Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a 1,000-year-old secret. But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absentminded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire....
When Dr. Faith Reynold stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears to have come from a dragon, she's completely taken aback. A woman of science, there's no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith's curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She's never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man - as well as the dragon within? Contains mature themes.

This was another good read from the Dragon Kind series. This one is about Dmitri and Faith who meet at an archeological dig on the island that Dimitri ruled as the dragon king, eons ago. Faith has uncovered a dragon skeleton and Dmitri goes there to figure out how he could have left one of his dragons there alone when he sent all his whites across the dragon bridge.
Of course, the dark fae turn up and Dimitri and Faith have to kill them, but not before they kill two of Faith’s dig members. Feeling things were getting worse they decided to take the skeleton back to Dreagan, and things only got worse. This was the most exciting Dragon King book so far, IMO.
I do like that Ms. Grant moves from one person to another: From Rhi to Ulrik, to Mikkel, to Balladyn and Taraeth. It makes the book so much better and a lot more interesting spending time with the other players and not always at Dreagan with Dmitri and Faith. Oh, and I really liked the 2 or 3 conversations between Rhi and Con about Usaeil, considering how much they dislike each other. Are they suddenly allies?
The ONLY thing I absolutely HATED about this book, (other than the narration)? The hero was DIMITRI and Faith called him MUSCLES 85 times. Totally ridiculous! God, I just hate stupid pet names. It lost a star because I cringed every time she said that name.
There is explicit sex in this book and the F-bomb was used 12 times.
As to the narrator: I’m absolutely done with Anthony Ferguson. I gave him another chance with Smoke and Fire, which was released 4/5/16 and then again with this book, released 3/7/17 and still he sucks, no matter what his fans say. His women’s voices sound terrible and he doesn’t read with any feeling whatsoever when a female is talking. I had to give up on the sex scene it was so bad.
I do think that listening to the book was time well spent in order to get a few answers and move the story along.
My favorite character was Faith because she was kind and open minded as well as a brilliant Doctor.
The performance could have been a million times better using a new narrator. Antony Ferguson is so played to the point that all of the characters are beginning to blend together. He did a horrible job with Faith's voice, which made it hard to focus on the story line. In addition, one is left with an anticlimactic feeling knowing that Con and Rhi does not hook up. I am beginning to lose interest.
I think it is fair to say that Donna Grant is one of my favorite authors. She does a brilliant job! I just think the narrator does a terrible job with women voices. I would like to suggest that Ms. Grant obtain an additional narrator for female voices such as Victoria McGloven.
