To save her sister, can Catriona slay the Dragon Slayer?

Ruard, the Viking warrior known as The Dragon Slayer, has no great hopes for the wife he’s to take as the lord of Dunnsmuir Castle, so long as she’s a biddable wife, with all her teeth, who doesn’t drool—a plain, humble woman. He has no use for the flame-haired nymph with breasts as ripe as melons and whose supple hip

Oh my good Lord above! Did I adore this book? Yes, I did. I haven’t read as far back in time as the Vikings, and who knew how sexy they could be? I’m sincere in saying here that I loved Ruard. He was so sexy, so masculine, so absolutely yum-yum that every time he was in a scene I got all hyper. He made me squirm, dream, and get more than hot under the collar. What a fine specimen of hunkness he is.


He weds Catriona, who is worried sick about her sister—she’s being held captive by a nasty piece of

The Dragon Slayer was incredibly sweet. Our hero, Ruard is an honourable, manly, just, honest, sexy Viking! What more could I ask for in a hero? Catriona on the other hand is his perfect counterpart: defiant, yet at the same time compliant, worried for her loved ones, smart, efficient, sweet and pleasant. The author knows her character well and comes up with clever names such as “Catriona the Pure” or “Catriona the Siren”.

I normally don't rate books below a three star. But I have to rate this a 2.5 star because I feel like the author took the easy way out. There was very little plot, conflict or even any internal conflict going on. The characters meet on their wedding day and within pages you have your first love scene. Which granted that happens on wedding nights but within this very short novella, I counted five or six love scenes. While I don't mind love scenes, I feel like many were just tossed into the mix j

Synopsis: "To save her sister, can Catriona slay the Dragon Slayer?

Ruard, the Viking warrior known as The Dragon Slayer, has no great hopes for the wife he’s to take as the lord of Dunnsmuir Castle, so long as she’s a biddable wife, with all her teeth, who doesn’t drool—a plain, humble woman. He has no use for the flame-haired nymph with breasts as ripe as melons and whose supple hips beckon a man’s hands. Nor for a maiden with a stubborn chin and flashing eyes that speak of naught but trouble.

Review by Lisa: Short, sweet and definitely hot! The Dragon Slayer by Jianne Carlo is a delicious escape to the Northumbrian Border. Ruard and Catriona enter into their marriage with two very different objectives. Ruard wants to become Lord of Dunsmuir Castle and Catriona wants to save her sister from Lord Ulfric. The chemistry between Ruard and Catriona sizzles off the page. The author’s description of Dunsmuir Castle and the surrounding lands paint a picture of a time long ago. I enjoyed the r ...more

This is not the type of book I usually read. I tend to stick with contemporary or paranormal romances. This book hooked me from page one. I fell in love with both characters immediately. Ruard is a strong, sexy hero. Catriona is also a great female lead with a good head on her shoulders. The Viking environment was so natural and authentic that I had no problem feeling that I was there. One of my favorite things was how the dialogue had a musical quality. This was my first book from Jianne Carlo, ...more

Good hot fast read. Like the first book it's starts at the get go and they are tuppin like bunnies. There's story but not much of one. You like the characters but just want more than is given. It's a good read for those who want a fast hot romance. If ur wanting a great story that'll suck u in with an amazing love story look someplace else.

This one ways the same as the frist. The women in these books are given to the men on a silver plater. they dont have to work to win their love its given ritght off before they even get to know the men.I hope the third book is better but I'm not going to hold my breath.

First read this one back in 2012. If you love big strong, alpha vikings, a strong heroine and some really hot scenes, this one is for you. Would love for it to be longer but the story was complete and the characters fully developed.

Love these Viking books. Particularly like the way women are protrayed - Ruard is sexy and decisive. Catriona is spunky and determined. And, as always, the sex is smoking. Cant' wait for the other brothers' novellas.

Award winning, author Jianne Carlo’s motto is simple: Alpha Me Please.

While strong heroines, exotic locations, and cultural differences are her forte, she goes weak in the knees for warriors of any type, rebels, SEAls, Vikings, and bad-ass mercenaries. Send her a man with an attitude and she’ll find the right woman to tame him.

Nothing makes Jianne’s day more than an email from someone who’s read
