About this ebook

 STONEFIRE DRAGONS BOOK 9

Teagan O’Shea is a rare female dragon-shifter leader. While her Irish clan has a tradition of female leaders, they have had to hide behind a public male face for centuries to keep the other clans from viewing them as weaker and attacking. When the truth leaks, Teagan is faced with a choice—hand over the leadership to a male or invite the challengers to a leadership trial and earn her place. Out to prove having a penis isn’t required to be a leader, she picks the latter.


Aaron Caruso is sent to Ireland under the guise of repairing relations between two clans on the isle of Ireland. However, upon arrival he learns the truth. Determined to secure Teagan’s place so he can escape her alluring eyes and addicting personality, he busies himself with helping her any way he can. A female used him once and he’s not about to go through that again, no matter how much the Irish female tempts him.



As the pair work together on preparations for the leadership trial, both Aaron and Teagan start to see each other in a new light. Both have their own self-imposed loneliness and yearn for something they can’t have. Can Aaron and Teagan not only change tradition but also open their hearts? Or will they each be doomed to live alone to fight their inner battles?

Aiden wasn't excited at being sent to The Irish Clan. He'd met the female leader and while he told himself it had nothing to do with her leadership. Her gender was another thing. He didn't have a good opinion about any female dragon shifter except his mother. He has a history to warrant the feelings. Teagan didn't appreciate his attitude. Her clan was alone in having a female leader. Even so, the rest of the clans believed her brother led. He was just another cocky male who didn't think she was strong enough to lead. She knew she worked harder, took on more, and made a personal effort to deal with her clan than any other leader. Just once, she wished a likely male would see it. Their dragons knew it wasn't gender discrimination. It had a lot to do with gender and hormones and the steam created when they were together. I really enjoyed the first challenge. The payback was an interesting beginning to their growing relationship. The author has given us a dragon's eye view of a current day and reality in this enticing story. The characters are strong yet each has a soft center damaged by past relationships and fear of new ones. I loved their hedge to give into their attraction. The heat interspersed with teasing, threats, and one-up-manship. Watching them come to terms while dealing with danger, life threats, family issues, as well as the threat of leadership loss. Both characters are strong and fun and I loved them. I was delighted to know that there will be more coming up with the relationship evolving from this story in at least one future story. This is another gold medal winner from Jessie Donovan. This is my honest review of this advance reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

***I received a free copy of this book for a voluntary and honest review*** Okay so I absolutely love this book! I have been reading stories series for almost two years. Every book is better than the last, Teagan and Aaron's story was no different. From the moment I began reading the book until I finished it, it had me excited and on the edge of my seat. I went through an emotional roller coaster with this book too. (Usually happens with these books) I especially loved the battle in the book, the action was intense and I had held my breath the whole time. But truth I am overtly excited for Killian and Brenna's story. This book had enough action on its own, more than the others. Definitely worth the read and recommend. Love this series

Challenging traditions Teagan O’Shea is Glenlough’s clan Leader. But being female and a Clan leader has been kept secret for centuries. Word has leaked out and other clans and their male testosterone believe this make the clan weak. So a challenge for leadership of the clan needs to happen or attacks could come. Aaron Caruso has been sent by Stonefire Clan to assist Teagan in any way they can. It’s also to help with Clan alliances. Only problem is Aaron is attracted to the clan leader and wants it’s to be over with so he can avoid the attraction and possibility of another female hurting him. With lots of action and adventure throughout the book, it will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next. This may be part of a series yet it’s a self-contained story that very well written and extremely entertaining to read.
