Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from the Book Trailer Showcase and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

As dragon shifters, Remy and Philippe had spent their lives searching for their perfect mate, and in Lilly Montague, they found her. But enemies from their past are threatening their happiness. Dragon law dictates that they must meet the issued challenge and face their enemies in battle. But when Lilly sees them in Dragon form, will she be able to accept them?

The softness of the bedding was the sweetest torture against her skin. Even her sense of smell was heightened. She could smell him on her skin. “I’d rather have you to keep me warm,” she said. “Right now, I’m
not just warm, I’m hot. Burning up.”
“That’s the potion talking,” Philippe said, stripping out of his
clothes and joining her on the bed.
“What the hell was that anyway?” Lilly asked.
Remy answered, “It’s an old charm, an aphrodisiac made from
roots and herbs, with a bit of magic tossed in. The nightshade was added to it to also give it a sedative effect, which I imagine is why you are having such a difficult time moving. If it was a small dose, it should wear off soon. I think it’s beginning to already.”
“How long does the other effect last?”
“It’s hard to say... perhaps a few hours. Perhaps until tomorrow. It can be very uncomfortable,” Philippe responded, his fingertips trailing over her exposed skin. The lightest of touches, it still had her reeling. “It heightens every sense.... taste, touch, smell. Everything you experience, whether it is pain or pleasure, will be more intense.”
Remy glanced at Philippe and smiled. “We’re going to be in for a very long night.”
Lilly shivered as she felt Philippe’s lips against her neck. He kissed the mark there. Though it was always sensitive, she was unprepared for how the potion would magnify that. Her blood raced through her veins. Everywhere he touched her seemed to arc directly to her core until, with no more than a kiss, her body was weeping for him.
“Kiss me,” she urged.
Philippe moved above her and claimed her lips in a slow, languid kiss. It defied the rage that burned inside him at what had almost happened. But having Lilly taken from them, even if only for a short time, had given him the need to show her how much he treasured her. With his lips, teeth, and tongue, he played at her mouth, delving inside and then retreating, only to nip her lower lip. Her answering moan was all the encouragement he needed to keep going. Behind him, he could hear Remy disrobing. They truly would be in for a long night. The drug could take hours to work its way out of Lilly’s system, and until then, she would crave their touch as she never had before.
Leaving the lushness of her delicious mouth, he trailed hot, wet kisses along the column of her throat until he reached the upper swells of
her breasts. Her nipples were pebbled and begging for his touch. Mindful of how sensitive she would be, he traced the hardened buds lightly with his tongue, gentle but insistent. She moaned loudly, her back arching slightly. He cupped her other breast, teasing the nipple delicately, rolling it between his fingers until she screamed his name. When he felt the bed sink beneath Remy’s weight, he trailed his other hand over her belly, down to the soft, damp slit. As he traced the hardened bud of her clit, he felt Remy part her thighs wider, parting the pink lips of her sex. To keep her from screaming, Philippe kissed her again as Remy plunged his tongue into her.

My Thoughts:
This is a book that is a contemporary tale with a paranormal twist.  The Summoning is a continuation of the relationship of two men and a woman; Remy, Philippe, and Lilly.  You don’t need to read book one but for me, the story makes more sense if you read these books in order.  Some of the sex is MMF and some of the language may be graphic.  Someone who tends to like their sex vanilla may not enjoy this story.  But if you're willing to take a chance, Seraphina may change your mind.  And make sure to pay attention to Lilly's bath scene - made me sorry that I take only showers.
If you are willing to expand your reading horizons, you can’t go wrong adding this book to your library.   Seraphina has left me wanting to read more about Cajun men who are more than human.  Being that this is part of a series, and if you enjoyed Dragon’s Lair, you will want to watch out for the next book.  I highly recommend that you pick up this book especially when you need a quick read.
