What’s better than a knight sweeping you off your feet? Two knights. Silla is a healer riding circuit on the border, helping those in need. When she hears the pained cries of a dragon in distress, she comes to his aid, using most of her precious supplies to help the badly injured creature. The dragon’s knight, Brodie, is fascinated by the woman—the miracle worker—who has come to help his friend. She is both beautiful and kind hearted and he quickly realizes she is his destined mate. And if she is Brodie’s mate, she is Geoff’s as well, for Brodie’s dragon was mated to Geoff’s dragon many years ago. Geoff doesn’t believe in the tales of love at first sight among knights, but he knows that when either he or Brodie finds a wife, they will share her. Hearing about the dragon’s injury, Geoff and his dragon race to help, only to find the dragon on the mend and Brodie in bed with the most stunning woman Geoff has ever seen. Love at first sight turns out to be real and it strikes them all as they come together and realize that no matter what the obstacles, they are meant to be together. Silla is the missing link that will join their lives and make them a true Lair family. Warning: Knights like to get frisky and these two are no exception. Beware the passion, playfulness, a bit of bondage and a whole lot of three-way loving with a tiny bit of exhibitionism thrown in for good measure.
Silla is a trained healer who is completing her time as an intern where all healers are sent out to constantly follow a specific circuit and to help and heal the people she meets. Silla loves this part of her training and knows that after several years of this, she is just a few years away from being called back for the next stage of her career. All healers start out with very little to help them, but Silla’s personality and skills have provided her with items that have helped her provide help when called upon. Just as Silla reaches a town she has been looking forward to visiting, she hears the pain-filled cries of a dragon and Silla knows that she has to help if she can.
Brodie is the dragon’s knight and he immediately accepts the help of the small and quick healer who requests to help his dragon and friend. As the afternoon wears on, Brodie learns more and more about the talented healer and also realizes that she is his destined mate. Brodie knows that he must act slowly and not scare Silla, but the fire in his blood after so many years of searching makes that all but impossible. There is also one other thing that Brodie has to figure in before he tells Silla – that another knight named Geoff will also be Silla’s mate if she agrees and she hasn’t even met him yet.
That night, tired but happy that she has helped the dragon – Silla accepts the use of the spare bed in the knight’s cabin to relax and get some much needed rest. But fate and passion have other things in mind for Silla and Brodie, a night that shows Brodie and Silla that their fate is going to be a hot and erotic one. When Silla wakes up to not only Brodie but also Geoff, she quickly realizes that the aspect of being loved by not only one but two hot dragon knights does not shock her at all – she is all for it. Love at first sight might be a saying but for these two knights and their healer, it’s an absolute fact that previews a loving future for them and their dragons.
Two dragon knights find their fated mate when she comes to the aid of a hurt dragon and proves that this healer has just the right touch. Silla, Brodie and Geoff find their future together in The Dragon Healer. Brodie’s pain over the pain of his hurt dragon showed me that he was a man of very deep feelings and once he gave you those feelings it was for good. Silla’s goodness worked in perfect combination to Brodie’s huge heart and Geoff’s spiciness was just what they needed to keep them all on their toes. I really loved how Brodie tried to be so careful when approaching Silla with what he felt and also how Silla was concerned about that oath she had taken even while being thrown for a loop by an unexpected and powerful love. Geoff’s mischievousness I found to be exactly what this trio needed to keep things interesting and keep them on their toes. Of course, the dragon mates were the icing on the cake. The Dragon Healer is one erotic and fast moving story that shows just how fate can change lives for the better with no warning at all.
