As an Aiken(Shelley Laurenston) fan, I was crazy excited to review this one.... I bought the book as soon as it was released, and devoured it as fast as I could (which RL made more difficult then I'd have liked). Now that I've read the book though, I can't seem to figure out what I thought of it... I can honestly say I didn't hate it. And I'm relatively positive I didn't dislike it. The problem is that I can' decide if I actually liked it or not.
I think the confusion comes from a shift in the tone of the story... It seems to start off more lighthearted, and then got a bit darker then I'd expected midway through the book. Add to that, there are a number of bits from various characters perspectives (some from previous books, some not), which made the overall book longer then the other books in the series... and while for the most part said bits added to the overall story, there were just so many of them!
I liked the heroine and the hero of the story, that I know for sure. And most of the secondary characters (and there were quite a few) And I laughed quite a bit, so that's always a plus... But I'm still up in the air about whether or not I actually liked this one....
Either way, I'm eagerly awaiting her next release!

This book has it all - humor, tears, romance, danger, family fighting and family that's got your back. I love how the author blends in so much humor within all the pages. I hated to get to the end of this book yet I'm already looking towards reading more stories about this family of dragons.

I have followed this series and enjoyed this latest book, Gwenvael the Handsome's story.
That being said, it seems that all dragon couples have a volatile relationship and only get along in bed. And I was not feeling the love between these two. Dagmar was a very intelligent manipulator and Gwenvael is the ultimate playboy. Gwenvail turns out to be just as good at political manipulating as Dagmar and I was laughing out loud at some of their antics. Dagmar's affinity with animals, especially dogs, was great. But I didn't feel the loving tolerance for each other that I got with the previous couples. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
