After a hundred-year hibernation to mend her broken heart, widowed storm dragoness ?ostre awakens to a world ruled by technology. Human beings are none the wiser to the existence of the paranormal, but in the modern era of mobile phones and the internet, keeping it secret is easier said than done. Despite rekindling old friendships and bonding with the new additions to her son’s family, nothing fills the hole left by her beloved. Her second chance arrives when she feels an inexplicable attraction to Maximilian, her deceased mate's best friend, a fire dragon with a temperament to match her own. Maximilian plans to become the next leader of the United States, but his future with ?ostre is jeopardized when a ghost from his past becomes his new adversary. As the heat between them rises, so does the threat to Maximilian’s life. Everyone isn’t ready for mortals and supernaturals to coexist — someone would sooner see him dead.
