Review:  Freeing His Swan Dancer is the fifth book in the Once Upon a Dream series by Nikki Prince. I chose this book because of the combination of paranormal elements and BDSM made this book appealing to read.

Odette Dubois has had a rough life. She is running from her past and unwilling to endanger anyone. Odette is a strong woman trying to make sure the one man she loves, Dante and her son are safe. She puts everyone a head of herself. Odette ex-husband tried to kill her and in the process hurt the one man that tried to help her. Now Jace Rothbart is in prison and he teams up with a demon to torment Odette.

The chemistry between Odette and Dante is scorching. Dante Roberson is in love with Odette and does not know how to get through to her. Dante does a great job no matter how frustrated he gets it never shows. He keeps on trying to make her understand how much he cares. The sex scenes were blistering.

I enjoyed this book but I would have liked it more flushed out. There seemed parts that were rushed and others seem underdeveloped. The main and secondary characters were interesting and engaging. Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
