Gabriel Tauhou, the leader of the silver dragons, can't take his eyes of May Northcott - not even when May, who has the unique talent of being able to hide in the shadows, has slipped from everyone else's sights. May, however, has little time for Gabriel - not when she's hiding from the Otherworld law, hunting down a blackmailer, and trying to avoid a demon lord's demands. But her ability to withstand Gabriel's fire marks her as his mate, and he has no intention of letting her disappear into the darkness she seems to prefer. May is ordered to steal one of Gabriel's treasures - an immensely important relic of all dragonkin - and he must decide which to protect: his love or his dragons.
May Ling aint no Aisling Greg...
I found the main character, May, (her twins nickname for her is May-ling) a bit dull. Perhaps it could have explained more about her beginnings - but then I guess the lurid romance was the name of the game in this series. I won't be buying and more of the Silver Dragon Series. The narrator's voice also did not fit the character - I found her voice distracting.
The story itself was interesting enough but they chose a woman as the narrator that sounds like she's in her 90's. Which in most cases wouldn't be a problem, but its definitely creepy to hear someone who sounds like your grandmother reading to you about sex (when those scenes come along)....shudder
