I enjoyed this story just as much as the others, even though there aren't many scenes with the dragons. Nico finds the last missing daughter of Adora in the 4th installment of Dragon Knights. More is learned about the evil threat of Lucan and the mystery surrounding the witch, Loralei grows.

This is the story of Prince Nico King Rolands brother who we have already met in the previous books and Riki, Lanas lost twin sister. Nico is the head of the Draconian "intelligence service" the James Bond of the dragons so to speak and he leaves Draconia on a mission to find out more about King Lucans plans for war. Because of treachery he is caught by Lucans guards and brought to the Kings rooms where he finds a malnourished girl chained to Lucans bed. Of course chains cant hold back a Black d ...more

I've been enjoying this series over the last few days and I like that the author is developing and expanding the world created. I liked the relationship between Nico and Riki. I would have liked a more of the reunion between Riki and her sister and seen her reunited with her mother and youngest sister. Moving onto the next book soon.

i enjoyed this, although it does move really fast from meeting to sex!
again, only single partner sex (for the most part)

there is an under story, but it doesnt hold up much as i've gone on to read all the others in this series.

not a bad, short story. they could have been made longer, developing the story, as opposed to all the sex!

Dragon intrigue and lots of romance as well.

Prince of spies is the fourth in this series and is brimming with nefarious plans and lots of new characters. I loved the way the story unfolded slowly with lots of plot twists. The romance was spicy and plentiful with so much love and humor it made my heart sing. I cannot say enough about how much this series makes me smile and feel good. It is the best medicine for a bad day. You can't be sad or angry while reading a Bianca D'Arc book!
First paragraph: Under cover of darkness, the black dragon slipped across the border into Skithdron, his dark hide blending with the night. Nico truly was the Prince of Spies and he was on a noble quest. The North Witch, Loralie, had intimated that his new queen’s missing sister was in Skithdron, but Nico hoped his agents might provide more specific information.

The fourth in the Dragon Knights series, "Prince of Spies" continues the story of the missing sisters of Kent with the discovery and res
This is the first novel I've read from Bianca D'Arc and all I can say is: not bad, not bad at all. I only read this because in response to a reading challenge, and I'm glad it could be read as standalone. It's the fourth book in the Dragon Knights series and I'm wary of reading a book in a series out of order, but found myself enjoying this.

It started out slow but the pace soon picked up after Nico and Riki escaped. I'm always fascinated by dragon-themed stories and this one is no exception. I'v

Apparently dragons are exhibitionis

Pretty sure this is an entertaining story as I enjoyed King Roland's story. As much as Prince Nico intrigued me, his story with Riki was based on love at first sight. nothing much to read about there because there was no sexual tension and etc

But without a doubt I know that Nico is alike his brother and he will be a great hero and partner to Riki.

Love Ms Bianca's books. I had read maiden flight a while ago. Had me enthralled from the first page. It takes you on the journey with the characters as if you're actually there. Love it!!! The only complaint I have is I'm done reading the book and then I have to come back to the real world
This book is worth the wait I have had. Most of Miss B's books come out in ereader form first. I end up having to wait for it to get to #acpl. This time it seems someone other than I have been anxious too. Niccy popped in when his brother found his mate. And I have wanted him since. Miss D'arc does not disappoint. I was instantly caught up, and loved every minute this ride/book gave me.

This story upset me the most of all the stories in this series, because the author took the abused main character and made her the object of a threesome without providing her healing from her abuse. She wrapped her up in the blanket of I'm strong and silently suffer blah, blah, blah. This kind of thing pisses me off because really how much does it take to write in her healing before she makes her the center of a man sandwich.

That said I still don't really care for the sex part of this book but

Very impressive!

The story seems to become better with each new addition of characters and the plot thickens! I'm glad to see it was worth the price! On to the next in line....

I feel this book tries to compete with the previous one: there are a lot of comparations between Lara and Riki, the two FMC. That's what made this story less enjoyable for me. Sorry.

after her sisters story this one just fell a little flat. still a good story but just wasn't up to the previous book
This is book four in the Dragon's series. It was a great addition to the series. I loved the story.

Prince Nico is the Prince of Spies or the Spymaster of Draconia, but he’s also a cunning shapeshifter, able to take the form of a dragon at will. Forced to use her draining healing skills to keep King Lucan of Skithdron alive, Riki is a shadow of the woman she should be. Nico knows Ricki is the woman he’s been searching for and wastes no time breaking them both out of the enemy palace. [return]Really hoping for a good sequel to the Ice Dragon that didn't pan out. However, still might have promis ...more

I am just loving this series. Great adventure, erotic but beautifully portrayed sex scenes, villainous villains and honourable heroes and to top it off , dragons! What more could you want?
I've always loved Nico and his finding a mate to match him well, as well as introducing more characters to follow, makes this book another joy.
Jan 16, 2016 Kate rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I really enjoyed this book & this world! The hero & heroine were strong people in their in their own right but learned to respect and love each other as time went on. There was action and intrigue that keep me glued to the book! I look forward to reading more in the series! Great book!!
oh I was so eager for Nico's book with all the teasing bits in the other books and this did not fail to please me.

I liked Riki and Nico together, and the scenes with Drake made me eager for the next book.

The introduction of the Jinn was nicely done as well

Great writing and story.

This was a good book though it seemed a bit rushed compared to the previous ones in the series. I still enjoyed the story and how everything was brought together as well as the not so clear ending to want to read the next book to see what happens to the Kingdom.

Adults only.
Sappy, repetitive dialog "He was so handsome and kind. How I loved him."
This appeared many times. Gag. Still...the story isn't over yet so I am still reading. Tor was precious, and I was happy to see Lana discover her hidden abilities.

Great Short! The second in the series that I have read. Strong Characters, great leading lady,

We were introduced to the leading man in the story before this one, that's why I bought this one, and, I wasn't disappointed!

This was a great book in the series. I enjoyed it a lot. It's about the spy brother and his search for information as well as the search for lost twin sister his Queen has been looking for.

This is a wonderful addition to the Dragon Knight series. It brings all of the "lost" characters back together and solidifies some of the open ends left from the first 3 books.
