They're bad boys-with that little something extra. Sexy, wild, out-of-this-world talents that can leave any woman feeling weak at the knees (among other body parts), they're the ones to call when you want pleasure that lasts…and lasts...

SHELLY LAURENSTON
CAN'T GET ENOUGH
Even for a dragon, Ailean the Wicked has a bad reputation. For 150 years he's been renowned for his fight

Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release: Sep2008

Romance readers fall into two camps; those who like anthologies and those who hate ‘em. I’m in the like ‘em camp for a few good reasons. First, the stories are shorter so I don’t end up staying awake all night to finish; I can just read one or two of the stories and still ‘be done’, at least for a while. Second, I enjoy the opportunity to read different voices on (usually) the same general subject matter. Seeing how different authors interpret

Ailean is a Cadwaladr, which means he's a deadly fighter and well known for his devotion to his clan an protecting the crown. Ailean didn't get his title of "Wicked" for his fighting skills, he earned that through his whoring ways. Most fathers, both dragon an human, hate Ailean with a passion because of his lusty ways. He's not known to make commitments or stick around any of the ladies he seduces. This has got him into serious trouble, specially with the princess who happens to be infatuated w ...more

I'll review the stories as I go:

1. Can't Get Enough by Shelly Laurentson (Dragon Kin #2.5). Remember the short story at the end of Dragon Actually? Well, this is the story about Bercelak's mom and dad, Ailean and Shalin. Ailean runs into Shalin who he met years earlier and tries to help her after a jealous princess sells her to the Northern Dragons. They fall in love and there's a very cute ending about when Bercelak was born. Very good story.

2. Spellbound by Cynthia Eden. Serena summons Luis to

"Bizim sahip olduğumuz şeyi bulabileceğini düşünüyor musun?" diye fısıldadı, sesi uyuşuk geliyordu, vücudu onunkine yaslanmıştı. Ailesini kalbine yakın tutup Ailean fısıldayarak cevapladı, "O kadar şanslı olacağını sadece umabiliriz."

İlk hikayeden olan bu alıntı bence kitabın ne kadar güzel olduğunu anlatıyor. Diğer kitaplarda adı defalarca geçen Ailean'ı okuma şansı bulduğum için çok mutluyum onun sevgili eşiyle olan ilişkisi öyle güzel ve büyüleyciydi ki kitaptaki diğer hikayeleri bayağı bir s

Only read Shelly Laurenston's novella. A sweet story about a bookish dragoness and a sometimes obnoxious warrior dragon. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between Shalin & Ailean. And I loved that Shallin was a scholar rather than a warrior. Now the long wait for Laurenston's next release continues...
Esma
Çok komiktiii :D Yazar hiç sıkmadan hikayeyi bitirdi. :D Çok çok hoşuma gitti hemen Bercelak'ın ( aslında ismi konulurken babası "little bastard" ismini uygun görmüştü :D ) kitabına başlayacağım.

Konuya gelirsek, Shalin okumayı seven nadir ejderhalardan biridir. Sessiz sakin, etliye sütlüye karışmaz bir havası vardır ve bu yüzden "Masum" (innocent) unvanını almış. Aynı zamanda prenses Adienna nın arkadaşıdır. Ama canciğer kuzu sarması değiller. Çünkü Adienna Shalin ve Ailean arasında bir şeyler o

1. Can't Get Enough: dragons - 3-4. It's funny.
2. Spellbound: witches, demons, warlock - 3-4
3. Turn Me On - 1. About a man who was once light. Yeah, that made no sense to me either.
Kathy Davie
Three stories in this anthology about immortal bad boys.


The Stories
Shelly Laurenston's Can't Get Enough finds Ailean, a dragon shifter escaping yet another girl's bed when he runs into Shalin the Innocent, a dragon shifter living as a human after being targeted by Princess Adienna for being more important to Ailean than she. Now the princess has sold Shalin to the enemy.

This is too funny with its unique twist on pets and dinner. A Laurenston-classic as Shalin is immersed in the exceedingly bois

3.5/5; 4 stars; A-

I just read the Shelley Laurenston story. This should rightly be under G.A. Aiken as the story is part of her dragon kin series. It was funny and sweet. It was the story of Bercelak the Black's parents and how they met.
Kaleigha
OK. Again with the anthologies. First up was Shelly Laurenston, aka G.A. Aiken, starts things with an entry from her Dragon Kin series. We go back to the beginning, and get the story of Ailean and Shalin (the grandparents of the current crop of dragons). Ailean is what you might call...easy. Very easy. Human. Dragon. As long as it is female, and breathing, Ailean is interested. But the one Dragoness who has always interested him is Shalin the Innocent. When fate brings them back together and Sha ...more

NB: This rating is only for Can't Get Enough by Shelly Laurenston

Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. It was good, but not as good as I expected it to be, given how interesting Shalin and Ailean and their backstory are in the snippets we get in the other books in this series. Okay now that was an exceedingly long run-on sentence, but you catch my drift.
Lynda Tatad
One story is about a dragon winning over his mate, but in human form as much as in dragon form. There's humor, the Cadwalder dragon clan's fighting prowess and rowdiness, Royal Dragon's and the future parents of the dragon Bercelak! For fans of GA Aiken's Dragon Kin series.

The next story is about a desperate witch summoning a dangerous predator to save her coven from a dark warlock! What she wasn't prepared for was her attraction for him! Pretty sizzling story, but I really liked the characters

by Shelly Laurenston and loved it. Ailean the Wicked notorious for his conquests meets his match in Shalin the Innocent who leads him on a merry chase. These two are the parents of Bercelak etc

I actually only read this one because I wanna read Ailean story...and its really greaattt!!
Even thou I still didn't get the reason why Ailean go for 'subtle' brand. I always like how Shelly Laurenston make the heroine. Its just unique and fresh!

And on my free time I read the Spell Bound. Its good too~ eventhou I feel like kicking Luis ass in the end when he leave. And I think because it's kinda 'short' story...its okay to end it a little rush. Like how Serena know she want to be with Luis fore

I read this book because of the high ratings it received on Goodreads and it is a part of the Dragon Kin series, which I really like. This is my first time being so let down. This book is absolutely horrid. The writing is poor and the dialogue elementary. I find it hard to believe that anyone found this book acceptable. Can't Get Enough is the better of the 3 stories, which is good since it is half the book, but I really believe as a whole this book was a waste of my time. There are too many wel ...more

There are three good reads in this anthology: CAN'T GET ENOUGH by Shelly Laurenston, SPELLBOUND by Cynthia Eden, and TURN ME ON by Noelle Mack

The first is funny, the second is serious and the third is somewhere between the two...


Arrogant dragons who seriously annoy their ladies-of-choice... Who knew? This series of Shelley Laurenston's is frequently fall out of your chair funny...

Correct order is not extremely important, but you will be missing some of the subplots if you read them out of order.

This is the first time I've read any of these authors and as is usual with an anthology, the reviews are mixed. One I loved, one I thought was only ok, and one was too odd to be good.

Can't get enough- it surprised me that this was a dragon series book, because Shelly writes them under the G A Aiken pseudonym , but I love that series, so it wasn't a bad surprise. This is the story of Shalin the Innocent and Alean the whore! Bercylac's parents. Typical of Shelly it is funny a

I love the characters that Shelley creates. This goes for all her characters in her various series. They are just a touch crazy so it makes them an incredibly enjoyable read. Shalin and Ailean were no different. Shalin has been misunderstood by all around her, so has Ailean, him for completely different reasons. They get into much mischief on their crazy train to a happily ever after. I’m looking forward to venturing further into Laurensto

5 Stars: "Can't Get Enough" by Shelly Laurenston. Shelly writes her Dragon Kin series under the name G.A. Aiken. I love her Dragon Kin series, the world she creates is fun and entertaining, and this novella was wonderful to read. It was quick, cute, and funny! Fans of the Dragon Kin series will want to read and thoughs whom have not read this series will enjoy the story as well. It's about Ailean the Wicked also know as Ailean the Whore as well as many other names and Shalin the Innocent. Ailean ...more

The only enjoyable story in this compilation was G.A. Aiken's addition to her Dragon Kin series, "Can't Get Enough." I absolutely loved the backstory of Ailean and Shalin, and it was so much fun getting to see them interact with Aiken's trademark nosy families, banter, humor, romance, and fantastic characters. For this story on it's on I would have rated it 3/5 stars.

The other ones? Not so much.

In "Spellabound", a witch (Serena) and a soul-hunter (Luis) get together to defeat an evil force atte

I only read the G.A. Aiken and Cynthia Eden's contributions so far.

Can't Get Enough by G.A. Aiken/ Shelly Laurenston- A prequel to her Dragon Kin series. I enjoyed it. Short enough to not drag out some things and still long enough to get a good feel for the relationship between Ailean and Shalin. There was a perfect amount of steam and romance. I am going to continue working my way through this series. A full review will follow as always on my blog.

*Note: This review is only for Can't Get Enough by Shelly Laurenston.*

The Adventures of Eileen (male) and Shaolin (female)! (Or that's how I kept pronouncing their names in my head, which, let me tell you, wasn't particularly sexy.)

There were some amusing moments, but I can't say I liked it all that much. The writing style felt kind of awkward to me. And I didn't really like the hero at all. I mean, with a name like Ailean the Whore, how could I not like him? Oh, the wonders of knowing he's had

I am beginning to dislike anthologies. Why? Some authors can write short stories well and others not so much. I picked up this anthology from the library so that I could read the story "Can't Get Enough" by Shelly Laurenston aka G.A. Aiken. I wasn't disappointed. I thought the romance was built up quite nicely and the resolution was quite satisfying. Her trademark humour was sprinkled throughout the story and it was entertaining.

The second story was "Spellbound" by Cynthia Eden. I tried to read

I loved the first two stories. No surprise there. Shelly Laurenston is one of my favorite authors and what I've read of Cynthia Eden I've liked so far. Turn Me On by Noelle Mack however, was a trip to la la land. It would have been better if I liked any of the characters other than the old lady on the tricycle who had maybe two lines.

Can’t Get Enough by Shelly Laurenston (4.5 stars)
The whole reason I got this - I’ve read the entire Dragon Kin series, but I’ve never gotten the chance to read this. Love Ailean and Shalin, Laurenston’s trademark humor and sexy time.
