This book was a breath of fresh air. I enjoy paranormal novels but I love the ones with a twist, something inventive that can surprise me. I expected this to be a classic shifter romance with some angst, instant romance, bad guys or comical situations. But the author shattered my expectations with the skill of a ninja assassin.

Everybody has heard or read about dragons and their treasure hoards but the author explored this myth creatively and linked it to all aspects of a dragon shifters life. I

I received this book at the Goodreads Lovers of Paranormal group for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The begging was a little bit boring, it didn't have a good twist.
But how I go with the book and the story it becomes more and more interesting.
I didn't like so much the character of Elaina, but Alex and Elaina together are really great and the love between those two is just... *sign*
And it's really funny, and also sad, that Elaina thinks she doesn't love Alex because "Dragons cannot

Well this was a different read for me I must confess. I do love reading paranormal stories and dragons are always such fun but the idea of the heroine Elaina starving without adding to her hoard took me completely by surprise. Then of course there's the unusual way she acquires her precious beauties and don't get me started on why her appearance is the way it is! Yes a completely fresh approach by this new to me author and I found myself flipping the pages very quickly.
Now anyone who knows me fu

Treasured Claim is the first full-length Mythos Legacy tale, and it is intriguing. Elaina Drake is confident her mortal disguise is impenetrable, and it enables her to eke out a miserable existence as far away from her homicidal father as she can get, feeding her dragonish physiology by acquiring gems and jewellery that others have lost. Her first major scam goes horribly wrong when she realises that Alex Wyatt can see her as she truly is. The only humans with the innate ability to see dragons, ...more

Wow - I do not typically finish a novel in under 20 hours... Great characters, fun premise, very enjoyable romance plot. I'm looking forward to reading the next mythos legacy novel when it releases in August :)

I liked the 3D secondary characters and the effect they had on Elaina as well as what they revealed about their boss, Alex's, personality - James the driver, George (I hope you get a tall dark and handsome one, George! I loved loved the climax - how all the mysteries from early on were rev

Let me start by saying this was not at all what I was expecting, it was better. I was expecting the usual shifter romance, hot guy/girl with animal urges, lots of incredible sex, a bit of angst along the way and a happy ending. That's not a bad thing as I enjoy quite a few shifter romance books.

This book genuinely gripped me in the first few pages. The description of the dragon was superb, from the many colours in her hair to her shimmering skin that only Alex could see. The chemistry between Al

This was my first dragon-shifter story and I really enjoyed it.

Elaina has chosen to live away from other dragons and tries to blend in with humans. She needs jewels and precious metals to survive as this is her only sustenance. She is always on the look out for new treasures to add to her hoard but finds her power is dwindling so must resort to stealing to get the power she needs to keep going. She decides to attend a fund raiser being held by millionaire, Alex Wyatt, since there will be many we

Loved the dragon-knight pairing. The Mythos world is fascinating and Alex and Eliana were intriguing characters who truly deserved their HEA. Great book!

Elaina is a wonderful heroine. She has principles she sticks to, and tries to do her best for and by Alex.
The world she inhabits is richly detailed, and the way dragons depend on their treasure is pretty cool.
Plenty of angst here, which I loved.

A solid 4.2 out of 5 stars for this well-written book. I debated nudging it to 4.5 just because the author is a great person who has personally helped me SO MUCH with my own writing, but I decided I had to be true to my gut. Ii my opinion, it isn't quite a five-star read.
The first half of the book kept me turning pages like a mad-woman. I loved the characters and their hang-ups were as original as their individual plights. Since I'm not an erotic reader, I will say that I was disappointed to see

The storyline intrigued me plus I do so love to read about dragons in the paranormal. The setting added a different flavor because it is modern day which was intriguing. Elaina was a surprise because I honestly expected a male dragon to come into the picture first but she is young compared to years in dragon. Right away though she catches the eye of one Alexander who was very important in Chicago's corporate world. He also seems to be the only one that can not be fooled by what the others cannot ...more

So what genre is Treasured Claim? Romance, of course, with paranormal (a dragon who passes as a human woman) and a bit of erotic (human males and dragon females are indeed capable of doing it with feeling.) I'd claim for it two other sub-genres: It is certainly in the "creative and well crafted" genre and I put it in the "strong woman or woman with agency" genre.

I sample many more books than I buy, as I'm sure you do. I seek something different, something that will catch my attention and satisfy

I haven't read the other books in this series and it didn't hinder my understand at all. Although it did make me curious about the other books. Once I have time to do a binge read, I'm getting the other books.

Now, about this book. A dragon-shifter, although not your usual kind. It was refreshing to have the woman as the shifter and the man being completely clueless about this new world. I loved the two of them together, especially since she didn't put up with any of his shit. Hell, she's a drago

I loved the whole lore of this book. The aspects borrowed from dragon legends were so well integrated and intriguing. Most of the dragon shifter books I've read have been male dragons so this stands out among dragon shifters. The plot is fast-paced and reads as much like an adventure UF as a romance. If you like your female leads feisty, this is the book for you. All around just a fascinating read that will stick with you and delves deeper into dragon legends than any other book I've found so fa ...more

This book surprised me. I was expecting it to be typical shifter romance but it wasn't. It gripped me from the beginning. The description of the Elaina's dragon side was exceptional and also very different to others that I had previously read. The romance between Elaina and Alex is very interesting. It moves in unexpected directions as does the rest of the story. I loved it and wished that there was another book that followed Alex and Elaina's journey. I can't wait to read the other books in the ...more

Alex and Elaina are a unique take on a dragon shifter and billionaire love story. Alex doesn't want to turn out like his father and that's molded him into a redeemable filthy rich guy. Elaina is hiding from her father and we learn the tragic story of her past and how it affects her ability to fall for Alex. Both characters have fears and insecurities that prevent them from moving forward with the feelings, even driving them apart. The writing is solid and the story is one that paranormal romance ...more
