About: Keira and her mother disagree over what makes a good husband, but the truth is, prospects in her village are slim. So when Aaron Drake arrives in the village and sets his sights on her, she cannot help but be interested. It’s not just his handsome looks or easy confidence that captures her attention, but rather an air of otherness. Something that sets him apart.

But Aaron is not the only new arrival. A fire-breathing dragon has taken up residence in the surrounding mountains, and the villagers are certain that it is just a matter of time before the creature destroys them all. There is more to the creature than meets the eye, however, and when danger comes it is not from the dragon, but from one of their own. But it is Keira’s heart that is most at risk, and she must decide if she can pay the price that love demands.

Review: I really enjoyed reading this book, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by it.

It started well enough, and then by the middle of it, I was hooked.

I do have to say that everything happens relatively quickly between the two main characters (Aaron and Keira), however, it doesn’t feel forced. It felt completely natural, which I guess at the time in which the book is set, makes sense.

The story flowed well and the characters were well defined.

The reason for the 4 and not 5 had to do with “nobody but a few knew they were dragons”. So you’re telling me that you have a castle full of servants and only one knows that the master is a dragon?

Sorry for any spoilers, but this bugged me for the majority of the book, it’s just brushed a side, and I just wanted to know more about it.

There’s a scene when you have a house full of dragon changers at one point and the servants don’t say anything because apparently they don’t realise? So the author is either saying they are dumb or blind.

Anyway, I’ve gone off on a little bit of a rant, but I guess that just shows how much it annoyed me.

Anyway, the book was very enjoyable to be fair, and I quite liked the writing style.

It flowed nicely and was very easy to read. In fact, I read this all in one sitting and have to say it made for a nice afternoon.

As shifter romance books go, this one was very enjoyable.

I’m not sure that it will be everyone’s cup of tea though, but I’m quite looking forward to reading the second one in the series.

If you want something that is quick and easy to read, some romance, with a bit of drama (but nothing too heart wrenching), then this is probably a good book for you.
