Review: The Dragon Prince’s Bride by Elva Birch (2021)

Royal Dragons of Alaska, Book #3

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.

Review: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (2006)

Psy-Changeling, Book #1

Heat Factor: They both think they’re having sex dreams about each other, but it’s actually real

Character Chemistry: It’s always fun when the protagonist knows fated mates is a thing but has no idea how that manifests and it takes a while for everyone to figure it out

Plot: She’s trying to avoid being lobotomized because she has feelings, he’s trying to hunt down a serial killer, they’re fated mates

Overall: Nalini Singh is a queen, and I shouldn’t start a 19 book series right now, but I’m hooked

Review: Dragon Dad’s Nanny by Amelia Wilson (2020)

Dragon Dads Love Chronicles, Book #4

Heat Factor: I feel like it’s supposed to be hot but…it’s not

Character Chemistry: is secondary to everything else going on 

Plot: Sam, a shifter, feels like he’s a bad dad, so he’s initiated a custody review so his shifter hunter ex-wife can have custody of his dragon twin daughters. (Yep. That’s right.)  Meanwhile, nanny AnnaLee can’t have children. 

Overall: This book makes me want to smash the patriarchy (not in a good way)

Review: The Elementalist by S.N. Hunt (2020)

Journey to Zlorta, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s a fair amount of fantasy sizzle in here.

Character Chemistry: It was oddly flat, considering the fated mates/whoopie frequency

Plot: Sarah is kidnapped from her home after a foiled assault and brought beyond the Veil, where she learns that she is a key player in an attempted sort of magical coup, only she had no idea magic even existed.

Overall: This had so much potential but it just wasn’t fully formed.

*TW – attempted sexual assault.

Review: Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers (2021)

Heat Factor: Not quite fade to black, but the sex writing is more focused on the emotions than the mechanics

Character Chemistry: Veering into insta-love territory; maybe it’s fate

Plot: Grace has an identity crisis

Overall: Messy and beautiful
