Maiden Flight (Dragon Knights #1)
First in the Dragon Knights series.
War is coming for the knights, dragons, and a damsel who is not quite in distress, but finds her heart’s desire in the strong men of the Border Lair.
A chance meeting with a young male dragon seals the fate of one adventurous female poacher. The dragon’s partner, a ruggedly handsome knight named Gareth, takes one look at the shapely woma...more
Those are my notes and I am too lazy to write a proper review... Enjoy.
15% they know each other for, hmmm, half an hour, give or take a few minutes, and they are already in love and had sex
16% after about another hour they have sex again and she thinks
*quote*She knew a baby could come of what they’d just done, but didn’t care. Or rather, she kind of liked the idea of having this knight’s baby, even if she never saw him again.*/quote*
16% Come on! Seriously?!

Dragons are paired up with Knights to protect the borders of the kingdom. The Knights and Dragons are able to communicate telepathically and empathically. So Rule #1 of the world is that a Dragon can't mate unless their Knight mates first. Otherwise, the Knights will go insane from the crazed lust they experience from dragon sex. If the knight has a mate then they just go running in search of each other like their hoo haa is on fire when the dra ...more

Bianca D’Arc takes readers into an alternate world where dragons exist. In this unique world, dragons are bounded to their knights in a way that makes them both experience what the other is feeling. When Bolera, a fair maiden goes out to hunt a stag for some food for her family, she comes across a huge dragon named Kelvan who tries to steal her latest game. As they argue over who made the kill, they decide to see Sir Gareth, the dragon’s knight to settle this matter.
When I read Bianca D'Arc's Maiden Flight I couldn't help but compare life in the lair to life in the weyr, as in dragon's weyr. I don't know if the author intended the story as a more liberated, or at least kinkier response to Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern, I'd be astonished if some parallel wasn't meant.
And the sexual aspects of McCaffrey's Dragonriders world really did need to be addressed, but we'll get there later.
Meanwhile, about this particula ...more
Dragons are paired with Knights to help keep the Kingdom safe. Because humans bond with the Dragons, they can feel the mating frenzy so Dragons can't mate until their paired Knights mate; but human females that can bond with dragons are rare so when one is found they usually mate with 2 Knights.
There is minimal conflict. A slight skirmish between the dragons and another species which results in Belora's mother being convin ...more
I even gave the second book a chance,hoping I'd like it better, but I ran into the same issue. Great story potential but a little disappointing. They both did not seem to have smooth transitions, and the story jumped too much. For example, when the knights ...more

I always on the look out for books with Dragons, so was happy to find this series. I enjoyed it. The world is quite unique. It has dragons and Knights that are bound in a way that makes them both experience what the other is feeling. The romance happens quickly, definitely insta-love. I like the characters. It was a fun, light read. A book not to be taken seriously. I'm looking forward reading more in this series, especially as there may be hints of ...more
The plot was miniscule; the wtf-ery was legion. The dragons were (sigh) annoying and the human characters, as another reviewer pointed out, were saccharine-sweet to the point of (at best) eye rolling and (at worst), irritation and nausea. Kelzy the leader's dragon had a voice that I kept thinking reminded me of Madea (you know, Madea goes to jail, Madea's ...more
Are you considering leaving a negative review? Might want to take a look at this post from the author:
I wish now I had properly reviewed the book after I finished reading my (paid for, which I note only because that would make my opinion more valid somehow? I don't get it, either.) copy of it. Instead I went with my shoot-from-the-hip grumpy shelving method. Ah well.
Forewarned is forearmed. Good luck.
This is an adult only book, erotic M/F/M scenes.

If Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern had a sexual life, this might be it. Dragons and their knights protect the land against the evil, salaman ...more
For the most part, I am not a fan of insta-attraction, usually because it is not well done and removes a lot of potential ...more
This was a pretty good story. It's the first I've read by Bianca D'Arc but based on this I might try more of her work in the future.
Bolera is 18 and lives alone with her mother. She's out hunting a deer one day when, right after she shot it in the heart with her arrow, a dragon comes down and takes off with her deer. She chases him and finds where he lands and starts insisting that he give her back the deer. Instead of giving it back, the dragon carries her off...

Magical, Mystical, Sensual . . . Enjoyable! While definitely all about the sex, this story brings a clear plot and a well-thought world in which our heroes and heroine have the pleasure of interacting. Perhaps I should say heroes and heroines . . . as the dragons are most certainly a major player in the plot of the story.
There is never any inter-species hanky panky occurring, but the plot outlines a world where the dragon and its rid ...more
What a cute read! I'm not even sure why I enjoyed this book so much. It is a very light read, with little substance, little plot, and so much fluff it borders on cheesy at times. Although this is categorized as erotica, I would think even that aspect of this book is light as well compared to other books I have read, like a basic cable version of an HBO show. Obviously, this book is not for everyone and I can definitely see why.
And yet, it was exactly what I needed as a break from heavi ...more
Dragons, their knights, their Lair, their ways of making a family.
A healer, her mother a healer, brought in,
War on the horizon, has it all
Action, Romance, and some kinky sex
...like a little threesome in their sexin'.
...enjoy when the passions of a dragon spurs on their rider.
...like when there's plenty of set-up for later books.
...get a kick out of love at first sight.
Enjoyable for the most part. But then, I'm always down for a hot threesome fueled by draconic lusts. *rereads my last sentence and nods* Yeah, that. Basically, if threesomes are your thing and you like dragons (not dragon-threesomes, mind you, because that would be aw ...more
dragons have knights. knights and dragons are bonded and share a great deal. when dragons pair for mating, they cannot join fully til their knights have found a mate too. since there are few women who can be around dragons or hear them, each pair of knights will share a single wife.
enter lots of multi partner sex.
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 ...more
