This is a short story set after Kinked. It is a stand-alone so none of the happenings have much of an impact on the rest of the series although it is wise to have at least an inkling of what is going on after book one as there will be spoilers.
This is an absolutely adorable snippet of family life for Dragos, Pia and Liam. I adored seeing Dragos as both a father and a husband in this holiday tale. He has a calm and level head but woe betide those who mess with his family. In this, we start to see how he can use those years as being head of the Wyr to protect those that he loves. It should have been a bit creepy but instead it was ridiculously sexy. Pia is still adjusting to life as wife of the ruler of the Wyr and we see her try to be a mother to a baby dragon alongside trying to show Dragos how to share his life. I loved Pia in the first book and she doesn’t disappoint here either. The way she manipulates Dragos into taking a holiday made me laugh so hard... I need more Pia books please.
The best thing about this book is the scenes from Liam’s POV for me. I liked seeing the baby dragon discover his powers and get into lots of trouble because of them! I feel Liam will be an interesting character to see grow up throughout the series; who knows what he will get up to in his teenaged years!
Overall, this was a cute and fun addition to a series that is autobuy for me. If you want to see more stompy Dragos, sassy Pia and some cute baby dragon, pick this one up on release day.(less)

After losing her partner to an incident on the job, she can’t decide whether or not she can trust her own instincts to keep her safe. When she stumbles back upon a book of her Mothers that her Father sold, she finds herself sucked into a world of fantasy and legend. The book is an alternative version of Red Riding Hood which sees Red becomes a victim of the Wolfs hypnotic powers and forced to do his bidding. Unfortunately, the book is more real than anyone could have imagined and she ends up being sucked into a world of myth and legend. Dayn is one of the Royal House of Vampires, cursed to be a Wolfyn. Banished to the Wolfyn realm, he has been hiding amongst a pack, concealing his true nature from them so they don’t kill him. When he meets Reda sparks begin to fly. He looks exactly like the woodsman from the book and he thinks she is the person he has been waiting for to lead him back home. Unfortunately, her entry into the world alerts an evil witch to his whereabouts. Will they ever survive to reunite with his family?
I liked this book more than the other two, but unfortunately, I think you have to read the other two for this to make sense. I liked the concept of this world of Myth and Legend….it felt like a cross between Willow and the Labyrinth. This one seems to progress a little smoother than the others, and I felt I could settle and really try to get into this story. I don’t want to make this a long review, as I am aware people won’t want spoilers for book one and two. The Premise of the story is simple. There was once a family of Vampires who ruled over a land. Then the evil Sorcerer came and killed the King and Queen and cursed all their children. In this book, we meet the second son Dayn.
Dayn was nice as a leading man. Brooding, tortured and sexy, he checked the majority of my “perfect hero” boxes. He tricked one of the packs strongest females into providing him with the necessary sexual energy and blood. I didn’t particularly like that he could do that, but I knew that it was a necessary evil. When he meets Reda he becomes all alpha territorial sexy hero. The chemistry is pretty sizzling between the two of them and the sex scenes were nice and steamy. To be honest these scenes were the ones that made the book for me.
Reda was a bit of an odd character to warm to. I understood why she was so unsure of herself, even bordering on a little whiny at times, but it did not make for an interesting character. Once she meets Dayn, she lets go a little and starts to show some strength of character. Then she reverts back and it started to bug me slightly. Erratic characters have never been my favourite, and she went back and forward like a yo-yo. I don’t mind minor setbacks, but this was like she had never developed in the first place and then all of a sudden was fine again. By the end she was conveniently a likeable character, but to be honest it was all a little too convenient.
Overall, a very sexy fairy-tale that benefits from a sexy hero and some very hot sex scenes. True, the heroine annoyed me but I enjoyed it enough to want to read the next instalment. (less)
