Review: Open Season by Cassandra Curtis

Open Season by Cassandra Curtis 


Story rating: 4.5 out of 5 paddles

Sting Factor (kink): 4 out of 5


A submissive-in-training, Season knows the boundaries,but that doesn’t stop her from crossing them, or from falling in love with her master and wanting more. When the ban against life-mating between humans and Dragonkind is lifted, she jumps at the chance to enter the ritual hunt and claim her master as mate. Despite the dangers and risks, she knows their love is worth it, even if her masterful dragon doesn’t.

Quinn knew accepting the position as General of the Dragon Army came with risks and that his enemies would look for any weakness they could use against him. But he never realized how fast lust could turn to love, or desire to need.

When an old foe from the war notices Quinn’s growing attraction and deeper involvement with Season, Quinn is caught between two difficult choices—pretend indifference to the woman he’s grown to love, or enter the Solstice Hunt and risk everything to claim his human mate.


MAGNIFICENT! This was a great story.  Cassandra Curtis created a wonderful world.  The length of the story (Only 72 pages) while short leaves you wanting to know more about the characters and the minor characters that appear in the book.   This could very easily become a series.   The author does a marvelous job of balancing heat, sex, and BDSM elements without sacrificing the story line in the process.  This author brings the BDSM elements into the story without going overboard and making the story only about sex.  While the ending felt a bit hurried,  this is a great book to put on your to be read stack.
