Adorable! - 4 stars

Early excerpt – Peanut’s POV -> so cute!!

Mommy carried him into his room. He thought things were going quite well until she set him down on the thick, soft rug in the middle of the floor.

No, that wasn’t what he wanted. That was very much not what he wanted.

He was tired again, and his mouth hurt, and he was hungry all of the time. Hungry for what, he didn’t know. Hungry, hungry.

So he scowled and concentrated mightily on something that he wanted.

And the world shifted.

Dragos and his family - STORY 1

I believe the blurb summarizes everything beautifully:

The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong?

Dragos, Pia and little Peanut/Liam will go for holidays. Finally!
Pia completely innocently (yeah sure)has brought a book about a missing treasure from the local library and Dragos as a dragon thirsty for treasures has decided to go and investigate where it was lost, i.e. somewhere inside the Bermuda Triangle of course.

If you are a fan of Dragos, you really don't want to miss this novella! It is sooo will make you laugh and cry tear up. I just loved every minute of it.

Dragos "thinks" he comes up with an idea to go on a quick family vacation. (You just gotta love how Pia came up with that one.) So off they go to Bermuda.


I just love the relationship between Dragos and Pia. The way TH has written the scenes lets you feel how strong their emotions are for each other...and how hot!! I think Pia needs to

Dragos Takes a Holiday (Elder Races, #6.5) is a quick and short read that grabs you from the start......

This is vacation time for Dragos, Pia and little Liam aka Peanut (he's totally beyond adorable!!!)

I adore Thea Harrison's Elder Races series so was so overjoyed to have the opportunity to read and review this book. This is book 6.5 in the series and in many ways goes back to the very beginning when we first met Dragos Cuelebre and his mate Pia. Their relationship has been a stormy one full of uncertainty and danger but in this novella they get to just escape from duty and relax on a brief holiday.
Well I would truly like to say that the couple together with their young son Liam- affectionatel

This was a cute fun story... It kind of reminded me of the Incredibles & Jack Jack coming into his powers.

Pia finally gets Dragos to go on a vacation to Bermuda by placing treasure hunting books sporatically around their house & the lure for him is so great, he decides they need a vacation. During this time, baby Liam is coming into his powers & while it makes Pia proud & a nervous wreck, Dragos is extremely proud.

It was a cute quick read that expands on the story and points the

Awesome novella! Really entertaining. I love Peanut!!!!
I loved this little visit with Dragos, Pia, and Liam.

We get a lovely passion still burning between Dragos and his mate. I adore little ones and little shifters are always fun.

Married life, a vacation, and a treasure hunt. Good stuff.

The action at the end is a bit rushed but mainly a yummy bite of a book.

Favorite Quote: “You sure you weren’t too clever for him? Don’t get me wrong, I know he’s bright [...] but he is still just a man.”

Dragos Cuelebre desperately needs a vacation. After losing two of his staff to love, he has been working non stop. His mate decides to take matters into her own hands by leaving clues to a treasure hunt and soon he, Pia, and the peanut are heading towards the Bermuda Triangle for sun, sand, and treas

Loved this novella! Liam is adorable. Pia and Dragos are the definition of a sexy couple, combined with a great locale like Bermuda, and I knew I’d be in for a treat! Ms. Harrison didn’t steer me wrong!

Recommends it for: lovers of the paranormal romance

Dragos taking time off for a holiday?
Yep, and with anything Pia and Dragos do nothing is ever as easy as it sounds.
Add to the mix sunken treasure and Pirates, and Pia and Dragos have a vacation adventure I don't think they'll soon forget.

I really enjoyed reading this short, action pact story. It was wonderful spending time with Pia, Dragos and of course Liam fondly known as the 'The Peanut'.
Liam is growing much faster than other Wyr babies, and as some of his Wyr 'gifts' are starting to become
Initial Thoughts: So what would a dragon do on vacation? Hunt for sunken treasure off the coast of Bermuda, of course. A fun little novella featuring Dragos and Pia on a much needed vacation along with the little peanut.

The Review:
For fans of Thea Harrison's Elder Races series, this short little novella offers the reader a glimpse into Pia and Dragos' happily ever after. Yes, I'm a sucker for that sort of thing and these two are one of my favorite paranormal romance couples, so given the opport

When I think back on Dragos Takes a Holiday there a few words that immediate come to mind...


Adorable, Cute and Sweet all are on account of the Peanut. OMG, what an amazing character. I can't wait to see where Harrison goes with this incredible Dragon/Unicorn Hybrid. He stole the show and is such an endearing character you can't help but love him. It was also extremely sweet watching Pia and Dragos coming to terms with the extraordinary abilities this new born is exhi

2.5 stars - Spoilers

-This was kind of entertaining but also kind of blah. The plot was simple and rather predictable, there was nothing interesting or surprising that happened. The bad guys were evul and stupid, the good guys took them on and won, the romance was cheesy, and everything was exactly what was expected of a typical PNR novella.

-What's what: Pia and Dragos decide to take a break from their busy schedule, and go on holiday with Liam. Naturally, they do some treasure hunting, smex it u

As a novella it lack some deep baddies-of-turn development and background (view spoiler)

Cuteness aplenty from the Peanut.

Hot moments from the MCs.

LOVED THIS LIL GEM of a book!!! Oh who am I kidding, I love it anytime I can get me some Pia and Dragos and of course the talented and growing like a week (or a baby dragon) The Peanut! Funny as Dragos and Pia get away from NY on a long weekend, they think that they are just going to have a nice, relaxing weekend and do a little playing on the beach and some treasure hunting. Instead they end up tangling with bad guys and find out that their lil peanut is quite the escape artist. Can't wait for ...more

I love love love this series!! . Dragos and Pia's story just gets better and better and with the addition of Liam (aka Peanut) I can't wait to see what's in store for their future.

I really wanted to love this little slice of Dragos and Pia's HEA, but it was just too something and ended up being cute but more on the Okay side. The redeeming parts of the story were the bits with Peanut, boy is the little dragonlet going to be a handful as he grows.

In the "Nits Category" - I really didn't like the cover for this one. This guy is too creepy looking and wimpy to be Dragos...

4/5; 4 stars; A-

Pia, the Peanut, and could you go wrong? Every short story in this series is excellent. I don't know how a newbie to the series would perceive this book but as a big fan, I loved it. I look forward to seeing more of the Peanut in future books. *fingers crossed*
The only reason this book failed to get five stars was due to the typos I kept finding. I was surprised. These were easily avoided, such as straight out misspelled words, not grammatical errors.

Pia and Dragos are so sweet. Can't get enough of them.

This novella will be a real treat for Pia and Dragos fans. It’s a little slice of life, set just after Kinked, that gives us a look at the family dynamic since the birth of the Peanut.

Basically, the story follows Pia’s plan to take a family vacation. She entices Dragos with the idea of searching for sunken treasure –and before you know it, they are on holiday in Bermuda. There’s a little plot about the treasure and some nefarious fortune hunters thrown in there, but at its core, this is a story

What do you get when you mix a dragon and a unicorn? PEANUT!

Can we please talk about how adorable Peanut (aka Liam) is?

I will never get tired of reading about Dragos, Pia and Liam or just Dragos and Pia. I loved them from Dragon Bound and pray that they appear in some manner in the other Elder Race books. :sighs: I love Liam and I cannot wait til he grows into his scales. Now that is going to be quite the story.

If you love the Elder Race books then this one will not disappoint except that it
This too cute short in the day in the life format follows little Liam putting Pia and Dragos through their parenting paces while he proves he's daddy's boy as the family prepares to go on vacation.

I would say this read is definitely for fans of the series, it does not forward the overall arc but can be read in one sitting.

Thea Harrison is a genius. She takes PNR right to the edge of the shared border between sweetly sentimental AND grunting alpha-maleness, and holds it there with humour and genuinely likable characters.
What a wonderful little novella! Everything you expect with Dragos, Pia and the Peanut and in audio to boot! It was cute, it was fun and it was a perfect thing to listen to around the house today.

I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there.

“Liam’s bunny was one of those things Dragos didn’t understand. The stuffed toy was floppy, super soft and had big, dark eyes. Liam adored it, although Dragos wasn’t quite sure why. In real life, a bunny that size would barely make an appetizer.” 8 likes
“Thunderclouds gathered in his violet eyes. He growled. A thoroughly annoyed baby dragon was quite a sight. Her face compressed, and she bit both of her lips. She would not laugh.” 7 likes
