As the only eligible female dragon shifter of child bearing age, Cerya Vasiliev is betrothed to a man she doesn’t love. To make things worse, she’s fast approaching her time for breeding. Her only hope is to escape during the Monster Ball. But when plans go awry, she’s reluctantly rescued by the only man who makes her heart ache and her pulse race.

Talon Alexeev gave up his right to claim Cerya as his mate upon learning of her engagement to his cousin, the leader of the Drakur, a man he admires and respects. He’s managed to keep his distance and built a wall around his heart. But when he discovers the intoxicating female in the early stages of mating heat in a ballroom full of eager males, both monster and human, he jumps in without thought to protect her.

Hiding in close quarters from the males in pursuit, Talon’s dragon must resist Cerya’s call to mate or risk betrayal of kin and kingdom.


I am a die-hard fan when it comes to the genre of Paranormal Romance. So, when I got the chance to read Dragon’s Bride penned by Darah Lace and published under The Wild Rose Press brand (October 30, 2017). I thought what the heck. It’s a paranormal, has romance and it’s about dragons. First, Dragon’s Bride (Monster Ball) is short only 69 pages, so a very quick read, depending on how fast you read. Character building was nonexistent. However, the romance between Talon and Cerya was hot and short. Once the coupling was complete, three maybe four paragraphs later the book was over.

The book could have been better if the story was a full-length novel and not a novella. Otherwise, I enjoyed my thirty minutes.


I love to here from you, if you decide to read this book or have read it.
