Nathaniel Dragon Hearts Book One By Carole Mortimer

5-Stars

This was such a wonderful and steamy read. Chloe, on search for a story, discovers a hidden castle. She is asked to leave by handsome and mouth watering Nathaniel. After attempting to find out more about the castle she is caught again on the property but is taken to the dungeon after Deryk, Nathaniel’s brother, finds Nathaniel trying to let her leave again. He was angry when he let her go the first time so he was determined to keep her and question her. What Nathaniel didn’t expect was for her to end up being his mate. The two can’t stay away from each other but there is more to being a mate than they realize.
I could not put this book down. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. I absolutely loved the characters, romance, and the different scenery. Chloe had a spitfire attitude that goes perfect with red heads. Nathaniel was very chivalrous and kind. I definitely recommend this novel!

Nathaniel is the first book in Carole Mortimer’s paranormal romance series Dragon Hearts. Carole Mortimer is a new writer for me but Nathaniel will not be the last book I read! I am looking forward to reading the other books in Dragon Hearts series and I think I need also venture out and dig into other series as I absolutely loved her writing!
Nathaniel is exciting paranormal romance taking place in Wales!!!! At a castle called Pendragon!!!! There is mystery, secrets, passion… I loved how the writer pulled from different legends and setting the stage for some more goodness to come! I loved how the heroine of the story – Chloe – is not a meek submissive blushing maid but a smart mouthed wench who can connect dots and can stand up to the fiercest of alphas! I can only imagine what kind of rides the other seven brothers will take us! AND they have been already published so I can just pick up copies and spend the dreary weekends with some hot and steamy alpha dragon shifters!

This is a paranormal story about dragons of myth and legend. I love dragons so any story involving them, I am inclined to read. I found this story very interesting. The legend of King Arthur was integrated in the book but the author did a good job keeping it as a back story and didn’t let it overtake the story. The book stayed centred on the dragon shifters, Nathaniel in particular.

Nathaniel and his brothers have been around for hundreds of years searching for their mates. Nathaniel has all but given up hope until he crosses paths with a smart mouthed, head strong journalist. His dragon is roaring and demands that he claim her. Chloe is vacationing in Wales when she comes across Pendragon Castle. A castle that isn’t on any map yet has existed for as long as anyone can remember. She instinctively knows there is a story there and knows she needs to investigate. Her life changes as she’s held captive in this exciting adventure.

The book is not long so the author had to pack a lot of information in this book. Though I would have liked a little more depth in the characters, I did like them. Chloe is quirky and doesn’t know when to shut her mouth. Nathaniel, though an alpha male, tries to do right by Chloe and treats her with respect. The story was fun to read and the author did a good job laying the foundation for the rest of the series. I’m looking forward to reading about the rest of the brothers.

Nathaniel is the first book in the Dragon Hearts series. It can be read as a standalone.

It took me a little bit to get into this book, but once I was able to connect to the characters it was a good experience. It is a quick read, only took me a few hours. This story has a decently strong female character so that was refreshing. She is also a bit snarky, which makes the story a bit amusing as well.

While vacationing in Wales, Chloe makes an interesting discovery. Of course, the journalist in her won’t let it go so she finds herself alone facing an intimidating man. Between her insatiable curiosity, and her smart mouth, she lands herself in a world she never knew existed. Can she trust this mysterious Nathaniel, or is he simply lulling her into a false sense of security? Can anything she sees or hears actually be real? And if it is, is she willing to accept it? One innocent misstep and she finds that her very life may depend on just that…acceptance.

Nathaniel is book one of the Dragon Hearts Series by Carole Mortimer. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Mortimer, but it definitely won’t be the last. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series. This book really sets the scene for this Dragon Shifter series featuring the Pendragon Brothers, all alpha dragon shifter’s looking for their fated mate before they become feral. This book grabbed my attention on the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. Chloe is a reporter who discovers a castle while looking for a story in Wales. Nathaniel discovers Chloe walking on his property and the magic begins. I don’t read many shifter books, but I would definitely recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Nathaniel, Dragon Hearts #1, by Carole Mortimer is a fantasy romance featuring dragon shifters. One inquisitive woman versus a determined man to keep his distance and her away, what could possibly happen? The author quickly sets the stage for this story, along with a colorful cast of characters. I liked Nathaniel’s personality in this story was breathtaking. He may be standoffish at parts, but in the entire scheme of things – he was quite magnetic. Chloe was absolutely the best to set against this alpha male. She is persistent and holds her own. Add them together in this creative story line and it was a worthwhile read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Nathaniel by Carole Mortimer is book one in her series Dragon Hearts. This will be a great new series for Dragon paranormal books. Her story line gripped me and had me going through the roller coaster ride. It is a light hearted story which makes it a fast read. Carole Mortimer did an amazing job of introducing the characters. Even though there was not a depth to all the characters but Nathaniel and Chloe was the focus . Nathaniel is in a castle that is not on a map anywhere with a total of 5 males. Chloe is a journalist who is a strong independent woman who is not afraid to go after her story. Chloe knows there is a story with the guys living in this castle but will she get the story is another question. Will Nathaniel open himself and the secrets that go with him and the castle? One will have to read to find out.

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1) by Carole Mortimer is a sexy paranormal fantasy story of dragons. I enjoyed the little twist to the Pendragon name and the mystery that is the Pendragon castle and the secrecy that surrounds it and found this well written story very entertaining. It is a quick read that is full of humour and I really enjoyed the banter of the feisty and witty Chloe, who takes no prisoners and her sexy alpha dragon and their sexual tension. Carole has set the scene of a previous time and has written a fun read, with some hot and steamy scenes with hot and sexy dragons. My only problem was it is not long enough. I want more! I do however look forward to reading more on the Pendragon brothers. Nathaniel is a good start to the series.

ByCarole Mortimer
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Happy Reading

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1) by Carole Mortimer, 4 stars.

Chloe is a journalist who is on vacation in Wales. When she comes across a castle that is not on any map or vacation guide, she is instantly intrigued. Even the villagers cannot tell her too much. So she decides to have a look for herself. What and who she finds there astounds her. But these men, while drop dead gorgeous, must be up to something illegal. Why else all the secrecy? But the big question is, what has she really gotten herself into?

Nathaniel is one of the men living in the castle. He tries to ignore the hot woman getting too close to their home, but the second time she shows up, he know he must stop her. But she is persistent. Not to mention that a part of him doesn’t want to say no to her. But this cannot be, he does not need a woman in his life. Or does he?

This paranormal romance at its finest. Well written, the story and the characters are great. The setting is of course outstanding, giving it a more gothic feel. Well, an updated gothic feel at least. The men are sexy and the romance is quite heated. But there is more going on. If you are a fan or paranormal romance or just like fantasy and something different, this book will appeal to you. I cannot wait to read more of the books in the series and learn more about the other men.

I highly recommend then wonderful paranormal romance to adults you enjoy a fun, sexy read with lots of hot men.
