About a Dragon

About a Dragon
Dragon Kin bk 2

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…

REVIEW: This is another of those great library finds of mine. From the moment I picked up this book I loved it. The characters, all of them, are such rich characters. Their personalities are very well written.

Talaith is a witch and for the last several years has had to bury her true personality and be someone she isn’t. The reason for this is a HUGE part of who she is and I don’t want to give it away. She is snarky, and bitchy, and I loved her. When Briec rescues her, he expects her to be his sex slave, but that isn’t what she has in mind. When they are forced to take refuge with his little brothers due to the weather, she is finally able to be the person that she truly is, except for a few secrets.

I loved her interactions with his brothers. They are really funny, and got Briec all up in arms because she was nice to them, and mean to him, and he was the one that saved her.

Briec isn’t just any ole dragon, he is a Dragon Prince. He is used to women falling all over him, so when Talaith doesn’t fall at his feet he gets angry, especially when she is nice to his brothers. The snapping, and snarky comments however soon begin to have an effect on them both.

It makes them tear each others clothes off.

As this story progresses, and you find out more about Talaith (I don’t want to give it away so I’m being very vague concerning her), and why she makes the decisions that she does. Briec we discover is more than an horny dragon, well he is a horny dragon, but he has a side the he keeps very much to himself.

Overall I really enjoyed this book, and have the second book on my bookshelf. When looking up the information on this book I discovered that it was previously published under a different title, and also under the other other name that this author writes under. It was previously published under the title The Distressing Damsel by Shelly Laurenston.

I give this book a 4.25 out of 5.

You can purchase the book here, here and here.

    I've read the first book in the series Dragon Actually(http://cherrymischievous.blogspot.com/2009/09/dragon-actually.html). I enjoyed it but was not hooked so stopped reading the series. But by your review, this second book looks more interesting than the first one though, so I'm going to read through the series. Thanks!

    For some reason the first book wasn't as good, but the second one was great. I have the third on my tbr pile and will be reading it on my trip this week.

    I keep seeing this series and every I say I am going to pick it up. But darn it I mean it this time! Off to PBS to see if I can get it. Talaith seems like my kind of girl!

    Mandi you won't regret it. Just don't judge the series based on the first book.

    I went to Borders and bought About a Dragon today!! Can I start with this one or do your recommend starting with Dragon Actually?

    I started with About a Dragon, don't have to much desire to read the first book. I will probably read it eventually 🙂
