An Alisa Release Day Review: Sunshine in the Dragon’s Heart by Jaime Samms

Rating: 3.25 stars out of 5

When Sunny retires to the northern Ontario wilderness to mourn his parents’ deaths, he’s hoping the change of scenery will afford him some peace and quiet.

His hopes are soon spectacularly dashed.

In self-imposed exile, dragon Emile runs across the Fold between his dimension and Sunny’s—and right into Sunny’s arms. Centuries out of touch with human culture, bright, beautiful Emile incinerates any hope Sunny had for an ordinary existence. With dryads and water sprites coming to life all around them, Sunny can’t deny the magic Emile brings to his life—or his heart. But that same magic leads the unrelenting dragon who would keep Emile captive right to them. To save his love, Sunny will have to reach deep and find some magic of his own.

This is the ultimate story of people from two different worlds coming together.  Sunny finds Emile on his new property but feels the need to protect and keep him.  Emile is trying to escape from being forced into a situation he never wanted and finds acceptance with Sunny.

Sunny is surprised by his own quick acceptance of Emile in his life since he hasn’t wanted to be around other people since his parent’s deaths.  Emile doesn’t want to bring back the dragon’s of the past though there is another trying to push it and he’ll have to find his own strength to stop it.

I loved Sunny’s dedication to the plants and creatures around him and how he easily accepted Emile and the magic that came with him.  I liked the Emile found the place he was meant to be and live his life.  I liked this story but at times felt like I was being bounced between Sunny and Emile and I would have to go back to read a few pages to make sure I knew what was going on.  The only other thing that threw me off was the timeline, I am not exactly sure over how much time this book took place but it would seem to be a short time but it would talk as if it had been a longer time.

I love the cover art by Tiferet Design and the visual of Emile.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
