A dragon stuck in his human form. A fledgling enchantress with a saucy blog. And a decades-old love spell that might have succeeded after all.

Sophie Whynot can’t watch another one of her friends get married or have a baby when her own prospects for love are dire. Scratch that, catastrophic. This trip to the Smoky Mountain village to stay with her Gran is a much needed rese

Oh boy, oh boy. I was eagerly awaiting the next series by this author (if you haven't read The Real Werewives of Alaska series, you should) and this book did not disappoint.

Sophie has come to Summerland for a fresh start. Her single status among her group of friends finally reached the oh-hell-no point and she cracked. Selling everything she owned and fleeing to her grandmother's house, she is all for reinventing herself. She has always wanted to explore her magic and her grandmother is teachin

The love of a good man, umm dragon, wait.....mate
Such a great story! These dragons are new, okay so really they are very old, come with a ton of baggage, and are desperately craving the love of their mate. Basically everything we look for in a good book. The author did not let us down, the story is engaging and will keep you interested until the very last page. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Dragons are the best!

I love a good Dragon story! This is one of the best. Good characters and a great story line. It involves a witch whose spell doesn't appear to be working. Then it does. I don't want to give it away but you have to buy this one. The series too.

Exciting story

Sometimes it takes awhile for a love spell to work.
Pretty good world building, although there is still a lot to learn about the town and mythology.
I liked the way they drew out each other’s strengths.

Loved Sophie And Tyson's Story!

Loved Sophie and Tyson's story and characters. Well written. There is magic everywhere. All the characters are great, especially Gran. Can't wait to read Monique and Chance's story.

This was an amazing story. I loved every moment of it. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Kristen Strassel has a way of drawing you into the action and the love story from the first page. I didn’t want this story to end.

Sophie has come to stay with her grandmother who is an entrantress. She wants to learn from her as well as regroup and refocus her life. She meets Tyson who is a dragon shifter. He and his thunder believe that they are cursed when a spell that her grandmother cast didn’

Addictive, hot, and magical

Thoroughly enjoyed this tale! Dragons and witches, secrets and mystery - you will be very hard pushed to put it down! Amazingly written with just the right level of detail, heat, pace and magic...definitely the beginning of an addictive series to add to my TBR :-)

A love spell gone wrong.

When is a dragon not a dragon? When he is trapped in his human body and no longer able to shift into his dragon form. The thunder of Summerland asked Nora Whynot, a young enchantress, to cast a love spell since they hadn’t found any dragon mates in hundreds of years, but something went wrong and they didn’t find love and neither could they change. Tyson is the youngest member of the thunder and is the only one who still holds hope.

Sophie moves to Summerland, Tennessee to stay with her grandmother and meets Tyson Drake.
Moving to Summerland, Tennessee to stay with her grandmother Nora had Sophie hoping for a new start and plans to start a new blog. Going to a yard sale with Nora she finds a cute dragon pin but Nora is drawn to a jeweled box but a tall hunk is also interested and Nora beats him to buy it. Sophie is unable to get the man at the yard sale out of her mind and dreams of him. Dragon shifter Tyson Drake is annoyed

A hot and adventurous beginning to a dragon shifter romance. But there is so much more than dragons. Magic is real even if most people don’t believe in it. But one botched spell may have caused these dragons the ability to shift. Now fifty years later things will change for the good or bad. I liked both of the main characters. Sophie believes in magic and wants to learn from her Gram. She is definitely an interesting character and blushes a lot when talking about her blog. And Gram is one funny ...more

Dragons, magic, love and danger what a heady combination.

Wow just wow is about the best I can say. Sophie had me laughing so hard I almost had an accident. Tyson is a man who make me believe in love at first sight. When these two get together the sparks fly. I loved it when they worked together.
Nora is just like my granny and she believed you could do anything with the right incentives.
Good reading!

Classic romantic love story with a twist of magic

A love spell gone wrong? Or so Tyson Drake and his fellow dragons thought? Until Sophie Whynot came along and triggered the love spell.
He was the only dragon who didn't stop believing in the spell. She was the one who always believed in magic. Finding each other was fate. Off to read the next book in the series. Happy writing.

A Dragon and an Enchantress

Gran cast a spell on the Dragon thunder sat their request. They were closing their power. Her granddaughter came to live with her so she could learn magic. It seems the spell worked after a lol as she met Tyson and they were drawn together. Various twists and turns make for an interesting story.

Good shifter romance

I liked the story. This is my second time reading it.

Who doesn't want to discover that, by being true to yourself, you find something beyond your wildest dreams? Sophie has a breakdown, sells everything, and goes to live with Gran, the only one who's believed in her. She discovers she has magic, the hottest guy ever is a dragon, and he's attracted to her.

Character development is adequate; Sophie has feelings of inadequacy as a woman and as an enchantress, Tyson isn't sure h

An intriguing mythology...

A witch’s coming of age and a dragon’s reawakening, what could be better. A big baddie in the midst of course. Sophie and Tyson have an instant attraction. They should be enemies but can’t stay away from each other. Sophie’s Gran is a hoot, and Tyson’s dragon brothers add to the already palpable angst. Overall a great paranormal read.

A start

You couldn't ask for a better start. For these brothers. Just because they need a little help. In the magic area. Doesn't mean it can't be done. Oh and did I mention. They are all hot. Happy reading

It was an ok read, but it read like chunks had been taken out to make it a certain length. There were gaps in the story, and information that it seemed assumed you had but hadn't been presented.

Ok over all. Just hard to enjoy with the gaps.

Totally Awesome!

I absolutely love the mixture of dragons and magic. The first book in this series was a stunner for me. Sophie and Tyson literally shoot sparks off each other when they touch. So romantic and compelling.

Kristen Strassel is far cooler than she’ll make herself sound in this bio. She enjoys spending time with the voices in her head—nudging the characters toward those bad decisions and a happily ever after. When she’s not writing, she’s often still in the land of make-believe—doing makeup for film and television. And when she’s not doing any of that, she enjoys making her house look like a Pinterest ...more
