Legend claims
When Scotland fell to English rule
The Highland dragons took a vow:
Freedom at any price.


The war may be over, but so long as English magic controls the Highlands, not even a dragon laird can keep his clan safe. What Cathal MacAlasdair needs is a warrior fierce enough to risk everything, yet gifted enough to outwit an enemy more monster than man.

What he needs is Sophia.

Alchemist Sophia Metzger traveled to Loch Arach in search of knowledge. She never dreamed she'd learn to do battle, ride through the stars on the back of a dragon, or catch the eye of a Highland laird. But as her quest turns to sizzling chemistry and inescapable danger, she'll soon discover the thrill of being caught in a dragon's claws.

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it was really refreshing getting a historical paranormal rather than a futuristic or current day one I especially love the Highland Dragon. Yum.

Two bumps for the author both for her writing style and author voice, I highly enjoyed it.

I favored the character and plot development which was long in detail however considering its the first book starting a new series for the Highland Dragons I thought it was a great start.

I think I really needed something fresh in this paranormal romance genre that didn't feel as if it was cut and pasted fill in the blank formula that many books these days feel they've been doing. I really needed this book at this time. Thanks Miss Cooper for a great read.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...

Have I ever mentioned that I love...I mean seriously love dragons?
Enter the Dragon - Jamie Sullivan

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I have so you can imagine my heartbreak when I realized that this was a case of 'dragon fail'.

 

So here's the thing overall this story might have worked it there had been more depth in the characters, the plot and the story development. I mean really what's not to like it's dragons and it's bit of a different idea on how this dragon thing works. I really didn't find that the story was in depth about anything it was a bit like a butterfly flitting from one flower to the next touching on each but never really landing long enough to get a good look and while I admit that by virtue of the fact that there were less than 50 pages from start to finish, it doesn't surprise. What does is the fact that this was not the biggest obstacle to me liking this story.

 

Unfortunately my biggest obstacles were largely due to the reasons that this story was a different spin on the dragon myth and in the actual execution of those things. Things that aren't mentioned in the blurb and are the reason that this is me not going there because spoiling things for others is so not my thing which is why I'm just going to call it a day and say that this one didn't work for me. It's not so much about good or bad...just not my taste.

 

'Enter the Dragon' is a story from the multi-authored series entitled 'The Beastiary' and while it wasn't my thing there are a lot of good reviews out there, that just go to show we all have different taste and what's not for me may be just what someone else is looking for.

So funny!
Dragon Actually - G.A. Aiken

G.A. Aiken's Dragon Kin series is one of my 2 favorite fantasy romance series EVER! I read it to learn just as much as I read it for enjoyment. The author has such an amazing gift when it comes to writing humor into a story.

 

Dragon Actually is book 1 in the Dragon Kin series. I would recommend vising the author's website for her recommended reading order as that really adds to the overall hilarity. This story features one of the fiercest heroines in Annwyl the Bloody. I love her strength, her passion, and her complete acceptance of herself. She shakes up her dragon's quiet life, bringing his siblings and father into his space, and forcing him to once again care about the world...well, the part that involves Annwyl anyway. The interactions between the dragon siblings and their parents is so funny.

 

Highly recommended.

ARC Review: Dragon Burn (Dark Kings #11.5)(1001 DarkNights) by Donna Grant

ARC Review Copy

 

In this scorching Dark Kings novella, New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant brings together a determined Dragon King used to getting what he wants and an Ice Queen who thaws for no one.

 

Marked by passion

 

A promise made eons ago sends Sebastian to Italy on the hunt to find an enemy. His quarry proves difficult to locate, but there is someone who can point him in the right direction – a woman as frigid as the north. Using every seductive skill he’s acquired over his immortal life, his seduction begins. Until he discovers that the passion he stirs within her makes him burn for more…

 

Gianna Santini has one love in her life – work. A disastrous failed marriage was evidence enough to realize she was better off on her own. That is until a handsome Scot strolled into her life and literally swept her off her feet. She is unprepared for the blazing passion between them or the truth he exposes. But as her world begins to unravel, she realizes the only one she can depend on is the very one destroying everything - a Dragon King.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

 

 

Dragon Burn is a quick and short novella.

 

I read the prequels #0.1, #0.2, & #0.3 several years ago, but never got back to reading the others in the series. I knew from those prequels that something was going on, but not fully what. My understanding from Dragon Burn is that their is a Dragon trying to expose the Dragons to humans, but the other Dragons don’t want this, so their is a war going on.

 

Sebastian is one of the Dragon Kings who is looking for information on one of his brother Dragon Kings. Gianna is the personal assistant to the person Sebastian suspects is behind all the troubles the Dragon Kings are having.

 

Sebastian and Gianna where nice together. The romance is quick and insta-love. The chemistry is fiery. Theirs danger, trust issues, magic, ulterior motives, and a mystery on who is trying to expose the Dragons.

 

I enjoyed Dragon Burn though I might have enjoyed it more if I had read more books in the series.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

BONKERS
The Dragon Factory - Jonathan Maberry
Patient Zero - Jonathan Maberry

I kind of can't even handle how ridiculously pulpy this series is so far. Patient Zero pretends to a kind of scientrism, wherein the zombie outbreak our intrepid heroes race to thwart has, like, a modicum of scientific plausibility, I guess. Baltimore cop and chiseled jaw hero Joe Ledger gets tapped by one of those shadowy X filesy governmental organizations to track down a terrorist with a name like The Jackal. The leader of said alphabet soup organization eats cookies as his ominous tic; Joe has to murder a terrorist twice in a week; international pharma phuckers are the absolute worst. Patient Zero is good fun, with lots of kickass and a fullblown zombie outbreak to salve your need for bloodshed. 

 

But it's The Dragon Factory which really swings for the cheap seats. There's literal Nazis, genetically engineered chimera, Neanderthals, evil albino twins with a side of incest, clones, and more, so much more. SO MUCH MORE. I kept cackling through this novel, unable to believe how fucking bonkers everything was, and just when I got a handle on it, it would get MORE BONKERS. Uff da, I haven't had as much fun with something this silly in a long time. I'm going to read the shit out every single Joe Ledger novel as long as they stay this goofy,
