About the book:
Kai Darrow is a dragon shifter and the next leader of the Dásreach Council – that is if he and the other twelve members of the Thirteen can find their mates. Years of frustration push Kai to take action and with a little luck and finesse maybe he can find the woman of his destiny.
Alvena Anderson prefers books over people, yet she still craves love and adventure. In a rut, a trip with her Book Worm friends is just what she needs – until unexplained accidents, a Psychic reading, and a tattooed hottie from the plane make her want to run home.
Unbeknownst to the Thirteen a darkness is working against them, preventing possible mates from coming into contact with them. Working in the shadows and using human pawns, the darkness has set its sights on Alvena and her friends.
Can she accept her real life hero before it’s too late?

The review --
This book, in part, paves the way for other books to come in this series. It's a different take on the paranormal romance, in that they meet their mates through tattoo parlors that they run. And then there are the tattoos that the guys have. Plus, there's this unknown element that is throwing a monkey wrench in the process of the women finding the men; and going to the extremes of even trying to kill the women. Not your run of the mill paranormal romance. Lots of action and drama.
Good book, with a unique take on the paranormal romance. Different shifters, bear, dragon, panther, etc. Enjoyable read. Sometimes book gets a bit bogged down by being in the character's head too much, and them thinking over this and that. Liked the Kai character a lot, but could have used a bit more confidence and assertiveness.
