Wednesday Random Recommendation...(18)
Heart of the Dragon:
Searching for her missing brother, Grace Carlyle never dreamed she would discover a secret world populated by mythological monsters or find herself facing a sword-wielding being whose looks put mortal men to shame.
But there he was, Darius en Kragin, one of a race of shape-shifting warriors bound to guard the gates of Atlantis, and kill all travelers who strayed within its borders.
Now Grace's life was in his hands, and Darius had to choose between his centuries-old vow and the woman who had slipped beneath his defenses and stolen the heart of Atlantis's fiercest dragon.
First published in 2005, this was the first Gena Showalter book I ever read. And I'm so glad I found it because I would have missed out on so many other great books she has written! Heart of the Dragon is the first book in her Atlantis series and I loved the characters of Grace and Darius, they complimented each other well and the romance was hot and steamy. Choosing to allow Grace to live after she stumbled into the Atlantis gate was just the beginning in his decent into love.
I invite and welcome anyone interested in participating to post their own "Random Recommendation" (original post) on their blog (and include a link back to this blog) and join in the fun! Some books might not be very recent reads, but I hope that just helps these (sometimes forgotten) books earn a spot on your own bookshelf!
