Publisher's Summary

Isaac Morningstar III, or Zach to the few who know him, has hit rock bottom. Once an immortal, nearly-invincible dragon, he's been awakened only to have his powers and his treasure locked away until he can prove himself to be a trustworthy protector of humans. Since Zach has never liked humans, he's pretty sure he's going to end up back on ice. That is, until he meets sweet, curvy Erin, a human hairdresser who might just turn his world upside down.
Erin has a pretty routine life, but that ends when a tall, gorgeous man appears out of nowhere, claiming to be an ancient dragon with immeasurable power who wants her as his mate. She doesn't know whether to laugh or run for the hills. But when the mysterious stranger saves her life and needs her help she can't just turn away. Still, the closer she gets to Zach, the more she realizes there may just be something truly magical about him.
But as the forces around them close in, Zach is quickly realizing that the darkness lurking inside him may be greater than he anticipated. And the beast within may not be the only thing they have need to fear.
Warning: contains ferocious dragons, fearsome fights, fiery love scenes and a fiercely cute three-legged kitten that will steal your heart. The first in a brand new series with dragons unlike anything Terry has written!

Pretty good story and start to the series :D

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked Erin and Zach and enjoyed their story very much. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'll probably be trying more of her work in the future.

Erin is a hairstylist and the manager of a salon. She lives in a rather bad area of town and the salon gets robbed occasionally but Erin doesn't want to move because she has friends in the area. Erin is a kind-hearted person and goes out of her way to help others.

Zach is an ancient dragon born from an Onyx egg. The older dragons had more power than the newer version of dragons (see the author's "Dragons of New York" series) but they went to sleep centuries ago and then were put into a cryo sleep (all of which isn't completely explained but we get the general idea). Zach is waken from his sleep by an Oracle that has the power to control dragons. She worried that he wasn't friendly enough to humans so she collared him (preventing him from using his dragon powers) until he can prove that he'll be good to humans.

Once Zach is collared, he's sent to New York with no money and only the cloths on his back. He walks all day and ends up outside a hair salon. He sees a woman inside doing stuff to a man's hair and is curious. He walks in and sits in the waiting area so he can observe the humans but he's rather bedraggled from being out in the rain so the people in the salon think he's a homeless person. The woman he observed, Erin, came over to see if he needed help but Zach is a dragon and (not realizing he seemed like someone that needed to be pitied) takes a bit of offense at the idea that he'd need help. He does find himself drawn to Erin though and seeks a reason to be close to her.

Erin thinks that Zach is rather strange, seeming to be a cross between massively arrogant and crazy. She's not sure how to handle him but when trouble comes into the salon and Zach comes to her rescue, she knows she has to help him. There is a major attraction between Zach and Erin but with the way they're thrown together leaves both of them with reservations. Also, there's a lot about humans and this new world that Zach doesn't know about or doesn't understand completely so even when he starts feeling like Erin is his mate, he's unsure about how to handle things and if he can be good for her once his dragon is released. There's a bit of angst as things are worked out but the story does end with Zach and Erin happy together and heading towards a HEA.

This was an enjoyable story. Erin was a very good heroine and I Liked her a lot. Zach was annoyingly arrogant in the beginning but that soon faded and then it was much easier to like him. Also, he fell for a 3-legged kitten! Who could not like a hero with a soft spot for a 3-legged kitten?!?! The story was short but not in a bad way...while I wouldn't have minded it being longer, it didn't feel like anything was missing at the end. The story was very good and I liked the characters so I'd recommend this story. :)
