One look at Hope and I knew my life would never be the same. The more I learn about her, the more I crave her The more she turns me away, the more I must have her I will not let anything happen to her Even if it means taking on the deadliest threat to our species... She is MINE.

""Why are you fighting this, fighting us?"" He'd been compelled to ask the question, but every part of him screamed he did not want to hear the answer.

Because, hell, when it came down to it, she was a woman and he was a man, and they fit in the most basic of ways.

 It was just so right. 

There was nothing more to it other than that. Nothing else mattered. Except it did. To her.


""Hope."" 

As if realizing that he was at the end of his tether, she turned to him, and he swore. 
Those green eyes had turned dragon. The pupils showed verticals slit with gold specks swirling in the irises. It was the beast warring to take over. 

Her dragon was fighting it every step of the way, tearing her from the inside out. 


""You are in your own personal hell, aren't you, baby?"" Reaching up with his free hand, he pushed aside a curl of hair which had fallen over her cheek.
Her eyelids swept down, hiding the sight of those green-gold eyes for a second. She flinched. 


""You aren't going to give in to your dragon, are you?"" He gripped her wrist. 
Just for a few more seconds he could feel her skin on his, couldn't he?


Leaning toward her, he bent until he was eye level with her. His breath whistled out over her cheek. He held that emerald-green gaze. 

The golden flecks in those gorgeous eyes twisted in tune to an inner turbulence he couldn't see. Waves of tension radiated from her. 


He sucked in a breath. The blood thudded at his temples. ""What are you going to do, you stubborn woman?""

""I am sorry, Aaron.""

“I am not going to submit to you.”

His entire body went still.

There was so much prickly hate in her tone, and yet under him he was aware of her curves. Her scent, musky, sugary, and one hundred percent lush female, reached out to him. 

His gaze dropped to her lips. He hardened even more against her belly. She must have felt it, too. “What do you want?” Her chin trembled. 

He wanted to tell her he was there to get her out of there, he was there to help her, he was going to take her to safety and protect her and watch over her, and he opened his mouth to tell her, but of course, no words came out. 

Nothing except a hoarse sound. 

His features tightened. He’d never felt more helpless in his life. He needed to reassure her, but how?

Her gaze darted to his mouth then slid to his throat.


She swallowed. He knew she had spotted the scars of the collar that had dug into his skin. It marked him out as being a victim. Just like her.


Some of the tension seemed to leave her body.

Still her big amber eyes blinked at him warily. “Maybe you are not one of them; you are certainly not dressed like the Fae soldiers.” Her gaze flicked to his vest, then back to his face. 

“But I don’t know who you are and why you are holding me down.” She gnawed on her lower lip.

He wanted to reach down and brush his thumb over that glistening flesh. How would her mouth taste?


As if aware of the direction his thoughts had taken, she bared her teeth and hissed. Feral creature. And she’d called him a beast?


He felt her pull her leg back, as if she intended to kick him, or worse, knee him again. 

He gripped his arms around her body, making sure to keep her arms captive, then angled his much heavier weight just so, to hold her legs down. 

Her eyes widened, the amber growing darker until her entire irises burned a curious shade of gold.

He felt the tension gather inside her as she opened her mouth to scream again. And no way could he stand hearing that cry of fear again. He needed to reassure her.
Going with instinct, he opened his mouth to tell her she could trust him, but all that emerged was a low purr—a deep, harmonious sound that seemed to be wrenched out of his very heart.


He froze. 

The woman under him froze, too, then she blinked.

Kicking off his flip-flops, he jumped from the porch to the grass and hit the ground running.
Three strides in, the magic took over. It shimmered down his back, tracing his spine, almost sexual as it tickled his skin. His face elongated, forming a snout covered with silver scales, while his eyes widened and narrowed, the irises turning into little more than silver slits. Horns sprouted from his head, curling toward his back, which was bubbling and twisting as his body grew, getting larger, longer, more serpentine. Wings emerged from his shoulder blades, growing and stretching until they were ten feet wide, fully extended.
He was still running as his wings flapped, lifting him from the ground, propelling him into the sky before he was even fully formed. He let out a breath, shooting fire at nothing at all, and headed for the clouds, bursting through them at top speed, water droplets clinging to his leathery skin until he soared higher and the wind whisked it all away. 
This was his freedom. Up here, high above the clouds, doing nothing but flying in circles and arcs, he could leave his worries behind, if only for brief moments in time. Up here, he could dream uninterrupted. Imagine his life if things were…different. If his mother and father hadn’t abandoned him. If he’d grown up like a normal dragon, in a household with an actual parent—or even two. Where sitting down to dinner together was routine. A household where he could look at the patriarch and think, This is what I want to be when I grow up. 
Those were all pipe dreams, of course. He was an adult now, so no one was going to summon him to dinner and there wasn’t anyone to emulate.
What the hell had the Elders been thinking, to choose him as reeve? Five years in and he still wasn’t confident in his ability to run a dragon colony. If not for Talia, he’d have crashed and burned a long time ago. Quite possibly literally, given his propensity to attempt to win some sort of trophy for hard partying. 
He insisted that lifestyle was satisfying, even though he knew damn well getting wasted and sleeping with endless, nameless women and shirking his duties as reeve was not really who he wanted to be.
But he’d been that person for so long, he didn’t know how to change.
He burst through the clouds again, emerging beneath them in time to see the shimmer of magic swell around her as Talia shifted for Ruby’s enjoyment. He flew in lazy circles, watching as she turned into a dragon as well, smaller than his own form but no less impressive.
Ruby, small as a doll from this height, clapped her hands and bounced on her feet, calling out encouragement as Talia did first a front and then a backward flip before soaring down to the ground and turning back to the sky at the last moment. 
Gabe held his breath. Something poured through his system, a magic he had never experienced before. It urged him to fly lower, which was weird. He flew alone, always had.
What the fuck was going on in his head?
Talia remained in flight for a few more minutes and then landed next to Ruby, who ran up to her, not afraid in the least, and gave her dragon form a hug. He was nose-diving before he realized what was happening, his dragon insisting, for some damn reason, on joining them.
When he landed next to her, Talia arched one scaly eyebrow while Ruby rushed over and patted his chest. “I love dragons,” she declared, and he snorted, fire bursting from his nostrils and hitting the ground a foot from the little girl. 
Talia roared and bumped him with her head, a stern look on her dragon face. 
It was an accident, he thought. 
You almost fried your own daughter.
Gabe whipped around to stare at Talia, who had an equally shocked look on her own snout. He shook his head, motioning—shift back!—and then he did just that, quickly magicking his clothing back on before Ruby got an eyeful of the type of body parts she’d better not see until she was at least thirty. If then.
Talia followed his lead and he deliberately stared at her, just to catch a glimpse of her naked body in that brief few seconds before she, too, magicked her clothes on. His dragon, now contained inside his human form, roared with approval even though the moment was so quick he didn’t really even see anything.
What the hell?
“You heard me,” he blurted as soon as they were both in human form. 
“You heard me,” she responded, pointing at him.
“That doesn’t happen. Dragons can’t speak to each other. It’s impossible.”
“It’s not,” she qualified. “It’s just really rare.” She looked down at the little girl, who was watching them as if they were an animated TV show.
“And why am I suddenly attracted to you?”
“Wait—what?” She jumped, backing up a few steps, like he was about to grab her and toss her over his shoulder and carry her up to his bedroom so he could ravish her until they were both exhausted.
His dragon liked that idea.
“What? No,” he said, talking to the creature, which, of course, Talia didn’t realize.
“No what?”
“This,” Gabe said, stabbing his finger at her and then waving it between the two of them. “This is not happening. No. It’s—fuck.” Shaking his head, he stormed toward the house and headed straight for the liquor cabinet. Foregoing a glass, he grabbed the whiskey bottle and took it with him as he headed upstairs.
But the top of the stairs, he charged back down to the foyer. He punched his code into the security panel, leaned forward for the retinal scan, and finally jerked open the door leading to the basement and headed there instead.
There was no bed in the basement, and he didn’t need that particular piece of furniture to give him any ideas. Ideas that involved Talia. 
And mating.

Gently, I nudged her with my paw and then my nose, but she didn’t move. Instinctively, I inhaled deeply to investigate her scent just as I would with anyone I’d met for the first time. 
F*ck. 
The tantalizing combination of vanilla and cinnamon raced up my nostrils and shot straight to my bulging erection, making it jerk. 
My bear growled his arousal, wanting to investigate her mouthwatering scent further. 
Damn. She’s trouble. 
I started to back up to beat a hasty retreat, and then I stopped dead in my tracks, rooted to the spot. She was going to freeze to death if I left her in the mud. With one last glance around to ensure I was alone, I shifted back into a man and scooped the woman up into my arms. 
The second I glanced down at her face, my heart skipped a beat. Not only was I drawn to her exotic beauty, but I was also strangely driven to protect her.
Absolutely beautiful. 
Mine, my bear growled. 
F*ck no, I hissed back.
The long, dark curls that escaped her bun compelled me to run my fingers through them. Her skin was the color of hot chocolate. Her pouty lips begged to be repeatedly plundered. Her perfect hourglass figure made my loins swell. 
Damn, she’s the full package.
Snowflakes fell onto her cheeks and long black eyelashes but didn’t wake her. I could stare at her all night, and I probably would have if I hadn’t remembered where we were. Just holding her in my arms sent my gut twisting and heart pounding. My beast growled in satisfaction, but I growled back with irritation. There was no time for a battle of wills. 
I knew of a nearby small cave where she would at least be out of the elements and away from Price and his men until she awoke. I’d get her there and then be on my way. That was all I would do for her. 
Despite what my beast thought, she was not my mate to protect. 
But minutes later, as I was about to leave her in the small cave, I felt the strong primal urge to stay and keep her warm, and then she groaned and rolled over. 
No. I have to go. 
Quickly, I left the cave and shifted back into my bear.

Gavin prowled through the club in Inverness, fired up for the show to start. Not only was he anticipating the usual rush of performing on stage but, also, the question that had haunted him for six weeks would be answered tonight.
Would she come?


He glanced around the venue. It was like many others they’d played in—a stocked bar, small tables, and a stage. The overhead lights bore down with a garish glow. The club lacked the magic of dimmed lights, the spotlights that shined on stage, and the crowd clamoring to get close. The biggest difference about this club was that it was imprinted with memories of Fiona, the bonnie lass with hair the colors of the setting sun.


Since he’d returned to the Isle of Stone six weeks ago, he couldn’t scrub her from his mind. As he rested and watched the sun descend, he thought of her hair. When he soared over the ocean, the swirl of blues and green reminded him of her eyes.


He inhaled, a futile attempt to discern if her feminine scent still lingered. Instead, he was hit with the rancid aroma of alcohol, which seemed ingrained in the wood panels. He climbed onto the stage where his brothers prepared for tonight’s set and grabbed his guitar to tune it.


“Hey, Gavin,” his brother Calum said, as he twirled the mic stand. “You’re acting all mopey again. Not like yourself. We’re all wondering what’s going on? Did you pick up Mad Cow disease or something like that?”


Gavin pulled his brows together as he eyed his youngest brother, who pulled his signature long blond hair into a ponytail.


“Why do you say that?” Gavin asked. As a gargoyle shifter, they couldn’t contract human illnesses.


“Because it’s not like you to let your shaft get cold for long,” Calum teased. 
His brothers laughed with agreements like, “True,” and “Must be a record.”


Gavin grumbled. The truth to those words rankled him. He wasn’t acting like himself at all. He shouldn’t let one lass get under his skin—especially a human—but somehow this vivacious woman had gotten to him. 


Fiona. He often repeated her name in his head like some lovesick puppy. Ridiculous. He should have known better than to set up expectations six weeks ago by suggesting they meet up the next time he was in town. No, he did know better. He’d broken his own rule by opening his big, fat gob and saying he wanted to see her. They’d already spent three nights together.


Was he off his head? Aye, that sounded about right.


He wasn’t soft like his brothers, besotted by one woman. They’d abandoned their drive to explore the world and discover all its wonders. But, not him. He yearned to experience it all.


What could he do to rid himself of the compulsion to be near her?


Sleep with her again. That was the answer—the only way to get her out of his system.


“You haven’t run off with a lass since the last time we were in Inverness,” his eldest brother, Lachlan, pointed out as he tuned his bass guitar. “So, you can’t fault us for wondering.”


Lachlan was the alpha of their new, small clan. When the other gargoyle shifters had returned to the Scottish Highlands, Gavin and his brothers had chosen to remain on the Isle of Stone, north of Thurso, which they shared with tree witches and wolf shifters. The brothers had caused a rift when they’d created their band, the Knights of Stone, and performed for humans—an act the elder gargoyles had considered intolerable.
Gavin avoided Lachlan’s gaze, knowing he was right.

 When they’d played at clubs in Spain and Portugal, Gavin had searched the crowd for Fiona, although it was mad to even think she’d be there. He hadn’t pursued any of the lasses. They weren’t what he craved—Fiona’s touch, her taste, her scent. 


“I don’t have a human disease or anything else.” Gavin forced a nonchalant tone, so his brothers wouldn’t pick up on the real reason for his monkish ways. “Sometimes, you need a break to recharge before firing up for a night of soaring—or shagging,” he added with a playful smirk that was more him than his recent sulking.


“You sure it isn’t a lass?” Calum asked.


Was he that transparent? Time to shift the conversation. 

“Just because you’ve all settled down with mates, doesn’t mean I want that lifestyle. Time to get serious for tonight’s set."
