Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts #1) by Carole Mortimer was a hot, fan worthy, hooking story about the alpha of alpha-est male dragon and his soon to be mate.
My first read from this author I didn’t know what I was getting into, as this author has written many, many books, and me being like, why is this the first time I’m hearing about this? Went in with fresh eyes and a open mind. And, first impressions, I like.. I like a lot.
I am a dragon lover, and ten to collect dragon books. Seeing this I couldn’t pass it up, and I was not disappointed in the least. This quik, hot steamy read doesn’t leave room for filler, or for any real world building or character development. But, that wasn’t a bad thing, because, the focus of the story was, more about the couple, and setting the stage for the series to come. We get some back story on the brothers, we get introduced to many characters that I’m assuming will be important in later books, and we get hot insta/lust-love.
I know insta love/lust. But, the writing is so good, and engaging, that, it didn’t bother me at all. I was sucked into this story, unable to put it down. I very much enjoyed reading about Nathaniel and Chloe. As mighty alpha as he is, Chloe give it back just as hard. (In more ways than one…) They have such a fun, entertaining dynamic that, it stole the show and made you forget that, there are some elements missing. And again, even though I picked up on that, I didn’t care as much, because their story is just so good. These characters carried the story and man, that type of talent is rare.
So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get swept up in Nathaniel’s and Chloe’s crazy whirlwind love story.
