Review: Dead Sexy Dragon (Dragon Heat, #1) by Lolita Lopez


Okay! I admit it... I thought this book might fall into the rather full genre of paranormal romance with no plot but lots of sexy time. Whoo! I was pleasantly surprised. The author does a great job of minor world building, mythology, and introducing warring factions.
Stig Wyvern served and deployed with Cora Cardenas’s older brother over sea. Coming home, he establishes himself in a gorgeous home safe with old magic, and surrounded by forests. One night when he is about to start an agonizing cycle in which he has to keep himself locked away from others, Cora bangs on his front door. Due to poor choices made by her brother before his death, Cora has herself in a tangled mess and is running for her life. Keeping his attraction under control with codes of honor (you don’t sleep with a friend’s kid sister), Stig finds himself housing Cora in the guestroom while he locks himself in the basement during his dragon cycle.
Drawn by curiosity and a very lusty dream, Cora creeps down and eventually finds Stig’s secrets and becomes entrapped in his world. Due to a centuries old feud between Knights and Dragons that started with a forbidden love, the Knights are hot on the trails of Stig and using Cora as bait.
This story was a very fun romp and I enjoyed that storyline and action that kept the story moving quickly until the end. I enjoyed both Stig’s and Cora’s characters and their love for each other. Looking forward to the next in the series.

While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.

As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.

Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.
