Dragon's Fate - Valerie Twombly
One touch will prove fatal.
Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take Lileta as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death.
His only choice is to grant her freedom.
Abducted as a teen, and later purchased by a dragon Overlord, Lileta’s venomous touch remains her only safeguard as a slave. When the demon’s rebellious nature brings about a brutal punishment, Caleb steps in and takes her as his own. As if having the sexy dragon save the day isn’t bad enough, she soon realizes they are destined to be together.
Mating is out of the question.
The abduction of a goddess intertwines their paths once again, spiraling them to the brink of passion. Unable to resist their fatal desire, the two must trust fate and hope they don’t destroy each other.
