Dead Sexy Dragon is a quick, hot read. Stig is a dragon shifter who is going into his phase. A period of intense mating instincts! FINALLY! Men get to go through that shit instead of just the women! Hee hee!
Cora, Stig’s late best friend’s little sister, shows up on his doorstep. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Only Stig needs to stay away from her. He wants her. He’s wanted her for years. Now that he’s in heat, that’s bad. Very bad.
This short and compact story did a pretty good job of introducing us to the world of dragon shifters and their history. It also introduced us to the age old war that dragon shifters and knights have been embroiled in. While we got some of the history, I definitely would have liked more on that. I would have liked more tension with regards to the feud and danger they were in. Hopefully we’ll get more in the following books.
The tension between Cora and Stig added to the story. I like the way the tension was built. That was a very nice touch. I just wish the tension had been extended to waking hours, not just dreams.
I also like the Cora didn’t just accept all of this. She had some problems with it. That made it all the more realistic.
Ms. Lopez has done a good job of bringing us into her dragon world. She added some things I’ve not seen before with dragon shifters while staying true to the legend of dragons that most of us know. I’m really hoping these grow into full length novels instead of staying novellas. I would definitely like more from them. The potential is there for a full length novel. I’m looking forward to the next one in the series. Love me some dragon shifters!
