Dawn's Desire by Donna Grant ~ Excerpt & Giveaway!

Dawn’s Desire

For centuries, the immortals knows as the Dragon Kings have hidden their shapeshifting powers from the world. But when a mortal enemy threatens to expose them, the warrior Banan must leave his secret lair in the Highlands, risk his life for the dragons within – and resist the temptations of human love…
Jane Holden has never considered herself beautiful. But when the impossibly handsome Banan casts his gaze upon her, smoldering with sensuality, she feels like the sexiest woman on earth. Banan, however, is a man on a mission. He refuses to succumb to this modern woman’s charms – or his own desires. Two of his warrior brethren have already surrendered to forbidden love. But as the danger closes in, Banan realizes that he needs to possess Jane – mind, body, and soul. For she is more than his match.

She is his destiny…

“Oh!” she gasped as he pulled her against him.

He stared down into the large pools of her coffee brown eyes. Her hands gripped his shoulders tightly. He’d brought her against him to help balance their weight so they both wouldn’t topple over, but with the feel of her breasts and amazing curves against him, he knew it hadn’t been a wise decision.

The lust he’d keep abated raged like an inferno, demanding he close the distance and sample her lips for his own. Slowly, leisurely he’d kiss her until she clung to him with longing.

Despite knowing he needed to separate from her, he couldn’t. His blood burned from the desire that licked at his body. He liked the feel of her in his arms, loved the way her lips parted as if she waited for his mouth on hers.

The urge, the pure, primal need to take her was unwavering. Overwhelming. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt such...yearning for a woman.

“Are you all right?”

“Y...yes,” she murmured softly.
Her lips were so close to his. They were tempting, enticing.
He wanted to cover her mouth with his, to kiss her deeply and intensely. The impulse was so great he barely stopped himself in time.

And then wished he hadn’t.

Banan has never had a problem using humans to help further hide the Dragon Kings. Not once has he ever thought twice about lying regarding who he was to get what he wants. After all, he'd been one of the Kings who had fought to save mankind.
But all that changes the moment he sees Jane Holden. It's his duty to get close to her and discover any secrets she might have regarding the Kings, but when her life is threatened, Banan doesn't hesitate to save her. Or show her who he really is.
