Manic Monday | Drive-By Reviews ~ If You Can’t Stand the Heat …
Deep in the New Mexico desert there is a secret race on the brink of extinction—the pure-blood shapeshifters of the Dragonstar clan. And they have one last, desperate hope for survival…
Quinn Maguire is a powerful Dragonstar healer at a tragic loss, unable to cure the insidious disease killing off his people. Yet even in such dire circumstances the conservative Quinn is secretly disapproving of the alternative: Dr. Jasmine Kane, enlisted by the head of the Dragonstar clan to help abort the virus. She is a wild card. She is an outsider. She is human.
Decked out in black leather and a tough attitude, Jasmine clashes with Quinn in more ways than one. And when destiny chooses her for his Mate, he doesn’t know whether to rejoice or rebel. Because while Jasmine makes him burn hotter than any woman—dragon or human—ever has, their differences make a relationship impossible.
But when a rival infiltrates the clan and attacks Jasmine, Quinn becomes desperate. Jasmine is now the first human to be infected with the disease—and Quinn must do everything he can to find a cure, and save the woman he has grown to love.

Quinn Maguire, a 471-year old dragon, is the Dragonstar clan’s healer. He has been struggling to find a cure for the mysterious illness that has been killing his family and friends. Dylan, the clan leader, makes another bold move by allowing his mate, Phoebe to bring in her friend and hematologist to help. Jasmine (Jazz), on her way to the clan’s residence in New Mexico, has a tire blow-out and meets a sexy stranger in a bar. Jazz has no idea that the handsome stranger is Quinn. Thinking of their magical night as a one-night stand, she’s surprised to find, once she arrives at the clan residence, he’s the doctor she’s supposed to be helping. Their relationship is bumpy for much of the book. Jazz has had a rough past and refuses to let a man control her. Quinn does his best to deal with her ups and downs and his attraction to her, all while working day and night to save his people.
