Cynical yet sexy dragon shifter Sebastian Bernal rules a modern empire of riches. Cruelly betrayed once by a woman, he no longer believes in love. His only true passion is to find his ancestors' stolen treasures-golden objects filled with the essence of his own power. Without them, he will die. And time is running out.
Smart, practical Lacey Whitman is consumed by her demanding yet beloved job. She has no time for men. Except the one man whose smoky eyes and electrifying presence caress her dreams at night, tempt her senses by day. But Sebastian Bernal and his dark secrets will only cause inevitable heartbreak...or worse.
Yet as Lacey's undeniable allure melts Sebastian's defenses, everything threatens to tip out of his control. She is his mate-and she's about to disrupt not only his bitter oath to recover his family's legacies by whatever means necessary, but his shattered heart and fading soul.
