While I enjoyed Ms. Castle's Dark Dynasty Series, this novelette was just MEH read. Big part of it was MY FAULT -- I forgot that Nocturne was one of the sensual (read: erotic) stories of Harlequin. More sex less romance. I got bored quickly and started skimming.

But on another hand, what I noticed from her Dark Dynasty book, Ms. Castle didn't write action part very well. Again, I thought the action part here ((view spoiler)) was a let down.

At least
This was an excellent story. I was thoroughly engulfed by the story. For a short story it was very fleshed out. I am going to have to look for more of this author's books.

2 stars... Great idea but poorly executed.

Let me just begin by saying that I have NEVER read or heard of a dragon book that is good. Which sucks because I think the concept of were-dragons is awesome. Taming The Dragon started out great. You've got the arrogant dragon and the sassy and headstrong human. In their first encounter, sparks fly. I loved how smoke came out of Kaden (the dragon) at times along with the lengthening of his incisors. I thought it was a very simple yet easy to enjoy book
This was an enjoyable story. I liked this story and thought it was pretty good, including a little bit of a plot to bring some interest and some hot sex scenes (which makes any story better). I would have given it a 3.5 stars if possible but liked it enough to bump it up to 4 rather than down to 3. I actually listened to the audio version of this story and I wasn't thrilled with the way the narrator sounded when doing the hero's voice but it wasn't bad enough to ruin it. If you read the story th ...more

Originally rated 1 Star but thought it was probably too low. Character development was lacking and plot was sort "why". I really don't like novellas because they are so short. I haven't read anything else dealing with the characters or plot so I found pointless and I ask the question why. Sure more to follow but this isn't ready for prime time.
4.5 Stars. Public Library 9/20/14. Nice short adult story about dragons, magic, and witches. Tess wanders into a small mysterious shop where she is offered a job deliver a necklace. A simple delivery turns into a sudden but complicated love when she meets Kaden.
Fun, short book that I was able to read during my lunch break. I love dragons and want a dragon necklace of my own now! ;)

Loved it! I'm at a loss for which set of her characters I like best...werewolves, vampire shifters, or dragons!
