Author: Kara Lockharte

Release: June 12, 2018

I like to pretend I’m just another immigrant trying make her way in New York City…but I’m not.

You may know of my family from stories of an older age. Across all nations, all cultures, my family was once worshipped as gods, cursed as demons and shunned as otherworldly creatures.

Reality? I am shen, but the worst kind of shen there is.

One who would rather pretend to be human than to rule them.

One with no magic.

One hunted by the immortal monster that killed my parents.

And now, I just discovered how grandma found us refuge in America, how she thought she could save me.

She betrothed me – to a dragon.

The Lick of Fire is a mini-series collection from twelve best selling authors. Enter this supernatural world of fire and heat, magic and adventure, and get lost in everything DARK, delicious and FIRE.

BETROTHED TO THE DRAGON is the FIRST in Kara Lockharte’s DRAGON LOVERS mini-series. It is the 11th series starter within the Lick of Fire Collection and stands alone from the other books. You do NOT need to have read any other books within the Lick of Fire to enjoy this story.


Review By Bubbles The Book Pimp

first read by this author and first in a new series

Sophie is a Shen ( a species of magical being that can take many forms ) raised by her grandmother following the death of her parents. She is however hiding in plain sight working at a museum, pretending and passing for human, despite her truly powerful grandmother and parents she has no power.

Despite her lack of power she is wanted and tracked by the Devourer, an entity that has killed and destroyed many beings in its mission for knowledge.

But Sophie’s time for hiding is coming to an end…on the day she finds out her Grandmother had bartered her off for protection and refuge into america. Sophie is adamant that she will not marry anyone for protection, especially when it turns out the hunky guy at the museum is actually her potential husband. It also turns out that her grandmother wasn’t as honest regarding Sophies Powers or her future either.

I am not normally a fan of novellas, but this was such a great book…

It was action packed and really gripped me from the start. I loved the interaction between Sophie and Hunter.
My only bug bear would be that I would have adored a longer book, just to get better clarification on the Shen and Dragon species as a whole and for more moments between them ( Sophie and Hunter ) as a couple to allow for a more natural progression to their relationship.
I wanted to read more of her sassy stubborn nature and his dry sense of humour.

I will be reading the second in this series as the set up of future characters is too tempting not too. plus I’m looking forward to seeing how and where the series is going to progress to story wise.
