From the blurb:

Prince Valerian Tallis has always been forbidden from searching for his soulmate.

Once, the Tallis royal line was strongly bonded with the dragon shapeshifters of the land. However, when Valerian's ancestors grew too greedy, the dragon shapeshifters went into hiding.

Dragon shapeshifter Kaenor Alreny has never known anything but total isolation and to keep clear of the royal family.

But when the kingdom is invaded and the Tallis family taken captive, Valerian has no choice but to seek out Kaenor and beg for his dragon soulmate's help. Kaenor's price is simple: to break their soul bond. Which means that for Valerian to stand a chance at saving the world he's always known, he'll have to give up the person he's always dreamed about.

The Sacrificial Soulmate is a m/m dragon shapeshifter novella in a fantasy setting that includes: ritual sex, loss of virginity, and sex with shapeshifting elements. It contains explicit sexual content and is not suitable for young readers.

Jacquie's Review:

After I got used to the third person present tense narrative, I really enjoyed the story.

There was plenty of magic, action and some steam to keep me turning the pages, though there was more than enough story for something longer. The author manages to pack a lot into a few pages and they could have perhaps explored some things a little more.

There were details I would have loved to have, such as the characters ages, and the ending was a tad abrupt but still lovely and fitting for the characters. There's a lot to love in this novella. In fact, I'd quite like to read more about these particular characters.
