From the bestselling author of the BLOOD CURSE SERIES and DRAGONS REALM comes a gripping, sensuous saga, full of danger, vampiric-dragons, and mystic fire: PANTHEON OF DRAGONS by Tessa Dawn.
Zanaikeyros Saphyrius, better known as Zane, is an original dragyri, a badass male, and a Genesis Son—one of the original embryos made by the dragon lords. Like all the Dragyr he has ten days from the time he meets his fated—a human female—to take her to the Temple of Seven and present her to the ancient dragon lords to be consecrated…remade…and reborn.
Jordan Anderson is as talented as she is independent. Despite losing her parents when she was only seven years old, she has managed to create a successful career, establish a comfortable life, and lay the groundwork for a safe, predictable future. The last thing she wants — or needs — is to enter a savage world teeming with demons, shadow-walkers, and fearsome dragon lords.
When Zane and Jordan’s lives cross paths in a dimly lit parking garage, an immortal flame is ignited…and the ten-day clock starts running.
Zane sees all the signs.
Jordan sees only a predator.
And a dark, perilous journey begins…ZANAIKEYROS ~ SON OF DRAGONS: a fiery fusion of Dark Fantasy and Gothic Romance.
