Mistletoe and Dragons by Kelsey Hodge

Jacquie found a lovely Christmas themed story mixing chocolate and magic on KU and shared Mistletoe and Dragons with the team and of course with you!

From the blurb:


I’ve been around for centuries and, although I love living with the Easter elves, it never fully feels like home. Now I’ve been asked to go and work in Geimhreadh, the one place that felt like home when I was last there. I’m excited to work with another chocolatier, but when I arrive, I discover the feeling isn’t mutual. But why can’t I get him out of my head?


love working with chocolate, and this Christmas, I get to work on my own and create my own ideas. But then I’m informed I have help coming. Help I don’t want. So I promise myself to make his time with me in Geimhreadh as miserable as possible. Then he arrives and my plans go out the window. He’s all I can think about. I do everything I can to fight it…until what I am fighting against no longer matters.

Jacquie's Review:

Mistletoe and Dragons is really sweet with a slight enemies to lovers vibe going on to start with since Lumi really doesn't want Caden around.

Though I would add that I think it would be helpful to have read the authors other dragon story, Legend of the Easter Dragon, first for context and because those characters feature throughout.

It somehow manages to be both a slow and fast burn, with the romance happening in the last third of the book but on the timeline only within days of them meeting.

I look forward to more dragon stories because I enjoyed the world that the author has made with the different season elves.
