Hope walks into a bar in Bombay and meets Aaron by accident. It's not a "Hi, how are ya?" type of meeting. He's drunk and stumbles into her. Being a dragon shifter, she knows from the instant that they touch that he's more than just a drunk in a bar.
Aaron lost his twin brother, Zayne, and is mourning. He can't seem to get a grip on life without him. He spends most of his time at the bar, drinking himself numb. But he is a Guardian of the City. He's a powerful being, but not as powerful as the Elysians.
The Elysians are some bad dudes. They get their emotions from empaths. Well, they're losing their empaths and therefore are losing their ability to feel. Zach, their leader, approaches the Council of Bombay and wants some volunteers to provide empath services (is that even a thing?). But a member of his own council has gone rogue and has kidnapped a dragon shifter in an effort to make her an empath. But the empath has to give willingly and that isn't happening.
Aaron and Hope combine their efforts to rescue the dragon shifter. It was pretty cool how it was determined if Aaron was going to be able to handle the job. It was quite a test *No Spoilers*
Meanwhile, Aaron and Hope are falling in love but they can't mate. If she mates with someone not of the dragon species, her mate will die. The psychic connection from a dragon is too much for a mate who isn't a dragon. Aaron isn't of the dragon species. He's an Ascendant. Besides Hope is already betrothed to Jason, a childhood friend.
I really liked this book. It was a well-written fantasy with characters that were well-defined, interesting, and easy to care about. Vance made me laugh. The plot was tight and it had plenty of action to keep me reading (I had it read in just a few hours). I loved how the author built up sexual tension between Hope and Aaron, but didn't make it smutty. It was done with class and finesse.
I have to say that Aaron tugged on my heartstrings with the way he was dealing with the loss of his brother and then not being able to make a life with Hope. Man, he had it rough! He really deserves a happily ever after.
This is the first book in a series, but has no cliffhangers and can be read as a standalone novel. But after reading this, I want to read the next one.
Hope and Aaron have their paths collide when an unexpected attack on the shifter community takes place in Bombay. Hope is a dragon shifter, the sister of the Alpha of the dragons. Aaron is an Ascendant immortal who has recently lost his twin in an epic battle of good versus evil. Aaron is still not recovered from the loss and meeting Hope has his world turned upside down. Hope is not faring any better since as a dragon shifter she can only mate with another dragon shifter. To mate with any other species would ensure the person’s death.
In an initial encounter with an Elysian, the new villains, Hope demonstrates the magnitude of power dragons possess. No other species can withstand the psychic attack of an Elysian except for dragons. This creates an immediate alliance between dragons and the Council. This also ensues the Hope and Aaron magnetic attraction as they collaborate to bring an end to the Elysian threat. Hope tries to push Aaron away for fear of strengthening the budding chemistry between them that will only lead to Aaron’s demise. However Aaron is not willing to give up, not after he has lost his brother and now has found his mate in Hope. He will fight against anything, including Hope, to keep his mate by his side.
After reading the Many Lives stories, I am amazed that Laxmi can continue to contrive elaborate stories with heart-pounding scenes and delightfully complex characters. I literally cannot wait for the next installment!!!

Hope doesn't like to follow the rules of her kind, and that's how she ends up in a shifter bar in Bombay. After the devastation of losing his twin, Aaron just wants to forget. When a new kind of enemy decides to show its face, the pair can't help but form a fragile alliance.
I adored Hope, she was strong and feisty even if she spent some of her time fighting what her dragon wanted. In fact she even ended up scoring between the woman and the dragon. Aaron was so broken, it just made you want to take care of him. Over the course of the story so many things occur to show Hope and Aaron that they are destined for each other, but Hope is determined to fight it at ever step.
I enjoyed the whole story and am really excited for book 2 to come out!
