Chrome Circle - Serrated Edge, Bk 2 Author:Mercedes Lackey, Larry Dixon Thinking he has found his mate for life, rock-music playing and fast-driving mage Tannim finds his dreams complicated by her dragon father, her part-human-part-fox personality, and her apparent desire to kill him.
This has lots of creatures - good and evil. A human mage runs into his destined mate - only she has been raised and trained to kill him. It all works out. Good story - action, some love but not all in your face with pages and pages, just a promise of a future and some kisses. Also like the characters.
