The morally questionable King of the Dragon Realm is searching for a cure to a disease that affects all the offspring in his bloodline, making each generation physically weaker than the last. Desperate for an heir who will be able to protect the throne, Lucy looks to be the perfect candidate to provide the King’s offspring. The Chosen One, lost in a realm of lust, evil, and a power-hungry King – she needs to escape.
Torn between a loyalty to all he has ever known and a growing desire for Lucy; can Amos find a way through this? Will the consequence for them be too much to risk, and what would it mean for the entire Dragon Realm?
Chosen by the Dragon had everything I look for in a shifter romance; a heroine who can be tough, but doesn’t mind her lover being dominant, an alpha male that will do anything for his woman, really hot sex scenes, and characters that grow by the end of the book.
As far as character growth goes, we get to see some from Lucy right away when she dumps her boyfriend, who treated her horribly. Over the course of the book we see Amos grow into something more than just a bodyguard who does whatever he is told, no questions asked. And I really enjoyed the Oracle, who was very amusing, and Zara, who was sweet. I hope both of them are in the other books in this series.
This book is very fast paced, and although it’s not a long book, Selena Scott wrote a complete story. I was very happy that Scott wrote the epilogue the way she did. We get a final glimpse into their lives, and she sets it up perfectly for the next book in the Dragon Realm series, The Dragon’s Touch, which is going on my TBR pile.
