  • Hannah
    I really liked and enjoyed this book. I'm rating it 4.5 stars. The only thing that was missing was that i needed more romance. I loved both main characters. The plot was interesting and unique. Beautifully written and executed. I love this series and can't wait for the next 2 books of the series. I also hope we will get books for some of the side characters.

    I preloved this one…I knew that I was going to love Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon (great name, but so bloody long). I have a sweet spot for dragon shifters. OH NO!! I just gave a spoiler!!! Well, I don’t think it was too spoilerish. After all, I’m pretty sure it would be a physically impossible nightmare for an elf to make love to a dragon (shudders). So, straight up we know that we’re dealing with a fierce, hot and high-flying d...

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Eight Simple Rules For Dating A Dragon is a story that I have been looking forward to for a YEAR and so to say that I was excited is putting it mildly.

    ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review.Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon is a dual POV from Gwennore (aka Gwen) and Silas. Gwen has a talent, just like all of her adopted sisters. With one touch she can tack down the cause of an illness and heal it. Oh, and she also found out that she can hear dragons and trees AND speak back to them.Any book with shape shifting dragon hotties can count me in to read it. Before I dive into this revie...

    5 - "Rejected again..." Stars!This series just keeps getting better and better. I loved the previous two books in Kerrelyn Sparks’ The Embraced series, but Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon was even better (and that is saying something). And I will be honest one character was solely responsible for that; Silas Dravenko. The man’s smile was a weapon… and he knew how to use it. This was one of those books that you start, and pretty much ...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    Very entertaining! This has a great mix of fantasy, paranormal and historical romance. You have dragons, elves, shifters, trolls, talking trees, royal families and more. The author has a good sense of humor that shows through her characters and great vision in her world building. This series would make a fantastic movie series. I could easily see this world and it's many fascinating characters through her words.It will depend on the reader if thi...
  • Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
    Eight Simple Rules for Dating a dragon starts three years after the last installment. You won’t be lost if you haven’t read the others, but you will get more enjoyment if you read in order. I had a lot of fun with this novel. The series is amazing and one that keeps surprising me. I’ve been looking forward to Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon for a year. We finally get to visit the realm of the dragons and the people who live in this h...
  • Jennifer
    ARC received for reviewThis series is amazing. I'm loving every book. This one starts several years after book two. You won't be lost if you haven't read the first two, but they will make this one more enjoyable. Silas and Gwennore are great together. Lots of drama, passion, angst, action, adventure, and dragons. Oh, and trolls, yes they do exist. The side romance with his cousin, Dimitri, and Annika was a nice bonus. That stupid Chameleon is bac...

    4 Sparks Fly StarsEight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon is a standalone and is part of the Embraced series. You can read the books out of order. I really enjoy these books, even though it’s a slow burn historical romance book. Well, kind of historical, it’s not entirely accurate since the author writes with a little slang, but it adds good humor value. The thing about slow burn books is all the tension! Gah, you read like hundreds of pages o...

    *I voluntarily read this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else's*This is the third book in The Embraced Series. I’ve read every book in this series and would highly recommend reading them in order. This author’s books are seriously addictive, captivating, funny and action packed. Gwen has been scorned by people for her looks and heritage. She’s judged by others due to the actions of her kind. Who will see her true beau...

    This story takes place a little after book two and now it’s Gwennores turn. After having the telling stones picked for Gwennorr she knew her time was coming but until then she lived with her sisters. Life was good she had almost all the people she loved around her and it couldn’t have been better. Except for the people who hated her because she has elf blood. Her family loved her deeply but others thought less of her. because of her lineage. ...
  • Sissy's Romance Book Review
    Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by Kerrelyn Sparks is book Three in The Embraced series. This is the story of Gwennore and Silas. I have read the previous books (and Loved Them!) but feel this is easily a standalone book. Gwennore is and elf who find illness and help to cure it..make her skills very valuable. Silas is a dragon whose lands are plagued with illness and a curse. When a young girl goes missing Gwennore tries to locate her. Sil...

    This is another great addition to The Embraced series! As an elf, Gwennore is constantly beging rejected and ridiculed. She longs for a husband and children but is very much aware that her hopes will never be fulfilled. Instead of a family of her own, she lives with Luciana, her adopted sister, and cares for her children. While she loves them all, Eviana is the most precious to her. So when a dragon swoops down and snatches the three year old, Gw...
  • Marta Cox
    Four and a halfThis series about 'embraced' women who have grown up together is just so imaginative and fun. In this book it's Gwenmores turn to step into the limelight and boy does she have a huge problem. When the young princess is snatched by a dragon ( told you it was huge ), Gwenmore tries to follow but then she's dropped only to be saved by another dragon ! What makes everything worse is discovering that as an elf Gwenmore is considered to ...
  • MsChris1161
    Terrific story that grabbed my undivided attention right from the very beginning. Author Kerrelyn Sparks sets a playful tone through the personality of the hero, General Gorgeous, which really endeared the book to me. Gwennie was equally lovable as a true heroine in her own destiny. There's sexy dragon shifters, intrigue, jewels, sexy dragons, romance, sweet little girls and did I mention dragons, to steal any romance readers heart. As if the Gen...

    Gwennore is the sister, of all the five, with the most uncertain future: she is at least part elf as shown by her pointed ears, and is constantly subject to snide, sotto voice (or not) comments about her heritage. Elves are the least accepted people in the kingdom: warlike and secretive, with a coldness and single minded purpose that makes them fearsome in battle. While her sisters (and their children) all adore her, and her ability to both diagn...
  • Bambi Unbridled
    I'm a huge fan of fantasy romance, and there doesn't seem to be many traditionally published adult fantasy romances being published these days. So I'm always very excited when a new book comes out in this genre. This third book takes place about 3 years after the previous book, So I Married a Sorcerer. To recap for the series: In the fantastical realm of Aerthlan, the Embraced are born on the night of the two moons eclipse. This special birth giv...
  • Christa
    This book was an absolute delight!It seems like lately I’ve been reading books where the guy is a jerk to the heroine, she is feisty but eventually gives in no matter how crappy the guy previously treated her. There’s usually some type of mating bond, since it’s a fantasy or PNR, and it explains away his jerky alpha male behavior. If you want to read a book like that, this one is not for you. Silas knows what he wants, he goes after it, and...

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I’m getting the paperback because sometimes it is more cost effective to get paperback!!!The cover is steamy! I love it!This is the 3rd book in this series, and it is for adults only due to violence and steamy content. I highly r...
  • Showie Ford
    Okay so, I made a mistake. I did not read the first two books in this series before I got this one (Thank you, Netgalley!) I definitely should’ve read the first two first. The story was excellent. And even though I had missed the first book, which is when most of the world building is done by any author, I absolutely fell in love with this world. It was a bit confusing to keep the various countries right at times, but I genuinely think that was...

    Eight simple rules for dating a dragon is the third book in the Embraced series. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from cover to cover. I almost read it all in one seating but my eyes started blurring and my husband kept asking if I was going to turn off the light soon, so since it was 1 in the morning I figured I better finish it later.I really liked how the relationship between Gwen and Silas developed over the course of the story and it wasn't a ...

    *I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*Let me start out by saying that I am sooooo glad I saw this book. Before I requested it, I decided to read the first book in the series (look at me being smart) and I fell in love with it. I read the second one and devoured it in a night-- I stayed up to finish it. So, I requested this one and when I was approved, it took most of my willpower not to read and review...

    Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon is the third book in The Embraced series by Kerrelyn Sparks. I liked first two books and was looking forward to the next installment. This book centers around Gwen and Silas’ story but we also get to revisit all the sisters and other characters from previous books. I did enjoy it as much as the first two books and I particularly liked the fact that the main hero, Silas, is a dragon shifter. This series has...
  • Lori Quick
    I loved this book. Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon is the first book by Kerrelyn Sparks that I have read. It is the 3rd in the series and I am looking forward to reading the first two. This book has a little bit of everything from Elves, Trolls, Dragons, sentient trees, romance, all that and more. If you like fantasy and romance, this book is for you.

    I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon was my first time ever reading a “romance” novel. I was little hesitant, especially at the sight of the cover, which is not my general cup of tea. However, to my surprise and delight, this book read much more like a fantasy novel than an actual romance no...
