Madison and Ramsay begin a journey that will take them to the other side of the world and possibly open their hearts to each other.

Day of the Dragon is quite the grand adventure. It was like Indiana Jones only better. Rebecca York has created a beautiful world in Day of the Dragon. It is so easy to imagine your surroundings. From the clutches of a gorgeous man, to exploring underground dwellings long forgotten Day of the Dragon catapults you into the action.
Madison and Ramsay have this wonderful chemistry. I could absolutely feel the fervent need between these two. What’s great about them is even though they are thrown into this situation and the attraction is acted on pretty quickly they are not claiming their undying love by page fifty. Ms. York makes this couple work for their relationship. Nothing comes easy in Day of the Dragon. I found myself aggravated with Ramsay many times in the beginning. I wanted him to trust Madison, but by the end of the novel this is one of the things that make me like it more. Trust is earned in Day of the Dragon. It makes everything much more satisfying.
Emotion is always important to me when reading a novel and Day of the Dragon has them all. Ramsay’s pain at not being able to shift is palpable. His desire to know who, and what, he truly is can be felt and is powerful. He really goes on this incredible journey of self. Ramsay’s greatest desires could end up getting the one person who may complete him killed. As I was reading Day of the Dragon, I hoped he would discover what was most important before it was too late.
Tombs are unearthed, hearts uncovered, and betrayals exposed in Day of the Dragon, unleashing a one of a kind, action packed thrill ride that culminates in an outstanding, heart-stopping finish.
