In order to stay alive, a dragon shifter and a human must join forces. If it weren't for bad luck, safety expert, Nessa Caspian, wouldn't have any luck at all. Just when she thinks things can't get worse, an explosion traps her in the mine. Really? If she hadn't been a dragon shifter, capable of clawing her way out, she'd be dead! When she learns the mining inspector, Kyle Harper, has to shut down her family's legacy because of all the safety issues, she's livid-that is until she realizes the super-hot man is her future mate. Well crap. Now what is she supposed to do? Bite him? Kyle hates dragon shifters. After all, one nearly killed his sister. When he meets the highly tantalizing and intelligent Nessa though, all his preconceived notions fly out the window. Part of him wants to keep her at arm's length and the rest of him wants to ravish her . . . Contains mature themes.
