Fabulous but short!
on 19 November 2013
I adore Thea Harrison's Elder Races series so was so overjoyed to have the opportunity to read and review this book. This is book 6.5 in the series and in many ways goes back to the very beginning when we first met Dragos Cuelebre and his mate Pia. Their relationship has been a stormy one full of uncertainty and danger but in this novella they get to just escape from duty and relax on a brief holiday.
Well I would truly like to say that the couple together with their young son Liam- affectionately known as Peanut- just relax but this is a Thea Harrison novel so of course there's much more to it then that!
Pia has been concerned that Dragos is overworked and knows it would be good for all of them to spend chilled time together. She hatches a plot that will see Dragos deciding to take them away to Bermuda where he can indulge in his favourite pastime - Treasure Hunting! Knowing her dragon well she realises that he will enjoy the challenge and just being away will be beneficial to them all.
Arriving to discover the delights that await them the couple quickly encounter what could be pirates and the hunt is on! What could have been a romantic getaway quickly becomes more of a danger to their family then anything they've encountered before.
I absolutely loved this quick peek into the lives of Dragos , Pia and the Peanut! The author has cleverly included brief snapshots from the point of view of young Liam and it's hilairious reading! What this reader enjoyed was seeing how the Peanut is changing. He has always been written as an intelligent individual but in this book we get to see his mischievous side. Even though this is a short read Ms. Harrison still manages to incorporate heat between the two lead characters and as usual the quality of writing is a dream to read.
So in conclusion I found this to be a fabulous if short read. If a fan of the series you will love it and it just wets the appetite for the next full length book in the series.
