I am a lover of paranormal books and I love that this series is about dragons, which are not written about all that often. Amber Kell’s Dragon Men Series was an original take on the concepts in these types of stories as well as the pairs and their dynamics. From the rules in the Mating Hunt, to bond that Tor had with the Space dragon Baroy that affected his eyesight, to how not all dragons shift some just bond with a dragon, and the touch healing ability that some had, Amber creates something different in this dragon world.

In book one, Mate Hunt, we have Prince Joriah, who is the youngest son to the High Galactic King, who is well loved by both the people on their planet and his father. The King banishes Joriah to Dragait, the dragon world and the mate hunt, because there is a rumor going around that Joriah’s eldest brother, Detrius, wants him dead and this is the only way he can think to save him. Shortly after arriving Jory meets Val, High Duke, who he connects with so strongly so much so that Val believes him to be his mate but they have to wait for the God of Mating to allow the tattoo of the real mate to appear on his body. In the meantime, to meet the rule of the mating hunt that the participants have to actively search for a mate by having sex with at least two candidates, Jory with regret also meets Rai, King of Dragait. With Val, Rai, and his rescued Queen Black Dragon bonding with him will Jory be well protected against those that want him dead? And who in the end will be his mate?

In book two, Mate Test, we have High Duke Torrance Zelan, who we met in book one through Jory, being sent to negotiate mineral rights by the King (Jory’s father) but really is really the king is setting up to take the mate test. The king feels it's time for Tor is move on from the death of his lover two years ago. Tor is also dragon-bonded as a child so he can only see what the dragon Baroy’s allows him to see which means he is blind. Southern King Naron knows it’s probably wrong to trick Tor into the mate test but he knows Tor is his fated mate so it’s something he is more than willing to do in order to have him.

In book three, Mate Dance, Raven is a well-known intergalactic ballet dancer who is starting to lose his passion for his craft. One night after a dance he rescues a little girl, Trisha, in an alley sitting next to the dead body of her grandmother. She is terrified but since Trisha loves Raven and wants to be a dancer herself, she won’t go anywhere without him. They find out that Trisha is the daughter of Prince Kaemon even though he has no idea she even exists. Through one act of kindness Raven finds himself falling for the Prince even though he doesn’t think he is worthy of him. But of course Kaemon knows Raven is his mate and won’t stop until Raven knows it.

In book 4, Mate Healer, Lian is a touch Healer that was sent to the planet to research why the dragons are having fertility issues. He is happy to help the dragons but doesn’t let anyone close to him and definitely doesn’t want a relationship with anyone due to his own parents’ violent end. Upon arriving he gets lost on his way to the clinic when he meets Nevair Dragon breath the religious leader for the planet. Lian is fighting to find out the truth of the fertility while dealing with someone that doesn’t want him to find out the true reason of the mystery. And someone else is trying to stop the mating between Lian and Nevair through all means possible. Will they find the culprit before it's too late?

Even though each book in this series is considered a novella the author does fantastic job at developing the story and all the characters. You never feel like something is missing or left out. It does make you wish they were longer but only because you fall in love with the characters! Amber creates characters that are at their core are both strong and soft and by doing this she creates stories that are sweet but colorful, dirty but romantic. After reading each book I have to say that although each one has its own strong suits the more I read of the series it only got better with each book she writes.

Author Bio

Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.

When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life, he told her to go have fun.
During those seconds she isn't writing, she remembers she has children who humor her with games of 'what if' and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name—two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.

Despite her husband's insistence she doesn't drink enough to be a true literary genius, she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.

She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres.
