Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks
Vampire Mine - Kerrelyn Sparks

Loved the storyline and the hero. Connor has been dear to my heart from the start of the series. The way he has been dealing with Shanna's father - brilliant.
But Marielle and Connor fell in love too quickly and the heroine was all over the place. She was funny and sassy one moment and the next she was so innocent and sweet. I don't know how explain it - it just felt wrong. So, 3.5 stars.

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

Minus half a point because the Chameleon made an appearance and is still alive.

 

Unlike the previous two, the H gets along with the king - his brother. So no conflict there. Instead, the challenge is to find out the nature of the curse, and by extension, to save (if possible) the current queen. Unfortunately, she's too far gone. Unfortunately too, the h's being the elf makes her suspect.

 

The H has secrets of his own, though I suspected in the previous book when we first met him. Eventually they figure things out. Not in time to save the queen, and unfortunately that lead the king to attempt to bargain with the one who'd been leading him astray. So the Chameleon can shift into a dragon, but has no fire. And as an Embraced, he can talk in that guise too.

 

I would like to know how they're supposed to kill him. He was roasted, nobody was paying attention, and he turned into a phoenix and escaped to annoy us another book.

Great Continuation of a Great Series
Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

Gwennore is an elf who grew up on the isle of moon with her adopted sisters. Now that they are moving away and marrying, Gwennore feels a little lost. However, when she visits them at their kingdoms, some of the locals pick on her. While avoiding more rude locals, a dragon takes her niece, so she jumps on him to try to protect her. Little did she know that her life was about to change.

I loved the next adventure in this series. I thought that Siles and Gwennore were there perfect fit for eachother. The story and the characters were very well written and there were a number of funny spots in this book. I can’t wait for the next one. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This book was just a whole lot of fun! I have been a huge fan of this series since I read an early copy of the first book so I was really looking forward to this newest installment. The fact that I knew that there would be dragons in the book made it all just a little bit better. I went into this book with some pretty high expectations and I am happy to report that they were all met. I read most of this book in a single sitting because I didn't want to put the book down. 

This is the third book in the Embraced series and while this book could be read as a stand alone, I do think that this is a series that works best read in order whenever possible. I have grown to love the characters that appear in this series and had a nice time seeing how some of them are doing. This book focuses on Gwennore and it was really nice to get to know her better in this story. I really like Brody's character and was happy to find that he played a large role in this story as well. 

Gwennore is an elf and like her adopted sisters she has a special power due to her birth date. She has the ability to determine the cause of an illness through touch which makes healing possible. She has a close relationship with her sister's daughter and doesn't hesitate to put her life on the line to protect the child when she is kidnapped by a dragon. Gwennore soon learns that she can speak to dragons and forms a bond with her rescuer, Puff.

Silas is highly respected and carries himself with authority. He is also very easy on the eyes and is the kind of man that can make things happen. He has decided to watch over Gwennore while she is at the castle and takes on the role of protector. With her skills as healer, she can help the people of his country along with the queen. 

I loved Silas and Gwennore together. I really thought that all of their feelings towards each other felt completely authentic. Silas is able to see things in Gwennore that others have missed. She is used to be treated poorly because she is an elf so she is surprised to find that Silas is genuinely interested. They had a lot of chemistry together and I loved the spark that seemed to fill the page when they shared a scene. 

I would recommend this series to others. This was a book that brought a big smile to my face as I turned the pages. I loved that there was just a bit of humor mixed into the story at just the right times. I cannot wait to read more books in this fun series. 

I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press.

Initial Thoughts
I had such a good time with this book. Gwen and Silas were both amazing characters and I loved them together. It was fun to see all of the different abilities of the characters take shape in this story. I really like how a bit of humor is worked into the story just when needed.

New Release Review! Eight Simple Rules For Dating a Dragon (The Embraced #3) by Kerrelyn Sparks!
Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

 

 

From the brilliant imagination of Kerrelyn Sparks comes a bold new fantasy romance series in which passion and magic collide. Behold the Embraced…

Gwennore has a talent. An Elf able to track down the cause of an illness and heal it, she’s a valuable asset to her people. But when the kidnapping of a young girl thrusts Gwennore into the very heart of the realm of the dragons, she discovers not only a place of power and magic, but also a haunted land, plagued by an ancient curse that all but ensures extinction to the royal family. But when she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, they strike a bargain—save the country from its cursed illness, and he will return the kidnapped girl. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon, but never did making a deal with the devil feel so good…

Silas has no way of curing the family he’s loyally served for years. But when a beautiful elf, long considered the enemy of the dragons, comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to passion and desire in a way he’s never felt before. But can he trust a sworn enemy to save the very existence he holds dear? And can their love survive those that threaten to tear them apart?

 

 

Eight Simple Rules For Dating a Dragon is a brilliant story that takes readers into another world where they can find out exactly what is needed to fall in love with a sexy dragon.

 

Gwenmore and Silas are strong, charismatic characters that are easily draw readers in and hold them hostage as they dazzle readers with excellent dialogue and magic and an exciting romance that has readers wanting what the couple have. The romance is full of sizzling chemistry and steamy love scenes but the relationship is not an easy one with lots of obstacles and emotional issues to overcome.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of anticipation building suspense and thrilling danger in a fascinating world where betrayal is around every corner and surprising twists keeps everyone on their toes. The well written world brings it all to vivid life, making it easy for readers to picture each and every scene and to really understand and know each character.

 

Kerrelyn Sparks has created a fantasy world that is exciting, captivating and full of wonderful characters and fascinating plots that easily draw readers in and keeps them completely enthralled from beginning to end. I have read all three books in the series which can be read as standalone and easily understood as each couple gets their own book but I think to get the best enjoyment and understanding of the entire plot they should be read in sequence. All three stories kept me glued to the pages and while I could not possibly tell you which book is my favorite, I really enjoyed spending time with Gwenmore and Griffin and I can’t wait to visit their world again.
