When Eirik, the only living dragon shifter, and prince of the Ean, killed her brother, Ciara was left alone to face her prophetic dreams. Now, in order to find the wolves' sacred stone and save all the Chrechte from destruction, she needs her rival's help.
Eirik was only protecting the children of his people, but that day in the forest left a mark on him as well. Controlling his dragon's fire is the most difficult thing he's ever done--until he and Ciara are forced to face not only their shared tumultuous past, but a hallowed bond stronger than they realize. As avowed adversaries and predestined mates, their quest ushers them into a world of great danger, and a passion hotter than the dragon's fire.

The fourth Children of the Moon installment (after Moon Burning) blends paranormal elements, the Scottish Highlands, and a passionate and emotionally riveting romance. Ciara is Chrechte, an ancient race of shape-shifters, and is one of the Faol, a group that can take on wolf form. When just 12 years old, Ciara observes her brother’s death, and her report of it leads her mother to commit suicide. Seven years later, Ciara’s vow to never care about anyone again is tested by Eirik, prince of the Ean raven-shifters. The Chrechte have started intermingling with humans for their survival, and Ciara learns that she alone has the power to save the entire race from extinction. Monroe draws stunningly evocative images of the experience of shifting shape, tender scenes between Ciara and her adoptive parents, sweet romances between side characters (including same-sex couples), and powerful passion between Eirik and Ciara. This engaging tale is utterly captivating from start to finish. (Sept.)
