This -- romance -- is new for her, but this is some of her best writing. It's fun, sweet, enormously entertaining, and just plain great.
There aren't many authors who earn a highest recommendation from me, but Lynne is one.
I liked that Verity was headstrong and smart and refused to settle for what her family though was best. I liked that she educated herself and was aware of the tricks that would have been played on her and the consequences she would face if they were successful. I was extremely happy when she finally met Ryan face to face. I didn't like that it took so long in the book for them to finally meet. I'm not a huge fan of the bachelor type reality shows, but I was okay with the theme of it in this book.
Ryan and Verity face many challenges with him basically being forbidden and her being one of the few remaining fertile dragon females. So many people want Verity to "do the right thing" and choose one of the bachelors, even though she felt nothing for them and it seemed they were all there for the wrong reasons. Her family was very traditional and cared nothing for her happiness.
I liked this book, but I wish there was more focus on Verity and Ryan together. I enjoyed the last 50% more than the beginning. I would definitely read more from this author.
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Ryan, a likable dragon fantasy nerd, fantasizes about dragons, and falls in love-lust with Verity, the dragon shapeshifting princess on a Bachelorette show from the Dragon Planet. He figures that his forbidden wish will remain in the realm of fantasy, but circumstances bring Verity right into his house in San Francisco.
The show's earth-born producer, Tracy Travis, manages to insert Ryan into the show on the Dragon Planet -even though he is from Earth, the Forbidden Zone (forbidden because earthlings tend to make religions out of visits by aliens). He must somehow sidestep the murderous intent of the dragon bachelor candidates - native dragon shapeshifters, each of whom feels that Verity should be his mate. Verity herself has the opposite intention; she is not willing to be enslaved by a dragon nose ring wound about with spells of submission.
Verity herself also carries on in the proud Lynne Murray tradition of lusciously curvy female characters. In addition, half-dragon, half humans point up yet another important motif in any and every book by Lynne Murray - sympathy for the downtrodden and discriminated against.
Fun and sexy, as are all of Lynne Murray's books, this wonderful fantasy romance also speaks to the many of us who harbor hidden and forbidden desires that somehow, somehow, just might become reality if we magic them into being.
