Sometimes life gives you something magical -- if Drill can rescue a dragon that is.

The Old Tavern Club is a front for a shifter rescue organization. The BDSM club works well in keeping the owner’s true purpose secret, but when Pirou makes an unusual rescue, it might just be beyond the clubs purview. So he calls in Drill, the owner’s brother.

What a cool idea to have a shifter rescue hidden away in a BDSM club. While it’s sad that such a thing is needed in this world, it’s good to know that someone as nice as Pirou, who works for the owner, is around to watch out for those who need help. And in this first book of the ‘Shifter Rescue’ series he has come up with what must be one of the most unusual kind of shifter: a dragon.

Drill owns three golf clubs and makes good money. He is a wolf-bear hybrid shifter, so when he gets called in to
A basic Sean Michael bit of fluffy brain candy.

The Old Tavern Club is an excellent front for rescuing shifters. As active BDSM club, it helps disguise their activities and keeps the purpose a secret. When Pirou rescues one shifter, he is not quite sure what to do with him. He calls in the owner’s brother, Drill. Drill never knew dragon shifters exist but as he works with the shifter, he begins to think that he is his perfect sub.

There is nothing better than a story with dragons. Az, the dragon, was quite scared. He was afraid of the darts an

Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

I did like this one but also find myself with mixed feelings about some aspects of it. I love dragons and I really haven’t read enough dragon shifter stories in my opinion, so I was looking forward to reading this one for that part of it alone. Bearing in mind that the dragon in question hasn’t shifted into a man but maybe a couple of times by the start of this story, I was willing to give some leeway in his behavior at times since I figure he’s still learni

This was just damn adorable. That is all I can think to call it. Yes it was sexy too, but really Az and Drill together are just damn adorable.

This was a cute and sweet little story about a dragon that was captured by slavers and rescued by a shifter organization that runs out of a BDSM club. Love that part as well. Az is young and not use to humans or their ways, so he is scared.

Drill is the owner's brother and a wolf-bear hybrid. He takes one look at dragon Az and knows he will do anything for
Kind of cute, but incomplete feeling.

Also, Drill...I got the impression that while Drill isn't a bad guy he wants Az for the wrong reasons.. like for the novelty of it. That later changes but mostly that was my feeling.

Drill, a wolf/bear hybrid... does that mean he can shift into both? All we see is a big wolf. Or what about some weird hybrid of the two also? This is also incomplete as far as I can see... no real background on him.

I wasn't expecting Az to be so...simpleton. In that, he doesn't k
Makes me sad to have to do this... because dragons. But I just couldn't connect with this one. Maybe because Az just comes across as incredibly young, (maybe too innocent/naive to give proper consent?) so I was unfortunately too squicked to enjoy this as much as I'd hoped.

Favorite Quote:
A dragon's laughter was an amazing thing

This story of a dragon, Az, is about a gentle creature, not the usual fire breathing kind. He was captured by slavers and was rescued, and now has his very own Keeper. The story is short, about love. I enjoyed it immensely.

I'm reffering from a review on this one. Maybe the cover should have warned me
Not bad but very short. i think sometimes this author likes to let the readers imagination fill in the blanks...
We really learned very little about this world and these characters.
