Night’s Awakening ~
Meet the hero ~
Guy is wholly unprepared for his life to be shaken to its very core when he saves a woman who has trespassed onto their land and decided to go caving in their mountain. While everyone else is worried what she might have seen, Guy is more concerned with the way he can't stay away from Elena or her very tempting lips.
Never once has he turned his back on his fellow Dragon Kings, but for Elena he would do anything just to keep her near him. Even if it meant going against everything it was to be a King.
Dragon Color: Red
Power: Erase Memories
Favored Region: Desert
Fueled by dragon magic, the dark immortal warriors were never meant to feel human desire, much less fall in love. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shape-shifting warriors, meets Elena Griffin—a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core—all bets are off…
Having left America to explore the Scottish Highlands, Elena suddenly finds herself lost in a dark cave—alone, injured, and utterly hopeless…until Guy appears from out of nowhere. Is she dreaming her own rescue when she falls into his arms? A man—and a passion—this strong is too good to be true. It’s only a matter a time before she learns the truth about the flames in his heart. And the dragon in his soul…

It took every ounce of Elena’s concentration, on where and how she put her hands and feet, so as not to die that she couldn’t carry on the conversation Sloan tried to have with her.
Elena had heard caving was a sport, and she never realized she’d end up using every muscle in her body. She was gasping for breath when Sloan called for a break.
She didn’t hesitate to reach into her backpack and pull out a bottle of water, which she quickly downed. It was damp and chilly in the cave, but Elena was sweating and fast becoming dehydrated.
“Oh, look,” Sloan called from her seat on a boulder. Her head was tilted to the side and her light atop her helmet shone into the darkness. “There’s a shaft here. I think we should explore it.”
“I don’t think I can. I’m beyond tired, and we still have to go back. The muscles in my arms are shaking, I’ve used them so much.”
“I thought you said you worked out.”
Elena lowered the water bottle and tried not to glare. “Lifting a few weights in the gym along with running and doing kickboxing doesn’t equate to what I’ve put my body through today.”
As if Sloan hadn’t heard a word Elena said, she looked into the gap again. “It doesn’t look far. I think it’ll be fun.”
“No.” Elena had had enough. She couldn’t go any farther and feel safe. Her job was important, but not as essential as her life.
Sloan’s head swiveled to her. She stared at Elena for a moment before a slow smile spread. “Good for you. You need to learn to stand up to everyone, including me. Now rest here while I do a bit of exploring.”
“On your own?” Elena asked, her voice pitched high in disbelief.
“I won’t be but a moment. I’m just going to put a bolt into that rock, clip on a carabineer, and tie the rope to my sling, where I’ll slowly lower myself down.”
Elena was shaking her head before Sloan was finished. “Alone? Not a good idea.”
“I’ve done things like this alone before. It’ll be fine. Trust me.”
All Elena could do was watch as Sloan rigged everything together. And before she knew it, Sloan had her feet on the side of the crevasse as she leaned back ready to plunge into the darkness.
“I promise to stay close enough that you can hear my voice.”
