Marie Johnston is one of those writes that can go back and forth between the paranormal and the contemporary without issue. This is book one in her new shifter series, and she is focusing on dragon shifters. Deacon and Ava meet when he rescues her father, and he tricks her into pledging an oath to him. They have an instant connection, but Ava has a hard time believing that Deacon is sincere because she has been hurt recently by an ex. This book focuses a lot on the building of this new Silver Dragon world, but while it does this, we still get a well-rounded and finished HEA. We meet Deacon’s brothers, and snippets into who their heroines might be. I really enjoyed this story, which deals with shifters and mates a little bit differently than other books. If you aren’t sure if you would like a shifter series, then this is a great book to start.
