I'm a fan of the paranormal genre, but to be honest, this book fell flat for me. You got a glimpse of the "world" where the story takes place, and a glimpse of the main characters, but nothing really seemed well developed for me. The heroine's motivations weren't terribly clear at the outset (and even at the end, I'm not sure I understood them). The attraction between the hero and heroine is more or less instantaneous, as is the consummation of that attraction. There's no real build up or tension between them. The villein featured heavily in the book, but there was no complexity of character for him. He was simply a stereotypical villein. If you compare a good book to a portrait, then this book is merely a sketch. You can see the outlines, and what the story intended to be, but the colors and complexity just aren't there.
The reader, however, did a very decent job of narrating the story, keeping the reader involved even when the writer dropped the ball.

I had this book on my wishlist for so long that I forgot why I originally put it on. So, I downloaded it as a change. Big mistake. Nothing seems to work together. The paranormal (vampire/dragon) mythology is quite different than usually written, yet the differences do not seem to work and they are not well-developed. She has not created a coherent universe -- which is important to do if you are going to leave the usual vampire mythology behind.
The erotica is fairly ho-hum and the character interaction (hero to heroine and heroine to villain) are melodramatic and two dimensional.
Save your credits. There are many other established authors in these two genres that do it much better.
