Review - Seducing the Dragon: Part One by Jessie Donovan @JessieDauthor (Stonefire Dragons#5)

Seducing the Dragon:
Part One
Stonefire Dragons #5
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  PART ONE
On her first visit to Clan Stonefire, Department of Dragon Affairs inspector Evie Marshall has an ulterior motive—she needs to seduce its clan leader. If she can’t seduce him and become his mate, the dragon hunters will kill her. Of course, Evie doesn’t know the first thing about seducing a man, let alone a dragon-shifter, but with her life on the line, she’s going to have to become a fast learner or die trying.

Bram Moore-Llewellyn has a track record of scaring off DDA inspectors, but when the latest inspector shows up wearing tight clothes and sexy smile, his inner dragon takes notice. While battling his attraction to the human, he soon finds himself with an impossible choice: he can either break the law to mate the female and risk a backlash from both the dragon hunters and the British government, or he can turn her away and let her die at the hands of the hunters.

NOTE: This is Part One only and it ends on a cliffhanger.

Seducing the Dragon: Part One is 14,600 words long and is the first installment in the BBW/Dragon-shifter Seducing serial. It is NOT a complete book, and the story will unfold over four or five parts. It contains explicit language and lots of steam. For 18+. Please read these installments in order! Thank you!

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, but will most definitely be buying it come payday :)

The cover is yummy :)  I think I want Clan Stonefire’s leader ;)  Definitely a cover to grab the attention of any dragon-shifter lover!!

Ok let’s start with the things some people (myself included) need to know because we skipped reading the blurb ;)  This is a serial which means it is only one episode or part of a whole story.  This part is about 50 pages, and it is the first part of the story.  It leaves you wanting more, and you have to wait for it because this serial is not complete yet.  Stonefire Dragons #1-4 is the first story and a complete serial series.  If you are not sure whether you are a serial fan, I’d start with the first set first.

Okay, I think Jessie is my favorite serial author :)  That’s not to say that I don’t scream and yell that I want the Stonefire books to be full novels while reading them ;)  She does such an awesome job with her serials.  She stops them in just the right places that make sense (at least to my crazy brain!)  I have no trouble making the story and characters come alive in my head while reading her serials, and I have yet to have a problem connecting with the characters which has happened in other serials where I just couldn’t connect with the characters until the 2nd or 3rd installment.

If you don’t know my reviews, I don’t really talk about the plot and things happening in the story because I never want to spoil someone else’s adventure in the book.  I do talk about the characters though :)  Evie is awesome because she won’t take anyone’s you know what.  I love when the female lead is a strong woman.  I love when they fight back and stick up for themselves.  With Bram, I’m torn because I sort of already loved him because of the first serial series, but he does have his need to be slapped moments as any alpha man does ;)  There is plenty of drama and action to fill the pages while you learn about Evie and her predicament.  I really can’t wait for more of this series!!  I really loved it!!

I highly recommend this serial series to those who already love Jessie’s work especially the Stonefire Dragons, and all my dragon shifter lovers out there.  If you are one of the people who want to wait until the whole serial is out, start with the first serial series instead.
