I am doing a bit of binge reading as of late, devouring Juliette Cross's books featuring the Morgon. I currently am reading Waking the Dragon, a fantasy romantic suspense novel.
The Gladium Province is on the verge of civil unrest as humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, clash once more. But amid disorder can also arise passion.
When the bodies of three human women are discovered in Morgon territory—with the DNA of several Morgon men on the victims—it’s just a matter of time before civil unrest hits the Province. But for ambitious reporter Moira Cade, it’s more than just a story, and it may mean risking her own life.
Descending into the dark underworld of Morgon society, Moira is paired with Kol Moonring, Captain of the Morgon Guard, for her protection. Fiercely independent, Moira bristles at his dominance, and defies his will at every turn. Yet resistance proves futile when passion flares between them, awakening powerful emotions within both, body and soul. But as the killings continue, can their fiery newfound bond survive an even greater evil—one that threatens all of humanity, Morgonkind, and Moira’s very soul?

Fire lanced up my body, filling my cheeks. "Look, Kol." I refused to even give him the respect of authority. "You don't know me. you don't know what I write or why I write, so stay out of my world and out of my damn business."and from 22%:
Lorian clasped both hands together on the table, leaning forward. "You do realize that in order to lead us to the others, we'd have to let him abduct you."
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
I am enjoying this series so far. It's quite intense and, in this latest novel, the stakes are even higher.
