Get Touch of Ice by Mary Auclair NOW!!!
He is as cold as ice. She is the salvation that will melt his heart.
When Endora is faced with her daughter’s terminal illness, she takes the only chance she’s got. She braves the potential risks and signs a mating contract with the Delradon Draekon Lords, intent on using the payment to buy the aliens’ cure to save her daughter’s life.
Lord Aldric Darragon rules over his land with an iron fist until one day the only woman who is genetically compatible with him agrees to his offer of mating. As his all-consuming passion for Endora explodes, an ancient threat looms heavy over humans and Delradons alike. With the lives of everyone he cares about hanging in the balance, Aldric has to fight the demons of his past if he wants to defeat the enemies of the present.
Publisher’s Note: This gripping sci-fi alien romance has it all: dragons, passion and tension. It also contains explicit themes and is intended for adults only.
This was my first book by Mary, I was very intrigued with the blurb, the alien and dragon concept, I was well up for this – I was really happy with the majority of the book, its got a good storyline and some great characters!
Earth was about to self destruct with the humans warring against themselves, until the alien race, the Delradons, stepped in and took over, saving humanity and the earth whilst gaining themselves another world. The Delradon Lords have an intimate bond with a dragon for life, one is not born without the other, and should one die then so will the other. But they have fertility problems, and so the humans are tested for the compatibility to carry their children, most don’t pass and those that do have a big chance of dying during the process.
Lord Aldric was matched to a human a long time ago, but he saw she was happy with a human lover and left her alone to lead her life. Endorra was his match all those years ago, but she is now desperate so save her only child and cashes in her compatibility in an attempt to cure her child. But their connection is so much more than they could ever have dreamt, and feelings start to get involved where Endorra didn’t think for a chance that they would.
Of course, nothing is that simple, a cult from the Delradon’s home world has resurfaced where they believe their blood should be pure and not tainted by that of humans, and so assassinations start, Delradons and their dragons being killed by this unknown cult. Of course Endorra becomes prime target, as well as her child.
I loved the story line and the background for the dragons and the Delradons, their connection was very intimate and made for some excellent reading! I loved Aldric and how much he adored Endorra and how his beast would show through his passion for her.
But Endorra had a nasty habit of lying, which really put me off her quite a bit, yes I understood why she was doing it, but putting her child in danger seemed out of character and a step too far, even in order to keep the storyline moving.
Still I really enjoyed the rest and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
