All she wants is a one-night stand. But when he discovers that she’s his mate, he won’t stop until he claims her as his forever.
Cat shifter Violet Cross has a penchant for trouble. When she breaks up with her fiancé, Mac, and seeks some guilt-free, sweaty, hot sex at the local bar but ends up waking up the next morning married, Violet thinks she has hit an all-time low. Especially when she finds out the man she’s married is a dragon prince from the al’Tarakh throne; a VIP passenger she must escort to the D’Keghan system.
Levy Frye has been looking for his future queen for quite some time. When he sees the green-eyed feisty cat innocently proposing a one-night stand, he can’t simply let Violet slip away. He agrees on a quickie, but instead he finds his true soul mate. Levy vows to make Violet his forever. The tricky part is convincing the stubborn cat they belong together.
When lust and destiny collide, a weeklong game of cat-and-dragon hide-and-seek at Orient Fevre might prove to be the most feverish encounter of all.
Orient Fevre is a fun bit of fluff and stuff about a cat shifter and a dragon shifter and what happens after they meet at an off-world bar and agree to spend a bit of time together. Lizzie Lynn Lee has written interesting characters wrapped in an unusual plot involving space adventures, denial and numerous erotic sexual scenes.
The basic idea is that Violet, who is a cat-shifter and security officer on a ship, is jilted by her fiancé a month before their wedding. She decides to go have a little tryst herself and offers to pay a great looking guy for simple sex. He turns out to be much more than Violet bargained for and she ends up married to him; the marriage is intentional on his part but accidental on hers. There are wild adventures and sexual exploits as the two get to know one another.
I enjoyed the characters of Violet, Levy and Captain Hawk. There is an underlying humor in their interaction with one another that enhances the flow of the story.
If you are looking for a book to help start your engine on a cold winter’s night or perhaps something to read aloud with your partner to get the home fires burning, Orient Fevre is perfect for you. It is an enjoyable, easy reading, HEA story that had sparks flying from my old e-reader.
