Stuff like this never happens to people like me.
One day I’m studying for my Ph.D., the next I’m running from a stalker.
But not just any stalker. Oh, no. It’s my English professor. And he’s a bear shifter.
Just my luck.
When my best friend Jasmine tries to help me, she introduces me to her boss. To him.
Owner of the Paradigm, a nightclub almost exclusively for shifters.
Guardian of the Arch, the secret doorway between our world and theirs.
And a dragon.
I wanted him from the first moment I met him.
There was something about him that I trusted. Something that made me feel safe.
When he transports me to his shifter world for safety, I realize that want has turned into love.
It’s a wonderful escape for a while…
But when my stalker threatens the lives of everyone I love, I know I have to make a choice.
My life…or theirs.
The last thing I needed was some helpless female to babysit.
For the last few years, I’ve been alone and I liked it that way.
No one to worry about. No one to lose.
But then Casey slams into my life like a whirlwind and I’m shaken to the core.
She’s beautiful. Brave. A smart-ass.
I want to help her despite myself.
When the only way to protect her is to take her to my world, she’s not afraid to trust me.
I can’t help but want her. All of her. Body and soul.
I know that we are fated to be together. I’ve found my true mate.
But happily ever after might not be in the future for us, not as long as her stalker’s alive.
And when I learn that Casey is going to be the mother of my child, I know that I’ll do anything it takes to keep them safe.
Can the fury of a dragon be enough to save the life of the woman he loves?

Title: Into the Dragon’s World
Series: Paranormal Night Club #1
Author: Brittany White
Published: December 13, 2020
My Rating: 4.5 stars
One of the many reasons that I love (and read) Shifter Romance so much is the diversity in not only characters but in the worlds that the authors create. Much of the lore remains the same but with little additions, small tweaks that make each author’s worlds unique and enjoyable. This is extremely true with the world that the Paranormal Night Club series takes place in. While Shifters live among the humans they rarely (and usually for good reason) shift here. They aren’t hidden for many humans know of their existence yet they don’t advertise it either. Which makes for intriguing stories full of interesting situations for our heroes and heroines to find themselves in.
Into the Dragon’s World introduces Brady, a dragon shifter prince who has made the choice to live his life on the human side of the portal… with good reason. For underneath the building he owns and where he runs the nightclub, Paradigm, lies one portal to the Shifter realm. Brady is the guardian of that portal and he is content to protect it. He has no interest in taking over for his father, the king of their realm but hopes to convince his father that his sister, Alix, would be perfect for that role… the jury is still out on whether that will ever happen. Brady is hot, handsome, aloof, and self-contained. He holds guilt close to his heart, an event that prevents him (in his mind) from fulfilling his mother’s greatest wish, that Brady would find his mate. He’s done with messy human emotions… or so he thought until Casey tumbled into his life.
All Casey wanted was to complete her studies and get the education that will take her into the career she wants. The last thing she ever expected was to find herself with a stalker, not an ordinary stalker but her professor who also happens to be a bear shifter. He is one nasty piece of work and his actions are accelerating to an extremely dangerous level. Casey will turn to her friend Jasmine (a panther shifter who works for Brady) for help which puts her directly in Brady’s path… and, of course, our hero messes up immediately. (Men! Shifter or Human!)
Into the Dragon’s World is fast-paced, action-filled, and completely hooked me on the story, this world, and these characters from the beginning. I liked both Casey and Brady individually but together they shine. In many ways, their romance is a slow burn that intensifies, bursts into flame, and then is filled with an increasingly charged level of danger as Casey’s stalker turns even more violent as time moves on and Casey eludes him. Sizzlingly sexy chemistry? Oh, yes. Yet there is also an underlying romance of two people, at times tiptoeing around their emotions each afraid that only they feel this way. Which leads to some interesting conversations.
I loved stepping through the portal into Brady’s world. Such a contrast and it worked so well with this story… overly protective baby sister and all.
I had such a good time with the opening story of the Paranormal Night Club series. Interesting characters, sexy, sensuous moments, real danger, a vile, loathsome villain and secondary characters that I’m hoping will get their own stories soon. I can’t ask for anything more than that. If you love an action-filled romance with danger, sexy times, and a couple to cheer on to their happy ever after moment… then start this series, right now.
