“We’re dragons. We don’t do the mushy friend thing.” - Daniel

The dragon-shifter king will do anything to keep his mate alive…even if it means war.

After millennia as king of the dragon-shifters, Daniel Ashborne wants a little peace and quiet, especially from the beautiful Hollywood starlet who haunts his memories. His escape tactics end abruptly when he is called to the ER to save the one woman he wants to forget, but who now bears his mark.

Shelby Kincade’s life and movie career were nearly destroyed when Daniel vanished a year ago. Now he’s back, claiming they have been accidentally mated. Getting over him once was hard enough, but she must choose either the life of her dreams or the man she can’t live without.

With peace finally on the horizon between the dragon-shifters and the Hunters, an assassination attempt on the dragon king and his mate shatters everything. Tensions rebuild as Daniel and his loyal team of shifters try to discover who put out the hit. Enemy and ally lines are crossed, but in the end--after the battle ash has settled--no one could have foreseen who has plotted for their own gain.

CONTENT WARNING: Graphic fight scenes, lots of great sex, and hot, hot, hot dragon men.

The Winter holiday months are always rather hard on me, review and reading wise. I always start to feel a little run down with reviewing and I feel indecisive when trying to choose a read. It’s a state that leaves me feeling both annoyed and frustrated. As I seem to have collected a shitton of Kindle freebies, I am once again flipping through my library to see if any thing looks interesting.

Today’s winner was The Dragon’s Heart, acquired in December 2014.

The Dragon’s Heart has been a trying read thus far. I have to fight with myself to keep from DNF’ing it – so I’m slowly chugging along.

Let me be honest. I pretty much hated The Dragon’s Heart. I didn’t feel any connection to any of the characters. I didn’t understand the motivation of most of the characters. I didn’t care for the behavior of the MCs AND I felt the heroine was TSTL. Plus it seems that the normal, typical human behavior upon learning that – dragons are real, dragons are shapeshifters and your disappeared BF is a one – is not acting very surprised or panicked or anything.

This should have been a DNF. 🙁
