Audiobook Review: Dragon King (The Bride Hunt, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dragon King by Charlene Hartnady

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blaze has loved and lost before. He’s been down that slippery path before and never wants to go there again. Especially not with a human. 

It’s a great pity that he has no choice. The problem is that he’s the Fire King, ruler of all four kingdoms. Blaze is expected to have heirs, and the sooner the better. He’ll have to take a human as his mate, one that will bear his young, but he doesn’t have to love her. Blaze plans on handling it like a business transaction. No love, no emotion, no problem. 

This book can be read as a standalone but would be best enjoyed as a part of the series (Start with Chosen by the Vampire Kings). No cliffhanger!

Narration Type: Dual Narration

The heroine: Roxy – she recently came out of a bad relationship, though she is an optimist who works with her friend in a bakery and still wants to find love. So she signs herself up to date a vampire, but she doesn’t care what species she ends up with, she just wants to find real love.

The Heroes: Blaze – he is the fire King and the ruler of all four dragon kingdoms. He didn’t want to join the bride hunt, because he has been hurt before, but he has to do what he must for the good of the kingdom and that means he needs a mate and heirs. Since female dragon shifters are not fertile, he needs to be involved in the hunt and catch one of the human women.

The Story: Blaze thinks that love complicates things, so he plans to take a human mate in the next bride hunt. Dragon shifters are not known to humans so in the past few hunts, they have abducted women to fill their bride hunt. They no longer want to do that, so they made a deal with the vampires to get some of the women that signed up for the vampire dating program. The women don’t know what is going on when the vampires take them to another place and tell them they have been selected for a new program for shifters.

The story in this book was a bit different than the first two where the women were abducted and kind of thrown into the hunt without knowing what it was all about. This one, the women signed up for it and were told all about the hunt before it happened. They even got to go to a dinner and see the male dragons the night before the hunt takes place.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Stella Bloom and Troy Duran. These are two of my favorite narrators and they always do a great job. I love Troy’s deep and captivating voice and Stella Bloom always sounds feminine and intelligent and does a great job. I liked both Blaze and Roxy as people. They both had been hurt in their past relationships and take that baggage along with them. The romance good and the intimate scenes were quite steamy.
