Summary

Lambda Literary 2022 Lesbian Romance winner

Golden Crown Literary Society 2022 winner in the following categories:

  • Romantic Blend
  • Ann Bannon Popular Choice
  • Tee Corinne Cover Design (Em Schreiber, cover designer)

A chance encounter. An unforgettable night.

And back home, trouble is brewing on the remote island of Three Dragons, where nothing feels like it used to. Alone and lonely, Sam Threadneedle wishes upon a star, hoping for change. But when said change comes, it's with a roar and not a whimper.

Torn between loyalty and lust, Sam is forced to reevaluate everything.

Can she and the Home of Dragons withstand the storm that is Magdalene Nox, or will any and all crumble?

Not everything is as it seems, and as she slowly unravels the mysteries behind the centuries-old walls, Sam realizes that home is much more than oak and stone.

Contains mature themes.

Really enjoyed it not sure why I put off listening to it!

I’ve seen this book on my recommended list for I don’t know how long and I was always a bit put off thinking it was supernatural or something! It is not! It is good! Get listening!

Great story, good amount of “adult themes” throughout and Abbey Crayden is perfect as always. Onto the next book in the series now!

Beautiful

Eloquence, passion, desire but also soft, comforting and loving. Brilliantly written story and wonderfully narrated by Abby Craden. Definitely recommend you add to your library

Good book

Overall I liked it, and the twist at the end was worth all the wondering and curiosity throughout. For me it was a bit too rambley, way too many words to describe some emotional moments which actually ruined it instead of making it better which I assume the writer was trying to achieve. I wasn't overly keen on Magdalenas voice which is rare as I usually love all Abbey voices but not this one as the main character. It slightly annoys me when a writer alludes to something with no follow through, like the fact one of the characters bought a dildo but there was no story line to follow through on this was a bit random and wasteful. Other than that it was a decent listen but probably not a go to for re listening for some time.

Absolutely loved it!

One of my favourite lesbian love stories to date.
Absolutely adored the moving, evocative and compelling novel. Furthermore, the narration by Abby Craden brought the entire tale together so incredibly well.
Would highly recommend!

Three Dragons?

I can’t believe I resisted listening to this for so long because I thought it was a fantasy fic. Mainly due to the references to three dragons. But I was so, so wrong. It’s a brilliant piece of writing brought alive by the stunning narration of Abby Craden. If I have one very small criticism, it’s that the voice of Magdalene Nox (whilst incredibly sexy) made some of the dialogue a little difficult to hear for someone (myself) who has a hearing problem. (Guess I’ll have to buy the book as well.) Sublime.
