FROM GOODREADS: The love between a human and a Morgon, the dragon-hybrid race, tempts fate once more...
All her life, Ella Barrow has allowed others to make her decisions. Forced to stifle her artistic talents and stay in a loveless relationship with Clayton Kerrington, the man her mother believes to be her perfect match, Ella's life may be safe - but it's not her own. Paxon Nightwing, on the other hand, is anything but the safe choice.
A charming and alluring Morgon, Paxon sees Ella for the woman she truly is. His bold confidence and protective nature ignites a passion she's never felt before. But a dark family tragedy forces their secrecy - until Clayton makes it impossible to hide their clandestine affair. Will Ella be strong enough to fight for herself at last? Or will she succumb once more and risk losing the only man she's ever loved?
MY TAKE: This was my first visit to the author's fantastic world of Morgons. It was way too short of a visit! I can't wait to get the other books so I can extend my stay.
While this is the third book in the series, it is still very much a stand alone read. I liked Ella right away, lusted after Paxon and couldn't stand Clayton. Juliette Cross populates her world with fantastic characters. She makes you feel for them and care about them and what happens to them - except Clayton. I wanted bad - worse things to happen to him.
Ms. Cross is a master at creating mental pictures. The images she portrays with her words make me feel like I could reach out and touch Paxon and his beautiful wings.
I believe (adult) readers who enjoy fantasy, paranormal and romance should dive into this lovely world. You won't be disappointed, you'll be hooked.
