When the man who wants Noah’s blood kills her sister, she can’t let the death go unanswered. She teams up with the strangely compelling Noah, and discovers he’s not all man and has a few tricks of his own.

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review Noah, a dragon who had been alive

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    Noah, a dragon who had been alive for at least 2,000 years, is wise. He knows that he can get more accomplished by keeping his cool. Lila has a fiery temper, but even so is more than capable of taking care of herself.

    Noah is in love, but knows that Lila is broken by her past. Yet he has all the patience in the world to wait for her. Lila is afraid to love, to be dependent on another person, especially a man.

    I adored Noah and Lila in this story. Their personalities weren't similar but they still meshed quite well. And Lila's strength. She wasn't always right in her strength and attitude, but she never backed down. And Noah, instead of being intimidated by this, stepped aside and let her be herself. He never once pushed her aside, when she told him to let her handle a situation, even if he knew she was going to make it worse. It's not often you see a capable and strong female lead.

    My second encounter with this author¿s work ¿ and this book was

    My second encounter with this author’s work – and this book was better than the first. The basic premise is a former dragon now saxophone player who meets his match in a martial arts instructor with some heavy family issues. Add in some mystery, some fantasy, and pages of sexual encounters that are both steamy and stirring, and the story unfolds in layers before your eyes.

    The characters are developed in a ‘need to know’ basis, with just enough detail to provide you an outline that allows you to fill in the colors according to your own preference. Again, the author has created a world that is similar to the one we live in, and seamlessly integrated multiple elements from the worlds of fantasy and faerie tales to create a new tale that begs to be told.

    Laden with humor, twists and bits of information and folklore that drop like pearls throughout the story – this is certainly one well worth a read, and I hope for more in this series.

    I had previously purchased a copy of this book prior to the author providing an eBook copy for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Dragons Need Love, Too!

    Reading Indie Authors is like digging through a pile of plain rocks and finding the occasional golden nugget. Author Edie Ramer is golden. Her latest release, "Dragon Blues", begins a series of paranormal romantic suspense. Noah is the Dragon/Man simply trying to live an immortal life in peace and quiet. His closest companions are his cat and his saxophone. Lila is a modern woman with an abused past who's learned to aggressively take care of herself. Ramer weaves a tight plot to bring these two together with enough peril to keep it interesting. The core of the piece is true romance-two wounded beings who find completion in each other. For me, the best part of "Dragon Blues" is the writing style. It's sharp, swift and clean. Ramer artfully uses a lot of fragment sentences that bring a crisp rhythm to the manuscript, almost as if she listened to various musical pieces as she tapped out the story on the keyboard. It will be interesting to see how her Dragon myths unfold. And, oh yeah, the love scenes are smoking. But what else would you expect from a fire-breathing Dragon Man?

    An Exciting Start to a New Dragon Shifter Series

    I love how Edie puts a modern-day twist on a medieval tale against the backdrop of a soulful Nashville. Noah and Lila are tortured, interesting characters by themselves, but the romance makes them sizzle off the pages. This wonderful author dives into the emotions of her characters, exploring every spectrum of their being. Also, she *knows* how to make an unforgettable villian. Trust me, you'll remember this monster long after the story has ended. If you're looking for an entertaining,believable read, definitely pick this up.

    A Beautiful and Soulful Love Story

    I simply love the way Ramer writes and the heart she brings to her stories. The beautifully crafted characters, the musical connections and the thought-provoking themes, such as those of redemption, rebirth and change, make this story memorable and hard to put down. Another wonderful read by this talented author!
