A fire-breathing dragon, Moira O'Neal, was exchanged at birth for a Fae princess. Discovering the truth, she escapes the cage of the royal court and joins forces with the sexiest wereleopard on Earthworld. She fights the urge to mate and the trap that comes with it as they race against time to find the missing princess and a master of the black arts who covets her power.
Major Steve Taylor, a wereleopard in the Army For Light, partners with the impetuous Moira in the middle a dangerous mission where failure means all their deaths. Worse, his leopard decides Moira is his mate, leaving the man at war with his cat.
Dragon Child is LJ DeLeon's second book in the Warriors For Light series and the action and heat level continues from book 1. I loved book 2 and I feel the author found the right combination of action, intrigue and sex to make this book a real page turner where you can't wait to read the next page. If your haven't read book 1 I highly recommend that you read it first before you read this one otherwise you may feel a little lost with the plotline.
The story revolves around Moira, the Fae princess to the royal court and Major Steve Taylor, a wereleopard who is dedicated in leading the Army of Light and in battle against the evil plaguing Earth. There is so much happening and so may twists and turns occurring that you find yourself wondering what is going to be revealed next. It is difficult to talk about the storyline without spoiling it because this is one that you need to discover. What I can say is there are lots of surprises and the book ends with another cliffhanger that has me anxiously waiting for book 3.
The main premise of the story deals with Moira and Steve, along with the other regulars introduced in book 1, who are continuing their battle to destroy the leader of the evil uprising. In the midst of the war Moira is trying to unravel the mystery surrounding her identity and how it plays an importance in the battle for the Light. This doesn't mean that all the action is on the battlefield. We see action in the bedroom as Steve realizes Moira is his mate and the combustible passion between them makes some very hot and steamy scenes. One of the key parts in the story is can Moira accept this component in her life. With a hunk like Steve it is hard to believe that she needs to think about it.
I really enjoyed both characters and felt a connection to them especially to Steve. His love, passion devotion and loyalty makes him such a lovable character that at times I actually got upset with Moira and her inability to commit to him and to give in to such a prize like him.
This is one book you need to pick up as will be glued to the pages for it has everything to seduce readers: love, passion, action, heartache and a hunky guy who you would love be called his mate.
