Book Review : Claws and Contrivances

Book Review : Claws and Contrivances

After being completely and utterly charmed by Scales and Sensibility, I didn’t think the Regency Dragons series could possibly get any better—I was wrong. Claws and Contrivances is a pure and utter delight, brimming with everything readers could want—a wonderful heroine, dragons, a romance, and a magical ending.   From the very beginning of the novel, I immediately adored and related to protagonist Rose Tregarth, younger sister of Scales and […]

Book Review : Spellswept

Book Review : Spellswept

I honestly debated reading Spellswept, as I did not enjoy the rest of the Hardwood Spell Book series as much as Snowspelled.

Book Review : Snowspelled

After reading and loving Scales and Sensibility, I immediately picked up Snowspelled by the same author–and I was not disappointed.

Cassandra is outspoken, daring, and sharp. She is Elizabeth Bennet if Elizabeth weren’t at all concerned with propriety, had […]

Book Review : Scales and Sensibility

Book Review : Scales and Sensibility

Sometimes a novel manages to feel like it was written just for the reader, ticking off all the boxes of everything we could ever want to read. Scales and Sensibility was the case for me, and it very much felt like the author wrote it just for me, somehow knowing of my abiding love for both Jane Austen and dragons and then writing this purely fun and magical tale:   […]
