New Release Review: Dragon Laird (Dragon Spawn Chronicles #1) by Alyna Lochlan
Dragon Laird - Alyna Lochlan

 

 

Highlanders, dragons, a quest and adventure. Enchanted as a child, Rhiannon grows up hidden, safe from a destiny that could be disastrous to her world. But when an evil sorcerer, seeking to destroy the Power of Two, opens the veiled gate that holds the dragons underground, Rhiannon must emerge. She must find the warrior marked with the dragon's flame, for only he can defeat the evil devouring the land.

Laird Dylan is a shadow in his own keep. Branded at birth with a dragon's head mark, he is shackled to a cursed life. Now dragons lay waste to his land. But his duty to stop them is derailed when he meets a woman who is unafraid of his shadowed past--a woman he could love.

In the midst of evil, Dylan and Rhiannon find a love more powerful than dragons and sorcerers. But will it be lost to save the world they know?

 

 

 

Dragon Laird is a story that is full of emotional turbulence, fabulous characters and a spellbinding world that readers will become fascinated with.

 

Dylan and Rhiannon are fabulous, well written characters that readers can really get into and the fact that they are destined despite being enemies adds spice to their steamy attraction and delightful romance. There is lots of emotional turbulence that really help readers get to know the heart of the characters and keep them engaged with the couple as the story unfolds which of course also adds lots of depth to the characters and their romance.

 

Secrets, twists and turns and hidden enemies keep the suspense building throughout the story and keep readers on the edge of their seat throughout as Dylan and Rhiannon’s romance pull the reader into a quest full of magic and an evil that could destroy their world.

 

Alyna Lochlan is an author that I will definitely be keeping my eye on as I was completely enchanted by Dragon Laird from beginning to end. She brought her world to life with well written words that painted a vivid and enchanting picture and strong compelling characters that made it easy to become caught up in and I am looking forward to visiting her Dragon Spawn Chronicles again.

 

 

 

 

Dragon Laird is the 1st book in the Dragon Spawn Chronicles.

Book review: THE SCOT BEDS HIS WIFE by Kerrigan Byrne
The Scot Beds His Wife (Victorian Rebels) - Kerrigan Byrne

 

I loved this book from the start. I have to admit that I’m an uber fan of marriage of convenience and force marriage so of course I jumped (quite literally) at the chance to read this book. However I was not very happy when I realized there were secrets involved and that the final outcome would depend on how the main characters would react to the discovery of those secrets. I just don’t like romances that start off on untruths or half truths, I just don’t. 

But the feels; THE FEELS, I tell you!! 

Samantha is an American spitfire with plenty of wit and determination, used to do whatever necessary in order to survive. When trouble arises in America she sees no other choice but to travel to Scotland. There Gavin awaits for her, and true to his rakish reputation, he will attempt anything even seduce her if that would sway her to relinquish her land to him. 

Ok, so one thing that had me laughing – and rolling my eyes- at the beginning was the fact that she would not stop admiring his good looks. It was paragraph after paragraph of her mentioning how well sculpted and how “magnificent” he was. She even called him a Celtic god! I just thought goodness, it’s this how it’s going to be? Thankfully it wasn’t. Sam proved to be no push-over. She took the reins of her new life and show no fear in the face of trouble. I specially loved that even though she was a foreigner in a new land, she easily made new friends, knew who to contact, where to go, and what to do. She was a woman with a mission and was determined to see it through. Gavin was a little on the obstinate side. Not that that was a bad thing, I mean, who can say no to a Scot’s charm, am I right? But when a man kisses a woman without asking permission first, then let’s just say I was verra, verra happy that said woman always carried her precious guns with her *happy face* I loved how Sam put him in his place every time he wanted to be all charm and temptation. 

When someone from her past attacks her, Gavin offers to marry her in order to protect her but also to gain access to her land. They do marry but their relationship was complicated to say the least, what with Gavin’s reputation, his infamous father and family, and the initial enmity between them. They want to see their nuptials as a business transaction only so they really don't want to confide each other with their dark pasts. 

As the story unravels and they get to know each other better, Sam understands why her husband has led the life of the notorious libertine and affable womanizer he’s always been. And then she wishes to tell him everything because she’s only told him bits and pieces of her life but not the entire truth. And the one time she had the chance to tell him EVERYTHING… she discloses another secret but not what he needs to hear! It was kind of frustrating, actually. And Gavin feels there is still so much in her heart that's yet to be to discovered but is afraid to ask because he believes it may have to do with him, his flaws, his past, his own desires, and AGHHHH!!! In the end so much grief would have been avoided if a hard but simple truth was told when they had the chance. 

So generally speaking, I still think this was an awesome read because despite my peculiar dislikes I thought the romantic arc hit all the right cords. All the characters were very well defined from start to finish, from the rambunctious old couple of Calybrid and Locryn, who sort of became Sam’s two right hands, and who had me laughing at their bickering and inappropriate comments, to Gavin’s own mother, who grew out of her shell with Sam and other loving character’s help. All in all it was a lovely read, which can be totally read as a standalone, and I absolutely recommend it. 

** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

The Highlander is All That
The Highlander Is All That (Untamed Highlanders) - Sabrina York

I was invited by the publisher to read this book and I am glad that I was. I read the previous book in the series (but honestly didn't remember what happened in it) but I feel as though it is not necessary to read the previous books in order to understand what is happening.

 

This book follows sisters Anne and Elizabeth as they are sponsored by their Duke cousin this season in order to find husbands. Anne, due to a previous heartbreak, does not want to get married. Elizabeth is not happy with her suitors. Their lives turn upside down when their cousin sends two of his friends, Hamish and Ranald, in his place to protect and escort the girls.

 

I definitely enjoyed reading about Elizabeth and Hamish more than Anne and Ranald. Anne just seemed a bit too stubborn and a bit too reserved for me. I did enjoy that the story switched between the four main characters as I feel if it would have concentrated on just one of the couples then the book would have seemed too short and would have fell flat.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

6 Stars!!
The Highlander Is All That (Untamed Highlanders) - Sabrina York

Sabrina York has hit another one out of the park with The Highlander Is All That.  I'm giving this book 5 stars, only because I can't give it 6.  Ms York has delivered a well-written book. Her characters are truly amazing in this book.  Kudos to Ms York for the characters and dialog in this fun book. Buckle your seat belts for the rollercoaster ride that is Elizabeth and Hamish's story.  There is plenty of drama, action, suspense and sizzle that will hold readers hostage to their e-readers. As an added bonus, you also get the mini stories of Elizabeth's sisters woven into this story.  I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next read by the talented Sabrina York.  The Highlander Is All That is book 3.5 of the Untamed Highlanders Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
