So this was a case of judging a book by its cover (isn't it gorgeous?) and being right. How exciting is that! Scott writes her dragons wonderfully and their environment is just about perfect for them. Living in Vegas, no one really thinks twice when something crazy happens - and they have plenty of room to build up and house the dragon sanctuary. The dragons have jewels - that they are beyond just attached to. It was a very interesting relationship there.
How To Claim Your Dragon...
As the head of security of Vegas's Crown Jewel casino―and its hidden dragonshifter sanctuary―ice dragon Darius Dachien commands respect. Unfortunately, that respect isn't always reciprocated. In fact, when it comes to the stunning Mei Chen, hostility might be a better word. Which makes things even harder for Darius, since Mei is his dragon mate. Without her, his dragon form is fading fast... and once lost, will be gone forever.
Mei can't deny the fierce chemistry that simmers between them. If Darius were ever to discover who―or rather, what―she really is, she wouldn't just lose him, but her place with the dragonshifters. The moment Mei's past comes crashing into her present, she realizes her time for secrets has ended. Now she must reveal her true self... and risk both her life and her heart with the one man who could destroy her.
Mei is a bit different than the rest of the dragons though. She is hiding something from everyone and the secret is keeping her from acknowledging her true mate, Darius. Now this is a very bad thing to do because without her Darius will fade away. But he may prefer that once he learns what she has been hiding.
The story had a lot of adventure - some fist to fist as well as claw to claw fighting, and in the end the true hero that saves the day was a bit of a surprise. There is a hefty dose of dragon politics, but nothing that makes this book hard to read on its own. I loved almost all of it - with the exception of a few of the side interactions at Darius's club - they just didn't make a whole lot of sense. More like they were written in to give someone a place to go. But that is a small complaint compared to the goodness on the rest of the pages.
This is something dragon-shifter lovers should check out - I think it's one that will really stand out from the rest.
