    Good Almost great Oh yeah I liked itTo tell you the truth during the first few chapters I was a little hesitant as to whether I should put this book down or not I struggled with the story and the character of Talaith herself through the first half of the book so much so that I felt the urge to DNF But for some unknown reason I decided to at least delve a little bit further into the story and see if the second half would make up for the first one Thankfully the outcome didn’t disappoint me Things started getting better from there and the remaining 25% of the story simply blew me awayMy major problem with this book was Talaith Basically I don’t much enjoy feisty heroines In this book Talaith annoyed me to no end Standing up for herself or being strong is one thing but being rude or aggressive or way too stubborn isn’t what I call adorable Honestly I couldn't warm up to her until near the end of the bookThe constant bickering and taunting that went on between Briec and Talaith got me so irritated They acted childishly which didn't in any way make any favorable impression on me However I enjoyed the overall storyline and also the supporting characters They were a big surprise for me I can tellAside from those issues I have nothing else to complain For the most part this book didn’t disappoint me This was my first read by this author but it will definitely not be my last

    I don't know I just don't knowAt first during the initial two chapters I thought Wow This is much better than the last one and then it just went the same direction They argued constantly Only this time it was treated as positive because arguing turned them on Well I found it to be tediousThis author has a problem with heroines They're all maniacs They have hair trigger tempers and take their anger out violently on their mates That doesn't make them strong female characters It makes them weaker than just about any doormat you could name If they can't control themselves they're worthless to everyone else WeakAnyway I'm not sure what she does under her other pen name Shelley Laurenston? but if she thinks being a violent bitch is the same as being full of spark and fire then she needs to actually meet some women in person Because I'm convinced she's never had any actual contact with the genderSorry for the rant I think what ticks me off is that there are chapters that are pretty amusing There's some really funny stuff in here with a dragon so arrogant and unfamiliar with humans that his first words to the heroine are basically come with me I wish to have you He's actually pretty funny most of the time And it does help very much that we actually see them thinking through what they're going to start an argument about so they can launch into a passionate episode But it would work better if the violent temper losing and poorly thought out rejection didn't come along with it We're left with too many negatives that are completely unnecessaryI'm tempted to read the next one just because I'm on the track but I'll wait a while The dragon at the center of it is a smart ass who's constantly hit and threatened by everyone in retaliation so I can only foresee mate abuse down the road insert eyeroll here

    Not as good as the first one because I found both of the MCs annoying than cute or funny But there was still a lot of funny in the bookWhy they can't be together? Why not?Well first off I'm bound to anotherAh yes To the man who tried to kill youLet's seewhat were his exact words again? Ah yes 'Kill the witch Burn the witch' Didn't he hand a child a rather large stone? That's right Our dragon hero dude saves her from hanging and being burnt at the stake by her husband no less and she bitches and moans the whole book about how the dragon kidnapped her I don't know Seems a little ungrateful to me sheesh A thank you would be niceAnd much like a holiday dinner we get to listen to these two argue and bitch at each other for the entire book Seriously? Can we just eat this giant dead bird in peace Grandpa? Do we have to get into your reasons why this country is going to hell in a handbasket? yeah yeah the calculator is the devil's workHere is what saved the book though Annwyl the Bloody Yes our murderous raging ueen comes in at about the halfway point and is as glorious as ever I love how we get to read her thought process as she is at a boring party stuck listening to a boring man bore her to death his nose was excessively long She desired to break it Would he cry like a babe or take it like a man? She'd wager on crying Yeah I often let my mind wander when someone is going on and on about nothing to me too Maybe I don't think about breaking their noses but I will from now on It's stuck in my head now like a bad song You're welcome for thatThe other great part of this series is the relationship between all of the dragon siblings I love them all and want to be a dragon when I grow up

    35 starsOh my God All the characters behave like children xD I really enjoyed this I thought there's maybe a little just a teeny tiny bit too much sex for my liking and I got a little tired about the constant non stopping sibling fighting Also I think the book could have been a little shorter there was a lot of stuff that just took too long But like I said other than that I really enjoyed it Some parts made really laugh out loud in the middle of the night thank God the boyfriend's a heavy sleeper I'm really interested in Izzy the Dangerous I wonder what she'll become like and I have this feeling with whom she'll maybe hook up? I haven't read the blurbs of the other books and I think this just might make me I can't stand it I'm too curious

    Once again this author has had me laughing so hard I'm practically rolling on the floor The constant hilarity the one liners and the sheer craziness of this family of dragons cracks me up The over the top zaniness of the dragons and their antics is a nice change of pace from my regular reading Every once in a while I just want to sit down with a book that is meant to be pure entertainment I want to howl with laughter and torture my husband by reading scenes to him This series fits the bill for me consistentlyTalaith is having a pretty rough day First she gets dragged out of bed in the middle of the night by an angry town determined to kill her for being a witch and then she gets saved by a dragon She's stuck flying around with a tail holding her expecting to eventually be eaten Imagine her surprise when it turns out the silver dragon is actually Briec the Mighty no he did not give himself that name Briec has noticed that his brother Fearghus seems especially happy these days Briec has concluded that it must have something to do with his human mate and he decides he needs to try one out too Briec has always been rather aloof from humans They're pretty far beneath his notice and really good for nothing than hunting Not that he's hunting any these days Fearghus hooking up with Annwyl changed all that So Briec sees Talaith rescues her and now considers her his Briec and Talaith have a very fun relationship Talaith is opinionated and cranky and enjoys nothing so much as arguing constantly She's also an incessant talker which drives Briec insane Briec is insanely arrogant and believes that the world was created to cater to him He is very frustrated by Talaith and her refusal to heed his demands These two bicker and lust and have hilarious dialogue constantly The fact that both of them get turned on by their arguing is a definite plus for them I cracked up watching them invent reasons to get mad at each other Just so they could make up of course I loved watching Briec try to justify keeping her to himself He couldn't promise her forever just two hundred years okay maybe three hundred Alright five hundred but that was it But it's not forever LOL The fact that he didn't let Talaith in on his couple hundred years plan led to a very cranky situation for Briec I also liked seeing the day after the crazy moon It was uite amusing watching everyone crawl around I also really enjoyed watching Talaith get over her fear of Briec or any of his family in dragon form The scene where Briec makes her touch his fangs is particularly hilariousThis is the book that really solidified my love for Gwenvael How can I not love the little horn dog? Every time I turned around he was trying to spy on them or flirt with Talaith I loved how confused he was that everyone kept hitting him I need to reread his story again

    Buddy read with AlyTalaith is having a pretty rough day she was dragged from her bed in the middle of the night by a mob of angry villagers and now she's about to burn on a pyre because they think she's a witch As if that wasn't bad enough the person who comes to her rescue isn't her husband he was too busy egging on the crowd but a huge dragon who she is pretty sure intends to eat her for a snack later Talaith isn't about to go down without a fight though and Briec may have caught than he bargained for Breic isn't uite sure why he felt the urge to rescue the human woman not to make a meal of that's for sure but he finds her strangely fascinating Now he's brought her back to his cave he isn't uite sure what to do with her but he uickly realises that he doesn't want to let her goThis series is so much fun to read sometimes you just want some brain candy a story that is pure entertainment one that will make you laugh out loud and have you giggling to yourself the whole way through and that's exactly what the Dragon Kin series is for me GA Aiken's dragons are completely over the top cavemen and the women who tame them are all fierce opinionated warriors who are than capable of standing their ground Briec is the most arrogant dragon we've met so far and that's saying something but Talaith isn't impressed she refuses to bow down before any man or dragon and she gives as good as she gets The pair of them spark off each other constantly and both love nothing than a good argument apart from perhaps the make up sex that comes afterwards They make a great couple but Talaith has a secret mission that she must complete and nothing not even her love for an arrogant dragon will sway her from her task Briec has waited a long time for his mate and he isn't going to let her get away from him that easily thoughOne of the things I love most about this series is the family all of the dragons are completely crazy and their interactions are absolutely hilarious About A Dragon gives us the chance to catch up with previous couple Feargus and Annwyl along with Briec's other siblings Gwenvael Éibhear and Morfyd I love the banter between the brothers and their sister and I can't wait to read each of their stories This series has been so entertaining and I have a feeling it's only going to get better with each new book

    SynopsisFor Nolwenn witch Talaith a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by wait for it a silver maned dragon Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets The dragon though? A tad unusual This one has a human form to die for and knows it According to dragon law Talaith is now his property for pleasure or otherwise But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acuiesce without a word he's in for a surpriseIs the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his but he'd counted on tongue lashings of an altogether different sort It's embarrassing really that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall No Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different and if he doesn't tread carefully what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire raceMy ReviewTalaith is a powerful witch assassin stuck in a small village far far from home like whole different country Not only does she look different from everyone else she's taller smarter and has a bit of a smart mouth She hates her husband and loathes his accusations even but she has ways of keeping him away from her Unforeseen to her though those methods are exactly what pushes her in the path of a grouchy dragon bent on keeping her as a prize Briec is a bit of a jackass he really just wants to live in peace far away from his siblings He wants to enjoy his treasures and occasional visits to the human villages without issue He likes being a dragon an all that entails This all changes rather uickly for him though when he see's the beautiful Talaith being prepared for punishment He's already tried to woo her but she's rejected him so his only choice is to simply claim what he wants an to move on What Briec doesn't realize is that Talaith isn't exactly what she seems and she's keeping a ton of secrets from him that might just kill them both It just keeps getting better it really does I loved the storyline it's hilarious to see how Talaith and Breic come to meet each other and the tug an pull that ensues once they're together Of course your also going to get all of the family drama mixed into the story because it really is a family style book where everyone has a role to play I really loved the fact that characters from the last book are in this one as well they aren't forgotten about but remain an important part of the story All the characters are well developed including all side characters This book really is hilarious with multiple romance stories and action weaved throughout the book
