She doesn't believe in fairytales, until a Dragon comes knocking on her door.
Castor Falk escaped from the ruins of Castle Blackthorne on the Isle of Pain with one goal in mind, to find his half-brothers. If anyone deserved to hear tell of the end of Dragomir's reign of terror, it was them. Besides, what else did a dying Dragon have to do with the little time he had left?
Jozette Keeper was too old for story time. That didn't stop the curvy normal from indulging in the longtime tradition that filled the bookstore with local children every day at two o'clock. It was just something to pay the bills while she worked on her non-fiction book.
When a handsome stranger knocks on her door in the middle of the night, she finds herself in the middle of her very own fairytale. Is Jozette willing to take a leap of faith to save the dying Dragon at her door?
Castor needs help locating his brothers and winds up knocking on the door of the one person he never thought to find. His fated mate. Was Fate cruel so cruel as to deliver his garnet rose only to take her away again?
The Dragon must decide, either tell her who she is to him and bring her the pain of his imminent death, or simply fade away from memory.
Great Finale to a Terrific Series
While later books in some series lose their charm, this one does not. I loved the fairytale aspect of how Castor and Jozi meet, and the realistic manner in which their relationship grows. Unlike some shifter novels, the focus on the connection between Castor and his dragon is a bit different in a good way. I found myself cheering this couple along every step of the way.
The secondary characters are funny and well-written, the pacing is good. and the setting is excellent.
This book is for someone who wants to try a new cozy read in a series. I plan to go back and read the first four, as they sound delicious.
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Phenomenally written! I loved it!
Castor and Jozette’s book was such a gem of a book! Gorri constantly puts out masterpieces and I think she truly needs recognition for her work. I was having such a nasty day dealing with my ex wife and her family pertaining to my kids and I was super stressed and had a long day filled with appointments. I pulled out this book and instantly escaped to a world of Gorri-sensei’s creation. Her talent is limitless. I was instantly swept away. Castor, the last long lost brother of the Falk clan emerges from the Isle of Pain after 500 years of captivity. Five hundred years of being kept prisoner. In a way I can relate with Castor, with his pain and suffering. His inner scars and turmoil and his inner beast that he struggled with. Yet when he found his Jozette things for him just cleared up. Things started to make sense for him and in a way even out. Things he experienced and suffered through baca e a thing of the past….no longer mattered because in the face of her, she was everything. I thought that beautiful. Gorri has a way with words and a way with putting things in perspective that makes me think. Will the things I’m experiencing maybe change in the same manner of speaking? I have no idea but it’s a good wish to have. This book though was extremely good. It was filled with such passion, but confusion on the part of our female mc. She had her own things to work through. I do love that we see old friends in this. Her place of business where she worked. Marissa was also a hoot. There are a couple of books here for the future that I can’t wait to read 😍😉. This grumpy bear 🐻 gave this book 5 dragons 🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉. It was a truly amazing tale. One I think everyone should experience. Start from book one, naturally. Read about all the Falk clan and how these emo boys 😂 found their mates.
I received this book as an ARC from booksprout for my honest and unbiased review.
