Book Review: Claim My Heart

Happy Monday, friends! Today I’m thrilled to share with you my review of Claim My Heart by Mikal Dawn, this lovely novella released in 2019 as a part of the Once Upon a Christmas collection by Andrea Boyd, Mikal Dawn, Toni Shiloh, Angela Ruth Strong, and Jaycee Weaver. This is a Christmas story but it’s the perfect read for any time of year, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t already!

About the Book

Li Na and Colin Wen face off in a Mulan-esque courtroom battle where the real win might be losing their hearts.

My Thoughts:

What an incredibly fun and enchanting story! I must confess that I have never seen Mulan, so this is the only novella in the collection that I was not familiar with its original fairytale, but that did not in any way hinder my enjoyment of the story! Li Na and Colin were such awesome characters! I couldn’t stop smiling while I read this novella, and I loved everything about it! Highly recommended. I cannot wait to go back and read Mikal’s novel, Count Me In! (And I totally plan to watch Mulan soon!)

(5 Stars!)

I received an ebook copy of this book from the publisher which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.

  1. Oh goodness! Thank you SO much!!!! ❤️ I’m so happy you enjoyed these two. Mulan is my top three favourite fairy tales (by Disney, at least…lol!).
