Love or duty—Can he give up his mate to save his clan?
Jayrian is a dragon shifter with a plan—find a human woman to wake his prince, save his clan, and help end a war that's raged for centuries. The key to making it all come together? The sweet, shy, and all-kinds-of-adorable small town librarian he's starting to like way more than he should.
Gretchen isn't ambitious, she loves her job at the library, even if part of her secretly longs for adventure. Real life can't possibly live up to the fantasy she reads though. But when she invites the handsome mystery man she's been crushing on at work to dinner, she might just end up with a bigger adventure than she knows what to do with…
The more Jayrian gets to know her, the more he knows Gretchen is the perfect woman to wake his prince. She's also everything he ever wanted … and nothing he can have if he wants his plan to succeed. He's willing to give up his life for his prince, but can he give up Gretchen when the time comes?
Dreaming of the Dragon Shifter is book 1 in the Return of the Dragons series.
Misguided and odd
It’s had moments where I thought the book was good. When Gretchen met Jayrien’a family.
But other parts just felt confusing or like filler.
Example Gretchen’s family Christmas dinner felt like vehicle just to show how she stayed in town although she wants adventure in her life. A conversation in the library with Jayiran in the travel section could’ve sufficed.
Just opened a weird story about her father and her aunt and took a large portion of the book. Which is odd for the length of the book and to move the story to the point.
