Overview

New York Times bestselling author Jo Beverley presents a romantic fairy tale in which one princess’s idea of happily-ever-after gets turned upside down...
 
A dragon has invaded Saragond! The time has come for Princess Rozlinda to be sacrificed. She is the designated SVP—the sacrificial virgin princess—and her chaste royal blood will appease the monster and prevent the destruction of the kingdom.
 
Not to worry! A dragon hasn’t eaten a princess in ages. It’s purely ceremonial now. Just a small cut and a little bit of blood, and Rozlinda will have done her duty. She’ll be free at last to cease being both “S” and “V,” and she has the man in mind.
 
But things don’t go quite to plan. Someone kills the dragon, and tradition says that the princess must marry the dragon slayer, whoever that may be. Even if it is the terrifying dragon rider of Dorn himself!

    ¿The Dragon and the Princess¿ is intended as a fun novella about

    “The Dragon and the Princess” is intended as a fun novella about two kingdoms involved in a symbiotic relationship around dragons and sacrificial virgin princesses (SVP). Every eight years a dragon invades the kingdom of Saragond and a ritual must be followed – to the letter. Princess Rozlinda is the current SVP involved in the tedium of training until she receives a vision of a mysterious man from the other kingdom of Dorn, the land beyond the Shield. 
    The dragon has come a year early and everyone is in a tizzy to sacrifice Princess Rozlinda. But this time everything does not go according to plan. 
    The main characters were: Rozlinda – a princess, Rouar – a dragoner, and Seesee – the dragon. There were complicated aspects of the backstory between the two kingdoms and the dragon myth/physiology that didn’t seem well organized in the story. I had to re-read a few paragraphs more than a few times or go back when plot points were better explained to see if things made sense. There were a few times when Seesee ‘spoke’ and because there were not italics in the e-book version I had, making it difficult to distinguish between description, POV, and Seesee ‘speaking. 
    The romance seemed shallow and rushed between the two characters and I would have enjoyed reading more about Rozlinda in Dorn. 
    This story taught me how difficult a novella can be to plot and write a lot of things (character and romance) have to happen very fast. I felt there was a lot of potential in this story and it would have been more successful with a higher word count.
