Product Description

What happens when the woman with nothing left to lose falls for a shifter on the verge of losing everything?
When brilliant, curvy Bella Hart becomes unexpectedly jobless, she's forced to move in with her father, groundskeeper at the mysterious Winter’s Breath estate. Dorian Winterborn, the estate's intriguing new heir, is another surprise Bella didn't see coming. Sexy, wry, and everything she's ever wanted in a man, he exerts a sensual pull on Bella she is powerless to resist.

A terrible curse holds Dorian Winterborn captive: he is a dragon shifter who can’t shift. The dark magic that chains him is tearing him apart as the curse ravages his mind and body. Bella, with her light and laughter and undeniable sexiness, is one of the only things keeping him on the right side of sanity.

Bella and Dorian must work together to save not only the crumbling estate, but his very soul. Yet as she finds herself unexpectedly drawing closer to the tortured man, can she find a way to break his curse before she loses him forever?

I received an ARC of 'Chained' from Jacqueline Sweet, in exchange for an honest review.

I started this book, a little unsure just what was happening, but I quickly became intrigued with what was actually going on & couldn't wait to find out the answers. 'Chained' is book 1 of Jacqueline Sweet's new series "Dragon's Heart".

After unfairly being fired from the law firm she works for, Bella needs to find somewhere fast to live, calling up her father is the only choice Bella has. With only hours to get out of her apartment, Bella grabs everything she can & gets the bus to Bearfield & waits for her father to pick her up. With rules about living on Winter's Breath estate, Bella is pretty much recluse until one night she meets the owner Dorian Winterborn.

I'll leave that there, I don't want to spoil anything for you, 'Chained' was filled with intrigue, keeping me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen, why Dorian was the way he was... I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Well I started off feeling sorry for Bella but as the book progressed I just did not like her. AT ALL.
Bella was supposed to be an attorney working for one of the top firms in the country. She was sexually harassed at work by a client and basically fired for not putting out. Good girl. Smart getting away from a potential rapist.
But then she calls her very cold cruel father to let her stay with him for a short time. She spends two weeks with her father who did not even want her there and she does nothing to help herself. Does not look for a job, nothing.
She then ends up working at the main house but she was insincere, ungrateful, unethical and basically a thief. She accepted money from Rodney to not tell he was stealing from their boss. Not cool. She bemoans her fate when she gets caught with the cash.
For example - "She had technically aided and abetted Rodney. Bella was too angry to read and too sad to leave. She felt a great rage at all the men in her life who misjudged her, who blamed her for their own faults, or who saw her only as an object to be toyed with. She should have called someone. Reached out to old friends on Facebook or Twitter or Snapchat. She should have done something. Instead she stewed, marinated in her own dark feelings for days on end."
Really, this from a lawyer, someone who had to work their guts out in college to get to be a lawyer. What a waste of space she is.
Then when her would be rapist shows up she does nothing but shows him around the house. Weird, I would have been kneeing him in the right place.
The ending was just too strange and too twee to be real.
Hunters turn up, Bella loves Dorian and does everything to save him. Forgives him, (he is still apologising for some reason).

Title: Chained   
Series: Dragon's Heart
              Reckless Desire
Destination: Book 1,  125 Pages,
Author: Jacqueline Sweet
Reviewer: Ingrid Stephanie Jordan
Genre: #Paranormal #Dragonshifter
My Score: 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆

Since I love dragons so much, I was really excited to start this book series
Dragon's Heart. But it was slow for me at first that I had to reread because I was not sure I understood. It was a little frustrating, BUT
I keep on truckin, then it was smooth sailing.
Maybe I'm just the slow horse at the starting gate. Ms. Jacqueline has written a different kind of Dragon story. Which was new again for me, but just perfect. I really thought Chloe was very cute in a strange kind of way. Who knows more about the ghosts?
Isabella Hart aka: Bella is a BBW  lawyer, who worked for the firm Black, Cross and Landon, she lost her job  because a client told her boss she threw herself at him, When it was the other way around he shouldn't have shown his family jewels.
Lord Dorian Winterborn is a powerful dragon shifter with a powerful curse. This curse would change Dorian with no warning to a cruel nasty, ugly, violent man. Dorian must be acknowledged the curse and save his crumbling estate. But can he in time, he was desperately trying to no avail, he has I listed many Witches and Wizards to help. Will they all be on time? I was gifted this ARC for an honest and truthful review.

5.0 out of 5 stars DRAGON HEARTS ARE DA RARE COMMODITY 21 October 2016
By Joyce J. Ruskuski - Published on

Another great series begins I love the Dragon hearts who nothing more than very human and very strong women who can not only stand up to a mighty dragon make them purr in the process.

Bella and her father have a really tempestuous relationship to say the least and it was a great way to bring the dragon and the dragon heart together. I love that the clown that got her canned turned out to be the one the dragon was supposed to sell the mansion to.

It a great read and I know you will like it too.

It was an ok story, but there were a lot of typing errors, and between that and the huge gaps in story telling I couldn't bring myself to rate this any higher.

I think what I found most frustrating was the heroine kept talking about growing feelings, but they never interacted, and she, for the most part, avoided the hero.

Interesting idea, but so much was left out.

Also-who the hell forgets their best friend locked in a room with human skulls embedded in the mortar?!

This is the first book in the Dragon's Heart series. Bella is an attorney who loses her job thanks to a pervert client. Having nowhere else to go she moves in with her father. He is the groundskeeper of Winter' Breathe estate. Dorian is a cursed dragon shifter. Will she be able to help break the curse? Will they find peace and love before it is to late? Will Dorian go insane because he cannot shift? I enjoyed this story and give it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Of Surprises With An Unexpected Twist. 4 May 2016
By I Rasmussen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Never did I ever think that this story would turn out the way it did, i have to be honest this is one story I don't want to indulge too much on this, because what I can tell you is this, that you would never have guessed that the heroin of this story is somewhat of a mystery. Bella was a top of the class student who aced her test to becoming a partner in a very busy but exclusive law firm.
Until one day changed all of that, she had lost her job and was told to leave her clothes except the ones she arrived in, her apartment that very night. Knowing that she could not turn to anyone else she had no other option but to return to estranged father, who happens to be working for Lord Dorian Winterbourn.

It is here when things become somewhat of a mystery to Bella and leaves her wondering if she had fallen in among people who were insane or just plane crazy. Dorian was her main concern he was a mystery to everyone and most of all his mood swings were worse than what she bargained for, the only thing is she couldn't explain why she was so attracted to him and why she was the only one who could smell burning cinnamon everytime his mood changed.

So what do you do when you are surrounded by a mood swinging lord, a cook who supposedly talks to ghosts and a thief for a butler. Oh let's not forget the estranged father who has been keeping a secret for many years and who turns out to be just as deceitful and cruel as the lord of manors
father. This is a thriller you would not want to put down, okay so I'm being vague, but trust me Bella and Dorians story is worth the read.
