Eileen Troemel brings us a tale of troubled love (and dragons!) with the intriguing short fantasy romance Marelo! Marelo has come to a beach cove to study water dragons, but is met with resistance from Bandor who fears encroachment on the habitat. But despite the tension, love grows between them in this sweet short adventure. I really loved how Troemel interspersed this sweet love story in a land that hints at a larger world! Things felt lived in (in a good way), the beach was beautiful, and Marelo and Bandor have nice tension that leads to a satisfying end. If you love fantasy, romance, and nice quick reads, definitely book a trip to the beach with Marelo!
