He can’t escape the sins of his past…

Toxic to all those who touch him, dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation, a prisoner of the poison in his veins. But when a chance meeting with a woman challenges the belief he is destined to be alone, he pulls out all the stops, vowing to put the savagery of his past behind him and take a chance on love. 

She doesn’t want to face her future…

Wanted by the Russian mob, creative accountant Evelyn Foxe isn’t looking for love. She searching for the fastest way to escape instead. When Venom offers to get her out of trouble, she accepts his help, but remains skeptical, afraid he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when someone unleashes a biological weapon in her hometown, and she gets caught in the firestorm, little choice remains—trust Venom to keep her safe or risk her life by going it alone.

I have been a Venom fan throughout this series.  I was so happy to see him get his own book!  He is a great friend, a kick ass warrior, a totally alpha male, a video game geek, and a shifter thinking he can never have what his friends have---a true mate to spend the rest of his life with.  As his name says, Venom is poisonous.  No one can touch him for very long without become sick or dead.  Apparently his true mate is immune to his poisons. Venom is anything if not calm and encouraging to Evelyn.  They work well together as a pair.  The sexual chemistry is off the charts!   Although there is some romance going on here, there is so much action and intrigue going on in this book, I found myself having to take a break every once in awhile just to calm myself down.  This author writes realistic male bonding/companionship moments.  It's obvious she grew up either with a bunch of brothers or hung around the guys from the all male hockey team she was on.  There are times I found myself laughing out loud!   Fans of the series will be happy to know that there are story lines from previous books that hang out in this story and only add to the suspense.   The story  completely sucked me in from page one.  I was hoping the book would not end because that meant I had to wait to find out what happens next to this group of warriors.  The Night Fury guys are up for any challenge. I'm looking forward to the next installment.  Check out books 1-4 first before you read this one so that you are up to speed on the Dragon Fury world.
