Stig Wyvern is ready for his transformation. A dragon shifter who goes through violent phases during his mating period, Stig plans to lock himself in a small cave beneath his isolated home. But his dark secret is threatened when a desperate young woman appears on his doorstep.
Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only person she can trust. That he’s strong, gorgeous, and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is an added bonus. Soon, Cora realizes Stig is hiding something from her—something that may explain the strange noises coming from the basement at night.
Now as the sexual tension—and danger—escalates, Stig needs to get Cora out of his house. But his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate—and she’s not going anywhere . . .

Stig is at the mating stage which happens every three years when Cora, his dead friends sister appears on his doorstep seeking help. She’s in trouble and Stig is the only person she has left. She’s had a crush on him for years and wants more. Stig is hiding something’s and she’s determined to find out what.
I love dragons, they’re one of my favourite paranormal creatures so I was excited when I seen this one on NetGalley, I just had to read it. With it being so short I didn’t expect much but I’m glad I read it as it was fun to read.
We only really touch base as there isn’t much that can be done in great detail so we don’t learn about their past but the air sizzles when they’re together and they haven’t done anything regarding their attraction to each other, until now.
Stig is torn when Cora appears as he doesn’t want her around during his mating phase but with her in trouble he wants to keep her close until things can be sorted. When Cara hears noises coming from the basement she asks Stig about it the morning after and he tells her the truth, he’s immortal, and also a Dragon. Yum yum… Cora is shocked but it also excites her, what happens to her is as much a surprise to Stig as it is to her and Cora reacts badly, running away instead of facing it together.
Dead Sexy Dragon was mostly filled with sex scenes, not that im complaining but I would have liked to know more about the feud between the Knights and dragons as it was vague, we only learned the cause and not much else.
A quick enjoyable read. Red Hot Dragon, Book 2 in the Dragon Heat Series comes out on October 1st, 2013…not long to wait, so until then.
