When Time Stops
Dragon Shifter Surprise Pregnancy Romance
by Anya Nowlan
Yes, Anya Nowlan books are always awesome and compelling page turner, it's a excellent read that will have you crying and laughing out loud. And yes, the book is full of action, romance and scouring hot scenes. But the best part about the book is the interactions between Aeon and Isobel, you will enjoy all of their encounters. I enjoyed Isobel character she's so strong, witty and intelligence. Aeon is very protect

Aug 28, 2016 rated it did not like it
The story totally lacks sense, characters are shallow, and let's not start on plot (holes like a fishing net, anyone?). Stupid doesn't cover it.
Note that the 400 pages on the GR description are in my opinion false, it takes a couple of hours to read. I think it barely reaches the 200.

An enjoyable read. There were few typos but not that many to be a problem. My only nitpick is that there is a lot of internal musings but the dialogue is rather limited.

Few editing errors buy otherwise a decent story.

I reviewed this book in an exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I have read by Anya Nowlan and Wow, she has definitely gone onto my favourite author list, after reading this I need to get her other books now!!!

I loved this book, so much so that I couldn't put it down until I finished it, just kept obsessively tuning pages but was then gutted when it finished as I wanted to read more and more into this world! The way this was written was just so spellbindin

Sticking Together!!!

Aeon Prevoir has been the Alpha of his family for years, the last line of time dragons, the guardian of all they stand for. He was happy the way he lived his life but his younger siblings had other ideas. He was forced into a year break which he didn't want to.

Isobel Evans was left at the alter by a man her family thought was a "good boy". But she knew he wasn't, she did the only thing she could while standing in the bridal dressing room with her mom and bridesmaids. She ran a

I wasn't sure I would enjoy this book because dragon shifters are not my favorite. I have many preconceived ideas about them and often writers go in another direction.
I'm pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the look at dragon traditions and how they fit into the 21t century.

Well with the little taster you see how protective Aeon is and yeah kinda hot. He is also the Alpha amongst the dragon shifters. Isobel just missed marrying a cheating douchebag and rode off  in the sunset with her bestie. Well was driven away in a limo :)
Both Aeon and Isobel wasn't expecting finding each other and having a well hot  sex all night. But it did and all things changed for them both. Aeon is definitely HOT!!!!!!

This was a great book. I love reading about dragons and I also love Anya Nowlan's books. Aeon, being the alpha of the time dragons, has guarded the family's hoard for 10 years so he was taken by surprise when his two brothers outfoxed him and forced him to take a year off. Isobel was actually relieved when Joshua dumped her on her wedding day. She didn't like him any more and wanted nothing more to do with him. She is enjoying what would have been her honeymoon with her best friend Allison. She ...more

I really liked this version of dragon lore. This story gives us some insight into how the dragons handle family business and interaction with each different clan. Alpha Time Dragon, Aeon Prevoir, is content guarding the family fortune while his younger brothers handle supervisory duties for their corporations around the world. When he is outwitted by his brothers and forced to switch positions with them for one year he is not a happy camper. Isobel Evans, after being left at the alter by her che ...more

Jilted and strangely relieved bride Isobel Evans runs from the church and takes her best friend to her "honeymoon"Villa in Europe. Now, out from under the pressure she can rediscover herself. A night out to a posh nightclub is just what she needs. A sexy hook up even better.

This is a really steamy dragon romance that will pull you right from the beginning. Right at the beginning Isobel gets left at the alter and figures out she is more relieved that upset that her ex did not show for their wedding. She goes on their 'honeymoon' with her best friend instead and meets Aeon. The connection between the two is almost instantly hot even though they are both not looking for a 'hook-up'. Even after Isobel and Aeon spend the night together neither is quite willing to admit ...more

Oh wow, this is full of action, action, action. From start to finish. I have read one dragon shifter story before but this is in a league of its own.
When Isobel Evans is jilted on her wedding day, the last thing she thinks will ever happen is to meet a handsome stranger that will change her life forever. His name is Aeon Prevoir, and there is something different about him. After one hot encounter, Isobel is in peril

This was a good story. It could have been better with a stronger heroine. Isobel was left at the altar by her fiancee. He was a lying, cheating scumbag. She's suppose to be a lawyer but her temperament at times was so cowardly.
She decides to not let her honeymoon go to waste and takes her best friend with her to France. She meets Aeon at his club.
Next she's kidnapped by dragons and made queen of their tournament. Winner gets her. Basically Aeon and others compete for her.

A short read that most definitely isn't 400 pages long. Sadly it also wasn't really worth the couple of hours I invested in it either. Not exactly bad, but there were a fair few grammatical mistakes, the plot was boring and uninspired, and the romance elements could have been ripped directly from any number of other shifter PNR books without anyone noticing.

I'm sure this will appeal to some readers, especially if you're just after a quick and easy read or are new to PNR, but I often

I loved reading about Aeon and Isobel. This was a love story but it had so much more than that. I was expecting them to just be together with maybe her ex Joshua showing up but instead she got kidnapped. There were to be dragon challenges and she was the prize for the winner, turns out that was her ex's fault. Aeon vowed to win her even though he didn't condone what was happening. I won't thin the story but it is a must read. I just can't wait to see what Aeon's brothers Hex and

I enjoyed this well written dragon shifter story. Anya Nowlan has written a very different shifter story. It contains rejection, hope, emotional growth, kidnapping, brotherhood, fighting, betrayal and romance. Aeon is a Time Dragon and Isobel is human.While visiting France, Isobel has been kidnapped by dragons for what reason? Aeon having met Isobel before must now save her? Will he win the tournament and claim his prize? This story is a must read at 5 stars.

After 1 night together she is kidnapped and put as a prize to be won by single dragon shifters. Aeon is tricked into a year away from the family hoard but his encounter with the sexy Isobel makes him want more but now he must save her life.

Loved it! Never imagined time dragons or many of the others mentioned in this book. The idea of a yearly battle to determine who gets to guard the hoard is a hoot! I am in awe of Anya's creative mind. Aeon seems like a sweetheart and i enjoyed Isobel as well. The friendmoon she ran off on after the mishap of a wedding is a great idea. I could only dream of meeting a hot dragon at the dance club, yum.

When Time Stops

Aeon is a dragon shifter. Isobel is deserted by her fiancé, Joshua, at the wedding. She goes to Europe on her honeymoon trip with her best friend Allie. She meets Aeon at a nightclub his family owns. She is kidnapped for the Dragon Tournament. When Aeon finds out she is the prize he enters the tournament believing it is his fault she was kidnapped. Exciting and fun to read with all kinds of twists and turns.

Another great story, which I hope will be/is the beginning of a new series! A tale of dragon shifters with some new twists. Not into spoilers or "book reports," but I will say this story is definitely worth your time to read. Well written, fast paced, exciting, with good character development. What more can you ask for?

This was such a Great book. It was short, but very enjoyable. If you like dragons and romance then it's a must book. Loved the was these shifters always want to believe that it can't be love, but it always is. This book has dragons slowing time, doing fog, and so on.... I've never read a book that dragons have powers like this. VERY ENJOYABLE BOOK!!! : )

I'm very picky about what I give out 5 stars to but this book is worth it. I loved the concept. The characters were great. It had a good pace to it. I really like this world the author created. I hope this is going to be a series. I would love to read more about the other brothers. Good story I highly recommend it.

I truly enjoyed this new book When Time Stops! Isobel and Aeon were great characters who got to know one another even in the worst of times for them. The storyline was fast paced and kept you guessing at whom all was involved and what was going to be the outcome. I enjoy Anya Nowlan's book and anyone would like this book.
