THE SEXIEST DRAGON OF THEM ALL

Adopted at birth, Ivy Morales always suspected she was more than human. Still, she keeps the outlandish thought to herself-even though she can't ignore her powerful dreams of an ancient blood feud . . . or the darkly erotic turn of those hallucinations. Kidnapped in Mexico for her visions, Ivy has only one chance to escape: find the wickedly sexy man in her dreams.

Welsh dragon shifter Ian Madoc doesn't understand the strange dream connection he shares with an unknown, beautiful woman. Yet after the seductive images turn into pleas for help, Ian rushes off in the middle of the night, hell-bent on rescuing her. But will she turn out to be the soul mate he's always longed for . . . or the downfall of his entire clan?

While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.

As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.

Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.

Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues.

The stories up to this point have been HOT and Wicked Dark Dragon is no different. Lopez seemed to deliver more action and danger with this one, which is a lot of fun, but she doesn’t scrimp on the heat and heart. If you like your paranormal romance with a kick (and sizzle), the Dragon Heat series is a winner. It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat one minute, fanning yourself the next and laughing out loud when you least expect it. Full review available at Romantic Reads and Such on wordpress.

I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review, thanks to Netgalley and Forever Books  Wicked Dark Dragon is the third installment in this dragon shifter series. I have been watching this author ever since the first book of this series came out a little while back. And I have been itching to try her out, so when I was given the opportunity to try this out from Netgalley, I was more than thrilled. Now if you are looking for a short and sexy read, love dragon shifters, then this book and others in this series, is the perfect diversion for a lazy afternoon. The story sets off with Ivy being captured, who had no idea that she was nothing more than human with some special matchmaking gifts. Now she is being held captive by a dying seer, who wants to destroy her and destroy the Brotherhood that Mad is a part of. Ivy knows that Mad is her mate and calls out to him to save her, and soon they both learn that the Seer has more plans for them than just keeping them prisoner. What I really enjoyed about this story was how short and sweet it was. I have a weakness for dragon shifters, and this story was such a fun interlude for my day. I just breezed right through this story, and I really enjoyed the author’s writing style. It was very engaging and quick-witted, and the humor is playful. I definitely got some giggles in this one. It is shorter, and I will admit one of my problems with this story was how I never felt a full connection between the characters. There are good remnants of it, but with it being just a little over 100 pages, I felt like it needed a bit more. But having said that, I truly enjoyed the setting and the introduction into the brotherhood, I definitely plan on reading more from this author. Overall a tantalizing shifter romance that kept me engaged from beginning to end. A love story of passion, danger, and mystery. A QUIRKY GEM!!

Ivy had been adopted a few weeks after she had been born. Ivy felt she was different from other people. She dreamed of faraway places. Ivy had also dreamt of dragons since she was six years old. Then Ivy goes to Mexico for Spring Break and gets kidnapped. Lately Ian/Mad is having erotic dreams of an unknown woman. Then he wonders if someone really needs his help and leaves to find her as Mad believes she is his true mate. Mad rescues Ivy from the Knights. Mad is a dragon shifter. The Knights want control of Ivy as she has seer powers. Ivy does realize she is a dragon or that they even exists. Mad had been at Ivy’s birth but after her adoption by humans he continues with his life. A dying seer is holding Ivy captive trying to probe her mind but wants Ivy destroyed. The Brotherhood Of dragons which Mad belongs too. Mad has to get caught to save Ivy and then wait for his brother dragons to rescue them. This was another story where you don’t hate it but you also don't love it either. Although at times it did make me laugh. It was short like a novella so it didn’t take long to read. Mad’s fellow dragons did Mad dirty and I didn’t like that but I kinda understood it but still didn’t like it. I like the characters of Mad and Ivy but felt they fell in love way too quick even for a short story. If it’s lust call it lust and not love. But I did enjoy some of the twists and turns in the story. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

3.75 stars--WICKED DARK DRAGON is the third novella in Lolita Lopez’s contemporary, adult Dragon Heat paranormal romance series focusing on the few remaining dragon shifters in the world. This is Welsh dragon shifter Madoc and university student Ivy Morales’s storyline. WICKED DARK DRAGON can be read as a stand alone but there is a bit of background information required to understand the ongoing war with the Knights (more is revealed in the current story), and the future storylines will continue upon the same path. The novella picks up immediately after events of Red Hot Dragon-book 2. The focus of the novella finds Ivy imprisoned by the Knights. The Knights are an ancient group, humans, who have sworn to destroy and kill every last dragon. Their ongoing war with the dragons finds the current group of Knights going against the rules of combat and entering into territory where they do not belong. Ivy knows she isn’t quite ‘normal’; she has dreamt about dragons since the age of six; and she has the ability to match make and see the future. It is Ivy’s true heritage and DNA that the Knights will use against the dragons and their mates. The relationship between Ivy and Madoc is one of immediate attraction; they are mates but the mating heat has yet to touch Ivy as she is not fully dragon. Enter Mad’s friends and fellow dragons who betray our couple sending them into a frenzy not of their own making. It is the ‘dragon mating heat’ that will draw out the Knights, and in this, the dragons have placed everyone in danger with their underhanded actions and dishonesty towards one of their own. To understand the intent does not necessitate the approval of their actions. Mad and Ivy are likeable characters; there is definite heat and intense attraction. The secondary characters include all of the dragons previously introduced throughout the series. Griffin and Avani ( book 2) are still experiencing the call to mate; and the revelation of someone long thought dead, adds a twist to the Knights’s attempts to bring Ivy back alive. The world building is a little more detailed and developed in book three. There isn’t always room for vast amounts of back history, elements or components in short stories, but WICKED DARK DRAGON reveals more information than the previous two storylines, in this, the reader begins to better understand the who, what and why. Lolita Lopez continues to build upon a history between human and dragons; the ongoing war with the Knights; and the dragon’s need to mate. With only a few remaining dragons in existence, time is running out to ensure a future for their own kind. There are moments of betrayal and revenge; romance and love; and in the end, the storyline ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. WICKED DARK DRAGON is an entertaining storyline; a paranormal romance where another dragon finds his mate; where betrayal comes at the hands of someone you know. Lolita Lopez invites you into her world of dragon shifters. Here’s looking forward to many more stories.
