Meet the Author

I love a good book, strong cup of coffee, and my laptop. I want a book to take me away, the coffee to keep me awake during my travels, and my laptop to make sense of all the ramblings in my brain. My thoughts may be jumbled but when I write them out they make sense, I hope.

I live in a small Arizona town with my husband of 34 years and my two spoiled dogs. I have a hardback, autographed book collection that would make any bibliophile drool. Love is where my heart is so I write romance with happy endings but I don't mind killing off a good character or two to keep things interesting.

You can find me on the Fang Chronicles Blog and Facebook.

    Short

    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.

    This is the first book in the Fire Chronicles series by D'Elen M

    This is the first book in the Fire Chronicles series by D'Elen McClain.  I had not heard of the author when I saw the book on Netgalley, but thought it looked interesting as I am a sucker for a good dragon story.  

    The story begins from the point of view of Angelos, the daughter of Hera, grand daughter of Zeus as her mother curses the four remaining dragons that she did not slaughtered due to something happening involving another daughter and one of the dragons. They don't go into details, just the curse. To be honest, I was very confused by this set up and it didn't make sense until much later in the book, and I am guessing we will find out more later in the series.

    The premise is that the four remaining dragons each are give a chance every 100 years, to claim a virginal bride. The four dragons are staggered with 25 year intervals between there claiming. Basically every 25 years, women between the ages of 17 and 21 are left untouched innocent under threat of entire family annihilation, for a dragon to claim a bride.  This year is Bastian, a red dragon and he claims Acasia.  

    Bastian is a bad tempered, ill mannered dragon with a pissy demeanor. Acasia, on the other had, had gotten all the claimants drunk the night before and ends up throwing up on Bastian's claw when she wakes in his "eating" tower.  He keeps waiting for her to cry and beg and plead, like all the others that have come before.  She keeps waiting to be killed horribly and gives him nonstop attitude and sass.  The made an interesting couple and watching them learn about each other and fall in love was fun. I gave this book 3 stars.

    A new take on an old tale.  Just what do dragons do with the virgins they claim?  And just why do they need virgins?  Read this book and find out.  Acasia has been raised as a virgin sacrifice for the dragon.  Not something she aspires to be but she is just one of many so probably won’t be chosen.  Hah! Just her luck she is.  Pity the poor dragon.  They live forever and humans have a pathetically short lifespan.  And it seems like this chosen is going to give him a hard time for the entire time she is alive.  This is a fun sweet sexy tale with more to come.

    Dragons Don’t Cry by D’Elen McClain
    5 out of 5 Stars
    What could be better than a super snarky, smart, attractive, young woman from a realm where claiming brides are chosen every 25 years by great hulking dragons to be selected after she purposely wore a used dress hoping the bad luck it was supposed to represent would cast off the ugly beast?! It’s when she becomes the bride of said beast and he bellows and roars and refuses to call her anything but “stupid human female” and she throws up all over his foot and asks to be eaten on several occasions.
    Acasia and Bastian are such similar personalities, each boils over quickly in love, anger, passion, and possessiveness. When she becomes his bride not knowing anything about dragons or their ability to shift into men, she accepts her fate but is determined to maintain her pride. While Bastian is heartbroken from his previous wives under Hera’s Curse, he can’t allow himself to bend to his new bride’s will or fall for her beauty.
    Full of laughs, intensely hot romance, fantastic character development, heartbreak, amazing twists and turns that you can’t even fathom and such a broad range of time periods and references this is one book you won’t put down! I cannot wait to see what Ms. McClain has in store for her readers next and I would highly recommend this book!

    Thousands of years ago humans made peace with the dragons from a

    Thousands of years ago humans made peace with the dragons from another realm. They came to an agreement that every 25 years the dragons could claim one virgin bride to return to the dragon realm. After a night of drinking with her friends, it is time for Acasia to stand next to them and face the dragon who will make his choice at the claiming. The idea of the claiming sickens Acasia, but when the red dragon makes his descent and lands in front of them, she finds herself drawn to him, and without hesitation, she steps forward when he calls her name.
    Dragons Don’t Cry was a very fun read. I loved the fantasy, the romance and the wit. Acasia was a fun character. She wasn’t afraid to back down and her sarcasm, humor and teasing made the story so much better. Bastian has this brooding, grumpy quality, but with Acasia we find this fun, carefree side to him. I could almost imagine him rolling his eyes at her every time she has a smart comment.
    I wish there was more detail to the story, just to make it a little longer, because I enjoyed it so much. It was really good, I just wanted a little more. I really hope the series continues to follow Acasia and Bastian or we that we get to see more of these characters.
