This story was cute and it was amusing to read the confusion that dragon had with his "three" mates. The chemistry was very strong between the characters and they were both very likable.
The plot in this story is really interesting. It leaves you guessing what really is the assignment Keene and her team have to accomplish. And also the development of their relationship is not relly fast and makes you wonder want Bren is feeling. There are many sex scenes, but it is in many variety that it does not make you bored with it. The action scenes are many enough to balance the former. And also I like that Bren and Keene are equal in power, that Keene is not typically the damsel in distr ...more
Boy, you better be prepared to jump into this one with both feet. The crazy dynamics and 'people' juggling going on in this book will have more than your head spinning. I enjoyed the returning characters, and the consistent theme, it makes it easier to follow the craziness.
Fun read - this is the story of Bren the oldest [and somewhat stodgy:] son of Kei and Lorran. His dragon finds his mate - three times with three different women - and that's supposed to be impossible...

There's a whole lot of hot Energizer bunny sex but it has an interesting plot, good characters and cute dialog. Warning the heroine has [oral:] sex with the hero in dragon form - if that bugs you stay away from these four.

This is the third book in the series and I've loved them all. While they would easily stand on their own, why miss out on the others? I love the author's voice and have read others stories of hers. This series is my favorite so far, half fairy-tale, half really hot romance. There are a lot of love scenes and they're very well done, but there's plenty of story and character development too, and the conflicts are believable.

This book starts out pretty slow, I think, and speeds up from middle to end. The beginning is mostly lots of steam (ahem) and after a while, even that can get a bit tiresome. As yet, this is my least favorite of the first three books.

But, like the previous two books, St Clare has outdone herself with the interesting premise, characters, and storyline. Nicely done. Nicely done.
Ok here is the thing. I was not really interested in this prince's story. To be honest it was boring. I Found myself more interested in his sisters story and how they would find her if they ever did. I could not really get into the whole spy thing. It was tedious at best and probaly one of those books that was maybe a complete waste of time.

Tielle (pronounced "teal") St. Clare has had life-long love of romance novels. She began reading romances in the 7th grade when she discovered Victoria Holt novels and began writing romances at the age of 16 (during Trigonometry, if the truth be told). During her senior year in high school, the class dressed up as what they would be in twenty years-Tielle dressed as a romance writer.
