Even for a dragon, Ailean the Wicked has a bad reputation. For 150 years he's been renowned for...more

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...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...more

"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...more

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...more

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...more

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

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...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...

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

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.

I GIVE THIS BOOK 4 STARS AS A WHOLE. THE FIRST STORY, CAN'T GET ENOUGH, BY SHELLY LAURENSTON 4 STARS,
THE SECOND STORY, SPELLBOUND, BY CYNTHIA EDEN- 4 STARS, THE LAST STORY,TURN MR ON,BY NOELLE MACK- 1 STAR

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...more

Can’t Get Enough by Shelley Laurenston. 4 Stars, 4 Flames
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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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.

Loved the plot, loved the characters, and will probably read it again. I only wish there was more (as always).

“Can’t Get Enough” by Shelly Laurenston

เป็นเล่มเกริ่นเรื่องของชุด Dragon Kin ค่ะ
ตอนแรกสนใจจะอ่าน Dragon Actually ค่ะ
แต่เนื่องจากไม่เคยอ่านของนักเขียนท่านนี้
รวมถึงไม่เคยอ่านอะไรที่เกี่ยวกับมังกรเลย
กลัวว่าจะไม่สนุกค่ะ
ขอเริ่มด้วยเล่มนี้ดีกว่า มันสั้นกว่าเยอะ

เล่มนี้เป็นเล่มของพ่อ-แม่พระเอกเล่ม Dragon Actually ค่ะ
Ailean the Wicked กับ Shalin the Innocent
ซึ่งจะเป็นอะไรที่ต่างกันสุดขั้วกันไปเลย
แต่จริง ๆ แล้วพระเอกก็ไม่ได้ร้าย และ นางเอกก็ไม่ได้ดีอย่างที่ใคร ๆ เข้าใจ

"Can't Get Enough" by Shelly Laurenston - 4 stars

The dragon kin story continues - or here, tells the earlier story of Shalin the Innocent and Ailean the Slag, the parents of Bercelak, another dragon shifter featured in the "Chains & Flames" short story attached to Dragon Actually. As always, great humor, witty dialogue, interestingly insane characters, a love of violence. Recommended.

"Spellbound" by Cynthia Eden - 4 stars

This is my first time reading Cynthia Eden, and I will definitely move...more

This Review is only for "Can't Get Enough" by G.A. Aiken at the moment.

This is an entirely different series from anything I've read before. Dragon shifters? Wow! I really enjoyed all the differences, it's nice to read something that's not familiar in any way.
Dragon shifters are very passionate, loud, volatile, and interesting. I think the dynamic of the Dragon world is intriguing. Ruled by royalty but still seeming to have rather a lot of freedom to do as they wish. I was also intrigued by the d...more

This was an anthology by Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden and Noelle Mack.

In Shelly's story of Dragons Ailean and Shalin, a lecherous dragon meets his match in the beautiful, studious Shalin. This is a prequel of sorts to GA Aiken's Dragon Kin stories which are one of my favs. The humor in these books are wonderful and the stories are very well told.

In Cynthia's story of Serena and Luis, a witch summons up Luis, who is a cazador demon...the most powerful type. A Warlock is binding Serena's coven...more

Can't Get Enough - Shelly Laurenston (Dragon Kin 0.5)4 stars

I really enjoyed the Novella by Shelly Laurenston (4 stars)which tells the story of Ailean the Wicked and how he falls for and gets Shalin the Innocent (the parent's of Bercelak) and reveals why Bercelak (and his siblings) where raised the way they were!

I am in love with the writing style of Laurenston. She is able to create a fabulous world of dragons that makes sense. The dialouge is always sharp and funny without pulling away from th...more

Read for "Can't Get Enough" by Shelly Laurenston aka G.A. Aiken.

I was thoroughly confused at first as it had been a few weeks since I was last in the Dragon Kin world, and frankly all the names get very confusing.
For a minute I thought I was reading Éibhear's story, due to the blue hair. Took me a little while to remember that his grandfather also had blue hair.

I love that we see why Bercelak is was so obsessed with his children being prepared for anything and everything.

Also I loved that we got...more

I only read Can't Get Enough by Laurenston (Aiken). Absolutely love the Caldwaladrs, they are so dysfunctional yet so loyal to each other. Until I read the Dragon Kin series by Aiken, I never read or liked anything that was set in medieval times. These dragons are so funny. These stories have it all. Action, romance, sex, funny, violence, and loving all in one. This short story is about Ailean Cadwaladr & Shalin. Future queen Adienna sold Shalin to the Lightning dragons yet Ailean refused to...more

I really loved the first two stories. I found Shelly Laureston's alter ego in another short story collection. Right away I went to amazon an started ordering her first couple of books. Her stories are funny and have just the right amount of sexy to balance them out leaving the reader running to the store for the next book. Cynthia Eden short story had me emotionaly envolbed with her serena and luis. The two are complete opposite serena is a good witch scared for her life grasping at her last hop...more

I have a tendency to really like anthologies! Especially when they have at least one story that is from an author that I enjoy reading or carries a short story from a series I like. This anthology covers both of those bases in spades!

Here are my ratings per story:
Can't Get Enough (Dragon Kin #1 chronological reading order) by Shelly Laurenston (G A Aiken) 5 stars
Spellbound by Cynthia Eden 3.5 stars
Turn Me On by Noëlle Mack 3.5 stars

I have read, Can't Get Enough 3 times to refresh my memory as ne...more

Bought it to only read Aikens. So fun to go back to the first couple...the birth of Bercelek is precious! Why oh why can't Aiken write her stories faster. No writer makes me laugh more or more consistently...and then she throws in the sex!
