Taryn of Vanir has spent her entire life fearing the dragons that rule the mountain ranges bordering her father's kingdom.
They are vicious, cruel beasts who care only for gold and how much chaos they can cause.
When a knight discovers an heirloom that belonged to Taryn’s mother, the king of Vanir finally has proof that the dragon responsible for her death is alive and well in the mountains. It’s the tipping point in a war that’s been brewing for years.
Niressa, the teal and rose dragon, comes for her stolen treasure, intent on forcing the kingdom to return what is hers. When the beast takes Taryn as penance, instead, Taryn knows she must fight for her life. The dragons of Lazeorat will defend their hoardes with their lives—and murder to build it—and Taryn has no intention of being another treasured piece of the hoarde.
But when the dragon transforms into a beautiful woman, the princess finds herself questioning everything she has ever been told.
Could the beasts in the mountains be more than the murderous creatures they’ve been painted as?
She thought she wanted to escape, but suddenly, being treasured doesn’t sound so bad, after all . . .
