He said he was flying on a silver dragon. He called me “Markus-meine.” Who would know all that? Who? And how?
SWAT cop and dragon shifter Mark Beteferoce had—and lost—a soul mate. He’s finally at the point where he can get through the days without thinking about what used to be…until he tastes Quincy O’Brien’s doughnuts and takes him home to play.
Quincy O’Brien is a gifted baker, but at night he dreams of soaring through the sky on dragonback and being topped by the perfect Dom. Mark satisfies the kinky urges Quincy has only explored in his subconscious, pushing his limits and caring for him afterward.
From the start, their connection was more than sexual. It’s known; it’s familiar somehow. And it’s slowly driving Mark insane. What shouldn’t be possible most certainly is, and the bond between himself and Quincy runs deeper than either of them could ever have realized.
The fourth in the Dragon Soul series, Born of Air is Mark’s story, the Betereroce brother I’ve been waiting for. Mark lost his soul mate long ago when he was murdered and since then, he’s seen little of his brothers or their new soul mates because of the memories and pain it brings up. Mark believes there is only one soul mate and he’s lost his forever. Until he meets a baker who dreams of flying and a silver dragon.
Born of Air departs from the other three stories because Mark has already found and lost his mate. In the three previous books, all three brothers needed to find their mates and had help courtesy of a tattoo and an elf. That didn’t happen here. The connection that Mark and Quincy make is a familiar one and one that Mark immediately rejects as impossible.
That impossibility will bring all the other brothers and their mates into this story to help the bonding and the relationship survive, a element I just love.
Another hallmark of this series? The incendiary sex scenes between Quincy and Mark. Hot, hot, hot. Here and in every story. These brothers have a love of kink and bdsm. Each story should come with its own fan or two.
I wish there had been more back history to Mark’s previous relationship and it’s ending but perhaps that’s coming in the books yet to be released. I hope so as I get the feeling Sean Michael is building up to some big event here when all the brothers have found their soulmates.
I don’t really feel these are standalone stories but one that builds upon the others so if you are new to the series start with Branded by Flames and work your way through all the books. They are quick reads, very entertaining and very, very, hot!
I definitely recommend them all.
Cover art is interesting and works for branding the story.
