I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure if I saw a dragon fer realz, I would set a new land speed record for getting the hell outta there.
Journalist Rachel Marek wants to expose the existence of dragons to the world and show them for the monsters they are, so when a tip takes her to the World Whisky Consortium, she knows this is her big break. Dragon King Asher wants desperately not to be at WWC, but his luck is looking up when he meets Rachel. With his schedule back to back, he and Rachel spend as much time together as possible, but neither of them expects the sheer shot of rightness that comes with it. With both of them harboring secrets, and with a dangerous man set on revenge, will their new relationship stand a chance?
DRAGON FEVER is book 9.5 in the Dark Kings series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.
It took me a bit of time to get into this short novella, I just didn't feel any sort of connection with either of the MC's. Rachel was kind of a bitch, I'm not sure why she was so determined to out the dragons and expose them so they could be eradicated. And for a respected journalist, she was suspiciously lacking in common sense and the ability to consider all sides of a story. Asher was fine, just not really a super compelling character in and of himself. Together the two didn't do much for me, even the sex scenes were ho-hum. The characters lacked that spark of chemistry needed to compel me to swipe my ereader screen furiously, and it wound up taking me about 3 times longer to read than it should have since the book couldn't hold my attention.
Bottom Line: Fans of the Dark Kings series will no doubt enjoy Asher and Rachel's story.
