When Heidi Corrigan went on a short vacation with her best friend Maggie to New Freedom, she certainly didn’t expect her lack of outdoor skills and her hatred of bees to land her in a predicament. Captured by the Fae and assumed to be a witch thanks to a drunken love spell casting, she is soon rescued by Liam McIntyre who is not just a sexy Irish man, but a dragon. They will undertake an adventure that spans dealing with her dysfunctional family, his enemies and politics, and their newfound love for one another.
The first thing I have to say is that while I love erotica and romance, this book read so well that it could easily have been a mainstream fantasy story! The world building was first class, the characters were either loveable or loath inducing. I loved the romance scenes and the heat was sizzling (dragon pun intended). Heidi and Liam are a great couple of reluctant lovers that find the ultimate mating experience in the end of this story. While it is a cliffhanger, it is a happily for now ending which I find awesome and doesn’t leave me with anxiety while waiting for the next book.
I give this book five stars for it’s very ambitious and successful attempt at mixing romance/erotica with fantasy and contemporary settings. I eagerly await the next book!
