"Not at all what I was expecting, it was better " -- Lovers of Paranormal Reviewer

Desperate for treasure, a dragon resorts to thievery, but a knight steals her heart...

A shapeshifting dragon on the verge of starvation...

For Elaina Drake, sparkling jewels aren't a frivolous matter. Without more treasure for her hoard, she'll starve. On the run from her murderous father, she's desperate enough to steal--er, acquire.

A modern-day knight seeking redemption...

Disgusted by his father's immorality, Alexander Wyatt, Chicago's biggest corporate titan, is determined to be a man of honor. Yet the theft of a necklace, stolen by an exotic beauty at his latest fundraiser, threatens to destroy all his charitable work.

A predator made prey...

Passion ignites between thief and philanthropist, sparking a game of temptation where jewelry is the prize. But when Elaina's exposure jeopardizes Alex's life, she must choose: run again to evade her father--or risk both their lives for love.
