Review: Naked Dragon by Annette Blair

Naked Dragon is the first book in the Works Like Magick Novels by Annette Blair.

Book Blurb:

As owner of the Works Like Magick Employment Agency in Salem, Massachusetts, Vivica Quinlan has a gift for perfectly matching clients with magical temps that works like a charm every time...

McKenna Greylock contacts Vivica in desperate need of a jack-of-all-trades handyman to help repair her Victorian bed-and-breakfast.  She has a shoestring budget and ninety days to meet the building inspector's approval - or the house will be repossessed and purchased by a duplicitous developer.

To McKenna's surprise, Vivica sends the gorgeous Bastian Dragonelli, who not only possesses the speed, strength, and agility to get the job done, but also sets her soul ablaze with a fiery passion she's never experienced before.  And if McKenna can accept Bastian's true nature - as a dragon warrior - she'll find her life heating up in more ways than one...

My thoughts:

Naked Dragon is a very cute read.  :)

McKenna Greylock is trying to hang on to her family land.  She knows that if she can get the ancestral home up to code, pay all the back taxes and catch up on the mortgage payments - she can have the best B&B in town.

But that is going to be a huge task - and she needs help.

Thinking to hire a handy man, McKenna makes a visit to her cousin, Vivica, a witch, who owns and operates an employment agency that secretly employs magickal beings.

Bastian Dragonelli has a quest of his own - and though she does not know it, McKenna is part of that quest. 

But checking things off his long to-do list is a lot easier than convincing one woman of her own worth - but it is a job Bastian is determined to complete.

I really enjoyed Naked Dragon.  Annette Blair has a wonderful sense of humor and her characters are easy to like.  I can't wait to read the rest of this series.

I give Naked Dragon 4 out of 5 stars.
