This one wasn't as good for me as the first one which was a tad disappointing as I love Dragons, though having said that it was still a quick and easy read, especially since I think it finished at 91%?
Didn't mind the h, quite brave as she helped rescue the H. Story line was ok, didn't get to see or hear much from previous characters of Protection Inc.

This book definitely deserves 4.5 stars! There’s a good amount of action, dragon shifters, and that “you’re my mate” insta-love! I liked this one even better than book 1. So if you weren’t sure after book one, definitely give this series a chance!

I like Journey and how she stepped in to save Lucas back. But I missed Protection Inc. and the characters we met there in the last book. A sweet, quick read.

Lucas is the Protection Inc. resident dragon shifter. He's rich, and somewhat aloof as he keeps himself always a bit apart fro the rest of his team. He's also a prince in his homeland, and forced to comply with an arranged political marriage because he has not found his mate.

Journey is a free spirit who is a nanny in his homeland. She accompanies her young charge to a ball to celebrate the prince's return and upcoming engagement.

Eyes meet across a crowded room and a Cinderella story begins to u

2 1/2 stars. I was disenchanted by this story, it felt forced and not half as good as book one. The ending saved it from being rated lower. I am going to read the next one hopefully it will be better.

Another Attention Grabber

I thought I had read all of Zoe Chang's books when I finished reading about her firefighters and Got Shots. Those were two really awesome series. There was a lot of action but it was tied in with plenty of romance and when you add in the paranormal bent you get the best of the best. I'm really happy to have found this author.

But I've now discovered that Zoe Chant is a prolific author and has plenty of books left for me I read. I just finished "Defender Dragon" from the

This one is about Lucas, one of the members of Protection Inc., but it doesn't have much to do with it, since he left the group very early in the story.

This book was more like a fairy tale at the beginning, but I liked the twist at the end. Something that I noticed in the first book and that repeats in this one, and I appreciate it, is that the shifters are all protective with their mates, but the women prove that they are as capable of saving the shifters as they are of protecting them.

This is the second book in the Protection,Inc. series. This is a story of greed, kidnapping, imprisonment and friendship. In this story we find Prince Lucas having to honor a five year plan that if he or the princess of another country do not find their true mate they must marry. He has left Protection,Inc. in order to do so. None of the parts involved are pleased that five years have come to pass.
Lucas and Raluca are at their ball when he sees his mate setting off a series of events no one ex

Lucas and Journey

It was a ok read. Well I am sure I was a fantastic read but I really not into royal type of stories. I understand that things have to move fast but it really felt rushed to me. Find mate, breaking engagement, save mate, tell mate about been a dragon, she believes it, and have sex with mate, all this in the same night!!!!! It is a bit much for me to even pretend I liked the book. So different from the previous one. I am disappointed but not enough to stop me from wanting to read

Great series!!

I love when an author grabs your attention and sucks you right into the book. The story is about a sexy dragon shifter (Lucas), who needs to find his mate before he's forced to fly home and marry a princess he doesn't love. Talk about arranged marriages. This book has it all, including the not so nice relatives that will do what needs to be done to see that he doesn't find his true mate. Definitely recommend the book, the series and most definitely the author. I loved it and can't

Another great book from Zoe Chant . loved it and the dragon Lucus and journey's story . He was a bodyguard who was a prince that had to go back home to marry due to not finding his mate but things changed during a ball when he met Journey and she was his mate but politics got in the way and danger lurked for them both . The story had them winning in the end and returning back to the US . can't wait to read the next one

Liked it!

This was a book that I felt was well written. As the storyline line begins and a misunderstanding takes place, I thought nooooo! Please don't take this story down a long and winding chapter eating path based on a misunderstanding that could be easily fixed had the characters just talked. But this talented author once again provided what I have come to think of as her story signature that keeps me one clicking! Likeable characters, limited strife and quick resolution!

The Prince Reluctant

Lucas is the crown Prince of a small European countries, betrothed to a Princess in another. He's been trying to find his mate to avoid the wedding neither want. Then he finds her. Bad guys try to hurt her, then him. Then freedom? For the Princess? For Lucas and Journey? Travel? Good story, fun read.

Like the first book in the series, this was almost ridiculously enjoyable. These books are fairy tales and daydreams, and they leave me with a sense of uncomplicated happiness. Also, who wouldn't want a Lucas?

This was not really bad, but it was like most shifter stories...
Big protective male, small defenseless woman, evil wants to keep them apart, but they are fated so they can't keep their hands off each other...

Loved this story

Lucas and Journey make an excellent couple. When Lucas is poisoned, by his uncle, Journey stays right with him until he heals. Plenty of excitement in this story. I am looking forward to reading the next story.

When you put loyalty before everything. Being forced home to a loveless marriage, only to find the one thing you have been searching for the last five years. Mate the one word that means everything.

This was another great book by Zoe. I have several of her books but since they are a little pricey I have to wait until they have a price drop. I really wish I could get the all but I have a budget that I have to stick to.

Cinderella type story with action, plot twist, romantic and excitement to keep the enjoyment rolling. I have a twisted mind so I also found humor to add to the enjoyment.

Maybe 3.5 stars.
Very different from the first book of the series, which was unexpected. The setting in the beginning felt a bit off, but the action parts later in the story were pretty good. Always good when the heroine does some life saving 😉
