Curiosity is a dangerous thing and temptation a death wish. Especially for someone like Vivienne with her complicated past and closely guarded secrets. Yet when she has a chance to get near the enemy because of a sexy dragon shifter haunting her dreams, she doesn’t think twice. Even if it means seeking out a paranormal dating agency and tagging along incognito to scope him out as her best friend goes on a date with him.
Kage knows within minutes of meeting Vivienne that she isn’t who she pretends to be. As the right hand man of the enemy, it’s his job to figure out if she’s a threat. More so, if she’s a risk to his hidden agenda and well laid plans. Soon enough, he realizes the only danger she poses is to his hardened heart. After all, there’s no defense against the scorching desire dragons feel when they find their long lost mate.
Excerpt
2 (less spicy)
Julie, the one
who had contacted Gerri about finding a date, was an attractive redhead.
Beautiful most might say if they were of a mind to better appreciate her. And
he would. After a few more cupcakes. Right now he was still recovering. The
other, Julie’s assistant, Vivienne, was a mousy blond with thick tinted glasses
and a bad slump.
Yet there was
something about her that seemed…off.
He inhaled and
detected no scent outside the usual female interest. He saw red and looked
through his dragon eyes. Nothing there either. All he could detect was
synthetic hair. So she wore a wig. Many women did on occasion. At least in his
clandestine circles. 
But this wasn’t
one of his clandestine circles.
“Julie, meet
Kage,” Gerri cut into his thoughts. “He’s currently a Navy pilot.”
Yeah, only
because he couldn’t spread his own wings and fly.
Until then, an
F/A-18 Super Hornet would have to do.
“Kage, meet
Julie,” Gerri continued, that same glint of amusement still in her eyes. “She
runs her own P.I. business.”
He did his best
not to choke on his cupcake. Julie, with her thundering heart and flushed skin,
was no private investigator. Not based on her noticeable reaction to him. But
Vivienne? His eyes slid her way. Now there was a steady, practiced heart rate.
There was someone barely breaking a sweat despite that uncomfortable wig and
bulky wool suit.
When the oven
buzzer went off in the kitchen, Gerri smiled. “Ah, the vanilla cupcakes are
done.” She stood and looked at Julie. “Mind helping me get them out of the
oven? It’ll only take a moment.”
Shouldn’t she be
asking Vivienne? The one he wasn’t here to meet?
“Of course,
vanilla’s my favorite,” Julie chirped and leapt up so quickly Kage knew she
wanted to be here about as much as he did. So what was the deal? Was she
swindled into this too?
Or did this go
deeper?
He had spent
half his life looking over his shoulder, so he had a pretty good eye for
deception. A masterful eye, some might say. His gaze slid back to Vivienne. She
hadn’t spoken once. Maybe it was time she did.
“So what made
you decide to come along with your boss to a dating agency, Vivienne?”
He liked the
feel of her name on his tongue.
Vivienne.
He focused on
her lips as she licked them quickly and murmured, “Moral support.”
“Ah,” he
whispered, his gaze still lingering on those full, lipstick-free pouty lips.
They were about the only thing she hadn’t been able to hide. Because she was
trying to hide, wasn’t she?
Let’s see if he
could rattle her.
“So I assume
Julie knows I’m a shifter or she wouldn’t have reached out to Gerri for a
date.” He perked a brow. “It’s not every day a girl’s interested in meeting a
dragon.” He lowered his voice in light-hearted warning. “After all, we run a
little aggressive in the bedroom.”
Vivienne
swallowed, her voice suddenly husky. “I’m sure Julie knows what she’s doing.”
“But do you?” he
nearly said as a slow grin crept onto his face. She liked what she heard. Yet
there was still no scent of arousal. Strange. And telling. 
This woman
definitely wasn’t who she pretended to be.
