Death comes for everyone. Even Drake Chandali. The aging process that twists all unmated dragon shifters’ bodies into something useless has taken hold of his body centuries early. A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late.

Holy smokes the deceit and lies in this world of Dragons just keeps getting more intense as each book reveals just who is a Mate and who is the enemy. The old guard that control the way Dragons find a Mate are pushing everyone to find the one woman who can heal the rotting King. A Dragon who goes unmated for more than a thousand years slowly decays but if the King forcibly mates with the wrong woman his fire will quite literally burn her alive !
Drake understands the dangers of not finding your M
They hide among us, fiery dragon shifters with their slow ageing process, their soul deep loyalties to their clans and their desperate search for their fated mates, for to never find them will mean certain decline and death. Drake is coming to the end of his life, he has no hope of finding his mate, so he leaves his brothers behind only to come face to face with a woman he rescued months before from a raging fire. For all of the sexual tension between them, Drake knows Camilla is human, or is sh ...more

Drake and Cami were a delightful, stubborn and sexy pair.

I am so excited to be back with these HOT firefighting dragon shifters, and to meet some new ones in The Enforcer, the third book of the Fire’s Edge series by Abigail Owen.

Drake was the only one who could save the family surrounded by fire, but because he is unmated, his body rebelled in his hurry to save them. It is Cami’s family that he rescues.

She is not afraid of him. She has issues of her own, no one to turn to for help, until…Rune. He just happens to be in the vicinity. He is a rogue, a dr
Drake is a grumpy Gus, but he gets the job done and he does it well. His word is a good as gold. As his body continues to fail him though, Drake knows his time is up on finding his dragon mate. However, he was hoping for just a little more time before he has to say goodbye to those closest to him. Joining with this new group of dragons isn’t...ideal exactly, and darned if the human female he risked life and limb to save is staying with this motley crew. But who’s mate could she be? Certainly not ...more

The Enforcer by Abigail Owen is book three in her Fire’s Edge series. This was my introduction to this author, and it was a pleasant experience. The author provides adequate backstory from earlier books in this series, so I was able to completely follow the story. Each novel in the series is a standalone, but the backstory was still helpful.

Drake Chandali is a red dragon shifter. Camilla “Cami” Carillo is a dragon shifter mate, though neither of them are aware of this initially. Of course Cami

I liked this one, I really did. But even so, it took me too long to finish because I was so easily able to put it aside for other things. I don't know, I guess it just didn't suck me in despite everything I liked. I really liked how this time the female mc already knew about dragons and the whole mating thing by the time she meets her mate. I also got pretty excited that this one was bringing in some things from The Rogue King. I really liked that book.

I like Drake. Liked him from the last book too. This one wasn't quite as exciting as the others were, but it's still Dragons, so it still grabbed my attention. I do wish there had been a bit more action with Drake, a little less moping on his part (snarling I guess would be a better, more manly word, but moping is what he was doing), but I guess it's to be expected considering he's convinced he's dying the whole time.

As for Cami, there really wasn't enough time given to her. She could have turne

Drake is a dragon shifter and he's dying because he hasn't found his mate. When a dragon shifter doesn't find his mate, he eventually starts to get weak, sick and die. The process started earlier than it should have for Drake and he knows it's just a matter of time. So he leaves his team mates and takes refuge with Rune who has been helping to keep some female mates safe.

Cami is staying with Rune and the other female mates when Rune brings Drake to stay with them but Drake is not well and very

I love the Fire's Edge and Inferno Rising series from Abigail Owen. This is the third book in the Fire's Edge series and it builds into what we have already seen and there is a cross over with the first Inferno Rising series (which seems to take place at roughly the same time as this one and there are some cross over events). This book does work as a stand-alone, but really you should read the other books first, just because they are so good.

Smoking hot dragons, yes this book is full of them 🔥

Drake is the main man in this story and his a little gruff, well he has a good reason - his body is dying as he hasn't found his mate in his lifetime.

Cami is a woman with strong family roots, she's also showing signs of being a mate and she seems drawn to Drake.

There are lots of twists in the dragon world, who's good and who's bad, the lines seem to blur sometimes but keeps you intrigued.

The love and lust between Cami and Drake is hot, and all

A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late. To protect his team of enforcers, he leaves, and comes face to face with the woman he’d thought was human when he saved her from a fire months before.

This series just keeps on getting better and better. The Enforcer is here and I've just been waiting to get my hands on Drake's story. I refused to accept that he was too late to find his mate, it just wasn't a possibility in my mind. And of course, Abigail would NEVER do something like that to us.
Drake's story was well worth the wait and I was living for every single moment of it. There were soooo many moments that just really tore my heart apart. I hated how Drake was already accepting things

The Enforcer (Fire's Edge Book 4) by Abigail Owen
This is a “DRACARYS” HOT romance that will heat you up!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
The Enforcer is about a dragon shifter (Drake) who has split loyalties between his law enforcer team and the rogue dragon Rune who harbors and shelters dragon mates to save them from the corrupt and murderous King. Finding and mating your one true mate is the only thing that can save and lengthen a male dragons life but, once mated, if one mate dies so does the other.

I liked the central romance in this one between Drake and Camila but the story suffers from trying to tell too many other stories at the same time. The author has two simultaneous series - Fire's Edge and Inferno Rising. This is part of Fire's Edge, a group of firefighting dragons who work as forestry hotshot smokejumpers, dealing with man made and dragon made fires.

Drake has an incurable early aging disease that is weakening him, and the only way it will abate is if he finds his proper mate. T

I love a down trodden hero story! Make it paranormal and I just want to sigh..... This is the 3rd book in the series and although it could be read as a stand alone, I think it is helpful to read them in order in order to understand the world building.

Drake is dying and he wants to do whatever he can to ease his passing on his band of brothers and his baby sister. He does not feel worthy to have a mate and is determined to be growly and pushy so no one gets close.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I must admit that I enjoyed it so much. Drake is coming to the end of his life. Knowing he has no hope of finding a mate he leaves his brothers behind only find the woman he rescued from a fire months before. Drake knows that Camilla is human so the draw he feels for her doesn't make sense. While Camilla bears the mark of a dragon mate she does believe in dragons. Is she now his savior or is his decline to far.

This one sat better with me than the previous book. I always like dark and broody men, add in a dragon shifter and we have hit the trifecta!

Drake, a Huracan enforcer, is dying. He has been hiding it from his team and his sister but he is deteriorating at a faster rate than he expected so he has to fess up. He leaves with Rune only to come into contact with Cami. The woman he rescued, along with her family and goats, from a fire the previous summer.

Drake is sick and knows he's dying. He leaves the Hurcan team and turns to a former enemy for a place to die. There is meets Camilla again. He rescued her and her family during a wildfire. Drake feels better when he's near her, but refuses to believe that she is his mate. They have to go back to help her family, and The Alliance is interfering with stuff again. When will these guys go away. Maybe the other series (Inferno Rising) and the new kings will get rid of them. ...more

The Enforcer (Fire’s Edge, #3) by Abigail Owen This book was pretty much more of the same as the previous entries in this series. Interesting enough and I liked the characters but nothing that really blew my skirts up. Still, glad I stumbled across this series and that I could check them out from Hoopla. 3.5 stars ...more
Oooh! I love how complicated everything is getting. I can’t wait for this one to cross over with the Inferno Rising series. Drake & Cami were a great couple! Also now that I’ve read this one, I do like Skylar more (from The Blood King).

Pro tip: read this series & Inferno Rising at the same time in order. They are interconnected and it’s a very enjoyable experience to read them all!
This one was a DNF for me. From the first encounter with Cami I was completely turned off by her character. She was just so immature and rude. I made it a couple of chapters in before I had to just end it.

Sparks are certainly flying in this dragon shifter paranormal romance!

Whenever I begin one of these dragon shifter romances, I always find myself surprised how determined these men often are to ignore the signs that their mate is right in front of them. Of all the books in this series so far though, I would have to say that Drake had the most compelling and understandable reason. All of the signs point to say that Camilla is his destined mate, staring him right in the face. Her proximity, her to

This felt different from the other books in the series, in a new and exciting way! It felt like a turning point in the series, and I love that it signals even more wonderful books full of daring women and courageous men...dragons. The history behind the heroine was particularly interesting, hearing about her family and their way of life, inserting the normal into the paranormal storyline. Each story continues to capture my attention and make me wish for it to be real.

“Her heart thundered away against the inside of her ribs, the sound loud in the relative silence of the room and the flutter pulsing against his skin between their clothes. Her breathing pushed her breasts against her shirt. Against him.

Despite the fear pumping adrenaline through her system, she gazed at him with wide eyes that showed an inexplicable trust that grated against him like a sandpaper sponge bath.

“What are you going to do to me?” she whispered.

Almost like she was daring him.

“You’re a mate,” he said.


“Mates are like catnip to my kind—an obsession, a driving urge to find our own. What if I took you now, claimed you, pushed my fire into you?”

Her lips fell open on a silent gasp, but fear didn’t reflect back at him even still. “You’d kill me if you aren’t my destined mate.”

So, someone had at least warned her of the deadly consequences should the wrong man try to turn her. Had she listened? He squeezed her wrists a little harder, pressing into her so she couldn’t mistake the heavy cock pressing into her belly. “Yes.”

“You’d lose a part of your soul as well,” she pointed out.

He allowed his lips to tip up in what he fully intended to be a menacing smile. “Perhaps it’s worth it.”

She stared back at him for a long minute. Then, suddenly, her heart quieted, her breathing slowed, her body relaxing under his. “Go ahead.”

She was fucking daring him. Inside his head, his dragon growled, but not a warning, more like approval. The animal side of him liked this woman.

That scared the hell out of him enough to have him fighting the foreign urge to scramble off her.

When he said nothing, she tipped her head. “Just like I thought. All bark.”

Bulls facing off against a matador in a ring dealt with less provocation than this woman was daring to throw at him.

“You talk a good game,” she continued. “But you won’t hurt me.”

Irritation spiked and swirled with a rushing need that had gripped him since the second she’d stepped in front of him in the hangar and he’d recognized her.

Drake slammed his mouth over hers, his kiss both full of frustration, but also determined to frighten her into some semblance of self-preservation. He kissed her harshly, wildly, even as he continued to pin her to the bed.

Except she didn’t whimper or turn away or struggle. Instead, Cami opened her mouth and licked the full seam of his lips, demanding entrance.


Gods help him, he opened, tangling his tongue with hers, reveling in the give and take. Her flavor melted across his tongue, sweet and tart at the same time, imprinting on his mind.

A glow vaguely penetrated his senses behind his closed eyes, followed by a burst of heat that seemed to be originating from her.

Almost as fast as it happened, Drake jerked back with a hiss, staring at a glowing spot under her white tank top. The source of the heat.

Definitely a dragon mate. Which meant off-limits. Another shifter’s mate.

With a groan he rolled away from her, flopping to his back, and flung an arm over his eyes, doing his damnedest to convince his dick to get its head out of the game. “You need to get out of here.”
