Sometimes life gives you something magical - if Drill can rescue a dragon that is.


The Old Tavern Club is a front for a shifter rescue organization. The BDSM club works well in keeping the owner's true purpose secret, but when Pirou makes an unusual rescue, it might just be beyond the club's purview. So he calls in Drill, the owner's brother.


Drill has never even heard of a dragon shifter before, much less seen one, yet that's exactly what the beast in the club's basement looks like. As he works with the dragon, he finds all his instincts insisting that this is the sub he's been looking for.


Can Drill and the dragon rescue a happy ending for themselves?


Book Review

What a cool idea to have a shifter rescue hidden away in a BDSM club. While it’s sad that such a thing is needed in this world, it’s good to know that someone as nice as Pirou, who works for the owner, is around to watch out for those who need help. And in this first book of the ‘Shifter Rescue’ series he has come up with what must be one of the most unusual kind of shifter: a dragon.

Drill owns three golf clubs and makes good money. He is a wolf-bear hybrid shifter, so when he gets called in to help Pirou deal with his newest project, he is ready to deal with another shifter. The Old Tavern Club may be owned by his brother Drong, but Drill is clearly involved. What he finds is a dragon, and he is floored. Dragons are rare, and when Drill begins to get to know Az, he is thrilled to find out all kinds of new and interesting things. One of them is that Az is extremely sensual in both dragon and man form, so Drill sets out to teach him about physical pleasure.

Az is scared. He has been poked and prodded, and his training wasn’t successful, and he hates darts (tranquilizers). But Drill smells good, and he feeds Az meat and berries, so he decides to explore. What he finds is a “keeper”, something every dragon only dreams of having. Az encounters a lot of new experiences in this story, and I loved watching him explore his new reality with Drill.

If you like stories where shifter species mix, if two men experimenting with their physical attraction and different ways of looking at things sound interesting, and if you’re looking for a story that is as hot and sweet as it is fascinating, then you will probably like this short story.
