The Passionate Queen
Once upon a time a dragon dared to fall in love with the Queen of Hearts…
Zelena Hermosa wants only one thing, to be free. But for a morphling like her freedom will never be possible. Bought by a witch as a baby, she’s been raised in a household that knows no kindness or love. She’s a broken, dirty child the day she meets her prickly little dragon boy.
Ragoth Nur, heir to the throne of Drakon has just stolen a golden apple from Zeus’s favored orchard. In order to make sure he doesn’t have to face the wrath of the gods (but especially his mom) he runs off to wonderland to enjoy his treat and there bumps into the human girl who will change the course of his life forever.
There’s so much more to the Queen of Heart’s than the stories. So much more than the vindictive woman who shouts, “Off with her heads.” This is the true story of the woman, the legend, and the myth…
Jovee Winters just rocked my hot fairy tale loving socks off! The Passionate Queen is an obsess-worthy, steamy, adult fairy tale destined to be a reader's favorite!
As one can guess there are dark elements surrounding the protagonists of this book, bringing forth the darkness within their own bitter and broken hearts. The beginning, however, is somewhat a picture of light , youthful innocence with a dash of evil witchiness to create what would be an infamous dark queen in the making. The difference between Zelena, future queen of hearts, and the epic fairy tale character we all knew as children, is this one has a devoted, not your ordinary run of the mill, dragon shifter with a heart that beats only for her. Their story is riveting and the deeper I fell in love with them the more my heart ached for their trials and injustices. Of course these events made for one heck of a story and a more intriguing reunion!
Winters did an incredible job with developing the characters. The scenery is blissfully mystical and the overall story is a page turner that is simply impossible not to finish in one sitting.
5 Stars for a 6 Star fantasy!
