I have read several of Showalter's books and really like them but . . .
Heart of The Dragon in my estimation is more unadulterated sex
then there is story, with a little sprinkle of humor.
Almost to the end of the story you get to the basic adventure.
Not many Demons[unless you count the human ones], or Nymphs either
and way short of Vampire's.

I would say the heroine was a ditzy blonde, if the story did not explicitly describe her as a redhead. Our hero and heroine spend most of the time thinking about the sex they "should not have," instead of getting on with the story. Sorry, Gena, but I need more story to keep my interest, and deeper protagonists. I"m canceling my request for the second book in this series.

This is a typical romance book if you strip off the paranormal elements. Now with that being said....I liked it..I liked the idea that she has about Atlantis holding other beings. She changed my view of Atlantis. I used to think of it more like the Sci/fi show I love. At first when someone's review said a dragon, I was worried. Now if the dragon has a human form then okay I'm game. He did thankfully have a human form. I love it when a powerful woman can break through these stubborn men's built up emotional walls. He even cried and I found that endearing since he finally grieved for his long dead family. Fast, Fun, Romantic,Adventure read.
The author's heroine was not the petite perfect model shape. She wasn't obese but she did have a few curves. I found that more realistic and I approve!

Not bad, but not great, either. Very much your standard formulaic paranormal romance: tortured Hero who can't allow himself to fall in love, strong but insecure Herione, evil menace that must be defeated. The main characters were well developed, but the secondary ones were pretty flimsy. This book focused on the dragons - next one focuses on their mortal enemies, the vampires. No big surprises here, just a decent book to pass the time.
