    Loved, loved, LOVED this book! Amazing writing, fantastic world building, hilarious banter and two characters you could cheer for. It had everything I want in a paranormal romance, plus fantastic cameos from the others. There were moments I gasped and ones where I burst out into laughter. It was so enjoyable and while it can be read as a standalone, I would really recommend reading the other books first. This is easily one of my top favourite paranormal series.

    Gentle giants I loved reading about John and Neridia both are gentle giants. John is used to being large and therefore center strange, but Neridia has always had horrible experiences with being so big. I felt horrible for her. I think the past trauma affects her power as well. Neridia comes from the Greek "Nereides" or sea sprites, which is completely appropriate. I really enjoyed these guys.

    3 stars. Our hero is John Doe, a 7 feet plus "Poet Knight" Sea Dragon who's spent the last 2 years on land trying to find their missing Emperor. I think I liked him better when he was Griffin's roommate who kept burning food. Here, I thought he was a bit too stubborn about taking the newly found Emperor's daughter, who's also his mate, back to Atlantis. And yes, Atlantis is where the Sea Dragons sank into the sea to escape from the Fire Dragons centuries ago! Our heroine Neridia Small is 6'6" and 3 stars.

And yes, Atlantis is where the Sea Dragons sank into the sea to escape from the Fire Dragons centuries ago! Our heroine Neridia Small is 6'6" and have had a lot of trouble looking for a suitable partner who's not horrified by her size. I must admit being a fairly short person, the plight of tall people is not something I'd thought much about, except gawking when I see someone especially tall walking past and thinking he/she would make a great basketballer. But now I do see that they have their set of issues just like those of us who are short. There are some funny moments, like when John's sister asks Neridia for an "air name" that matches her brother and Neridia said the female equivalent would be Jane Doe. I'm not sure if it was ever specifically written who named him and why he owed Griffin his life? Maybe I missed it in the previous books? Anyway, it did have quite an epic battle in the end and a cute epilogue. As this appears to be the last available audiobook for the series so far, I will be putting the next books in my TB "listen" pile for the time being. :)

    It seems that is a good book and a very bad one in this series, after the last one, things were getting better, but this book was incredibly predictable and the character of John was beyond annoying. It had so much potential, the description of his culture and the difference with the other shifters were very interesting, but from the introduction of the new characters, you could see who were the good guys and who the bad guys, again, even if the writer was trying to force you to suspect others, It seems that is a good book and a very bad one in this series, after the last one, things were getting better, but this book was incredibly predictable and the character of John was beyond annoying.

Also, John's ideals get a little too much after a while, you just get more and more frustrated by him, especially when you find out that not everyone is like him. So again, I didn't like the book, and I feel bad because it could have been so good if it wasn't so obvious and annoying. (view spoiler)[John is pretty honor bound, and he has very set ideas, he promised never to take a mate and his life is sworn to the crown's service. The problem is he finds his mate, and at first he all angsty because he can't have her, but his friends push them together, and even if he is all torn up about wanting her, he can't help it. He then finds out that she is the daughter of the lost emperor he has been looking for, and since he is dead, she is the empress, and he decides that since his first loyalty is to her as empress, then it's ok to be with her. He then changes his mind after talking to his superior, and it becomes clear very fast that his boss is the bad guy, but he trusts him and listen to him, despite his own desires or Neridia's wishes. He is so sure he knows what's right, and that his boss can help him when he is not, that he doesn't take anyone or anything else into account. The Sharks Master arrives and tells them that he is not the one trying to kill Neridia, and that he didn't kill her father, but that someone at the palace is behind everything and they shouldn't go there, but John doesn't trust him and ignores him, and when they arrive Neridia finally finds out that John's boss is the one behind everything, including her father's murder, but he threatens to kill John is she doesn't become his puppet Empress. She tries to escape, but doesn't tell John because she knows his honor will force him to try to avenge her, and she is afraid his honor will kill him. She doesn't make it to land before they caught up to her, and when John finds out what happened, he fights his boss, only it turns out that his time on land made John stronger, so his boss cheats, so he can win, and stabs John through the chest, that makes Neridia finally shift, and between her and the Shark Master they kill him. John's friends arrive just in time to save him, and after that Neridia decides to fix relationships between sea and land shifters and decides to spend half a year at the sea, and half on land, so John can stay in contact with his friends.

John is already a character I love because his lack of comprehension or misunderstandings are at times hilarious. Neridia is strong, but she has issues of feeling inadequate with the way people have treated her like she doesn’t belong. As always with Zoe’s books, there is the perfect combination of action, drama, treachery, and romance. I love her style of HEAs. Her books are easy to love if shifters and HEAs are your thing. I highly recommend this whole series to all shifter lovers especially if you love HEAs and Zoe already!

Title: Firefighter Sea Dragon Series: Fire & Rescue Shifters Author: Zoe Chant Designation: Book 4 of Series, Full-Length(300 pages), Standalone Paranormal Romance, No Cliffhanger Reading Platform: Kindle Edition My Rating: Five Captivating Stars***** Be still my heart! I loved, loved, loved this book! I adore paranormal romance and no one does it better than Zoe Chant! I've been a diehard fan for several years and I can truthfully say, I've never read a Zoe Chant book I didn't enjoy. Chant is an incredibly gifted storyteller, a talented wordsmith, and a true master of her trade. Chant excels at creating unique storylines with vividly depicted worlds and beautifully detailed descriptions, then populating her creations with intriguing, larger-than-life characters who will surely capture your imagination along with your heart. And Firefighter Sea Dragon was no exception! Once I started reading, I could not stop. I was riveted to my seat, white knuckling my ereader with my heart fluttering wildly in my chest as the hours flew as quickly as the pages... and it was FABULOUS! But let's talk details so you'll know why I love this story so much. Firefighter Dragon is an imaginative, fast-paced, easy-to-follow, full-length, standalone paranormal romance liberally laced with elements of fantasy. Fortunately for the reader, this story is somewhat longer than the majority of Chant's books coming in at approximately 300 pages, none of which is fluff or empty filler. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with his and her perspectives. The dialogue is smart, well-executed, at times hilarious, and flows effortlessly. Firefighter Sea Dragon is exceptionally well-crafted, developed and edited as are all of Chant's books. I also feel compelled to mention, Chant's books have beautiful covers and artwork which always seem to capture the spirit of the story and its characters, and I truly love that about her work. But I think my favorite component of every Chant story is the characters she creates to populate her fascinating worlds. They are captivating, intriguing, engaging, and no matter how fantastical their alter form may be, whether it be shifter or creature of myth and legend, they are still relatable to the reader with the same challenges and heartaches we experience in our daily lives. I was immediately smitten with the two protagonists of this story, beautiful but lonely conservationist Neredia Small who was anything but small, and handsome sea dragon John Doe aka Walker-Above-Water, Emissary to the Land from the Pearl Throne, Knight-Poet of the First Water, Sworn Seeker of the Emperor-In-Absence, and firefighter for the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service. Wow, what a mouthful but sea dragons have two names, one for land in their human form and another for the sea in their dragon form which is proudly sung beneath the waves and is a compilation of their accomplishments and titles. And sea dragons don't have inner dragons, they have inner humans since their dragon is their true form. Sea dragons are not born as humans like most shifters, but are hatched from eggs as baby dragons! See, I told you this was unique and imaginative, and this is just a small sampling of what to expect in this story. I've read a lot of Zoe Chant books and loved all the characters but John and Neredia quickly became my favorites and truly captured my heart. Their story really played havoc with my emotions. John and Neredia's story just ripped my heart right out of my chest! My heart actually ached for these two characters. I sniffled, sobbed and outright ugly cried through the entire book but, as in true Chant form, I also snickered, snorted and giggled my way to the end. I ran the full gambit of emotions - sadness, heartbreak, anger, and joy. I laughed with these characters, empathized with them, cried for them, and shook my fists in anger at the injustice they suffered... and loved every single minute! Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! In fact, I loved it so much, I bought it. Please allow me to explain. I have Kindle Unlimited so I could have read this story for free but after reading the sample, I knew this was a book I wanted as part of my permanent library so I could read it again. Chant's books are all enrolled in the KU program but I still find myself buying them all. What can I say? Yes, they're that good and I always feel like I get my money's worth! Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does include some steamy, dreamy love scenes. If you love unique paranormal stories filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, adventure, lies, deceit, betrayal, angst, passion, romance and always a happy ending, then Firefighter Sea Dragon is calling your name! There have been three releases in this series prior to this one and several of the characters from the previous books do cross over and appear in all the books, but you can still read them in any order. Why am I telling you this? Because I highly recommend this entire series! They're all fabulous! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book! I can hardly wait for the fifth book of the series which will be Hugh's story. I'm dying to discover what kind of shifter he is! So bring it on Zoe Chant... inquiring minds want to know! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read! Sea dragon John Doe would never understand humans. No matter how much time he spends with his land walker friends and fellow firefighters from the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Atlantis, he longs to return to his underwater home in Atlantis. Two years is too long to be away from the life he so loves under the sea. He understands his mission is of utmost importance and has diligently searched the bays and harbors of England's coastlines as well as the nearby lakes and rivers to locate the missing sea dragon King of Atlantis, Pearl Emperor, Commander of the Waves, and ruler over all the shifters of the seas. Sadly, John has found nothing in those two years... just as he'd found nothing when years earlier he'd thrice circled the globe, scouring the oceans and seas singing for his mate, but his songs had been answered with nothing but silence. And sea dragons only mated with other sea dragons so finding a mate on land was not even possible because sea dragons did not generally mix with other shifters or humans, and only lived in the sea. He'd finally admitted defeat and only then was he allowed to pledge his fealty to the Pearl Throne by swearing vows of service and celibacy, guaranteeing his loyalties could never be divided between love and duty. He'd long ago accepted his fate and now lived only to serve the Pearl Throne. Having failed to find any trace of the missing Pearl Emperor, it was time to return home, just as soon as he fulfills his obligation to his oath-brother by standing with him at his upcoming wedding which was to be held at a resort located on the shores of Loch Ness, one of the few bodies of water John has not checked, at least not yet. So imagine his surprise when the waters of the Loch reply to his song, whispering secrets he could never have anticipated. Yes, there's something nearby... or rather someone... but it isn't the Pearl Emperor. Oh my! It's a beautiful woman and she's his mate. What? He'd searched and sang for her but she'd never answered... and she claims to be human... one who can't even swim! Not possible! So what does a loyal sea dragon Knight, one sworn to celibacy and forbidden to take a mate, do now? Neredia Small desperately longs to find love and acceptance but her dream of finding happiness seems more and more impossible with every passing day. It's hard to fit in when you're six and a half feet tall with skins as dark as the night sky and literally tower above most men. She loves her job as a conservationist but she's so tired of her lonely existence, and even more so since the deaths of her mother and father, occurring only a few months apart. Neredia has no other family which is why she's tried finding companionship through online dating sites and, yet again, felt the heart-wrenching sting of rejection after another disastrous first date. Once the men see bountiful curves, and towering height, they run for the hills, never to be seen or heard from again. It's heartbreaking... and futile. As if this latest humiliation isn't enough, the universe seems to be conspiring against her, determined to bring her to her knees, literally, when she's mugged outside the tavern near Loch Ness. The thieves try to steal her pearl pendant, the only thing of value she owns, not because of its monetary value but rather its sentimental importance since it was given to her by her father just before he died. Thankfully, a dark and very large seven-foot-tall good Samaritan suddenly immerges from the waters of the Loch to rescue her. Oh my! This guy is not only insanely hot but he's also insane, like looney tunes crazy, because he declares he's a sea dragon Knight of Atlantis and she's not even human, but the daughter of the missing and now deceased Pearl Emperor which makes her the Empress-in-waiting. Huh? And if that's not enough, he also claims she's his mate but they can never be together because of his vows of fealty to the Pearl Throne. Utterly and totally ridiculous, right?!? But when old secrets come to light and an unknown enemy surfaces making deadly attempts on her life, Neredia realizes there may be more truth to this Knight's claims than she originally thought, and knows she needs answers to her questions about her parents... and herself. But can John Doe, her Knight in shining armor, protect her from those who wish her dead so she can finally discover the truth? We'll see!

I struggled with either identifying or sympathizing with, let alone admiring the FMC, Neridia, however. I prefer strong female leads - physically trained, intelligent or mentally resolved, and/or emotionally strong. I felt Neridia had none of these strengths, yet, unbelievably, she was teamed with a very strong male lead and was our female “heroine.” Because I so enjoyed the rest of the characters and the story, I mentally kicked Neridia’s butt a few times, hoped she would finally get her act together, and kept reading. Spoiler: she finally does in the last chapter, or so. Firefighter Sea Dragon is a lite shifter romance story with main characters who find their life “mate,” and persevere through hardships to gain their HEA. There is sexual intimacy between the 2 main characters that falls somewhere between sweet and steamy (3 of 5). It is just one aspect of their committed relationship, not merely casual sex, and not the main emphasis of the story. Strong profanity is used, but I believe less than 5 times. This series is not suitable for young readers, IMO. I believe readers who prefer lite rather than dark paranormal novels, couples who must work together to achieve their HEA, and a touch of humor & fantasy in their books will enjoy Firefighter Sea Dragon. I loved the underwater portion of this novel. Sea Dragon can be read as a standalone, but the characters from the earlier books do make appearances. I recommend the previous books in the series.

    I read romance because I strongly believe in soul mates, love at first sight, and loving the same person forever. I also believe that a person's honor should only ever come second to their loved ones. Why ?Because I would break any oath for my children and my Husband. (view spoiler)[ Naridia could not have been John's true mate, because he didn't love her more than his honor. In fact he kept leaving her one way or another again and again, letting others talk him into rubbish decisions, so bad tha I read romance because I strongly believe in soul mates, love at first sight, and loving the same person forever.

In fact he kept leaving her one way or another again and again, letting others talk him into rubbish decisions, so bad that I wanted to stop reading a few times, but held firm because normally I enjoy ZC's work. Honestly, how the heck could she ever trust his feelings for her, he didn't respect any of her wishes, forced her into a situation that she did not want, took her to a place that made her miserable. (hide spoiler)] I also read them to get that warm and cuddly feel good moment at the end when the H and h come together and everything works out, what spoils that for me is when I simply can not see them living Happy ever after, the most I can say about Naridia and John is they will be happy for now, but god forbid John has to choose between his family and his honor...

    My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com. John Doe has been a part of this series from the beginning. He also had a large part in the previous book with Griffin, as he was an oath brother to Griffin. But we still didn’t know much about this shifter. He goes by the name John Doe, because you can’t say his name in human form. Sea dragons are an elusive group of shifters. They don’t come out on land often.

He also had a large part in the previous book with Griffin, as he was an oath brother to Griffin. But we still didn’t know much about this shifter. He goes by the name John Doe, because you can’t say his name in human form. Sea dragons are an elusive group of shifters. They don’t come out on land often. They are big on honor, or at least that is what they say. Neridia Small just wants to be like every other woman. But at six foot and six inches tall, she stands taller than most men and that has made dating difficult for her. This story starts out with her going on date with someone from one of those matching sites. She fudges just the one number on her profile (people do that all the time, right?). She also arrived early, so that she could be sitting down when the man arrives. Things start off pretty well, until she stands up and that’s where things go all wrong for her. This was another great addition to the series. I really enjoyed learning more about John Doe and his species. I really liked his sister. Neridia was a great addition to this group as well. She is a strong woman, who has had it hard with the loss of both of her parents recently. There are quite a few things that happen to her in this book too. I continue to enjoy this series and look forward to more books that follow these firefighters of Essex County. Narration I continue to enjoy Lucy River’s narration of this series. I love all the different accents that she is forced to do for this series. In this book, she had all the different sea creatures that must be voiced, many of which are speaking mind to mind. It was very clear when they were talking mind to mind versus speaking out loud (which can sometime be hard on audio, since in print they usually italicize those parts, but if the narrator doesn’t change something, it can be hard for the listener, but that isn’t the case here). **I like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Every story in the Fire & Rescue Shifters series has been an amazing read, but John and Neridia’s romance is simply riveting. John has always been a man of honor, perhaps a deeper code of honor than his friends ever imagined, after all they were land walkers and he was of the sea. So when John finally discovers his mate, his friends do not, cannot understand how his honor binds him to a certain protocol. A Knight is nothing without his honor, and breaking his vows would mean setting aside his honor – something he is incapable of doing. Neridia has been sheltered, protected by her family from the rest of the world. Now after her father’s passing she is truly alone in the world and her attempt at finding companionship has gone horribly wrong. Neridia stands out among humans, striking, and tall she is often the brunt of giggles and pointing fingers. When she meets John there is a spark between them, and possibilities that she is truly afraid of pursuing. The plot of Firefighter Sea Dragon is so finely woven it was a complete pleasure to read. I’ve enjoyed all of the stories in this series, but this one has a special feel to it that draws you in a bit deeper than you imagined possible. I’d love to talk about it, but to do so would give away spoilers so I’ll simply say that this is a story that you’ll want to read. There may be times that you’ll want to shake John for sticking to his honor, or comfort Neridia when she doubts herself but you will be engaged in their story. I would highly recommend this story and this series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader who enjoys an intricate plot, strong characters and revisiting with old friends who have already had their stories told or will soon. This is a story well worth your time. I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Neridia Small just wanted to feel like she belonged but being a beautiful, curvy tall woman that was kind of hard. She wanted to find a man who saw the real her not only the physical aspect. What she found was someone unexpected. John Doe, a Sea Dragon shifter and a member of the East Sussex Fire & Rescue firefighter team. He never understood how the humans no matter how hard he tried. John was a Knight from the hidden underwater city of Atlantis. He was on a mission to find the ruler of all sea shifters, the Pearl Emperor. He met some great friends while in his quest and even though his friends found mates. John knew he could never have one cause as a knight it was forbidden to him especially if she was human. Things changed for John when he saved Neridia from a mugging. He knew the instant he looked it her eyes that she was his. There was a well kept secret surrounding Neridia's true identity. When John found out about it, his quest took on another yet life changing meaning. Danger was lurking around his mate and he would protect her, come what may. Loved how closed all the guys were, it was like one big extended family. The way they all tried to make John change his mind about leaving was well done. Griff and Hayley ( FIREFIGHTER GRIFFIN ) finally tied the knot. Neridia didn't want to claim her birth rights and that shocked John but they worked things out. Those they thought were their enemies turned out to be friends while friends turned out to be their greatest foes. FIREFIGHTER SEA DRAGON is the fourth book in Zoe Chant's FIRE & RESCUE SHIFTERS series. It was heartwarming and intriguing. 5++++ ****I received a free copy from the author, without any obligation to review.****

    John Doe is a firefighter. He's also a knight-poet sea dragon from the undersea city of Atlantis & he's been sent to dry land on a mission. A mission somebody doesn't really want him to complete. Since he could not find his mate, he took the vows of celibacy & service to the Pearl Emperor & the undersea realm. But the emperor has disappeared & the Knight-Commander has sent John to find him or any clues as to his whereabouts. What he found was his mate & a whole lot of mystery & trouble.

But the emperor has disappeared & the Knight-Commander has sent John to find him or any clues as to his whereabouts. What he found was his mate & a whole lot of mystery & trouble. Neridia is a conservationist near Loch Ness. She's also very tall. Much taller than the tallest of human men, so she finds it very hard to fit in. She got her height from her father but he & her mother are both gone now & Neridia is all alone. Until the night of her latest disaster of a date when she was surrounded by men who wanted to hurt her. She thought she was done for until he came out of Loch Ness to save her. And, boy was he tall! Thus starts the latest adventures of the Alpha Team from the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service. And what an adventure it is. This story just keeps moving along & you just can't help wanting to see what happens next. I can't wait to read the next in this series either. The characters are strong & engaging & the story line is new & intriguing. All in all a good evening's read. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader's copy.

    I enjoyed John and Neridia's story. It was a little bit tougher of a read for several reasons, but I enjoyed it. John and his heritage is different from the other shifters and so his obedience to duty, even over logic, was difficult to take sometimes. There were a couple times I wanted to reach into the book and smack him upside the head, but then he would only take that as a challenge and completely miss my point. Neridia was full of fear and it held her back a lot. The grandeur of Atlantis was I enjoyed John and Neridia's story. It was a little bit tougher of a read for several reasons, but I enjoyed it.

We meet a really interesting character called the Master Shark who left me anxious for more. This book was longer than the others, and the fact that there was so much doubt and debate over what to do about Neridia and their mating and everything that goes with it made for a somewhat slow read. That being said, the ending is very satisfying and I enjoyed their story nonetheless. Firefighter Sea Dragon fills you with wonder at sea with views from Atlantis and neat dragons that sing. John's journey puts instict against duty, and Neridia's journey is all about finding courage.

But my mind is as open as the day is long, so I flip the first page, and I've got to say I have not laughed so hard and felt so connected to two characters as Neidira and John.

Must say I was surprised you deviated from the w/w romance, but you've stolen me with this story. It is truly your most heartfelt, or the one my heart felt the most, and not because the main characters were black, but because this is great work of art consisting of two people who had the greatest of obstacles in front of them, and yet, they came out on top by embracing what made them different. Their differences are what made them into who they were meant to be. Now, I have two favorite paranormal authors. Kudos for me...lol And yes, I'm binge-reading your books and will leave as many reviews as I can.

    This was different in the fact that it is set on both land and water. The book contains a mystery, assassination and attempts, sharks and sea dragons. I enjoyed it it has happy moments and also some touching ones. John Doe is a knight from Atlantis on the hunt for the emperor. He is attending the wedding of Griff. He is sent to relax, he finds anything but. He goes to Loch Ness to shift into his sea dragon form and dance in the water. While speaking to the water he asks if it knows what he seek This was different in the fact that it is set on both land and water.

Neridia has always been very tall and feels out of place. The date she is on goes badly. While running away she knocks over the drinks of some drunks. Standing by the edfe of the loch the drunks find her. she is rescued by a man who turns into a monster. Will John find the emperor for whom he seeks? Will he find Neridia and come to her aid? Will both their lives change? I give this wonderful story 5 stars. "I voluntarily read and reviewed a advanced reader copy without pressure to do so".

    FANTASTIC!!! This series is so great. I have enjoyed it so very much. Neridia, at 6'6", has felt her size was a deterrent to ever finding any man she could be with. Every man she ever tries to date is so put off with her size she has almost completely given up. When she flees her latest date because of his reaction to her size, she finds herself by Loch Ness being attacked by 5 drunken men because she knocked over their table in her haste to get out of the bar she had been in.

To her amazement she is rescued by a man even bigger than herself. John Doe realizes she is his mate as soon as their hands touch. He is heartbroken because being a Knight-Poet of the First Water he took a vow of chastity and cannot have a mate. Things get even more intense when he discovers she is the daughter of the Emperor he has been searching for two years. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles to overcome, John and Neridia actually do get their HEA but you have to read this book to find out how. I can't recommend this book enough.

    OKAY OKAY OKAY--I gotta' review this bullshit. Because it's the most confusingly entertaining thing I've ever listened to. The audiobook is hilarious. I legitimately stopped listening to it and returned the audiobook to the library because it was so cringeworthy. The narrator has different voices for all the characters, and they're SO DIFFERENT. I convinced myself I couldn't do it and let it go. Over the next couple days, I just chortled to myself about how terrible it was.

Because I redownloaded it to finish it. I was so curious about the plot, ya' see. It's so outlandishly weird. BUT: this is the third in the series. I read it as a stand alone, and while you can do that, it does have characters that have formulated previous attachments in two previous books. I'm reading the first one now and it's cute too. BUT. If you can suspend your disbelief a Sea Dragon story can be a bit of fun.

    This series has so many different shifters working together as members of the East Sussex Fire & Rescue firefighters, including a dragon, a Pegasus, and now a sea dragon...an extremely tall sea dragon! John Doe searched the oceans and seas all around the world for his true mate.

He was sent as the "walker-above-waves" to search on land for the Pearl Emperor of Atlantis, who had disappeared years before. Neridia was a 6'6" curvy woman, taller than all the men around and she thought herself a freak! Then she met John... This is a great addition to the series. Fast paced and fully packed with suspense and excitement. No spoilers here...definitely a fun must read!

    John Doe is still learning about shifters on the land. They are so different from those of the sea. And his brothers’ all believe that he too has a mate. But John doesn’t believe so till he takes a swim to Loch Ness. Neridia has had a hard time finding a man. They all freak out when they see her. She is 6’6, way taller than most. When she bumps into John things just seem so weird. For one, she didn’t realize John was a sea dragon and that there are shifters of all kinds in the world.

It’s a good thing he has friends that are willing to fight for him and Neridia. They know what it’s like to search and then find you mate and be whole. But then when she and John do become one, someone is trying to kill her. And I had a pretty good idea who wanted her dead. Power tends to corrupt and is what it did.

    Nerida and John Doe were perfect for each other !! She was afraid to do anything and he was afraid of nothing except losing his honor !! As a sea dragon it was taught to them from birth that honor was everything and living in Atlantis was a privledge !! He met Nerida looking for her father the lost Emperor, but things get really hairy from there. Supposed friends are enemies, enemies are true friends and Nerida can't even swim, so she questions how she could be a sea dragon, muchless an Emperess Nerida and John Doe were perfect for each other !!

And to top it all off the sex is great, until under orders from his boss John can no longer have sex, under punishment of death !! Talk about paying the ultimate price for nookie with your mate !! 4⭐'s . This is one of the most hilarious books in the series and I can't wait for the next one .

    This series is probably the one I like most from this author, I feel in these ones she does a lot more world and character building and while everything still happens fast, as they are shorter books, its not like chapter 2 and BAM in love etc. You get to know the characters better with a bit of back history and conversations. Loved John though at times he was definitely blinded by his honour. Neridia was great, and it was wonderful to see she could balance her sea and land time.

Still a mystery for me what type of shifter Hugh will be so looking forward to his story next. Great to see the previous characters and how their lives are progressing. Wasn't the steamiest book but I don't see that as a problem as I felt the story/plot certainly made up for it. I received this ARC with no obligation to leave my honest review! Overall a great read and looking forward to the next one.

    More amazing world building Book 4 in the Fire & Rescue Shifters series, characters do carry over from the previous books, and while you could read this as a standalone, certain characters attitudes and reactions will occasionally make more sense if you have the full background of the previous books. I enjoyed the twist to this that had John feeling that his Sea Dragon was his true form, so instead of getting advice from an inner animal, he gets advice from his inner human.

I loved this opportunity to learn more about John’s people and how their magic works.

Instead, he finds his mate, Neridia, who holds the secret within her that she is even unaware of. When the truth comes out, a plot that has been long at work is revealed.

    Sea Dragon of Atlantis & Firefighter of East Sussex. 3.5 Star's. Lol, Good Lord! What's in a name? As much as I liked John and Neridia's story, and enjoyed the humour throughout parts of the story, it wasn't as captivating as I thought it would be. I found John to be at time's infuriating and Neridia a tad to timid until the end. Still for entertainment value and for the fact that it was well written, it was a good read and I will absolutely be reading more of this series.
