Heart of the Raven by JC Wilder starts with Dani being sold to a noble. Haaken is looking for the woman meant for him in order to break the curse that turns him into a raven. Haaken tries to win Dani, but she has not known any kindness or compassion in her life and she is constantly suspicious of Haaken. Haaken lets Dani go to live her own life, but Dani soon realizes she misses Haaken and made a horrible mistake by leaving him. Haaken can't stay away from Dani, which is a good thing as he arrives in time to save her from being attacked by someone she always feared.
This was an interesting story, even though we don't really get to know Haaken, the author does a good job of conveying his care for Dani. I will certainly look for other titles by this author.
Fly With a Dragon by Rosemary Laurey begins with Myfanwy tied to a post waiting to be sacrificed to the dragon to ensure the safety of the village. When Arragh arrives, Myfanwy is surprised to see a handsome man, but they have no time for pleasantries because the villagers approach with the intent to kill the dragon, even if they have to kill Myfanwy as well, which is what happened to the other virgin sacrifices. Arragh flies Myfanwy to his castle in the clouds with the hope that she will bring fertility to the dragons as they haven't had any children born in many years.
It was interesting to see a sheltered village girl become an important member of the dragon's society and have her preconceived ideas completely refuted. This story was a new spin on the virgin sacrifice to appease the dragon story idea and the author kept me interested in finding out what happened next.
