Tee is Vegas’s favorite casino hostess, ready to grant her high rollers their every quirky wish. But when her own wish to financially help her Paiute Tribe finally comes true, she decides to double-down with lady luck and go for a hot hook-up with her sexy boss, Leo. Unfortunately, Tee’s about to find out why their romance is such a long shot—Leo is a shape-shifting dragon.
Leo needs a proper dragon mate to save his waning dragon form, and despite their magnetic sexual attraction, he knows Tee is anything but proper—or a dragon. But when threats arise from Tee's tribe, Leo’s protective instincts kick in. Can he give up his dragon form for the woman he loves—even if it means shortening his life? Or has Tee finally had enough of having her heart dragged around?
 
 
 
5 stars*****
This is book two in this lovely dragon shifter series... but can easily be read as a stand alone! Even though I really liked book one, I do believe that book two is my personal favorite. It's not hard to explain why... Leo, our dragon love interest was a walking twin of my favorite hottie... Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Because I had the image of him in my head through the whole book, well... smiles and happiness... all the way! :)
Book one centered around a female jewel thief and in book two the author takes us down a completely different route by using Tee and her native American heritage as the focus. I really liked this plot... and I loved Tee and her dedication to helping out the children on the reservation.
The one thing I do like about this series is the idea of dragons finding a clever way to mask themselves in the center of Las Vegas! Anything goes in Las Vegas... and it's a fun setting to play around with.
The male dragons are always on the hunt for their true mates. If they do not find their mate, then they lose their ability to shift to dragon form and eventually die. Even if they find their mate, she has to accept the mate bond of her own free will. So, the dragons have to be on their best behavior!
Tee and Leo were a great match... they had amazing chemistry together both as lovers and friends. It was easy to root for their HEA.
This is a shorter book than most at around 200 pages... so, a nice choice if you're looking for something you can start and finish in a day.
I am a fan of this series and will definitely be on board for book three which I think will involve a Russian Ice Dragon... hhhmmmm... that could be fun! :)

Serial Blog Tour:  Stop One!!

Any SJP fans out there?
 
We Gen-XYers don’t even pause—hell yeah! The bad dating of my twenties seemed benign compared to the antics of Sarah Jessica Parker and her posse on Sex and The City. When I saw  Sarah  had done a “zippy-fun” 5 minute video interview with Vogue answering 73 questions, I was intrigued. 73 questions, in 5 minutes! (No, don’t go google it now! I’ll give you the link at the bottom)

The first time through the video, I was charmed and entertained. The second time, I felt the challenge of rapid-fire repartee calling my name... I wonder how I would answer all those questions?

Drum roll please….

For your snappy reading pleasure, I transcribed the questions and broke them into serial blog posts for my release tour. Many thanks to KT for hosting my 1st segment!

Let’s do this thing!

Q1: Favorite Movie?
A: The Italian Job, Thomas Crowne Affair.
I love heist movies, bonus points for a happily ever after! The Bourne Identity movies and some of the Bond movies would be right up there too.

Q2: Favorite recent movie?
A: Pitch Perfect.
This is my go-to diversion movie, and my kids loved it too! I’m not a repeat movie watcher, but I bet I’ve seen it 5 times!

Q3: Favorite Hitchcock movie?
A: None.
I hate scary movies. I can’t even do the movie trailers, like that “Mama” trailer they have out now is the worst! The last scary movie I watched was the Blair Witch Project. OMG. My husband and I took a camping trip afterward, and I was up ALL night, hearing things go bump in the dark.

Q4: Favorite TV show currently on?
A: Orphan Black, close second Blacklist.
If you haven’t seen the BBC’s Orphan Black – it is amazing. Tatiana Maslany  portrays 11 crazy, diverse clones. She won a golden globe and critics choice award and she so deserved it. A great Femme Fatal like show with a hottie love interest . 

Q5: Book I plan on reading?
A: Night Child, Lisa Kessler
Lisa is my imprint sistah and we share a release birthday today. One of my Street Team members told me NC was the perfect story, and the ending made her cry. Ahhh, can’t wait!

Q6: Book read in school that shaped you?
Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
I read C&P when I was 16 years old. I had just left my rural home on a full scholarship to Phillips Exeter Academy. At Exeter, I didn’t fit in. My clothes were wrong. My southern accent branded me a not-very-smart peasant. A boy broke my heart and gave me Mono. I wasn’t at all prepared for the rigorous academic requirements. I was miserable. I remember looking at a huge snow bank and thinking I could just fall in and go to sleep forever. It was a very bleak and difficult time in my young life.
I was assigned C&P around that time. At first, I had to force myself to stop every few pages and say out loud what had just occurred, otherwise my eyes just drifted over the pages, and I remembered nothing. I was sick, and exhausted, and furious. Soon I started identifying with the morally ambiguous Rodion. I’d always been a bit of a goody-two-shoes at home. Rodion’s schemes and world view were delightfully tainted and ultimately mind broadening.

I still keep a Dostoyevsky quote in my Bible:

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” (BroKar)

Q7: Book you read you never think about?
A: The Odyssey, Homer

Q8: Scale of 1-10 how excited about life are you now?
A: 9. I recently turned 40 years old. I love 40!
How about you? I challenge you to pick 1 question from above and answer it in the comments. As a bonus, I’ll give a free kindle copy (one per person) of my new release STOP DRAGON MY HEART AROUND to 1 randomly picked answerer.

You know you want to try!

All my best,

PS> Here is the SJP Vogue Interview I promised (link-- http://video.vogue.com/watch/vogue-diaries-73-questions-with-sarah-jessica-parker )

 
“I told you we’d see celebrities here!” Trixie exclaimed and squeezed the brunette woman’s bare arm.
“Celebrities?” Tee asked in confusion.
“It’s that hotty superhero with the hammer.” Angie pointed at Leo. Her mouth hung open to show a brass tongue piercing.
“Thor,” Trixie whispered and smacked her gum again. “I bet he has a big ole hammer too.”
Beside her, Leo smiled and shrugged, like he had some super hero secret he couldn’t share.
Ridiculous.
“This is not Thor,” Tee said with an uncomfortable laugh. Next to the diminutive young women, she felt gawky. She straightened her stooping shoulders and stretched to her full height. Then, she gave the two a smile she hoped conveyed patient helpfulness.
Leo was tall, even taller than her, with blondish hair that brushed his shirt collar. His eyes were deep set like the actor’s, and he definitely had the forearms and muscle packed in all the hunky places. But he was so much more than some hammer-throwing cartoon.
He was Leo. He was real, and she’d wanted him from the first moment he’d walked toward her across the Bellagio foyer. Then he’d smiled at her, and her heart had done a ridiculous loop-de-loop and she’d been lost.

  2. :D Love finding out all these cool things about you Susannah! You will love Night Child. I finished it at about 1:30 this morning (after my review posting spree lol) and it was so damned good. I've read the whole series though and you may need to read it all to really enjoy it.

    Q6: Book read in school that shaped you?

    For me this took a lot of thought because I loved everything we read with few exceptions. Even The Odyssey left some interesting marks on me. Ultimately the one I realized really shaped me was Romeo & Juliet. It sounds stupid but it wasn't the story so much as my experience with it. We read aloud many parts in our class and I remember this on popular guy who was reading as Romeo basically volunteering ME to read Juliet. I was so shy and frightened it was some kind of joke (and secretly I really wanted to do it) and when we read it was ...liberating on a level. I was able to shuck the mantle of the poor girl who didn't have nice clothes, that was shy but smart, and put myself in the mind of Juliet (I also later read as Romeo in the death scene). A few years ago I found out that guy that volunteered me to read is now an actor who's been in a few shows I like and even one of the POTC movies.
