He loves chaining up Princess Rhiannon and is determined to convince her she's his. They are crazy but fun to read.

Overall, a quick fun read with snarky, spunky heroine. Tried too hard for the spunkiness or humor in parts; bit too much dwelling on male sex organs.

With the exception of the male love interest, I liked the characters and was glad to see how the new queen was getting along. I just never warmed up to Briec. He was an arrogant dick start to finish and even the good things he did -- like rescuing her from an angry mob -- were in expectation of gratitude or reward. Instantly adapting to sort of stepfatherhood towards the end came out of the blue and out of character.

I'm sure I would have enjoyed this much more if I could have warmed up to the male lead in the paranormal romance. ( )

I loved this book. I love the quirky humour and sassy characters. Brilliant and a must read if you like shifter stories!

Synopsis:
Talaith's life has never been easy. A goddess has forced her into servitude. Her husband despises her. And all those in her tiny village fear her. But just when she doesn't think her life can get any worse, she's pulled from her bed one morning to be burned at the stake for being a witch. What she never counted on was a terrifying silver dragon deciding to rescue her.

Briec the Mighty didn't really know what to do with a human female. Especially this one. Chatty and a bit of a complainer, he doesn't understand why she can't simply admit to herself that she wants him. Who wouldn't? He was Briec the Mighty after all. Females fought to spend the night in his arms. But this one tiny woman with her many secrets and her annoying habit of referring to him as "arrogant" has turned his simple dragon life upside down.

Synopsis
Rescued by a dragon after nearly being burned at the stake, Talaith finds herself in debt to Briec the Mighty who sees her as his property and will stop at nothing the have her. Unfortunately for Briec, Talaith has other plans and as no intention of submitting to the arrogant dragon.

Review
The world building is weak and vague and although the plot has potential with secret assassins and interfering Gods, it ends up lacking substance.

Talaith's sarcasm and Briec's ego provide excellent banter and some laugh out loud moments. However, their constant sniping and snapping becomes tedious after a while and a relationship based on bickering is not the healthiest. Moreover, the sex scenes do not contribute to the romance and feel more like filler than anything else.

The secondary characters are the real highlight. The dynamic between the dragon siblings is hilarious and the updates in Annwyl and Fearghus's relationship are great. It is just unfortunate that Morfyd and Brasties's budding romance remains underdeveloped though.

On a final note, if there is such a thing as excessively kick-ass heroines, then this series has them. Annwyl, Morfyd, Talaith and now Izzy have an overabundance of estrogen and while it is kinda cool having such powerful women, it is also a little difficult to entirely accept.

In sum, I was considering giving the rest of the series a miss until the intriguing epilogue. It seems that Gwenvael has meet his match, which should be very entertaining. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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...… (more)
