Dorsey is a schoolteacher with psychic potential forced by
the Drelconian elders to bond and mate with their lords.
The Drelconian females are all barren, leaving the males to
choose fertile human women. They want to use Shannon to
produce a new form of hybrid dragon with psychic abilities,
even if it means passing her around to all the lords. When
her powers are triggered by the Drelconians, Shannon begins
to psychically visit Ryuu, the exiled leader of the silver
dragons, in lucid dreams and bonds with him. Ryuu is
determined to claim her, even though it means risking his
life. Shannon is not capable of bonding with any of his
brothers, nor does she want to after finding Ryuu. Will
Ryuu make it in time to claim and save Shannon?
erotic sex from Accidental Mates: Ryuu, and
this could almost be a young adult novel. Plus the sex
didn’t feel natural or real. It felt like Shannon and Ryuu
were being forced to be nasty. This story is written in the
first person perspective and the narrative and dialogue
didn’t work either.
care for Shannon. She starts off as feisty but it’s all
talk. She’s placed in situations where she’s the damsel in
distress and has to be rescued. The one time she does act
on her own makes her look stupid. She never develops her
abilities. Her constant teenaged comments on how “hot” the
Drelconians are despite all being arrogant jerks made it
harder to take her seriously since she’s in her early 30’s.
The more attractive female characters are not portrayed in a
positive light by her. Lastly, I found the bad Drelconians
more credible than Ryuu. He’s sexiest when he’s getting
“cozy” with Shannon.
Accidental Mates: Ryuu fell flat on
characters, style and delivery. Some scenes were unclear or
were down right inconsistent. For instance, one of
Shannon’s student’s has silver eyes like Ryuu, but later on
she says they are blue. Another point is a scene where
Shannon is being attacked and it’s not clear if she was
actually assaulted or not. The only redeeming point is that
this work can be read as a stand alone. By the time I
finished the story, I wasn’t particularly interested in
Shannon’s and Ryuu’s HEA.
