Quick & Dirty: Dragon King has it all from a steamy romance, wonderful writing, action scenes to an amazing cast of characters.
Opening Sentence: Grace was screwed.
Dragon King is an absolutely sexy read. The characters are entertaining and the writing sucked me in to the story. I really felt like I was in the highlands of Scotland sitting on the side of the mountain with Grace. I really liked this setting and the dragon’s story. I just want to stop e ...more

I love Donna Grant's dragons! Dragon King is a novella in Donna Grant's Dark Kings series and part of the 1001 Dark Nights Series. I love the 1001 Dark Nights series because it's a great way to discover some authors and give you a sample of their series. I'm a fan of Donna Grant's Dark King series and ...more
"You may no' believe it, lass, but you're safe with me."
Grace scratched her nose. "With a dragon?"
"You were a dragon," she said. "A huge dragon with wings and fire and everything."
He gave a nod. "I ken exactly what I am, lass."

Their relationship is quick and filled with trials they have to work through. I liked both Grace and Arian. I hope we see more of them in the future.
"Dragon King" is a short-novel by Donna Grant, from 1,001 Dark Knights, a series with the stories of several authors and different genres which "reinterpret" Sheherazade in "One thousand and one nights" with new novels.
I love reading them, because it seems to be in a little fairy tale dimension, although adult fairy tales in this case.
"Dragon King" also is part of the paranormal romance series "Dark Kings" (# 6.25).
The story of Arian and Grace has for me all the charm of Dark Kings series and it ...more
Grace Clark is a writer looking for a little peace and quiet to meet her next deadline on her new book. Taking a trip to Scotland might just be what she needs to get those creative juices flowing. So when she finds a writing cave – and I literally do mean a cave where she can write in – she soon discovers that the majestic atmosphere is enough to have her fingers flying on her laptop.
Grace is a really sweet character. With her fear of storms, it’s quite funny that she gets paired with a man
Grace Clark is way beyond her deadline to finish her book and she hasn’t even begun writing it. Travelling all the way to Scotland is supposed to break her writer’s block. Surrounded by the quietness and the breathtaking view f the Scottish mountains, Grace begin to write until a sto ...more
I don't know what it is with the novellas featured in the 1001 Dark Nights series. They all are just so good. I think that I have been a fan of every author that this series featured. And if there were authors that I wasn't a fan of, the series novella definitely made me one.

Wow! I’m such a dummy. I pre-ordered this in March and just read it tonight, and enjoyed every second of it. Loved Arian and Grace. It was nice seeing Con and Warrick again. I also thought it was pretty cool how Arian controlled the weather, and kept it raining so she couldn’t leave his cave.
I absolutely love all these little novellas of Ms. Grants, and I’ve read every one of them. As far as I’m concerned she could write nothing but these and I’d be happy as a pig ...more
The romance was insta-love! Ugh. Love at first sight stuff it's just cheesy. Nevertheless, I closed my mind's eyes on that matter because my desire to read dragon shifter needs to be fulfilled - that is just how much I love dragons ...more
Pleasant read. Not riveting or especially hot. Had some action, although the 'Dark' fae seemed rather ineffectual.

Grace Clark is desperate to finish writing her book that is way overdue. If she can’t complete it in the next three weeks then the publisher will cancel her contract. She’s having a major case of writer’s block and doesn’t know what to do to get her creative juices flowing. So, she has come to Scotland, where her ...more
Dragon King is book 6.5 in the Dark Kings series and a novella with 1001 Dark Night *Love those ladies btw*
Grace is a writer, one who has traveled to Scotland to try and brake through the wall that is her writers block. The second book in her series is giving her a hard time and she has turned to the country side of Scotland to kick start her muse. Little does she know she has trespassed on Draegan land, and is for more "inspiration" than she signed up for.
Arian is a recently wo ...more
I love the Highlander tales and Donna Grant's storytelling, however...Dragon King is as predictable as they come. The characters of Arian and Grace are likable enough, however, I didn't feel any chemistry between the two to move this fast-paced romance along. Con, the King of Kings, in this story, doesn't live up to the title. Con comes across stoic instead of intimidating.
The battle with the Dark Fae is uneventful and not well depicted and over before it really starts. This novella is ...more

Another fantastic novella set in the Dragon Kings World.
I absolutely loved the chemistry between Arian and Grace.
Grace is a take no crap female who doesn't cower even to Con.
I have enjoyed every book thus far I have read and will read even more.

Other books in the series
Con and the others were waiting for him to join in the war. Every King had been woken to take part. After all the wars they had been involved in, Arian wasn’t happy to be woken to join another.
Because of Ulrik. The banished and disgraced Dragon King hadn’t just made a nuisance of himself, but he somehow managed to get his magic returned.
Which meant the Kings needed to put extra magic into keeping the four silver dragons sleeping undisturbed deep within the mountain. They were Ulrik’s dragons, and he would want to wake them soon.
But it wasn’t just Ulrik that was causing mischief. The Dark Fae were as well. It infuriated Arian that they were once more fighting the Dark. Hadn’t the Fae Wars killed enough Fae and dragons?
Then again, as a Dragon King as old as time itself, they were targets for others who wanted to defeat them.
For Ulrik, he just wanted revenge. Arian hated him for it, but he could understand. Mostly because Arian had briefly joined Ulrik in his quest to rid the realm of humans.
Thoughts of Ulrik were pushed aside as Arian found himself thinking about why he had taken to his mountain. When he came here six hundred years earlier, it was to remain there for many thousands of years.
The Dragon Kings sought their mountains for many reasons. Some were just tired of dealing with mortals, but others had something they wished to forget for a while. Arian was one of the latter.
There were many things he did in his past when the King of Kings, Constantine, asked. Not all of them Arian was proud of. The one that sent him to his mountain still preyed upon him.
He didn’t remember her name, but he remembered her tears. Because of the spell to prevent any of the Dragon Kings from falling in love with mortals, Arian had easily walked away from the female.
Six centuries later, he could still hear her begging him to stay with her, still see the tears coursing down her face. Though he hadn’t felt anything, it bothered him that he had so easily walked away. Because Con had demanded it.
Loyalty—above all else.
The Dragon Kings were his family, and Dreagan his home. There was never any question if he were needed that Arian would do whatever it took to help his brethren in any capacity asked of him.”
Then he had kissed her.
And what a kiss!
It was a kiss like none other. There was fire and a hunger that was both savage as well as tender.
Then the fire had come. The kiss had charred her, searing her from the inside out. Each touch of his tongue, each time those lips of his moved over here, had been the most incredible feeling in the world.”
