Blurb: Sky’s a canary prince that’s been kept in a gilded cage all his life. As a breeder for his dying people, it’s his job to find a suitable mate and continue the bloodline. All he wants to experience is a one-night-stand with a stranger he’s attracted to, before someone puts a permanent lock on his cage.
Rex’s a century-old Alpha dragon shifter trying to make it past each day. Losing his mate tore his soul in half. As a result, his dragon’s broken beyond repair. When Rex meets Sky, he realizes he’s been given a second chance at love. But things are never that simple.
Sky’s powerful avian family wants their breeder back and Sky’s terrified for Rex. Little does Sky know who the real threat is. When a dragon finds his mate, the hunt never ends until the Alpha claims his mate.

Review: For me Angelique Voisen is an author on my radar but not really an author that I immediately want to read. I’m not really sure if I’ve read any of her previous works but I know I’ve read the blurb for a number of stories (and clearly never got further than that). Maybe one day that will change. For now I’m reviewing this fairly enjoyable and very short story.
Sky is a sweet canary shifter who has been mistreated by predatory birds, in particular the cruel eagle shifter who Sky has been forced to mate. He spends time perched in his canary form singing a mournful song, feeling trapped, which connects with lonely centuries old dragon shape shifter, Rex. Rex lost his human mate twenty years ago and because of that struggles to maintain control of his dragon. But the moment Rex sees Sky (and saves him) in his human form it seems to be fate that they are together.
For the most part this was an enjoyable story. I wished there was more of Sky and Rex – if that were the case I would hope that the introduction to Sky especially would give the same details in the blurb. I find it a little disappointing that I got more info about Sky from the blurb than I felt I did from the book. But Sky and Re are made for each other – as I said, it would have been cool to have more of them.
