Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She's stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn't her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn't believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they're searching for away from them, she'll consider it payback.

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he's civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn't mean he gets to keep her...

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won't give up his treasure.

DRAKON'S PLUNDER is book three, but it seemed to follow the same timeline as the previous two books in the series.

Although Ezra and Sam have just as strong of a connection and the bedroom scenes are just as hot as the previous two couples, I will admit that I got bored more than once while reading.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the couples of this series, but I would love to see more outside interaction. Besides book one, the couples are always on their own in a little bubble having lots of sex with little outside interaction except for one, maybe two, action scenes. I would like to see some more relationship development to go with the insta-lust the couples all seem to have had. I would like to see some more action with the Knights of the Dragon. Besides one big conflict that is always instigated by the Knights, I would like to see some development in the Drakons beating them back. I really just need more at this point in the series to keep reading.

From the ending of DRAKON'S PLUNDER I have high hopes that book 4 will have two of the brothers together again in the same book for more than a chapter which I am hoping will heat the series back up for me. Fingers crossed.

I gave it 3/5 stars
