About A Dragon, by G.A. Aiken

12 Feb

Format: Kindle edition, 353 pages

Publisher: Zebra
Back cover blurb:
For 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 acquiesce without a word, he’s in for a surprise…

Is 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 race…

My review:
Is it wrong of me to like the secondary characters more than the main couple? This book, the second in the Dragon Kin series, began a bit slowly and I was of two minds about it, but the party really started once Gwenvael walked in. He is just hilarious, and thankfully brought out the playful side of gruff, serious Briec. I love the other brothers, too, and was pleased to see Morfyd and Brastias finally getting it together after two books of UST. The next book is Gwenvael’s, and I’m looking forward to seeing how he copes with being tamed by a woman. I’m sure if she hits him it will only be an “accident”.
My rating: 4/5
