Do you remember when you were young...

and you'd get ready for bed and there you'd be curled up under the covers all snuggly warm with your favorite toy waiting for a bedtime story...maybe, it's a story about kings and queens, fairies, dwarves, elves, a circus filled with lions, tigers and elephants or maybe it's a story with mystical creatures unicorns, griffins, a phoenix...dragons?

Whatever, the story as children it was a special time...a time filled with the magic of going to a far away l

This is the fourth book in the series I've read (I missed book #4) and I enjoy my time with this gentle, low steam, old-school romance series. It's fantasy, an alt-historical world, with not much action - it's more character driven. There's generally a mystery of some sort in each book as well, and some of the MCs have a magical Talent, the title gives you this particular one.

The books in this series can be a bit overly long in description of places or events but it's part of this author's world

The Dragon's Devotion (ARC) was graciously provided to me by IndiGo Marketing & Design for an honest review.

"To Follow One's Heart.."

Stunning and majestic beauty, heart-warming love, and bone-deep devotion that supercedes everything else, are just some of the reasons why I am still glowing after having just read a new book. I absolutely loved, The Dragon's Devotion, by Antonia Aquilante. Throughout its reading, I felt a multitude of emotions. I felt sadness, pride, giddiness, happiness, sho

I picked this book based solely on the fact that I read one of the previous books in series. While I wasn't thrilled with that oneThe Sorcerer's Guardian , it was interesting enough for me to read this one.
I haven't read the blurb before diving right in (I got the book practically immediately after asking)
so I was surprised to find out that Corentin, one of main characters was a dragon. He is hiding his nature while travelling and now he is visiting kingdom of Tournai, where he presents himself

I was worried going into this because I'm not a huge fan of fantasy. I don't tend to enjoy the world building, and often find the time it takes for the story to start tedious. I found a little of that true here, more in just the sheer number of characters than the world building, but again that's me, not the story. And, had i read the first books in the series i would have known a number of the characters already

I loved Bastien and Corentin together. I loved Corentin's dragon, and that he could

I can't remember if the rest of the series was as much of a slow burn as this one. It seemed like the attraction was instant, but the development of the relationship physically was really slow. I liked the story how it was. The characters were great, the story too, my only issue is, well I guess the story in relation to the title. I read the blurb. Fine. What gets me though is that I almost expected the story to focus on Corentin and his secret as a dragon, his people and Bastien a lot more than ...more

A beautifully written fantasy romance.

This is a fifth book in a series, but it could be read as a standalone. I had no trouble understanding the workings of this world, and we do get to meet a lot of secondary characters that feature in previous books.
The story itself is very slow-paced, almost leisurely, but it flows nicely, and doesn't lag. The romance is very sweet and beautiful, and the characters are well-rounded and fleshed out. I would have liked for the action to be a little more promi

Murder investigation with magic added

An Earl and a ruling Prince find parents were murdered and investigation begins. Earls romance with Dragon shifter complicates things. Well written and proofread. But if you like intelligent fantasy with low body count and gay romance. HEA

Antonia draws you back into Tournai and you will definitely want to go. Even if you haven't read all the books in this series, you can still pick up the story. Each love story she tells is as compelling as the last--and this time, dragons!! ...more

I’m a fan of this series and this world that Antonia Aquilante builds in a fantastical country named Tournai. From the first book to this one, I have been introduced to a magical world where people have talents such as magic or the ability to turn into an animal. So far we have only seen large cats and, of course, I adored being a witness to all of it. We’ve met Corentin from Etan and Tristan’s book and know a bit about him but we don’t know everything. When Master Savarin decides to qu

This is the continuation of a lovely series. The love is these books is the sweet heartwarming kind that makes you say aww. Usually historical settings are somewhat darker and have a more oppressive atmosphere but this series is the exception. I’d love to live in Tournai with its magic and friendly inhabitants. This series is definitely a great comfort read and this book is par for the course.

Bastien is an earl and he is drowning under the weight of his duties and obligations. Corentin also has

Her stories have changed over the years, but one thing has remained consistent - they all end in happily ever after.
