Sometimes the things that keep us safe hold us captive. Avery Tanglewood has had enough of rearranging her life for the sake of others. After years of prioritizing her family over herself, she's ready to strike out on her own, even if she's not sure what she wants to do with her life. If only she was brave enough to face the backlash the truth will bring.

He's a prisoner of the past. For hundreds of years, Xavier has used his dragon magic to protect his Highland clan inside a pocket of space called the builgean. Thanks to his unique magical abilities, generations have enjoyed peace and prosperity while cut off from the modern world. But when a fairy trickster captures him and claims his throne, his refuge becomes his prison.

Can they free each other from the chains that bind? Avery agrees to journey into the builgean to persuade Xavier to help with the crisis in Paragon, but she finds a mysterious stranger in his place - a problematic complication, considering she can't leave the pocket without Xavier's assistance. Worse, although she frees the captured dragon, he refuses to comply without winning back his land and his clan first. And the longer Avery spends in Xavier's world, the harder it is to remember why she should return to her own.

magical paranormal ROMANCE SUSPENSE

The Treasure of Paragon is a fun series with each book dealing with one couple as the dragon siblings of Paragon reunite. The overall series arc deals with witches & dragons and the fate of the dragons’ world, Paragon.

In Highland Dragon, we learn about Xavier when Nathaniel asks her to go into a pocket frozen in time in 1745, Ireland. He and Xavier built it, but only a human can enter. Avery is the oldest Tanglewood sister and not a witch. She has sacrificed for her sister and mother. Now that they are ok, it’s time for her to discover herself and this trip, while dangerous, seems like the perfect opportunity to spread her own wings.

The tale that unfolds was delightful, suspenseful and swoon-worthy. From the time we entered the bubble, I was enthralled. Xavier is no longer the Laird of the castle, and she’ll need to save him before she completes her mission.

I loved the characters from the brownies to the townfolk. Xavier is every bit the highlander and his reactions to modern day Avery had me laughing more than once. Avery discovers things about herself and I enjoyed seeing her find her power.

While one could listen to this a standalone, I recommend you listen in the order of their release, to best appreciate the overall arc. We get some chapters from previous characters which are important. Plus, there are spoilers and updates regarding previous characters.

Holly Adams narrates and delighted me with her voices for Avery and Xavier. Even her voice for the villain enhanced the story. I pictured him as Gargamel from the Smurfs…lol. I recommend listening to the series as it lends perfectly to this format.

    I’m translating these books in French, it’s fun. I need to do the last book and I’m quite curious about it.

  2. Lover of Romance

    Its always the best when a narrator just uplifts the story even more! This sounds like a super paranormal though, how have I never heard of it? One clicking it immediately. I can’t resist a swoony read.

    Lovely review!
