Description

Dragons are coldblooded things. Prone to violence and doused in magic.

He’s the Protector of his kind, heir to a cursed throne. She’s the one regret that’s stung his heart for nearly two decades. Olivia Probst. His family has called him home to fix his brother, but he’s only there for her. If she’ll have him.

Divorced. Career in the tank. Forced to return to her hometown of Roanoke, Virginia to start over. To say Livi’s life could be better would be an understatement. Then he pays a her late night visit, and her life is turned upside down. Smoking hot and dangerous as hell, Riley Brandt still warms her insides.

His Fire may be just what her Zauberin needs to break a spell woven long ago.

If they can navigate Riley’s overbearing family, and he can help stop a serial killer before his family secrets are exposed, they might stand a chance.

The Zauberin and the Dragon is a dark, paranormal romance, filled with an abundance of slow burning heat, humor and page-turning suspense.

Dragons are coldblooded things. Prone to violence and doused in magic.

He’s the Protector of his kind, heir to a cursed throne. She’s the one regret that’s stung his heart for nearly two decades...

I actually loved this book! The first chapter/beginning was horrible and I almost stopped but I’m glad I kept reading to the part about the actual characters because I really enjoyed it. This book was easy to read, fast paced, and had likable characters. I would definitely read more from this author in the future.

This story is darling, very quick to read and very enjoyable. I liked the characters, they are relatable, they have good chemistry and are real in their emotions. The annoying characters, well, we all probably know people like them, and they were fleshed out well, too. What really made this tale, for me, was the appropriate use of scriptures in the lives of the hero and heroine. Overall, a story to cherish!.

This was a little slow to hook me, but once I got to know Olivia and Riley I was in there.

Character-wise Olivia is fun and outgoing. Riley is strong, commanding and yummy.

In my opinion, the history of the dragons would have been better in a flash-back type scene after meeting the main characters of this book.

Riley is a talented man, he has powers that are scary and some that we all wish our hubby's had 🔥😀.

"They moved together, two oceans
overlapping, in time with each other’s
heartbeat, both in sync, thumping as
one in their chests."

There's romance and suspense in this book along with steam. ❤️

I'd definitely read another in this series.

"For anyone who ever doubts themselves and deals with imposter syndrome: catch your stars, folks. Trust me, you'll never regret it" With a book dedication like that, you KNOW this story is going to be amazing.

Excerpt of Book Description: "Dragons are coldblooded things. Prone to violence and doused in magic.
He’s the Protector of his kind, heir to a cursed throne. She’s the one regret that’s stung his heart for nearly two decades. Olivia Probst. His family has called him home to fix his brother, but he’s only there for her. If she’ll have him."
The blurb definitely kept my attention after the word "Dragon" in the title caught my eye. I enjoy stories with dragons in them (except for GOT), particularly stories where the dragon isn't the villain or a brief feature. This book sounded promising with mentions of love, adventure, and some crime fighting, so I was quick to request it.

Reading Experience: I started reading on the NetGalley app, but quickly switched to my Kindle app (purely ended up being a preference issue). I did have some formatting issues with the book on my kindle (unsure if the same issues would be present on the NetGalley app). It was mainly just randomly blank pages (between chapters, thankfully not during one), or a new chapter starting on the same page as the last chapter, or weird spacing. It's mostly a file issue rather than something wrong with the story; however, the formatting issue broke me away from the story.

Plot and Likability of Characters: I enjoyed the plot a lot. The dual perspectives allows the reader to get a better understanding of the FMC and MMC's past. The book begins with a prologue that is key to the story, but honestly I was a little confused by it. It connected to later on in the book and explained everything, but it was confusing and a little difficult to get through. It lost half a star for me in the sense that I felt there could've been more to it. Maybe a deeper explanation as to what a Zauberin is, the history of them, and further exploration of their powers. It felt almost forgotten in relation to the rest of the story. The spice? I was NOT expecting, but boy did I enjoy it.

Overall, I truly enjoyed the book and characters. If there is a sequel, I'll absolutely read it!

Since I love dragons I found it only fitting to read a novel based on dragons. I found this novel thoroughly amusing and entertaining. I would certainly highly recommend it to friends and family.

Cant wait for the sequel! I need to know more... A brilliant start to a series. A witch, a dragon and a serial killer, what more could you ask for.... Oh yes, a smouldering slow burn. It doesn't get better than this.
