Dragons, duty, destined mates, and a deadly rival...
Silas Llewellyn, the last of a once-mighty dragon clan, doesn’t have time for anything but work and duty. He certainly doesn’t have time for love - not with a ruthless enemy plotting to destroy everything he holds dear. When a priceless diamond - one of the legendary Spirit Stones - surfaces in New York, Silas knows the jewel is nothing but trouble... just like the alluring woman who refuses to relinquish the gem.
Bartender Cassandra Nichols never asked to inherit a mysterious diamond, and she really never intended to come between two warring dragons. But with one near-miss escape after another, she has no choice but to choose sides. Before she knows it, she’s whisked by private jet to an oceanfront estate in Hawaii for her own “protection”. Is the enigmatic Mr. Llewellyn just another billionaire dragon who thinks he can claim anything he wants? Or is there more to the soulful stranger than meets the eye?

I love this series. The characters are sexy and strong. It moves at a great pace. And it's exciting enough to keep you listening to the entire book in one sitting. It's stories like this that really make me wish shifters were real. LOL
Ms. Osborne does a great job with bringing life to the characters.

I am still loving this series about a group of shifters living on Maui. This book is about the leader of the group, Silas, and a human woman, Cassandra. The story begins in New York with an auction of a diamond which may be one of the Spirit Stones. Of course, Drax is there to bid along with Moira, Silas' ex-girlfriend. There is a surprise when the stone is about to be purchased by Drax, and Cassandra ends up with the diamond.
Silas saves Cassandra from an attack by Drax and he, Kai, and Tessa convince her to come with them. The rest of the story takes place in Hawaii, and I will let you love it for yourself. I really like the narrator and I think you will too.
I was gifted a copy of this audio book by the author. My review is voluntary.
FINALLY - Silas' story! I have been waiting for this since the first book. There is no way that I imagined how Silas was going to resolve his love with Moira. Not only did I love how this played out, but there turned out to be more depth in both Silas and Moira than expected. Cassandra is such a strong personality, it is no surprise that she ends up in the middle of a dragon war. I really enjoyed her interactions with the others and her addition to Kao Point.
The narrator, Kelsey Osborne, has recently become one of my new favorites for the way that she spins the story in a true storyteller manner – as if you were sitting in front of her listening as she draws the magic of the words out. When I started listening I did find that I wanted to slow the speed down. (I'm generally a 1.0x speed listener). The beginning of Love of the Dragon was like when a someone is over excited and wants to get something out as fast as they can to you. It got better as the story progressed. It was still fast paced when there were points of danger or heightened awareness. As the end of the story built up and was resolved, everything was at a pretty good pace for me personally. I enjoyed the overall story and narration.
I liked the love story and the story itself. It peeked my interest and kept it. I love books that actually has a story to it that last longer than 5 pages. I’ll continue to listen to this authors books.
Silas gets his story. Really good character development and interaction. Cassandra brings out a different side of Silas. There is an undeniable attraction between the two of them when they first meet. She has something Silas needs, so he takes her protection upon himself and takes Cassandra back to Hawaii with him.
This book brings the previous books together, but it's not necessary to have read the others in order to follow this one.

Evil Villain - Oh Yeah!
Silas and Cassandra are wonderful characters. He has been wound too tight all through the series. She is the perfect woman to loosen him up. Reading this was great and listening is great as well. A wonderful story with lots of action. I can;t wait to find out what happens next but I am gonna miss these characters. I loved the mention of Twin Moon Ranch and Blue Moon Saloon. Definitely recommend it.
this was amazing... i love kelsey so much.. she brings so much life to the emotions of anna lowe's story... i loved this one so much also.. this whole series is amazing and the audios are as amazing as the stories..
This action packed story will have things lining up for Silas to confront the dragon who stole his family's fortune and the woman he thought he loved. But when his true love comes into his life with the fifth spirit stone, can he let down his guard to have his chance at Love? The dragon fight was well written and edge of your seat thrilling. I received a complimentary audio and I am giving a review voluntarily.
I totally loved this story! Silas has been a favorite character of mine since book 1. There is just something about a brooding fiercely protective dragon that I can’t resist. Ms. Lowe did an excellent job of telling Silas and Cassandra’s love story. It was so enjoyable to listen to their back and forth bantering. I especially loved the scene where Cassandra teased Silas about his library and the books being out of order.
We finally got to hear and see Drax and Moira and they were both as evil as the previous books indicated. Moira was worse than Drax, imo. After hearing the whole backstory of her and Silas and her behavior in this story, I truly hated her and wished she met the same fate as her slimy evil boyfriend.
I’m looking forward to the final installment of the series with fox shifter, Ella.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of the audiobook.
I was so afraid that this was the last one in this series and I am overjoyed that is not! The stories of this small group of shifters fires the imagination. True love, action, and hot sex!
