"Who knew vampires and dragons could be so hot together?"

Declan is a dragon shape shifter and he has had a massive crush on Elysia for a long time. He has admired her for a very long time and can't believe his luck when she shows up at the Undertakers' Ball with one thing on her mind. She is looking to relieve her pent up sexual frustration. He has wanted her for so long and now that he has had a taste of her, he may never let her go.

Since her public and humiliating break-up with her fiancÚ, Elysia has stayed out of the public's eye and only committed herself to one night stands. Her brothers insist that she represent her family at the Undertakers' Ball and she gives in, figuring that she can find a one night stand at the ball. When she chooses Declan, she knows she is in trouble because he stirs her mating instinct. She has no idea that her brothers are concocting a plan to get her mated to Declan.

This is the first book in the Tales of the Darkworld series. After reading this one, I look forward to the next books in the series. Lex Valentine has a powerful talent of drawing her readers in right from the beginning. Shifting Winds moves at a good pace, has likeable characters and a simple plot. This book is loaded with searing passion and just a little humor. Ms. Valentine made good use of every word, surprising me with the amount of character and plot development in such a short novel.
