Publisher's Summary

I know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail's length. A technique that's worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who've come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile. Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless, and, to my great annoyance, rather stupid!

Yet I'll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he'll learn my worth, my many skills, and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him, and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him to his knees.

Critic Reviews

"[An] offbeat tale that's filled with buckets of humor as well as a dash of treachery." ( RT Book Reviews)

Pretty good addition to the series :)

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I was a bit leery of both MCs but they seemed to work well together and it all worked out nicely in the end.

Keita is a dragoness and the youngest daughter of the dragon Queen. Keita isn't a fighter like most of her siblings and gives everyone the idea that she's shallow, flighty and sleeps with tons of men. The image Keita portrays is mostly true but there is more depth to her that she doesn't allow others to see.

Ragnar is a Lightning dragon from the Northern territories and is the leader of his clan. Ragnar is both a warrior and mage and is cunning in his efforts to keep his people secure and safe.

Ragnar had kidnapped Keita a couple of years before in an effort to broker a deal with her mother. The deal went through regardless of Keita being part of it and Keita was pissed off because not only did her mother not bother to barter for her, Ragnar didn't fall for her simpering female act that got most men to fall in line for her. They didn't see each other again for a couple years but Ragnar is summoned south by the dragon Queen and happens across Keita on the trip...just as she's about to be hung by a local Lord for a crime she claimed she didn't commit. Ragnar isn't thrilled about it but he does help Keita and she accompanies his group on their journey south.

Things between Ragnar and Keita don't escalate into a relationship right away...Keita wouldn't have an issue bedding him but Ragnar isn't interested in the shallow, flighty brat that Keita seems to be. The longer they travel together though, the more depth Ragnar sees in Keita and he realizes that she isn't just flitting around aimlessly but actually seems to have a purpose. Ragnar and Keita do eventually become involved but Keita has an issue with "being tied down" and she makes it quite clear to Ragnar that she'll never be ok with being officially "claimed". Ragnar knows he wants Keita so he helps her with her mission and figures he'll have to work on her emotionally without letting her know he wants something more permanent. Things do get worked out and although she still has an issue with the official "claiming" Keita and Ragnar do end the story together in what appears to be a HEA.

This was a pretty enjoyable story. I didn't really like Keita in the earlier books or in the beginning of this one. She grew on me as the story went but she will never be a "well liked" heroine for me. Speaking of which...I used to like Talaith (MC from book #2) but it's like Aiken is trying to make her the worst mother ever! WTH?!?! Ragnar had me a bit leery in the previous book but I was pretty sure he was a good guy by the end of it. In this book, I liked him a lot and thought he did well at handling Keita. Overall, I liked the characters and thought the story was very good. I'd recommend this story/series. :)

Wonderful continuation of conflict

Continuation of the stories of flawed human warriors (females & males) & their dragon companions. Lovers, friends & comrades. I LOVE all the characters in this world of magic & 2 suns. The way the "GODS" meddle with humans for entertainment. The passion of the dragon lovers once they find that "one". How characters from different backgrounds & walks of life become "family" & good friends OR enemies.. But the fight scenes are EPIC!! Such detail & gripping action. I found myself with my head out of my car window cheering Annwell on. Fighting for the weak & seeking justice for females treated cruelly.. G.A. AIKEN.. Thank you..

Awfully annoying voice

Would you try another book from G. A. Aiken and/or Hollie Jackson?

yes, maybe. Maybe after a loooong brake.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator gave almost all the females a high pitched whiny voice. So annoying.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The awful female voices stole the thunder.

Complicated family

As is the same for all of the books in this series, I’ll have to listen to it 3 or 4 times to figure out what happened. But that’s ok, because the characters are funny and it reminds me of holidays with my family. Way too many cousins, lots of confusion, misunderstandings, love, and smart-ass comments.
Hollie Jackson is excellent with voices. I enjoy listening to her bringing the story to life.

Great story, improving narrator

The story continues to be enthralling. The narrator is either growing on me or improving. Her male voices definitely seem better in this book than in any of the previous ones in this series she has narrated.

Humor in the Dragon Kin family relations

I'm thrilled with the relational conflicts and the humor this author provides through the dialogue.

What Happens Next

Love the stories about the Dragon Kin. Why have Audible stopped at book 4? These books are highly entertaining with bickering siblings and their mates and their relationships with one another. They make me laugh out loud. Now they are going off to fight their enemies and have amazing adventures and I am unable to carry on as I am now sight impaired. Gwenvael would say "that's mean"...

I have just loved this book.

The dragon characters just made me laugh out loud so many times and the interaction between the siblings and their mates just brilliant. Can't wait to read the next one!
