The Delight

While a dragon is hot, the sex was hotter. Being locked in a basement with a dragon would be any girl’s dream.

Red Hot Dragon by Lolita Lopez is a short, hot romance that at one point kind of left me confused if it was about dragon shifters or snake shifters.

Avani is the last of her race of dragons and coming upon her mating period. Researching the perfect match to procreate with, Avani finds her match is with a male her family has a blood feud. Griffin is her best hope of saving her race of dragons and just so happens to be going into his mating period on the same day.

The two set aside their feud, but don’t come to terms on how to raise a child if it is conceived. The two take together like fire on fire. And within a short time they know they are soul mates. But when Griffin’s cousin doesn’t return his calls or texts, they go to investigate and we learn more about Avani.

So Avani is more snake that dragon. She can’t fly, nor does she breath fire. Venom is her big power and while that was interesting, I am not a serpent lover and really was off put by it. Avani suppresses her animal side a lot and must come to terms that it is a part of her for her to get along with Griffin.

Griffin was more of a straight forward character. He protects the dragon race, wants to be in his child’s life and knows he loves Avani long before she does. There is fighting, lovemaking and a hint of the next story.

Do you consider a serpent or snake to be a dragon species? Why?

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • Hmm I know I’ve read one like that before where the dragon was a variation and not the typical 4 legs/wings/fire breather. But for the life of me I cant think of which book it was now. I thought it was interesting. I’m not big on snakes but remember thinking the way it was done it was a nice twist. I’ve got this one on my wishlist and curious to see how she did it.

  • I guess they are both part of that scaly, forked tongue, cold-blooded family, but I could see how her animal traits might not deem dragonish particularly if she doesn’t make fire. Now you’ve got me intrigued for my turn to read it.
