Finding your fire mate is easy. Convincing your fire mate she is fated to be yours...not so much! Soar with the dragons of Australia in Sera's Dragon from awarding winning erotic paranormal romance author Lexxie Couper. Book 1 of her Fire Mates series will keep you turning the pages of this contemporary paranormal suspense.

Life isn't easy for a modern-day dragon shifter. Unlike those wuss werewolves, dragons can't just shift and go for a run through the nearest forest. They can't go flying on a whim. Forget about scared villagers slinging arrows; these days it's Neighborhood Watch zealots with AK-47s. Then there's the whole sex issue. Try telling the little cutie at the local Starbucks that a soul-shattering orgasm might end in bed flambé. No, being a dragon shifter kinda sucks. And for Tyson, it's even worse--because he's suddenly in heat.

Bad news for the stranger he spies running along Bondi Beach.

Ty instantly recognizes Sera as his mate. Now he has to convince her, while also dodging the psychopathic dragon hunter on his tail. Scorching sexual persuasion should do the trick. Hopefully. Because if Ty doesn't join with his Fire Mate before his heat cycle finishes, bad things will happen. Lots of bad things.

Content Notes: This erotic paranormal suspense romance contains dragon shapeshifters and is intended for readers over the age of 18.

Previously Published: (2011) Ellora's Cave, Original Title: Ty the Sexy Dragon

I adore anything dragon, so when I found our Lexxie Couper had a dragon book, I was all over it.

Mmmm ... dragon shifters.

This is a short, sexy story of a dragon in heat. I loves stories about dragon's in mating heat. :-) Ty is the dragon in question, who lives in Sydney and is swept away when his fated mate jogs past him on Bondi Beach and changes his life. In a frenzy to find her and claim her, while dodging a dragon hunter out to claim his heart as a prize, he's got his work cut out for him. Lucky for him, Sera, his chosen lady is also being swept up by the mating frenzy and eager to get into some hanky panky with him.

There's not much to expect out of this story other than a frenzied ride through the streets of Bondi while Ty and Sera get into some sexy shenanigans without getting caught or seen. There are lots and lots of sexy shenanigans and fortunately, I was in the mood for it.

This was a most satisfying read for me. Right book, right time. I'm looking forward to reading book 2. I'm all about the dragon shifters.

ps. In my original review, I quibbled about Americanisms in the book. These have all been fixed. :-)

About the author

Lexxie CouperLexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.

When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.

Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.

  1. Ooo dragons. I'm always up for dragons and some sexy times. Ergs on the new cover though. I would have totally skipped over that so good to see your review :)

    1. Hah, you should have seen the first cover!! :-p

  2. ::snort:: I kinda liked the EC one more. For me cover is SO important. I can't seem but help be a coverwhore. *hangs head*

    1. No need to hang head. I'm a huge sucker for a good cover too. I don't dislike the cover for this new version of the book though. I've seen worse. A lot of sci-fi romance covers ... they look like cartoons and purple aliens. Purple aliens that look like humans with purple skin do not look good on the cover. I see that on the cover and I think, I don't want to read that because I don't think I'd fall for a purple alien hero. :-D
