He’s the man of her dreams
A long time ago, Zander Lorens was cursed to walk the earth stripped of his Dragon Clan powers. Every night, trapped in a recurring nightmare, Zander relives his darkest moment. He can hardly believe it when the dream changes and a beautiful young woman appears. Zander believes she’s the key to ending his torment. Finding her in the real world is one thing, but how will he convince her of who—and what—she really is?
She’s the end to his nightmare
Rena McHale uses her unique sensitivity as a private investigator, touting herself as a “human divining rod” and finder of the lost. By day she struggles with sensory overload, and by night her sleep is haunted by a fiery dragon shifter. Nothing in her life makes sense, until the man from her dreams shows up at her door with a proposition…
Amoveo Rising is a new series spin-off that left me wanting to know more. Mystery abounds leaving you to hang tightly. The story drew me in deeply and now I must read the original series to get the whole back story.
I jumped into Undiscovered not sure what to expect. I expected dragons but really didn’t know it was a spin off series. While characters came in from a past series, I didn’t feel lost. Nope, I felt intrigued enough to go buy to original series.
Zander Lorens and his twin brother were cursed when they fought over the same woman they both thought they loved. Zander is forced to stay in his human form, while his brother was imprisoned in his dragon form, trapped in hibernation. But everything changes when Zander meets someone in his dreams along with his brother. The dream relives the night when everything went wrong, but a new player is in the game: Rena.
Being a PI is an easy career for Rena. Her extra powers of touching items and knowing where people are has made it easy for her to take over the business from a man who took her in and became her mentor. Now in nursing home, she takes care of him the best she can. Now she can’t sleep with the dreams taking her in and reliving the night dragons fight over her, but one time it all changes.
What a shit show. Yep. He was fucked. Again.
Zander and Rena meet and communicate in this dream, convincing Zander that Rena is his brother’s mate. His one true love that will save them both and heal his brother. Road trip! Time is counting down and now Zander must deliver Rena to his brother before it’s too late for them both, but can Zander stop the lust he feels for Rena and keep from betraying his brother again?
“Staring at my boobs after you barge into my office is a ballsy move, my friend.”
Rena is a feisty heroine! She doesn’t really understand her powers, nor what she really is made up of, but she uses her powers for gain. No wilting flower here, but also not willing to be a sacrifice for someone she doesn’t know, nor thinks she will love. Fighting her attraction to Zander is something she does fiercely, but also she realizes it isn’t the brother she wants, but Zander himself.
Zander has a single focus – free his brother and return them back to the shifters they are. The Amoveo is not aware dragons exist as they were hunted down to extinction after what the brothers did. Zander feels great guilt over it all, but also a stubbornness that often irritated me. He can’t seem to believe that maybe Rena is his mate, not his brother. Instead he feels they are committing the same mistake they had so many years ago.
The intimacy of this book didn’t get going very fast. It kind of was lack luster until someone made up their minds. We meet other couples within the Amoveo and learn about the half-breeds and what exactly Rena is. The action cultivates into a fierce battle that leaves you breathing heavy and hoping for everyone. We learn just what everyone can do.
I loved each character that I met. The captured my interest and made me want to know more about this world the author created. The heroine was strong and knows what she wants. The hero is conflicted and trying to do his best for everyone, but himself. Evil still reigns on, while Good tries to triumph above all. This is an engaging story that makes you want the next book….like now!
This series is new to me and I can’t wait to read more.
I also found mountains in this story for my Literary Pickers Challenge.
Need a song to go with the book? Might I suggest….
