A dragon princess once lost… Juniper hunts down the most dangerous criminals on her black ops missions—and she’s good at it. A dragon shifter who was raised by wolves, she doesn’t know her birth clan and gave up trying to find them a hundred years ago. Since The Fall, when rogue dragons razed half the planet, she’s spent her days hunting down supernaturals who think they can escape justice, delivering her own. During a dangerous mission, she falls into the claws of a sexy warrior dragon adjusting to the modern world—and from the start she knows she’s in trouble. Is now found… Dragon shifter warrior Zephyr doesn’t fit into this new world. He doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere—until he meets Juniper and her crew. He knows from the moment he sees the sexy and brave female dragon that they’re destined to be together. Unfortunately, life just got a whole lot more complicated. Not only are they in the fight of their lives against an overwhelming enemy force, but she’s royalty and her long-lost clan has come to bring her home. Even as they fight side by side to save hundreds of humans, he knows that winning her heart will be the hardest and most pivotal battle he’s ever waged. Juniper doesn’t want to get mated, doesn’t trust anyone with her heart—but this is one battle Zephyr will never stop fighting. Author note: Though part of a series, this book may be read as a stand-alone, complete with HEA.

Ancient Retribution is another hit in an already exciting series by author Katie Reus. This author has found the bread and butter of her series and delivers yet again!

LOVE that our leading lady Juniper was raised by wolves, cause they are funny and all about family. You will either love or hate that aspect; this time, for me, it works. I would have enjoyed more wolf antics and snarky humor, but maybe down the road with other characters. Juniper is a badass leading lady that you can get behind and cheer for. She's not meek and still very far from being a total overbearing basket case; I loved her tremendously.

In steps her hunk-o-loving dragon-man Zephyr and good golly do these two light up the pages! Hot and heavy, just like I want. Both are individually great and together can team up to rock the paranormal world. Katie has done another great job in executing a very colorful and adventurous tale, lots of heart in this one and, of course, the happily ever after that you want.

Giving this one 4.5 Sheep
