Blurb: In exchange for a vial of dragon’s blood to save her brother’s life, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to one of the British dragon-shifter clans. Being a sacrifice means signing a contract to live with the dragon-shifters for six months to try to conceive a child. Her assigned dragonman, however, is anything but easy. He’s tall, broody, and alpha to the core. There’s only one problem—he hates humans.
Due to human dragon hunters killing his mother, Tristan MacLeod despises humans. Unfortunately, his clan is in desperate need of offspring to repopulate their numbers and it’s his turn to service a human female. Despite his plans to have sex with her and walk away, his inner dragon has other ideas. The curvy human female tempts his inner beast like no other.
Review: Originally, this comes in four separate parts, basically little novellas that make a novel when put together. I thought about doing them as separate reviews but, I decided against that since it didn’t stop for me.
The parts blended so well, it was like I wasn’t even stopping to go to a different book.
Not my usual go-to kind of book but, it did keep me on the edge and asking questions. The way they talked to each other left me questioning their actual relationship and kept me from really loving the book. She also talks about being really shy about certain kinds of things yet blatantly says it out loud, in a crowd. Granted, it was for a good reason but still.
It had me feeling somewhat sad in some parts, hopeful and happy.
All-in-all, it was a pretty good series, although I don’t know about reading it again. I wasn’t totally crazy about it but it did get me wondering about the next series of books.
If I get to reading them, hopefully I’ll feel better about the next set because this could go a couple of ways. It could be worse, the same, or better. Hopefully, it’ll be better.
Thank you for reading my review.
