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?

The Review: I adore this series! It’s as simple as that and unfortunately this is the last one.

Paxon has met Ella before -considering she is close friends with his cousins’ mates- but for some reason never really noticed her until he enters the NightWing office she is working in where she is currently on her hands and knees looking for something; needless to say – he’s intrigued. It’s not until she attends the Vaengar games that he sees her again but unfortunately she is in the company of her boyfriend Clayton. When Clayton wagers one of her kisses to the victor of a fight, Paxon is more than happy to step in… only not for the reason you would think. Ella is enchanted by Paxon, she has never felt this way about anyone but she also belongs to a family that are prejudice against the Morgon race and she knows that they would never accept him. Should she live her life by society’s expectations or should she follow her heart and grab the only man to make her feel alive?

We have previously met Paxon & Ella in the two earlier books and both made an impression; Paxon always had an air of confidence about him that gave of a playboy vibe, Ella however, gave the impression of innocence and the only way she got any excitement was through her two best friends….but that is about to change because Ella is about to have an awakening herself. Now, I’m not one for love triangles but this was an exception to my rule because her boyfriend was the ultimate douche & so not worthy of her time so I was all about a change in that relationship status. I loved Ella and Paxon together, they smouldered, they had chemistry & Paxon was everything you could wish for in a paranormal love interest, he opens up Ella like a beautiful flower bud, making her blossom through his want, desire and love.

The storyline was great, I liked how the boyfriend featured heavily in the story because he was one of those people you can’t help but hate and we all know how despicable thwarted lovers can be. With books like this, you expect the Morgons to be the instigators of any fights/unrest but we are shown time and time again that humans are the real animals. The romance is a major part of the plot which is always fab, but then we also have Ella’s family and their prejudices, we are also  shown how society deals with those too…. Their relationship will be challenged but it’s others who must change their views. The story has a couple of twists to keep us on our toes, especially when blackmail is involved – so prepare yourself for some slimey characters that will need to be put in their place.
I’m quite sad that this will be the final book in this novella series because it was fabulous, I have greatly enjoyed them and not one book has disappointed – don’t believe me? Try them for yourselves! 

Thank you to Lyrical Press for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
