Review: Spice and Smoke by Suleikha Snyder (2012)

Bollywood Confidential, Book 1

Character Chemistry: Lots of sexual attraction

Plot: More like three short stories than one cohesive novella

Review: Heart of the Dragon by Jamie Sullivan (2018)

Heat Factor: Waggly eyebrows, for the most part

Character Chemistry: Oenyn and Richard are cute together, but it’s more about Oenyn’s growth as a young man

Plot: Oenyn, accidentally acquired by Madfall as a baby, is raised as a dragon. Richard is going to slay the dragon. Oenyn is not on board with that. 

Overall: The real hero here is Madfall, whom I love.
