and even if she doesn’t realize it yet she’s a perfect dragon mate.  I easily got caught up in their story and it certainly was a roller coaster ride.  I’m definitely looking forward to the next book, Snowed Undercover.  If you love Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance then you need to check out Owen and Nadia’s story, I’m thinking you’ll be captured as well.
