Possessed by a need to save a beautiful Amazon warrior from the vision he witnessed, Loke snatched her from the midst of the battle between the Third and Fifth realm of the demons, and carried her to his home deep in the black mountains of Hell to protect her. But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she’s anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn she might be more to him than an enemy—she might be his fated female.
Anais remembers meeting a handsome warrior in the heat of battle, a man who was her enemy but who looked at her with eyes that held dark heat and wicked promises. When she wakes to find that same dragon shifter has taken her captive, desire is the last thing on her mind, but escaping him to return to Archangel, the hunter organisation she works for, sounds less than appealing when he reveals the reason he took her—to stop her from dying.
Can Loke protect Anais from the dangers of his realm and how far will he go to save her from the future he keeps witnessing? Can Anais resist the fierce attraction that burns between them as hot as fire and stay true to Archangel or will her heart be taken by the dragon?


As she had stated so vehemently, they were enemies. Enemies fought and died on battlefields all the time in this realm, hundreds of them marching to their deaths each day. He had stormed into the midst of the war between the Third and Fifth Realms knowing that fate might await him, just as she had.

Yet he hadn’t been able to see her die without reacting to it on a visceral level, one that had seized control of him and demanded he do whatever it took to stop her death from happening.

That same primal reaction flooded him whenever he recounted what he had seen, seeing flashes of her covered with blood overlaid onto her where she stood just metres from him, her pretty face set in grim dark lines that warned she was considering kicking him in a most delicate place again. His balls throbbed with the memory and he decided to keep his distance from her, at least until she had calmed down and felt more comfortable with her surroundings and situation.

Another thing he should have considered before snatching her.

Females didn’t like it when males seized hold of them and took them somewhere against their will. They had a tendency to think the vilest things of the male who had taken them, presuming they meant them harm. It was a reasonable assumption, he supposed, but one he wished she hadn’t pinned on him.

He had no intention of harming her.

He only wanted to protect her.

Once he was certain that whatever he had witnessed couldn’t come to pass, something that depended on him receiving word that the war was over between the Third and Fifth Realms of the demons, he would keep his vow and return her to her people.


He still refused to believe that she belonged to that race. She was too strong and brave to be a mortal.

My thoughts:

I think this may have been my favorite so far. Taken By A Dragon is the seventh book in the Eternal Mates series.

This one was an exciting dragon filled adventure. Our leading man was Loke, a dragon. ;-) I thought he was purrrrfect! He was everything that I have come to expect from shifter men.

Anais was our heroine. She was a stubborn and fierce warrior in her own right. She works for a Hunter organization called Archangel. 

These two had a great chemistry and their relationship was started as a spark and grew to blazing proportions. ;-)

I was blown away with the author's depiction of the dragon's abilities. I thought it was great that she mixed some that we assume and gave him some unique skills as well.

As usual with this series, there was plenty of action, scenes that will make you laugh, and plenty of romance too. This is a dragon story so be prepared for there to be some heat as well. ;-)

I have to mention the secondary characters too. I never tire of reading Felicity's books. She always amazes me. I have no imagination whatsoever and she just keeps knocking book after book out of the park.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was a treasure that I would recommend reading.

  1. oh an excellent dragon book^^ if it was not already on my list because on teh author your review will have put it in second^^

    1. I was super excited to read it. I like dragons and I like her writing so it was a win/win. :D

    2. ^^ i'm really glad it did not end up disappointed you.
      can it eb read as stand alone easily ?

    3. There was only one scene that I had trouble following. But it wasn't a major deal in the book. There were a lot of characters and names being thrown around that If I had read the other books I would have understood it better but it wasn't enough to make the book hard to follow so I think it can stand alone.

  2. I'm pretty sure you would have no problem with it.

  3. I posted my review for this one a few days ago. I LOVED it!! I really need to go back and read the rest of the series.

    1. You really should. :D This one was one of my faves in the series though. As you know when reading series there are always one or two that you like more or a few that you don't like as well. The previous one was my least favorite but they are all worth reading.

    2. I want to say I read the first or the second one because a couple of the characters were extremely familiar to me. But its been awhile so I'll go back and reread that one and the rest of the series.

  4. Thanks for the post on this book. I love this type of story.
