Constantly butting heads with her boss, Julia Jones discovers there is more to him than meets the eye.
Dragon shifter, Angus McNamara craves Julia with everything he has and seeks to consume the ebony beauty in more ways than one. His biggest challenge is bringing her to terms with what she is while claiming her as his Fire Mate, the way a true Connricualen Dragon should. However, Julia Jones has other plans. Or so she thinks…
Can they put their differences aside long enough to seize a chance at love, or will they forfeit their opportunity and continue their heated dance of dominance?

Both dominant by nature Angus finds it frustrating that Julia refuses to submit to him which is the way of the dragon. He takes a firmer hand with her which Julia soon relishes and changes her life forever.
Being a fan of supernatural and shape shifting stories “Claiming Julia” by Charisma Knight is an enjoyable change from other shape shifter stories. Charisma Knight has done a great job with this story, although it is a little on the short side. It is an enjoyable read and we can only but keep our fingers crossed for more.
