Jul 22, Carmen rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Weredragon Lovers. Shelves: traditionally-published , she-says , romance , fiction. I hate to rate this so low. I mean, it's just a fantasy. You're a history professor specializing in pre-Norman Britain. A gorgeous guy who's six five comes into your office and starts chatting you up. Even though you're plain-looking?
He takes you out to dinner. Instead of being intimidated by your job, you find he can quote Beowulf in Old English from memory. He walks you ba I hate to rate this so low. He walks you back to your hotel and for some strange reason you never do this!
Then you two have amazing sex. With every breath he expelled, it was like his touch intensified. Instead of one tongue stroking her, she swore she could feel a hundred of them. It was as if her skin was alive and being massaged all over at once. Now, this personally sounds creepy to me. A hundred tongues? Do you know why the sex with this guy is so "heightened? Oh, of course, that's the first thing that pops into my mind.
O I seem to be reading a LOT of weredragon stuff lately Now, it seems every paranormal romance author and her sister is writing about them. After having sex with this guy, both of you are suddenly branded with some geometric shape.
You're his mate! If you don't bond with him in 3 weeks, he will be doomed to live life alone, and never have sex again Here Kenyon's created a tailor-made woman's fantasy: - Hot guy instantly in love with you for no reason.
You don't have to do anything special, say anything clever, or look sexy. He just instantly is in love with you because of "who you are. Since you are his mate, he can never have sex with anyone ever again except you.
Even if you leave him which you're free to do , he's damned to a life of celibacy without you. This is what romance novels ARE. So, no points off. Things that fail: - While having sex, Sebastian bites Channon on the neck with his fangs and drinks her blood, and she grows fangs one-time deal only and drinks his blood too. I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who finds this gross and not sexy. Every time I read that I involuntarily make a "blergh" face.
In the course of the story, he casts one sleeping spell on Channon. There's also this part where, if she had not let him in to the hotel room for sex he would have broken his vow of "interfering in human free will.
The idea that if she had been like, "Okay, bye" his inner beast? Nothing happens from it - but I wish Kenyon had just never brought it up in the first place. We could have completely sidestepped this whole thing. It also makes me scream "LIAR! There are no other consent issues in the rest of the story, this was the only speedbump, and it was a pretty minor one, considering. There is a cheesy story and dialogue, but that's okay - no points off - because this is a romance and I expect it to be silly.
Oh, you know. Good weredragons vs. Grace must spend the rest of her life in Britain a thousand years ago, but she and Sebastian pop back to modern times once in a while so that she can catch up on Buffy. Things that work: - Channon's addiction to Buffy is cute. Making Sebastian watch marathons of Buffy with her is cute. Reading and liking romance is subjective. Each reader is going to like different stuff. Because every romance author has their little "quirks" and also way of writing sex, the trick is to find an author who writes the fantasies YOU want to live out in your head.
This can take a while. Kenyon's not "the one" for me in regards to romance books, but that's okay. She could be just the most perfect author ever for someone else. No judgment, this is just my personal take on the story. One real star, two romance stars.

The characteristics, specialities of Arcadians and Katagaria are very interesting and logical. Sebastian is a typical alpha hero with the appearance of a Greek god, a pinch of remorse, and some extras, such as shape-shifting and time-traveler abilities, and almost immortal life.
The time frame is not clear. The writing is full of repetitions. Not only words, but whole expressions return. Furthermore, I miss the moving and heart-wrenching emotionality that is usual from Sherrilyn Kenyon.
All in all, it is really worth reading it if the root of the conflict between the Arcadians and the Katagaria is not clear for you. View all 7 comments.
