Dead Sexy Dragon is the first book in a new series by Lolita Lopez that surrounds the Brotherhood of the Green Hide. The Brotherhood is a band of dragons that protect their kind from the Knights of St. George, a group that hunts and kills dragons. It is a short book at only 97 pages, but it serves as a great introduction to the world of the Brotherhood, while also providing a steamy story.
Stig Wyvern, is a dragon shifter and member of the Brotherhood who has dedicated his life to fighting for his kind. When Cora, the sister of his dead best friend, shows up at his house needing his protection, Stig’s first instinct is to send her away. He’s just starting the mating phase and that makes him dangerous to everyone around him. Cora is on the run from something and although he knows its risky, Stig is unable to send her away.
Since it is a fairly short book the story moves at a fast pace but I didn’t feel like it suffered because of that. Stig’s dragon recognizes its mate and begins to reach out to her in their dreams. Unfortunately for him, mating with a human is a big no no for the Brotherhood so he tries to keep his secret under wraps. Cora becomes curious about the noises that come from the basement at night, where Stig has chained himself up to prevent injury to those around him, and when she pushes for answers he reveals his secret to her.
Something strange happens when Cora touches him while he’s in his dragon form but Stig doesn’t have anyone he can ask about it because he’s not supposed to mate with a human. When Cora begins to grow scales on her back she panics and takes off away from Stig. After she realizes the mistake she’s made by leaving, the people she was running from catch up with her.
While I’m not a huge fan of shorter books, I enjoyed this one and will continue to follow the series and see how it plays out. The story has plenty of steamy sex scenes for those of you who love a good hot read. Overall, I found this book to be a satisfying introduction to the series and if you are shifter fan I recommend you check it out.
