Product Description

Despite his handicaps outside his natural habitat, water dragon Remy “Champ” Champlain fights to protect Queen Margery from those who plot to quash her damaging news reports by silencing her...forever.

He can never have her, but he'll protect her with his life.

After newly shifted sky dragon Queen Margery is rescued from smugglers by water dragon Remy Champlain, she debates whether to flesh out the story that nearly got her killed or embrace her royalty and build a court of protectors and studs. Sparks fly between Remy and her. He’d love her to give up her job and settle down…hopefully with him…but he can’t fly and she can’t swim, so their relationship can never get off the ground.

The Emerging Queens series is best enjoyed in order.

Remy “Champ” Champlain will fight to protect Queen Margery from those who plot to silence her…forever, he’d love for her to give up her job and settle down – hopefully with him, but he can’t fly and she can’t swim, so their relationship can never get off the ground in this spectacular paranormal romance.

Margery may be an Emerging Queen but who says she can’t keep her human life by fleshing out the story that nearly got her killed and the readers can’t help but be enthralled by Margery and Remy’s star crossed romance as Remy fights to keep her alive. The chemistry between Remy and Margery is hot enough to set Remy’s lake a boiling but Remy has a few handicaps that make being Margery’s protector and consort a bit challenging and then there is the whole survival bit creating quite a bit of chaos among all the emotional turmoil flowing from the pages. These characters are strong, compelling and have vibrant personalities that capture readers attention from the very beginning and be prepared for Remy to surprise you while stealing your heart in this fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of exciting action, suspense, and romance.

The story starts off with a thrilling rescue and continues with lots adrenaline pumping excitement from there as Margery takes on the bad guys all while trying to handle being outed as an emerging Queen, including but not limited to explosions, persistent pursuers and heated clashes among the dragons. The scenes are full of vivid details that make it easy for the readers to become ensnared in the story while all the intriguing events ensure that there is never a dull moment with some unexpected twists shaking things up.

The author continues to astound me with how she incorporates different dragon mythology and elements into such a fascinating world…a world that I never want to leave and Margery and Remy’s story just about blew me away, I loved both their characters and I can’t wait to read the next Emerging Queen’s story.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Series Moves On With Another Great Story 24 May 2016
By Douglas C. Meeks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the 3rd installment in this series and while it was enjoyable (I read it in one day, almost one sitting) it was not the laugh out loud, addicting story I was expecting based on the two previous installments.

What this book does in addition to throwing the designated couple for this book together, who we met briefly in one of the previous books (Champ and Margery), it moves the overall story of the Queens and the changing world along very nicely. Since the curse was broken, instead of 5 Queens we now have hundreds and it is causing a bit of havoc in this world where dragons were known but Queens were beyond rare.

The romance between Champ and Margery was nice and warm but at the same time it was almost swept along by events and throw in a tiny bit of self loathing and it just did not have that "shine" the previous romances had for me. Margery was also not quite as likable as most of the other Queens we have met (and a LOT more likable than a few).

I did like the fact we are seeing new Queens that have personalities all over the spectrum, much like the human race, you have the full range of people. We seem to be moving into a more adventurous stage in the overarching story and I am curious to see where it goes.

Bottom Line: Entertaining reading, decent romance, just enough sex to make it seem real without becoming page filler, but I missed the level of humor in previous books. I guess you can't have everything :) 4 Stars and highly recommended but these books need to be read in order to appreciate the stories.
4.0 out of 5 stars Such unusual dragons! 23 May 2016
By Marta Cox - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Well this is the third instalment and I really feel this series is easy to read, a completely different take on dragons and quite light hearted at times. This journey started with The Queens Wings which several of my friends raved about and it's a dangerous world the new dragon queens are emerging into . A terrible curse is finally broken leaving those who believed they were human surreally turning into dragons! As if that wasn't enough to deal with the politics associated with their ruling queens is enough to give anyone a headache! Oh and did I mention there are plans afoot to impregnate humans using a new drug? Yes the world that Margery has been catapulted into is anything but boring!
Queen Margery had a rotten start in life and now has a zeal to right wrongs using her investigative reporting job to help her. Ok she is slowly coming to terms with wings and scales but being kidnapped by drug runners has really cramped her style! Never fear though because rescue is close at hand and it takes the shape of Remy but as he can't fly how can he really protect Margery?
I have to say I really don't like the way the males are referred to as studs and it just makes this reader cringe although being basically a brood mare isn't desirable either! I do understand that for centuries a lack of queens has given the females immense powers that some have and still do abuse but no it's a bit yucky. Now, of course it's as if the whole world is overran by female dragons but still there are those who want to use a dangerous drug on humans. There are revelations here about its origins that are eye opening but I'm still struggling to work out how all these females will divide the territories .
This has been a light hearted romance series with diverse characters and they don't come more different then Remy. For a start his element is water and he doesn't have wings and then of course there is the delicious revelation about his parentage , let's just say it's time to go hunting in Scotland ! For me he was the true star of the book, so brave and his inner thoughts were so funny. So what do I think of Margery? She is very pushy , addicted to tea and I've a feeling not all readers will connect with her. Her background has shaped her and although she's not exactly hard there is an almost bulldozer attitude about her. As for the romance it felt very rushed but I could see that Margery was seriously running out of options.
My final thoughts are I do love the odd characters and it's such fun trying to imagine their dragon forms. I'm curious about what will happen to Margery's sister and oh yes there's a certain arrogant musician who needs to fall and by that I mean fall hard!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Addition to the Series! 24 May 2016
By cola_bear - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
*ARC provided through Netgalley

I love this series, and when this book appeared on Netgalley I prayed I would be able to read and review. I was lucky enough to be selected to do so, and I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed!


The Good: the characters were wonderful, as always, and it was great to see past leads come back for this book :) The leads were fantastic--Margery was a delight. I especially loved that she didn't turn her back on humans after she shifted and became a Queen, and that she fought to protect them from a new drug released by dragons. She was strong, persistent, and awesome. Remy "Champ" (nicknamed such due to living in Lake Champlain--which I loved, since their is a legend of a lake monster there named Champ). He can't fly, but that doesn't stop him from falling in love with Margery, who is a sky dragon. I love Remy, he was a wonderful protector and consort...and a great dragon!

The action was well written, the conflict and tension perfect, and the issues for the newly turned Queens were much more apparent in this book. I loved learning more about the situation and how that would affect both dragons and humans.

The Bad: not one thing was bad about this book. The pacing was spot-on, the romance and sex were well paced and didn't feel forced (which is one of my pet-peeves in romance of any variety--when the love is forced and feels unnatural).

Overall: I highly recommend this book for those who enjoyed the other books in this series, as well as for readers who love paranormal romance...and dragons!!!!! I do hope another book is on the way :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Surprise 24 May 2016
By pw reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have read contemporary romance novels by Jamie K. Schmidt but not any paranormal. So it was a surprise to see that The Queen's Dance is book three in this series. Jamie K. Schmidt does as well with paranormal as she does contemporary. There is hot chemistry between two characters, Champ and Margery, who seem incompatible in the long term, a thrilling rescue that jump starts an action packed story and bad guys that you want the dragons to squash.

This story balances out the romance with the overall action theme, making it a hot page turner. I haven’t read the first two yet but now have on my TBR list. Still I did not find the plot difficult to follow. I just want to know more about these interesting creatures who are part of an original story-line.

Fans of dragons or paranormal stories will find The Queen’s Dance a must read. Fans of Erin Kellison, Donna Grant or Katie Reus’ paranormal will for sure want to check out Jamie K. Schmidt’s Emerging Queens Series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic reading experience 17 June 2016
By Musings & Ramblings - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Jamie Schmidt started out as an unknown to me author, when I picked up The Queen's Wings. I had such a fantastic time with that book, that I didn't even bother to read the blurb when The Queen's Flight came out. Now, the third book in this exciting series has come out and once again, I had a fantastic reading experience.

This book starts up immediately following events in the end of The Queen's Flight. Once again, we have another newly emerged Queen in trouble. Margery was an investigative journalist who hid the fact that she was a Queen. At least she did until she got caught while she was doing some clandestine investigating on a story concerning dragons and a corrupt corporation run by them.

Remy is our first introduction to water dragons, and finding out that his mother is Nessie, the Lochness Monster, was totally cool. Thinking of the movie, The Water Horse, I was totally able to picture our yummy Remy. I don't think the book was specific about his accent, but I totally heard one in my head, lol!

As before, this book had me giggling and reading specific lines of dialogue out loud to enjoy testing the feel of the words. For example, the following takes place shortly after Margery rescue. Remy is trying to care for her, and being very formal and politic about his duties to a Queen on his territory. Margery, on the other hand, is a modern career woman who wants nothing to do with the political headaches and dramas of being a Queen. Their clashes had me grinning with glee.

Remy sighed. “I’m sorry, my Queen.”
“Knock that s*** right off,” she told him.
He blinked at her.
“I’m Margery. Just plain Margery.” They glared at each other for a moment, until she looked down. “I’m sorry if I snapped at you.”
“Queens don’t apologize,” he said through his teeth.
“I just told you I’m not a Queen.”
“Yes, you are. I saw you. Although you looked like a plucked chicken rather than a dragon.”
“Up yours,” Margery said. “Stick you in a cargo hold for a few weeks and see what you look like.”

Overall, this was another excellent book in the series. The world building continues, learning new facets of this interesting alternate world where Dragons live side by side with humans. Though I suppose technically you could read this as a stand alone, I would highly advise against it. The characters have been interesting and the dialogue wonderful. I truly hope to see more see more books in this series. I gave this book 4 dragon sized stars.

Netgalley and Entangled Publishing provided me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
