tempting the dragon king3 stars

This was an interesting fantasy/romance book. I’m not quite sure what I just read, but I’m not mad at it.

Juniper is hiking on earth and stumbles onto something she thinks is a cave but turns out to be an alien spacecraft. As she investigates, the ship takes off and shes hurled into space. Unable to understand the controls, and with no food or water left, she is resigned to dying on the ship. Tristan is the new king of his clan of dragon shifters. When he sees the ship of his enemy flying at his ship, he disables it and boards, expecting to fight his enemy.

When Tristan and Juniper see each other, sparks fly. The two eventually get together, but can their relationship last when he lives for centuries and she is mortal? Well, it’s a romance book, so what do you think?

This was a quick and easy read. It was a bit jarring to have a contemporary woman from earth making pop culture references while talking to a man that can transform into a dragon while they fly on a space ship? Huh? How did the author dream that up? It’s also strange that Tristan appears human and has all human characteristics (because how else would they have all the sex, right?) but can morph into a huge dragon. Perhaps this is not so weird. It is, after all, my first venture into a dragon, paranormal, romance book. Who knew? 🙂

In any event, this was actually a fun book to read. It’s all fluff and escapism, but who doesn’t need that once in awhile?

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
