Before I get into the actual review can I just say…
The Dragon's Thief - Riza Curtis

look at that freakin’ cover…I love it…such a beautiful dragon and I love…LOVE!!! Dragons!

 

Now on to the actual story…Chester is a renowned thief and Magpie shifter and actually he’s pretty adorable I really liked Chester and he really does know that you don’t mess with a dragon’s hoard…nope, nope, nope that’s just cray, cray. The problem is that when the dragon’s as attractive as Michal…it’s hard to let your common sense rule the day.

Michal is a dragon-shifter and a first-born son and someone has messed with his hoard and not just any someone…nope, nope, nope this is a someone that’s known to Michal and thanks to family politics Michal can’t do a thing about it except hire a sexy little magpie to get what’s his back.

 

First things first there was really only one thing that bothered me about this story…it was TOO SHORT!!!!!!!!! Not that the story wasn’t complete or that I felt cheated no it was more like I was loving it and Chester and Michal and all the things about this one.

 

At all of 65 pages packing a complete story that was filled out with depth to the characters and a story that felt complete the author had a big undertaking because this is something that can either work or go horribly wrong if it’s not done right and as my first time reading this author I was pleasantly delighted with the story I got to read.

 

I loved seeing Michal so confident and sure of his place in the world until he’s faced with the realization that he wants Chester more than he wants the return of what was taken from his hoard and he’s faced with insecurities and Chester as he realizes that Michal’s so much more than a job and I loved Chester and Michal together. These boys were hot, not that there was a lot of sex in this one but what was there was well done and strategically utilized to emphasis the attraction between Michal and Chester.

 

There were also some secondary characters that we got to meet in this story and while the author gave us enough information to add depth and dimension to things, I would have loved more about Chester’s friends and Michal’s father and brother.

 

While this story worked for me as it was if it had been a bit longer than the 65 pages on my Kobo, I’m pretty sure there would have been 5 flowers (stars) on this review. Riza Curtis is a new to me author and for a first read I found this story to be absolutely delightful and if the author decides to grace us with more…more Chester and Michal…oh be still my heart! I’m there so totally there.

Review! Half-Blood Dragon (Dragon Born Saga #1) K.N. Lee!
Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy - K.N. Lee,Cait Reynolds

 

 

New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee presents Half-Blood Dragon, the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy.

 

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

 

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

 

A lady-in-waiting's job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather's plan to elevate the family's station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen's days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits.

 

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince's murder.

 

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

 

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

 

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

 

 

Embarking on this breathless and fascinating journey is one that will readers will certainly enjoy as it brings pirates, dragons, sorcerers and even mermaids to brilliant and vivid life.

 

Rowen is planning to elevate her family’s status by marrying the crown prince, but prophecies haunt her dreams, intrigue and seduction fill her days and death awaits. Change is coming with a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world and Rowen will have to accept her fate, awaken her gift and set the world on fire.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily enchant readers into their world full of thrilling suspense, excitement and daring plots that keep readers on the edge of their seat during this steady to fast paced plot. Most of the story is all about the intrigue which keeps ensures readers never have a dull moment as they try to determine what will happen next especially since it is filled with startling twists that cause astounding changes to Rowen’s life. There is also quite a bit of emotional issues that ensures that readers feel as if they understand the characters and which certainly adds depth to the story as Rowen faces prejudice, danger, and destiny. There’s not a whole lot of romance in this part of the story, although there is the seduction of the Crown Prince which is essential to Rowen’s stepfather’s plans.

 

The characters and the world are well developed and the author described the world and her characters vividly so it made is easy for me to imagine each and every scene as I became caught up in the story. The author did end the story at a decent point, but the story does have a cliffhanger as it is part of a saga, so I am looking forward to discovering what happens next in Rowen’s world.

REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - The Dragon's Thief by Riza Curtis
The Dragon's Thief - Riza Curtis
Chester. Magpie shifter, renowned thief.


Chester knows better than to get involved when a dragon requests his services. Anyone who steals from a dragon's hoard is not to be screwed with. There's something alluring about Michal though, and Chester's always loved playing with fire...

Michal. Dragon shifter, first-born son.

Michal knows exactly who's taken the centrepiece of his hoard—his estranged brother. The one person he can't touch thanks to family politics. It seems simple enough to hire the little magpie shifter to retrieve what is his. But, Chester is nothing like Michal expected, and in the end he might need to decide whether the last piece of his mother is worth more than the man who could own his heart.

New Release Review! Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon (Dragon Guards #21) Julia Mills!
Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon - Julia Mills

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills, and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY!

 

On her ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ soul-searching journey across the country with nothing but her radio blastin', the top rolled down, and her trusty red Jeep named Daisy Mae, Dax may have bitten off more than she can chew this time.

 

Bright red hair and a smile that darn near knocks him on his butt, the woman stuck on the side of the road is a wild filly J.D. would love to tame, but then again, she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is.

 

The desert’s hot but this couple's hotter , not to mention the raised-from-the-dead Medicine Man who’s hell bent on bathing his special little precious in their blood. Talk about prickly as a cactus!

 

The Great Creator and the Universe don’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but the flames of Destiny are hotter than ever before.

 

Grab your hat and boots and head for the desert, ‘cause this lady’s claiming her Dragon and nothin’ will ever be the same.

 

 


Well, I have to tell you that I got a bit more than I expected from this intriguing and completely enthralling story.

 

It is fast paced and full of thrilling events and exciting twists and turns as well as a mating that is quite literally flaming hot. Dax and J.D. is delightful characters full of snark and flames, they set the pages on fire when their chemistry comes together and they had me smiling and chuckling throughout the story, they even made me chuckle during the intense and thrilling excitement of their face off with a very deadly enemy.

 

And I have to say the uniqueness of the characters in this story also makes for an exhilarating change and certainly lights up my imagination while adding spice and magic to the story as well. This is a great romance to read during a break or when you have only a little time to yourself because it packs quite a sensational punch in such a short read.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books


I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.
I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

Empire of the Dragon: An Event Group Thriller by David L. Golemon
Empire of the Dragon - David. L. Golemon

I love all the books in this series by I have to admit I went into this one with a little trepidation. You see it involves an Airbender, and when I read that, all I could think about was the terrible movie that came out some years back. But after I started reading it, I was hooked, yet again, by the story. The characters in the Event Group have become like family for me and I find it exciting to see what secrets they uncover.

 

 

This one is about the fabled city of Shangri-La and involves an asteroid that hit earth millions of years ago that is able to give people interesting powers over the elements, hence the airbender. Oh, and longevity too, which would be fantastic for a person like me who has too many books to read and not enough years left in this life to read them all.

Throw in some baddies, of course, who are after this rock for it's powers and the Event group, who tries to stop them, and you have a rip-roaring adventure!

 

Another fun, exciting and great adventure for a group that I have faithfully followed over the years. Definitely recommended! 

 

5 stars
