Treachery is afoot among the wizards of Tangia. The wizard king bids his northern champion, Aquilon Tenista, to seek and destroy those responsible for the theft of the wizards’ mindseers.

As the attraction between the two men grows, they discover a sinister presence within the magic cloth. Threads of the enemy’s deception must be severed if they are to have any hope of preventing war and saving their people.

Essere amati da un drago significa essere trattati come un tesoro inestimabile.

Cento anni fa, l’Alfa Montgomery, spinto dalla disperazione, ha scelto di correre un rischio: ha preso in prestito dei soldi dall’antico drago Warwick Ehecatl, lasciando come garanzia le terre del branco. Ora è arrivato il momento di pagare il debito, e i draghi non dimenticano… né perdonano. Warwick esige come risarcimento il figlio di Montgomery, Avery, e tre delle sue attività commerciali. Avery è un Omega e sa di essere praticamente inutile al branco, quindi potrebbe anche accettare, ma ha dei ripensamenti: il suo futuro compagno è terrificante, e sarebbe libero di fare di lui ciò che vuole.

Warwick è consapevole della reputazione della sua razza, ed è persino disposto ad ammettere che in parte sia meritata, ma preferirebbe tagliarsi la coda piuttosto che smorzare la luce negli occhi innocenti del compagno. Non sarà semplice, ma c’è qualcosa tra loro che ribolle sotto la superficie e che vale la pena di proteggere.

Benvenuti al Dim Sum Asylum, il Manicomio dei Dim Sum, in una San Francisco dove un caso è noioso e banale quando la polizia deve inseguire una statuetta alta mezzo metro con degli impressionanti baffi alla Fu Manchu, che è scomparsa da un santuario e se ne corre in giro per Chinatown lasciandosi dietro una scia di magia sessuale e caos.

Roku MacCormick, ispettore della divisione Crimini Arcani di Chinatown, deve affrontare una quantità di sfide che vanno ben al di là del suo retaggio umano-faerie, dei draghi ringhianti che stanno a guardia dei portali di C-Town e dell’esplosione di una fabbrica di noodle. Infatti, oltre alle interferenze di una famiglia mafiosa che vuole tenere a distanza e a un serial killer esperto di incantesimi che deve assolutamente trovare, dopo un caso andato a rotoli, a Roku tocca accollarsi Trent Leonard, un nuovo partner di cui non si può ancora fidare.

Anche se preferirebbe restarsene a casa con Bob the Cat a riempirsi di whiskey fino ad addormentarsi, ogni giorno Roku indossa distintivo e pistola, deciso a servire e proteggere la città che ama. Quando l’oscuro e sotterraneo mondo magico di Chinatown rende la sua vita un inferno e il caso su cui lavora si rivela letale, è Trent che bada a coprirgli le spalle e, a detta del suo nuovo partner, anche a guarire il suo cuore. Per Roku, però, Trent è pericoloso quanto i mostri e i criminali che hanno giurato di abbattere.

It’s not easy being someone’s fairy tale.

Leigh Hurley is making a name for himself among thieves and criminals, even if it isn’t the life he would’ve chosen. He shouldn’t have screwed over the Moretti brothers, though. It landed him in the river with weights on his feet. But somehow he’s escaped certain death. The last thing he remembers before waking on the riverbank is a beautiful face and a soft kiss.

Then, Tolomeo turns up naked at Leigh’s apartment.

Tolly comes from a race of killers—merfolk who drown humans for fun. But Tolly is different, and when he sees a human in trouble, he offers a kiss, granting the man the ability to breathe underwater… and himself the ability to walk on land, at least until the next full moon. The ancient laws state that if he is given a vow of love by the one he kissed, he will be able to keep his legs. If not, he will be put to death when he returns to the water.

But love is not something Leigh offers easily… and Tolly has a secret of his own.
