Book Description

5 Nov 2013 Dragon Kin
It's not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear - a lot - or else salute. It's true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother's soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way, she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer.Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe - a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fill her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn't get any stranger. She's wrong...

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 26 Nov 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book out of desparation of nothing else to read until the end of November. Expecting not to like it much I was pleasantly surprised when I did. The interplay between the two main characters was good, and so funny in places I actually chuckled to myself a couple of times. The female lead was good, I liked her, which is usually my pet hate with books. So much goes into the male characters, and the female characters are always the same, not so here! I liked that Annwyn had a personality all of her own, that she wasn't perfect, but she seemed more unique than most heroines to me. So all in all a really good read, and I shall definitely be getting the next one, out in Jan 09 :-) The sex in the book was also spicy without being over done, so well done G A Aiken.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dragon Kin" series book 1 26 Oct 2008
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Dragon Actually" was initially released by Shelly Laurenston (aka G A Aiken) as an e-book entitled "To Challenge a Dragon", a book I tried unsuccessfully to get hold of after reading the absolutely fabulous paperback sequel "The Distressing Damsel" several years ago. Book 2 is also scheduled for re-release under a new title "About a Dragon" in Nov 08, although I note it will not be available from Amazon UK until Jan 09.

Annwyl the Bloody (a name she hates but one does end up covered in blood when beheading the enemy in battle) is out numbered and near death when she is rescued by a black dragon; Fearghus the Destroyer. Rather than toast her for breakfast, instead Fearghus displays a healthy interest in this female warrior who battles her tyrannical brother for his throne. Assuming a human form, Fearghus begins to train the already skilled Annwyl in the hopes she learns to control her formidable anger; however it matters not whether in his dragon or human form, Fearghus falls more deeply in love with his feisty human every day.

Annwyl in turn begins to feel disloyal to her wonderful black dragon when she becomes intimate with the Knight who trains her; unaware they are the same person. The Knight may tempt her body yet her heart belongs to Fearghus, however she is unable to admit her feelings. Fearghus in turn begins to worry exactly how angry Annwyl will be when he reveals the truth to her, yet he privately admits he loves the smell of her in a berserker rage. Who would guess that a mighty dragon known as the Destroyer would end up putty in the hands of a human female?

GAA has (re)written the kind of hot fantasy romance I absolutely adore.

5.0 out of 5 stars great new series 4 Jan 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this in Borders Express and was blown away. Funny characters, good storyline - it also includes the prequel story about Rhiannon the Dragon Queen. The second in the series is equally good and full length (covers the story of the second Dragon brother but also links to this first - so best to read in order but can be read out of synch - also found in Borders- come on Amazon - why can't you sort out your US imports?

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and a great read 31 Jan 2009
By Anatis
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had never read anything by C.A. Aiken, and promised myself to try some new authors. So, seeing this title, I thought okay... why not.
I don't regret it for a second.
The book is great, the characters memorable and well written. Funny, too. The heroine is tough, without being overdone. *no pun intended*
The hero is a little bemused, not surprising, that this little creature stands up to the dragon.
I've just ordered the second one, About a Dragon, because I enjoyed the first one.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a start... 17 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must start my review by saying is that I love paranormal romances(fairy tales for grown-ups), I love quirky, strong heroines who fight back, and I love Dragons. So this book was absolutely made for me!

OK, so there are some editing mishaps, and it's not the best written book ever, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. In this two part story we are introduced to Annwyl & Fearghus, and then a prequel about Fearghus's parents (Rhiannon & Bercelak). It also sets the opening for the world of the Dragon Kin. All I can say is that is does get better & better. [Spoiler Alert]

You don't have to read this story to get a good grounding of the Dragon Kin stories that are to follow, but it does a lovely job of "setting the scene". G A Aiken has created a world full of crazy humans and dragons- who just happen to like transforming into humans. The stories are all about the irritating things your family drive you to. It's also about how life gets in the way of other plans. The surreal behaviour of the heroes & heroines is extreme, but it's also very funny. I laughed, cringed and had to stop reading when on crowded trains & aeroplanes!

Please don't read this story if your looking for "great literature". Do read it to find out about the people of an amazing new world and what makes them tick. I found them crazy, funny and I wanted to know what happened next: that's a sign of a good book for me.

G. A. Aiken / Shelly Laurenston is one of my must read authors right now. I can grantee that at some point in her writing I will be curled up with laughter, or cringing with the characters as something goes horribly wrong. After re-reading this on my Kindle I still found myself giggling at the dialogue. A really good read, that does not take itself too seriously. More please!
