A Slow Burn

Two unlikely mates find themselves suddenly tangled together on one magical night.
Loved it! I really enjoyed the characters and how they both found something unexpected in each other. It’s a slow burn romance and I can’t wait to learn more about the characters as well as the huge mysterious case that’s still ongoing.

Soon, however, they must band together to help find Dai’s missing sister. This might even connect to his case.

A Slow Burn is an interesting story about Remington and Dai's rise to being the new kind and queen of Dragons.
I think one thing this story really lacked, at least for me, was a bit more history into the Dragons and why they pick kings and queens when they do, especially since the previous ones are still living.

As children Remi and Dai always competed in everything they did, with Remi always seeming to come out the winner. Now as adults Dai is still a little bitter about the lack of effort Remi

I don't normally read books of this genre so it was going outside the box for me when I chose to read it. Boy am I glad I did! What a GREAT story! It grabbed my attention right away and kept it until the very last page. I am eager to start book 2! Remi and Dai, even though semi forced into their new roles of King and Queen, seem to be on the road to easily falling into their new paths with each other. Both characters show strength towards the other when needed. While any type of major romantic s ...more

A fiery start to this exciting new series.
Remington and Dai were fierce competitors at school with Remi usually coming out on top, so old hostilities are present when they attend a Beltane festival. As dragon shifters, this gathering is to choose the next king and queen, something neither of them want, but you can’t mess with fate. Remi doesn’t have time to go to festivals with a serial killer in the loose and as a lead detective he is trying to find the person killing dragon shifters. Remi and

A Slow Burn is the first in a fantastic new series by Terri A. Wilson. This is a paranormal romantic suspense that had me flipping pages so fast I confused my kindle. Dai and Remi are childhood rivals thrown together as adults and neither is thrilled with the idea. Time has changed them both and childhood grievances can be put aside. Dai needs to finish her studies and Remi has a murderer to catch. Can they do their duties to family, dragonkind, society and themselves?

Fantastic, but with a cliffhanger.

The story starts off fast and exciting and just gets better. Rem and Dai grew up together and were always competing. Now all grown up, they must appear with scores of other eligible, unmated dragons for a ceremony to choose the new Dragon King and Queen. To further complicate things, Remi is investigating a serial murder where all the victims are young dragons. Plus Sam's little sister is missing. This is a whirlwind of emotions and intrigue with no clue what it

This is a fantastic story! It is full of mystery, drama and suspense. It is original and unique. It pulls you in from the beginning. The characters are beautifully developed and I loved their personalities. I did feel the ending felt rushed or just not gave the indication that it was the end of book one. It just ended and I am sitting there going wait did I miss something. Otherwise, I am excited to read the second book in the series.

Fated destiny
Wow! This book was so good! It really is a slow burn, there is a cliffhanger, well I hope it is anyway. I can’t imagine going on to another couple without seeing what happens with these two. That’s not to say that there weren’t some amazing characters in this book that I would love to see have their own love stories. This book seems to be the perfect setup for a long running series. I can’t wait to read the next book and see where the author’s muse takes her. Hopefully to a HEA for

A Slow Burn – Dragon Royalty by Terri A. Wilson is a story about two dragons who are fated to be together. This book starts of by introducing the two main characters, who are the dragons Remington Montgomery and Dai Ito. This pair has known each other from childhood and neither one wants to be chosen for the honor bestowed upon one couple each generation. The story is interesting and really had my attention but it ends with several cliffhangers.

Dai and Remy were arc enemies of sorts growing up. But when they have to fly to Scotland for a grand mating ceremony the unexpected happens. Will Dai reveal to her parents about her dropping out of law school to enter culinary school? Will Remy solve the dragon murders? How will the new queen and king make it in this new journey?

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world that was created.
The descriptions of the characters and their feelings are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind.
Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer.

I only have one real complaint about this book - that it ends on a cliffhanger!!! I absolutely fell in love with Remi and Dai from the start.

Dragon shifter stories that include romance and intrigue are great to read. Dai and Remington have a love hate relationship but they are going to have to put that aside. Dai’s sister was taken and now it’s up to the new Dragon Queen Dai and Dragon King Remington to find her before its too late.
