Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1 ) by Carole Mortimer

5 stars!!!!!

I just love dragon shifter books. This was also a new author and series for me. I was not disappointed! This is yet another wonderful twist on the legend of King Arthur. The author’s writing style and story are so unique and refreshing.

The whole chemistry between Nathaniel and Chloe is just electric. I felt as though I was Chloe and went through all the feelings and emotions as she did. I really liked the fated mates bit. I found that I was just glued to the pages to see what would happen. I was definitely on the edge of my seat waiting to see what Chloe would decide and how it would all end. The emotions and affects of being fated mates brought so much to the book. The fact that there are seven more brothers brings so much to how the series will move on and I cannot wait. This first book is such a great starting point of this series and I cannot wait to see how the remaining stories unfold. I definitely will be reading more of this series and from this author.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 1 in a new series about a family of dragons. It would seem as if all of them are incredibly good looking and each has his own unique personality trait.

The first brother we meet is NATHANIEL. He has sparkling green eyes and doesn’t necessarily believe in a mate for life myth. Chloe is a freelance reporter who has no family, few friends and a life she is ok with. This is their tale.

NATHANIEL is a quick and dirty read. It is explicitly witten so you don’t have to use your imagination. I enjoyed the story and found myself skimming the more detailed interludes. It did NOT take away from the story.

This author writes very visually and I was able to see the locations she is writing about.

I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1) by Carole Mortimer ~ Review by Liz Vrchota

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts #1)Nathaniel by Carole Mortimer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nathaniel is the first book in the Dragon Hearts series from Carole Mortimer. I have never read any of her work before so this was a new experience altogether for me. I jumped in with an open mind and was pretty pleased with what I found. There were a few things that I didn’t enjoy as much as I would have, and things I loved, so we will go pros/cons for this review.

Pros~ I loved the world building, I felt like I was visiting places that even though I know could never exist outside my mind, were so vividly real. This was a complete and short packaged novel, and the rest of the books are available so I don’t have to wait to grab the next one to find out what will come next. The MC’s have some awesome chemistry and it makes for some steamy yummy reads!

Cons~ I wanted to like the female MC, Chloe, and eventually I could tolerate her, but I just was so annoyed with her. I felt she was a bit overdone, and I couldn’t get passed it. The story took me awhile to get into. This was a difficult thing for me because it is a short novel. I really felt as if the pace could have just gone a bit faster for the first half of the book. Otherwise, the concept was good, storyline developed well, and the characters worked great together. I will be giving the next book in the series a try.

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts #1)
By Carole Mortimer
Rated 4 stars

This is a wonderful story. It starts off with a sassy female arguing with a arrogant guy…..about territory. Their little stunt pulled me in and as the story moved forward it just didn’t let go. Sadly i had to go to work during a pivotal point (Deryk showing up) and I couldn’t get home fast enough. The characters were…well…dragons. That is exciting in itself but they also have that side that is Full Man. Encompassing all the irritating man traits mixed with possession and keeping treasure of the dragon side. Equals a story that will never be boring. A couple times I was thinking “He did What? And then dang if Chloe didn’t sass her way right back at him.

This book has it all! Great writing and a wonderful story. Out of this world characters. It just so happens that Nathaniel has seven brothers. All single and looking for their mate. I think there will be some stories in my future. Although we haven’t met them all I can’t wait!

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts 1) By Carole Mortimer
Four Stars

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.

Dragon shifters!! A new to me author!! A new series!!

This story is full of mystery, adventure and hot sex. And there is going to be more! More mysteries, more adventures and more hot sex!

This story had me hooked from the beginning. Sassy, brave and determined is how Mortimer introduces Chloe to us. She is alone for the most part. She has acquaintances but no real true friends and no family. She out looking for a story and finds so much more.

Nathaniel is living in the Pendragon Castle with his brothers, just trying to be happy. They run a security company with each brother having a spot on the team. There are legends and folklore surrounding the brothers and their family that dates back hundreds of years. Nathaniel learns that one just might be true. Now he just needs to find the answers he is looking for.

This book is a quick and easy read. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author and about these band of brothers.

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 (Dragon Hearts Series Book #1) by Carole Mortimer – Review by Angela Hayes.

Nathaniel (Dragon Hearts #1)Nathaniel by Carole Mortimer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

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!
