Never burn a dragon
Tonight should be like any other night on the job for matchmaking apprentice Jade Tan. Except, the woman who's supposed to meet her mate stands him up instead, and the gorgeously furious dragon Liem Long demands Jade take her place. But what begins as a harmless fill-in date soon erupts into a devastating--and disastrous--passion.
Never let him seduce you, either
Liem Long has crawled out from the underbelly of the world for just one thing: his mate. Unfortunately, she appears to have other plans and jilts him. Furious with the Matchmaker, Liem offers her intern Jade a second chance--find his mate and he won't tell on her. Yet as it turns out, he's not the only one searching for his mate--his rival is, too. Forced into an impossible choice, Liem will have to wage war against his very nature and overcome his darkest demons--especially the really sparkly ones.
And never, ever, try to match one
Falling for a dragon who already has a soul mate is bad. Becoming the object of his fiery, hoarding nature is way worse. Forget her job and her heart, it's her life on the line. If Jade can't convince Liem she's more than his most prized possession, they'll both become lost to each other...forever.
Steamy fantasy romance author Rachael Slate offers up more dragon love with her latest novella, Never Match a Dragon, book 7 in her Chinese Zodiac Romance series. Unlike previous books in the series, though, we see very little talk of the worldwide epidemic that plagues the world or the war for the future of humanity. In contrast, this book is almost a rom-com that just happens to be set in the same world as the other novels and novellas. But you still get glimpses of the mythology and you get Slate’s signature steamy scenes, so it’s plain to see that while fans of the series may feel as if they’ve shifted gears for this novella, they’re definitely still in the same car.
