Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock::
I give this book 4fangs...
I loved this story. It has a lost elf, a found dragon, magic, and a family longed for.
The only thing I really didn’t like about this story is it started out too fast. There was absolutely no lead up to the action. There was no history about why Mia was trapped on earth, how Magnus came to her, or how Kort followed him there. It just started out oh wow dragons are real and we have to have sex to get home to Chalvare

A world ruled by the King and Queen with flying dragons and magic, this story has all the makings of a fairy tale; however, Chalvaren Rising is not your typical fairytale. This world in made up of elves. The dragons’ powers are of the elements of their origin, Earth, wind, fire, and water.  Deities worshipped are “the gods” and Varick. Auras tell the true intentions of all who live in Chalvaren, but only to the elves gifted with the ability to see them.

The adventure begins when Lucan, the kingdo

Chalvaren Rising is an epically brilliant novel that expands on Mia's past, present and future which Paula Millhouse began telling in her exciting prequel Dragonstone. With Magnus the dragon, now hatched and bonded to Mia the two need to work together to strengthen their connection in order to bring the prophesy into full force. But working together is harder than they could have forseen, with many trials and hardships ahead of them that they need to overcome. This does not mean that they don't ...more

Chalvaren Rising by Paula Millhouse

Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the Kingdom of Chalvaren for a hiding place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth…and their war.
It was the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to be

Having read Dragonstone, the prequel to Chalvaren Rising, I was all ready to dig into this book and fall in love again with these characters.

The beginning of Chalvaren Rising was superb, I couldn't stop reading, but it wasn't until I got to all the doubts that Mia had, and the highhandedness of Kort that I found myself rolling my eyes in frustration. I understood that any relationshi

Different worlds, dragons, elves, evil yet misguided women - what more could you ask for? Now, this is the first 'full' book in the Kingdom of Chalvaren series, although there is the novella in which our two main characters meet. What made this book interesting for me is that they were already 'together' right at the start. So although I knew that things had moved quickly in the prequel, it actually made for fantastic reading as the two of them got to know each other and explored their feelings ...more

I was given an advanced reader copy for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this story. I loved that Mia and Kort’s love builds throughout the story. They are believable characters that have to fight their inner demons along with trying to stop an evil elf from destroying Chalvaren.
Isa is the villain and she is pure evil with real motivation. I loved being in her demented mind.
My favorite was Magnus the dragon who is sensitive and funny. He’s a wonderful character that made we want a dragon of my

I really enjoyed this story. I love that the relationship builds throughout the story and doesn’t just throw it in your face, like a lot of romances lately. The characters are also believable, which I enjoyed.

This story pulled me in and I felt I was right there with them the entire time, and I was on the edge of my seat quite often. This is certainly a page turner!

Overall Chalvaren Rising is a wonderfully written love story with action and

A wonderfully written and steamy fantasy romance!

I'm not normally a fantasy reader, but this book drew me in with the excellent writing. Mia and Kort have a loving and respectful relationship. It's also intensely HOT. I loved that the sex scenes were sensual and not crude or crass:

"The erotic huskiness of his voice triggered something primal in her exhausted mind. There was only this, only this handsome, hulking man hovering naked in front of and above her, working her into a frenzy of emotion

Dragons and elves is a book I must read. This dragon talks and made me laugh so much. This is a book, I will read again. I really enjoy this written and steamy fantasy romance. The action in this book never stops. It is full of twists. There are characters the readers will think they know and you will be talking to your book. I found it entertaining, with mystery and magic. Yes, there is black magic too. The villain has a lot motivation and I loves her mind. This is a read for people who love fa ...more

I really enjoyed this second story! Mia and Kort are back with of course DRAGONS!!! I really did like that Mia was learning what she can do and a lot about where she is now plus there's a hot prince. However there was a little too much filler and there where times I found myself scanning, not always but once or twice for sure. Overall a little verbose but fun.

I received a free copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

If you like a fantasy world, elves, and dragons, give this one a try. But start with the short story, Dragonstone, first. A fun story in itself, and it might help ease a little confusion at the beginning of this book.

4.5 Stars.
This book picks up right after the short prequel, DRAGONSTONE, and I highly recommend reading the one first because the action kicks off right after this one.

The first half of the book focuses on Mia and Kort's developing relationship and Mia adjusting to life on Chalvaren. Rich world building and smexy passion abound.

But before Mia and Kort can further explore their newfound bond, disaster strikes the kingdom, in the form of Mia's evil wizard aunt, Isa. She was a very compelling vill
