Despite his handicaps outside his natural habitat, water dragon Remy “Champ” Champlain fights to protect Queen Margery from those who plot to quash her damaging news reports by silencing her...forever.

He can never have her, but he'll protect her with his life.

After newly shifted sky dragon Queen Margery is rescued from smugglers by water dragon Remy Champlain, she debates whether to flesh out the story that nearly got her killed or embrace her royalty and build a court of protectors and studs. Sparks fly between Remy and her. He’d love her to give up her job and settle down…hopefully with him…but he can’t fly and she can’t swim, so their relationship can never get off the ground.

This finely woven story about emerging dragon queens is amazing. The authors unique writing style draws the reader into the mystery behind the missing women and wondering how Remy and Queen Margery could possibly have a relationship with their dragons being polar opposites.

Her attention to detail gives the reader a front seat to beautiful imaginary and there were times I wish I could fly like one of her dragons. It was interesting how she dealt with Remy since he is a water dragon and has no hands or feet so he can't fly to protect his Queen Margery.

At times I wanted to shake Margery because her reporter part of her personality just couldn't be quiet...but this part is satisfactorily resolved by the ending and I was pleased with how it was dealt with.

I give this 4 stars.
