Dazzled is a tantalizing, sexy, tension filled romance that if you happen to love dragon shifters you will not want to miss.
Sebastian is an unbelievably wealthy man, the owner of a museum that showcases the past of his family and early California. He is also a dragon shifter who has spent years searching for his family’s stolen treasures which tie into his dragon powers, and his life itself. One of his best finds was hiring Lacey as a curator at his museum. Her love for the items she authenticates and displays is equal to his own love for these items in many ways. She’s is hiding a sexy body beneath clothing that is beyond professional, but that hasn’t stopped his interest. So far his need for her professional expertise has overridden his desire to make her one of his many conquests. Sebastian will never again give his heart or his trust to any woman… but sex, that he can do very well.
Lacey loves her job, so much so that she is constantly ignoring the attraction she feels for her boss’s boss, Sebastian. There is simply something about that man that draws her and she knows she’s fighting a losing battle against his playboy ways but she’s holding back as long as she can. When Sebastian finally ignores his good intentions and makes his move neither understand just how life changing that will be for them both. For Lacey is his mate, and he’s sworn to never trust another woman, ever.
Dazzled is gripping and sexy, there is no doubt about that. There is also hidden dangers that Lacey doesn’t understand, and that will blindside Sebastian in his most vulnerable part, his heart. Watching these two fall for each other in every possible way was a delight. And if I cringed when Sebastian reacted badly, then it was because I knew what he didn’t. Evil will always play a part, Lacey has some big decisions to make but in reality it truly is a decision only her heart can make.
I enjoyed this story very much, it definitely has heat, heart and enjoyable characters. I’d recommend this story and the series for any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader. You’ll find a thrilling story, likable characters, high steam rates and a lovely romance.
