EIGHT SIMPLE RULES FOR DATING A DRAGON
“Deeply satisfying, delightfully swoon-inducing.”—Publishers Weekly on Kerrelyn Sparks’s Love at Stake series
Gwennore is an Elf able to track down the cause of a certain illness and heal it—a valuable asset to her people. But when she is thrust into the realm of the dragons, she discovers a haunted place of power, passion, and magic—one that is plagued by an ancient curse. When she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, Gwen knows she’s entered a whole new world of trouble. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon. So why does making a deal with the devil feel so good?
Silas has no way of saving the royal family he’s served for years. But when a beautiful, innocent elf comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to desire in a way he’s never felt before. But how can he trust a sworn enemy. . .and how can he live without her, in Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks.
Sparks's pleasant third Embraced fantasy romance (after So I Married a Sorcerer) pits gentle elven healer Gwennore and heroic dragon shape-shifter Silas Dravenko against an evil shifter, an ancient curse, and their own fragile hearts. Queen Freya of Norveshka, the land of dragons, is desperate after the death of her children and has been ordering her royal guard to bring her replacements. Gwennore tries to save King Leofric's daughter, Eviana, from being kidnapped by one of the queen's dragon guards, and is taken in Eviana's place. The dragons think the queen is cursed like other Norveshki rulers before her, but Gwennore's psychic ability to diagnose illnesses suggests Freya's madness comes from poison. She teams up with sexy Norveshki general Silas to find the truth a plan complicated by their growing feelings for each other. As with Sparks's previous books, a tangled plot resolves with ease after the efforts of the determined lovers and their friends. Fans of Sparks's lighthearted romances will feel right at home here.
Heart pounding adventure
Emotionally thrilling, heart pounding, action packed romantic adventure filled with danger, mystery and passion. Loved every exciting twist and turn.
Gwennore is sweet, loyal, brave, smart and an Elf with the ability to target and identify the source of any illness. Silas is a sexy, charming, strong and protective alpha male leader of his countries army and looking for a way to save his people from plague and madness. Their attraction is instant and undeniable, the banter is whitey and fun. Highly entertaining reading.
Very entertaining! This has a great mix of fantasy, paranormal and historical romance. You have dragons, elves, shifters, trolls, talking trees, royal families and more.
The author has a good sense of humor that shows through her characters and great vision in her world building. This series would make a fantastic movie series. I could easily see this world and it's many fascinating characters through her words.
It will depend on the reader if this could be a standalone or not. It has continuing characters and does mention things that happened in previous books, but each book focuses on one couple and their story.
I'm looking forward to Sorcha's story next! ARC provided by NetGalley.
