3.5 stars, but rounded up.
So, reading and writing this review has given me
another an opportunity to Google Jason Momoa pictures, since he reminds me of the male lead character, Fearghus (who is a SEXY dragon shifter).
On one hand, this was a pretty typical fantasy romance, but it also had some high points that put it above your average, tropey love story. Annwyl is a 21 year old virgin, but she grew up with an abusive father and brother and spent all her time learning to be a warrior, so she could eventually take the throne and save her people from evil tyranny. Annwyl is pretty bad-ass. She says what she feels, does what she wants, and knows what she wants. That is refreshing. There is little angst. The sex scenes are very steamy (and there are a LOT of them).
Fearghus is a fun romantic hero. He’s also got LOTS of sexy dragon shifter brothers, so that means lots more books in the series! HAHA – His sister, Morfryd is awesome as well. Another strong female character in a romance. Imagine that.
So, if you like PNR or fantasy romance, you’ll probably like this. It’s got all the “good stuff”
(raunchy sex scenes) plus a plot plus strong characters you don’t want to bitchslap. That’s a win in my book! Where’s book 2?!?! *goes to find it*
