Reviews of Royal Dragons of Alaska: Book #1, Book #2

Heat Factor: Not closed door, but not very intense or explicit

Character Chemistry: The way they go through their captivity together is just absolutely charming

Plot: You think it’s going to be an angsty, pining, stealing-the-fiancée kind of a thing, but then they get kidnapped and everything goes sideways

Overall: My favorite so far in this series. SO FUN.

Character Chemistry: It kinda wasn’t there and then all of a sudden it was?

Plot: Let’s have a marriage of convenience because of reasons

Overall: I liked it but I kinda don’t know why
