Meet the Author

I'm a paranormal junkie! Give me vampires, werewolves and don't forget the romance. I've been reading vampire stories for thirty years and yes, that was way before they were popular. Robert McCammon and The Wolf's Hour got me hooked on werewolves as well. Now angels, demons and even zombies (thought I would never go there) fill my bookshelves. I also write new adult and erotic romance under Holly S. Roberts.

Less than 90 pages. Story ends with "to be continued". Very rushed. It read like a lot of the story was left out. Interesting take on a much done subject. It was unique and could have been wonderful. Felt totally ripped off at $3. Won't buy this author again.

I liked this book. It was different with a dragon shifter. I usually read vampire or werewolf books. Liked how the dragons collect shiny stuff lol. So four male dragons are left, they need to find a mate every century because of a curse put on the dragon race. This dragon doesnt want a mate but they end up falling for one another...storyline is fun and gets you involved. Will the curse be broken for this Dragon? Or will his new mate leave him before the century is up?

Shows up at about 120 pages, but sometimes you have to turn the page a few times before the page number changed....so could be longer. Altogether great read. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

This author deals with the hard topics such as quality of life verses death, duty becoming empathy, and jealousy becoming compassion, all during the main characters' courtship. Heavy stuff for a romance, but she does a fine job pulling it off for a satisfying ending with hope for the future. **My copy received free for honest feedback and read with B&N's TTS functionality for visually impaired powered by Android TalkBack. Thank you!

The story starts and never quits unraveling the tale .I love hearing both sides of the story . Wouldn't it be nice if we could talk in our heads to our spouses? On second thought.... I loved the story. The characters had compassion and depth. I need to look for the next book. Keep up the good work, D'Elen!

I liked the story, but I felt the relationship between Amy and Marcus was forced upon them. I know that a lot of times because stories are limited that the characters have a quick get-to-know-you phase that quickly turns into love. But This one felt like she stepped into his house already in love with him. I love the way they act, and communicate with each other. I think if the story was longer, and more spread out, it would have easily been a 5 star!! I did like it enough that I would read the next in the series.

The story was limited on depth of character. A lot of repeating from the others perspective. Good starter. I hope the next one is more detailed and has more character defination.

I love a book that makes me cry and laugh and this book hit the spot. A lot of magic and romance, but some old world touches, some new world additions, lots of snark, male alpha ego and I was totally enraptured! I can't wait for the next one. This author is new to my collection, but this series will get it's own shelf on my Nook!

A MUST READ for all dragon lovers. I recommend Dragons Don’t Love by D’Elen McClain to anyone who loves fantasy and enjoys some adult situations. The sex scenes are often humorous and I would not label this as erotica. I love dragons, so when I saw this cover and an opportunity to read Dragons Don’t Love, the story of Bastian and Acasia, I jumped at it. Hera cursed the dragons after wiping out all but four males. Each will have their chance to find their soul mate, once very hundred years. Her daughter, my sister, was dead because of Drakon, a dragon, but Angelos thought it was wrong punish them all and would do what she could to watch over them. The claiming brides, women between he ages of seventeen and twenty one, appeared for the dragon to make his choice. Acasia is now on of them. When the dragon came, Acasia marveled at its strength and beauty, was drawn to it, thinking, it’s mine. Acasia is a nerd. Instead of dreaming of a man, like the other girls her age, she is fascinated with mathematical facts and figures. I loved the scene where Bastian is playing cards and learns of just one of Acasia’s many talents. She is not a lovey dovey person and I can relate to that. Acasia’s fiery personality and verbal assaults had me in stitches. I loved her playful manner with man and beast. Me thinks she will rule the dragon before all is said and done. My heart went out to Bastion. As a dragon, he is immortal. He claims his bride and each dies, leaving him alone again. Bastion vowed not to let another break his heart. Dragons Don’t Cry and he wouldn’t, but Acasia is different from the others. Would she win his heart? The vivid description of the dragon had me marvel at his beauty and her puking episode almost made me upchuck. I laughed at his sexual discomfort as a dragon and a man. I laughed out loud, when she wouldn’t beg for her life, but told him, “Eat me.” I loved when she punched him in his bossy dragon nose. Predictable, but that’s okay. I am very curious to see where it goes and am loving reading the story to find out. Dragons Don’t Cry is written with humor and makes me smile. From sad to happy, savage to sweet, a fun and lovely fantasy romance. I loved learning about Bastian and love through the innocent child-like eyes of Acasia and watching them both grow and change, as the characters developed more fully. All of a sudden a vampire appears…and other shapeshifters. Very interesting. Awesome. A fantastically original story of dragons that leaves me breathless waiting for Dragons Don’t love, Laryn’s Story. I received this ARC for review in return for an honest review.

You will truly fall head over hills in love baby and the adults Dragons. I rated this book Five Stars ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿and Four Flames ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿!! Would have like to give it 100 Stars Dragon's Don't Love (Fire Chronicles Book 2) by D'Elen McCain: This storyline starts with Laryn who is a magnificent Blue Dragon who is so miserable after he steals Bastion's bride and even through he return her Bastion was still mad at him and so was Acasia so when he begs to see the egg Acasia had gave him rules.
