Summary

I’m engaged to a stranger, a man - dragon. If I don’t marry him, I’m as good as dead.

I’ve been hiding all my life.

Unlike the rest of my once powerful family, I have no magic.

The immortal monster that ate them all, still hunts me.

And my grandmother thinks that the only way to save me from the monster is to marry me to another monster: a dragon.

Only this monster is perfection in human form: all rippling golden muscle and more gorgeous than anyone who shifts into a scaled monstrous beast has a right to be. His magic calls me, his heat enthralls me and my mind melts at the touch of his inhumanely hot hands on my skin.

There is no way I can marry him.

I know what he truly wants: access to my family’s power.

But I have no magic, no power of my own.

He thinks he knows what he’s getting with me.

I don’t play those games.

It’s better to run from a monster, than to marry one.

I’m no dragon’s treasure.

Even if my heart wishes otherwise.

New auto buy

I can count on my fingers the number of auto buy authors I have, Kara Lockharte made the list with one book.
I love everything about her world, it’s so original and I’m British we tend to be a bit protective of our dragons.
There is so much I want to say about this amazing couple, but don’t want to add spoilers.
So set aside a few hours for yourself, relax and let a dragon take your imagination for a ride.

Perfect

I love stories where the main characters fight their attraction it makes it so much better when they finally give in and accept.
This one did that just perfectly

A steamy (and scaly!) adventure

I haven't read much paranormal romance (PNR) in years, and even then very little of it contained dragons. But I love Genevieve Cogman's Invisible Library series, and though that is more steampunky fantasy than PNR, it certainly helped endear me to the notion of dragon-shifters.

I still found that I was unprepared for quite how much suspension of disbelief this audiobook required, though. Once I settled into it and stopped expecting things to make sense (or to obey the laws of physics), I came to quite like the characters and was invested in their race to defeat The Devourer and save the day.

Sophie is as ordinary as Hunter is extraordinary, and though she cannot match his power or confidence, she's no pushover. Hunter was more reserved, and we learnt less about his background, but that implacable, predatory countenance suited his character. Though they had very little time to become acquainted, their magical bond strengthened throughout their quest.

Much of the story felt like YA fiction, especially the epilogue, but the raunchy bits are more adult than that, so I struggled to place it at times. New Adult, perhaps?

The narrator, Victoria Mei, gave Sophie a voice that suited the character well, and remained enthusiastic and lively in her performance.

Though somewhat lightweight, this audiobook was well paced and a quick listen, full of lust, magic, and ancient battles between good and evil that held enough of my attention to be enjoyable.

I'd recommend Betrothed to the Dragon to lovers of paranormal romance who are looking for a fun taster to a new series, and those like myself who need an easy way back into the genre.

*I received this audiobook free of charge in the hope of an honest, unbiased review.

Nice quick listen

I enjoyed listening to this book. This is a quick listen but with an overall nicely paced storyline. Some short stories feel rushed with a bunch of plot holes but this one is packed with action, danger, suspense, and hot romance. I received this audiobook for free and I’m leaving this honest review.

Interesting.

This book was very interesting and I loved both of the main characters. The author did a good job, even though the book is short and fast-paced I didn't feel as though it was rushed. Victoria Mei did awesome job bringing the characters to life.🎧AudiobookObsession

PNR

This is a quick paced storyline that is packed full of humor, action, and love. Kara did an excellent job in creating this world where magic exists outside of the human knowledge, but have it be a very important role of the safety of humans and magical beings. Victoria did an outstanding job with the narrative.
