She should be his mortal enemy.

Ancient dragon shifter Rhys awoke from his slumber hungry for revenge against the witch who killed his sister. When his hunt takes him to the rebuilding city of New Orleans, he finds a woman he can’t keep his eyes off—but she’s a witch. While Rhys wants to despise all of Dallas’s kind, even he can’t deny that she's beautiful, kind and…adorable. And her pet baby dragon only increases his fascination with the sexy woman. Protective instincts he never knew he had take over him as they hunt powerful monsters. He’s forced to confront everything he thought he knew about witches as his life is turned upside down.

But he wants her anyway.

Dallas Kinley is used to being hated because of what she is. Witches have always been the pariahs of the supernatural community. Until now, when the world needs rebuilding. Even though she wants to keep her distance from Rhys, vampires and humans are dying in New Orleans, so she vows to help him hunt down those responsible. But finding the enemy comes at a heavy price, because Dallas is hiding a terrible secret. As they race against the clock to find the murderers, she can only hope his need for revenge won’t rip them apart. Especially when he finds out what she’s been hiding from him.

Author note: Book can be read as a stand-alone complete with HEA.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


By SpiceWith a hot broody dragon on a quest for revenge, a sweet but surprisingly badass little witch with secrets and the most adorable baby dragon, Ancient Enemy was just a huge helping of amazeballs topped with awesome sauce.

Dallas and Rhys were everything I’d hoped they’d be. I felt for Rhys and his struggle between being drawn to Dallas and fulfilling his need to take out the evil witch.  Dallas definitely had the Mary Sue thing going on which is usually a huge no for me, but there was so much more to her than all that sweetness, I didn’t care. Together these two were dynamite and when they finally combusted, it was freaking awesome.

But as badass and amazing as they were, it’s Willow who stole the show. Everyone needs their own little baby wild dragon. And if that was enough awesomeness, when you add in all the cameos from some of my favorite couples from the Darkness series, I found myself having all kinds of fun in my paranormal happy place. And believe you me, I did not want to leave it when I read that last sentence. I can’t wait to read  the next book in this series!
