Briec the Mighty’s ego knows no bounds. He does whatever he wants , whenever he wants and no one can tell him otherwise. However, Nolwenn witch Talaith is the only one who can put the arrogant dragon in his place.

When she is roused from her sleep and taken to be burned by an angry town determined to kill her for being a witch, Talaith gets a little pissed off. Especially when one of the angry members is her useless husband. But before Talaith gets burned to a crisp, a dragon saves her and suddenly, she finds herself the property of Mr. Briec the Mighty to use and abuse as he pleases. However, Talaith has more fight in her. It becomes a constant battle between Talaith and Briec as they fight for domination. Neither one is willing to bend for the other and all the while, it’s a bunch of laughs and fun (For the reader. Maybe not so much for them)

I have to say how much I adored Talaith and her tenacity. She was a riot, willing to do anything she put her mind to. Just when Briec shows signs of falling hard, Talaith takes off to find something very dear to heart, leaving Briec feeling not to mighty anymore.
This is one of my favourite parts:

He sighed. A big, long sigh. “She left me, sister.”
“The female you had here? Why? Was she unhappy?”
“I didn’t think so. But I guess she was.” Briec sat up a bit, his claw to his chest. “What is this unbearable feeling in my chest?" It’s driving me mad!
Fighting her smile, his sister reached over and ran her hand through his hair. “That, my sweet brother, is called heartbreak.”


Awww. Adorable, right? And then this happens...

He glanced down at his chest. “Will that be a physical deformity?”

LOVE BRIEC! LOVE TALAITH! And my favourite girl, Annwyl the Bloody makes a lot of appearances in this book.

Bottom line? You’re missing out big time if you don’t check out this series.

Did you read the last book? Gwenvael completely cracked me up in that book. He spent the whole story pissed off!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) The epilogue of About a Dragon had the Beast in it. She was fun. Looking forward to it!

You girls make me wanna read it!! Watch tomorrow morning I'll pick it up.

You do really need to do it! :P If only to see the reason Gwenvael was so pissed off. :)


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Yess, more goodness coming your way!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Damn! gotta read faster! i wanna know!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I think Annwyl will be one of my fave heroines. She rocked in this book too. Hard to top her.


 ~V~ Read FASTER!?..dang girl..i'm impressed with how quick you're ALREADY reading! ;) LOL!

Well..just wait 'till you get a load of her in Gwenvael's book!!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) You're telling me she gets BETTER?

I just looked up the other books in the series to see who has a book out already. Do you know how long she wants this series to go or is it coming to an end?

Yep..she KICKS BUTT in that one...and that book also has some VERY emotional parts in it!! :(..i thought!

and as far as the series...i don't believe there is an end in sight...she hasn't said so anyways.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Oh man. Im excited. She kicks ass in ALL THE BOOKS.

oh good. I wish Morfyd and Brastias got a book. But Im not sure she'll do one.

Nope, they won't be getting their own book..their story pretty much "plays out" throughout all the books. :)


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I'm kind of sad about that, but I do really love that she has a side romance in addition to the main one. There's really never a dull moment.

Yep..i agree...i was bummed out about that too, but she did do a pretty good job with their romance as a side story so that we wouldn't feel too cheated. :)


Catherine I agree with V, even though I wanted them to have their own book, the author does a great job of showing them as a secondary romance in each book.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I looove them!!!

I'm looking forward to Keita's book as well. She's like the girl version of Gwenvael, so it should be interesting....wait, who is in the next book?


Catherine Keita's was my was my least favorite book. I didn't warm up to her very much. She was just too much for me.

Next up is Gwenvael!

yes haha! I never thought scales could be so sexy but i was mistaken! the only thing i find odd is there is no mention to time period. Its not focused on scenery like at all which is something different :P


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Awesome, I can't wait! I'll have to go back and get the anthos that have the short stories for this series so I can read those as well. I'm missing only those.
