Unless you’re Magnus Ironside, a metal dragon who just awakened in the modern world and happens to be obsessed with cars and their inner workings. Add in the fact that his mate just walked in to hire him to work at her auto shop, and Magnus is one happy dragon. Now he just has to flex his pecs, show her his huge ‘axe’, and everything will work out, right? Wrong.
Lindy Dunn doesn’t have time for a relationship, not while she’s working herself to the bone trying to make ends meet. She doesn’t have time to notice the huge muscles or gorgeous, jade-green eyes of the oddly sexy handyman she just hired. No matter that he’s seriously good with cars, and fun to be around. With someone sabotaging her dad’s shop, it’s not the right time to fall into any man’s arms, even if it’s someone as capable as Magnus.
Magnus knows he can win over Lindy, as long as he doesn’t move too fast with talk of dragons and destiny. The heat between them is too blazing to deny. But though Magnus thought he’d left the past far behind him, one big storm is still approaching, bringing a dark figure that threatens to destroy everything the iron dragon holds dear.
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Iron is a fun, sexy shifter romance with a dash of danger tossed in as well. I enjoyed Magnus and Lindy’s interactions so much. Yes, he’s a huge, sexy dragon shifter from a long ago era, and she’s a modern day business owner who is a capable mechanic in her own rights… but Magnus’ sometimes bumbling, awkward phrasing, his assumption that his strength and protection is all that Lindy will ever need is somewhat endearing, even if he is wrong. Yet what made this couple so special to me were their flaws, their insecurities – and yes, even dragons have insecurities, especially when you add into the mix a good dose of unnecessary self-blame.
We’ll learn a bit more of the metal dragons’ past, how they set out on this amazing journey looking for mates – and we’ll also run into an enemy that was faced in the first story of this series.
If you love Shifter Romance with characters who show their vulnerabilities as well as their strengths, a likable couple, recurring secondary characters and a really good story then Iron or any story in this series is one you should be picking up. Lindy may be tiny, but she’s strong and stubborn. Magnus may be huge and powerful but he’s also has those moments of feeling far less than capable of protecting his mate or his friends…which makes him rather human. I enjoyed this story very much and would happily recommend it to any Shifter Romance or Paranormal Romance reader.
