I was curious to see how the author would work them in, and I was very happy about how she did it. Like you expect it, but it's still nice to see how it is worked in. The kingdom of Norveshka has a long and heartbreaking history, very much centered around its dragons. All of which is revealed in this book!
I adore Silas's officers, the male secondary characters! Dimitri and Aleksi are hilarious - honestly, the brotherhood in this book is awesome. They have such a great camaraderie, something I always like to see among males in any type of novel.

I hope all of them get their own happily ever after! The conflict of this book centers mostly around getting rid of the curse that plagues Norveshka - something sinister has been at work for centuries. Gwenmore is an extraordinary healer she has interesting elvish gifts! But there is a familiar evil standing in the way. The other part of the story is the romance, which was sweet and frustrating. I'll talk about the "frustrating" part in the next section. But for the most part, it was a sweet and sometimes spicy romance. I think I wanted more from the romance, but I also appreciated the progression of the romance and the tension.
Mostly sparked by Silas, which was part of my frustration. Theoretically I liked this book, but I finished it feeling rather dissatisfied, like something was missing. Or maybe I just wasn't that into it, like I was the other books. This wasn't a bad book, and I'm sure others will love it. What I Did Not Like: I got so fed up with Gwenmore around halfway through the book. You know the phrase "the lady doth protest too much"?

Gwenmore was seriously annoying. This was not cute. This was not part of a merry chase. This was absolutely annoying, and also heartbreaking to see on Silas's end. You know what would have redeemed this crap? Silas, walking away from Gwenmore rather than being the persistent guy that he is. And Gwenmore having to chase after him. That would have made her realize that a good man wanted her and he had no bad intentions when it came to her - and she was in the wrong by turning him down knowing that she wanted to be with him, physically and emotionally.
Gwenmore is kind of an idiot? Because Silas keeps trying to win her over - which is cool of him, but seriously? I don't love this. It's romantic but also kind of icky - men shouldn't be putting in all of the effort. She didn't fight for the relationship, she put no effort into it. Instead, it was all "omg Gwenmore is hot, I want her so much, I want to kiss her, I'm not going to stop trying to get her to admit she wants me, even though she keeps rejecting me", and then Gwenmore keeps rejecting him, until finally her hormones take over her common sense.
Gwenmore needed to put in some actual effort into the chemistry, and eventually the relationship. The chase wasn't fun because Gwenmore was so annoying with her constant rejections. She saw each one hurt his feelings and THAT made her sad, but she never did anything about it. Let the girl chase. Get rid of this notion that a man should be the one doing all of the chasing. I like it sometimes, it works with some books, but really, let's not keep this up all the time. Would I Recommend It: I recommend the series in general - the first two books are excellent. This one was okay for me but not super great, but I suppose I'd still recommend it to those who have read the previous books in the series.
If you've read none of the series, definitely do not start with this one. Start with book one and go in order, even though they are standalone companion novels. The series will make more sense that way, and also I personally think this third book is the weakest of the three. But in general, this fantasy romance series is really good. The romances are sweet and passionate, the men are sweet, charming alphas, and the women are strong, innocent women. I like these match-ups! I wish I'd liked this one more, especially since we're dealing with a dragon mmm, fiery , and an elf magical!
I was frustrated with Gwenmore and the romance. But I adored so many of the other characters, and the story in general was pretty good. I'm definitely going to be reading book four and book five. I hope we'll see cameos of Silas and Gwenmore, as we saw a lot of Leo and Luciana and heard about Rupert and Brigitta in this book! Apr 04, Crack A Book Cafe rated it it was amazing.

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by Kerrelyn Sparks
Even so, she has an inner strength that, as the story progresses, helps her build confidence. Which definitely comes in handy because she has a lot on her plate. Having medicinal skills and healing powers make Gwen uniquely suited to help a desperate Silas find answers to a family curse. His charisma drew me in and held me fast from start to finish! Gwen and Silas were made for each other. The two characters played off each other beautifully and kept me invested in them as a couple. I was also impressed with the world building. This balance left room for the secondary characters to thrive and gain depth.
I adored the secondary characters! There were a couple of slightly cheesy scenes that seemed a bit out of place and random; but not terrible. I for one have now added Books 1 and 2 to my leaning tower of TBR list. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley.

Kerrelyn Sparks delivered another winner with the third installment. This time the story is set in the land of Norveshka and we get to see their majestic dragons from up close.
The other nations are terrified of Norveshka and it's dragons but this country has some tightly guarded secrets. The royal line and two other founding clans are accursed and after repeated plagues the country is dying out from within.
General Dravenko refuses to believe that the curses are anyt I'm in love with this series! General Dravenko refuses to believe that the curses are anything but superstitions and feels that something sinister is at work. Gwennore is an elf who has been treated as an outcast for most of her life because of her heritage. Dravenko sees past the prejudices to the brave, witty girl beneath.
When Dravenko requests her help to find out what's happening to the royal line, she agrees. Under the guise of Dravenko's lover, Gwen infiltrates the royal court, matching wits with the power-hungry nobles. The book can mostly be read as a standalone, but I would strongly suggest reading the series in order. Mar 14, Dianne rated it really liked it. She was raised to never trust a dragon, but Gwennore, an Elf with the power to heal may have to do just that to save a kidnapped girl.
Silas, a powerful general in the royal dragon family guard will do anything to save his dying people, even strike a deal with his enemy, the beautiful Elf with the power to get to the cause of sickness and heal it. To get things rolling, it only took one kidnapping and a rescue But what about dating an Elf? Once again we have another great fantasy read that heats up the pages with tension, danger, a little humor and some dragon passion.
Sparks has put together an interesting collection of characters that at times seem almost like square pegs being forced into round holes. Get ready for great secondary characters, they can make those pages fly! Silas had all the he-man stuff down pat, complete with that tinge of loneliness or longing.

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Now I won't say that I loved this book as much as book two which is still my favorite book this author has ever written but there w This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance I received this book for free from St. Now I won't say that I loved this book as much as book two which is still my favorite book this author has ever written but there was so MUCH goodness in this book.
And quite frankly, I was so mad that this book was only pages I breezed through this book in like 2 hours I never read that quickly but I definitely read this one in one sitting and before I realized it the story was over and I didn't want it to be. So in book two So I Married A Sorcerer we get glimpses of the dragons and the realm that they live in, which they are super secretive anyway.
But I was so intrigued by these "dragons" and most especially their general and future heir Silas Dravenko. This book starts out with our heroine who is Gwenmore. She is Elf and as such she is looked at by main with disdain and really dislike as a whole. But somehow she is next to find her "husband' according to her group of friends and adopted sisters. But she doesn't really believe in it.
While playing with Luciana's young daughter, who gets kidnapped by a real fire breathing dragon, Gwenmore does what she has to and jumps a ride with the dragon. And when he kicks her off and she almost is killed, she is saved by another dragon, one that she can understand and one she bonds with on an intimate level without realizing who he really is. They are taken to the realm of the dragons and the people who live in this hidden kingdom. A kingdom that has a King and Queen that are mentally disturbed and being poisoned. The people are suffering from a curse that has lasted for hundreds of years.
But Gwenmore is a healer, and she knows the sciences of medicines and believes that she can help including helping them evade a war with Luciana and her husband. It soon becomes apparent that the castle is full of dangers especially with an enemy that is poisoning the royal family and it is up to Gwen to discover why and who and to help put a stop at it so the country can heal from this "curse" that is plaguing them. But they meet up with the "circle of the five" including the chameleon they fought in book two but never defeated.
And the man he takes the image and station of is NOT someone you would ever expect. I was really intrigued with this side plot of danger and intrigue that this "circle" is playing. We learn more about Gwen's true heritage and that she is more than what she seems to be. And we see why she truly feels at home in the realm of the dragons and that her "dragon" is the man she is falling for, the future king of the realm of the Dragons. And boy the chemistry between these two is powerful. I just loved their sweet slow burning connecting that builds in this story.
It honestly wasn't quite what I expected, since its slow but intense at the same time. You just become hooked on their romance and seeing their story just bloom in its own way. That sounds like a bad case of heartburn. You give it a try. Especially when we learn about her parents and see her kind and gentle spirit just learn to blossom and grow stronger in this story. I felt such a kinship to the characters here and seeing both Silas and Gwen grow together and also start to rebuild a country that needs some true joy and healing.
They make such a great team and work so in sync without even realizing that they are doing it. There is only one mate for a dragon, and he will love her forever. I found this story to be a breathtaking installment into a world that is captivating and thrilling in the only way that Sparks can pen a tale Feb 08, Alaina rated it it was amazing Shelves: ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review. Gwen has a talent, just like all of her adopted sisters. With one touch she can tack down the cause of an illness and heal it.
Oh, and she also found out that she can hear dragons and trees AND speak back to them. Any book with shape shifting dragon hotties can count me in to read it. Before I dive into this review, I didn't even know that this book was in a series. Nor did I know that it was the third book. That being said, I think you could totally read this as a standalone and not be confused at all. Plus, this book definitely makes me want to dive into the first two. I loved Gwen's character because she just seemed so relatable, likable, sassy, and smart.
I didn't like how everyone looked down on her or talked crap about her. I get it, she's an elf but she didn't do anything to these people. I just wanted to reach into this book and slap people. It threw me for a loop about the whole Puff thing because I didn't know if that was him or not but then I finally figure it out WAY before Gwen did. I just loved him as a guy and how he wanted to protect her so quickly and effortlessly because she was in danger.
I loved their chemistry, their banters, and everything else about them. Heck, I was shipping them since day one.
Besides the romance, there's a pretty good mystery going on. You want to know who is poisoning everyone in this country. Why is the Queen mad? Why is the King mad? Then there's a good villain who has yet to be caught. Secrets are found out that make friendships and relationships stronger. Then there's a happy ending - I mean, who doesn't love those? Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon was a super quick read for me.
I think I read it in like an hour? It was late at night and my migraine wasn't letting me sleep so I just pulled out my phone and read it on my kindle app. I loved every second of it. Heck, I devoured this book. I can't wait for the next book because I'm so excited to see where Gwen comes from!

As an elf, Gwennore is constantly beging rejected and ridiculed. She longs for a husband and children but is very much aware that her hopes will never be fulfilled. Instead of a family of her own, she lives with Luciana, her adopted sister, and cares for her children. While she loves them all, Eviana is the most precious to her.

So when a dragon swoops down and snatches the three year old, Gwen attaches herself to its leg and refuses to let go. Filled with secrets and curses and an illness that has swept over Norveshka, he isolates himself with his army at the border to fight a war against the elves. When he realizes that Gwen might be able to help identify and possible rid his country of the curse his kind has lived with for hundreds of years, he will do anything to keep her. This book has quite a bit of mystique to it as it twists and turns while these characters race to find a solution before things go from bad to worse.
The humor here is the kind that has you smiling from the banter sprinkled liberally throughout the story.
The author gives enough background information to make this a standalone even with the continuing villainy that has traveled through each of these books.

This series just keeps getting better and better. And I will be honest one character was solely responsible for that; Silas Dravenko. This was one of those books that you start, and pretty much have a smile on your face, and a giggle sitting on your 5 - "Rejected again If he fell for her would he be able to let her go… I loved the dynamic between them from the get-go, and although Gwen was a little slow on the uptake with a few things that as a reader I worked out early on, it was just an absolute pleasure to read this book.
It left me happy, fulfilled and utterly desperate for more from the series. ARC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest albeit a tad gushy review.

Her special gift is healing so this is right up her ally of expertise. Silas, the prince of the land, agrees that the baby needs to immediately go back to her parents but he wants to keep Gwen to help with the curse and so much more.
Silas finds he is quickly falling for her and she him. The journey into the curse is wrought with peril and political machinations. I did have a difficult time with so many characters not knowing their own mind, especially the gullibility of the king. But in the end this read was predictable yet entertaining, captivating and a delightful respite from reality. This is my honest and voluntary review.

I wont give it all away! I ended up really liking the story. I would have liked more interaction between Orion and Cadence perhaps more focused them instead of everything else that was happening. Not saying there wasn't interaction there totally was and Orion can be really sweet. I thought maybe he would include her in his daily life and what he did with his businesses that kind of thing.

So, I really enjoyed this, but there were a few issues that I had with it but it all revolved around the same thing: This, just like the first book in the series, needed better editing. At one point in the book Orion and Candence were about to get it on and they went from being in the bedroom to being outside in the span of just laying down. There wasn't really any way for the reader to know the time span of how long So, I really enjoyed this, but there were a few issues that I had with it but it all revolved around the same thing: There wasn't really any way for the reader to know the time span of how long every thing took from pregnancy to egg removal to the time they hatch.
Did it take months? Also, I don't remember there being a proposal-or was them doing the nasty the proposal? They literally went from sex to marriage. Moments were skipped and there was a lot of detail that was cut out. Just like the first book there were double words, unnecessary punctuation i. However, this one was WAY worse than the first book when it came to editing. The first book had an extra word here and there, but this was really bad. The author really needs to have a second eye for these issues because the editing in this one was really bad.
I enjoyed the overall story, and this it could have been a little better with better editing and less time lapses and lack of detail. I really did enjoy this book as a whole. I loved the story, scene setting, and the characters, it was just the background stuff that annoyed me. Apr 21, Jessica Frances rated it it was amazing. This is book two in this new series by Georgette, however it can be read as a standalone. There are brief appearances from the first couple in the series so while it works on its own, I would suggest reading the first book anyway.
Cadence is half werewolf, half dragon. She never knew her father and was raised by her mother with no impact from her father or his family. Since her wolf was most dominant she was able to hide that she was half dragon, however she is changing. Her wolf is gone and her This is book two in this new series by Georgette, however it can be read as a standalone. Her wolf is gone and her dragon side is beginning to take over. She is unable to hide it any longer and since dragon births are on the decline, she has no choice but to register and subject herself to a forced mating with a complete stranger.
Some quick thinking gets them both in the same room and that is where the real fun begins. I love this world Georgette has created as well as the two sides to the dragons. The ice dragons and the fire dragons and the war that has always been simmering between them is so interesting. Cadence is an ice dragon and Orion is a fire dragon.
They should hate each other, not be falling in love. This one had action, forbidden romance and a lot of fun moments. Apr 20, Angie rated it really liked it. Very good story, not so great editing. As with the first The Mating Game book, the story was entertaining with tons of action and humor, but the editing leaves a bit to be desired.
Confused pronouns, magically going from on the bed to lying in the grass during the same scene, and mixed up names that could cause some major confusion. But again, as I mentioned in my review of The Big Bad Wolf, all of these editing issues were not enough to cause me to stop reading or to distract from my enjoyment o Very good story, not so great editing.
But again, as I mentioned in my review of The Big Bad Wolf, all of these editing issues were not enough to cause me to stop reading or to distract from my enjoyment of the book. Cadence, the heroine, is a hybrid shifter, half wolf and half ice dragon, though she's only recently started showing signs of being a dragon and losing her inner wolf, which she's had since she was born.
Her dragon training is amusing as could be at times, as is Orion's courting of her. There are a few characters from The Big Bad Wolf that drop in during this book, which of course brings even more humor to the book. The fact that Orion is a fire dragon and Cadence is an ice dragon brought the action from many different sources. I'd recommend this book to any fans of dragon shifter stories, though this one had some different characteristics to the dragons from what I've seen before.
To me,that just added to the story. This can be read as a stand alone book, reading The Big Bad Wolf is not necessary. If you can get past some editing issues, this might be the books for you!!

She grew up shifting into a wolf but is now unable to call her wolf anymore and her ice dragon side is getting stronger.
Cadence is a sassy, smart lovable woman who knows her life is going to go downhill now her ice dragon side is coming out. Orion is the leader of the fire dragons and is so used to getting his way he does not understand the word no. He has given up on finding love and just wants to have some dragonlings of his own. A misunderstanding at dinner sends Cadence off into trouble. Orion saves her and explains why he behaved as he did. Totally understandable once you know why. Fire and Ice dragons have not mixed due to a problem years earlier.
What follows is a lot of fun with sniping fire and ice dragons, meddling mothers and with the obligatory baddie and some good dust ups. The family interactions were quite good. I really enjoyed this story and hope we see more of these characters.

The book is well-written and, surprising for an electronic book, no typos.
The characters are well developed, and the plot interesting. The dialogue is well-written and at times quite witty. But it bothered me that Candace didn't even challenge the sexism inherent in the culture. That sexism should have been a source of conflict in the story.
