Highly recommended! 12 Dec. 2001
By Huntress Reviews - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Set in the year 1214 on English soil, near the border. Dominic Dragon of Pendragon was one of King John's most trusted knights. Even so, the Dragon Lord was surprised when the king gave him Ayrdale. King John had executed the Baron of Ayrdale for treason. Dominic was to immediately take up residence and marry either the widow or the daughter of the deceased Lord.
Lady Rose was all thorns on the outside! Trained as a warrior she guarded her mother, twin sister, and people until such time as her father returned. Instead of her father, the Dragon Lord arrived. Knowing the knight would want a meek wife and would chose her twin, Starla, to wed, Rose tricked him into believing the warrior sister was named Starla. Right after the wedding, Starla and their mother left for the convent. Newly married, Rose stayed home (now named Dragonwyck) to deal with Dominic.
Except when in bed, the two clashed! Things worsen when her uncle, Murdoc MacTavish, arrived with his men to claim the castle. Rose's marriage would not deter him. He and his step-son, Gunn, would do anything necessary to claim Dragonwyck as his own!
***** NO ONE WRITES LIKE CONNIE MASON! This one is non-stop adventure and lots of strife to keep you reading! It gets no better than this one, Readers! Highly recommended reading! *****

Are we all reading the same book 11 Feb. 2006
By Lady Raven RAVE! - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you want to already disagree because i gave this book a high rating go ahead and don't even bother reading the rest of the review, I often times wonder if everyone is reading the same book or books especially when everyone complains and say they are tired of reading the same formula and plot they always read about. 88% of these authors use the same formula and plot mostly in these historical romace novels/books such as (pirates, twin switch, captive brides and other plots and formula) while 90% of the heroes in a historical romance novel are always jerks that redeem themself. I always say it might be the same formula and plot and i never get tired of them because to me its how a author puts her twist on it that makes it a good novel which you do have some bad books, but until someone comes up with new formulas and plots i have no problem with the typical formulas and plots, most of the time I think some people try to downplay a book because everyone likes it but thats just my opinion..

I thought it was a good book, YES Dragon was a jerk in the beginning but i think he redeem himself to Rose throughout the rest of the book and thought he should have been more stern with Veronica, Rose she was a hellion and i mean it in a good way she has guts and that fire in her belly that keeps her going and great love scenes and chemistry between Rose and Dragon.. of course has everyone knows its the typical twin switch, I hate you but now I love you kind of book but I thought Connie Mason did a good job on this book, it wasn't a WOW kind of book for me but i thought it was still good enough to give 4 stars..

If you like Connie Mason you'll love this book and know what to expect from her writting style and for the first timers they always try to leave a bad review when reading a Connie Mason novel for the first time no matter how good it is try reading a second one to see how you feel about the author and her writing style and I'm sure you have a favourite author who has written a couple of bad books themself....

My opinion is so strong for this book because its like i always say a bad reivew can really downplay a good book and a good review can really up play a bad book, because of some of the bad reviews for this book I almost didn't read it but i'm glad i change my mind

Good medieval romance 9 Nov. 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
King John orders his knight Dominic Dragon to wed either the widow of a treasonous but now dead baron or their daughter. Though he finds the Ayrdale estate quite enticing, Dominic prefers to remain single, but knows he has no options. However, Dominic is surprised to learn that twin daughters exist. One rips his skin for breathing while the other trembles in fear whenever he exhales. Dominic rejects the mother and the termagant as he figures the meek one would be more malleable and cause the least trouble.

However, Rose tricks Dominic into marrying her, the thorny twin because she would do anything for her sibling Starla, who prefers life in a nunnery. Besides wedding the wild one, Dominic has other troubles to contend with would destroy a lesser person with expectations of unreasonable levels of loyalty by King John and problems with his mistress and her uncle, but the worse problem for THE DRAGON LORD is he now loves his tricky spouse.

THE DRAGON LORD is an exciting yet humorous medieval romance. The story line is four points taut due to external machinations and six points amusement as Rose always seems to best Dominic who changes from frustration to winks at her actions. New York Times best-selling author Connie Mason shows why she is so highly regarded by fans and reviewers with this robust historical romance that freshens up the overused John scenario with the shrew taming the dragon.

Paint by number writing 16 Sept. 2004
By J. Mullally - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a competent story, no more. I don't know about other 'romance' readers, but I hate novels which start out with the hero swiving his lewd mistress. Even worse, he goes on to complain he hasn't had a wench for a whole week, and says to the heroine on their wedding night,"If I had had known virgins were like this I would have had one long ago." Talk about crass. He is like a barbarian. Rose is feisty and the only thing that redeems the book. Veronica the mistress is a pain, and Dominic too stupid in his dealings with her. But because he does not care about anyone'ss feelings but his own, he ignores the strife even though he wounds Rose badly in the process. The whole kidnap and rose trapped in her uncles castle was slapstick and silly. The endless background wittering about bad old King John and the Magna Carta was way too dull. When they couple finaly say they are in love with each other, well, most of us could not have cared less. Apart from some varied positions and word you would not use in front of your granny, this book was not in the least sexy. Where is the sensual detail, the smell, taste, feel of falling in love, not just putting up with each other because of proximity?

Good but rushed... 5 Feb. 2002
By LadyT - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a pretty good book and I rate it 3.5 stars. However I must admit, the plot was one that I had read before in another book -- a father (and landowner) is killed and a king sends his champion out to wed one of the surviving daughters to make sure that his kingdom holds onto the lands. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the story, which contained some twists and turns that made it differ slightly from the other book, and added interest. Suffice it to say, I enjoyed the plot. I also enjoyed the characters. The Dragon Lord was just as reluctant to marry as was the sister he wound up with and neither were shy about letting the other know this. Naturally, this set up the tension that would follow as the two found themselves forced together in matrimony. And if that weren't bad enough, one of Dragon's spurned lovers wasn't at all happy with the union and wasn't shy about letting him and his new bride know.
The dialog was also refreshing. Rose was particularly blunt and asked questions that you would hope she'd ask rather than sit back and wonder what Dragon's thoughts were. I really appreciated that touch. And because Rose was forever getting herself into one scrape after another, there was a decent bit of action in the story as well, with the Dragon running to her rescue.
If you like sensual books, this one almost hits the mark. This is where the book fell short in my ratings. The romance and the intimate scenes seemed a little rushed, as did parts of the story. I got the feeling that the author had a lot to say but tried to compress the story in as few words as possible. While it's okay to skimp in some areas, it's not a good idea to skimp on the romantic build-ups. While the romance and the romantic scenes were enoyable, they could have been much moreso with just a few more pages added to each scene.
Despite this minor flaw, the events in the book made for a very enjoyable story. There was always something going on and Rose and Dragon were two very likeable characters. I very much enjoyed this book and I will definitely read another book by this author.
