A Woman on a Mission

Grace Clark has always done things safe. She’s never colored outside of the law, but she has a book due and has found the perfect spot to break through her writer’s block. Or so she thinks. Right up until Arian suddenly appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn’t just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian—the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she’s ever met.

A King with a Purpose

Arian is a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave. Recently woken, he’s about to leave his mountain to join his brethren in a war when he’s alerted that someone has crossed onto Dreagan. He’s ready to fight . . . until he sees the woman. She’s innocent and mortal—and she sets his blood aflame. He recognizes the danger approaching her just as the dragon within him demands he claim her for his own…

Quick & Dirty: Dragon King has it all from a steamy romance, wonderful writing, action scenes to an amazing cast of characters.

Opening Sentence: Grace was screwed.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Dragon King is an absolutely sexy read. The characters are entertaining and the writing sucked me in to the story. I really felt like I was in the highlands of Scotland sitting on the side of the mountain with Grace. I really liked this setting and the dragon’s story. I just want to stop everything and read the rest of this series. I thought this novella was that good. I have never read anything in this series yet but I will. I think this could be read as a standalone because the world is set up and explained in such a way that I didn’t feel like was missing out on anything.

Grace is desperate to finish her novel. She has been fighting terrible writer’s block. She does the last thing she can think of and that is to travel to Scotland, the place where her book takes place. She is hoping the atmosphere will help her write. She drives to a location that she thinks is perfect for writing and write she does. It was the perfect option for her troubles.

Grace suffers from a weird phobia. She is scared of storms. She is a little worried when she sets out because of the rain but she faces her fear because writing is the number one thing she needs to focus on. As the rain picks up she seeks refuge in a cave as she continuously writes.

Arian has just woken up from his dragon sleep. He can sense that his cave has been invaded. He is intrigued by the woman who is sitting at the entrance to his cave. She shouldn’t have been able to see it but he is enraptured by what she is doing. He thinks she is a wonderful storyteller but he needs to find out how she got to his cave. Arian’s cave comes under attack by Dark Fae and he must decide whether Grace knows anything about it.

As a novella, the sparks fly pretty fast between Grace and Arian. Once she is aware of Arian she isn’t scared of him. I do think she is a little insane because he is naked when they first meet and she doesn’t really think anything too crazy (at least she doesn’t dwell on it).

Arian is a dragon who can magically transform into a human shape. He is drool worthy. Arian follows his intuition when it comes to Grace. He is a little selfish and doesn’t want Grace to leave him so he uses his power to control weather to keep her in his cave. For the most part, Grace is levelheaded. She isn’t freaking out too much about the things she is finding out about Arian and the world that he is from.

Dragon King has it all from a steamy romance, wonderful writing, action scenes to an amazing cast of characters. I really enjoyed this novella and I’m already hooked onto the character of Constantine. I really want to know what is going on with the leader of the Dragon Kings. If you like dragons and want to read a series that is well written. I would check out this novella and see if it hooks you like it did me.

Notable Scene:

“You’re quiet,” Grace said.

Arian found himself smiling. He noticed that he had been lightly rubbing her back the entire time. “So are you, lass.”

“I’m thinking.”

“About?” he urged.

She snuggled closer to him. “Don’t laugh.”

“I would never,” he responded solemnly because he had a feeling whatever she was about to say was about them.

Grace flattened her palm on his chest. “I’ve not been writing it correctly.”

“Writing what, exactly?”

“Passion. I forgot what it was,” she whispered. “I went off what I saw in movies or read, but I haven’t…experience…it in many years.”

He didn’t like thinking about other men being with her, but they were in the past. Where they would remain. “Were they no’ good lovers?”

“They were all right, but without passion, it all feels…empty.”
