Book Description

Book 2 in the award-winning Dragon Kin series!

Talaith's life has never been easy. A goddess has forced her into servitude. Her husband despises her. And all those in her tiny village fear her. But just when she doesn't think her life can get any worse, she's pulled from her bed one morning to be burned at the stake for being a witch. What she never counted on was a terrifying silver dragon deciding to rescue her.

Briec the Mighty didn't really know what to do with a human female. Especially this one. Chatty and a bit of a complainer, he doesn't understand why she can't simply admit to herself that she wants him. Who wouldn't? He was Briec the Mighty after all. Females fought to spend the night in his arms. But this one tiny woman with her many secrets and her annoying habit of referring to him as "arrogant" has turned his simple dragon life upside down.

This book has been previously published as The Distressing Damsel by Shelly Laurenston and is available under its new title, in print, from Kensington Books.

Warning: This story contains explicit monogamous sex and graphic violence!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dragon Kin" series book 2 10 Jan. 2009
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"About a Dragon" was previously released by this author writing as Shelly Laurenston in 2006 under the title "The Distressing Damsel" and maintains the exceptionally high standards she achieved with book 1 "Dragon Actually".

Talaith isn't like the other people in her village; feared by many and hated by others, all remain unaware of her strange past. As a long lived Nolwenn witch, Talaith was expected to bear her only child in her 300th year or so; however she fell in love at sixteen and against her mother's wishes, bore her lover a daughter. Barely birthed, Talaith's baby was torn from her by the priestesses of Arzhela, the goddess of Light, Love and Fertility and held as hostage to assure Talaith's servitude. Trained as a deadly assassin, for sixteen years Talaith waits for the call of a Goddess she despises; knowing Arzhela will only release her daughter if she obeys the Goddess' commands.

Things fail to go the Goddess' way when the villagers turn on Talaith and attempt to hang her for witchcraft. Expecting Arzhela to come to her aid, Talaith is instead rescued by a silver dragon, Briec the Mighty, who in his human shape decided Talaith would provide some amusement for a while despite her being the first human woman he will take as a lover. Her highly vocalised objections to his plan do not deter him in the slightest; especially after realising the thrill of a good argument just happens to excite his little human. Finding himself somewhat spellbound by Talaith, Briec the Mighty fails to understand he is falling in love; however he is willing to admit it may well be at least a few hundred years or so before he finally grows bored with Talaith and throws her out his den.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Kin book 2 2 May 2015
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Talaith is having a pretty rough day, she was dragged from her bed in the middle of the night by a mob of angry villagers and now she's about to burn on a pyre because they think she's a witch. As if that wasn't bad enough the person who comes to her rescue isn't her husband (he was too busy egging on the crowd) but a huge dragon who she is pretty sure intends to eat her for a snack later. Talaith isn't about to go down without a fight though and Briec may have caught more than he bargained for. Breic isn't quite sure why he felt the urge to rescue the human woman, not to make a meal of that's for sure, but he finds her strangely fascinating. Now he's brought her back to his cave he isn't quite sure what to do with her but he quickly realises that he doesn't want to let her go.

This series is so much fun to read, sometimes you just want some brain candy, a story that is pure entertainment, one that will make you laugh out loud and have you giggling to yourself the whole way through and that's exactly what the Dragon Kin series is for me. G.A. Aiken's dragons are completely over the top cavemen and the women who tame them are all fierce, opinionated warriors who are more than capable of standing their ground. Briec is the most arrogant dragon we've met so far (and that's saying something!) but Talaith isn't impressed, she refuses to bow down before any man or dragon and she gives as good as she gets. The pair of them spark off each other constantly and both love nothing more than a good argument, apart from perhaps the make up sex that comes afterwards. They make a great couple but Talaith has a secret mission that she must complete and nothing, not even her love for an arrogant dragon, will sway her from her task.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steamy and jovial sequel 7 Sept. 2011
By Dobsew
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
About a Dragon is a brilliant second book that continues the Dragon Kin story in the same style as the first book.

Although this book is mainly about the story of Briec,Talaith and how their romance develops, I love the way each family member of the Dragons and their love interests are entwined in the story. There are many threads within the book that you can see will develop as the Dragon Kin story unfolds. All the characters are brilliantly written and each have their quirks which makes the telling of the story funny and you just want to keep reading to find out more.

I love the fact that this series makes me laugh out loud. Plus, like Dragon Actually, this book has hot sexy scenes, fighting scenes and endearing scenes. It is just great and I am always happy to dive into the world of the Dark Plains and re-read this series over and over again.

I enjoyed Talaith and Briec's story. She was sharp tongued and witty and handled The arrogant Briec well. Wish Morfyd could get her chance with Brastias.
