Overview

Sometimes what you see is not what you get . . .

American-born heiress Cate Cooper would never have believed her sexy, stalwart English husband Grayson could be a monster of epic proportions until he shifts into a fire-breathing dragon right in front of her eyes. After several near-miss encounters with the dragon who almost kills her, Cate traps the beast using her own magickal skills as a spellcaster and an enchanted chatelaine left to her by her grandparents. Her husband has one year to battle the dragon within before she gives up on him for good. Too bad her besieged heart doesn’t agree this is the best plan of action. Cate embarks on a journey of discovery where she must learn that sometimes what you see is not what you get and monsters come in far worse forms than fire-breathing dragons.

During the year Grayson Cooper is held captive, he fights for his life and his marriage while his best friend and legal partner, Michael James, moves in on his wife. According to the world, Grayson disappeared without a trace a year before, along with millions of dollars. Only Grayson and Cate know the truth of where he’s really been and the battle he’s waging. Grayson must earn back the love of his wife and win her trust again before a murderer who’s stalking her steals away everything he’s ever lived for and any hope they’ve ever had for a happy future together.

This is a sexy paranormal romance where rekindling passion takes on a whole new meaning.

    I liked the direction this story took. It is my first time reading one of  Mackenzie's books so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Who knew there is a dragon shifter union-so to speak. Then they are mostly friendly and living among humans. I personally love dragons. Just  ask the 40 or so that live on my shelves. This is part of a series and I hope I can find out that Grayson and Cate get to fix up their difficulties. If you like dragons you should add this book to your collection.

    This novella is short, but it is packed with action and drama. I liked that the leads were already married. They met fell in love, and now they are dealing with the aftermath of his lack of control over his Dragon. This book is a set up for a series of novella’, and while there is a lingering mystery the ending is not a cliffhanger. I liked Cate and that after a year of dealing with a Dragon when Grayson didn’t seem to be truly remorseful she didn’t take his crap. I look forward to the next installment but to be honest because of the length I won’t be reading it until two or three more stories are released. This would’ve been so much better if it was a “bundle” of three novella’s.

    This book provided by NetGalley for an honest review.

    My Thoughts:
    There are only a few instances where I read a novella and I am blown away by the story. I was pleasantly surprised to be absolutely blown away by To Have & To Hold. The story, the characters, the plot, and the ongoing conflict fully immersed me in the story. To Have & To Hold felt like a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

    Grayson and Cate's struggles were palpable and I appreciated the intricate level of detail Lucas provided in getting them over their struggles. The story was not rushed but contained a natural, fluid, and realistic progression. The scene where Grayson confronted his opponent gave me goose bumps. He and his dragon knew that they needed to protect Cate at all costs so his struggle to reign his dragon in was worth it in the end when he, via his dragon, exercised control to do just that.

    I give Ms. Lucas much credit for crafting a vivid compelling story from beginning to end.
