Review @JessieDauthor - The Dragon’s Dilemma by Jessie Donovan (Lochguard Highland Dragons #1)

The Dragon’s Dilemma
Lochguard Highland Dragons #1
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  From the author of the USA Today bestselling Stonefire Dragons series comes a new series centering on the dragon-shifters of the Scottish Highlands. Full of humor, alpha personalities, and a new threat, Clan Lochguard is waiting for you...

In order to pay for her father’s life-saving cancer treatment, Holly Anderson offers herself up as a sacrifice and sells the vial of dragon’s blood. In return, she will try to bear a Scottish dragon-shifter a child. While the dragonman assigned to her is kind, Holly can’t stop looking at his twin brother. It’s going to take everything she has to sleep with her assigned dragonman. If she breaks the sacrifice contract and follows her heart, she’ll go to jail and not be able to take care of her father.

Even though he’s not ready to settle down, Fraser MacKenzie supports his twin brother’s choice to take a female sacrifice to help repopulate the clan. Yet as Fraser gets to know the lass, his dragon starts demanding something he can’t have—his brother’s sacrifice.

Holly and Fraser fight the pull between them, but one nearly stolen kiss will change everything. Will they risk breaking the law and betraying Fraser’s twin? Or, will they find a way out of the sacrifice contract and live their own happily ever after?

Note: This is a spin-off series from the Stonefire Dragons. It can be read as a standalone but it takes place after Reawakening the Dragon.

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 amazing as always :)

This is the first in a spin-off series from the Stonefire Dragon series.  You can start reading here, but I definitely do NOT recommend it.  If you want to understand the world and characters, I highly recommend starting with the Stonefire series because it makes everything amazingly better :)  As with the other series, this is for adults only due to the steamy dragon enhanced scenes.

This is Fraser’s story (he is one of the twins who are Finn’s cousins and Faye’s sister).  I was pulled right into the story and loved that it was a complete story, so no waiting for parts to come out (not that I wouldn’t wait for Jessie’s stories because they always rock!)  Holly is a firecracker, and I loved her humor as well as the lesson she teaches Fraser’s dragon (had me rollin’, but I refused to ruin the surprise)!  I know I will love this series as much as the Stonefire series, and I can’t wait to see what Jessie cooks up next :)

I highly recommend this dragontastic series!!
