About this ebook

He’s a dragon-shifting prince, and she’s a human. What could possibly go wrong?

Dragon-shifter Prince Finn will do whatever it takes to save his people from extinction, even if that means sneaking through a portal to Earth to find a bride. With dragon men disappearing and threats to cut off their supply to eligible women, he knows the portal is their only hope of survival. And it might be his only chance to find love.

First meets are easy. Staying is hard.

Food blogger, Sadie Harcourt isn’t one for commitment. Her job offers the perfect excuse to keep moving. Never did she expect that her love of adventure would accidentally catapult her from Faulkner Alley in Oxford, Mississippi onto a planet of Alpha shifters looking to marry.

When the elders discover that Finn accessed the portal, all hell breaks loose. Factions pounce on the opportunity to overthrow the royal family. Now everything he holds dear rests in the hands of a captivating woman who arrived on his planet by mistake.

Welcome to the dangerous world of Qurilixen where dragon-shifters and cat-shifters rule as fiercely as they love.

Book Five of the Captured by a Dragon-Shifter series, a dragon shapeshifter fantasy/sci fi romance from NY Times & USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow.

About the Captured by a Dragon-Shifter Series

Welcome to the dangerous world of Qurilixen where dragon-shifters and cat-shifters rule as fiercely as they love. They might have escaped human persecution long ago to live on their own terms, but now must return to Earth to ensure their survival.  

For Qurilixen Fans

A modern day prequel series installment to those first books (Dragon Lords & Lords of the Var®), taking place long before the princes you know and love ever found their mates, long before The Dragon’s Queen, in a time when the dragon-shifters and cat-shifters actually—wait for it—liked each other and hung out as friends. They also don’t have Galaxy Brides to bring them women. What they do have is the old portal that they used to escape Earth. There’s no one left to marry on the planet and things are starting to get desperate. This series can be read as a standalone.

It took a little bit for me to get into this story (probably because I read The Reluctant Lord first and wanted more of Clara and Vlad's story and this is set in a time before the Galaxy Brides brought mates to Qurilixen). But once I got in to it, the story took off and kept me flipping pages eager to see what happened next. Sadie and Finn have a rough start thanks to Ivar (can't wait to find out what happened to him), but soon the intrigue and drama begins in ernest. With Finn's unauthorized use of the portal and a missing Var prince, the purists, extremists, and some elders see this as a time to promote their views and they don't care who they take down. I liked that Sadie knew her own mind and didn't fight against her feelings. On the other hand, Finn struggled with his feelings. Princess Eve brings a breath of fresh air and a touch of home to help Sadie adjust to her new home. I loved that both sets of royals (Draig and Var) do not jump to conclusions and use their heads as is fitting for heads of state. The Var queen is awesome and I would love to see more of her race. The conclusion was great with justice being served. The birth of a Qurilixen custom was surprising and anabsolutely perfect fit in the story. I would definitely recommend all the Qurilixen books (and if you want a super awesome series try this author's MacGregor series - it's freaking awesome)

Prince Finn, a dragon shifter, and Sadie, an Earth human, are thrust into the portal and back to his planet where there are no more females. These two are a very interesting pair that start out with a bit of rough edges, but soon start to see the passion in each other. Once the romance starts, it is very heartwarming the way they interact. The storyline packs a punch as well with plenty of action, twists and drama happening all around them. Can not wait for the next storyline. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Good plan, bad execution!! Prince Finn talks his best friend, Prince Ivar, into sneaking through the portal and grabbing two women and then sneaking back home before the portal closes. There has been talk of permanently closing the portal, the only way to find brides for their planet, Qurilixian. For some reason, there are no longer any female offspring being born and within the next couple of generations they will all die off. Finn sees this as a way to save his people, and also keep the portal open. He has a plan of his own that he doesn’t tell Ivar. He is planning on shoving Ivar through the portal at the last minute with his woman and he is going to stay on earth for the next year when the portal will open again. He thinks this will force the King and Queen into keeping the portal open for at least another year. Sophie is a food blogger that doesn’t do permanent relationships. She is constantly moving from one location to another every few months to get new material for her blog. She sees Finn and Ivar fighting and goes to break up the fight. Ivar takes advantage of Finn’s distraction and knocks him out and throws him through the portal. He then grabs Sophie, because she has seen Finn disappear, and throws her through the portal also, just before it closes. She finds herself on an alien planet with no way to get home. Not only that but Finn arranges for the “marriage” tent to be set up and they spend the night together. In the morning the Queen finds them and according to Qurilixian law they are now married. Sophie is not very happy with this arrangement! This is a great book, full of laughter and mischief. Sophie is a strong, funny character and you will love her as she struggles with her relationship with Finn and the whole royal family thing.
