Bride of the Dragons by Selina Coffey
Bride of the Dragons is a shifter ménage fantasy romance written by Selina Coffey.
For Adelina Harcourt, third daughter to the poor Earl of Fanten, a bleak future in the nunnery is waiting. So, she takes extra care to make herself beautiful at the historic meeting between humans and the High Dragon’s court hoping to catch the eye of a rich nobleman who wouldn’t require a dowry. What she catches instead is the eye of not only the alpha but also the omega of the powerful Blue Dragonflight.
This is a short but very exciting book of romance and action. I find the plot unique and very intriguing, different from other paranormal and shape-shifter stories I have read before. Told in casual and conversational style, the book is easy to read and can be finished in one sitting. The characters are well developed and are given distinctive descriptions that it is easy to distinguish the stubborn Elekon from the calm and wise Siron.
However, with the book being too short, there are no backstories to any of the characters making it difficult to relate to any of them well-developed though they are. I also find the ending a little predictable and though I don’t mind that at all, other readers may. Moreover, the steamy and vivid sex scenes may not be suitable for young readers.
All in all, I like this book and though I’m not much into shape-shifting stories (because I always wonder where the clothes go) I enjoyed this book a lot and wished it were longer.
