To survive, she’ll have to surrender her heart…

Determined to escape the armed men who took her captive, Ellyn turns to the one man she shouldn’t trust. Vlad is big enough to take on an army but gentle enough to make her body sing with pleasure. She could get lost in his tantalizing gaze, but now is not the time to fall in love.

Vlad can’t reveal his true nature to a human, even if she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. As a dragon shifter, he’s been sworn to secrecy. His clan has been hiding in plain sight among the humans of Five Peaks for almost a century. To rescue the woman who has claimed his heart, he’ll have to sacrifice everything.

Together, they must find a way to escape their mutual enemies before they end up dead. That could prove easier said than done, however, thanks to an unexpected enemy. Vlad’s best friend isn’t ready to leave their new home. He’ll stop at nothing to make sure they don’t leave either, even if it means betraying Vlad and Ellyn.

Title:  In A Dragon’s Mind
Series:  Dragons of Mount Teres
Author:  Riley Storm
Published:  June 2, 2020
My Rating:  4.5 stars

In A Dragon’s Mind‘ begins the ‘Dragons of Mount Teres‘ series (which is connected – as the middle series – with ‘Dragons of Mount Aterna‘ and ‘Dragons of Mount Valen‘) with a truly intriguing romance, or perhaps even a romantic suspense story between a human woman who is quite skilled as a thief and one dragon shifter who has left his home and settled for far less than he deserves with another dragon clan.

Vlad and Ellyn drew me into their world and held me captive there (and to their story) from beginning to end with ease.  I liked them both, for different reasons but together they shine.  But before that happily ever after can be realized they’ll have to escape from one powerful, dangerous dragon clan and make their way to a safe haven, at least for Ellyn (Vlad won’t feel worthy of being there, at all).  Betrayal will come from a very personal and close source for Vlad – and while he might barely understand it, the turning of his once best friend will hurt down to the heart.

If you need your Shifter romances to be filled with intrigue, betrayals, danger, sizzling sexy times, good friends, and unseen enemies then ‘In A Dragon’s Mind‘ would be perfect for you.  For me, well, I seem to have started this world in the middle and now have to decide if I’m continuing in this series right now or going back to the first series in this world next… I know what I’ll probably do, I always seem to need to start from the beginning.  *shrugs with a smile*  I had a blast and if you love a sexy dragon and his sarcastic loving mate then I’m betting you’d love this story as well.
