On a mission to an uninhabited planet, a space crew finds themselves in trouble. When the attraction between the captain and his chief medical officer explodes, sparks fly and the heat gets turned up.

Dawson Lang is the captain of the Drigon and heís not very happy. Being forced by his commander to bring a woman along on this mission didnít thrill him. When that woman is Meredith Carson, he is even less enthusiastic. Dawson only had three more months left before he retired. He didnít want any trouble and heís afraid that Meredith will be more trouble than he can handle. He just canít stop thinking about her.

Meredith Carson wanted to prove herself. Sheís wanted to go places and even travel to distant worlds. Thatís why she became a medical doctor and joined the Trade Alliance. So far this trip has been uneventful except for the blazing attraction she feels for Captain Lang.

As their feelings for each other explode, all hell breaks loose around them. Their ship crashes into an icy planet. The crew has to survive until they are rescued, but something is picking them off-one by one-and they donít know how long they have left.

With the very hot love scenes, itís surprising that Dawson and Meredith didnít melt the icy planet they landed on. It was nice to see a couple whose only real obstacle to love comes from outside influences, not through some problem of their own. Dawson is a sexy captain with the willingness to face his responsibilities and stay cool under pressure. Meredith might not think sheís brave, but she does what she has to do to keep them alive. Together, they make a wonderful modern couple willing to lean on each other when they have to. The story is fast-paced and exciting. The killer is creepy enough to keep me from wanting contact with extra-terrestrials.

The Drigonís Fall is a page turning story that will keep you on the edge of the your seat while you reach for the cold water to cool down.
