The heart remembers.
When Aidan Bishop staggers out of the woods, naked and suffering from amnesia, he needs to relearn who he is and where he fits in the world.
His boss, nearly five-hundred-year-old dragon Nassim, head of a successful tech company, hurries to claim his wayward assistant and guide him back into the life he disappeared from. As they get to know each other again, Aidan wonders if their relationship went deeper than employer and employee. But Nassim isn’t telling, and Aidan has a secret of his own… even if he doesn’t know it yet.
“You have PTSD.”
“Why, because it’s been three hundred years?”
“Yes, that, and I’m—”
“Don’t say dragon.”
Nassim huffed and snapped his teeth shut. Aidan tried not to flinch at the noise.
“Seriously, though. It makes perfect sense. That kind of shit changes you.” Aidan couldn’t remember a specific example of how posttraumatic stress disorder affected someone, but he felt the rightness of that truth, as nebulous and intangible as it might be at the moment. “I bet there are mythos therapists who can—”
“Do not pull the ‘I’m dragon, I’m too cool to be helped’ thing.”
“It’s not that important. I don’t need to seek out professional help.”
“Huh.” Aidan rubbed a finger over his chin. “What do you think Jasper would say if I asked him about this?”
Okay, that rumble was more a growl than a happy noise. Nassim whipped his head up. “I told you this in confidence.”
“No, you didn’t.”
“There was no mention of confidentiality in our conversation.”
“Hmm. You might be right, Nassim. I don’t think I’m very objective at all.”
“But foolhardy,” Nassim breathed, his words more felt than heard. “Very, very foolhardy.”
“No.” Aidan stood and leaned forward to look Nassim in one of his big, fiery eyes. “Just unwilling to let you suffer in silence anymore.”
Nassim blinked, and the fire embedded in his eyes dimmed. After a moment his head sank back to the ground. “I will consider it.”
Jenn Burke has loved out-of-this-world romance since she first read about heroes and heroines kicking butt and falling in love as a preteen. Now that she’s an author, she couldn’t be happier to bring adventure, romance, and sexy times to her readers.
Jenn is the author of a number of paranormal and science fiction romance titles, including the critically acclaimed Chaos Station science fiction romance series (authored with Kelly Jensen) from Carina Press.
She’s been called a pocket-sized and puntastic Canadian on social media, and she’ll happily own that label. Jenn lives just outside of Ottawa, Ontario, with her husband and two kids, plus two dogs named after video game characters…because her geekiness knows no bounds.
