Book Description:

“Dragons do not exist.” Ella Hixson shrieked as the mythical beasts dive from the sky shredding her car with their impressively long talons and sending her careening across the road in an attempt to avoid the being flambéed. Escaping her car, she grasps the car door in order to prevent herself from tumbling down the slippery embankment. Pouring rain soaks Ella’s interview suit and her dress shoes as she searches the sky for the attacking beasts to find nothing but clouds heavy with their payload of rain.

Hallucinations, relationship destroying fights with her only surviving relative-her mother, and, thanks to a bodaciously bosomed, bottle-blond, jobless, Ella needs the universe to cut her a break.

Be careful what you wish for.

Circumstances conspire and Ella’s mundane existence evaporates when she discovers she is Drakkon, the hidden heir to an ancient dynasty, and she has an enemy who would see all the Drakkon race enslaved or dead.

No more ordinary days for Ella as she learns what it is to be Drakkon, tries to save a world she knows nothing about, and still be home in time to feed her dog.

I love Dragons! Everyone that knows me, will know that about me. So when I got the information of hosting Hot Flashes, by Leila Gaskin, I didn’t think twice.
I think Leila has a very huge and clear imagination when capturing the dragons.
Her synopsis is awesome, that is one of the reasons I grabbed the book. The premise of the story grabbed my attention immediately.
I loved it for what it was, but I’m going to be honest, I wanted more.

I couldn’t put the book down when it was about Ella, but I struggled when it came to the Drakkons and the other world. I wasn’t so much into it.

Ella is a strong character, with flaws. I think plenty of people will connect with her. I loved Kaie, even though I’m not a cat person.

Like I said, it’s a strong premise, but I wasn’t so much in love with the story as I wanted.
I’m going to give it a four, because the writing style is beautiful and I did connect with the characters

I wish you all the luck with Hot Flushes and this series. There is a beautiful giveaway, so please take part and maybe you will be one of the lucky ones.
