Gwennore has a talent. An Elf able to track down the cause of an illness and heal it, she’s a valuable asset to her people. When the kidnapping of a young girl thrusts Gwennore into the very heart of the realm of the dragons, she discovers not only a place of power and magic, but also a haunted land, plagued by an ancient curse that all but ensures extinction to the royal family. But when she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, they strike a bargain—save the country from its cursed illness, and he will return the kidnapped girl. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon, but never did making a deal with the devil feel so good…

Silas has no way of curing the family he’s loyally served for years. But when a beautiful elf, long considered the enemy of the dragons, comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to passion and desire in a way he’s never felt before. But can he trust a sworn enemy to save the very existence he holds dear? And can their love survive those that threaten to tear them apart?

I can't believe we are three books into this new series of Sparks', where has the time gone? I seems like just yesterday that I was reading How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days out 3/7/17, see a long time ago. Ha! 

If you follow my reviews then you know that I really enjoyed both books. I will say though that Eight Simple Rules For Dating a Dragon is by far my favorite book of the series so far. I just loved it! 

I would love to say that the reason I loved it was because of Silas and Gwen only but that would be a lie. This book shows how much other characters matter in a book. There were so many that I really enjoyed. I never found myself wishing for the end of the story no matter how much I wanted to know how it ended. 

The interaction between both Silas and Gwen is wonderful. They really worked. I likes how they teased each other. You could tell right away how much they cared about each other. It was so sweet. A true romance. 

One thing I will tell you is that I would read this series in order. There is a main story thread that runs throughout each of the books along with characters. Reading them in order makes each story richer in a way. You really connect with the heroines in each story because you really get to know them. 

If you really enjoy fantasy romance then this series is for you. It's historical without being overly historical. It's the perfect blend of fantasy and historical. I just loved it. 

If you've read Eight Simple Rules For Dating a Dragon or any other book by Kerrelyn Sparks I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
