Review @JessieDauthor - Healed by the Dragon: Part One by Jessie Donovan (Stonefire Dragons#10)

Healed by the Dragon
Part One
Stonefire Dragons #10
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  PART ONE
Arabella MacLeod was tortured by dragon hunters a decade ago. Ever since, her clan coddled and tip-toed around her, most especially her older brother. Desperate for a chance at freedom, she volunteers to foster with the Scottish dragon-shifter clan. She’s determined to stay clear of the charming Scottish leader, but not only does he keep crossing her path, her dragon is drawn to him.

Finlay Stewart hasn’t been able to forget the scarred dragonwoman he met at Stonefire six months ago. When the same female agrees to be fostered with his clan, Finn pursues her. Balancing his clan duties with his need to see Arabella isn’t easy, especially with the existing rift in the clan, but he’s determined to try. Arabella’s inner strength draws him like no other female before.

Will Arabella trust Finn with her past? Or, will the rift in his clan tear them apart?

About the Author:  Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The one thing you'll find in all of Jessie's stories are strong, capable women and the people who love them.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received the ebook from the author from an honest review

The cover is sexy!!  I definitely like it, and it calls me to the book :)

This is a serial novella series.  For those who do not know what that means, I will explain :)  A serial series is like a part or episode of a book.  It is always multiple parts and different for each author, but Jessie’s are usually 4 parts.  This is the first part of Arabella’s story, and you need to read all of the parts in order to understand what is going on.  While you do not have to read the other two sets to understand the story, I highly recommend you do because you will miss out by skipping them.  That being said, this serial is NOT complete yet meaning it is like a cliffhanger at the end of each part.  This serial is about Dragon shifters, and for anyone who does not know what a shifter is (yes I found out some people do not know), they are people who change into another creature like a werewolf but could be anything like a wolf, tiger, shark, or bird, but in this series they change into dragons :)

This story is about Finlay Steward and Arabella MacLeod.  If you read the other sets, we could see the story coming and for me, I couldn’t wait to read it.  Ara has such strength that I have loved her for a while for her spirit and strength even though she doesn’t realize she has it.

Wow, Jessie does not disappoint as usual.  She always does a fantastic job sucking me into her stories where I can’t put it down.  I was floored and screaming when it ended because I was not paying attention to the percent read because I was so pulled into the story, and it was over before I realized it.  I do have to say that this one is going to be the hardest to wait for the next part.

I highly recommend reading all of Jessie’s Stonefire Dragon series, but if you do not like cliffhangers or waiting for the next part, you may want to wait on reading it until the serial is complete so you can start with the first two serial sets which I loved :)
