He’s the peace-keeping Onyx brother, but there’s unrest in his own heart.
Billionaire dragon shifter, Jasper, can have everything he wants.
Everything, except for her.
Rose is his employee.
The woman who makes him breathe fire.
Her life is a mess, so she has Jasper tidied away into the just-friends box.
It’s where he needs to stay for the sake of the Dragon Empire.
Except that he doesn’t want to.
Now, Jasper’s got a decision to make.
Loving Rose will cost him everything,
But it will also be his ultimate salvation.
Also in this series:
Jasper leaned against the doorway, his slim form filling the door with masculine heat. “I would like to meet with you. Coffee, drinks, dinner and a movie, a walk in the park, skydiving, board games with friends, and a comedy show… How about tonight?”
“Tonight?” Rose asked. “You want to do all those things tonight?”
“You asked another human for date ideas again, didn’t you?”
He smiled helplessly, and her heart swelled so tight she almost couldn’t breathe. “How did you know?”
“Because only a dragon would try to cram ten dates into one night.” She shook her head. “You know how I feel about mixing work in my personal life.”
His face fell. “You separate the two for work-life balance.”
She wanted to give him a hug. Obviously she couldn’t do that. Rose snapped her fingers instead. “There you go.”
“I could fire you,” he offered.
“I could hate you,” she returned.
“But I don’t want you to hate me.”
“Mmhm, so you better not fire me.”
“Why can’t we date? I’m serious, Rose. When my brother Mal was serious about Cheryl, he abducted her.”
Rose could only imagine what that must have been like. “If you try to abduct me, I will Mace you into next week.”
“Cheryl never Maced Mal.”
“Missed opportunity,” she sympathized.
He frowned. “How can we compromise to overcome this impasse?”
“We can’t. Don’t feel bad, Mr. Onyx.”
“Dragons are from Mars, humans are from Venus.”
“No, dragons are from Draconis, and humans are a genetically recessive sub-species localized on a backward, fringe planet you call Earth.”
And five years ago, Rose and the rest of her genetically recessive sub-species on Earth had wrongly thought they were alone in the universe.
Ha ha, cosmic joke!
When the spaceships had landed, disgorging colorful dragons in plain beige jumpsuits, she’d watched the news program in her high school classroom just like the rest of the students—and then she’d raced outside to stare up at the visible ships wheeling overhead.
But the dragons hadn’t meant to invade. They’d just wanted to buy clothes.
That wasn’t the only weird thing about them, and Rose didn’t mind the low-key invasion. She preferred a paycheck over being enslaved, body-snatched, probed, or whatever real aliens did to helpless populations. She knew she had it good, and she didn’t ask too many questions.
“Right, so, we’re from two different worlds,” she pointed out.
“And I have already crossed a galaxy to arrive at yours.” Jasper’s gemstone-flecked eyes glowed with promise. “I’ll go as far as I need to reach you, Rose. Just tell me how.”
