This is not what I expected, but I loved it regardless. A girl goes out drinking with her friends... And ends up the bride of a dragon. BUT, see, here's the twist, usually a girl gets chosen to be a sacrifice to the dragons. They were supposed to be celebrating, in case one of them is chosen, or maybe none of them are. But Acasia is. And she is sent to live with the dragons. Who are dragon shifters. PS, she also throws up on said dragon the first time she meets him, which is hilarious.

Bastien is the dragon who gets Acasia. He's quite sad about this, because he had a bride, but humans die in his world, and he really doesn't want to get attached to her. He lusts after her, but tries to keep her away by being rude.

The world building is interesting. There are 4 dragons left, and Hera has cursed them all because of the actions of one. Every one hundred years, they choose a bride, to fall in love, and then she dies. It's a little heart breaking. They all must do this until they find their true mate. But there's a little twist here. :) And they can go back to the earth realm, where there's a vampire of course and shifters.

It's definitely an interesting start to a series and I think I'll enjoy the next book when it comes out! :) 4 PAWS!!
