All Polly ever wanted was the freedom to do as she pleases. Picturesque Dragon Island is a nice change of pace – until it’s not.
The more time she spends in the same village, the more it feels like a cage. She yearns to find something new, something exciting.
She doesn’t count on that “something” being a man.
Or a dragon.
Guardian of Water, god to his people, Ruarc has lived lifetimes alone. His existence revolves around his duty of caring for the island’s wildlife and shifters. He’s content.
Until he meets a human woman who doesn’t belong.
She’s unreasonable. She’s unpredictable. She’s meant to be his mate.
How can he tame a woman so wild? He can’t—not if she tames him first.
This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.
Title: Dragon Guardian of Water
Series: Alphas & Alchemy: Elemental Shifters #3
Author: Keira Blackwood & Eva Knight

My Rating: 4.5 stars
‘Dragon Guardian of Water‘ is the third title in the ‘Alphas & Alchemy: Elemental Shifters‘ series and this story brings us two very different people who will delight us with laughter, tears, and danger – as well as sizzling chemistry. What more could I ask for, right?
Polly is… unpredictable. She can’t stand to be tied down in one place for long, she always needs to be on the move looking for that next adventure or the elusive thing that might make her want to stay somewhere. She’s stubborn, opinionated, and Ruarc’s mate. He is, in many ways, her exact opposite. His love for the island and its residents is obvious to all. His heartache over the damage being done to the island is easily felt. He might have been a loner but he knows how to care, how to give love to something, or someone. Polly is about to rock his world in so many ways – and maybe, if life is kind, his mate will want to stop her wanderlust ways and stay with him.
I love the way these two amazing authors manage to weave not only a heartbreaking plague into the storyline but laughter as well. Life is a balancing act, no one lives in a void. So bringing all the emotions into play only makes this world more real to me. So, kudos for that particular talent, ladies, it is evident.
I loved the interplay between Ruarc and Polly. He’s so calm, so peaceful – she’s so hyper, so energetic. Again, they balance each other. Once again, I was glued to the Kindle throughout ‘Dragon Guardian of Water‘ – and I loved this couple, perhaps most of all that I’ve met so far in this world. If you love a really good Paranormal or Shifter Romance that is full of laughter, danger, sexiness, and tears then you’d feel right at home in this story, this series.
I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
