Really liked it!!

The chemistry between Sven and Colette was amazing!! You could feel their attraction almost from the start. Although Colette at times got on my nerves I admired her bravery and strength. Sven is so sexy and although he’s an alpha he’s sweet and caring too.

I highly recommend this book if you like Fantasy Romance. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

There are some (sub)genres I can't resist reading and the fantasy romance where the hero is a savage/barbarian is high on that list. The thing that convinced me to read this book was that the heroine Colette was fierce and stood up for herself. She definitely made things difficult for Sven, she made him regret that he kidnapped her in the beginning. The banter was great between them, I also really enjoyed seeing them fall for each other.

I really enjoyed this novella and I can't wait to read more by Denali Day. Her way with words kept me intrigued and flipping pages to see what happens next.

Though it was novella length, this story is packed full of adventure and action, enough to have you cheering them on one page and laughing at their banter the next.

I can't wait to read the next story, Hollen the Soulless. You will meet that character in Sven's story...but I don't want to give anything away!

Overall, I really loved reading

A Perfect 5 Stars

Writing 5 Stars - Whoa ... Where did Denali Day come from?? Historical fiction | fantasy | magical realism folks rejoice, because have I got a fresh, new author for y’all to stalk. This woman must have been hiding away somewhere, quietly perfecting her craft, because she has busted onto the scene with a near perfect debut. Did I mention you can get it for free? Hmm ..

Sven the Collector: A Fantasy Romance (Dokiri Brides) by Denali Day
Wonderful writing and character development. I absolutely loved the witty banter dialogue! Made me laugh out loud! The storyline was engaging and well thought out with entertaining characters and creatures who find adventure, danger, survival, and under it all, an undeniable love. This is a novella, but I really would have like to see it a full length novel. I believe this is this author’s first book. I look forward to reading

Nice but very short, you don’t get to blink and hate turns into love. I love forest stories and this one had a great potential but was way too short to achieve it.

This has been such a delectable read! Sven the Collector was filled with hold-your-breath moments, feel-good chuckles and a few toe-curling pages.
Also features everything I could wish for in a novella:
Instalove-NOT? Check.
Sizzling chemistry? Check.
Witty banter? Check.
Fast-moving plot? Check.
A dark, fantasy world with a touch of eerie? Check.
Immersive writing? Check.
A strong-willed heroine with a smart mouth to boot? Check.
A sexy hero who isn't just there to flex his biceps and save the day?

This was a very good story with a new culture I will keep following. Colette is the unusual daughter of a lord. She loved hunting with her 5 brothers and other manly pursuits which doesn't fit in her culture. She follows prey she is hunting into the Twist (the forbidden forest) where monsters reside. Sven has been watching Colette for a few weeks waiting to capture her and make her his bride which is part of his culture.

Things don't go as he plans and he finds out Colette is strong willed and

A New Author to me and it looks like this is her debut book. I know I want to read her next book, a well written story that I was not putting down until I finished reading. Lady Colette and Wyvern-rider Sven's story, had me laughing from the start, she could not stay out of trouble if she tried hard to do so. Their first meeting and she stabbed him and the wound put him to sleep and then she realized she needed him to keep her safe. I think I have just found another Author I will be reading when ...more

This story was good. It was short and sweet and a one-sit read. Sven and Colette are both warriors in their own right and know what they want. I liked Colette's attitude and her stance. Sven is a tough guy, following the ways his people in the process he gets more than he bargain for. After just finishing "The Witcher", this is what I am picturing, a dark long-haired Henry Cavill with a beard, fight some

I love the leading lady. I love strong women characters. Sven is interesting in the way that every day people don.t know that his kind exist just beyond their lands and are protecting them. The action is great and revealing as to Sven and his people are and what they do. I hope to read the next and more from this author,

Well written fantasy reality plus romance. A strong independent woman and even stronger man. Both set in having their own way. Who will win in the power struggle? Who would submit? And really good reality full of monsters and action. Really good read.

I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Review can also be found in *Milky Way of Books*

I have to admire a heroine who not only doesn't lose her wits completely after being taken by a dragon rider, but she also poisons him and ties him up! This was an enjoyable read with Colette as a strong heroine (albeit sometimes annoying) and Sven who though he could claim his 'bride' and instead got her.

The chemistry worked well between them and by the end of the book I was
