TWO 4 Star Reviews for The Only Option (Dubious #4) by Megan Derr #MM #Fantasy @amasour

CoverTitle: The Only Option (Dubious #4)
Author Name: Megan Derr
Publication Date & Length: May 1, 2016 – 114 pgs


A desperate dragon. A lonely necromancer. A marriage neither wants.

When he is summoned to the royal castle, Rochus anticipates nothing more than a particularly difficult assignment. The bothersome journey is almost made worthwhile when he is propositioned by a young, beautiful dragon, Tilo, who seems untroubled by the fact that Rochus is a necromancer.

When Rochus arrives at the castle he is ordered to marry the very same dragon he spent the night with. Though Rochus would rather sign papers and return home, he is helpless against Tilo’s pleas for help, even if it means spending more time around a man he is desperately drawn to but who doesn’t seem to want him.

I really enjoyed this book. I have not read any of the other books in the series so I was not sure exactly what Rochus really was but it did not take long in the book to figure it out. I am glad that I did not need to read the previous books to find out what was going on and terms that was used in this book because Meagan Derr did an amazing job describing what was going on and definitions of who the two characters were.

It is true that under normal circumstances that Rochus and Tilo may have onlyhooked up for one night and nothing more but the arranged marriage led them to realize they cared for one another and though they both about let there doubt destroy what they started building together they came through it all stronger and with the knowledge that they belonged to one another.

This book is filled with adventure and a bit of mystery. It a very exciting read and I will definitely check out other books in the series.



ah, Megan Derr. I’ve been reading a lot of this author’s works lately, and it’s been truly enjoyable. Here she gives us Rochus and Tilo. I really liked them together and I don’t often see a pairing like theirs. Rochus, a cranky necromancer and Tilo, a cute and lovable dragon.
It’s a short story, but the interactions between them left me satisfied. I hate reading a short story where the main love interests spends over 50% of the book apart. It’s a sweet story centered on trust and being able to see through smoke and mirrors. I do love the older man, younger man dynamic in the story, as well as the lovers being a necromancer and a dragon. I’d love to read a follow up between these two.
