Will Love’s Flame Quench the Dragon’s Fire? ...
The past never stays in the past, it rears its ugly head eventually. James the Black Douglas knows this all too well. With a past that has left him vengeful and his dragon blood thirsty, his reputation as a ruthless warrior haunts his enemies in their sleep. As his allegiance stands with Robert Bruce, the King of Scotland, he must now repay a debt to the king and agrees to marry his daughter, Abigale Bruce. The problem is he doesn’t want a wife. When flames start to burn out of control between him and the auburn-haired lass, he must decide to either kindle the flames of passion or shelter her from the truth and set her free.
It’s What Shines in the Dark That Brings Forth Your True Light...
Determined to keep his daughter safe and out of the hands of the English, Robert hides Abigale behind the safe walls of a nunnery. After eight long years of living her life in seclusion, Abigale is finally set free. But her new found freedom comes to an abrupt halt when she learns of her betrothal to the infamous Bogeyman – James the Black Douglas. She soon finds herself falling in love with the uncontainable and haunted man. Is her love enough to soften his hardened heart?

I wanted to like it...
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not a bad read. I love the concept and the world where the characters lived. The characters were charming to a point though.
As the story progressed they seemed to morph and change until they were completely different characters without solid personalities. I couldn’t tell if Abigail was gentle and shy or hot blooded and outgoing. She flip flopped so much it was hard to read her. Her character seemed to change depending on what was needed for the scene.
Some of the story felt rushed and I felt as if the characters never made a real believable connection.
I wanted to like this lore, but found myself skimming through chapters as the 360 degree character changes severely displaced me without fail.
I might give this series another go, but I won’t be expecting much.
There were a great deal of mistakes in this book and inconsistencies in the story. So many that it brought me out of the story quite a bit. The best thing I can say about this book is that it’s free.
