Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won’t have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.
Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he’s helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons–but he’d be lying. It’s not his fault, though! He didn’t tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he’s ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs. . .
Another rip-roaring, dragon-kin novel from G.A, Aiken. I about died laughing on parts of this book. It is a wonder that my family didn’t have to peel me off the floor, because every time I laughed I was getting lower and lower in my chair until I about fell out of it. G.A. Aiken (a.k.a Shelly Laurenston) is a master at writing wit, humor and sarcasm in her books. She knows how to get the most out of a punch line or is it a punch to the head or snout. The story line and characters are great and very memorable. Addolgar overlooks Braith until he sees her fights the dragons let behind to kill him. Now he cannot stop thinking about her. I give this book 5/5 stars.
Griffin Cadogan is surprised when Avani Monroe, the sworn enemy of his dragon family, walks into his gym. With his mating phase approaching, the dragon shifter wonders why she risks coming into enemy territory. Yet the dark-eyed temptress shocks him even more with an outrageous demand: She wants him to help her have a baby.
After her mother’s dragon line was annihilated by the Knights, Avani vows to continue her unique dragon breed-and the registries indicate that Griffin is the best candidate. Determined to mate, Avani plans to use her seductive beauty and powerful scent to entice Griffin. The big, strong Welsh man will make for a fitting partner . . . if he doesn’t kill her first.
When they spar over the terms of her proposal, Griffin and Avani can’t deny the intense, primal attraction they feel for each other. But as they become closer to creating a child, the lovers can hear danger encircle them as loud as the clapping of wings. The dragon slayers are coming . . .and they’re gunning for Griffin, Avani, and the entire dragon race.

I was given this book by Netgalley.com to read for an honest review.
This is the first time I have read this author, Lolita Lopez. The story line and characters were well-developed and well paced. The characters of Griffin and Avani were very likeable and strong characters. The story hooked me from the first page, and before I knew it the story was done. I wish the story was longer, I wanted more. The men in the story were absolutely yummy. I cannot wait until the next book in the series. I recommend this book to everyone. I give this book a 5/ 5 stars.
