Found abandoned as a baby and brought up in a children’s home, Lily Palmer has no clue that she is the last of the Dragon Princesses and destined to be mated to a king. But when she wakes up one night to find her apartment invaded by a stunningly gorgeous, but totally deluded madman, she can no longer ignore the dreams which have haunted her life.
Exiled on Earth, and trapped in human form, the dragons have waited two thousand years for the only person who can open the portal between their world and this one. Now they have found her and Malachite Smith has one job—to deliver Lily to his King. According to dragon law, only the King and the Dragon Princess together can open the portal and take them home.
But neither Mal nor Lily are prepared for the overwhelming attraction which flares between them. Or for his reluctance to hand her over to a king he despises. Can they stand as one and challenge the old ways, even if it means destroying his people forever?
Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of 9-5 work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.
Everyone knows that I love Dragons. I’ve written a dragon book myself. So I was super excited to start reading Nina Croft’s version about dragons.
This story was really good. It follows Lilly, the daughter of a dragon princess and the only person that can open a porthole to another world, for all the dragons that linger around us in their human forms, to go back home. There is some really good attraction between Lilly with her and Mal, a dragon. His job wasn’t easy because he really did had strong feelings towards Lilly, and wasn’t to keen on giving her over to the Vortigen, The King of the Dragons, who is the mate for Lilly. That was fun to read. To find out what Mal is going to do at the end.
I like the plot, sorcerors that also wants Lilly and how she got abducted and how Mal tries to get her back. It’s fully packed with action, sizzling weapons, adventure and an awesome romance story, It’s written in third person, jumping from Lilly to Mal, so we get a bit of both these characters and I think Nina has done a very good job with it.
I do have to worn everyone, that there are some swearing in this book. It did put me off at times. She should also have got someone to proofread her novel one last time. Then it would’ve been perfect for me, but all in all, I really liked the Daughter of the Princess
I wish you all the luck with this Nina.
