REVIEW: Drakon's Past by NJ Walters

Congrats to N.J. Walters on her newest book! I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of this PNR.

What it's about:
Constance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.

Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers. The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.

My thoughts:
Drakon’s Past is a stand-alone novel, although it is the fourth in  N.J. Walter’s Blood of the Drakon series. I was able to follow the story no problem, not having read any of the previous in the series but did feel there were details missing.
In this novel we have two sisters, Constance and Abigail, who find and sell antiques (junk). Our heroine, Constance, has found some dragon statues (which of course aren't actually only statues but also possess a magical ability). Two buyers are interested in the statues. One is our hero, Nic, who wants them to keep dragons safe. But the other buyer is a bad character who kidnaps Constance's sister to ensure he gets the statues. Nic promises to help Constance get her sister back.
These two main characters have awesome chemistry. What entailed was  fun story. Nic being a dragon is fated to have one destined mate, who he discover is Candace. There's a lot of danger pushing the characters together but the biggest hurdle for Nic is his reluctance to trust a woman. 
Greatly enjoyed the author's no nonsense writing style. This is a fun must-read PNR! You should pick it up.
