Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense, Shifters
Length: 325 Pages
POV: Alternating First Person
Death comes for everyone. Even Drake Chandali. The aging process that twists all unmated dragon shifters’ bodies into something useless has taken hold of his body centuries early. A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late. To protect his team of enforcers, he leaves, and comes face to face with the woman he’d thought was human when he saved her from a fire months before.
Except she’s not human. She’s a mate.
Camilla Carrillo almost lost her family to wildfire. To discover she’s fated to mate a creature made of flame and rage, and become one herself, should be terrifying. But somehow a rightness settles inside her, especially when she’s around the glowering red dragon shifter who wants nothing to do with her.
When Drake learns Cami bears his mark — the same mark as the High King — he refuses to believe she’s meant to be his. It’s too late. How could he turn Cami only to take her with him to the grave? At the same time, he can’t walk away. Hiding her from the corrupt, rotting High King might be the last honorable thing Drake ever does with the little time he has left.

I’m pretty sure that The Enforcer is my favorite Fire’s Edge book.
Drake saves several humans trying to flee a farm with no way out, but instead of them freaking out (like most people who’d see a real life dragon would) one girl attempts to defend her family from this monstrous creature. He’s so enthralled by her that once they’re safe he shifts into his human form and that’s when they both feel it…that special draw to one another, but she shows no signs of being a dragon mate so he writes it off, wipers her and her family’s memories, and doesn’t look back.
Cami on the other hand starts sparking fires. Luckily Rune showed up and offered her a safe haven since the last thing she needed was to finish burning down the rest of the family farm; it’s not as if there was much left anyhow.
“I’ll make you a deal. I’ll be silent if you can smile and say thank you.”
Drake, which we learned in the previous book, has health issues. He’s gone too long without a mate and he’s deteriorating quickly. So quickly that he decides to leave his team and crawl off to Rune’s to die. But who is there to greet him…Cami.
Cami doesn’t have a memory of him, but she knows she’s drawn to him. Drake won’t risk his failing health killing a potential mate. And there in lies the best part of the story. He’s crabby. She’s determined. Their chemistry pulled me in and I could not put the book down.
“Don’t you see? I’d rather die with you than live without you.”
Abigail’s writing is amazing as ever and the storyline completely captivating. I cannot wait to see what comes next in the Fire’s Edge series. One day maybe even all the couples will reunite. One can hope at least.
