Gwennore is an Elf able to track down the cause of a certain illness and heal it―a valuable asset to her people. But when she is thrust into the realm of the dragons, she discovers a haunted place of power, passion, and magic―one that is plagued by an ancient curse. When she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, Gwen knows she’s entered a whole new world of trouble. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon. So why does making a deal with the devil feel so good?

Silas has no way of saving the royal family he’s served for years. But when a beautiful, innocent elf comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to desire in a way he’s never felt before. But how can he trust a sworn enemy. . .and how can he live without her,


This is the 3rd book in this romantic series. I didn't read the first 2 but I didn't feel it was completely necessary to understand what was happening.  I loved the different characters and the whole world that Sparks created.

Gwen and her niece get kidnapped to appease a Queen whose mind is slowly deteriorating.  Captured by a dragon she learns she can hear the dragons speaking. When she gets to this new land and meets the mad Queen she discovers that the Queen is being poisoned and that is what is taking her mind. Silas begs her to help the Queen and his country who have been plagued by infertility. Reluctantly she agrees.

Filled with intrigue and dragons this is a fun book with more courtship and romance than sex.
