Despite his handicaps outside his natural habitat, water dragon Remy “Champ” Champlain fights to protect Queen Margery from those who plot to quash her damaging news reports by silencing her...forever.

He can never have her, but he'll protect her with his life.

After newly shifted sky dragon Queen Margery is rescued from smugglers by water dragon Remy Champlain, she debates whether to flesh out the story that nearly got her killed or embrace her royalty and build a court of protectors and studs. Sparks fly between Remy and her. He’d love her to give up her job and settle down…hopefully with him…but he can’t fly and she can’t swim, so their relationship can never get off the ground.

THE QUEEN'S DANCE was a nice continuation of The Emerging Queens series.

We met both Remy and Margery in book two, THE QUEEN'S FLIGHT and get to dive into their story and romance with THE QUEEN'S DANCE. I enjoyed both of the characters and thought the story was smooth, well developed and held my attention until the end. Margery has a bit of a stubborn streak and it causes quite a bit of trouble between her and the dragon fellas.

Margery and Remy's romance is pretty decent. The dance around each other and their progression as a couple was pretty on par with the previous two installments of this series. There was a nice amount of action in THE QUEEN'S DANCE, but the other two books had a lot of action too.

So, I enjoyed THE QUEEN'S DANCE and had no big issues with it, but I wanted MORE from it. Some big BANG that would separate this book from the rest of the series. Maybe book four will bring me the bang I'm looking for.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
