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, 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.

Chloe is after a story and boy does she find one. I love reading books about worlds unknown. You get to dive into some else’s world and live through their imagination. Nathaniel has so many responsibilities. I liked how the author brought the characters together. I also enjoyed all the details the author put into the story. They were so many good moments. There was a little lack in the beginning. But the story picks up and you definitely get a good read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nathaniel by Carole Mortimer is the first book in the Dragon Hearts series. This book perfectly sets up what is clearly going to be a very enjoyable series.
Chloe never expects to find a story in the middle of her holiday to Wales. But once she realises there is one surrounding the cattle and it’s inhabitants then she knows she can’t leave until she has all the details.
Although a shorter story than I expected this book sure knows how to grab your attention. The chemistry between the two main characters was absolutely sizzling hot. I thought the author did very well to get so much detail into this book and it clearly really sets the premise for the rest of the series. I am looking forward to seeing what is next.

Nathaniel is the first book in the Dragon Hearts series by Carole Mortimer. This is an exciting paranormal romance full of dragon shifters, passion, mystery, drama, insta-love, lust, different realms, some suspense, and more. I love a good shifter romance, especially dragons, so this book already had me in the palm of its hand, right from the start. What I was expecting was a bit of a light, fun, adventure with some shifters, and a little romance thrown in for good measure. I would have enjoyed it and given it a 3.5 or 4 star rating. BUT, what I found when I turned the pages of this enthralling story, WAS SO MUCH MORE! The book is fairly short, but Ms. Mortimer still manages to create a story with quite a lot of depth, while also weaving in some myth, lore, and intriguing backstory- which really sets this book apart. The tie-in with King Arthur; the ‘OtherWorld’; and all the other seemingly small, inter-connected details- really adds to the incredible story. I was hooked, reading it in a matter of hours- and loved every minute. Ms. Mortimer proves once again that she is a brilliant storyteller and wonderful writer, able to work her magic with any genre. The story she created here is romantic, exciting, sexy, erotic, emotive, and fun!
When seasoned freelance journalist Chloe Evans arrives in Wales, she was expecting a relaxing get-away- but instead of wandering the countryside enjoying the picturesque scenery and tourist sites, she thinks she may have stumbled on a story. Her natural investigative and curious nature take over and she soon finds much more than she bargained for. What she suspects to be a story on drug smuggling introduces her to a world she never imagined, one that will change her life forever. Being held captive by an incredibly sexy man, in a castle in Wales, is only the beginning of her adventure- and one you really should read to discover what happens, and all the other fantastic details, for yourself.
I really loved this story- Chloe and Nathaniel are wonderful characters who really made this story come to life. I loved their banter, and chemistry. Their connection was sizzling! I can’t wait to read all about the other eight brothers now, and am so excited to find that the books have already been released- so I don’t have to wait before I can dive right in!
Fantastic!

Thank you, Ms. Mortimer!

By: Carole Mortimer
5 out of 5 stars

The story Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1) by Carole Mortimer is a fantasy/paranormal/romance book. It is a story that I loved reading. It hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. I loved reading about the characters of Chloe Evans and Nathaniel. Chloe is a journalist that has come upon a story about a castle. The locals are tight-lipped about it however she gets some information and she visits the area surrounding the castle to investigate. It is there that she meets Nathaniel. Chloe is a beautiful, strong, and independent woman. She has a determination that is strong once she gets the scent of a story. Chloe doesn’t understand why Nathaniel affects her the way that he does. There is an intense and instant attraction between these two. Nathaniel is equally affected by Chloe. These two can’t stop thinking about each other and their desire for each other is undeniable. Will Chloe discover the mystery behind the castle and of the handsome Nathaniel? Will they act on their attraction to each other? Read this book to find out. This story does have some steamy scenes that make the temperature in the room rise. I grew to love Chloe and Nathaniel’s characters with each chapter that I read. I enjoyed the background information that is given. I also enjoyed reading about the additional characters that are introduced. This is a wonderfully written story. Highly recommended to read.
