I know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail’s length. A technique that’s worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who’ve come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile. Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless and, to my great annoyance, rather stupid!
Yet I’ll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he’ll learn my worth, my many skills, and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him to his knees. (from Goodreads)
This is a great author who also writes under the name Shelly Laurenston. Her books are funny, exciting and hot. This series is about a world with dragons who can take human form. There is a real difference in the mindset of humans who take animal form an creatures who can take a human form. Katie MacAlister shows this as well in her Aisling Grey series.
The only problem I had with this book is I could not remember the back story very well from the previous titles. I would normally have gone back and re-read the series, but did not take the time. That was definitely a mistake. When her next book is released, I will definitely do so.
