Night's Awakening by Donna Grant Book 2 in the Dark King's Trilogy
Fueled by dragon magic, the dark immortal warriors were never meant to feel human desire, much less fall in love. But when Guy, a member of an ancient order of shape-shifting warriors, meets Elena Griffin—a mere mortal whose beauty and blind ambition shakes him to his core—all bets are off…
Having left America to explore the Scottish Highlands, Elena suddenly finds herself lost in a dark cave—alone, injured, and utterly hopeless…until Guy appears from out of nowhere. Is she dreaming her own rescue when she falls into his arms? A man—and a passion—this strong is too good to be true. It’s only a matter a time before she learns the truth about the flames in his heart. And the dragon in his soul…
Meet the Hero
Guy is wholly unprepared for his life to be shaken to its very core when he saves a woman who has trespassed onto their land and decided to go caving in their mountain. While everyone else is worried what she might have seen, Guy is more concerned with the way he can't stay away from Elena or her very tempting lips.
Never once has he turned his back on his fellow Dragon Kings, but for Elena he would do anything just to keep her near him. Even if it meant going against everything it was to be a King.

Tears stung her eyes, but she brushed them away. She had three choices. She could lower herself in the hole and look for Sloan. She could leave and try to get help—that was if she could find the way out. Or she could stay where she was.
Elena lay on her stomach and looked over the side of the gap again. There was no sign of Sloan’s light, and she had no idea how far the chasm went.
“Oh,” she said and reached for a small rock.
She held it up over the hole before dropping it, slowly counting to see how far down the shaft went. When she hit forty and still hadn’t heard the rock hit, she knew it was bad.
When she was on her feet again, she looked to where she thought they had traveled so she could retrace their steps only to find she was so disoriented, she wasn’t sure which way to go.
“Which means going for help is now out of the question.”
But Elena wasn’t quite ready to give up. She didn’t have the experience to rescue Sloan, and waiting was not an option, since no one knew they were there. So, she slung her pack over her shoulder and picked the direction she was sure they’d come from. Elena had no idea how long she walked or how far she traveled, but the cave was becoming more treacherous. This couldn’t be the same trek they had made earlier, surely.
She turned to look over her shoulder, and her foot slipped on the moist rock, sliding between two others. Elena cried out as she felt something snap in her ankle. With her jaw clenched and tears flooding her eyes from the pain, she slowly pulled her leg free. The agony was unbearable, made more so because she couldn’t put any weight on her leg.
Somehow she managed to hobble to the closest spot she could find to sit down. Her harsh breaths were the only thing she heard in the cave, and they resonated around her ominously, menacingly.
“I knew this damn place was a bad idea,” she said as she wiped away her tears. “I’m not going to die in this place. I’m going to get out. I am.”
