Format: Paperback
Beatrice Small weaves a new tale conjured from the mists of Avalon. We are introduced to the descendants of Pendragon, three daughters from the Camelot line.
Averil The Eldest daughter is a great beauty, but bears the shame of being illegitimate. Her great beauty ensures she will make a good marriage and she works hard to make the best match she can. But fate steps in, spinning her life onto a path she did not foresee. Thinking to better his lot in life, a poor bailiff Rhys Fitzhugh, decides to abduct and heiress thinking they will be forced to wed. He kidnaps Averil not realising she is not the legal heir. Once comes to face the fact he goofed, he must set about to win a very angry Averil's heart. It's great fun and well penned 'taming of the shrew' Camelot style.
The second tale concerns Maia - the legitimate heiress. Maia loves Emrys Lynn, the descendant of Lancelot and the Lady of the Lake. There are tales about Emrys' previous wives and their deaths and rumours Emrys is an immortal, but Maia is convinced love will solve all.
The last tale about the youngest daughter, Junia. She loves her freedom and roams the countryside. She meets Richard De Bohun, falls in love with him and continues to meet him on the sly, because he is the son of her father's powerful enemy. Little knows Junia, that she is risking her whole family by her secret love.
It's a heady mix of myth, sensuality and the love of three very strong women. Dead on target! An excellent addition to Grail fiction.

HASH(0x8f2c87b0) out of 5 stars Not bad for a romance novel. 8 Nov. 2004
By S. E. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I purchased this book, I had no idea who Beatrice Small was, or what type of book she normally writes. I grabbed it because of the story summary on the cover. The book tells the tale of 3 young women who all descend directly from the bloodline of King Arthur. The girls Averil, Maia, and Junia each have different mothers and the same father. Each is described as unique in appearance and as each of them prepare to marry they face their own unique circumstances. Averil is kidnapped by a young man looking to find a wife with a land dowery; Maia (and here the King Arthur bit came more into play) falls in love with a faceless man in her dreams - refusing all others and chosing to wait for the day he rides through the gates; and Junia who falls in love with a man from a family feuding with the Pendragons for over a century. Each story line is interesting and the book reads fast and keeps your attention. However, despite the lean toward historical fiction - and in the case of Maia, the definate sci-fi tilt to the story, this is definately a romance novel. I must admit that I found the ending a bit sugar coated and some of the love scenes and wording to be more "lonely housewife" than I would have preferred. There is one rape scene that I could have lived without and I was not thrilled that the woman in question continued to "love" the rapist - I think there is no place for any such suggestion in any type of literature, but that's a personal belief - you decide for yourself. If you want a tale about King Arthur - this is NOT it. If you want a decent, enjoyable read - it's not a bad choice. Knowing now that Ms. Small writes romance novels (despite any efforts at an historical twist) I would assume this is the only book of her's I shall read...but it wasn't a bad choice, just a bit predictable perhaps.

HASH(0x8f2c87f8) out of 5 stars My First 12 July 2004
By Sheila - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was my first Bertrice Small book and I thought it was a very good book. My favorite character was Averil, her story was the best. I found Maia to be a bit whiny, but her hero Emrys was so cool! At first I was very disgusted with the rape of Junia, but when you think about it, it's very historically acurate. Most of the women in that time period had to endure rape, especially from their own husbands! And the fact that these women rise above their curcumstances and remain brave makes them heros in my heart.

HASH(0x8f2cd048) out of 5 stars Where's the beef? 2 Feb. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"The Dragon Lord's Daughters" is Bertrice Small's return to the short-stories-within-a-story format she used in "Vixens". Unfortunately, it doesn't work any better here than it did there. "Daughters" tells the stories of the three daughters of King Arthur's descendant Merin Pendragon: Averil, the beautiful and haughty eldest; Maia, the middle and only legitimate daughter; and Junia, the impetuous youngest girl. (April, May, and June; how --- ahem --- clever.) Each girl hopes for a fine and noble husband, but that's not always what they end up with.
The problem with this book, as with "Vixens", is that the individual stories are so short that they don't allow for proper character or plot development. To use "Averil" as an example, Averil is "bride-napped" by the illegitimate Rhys FitzHugh on the suggestion of his dying father. In just a few pages the two are married in front of the King of Wales and haughty Averil seems to have resigned herself to her fate. According to the back-cover blurb, Rhys must now win his prickly bride's "love, loyalty, and trust". Of course that's not especially difficult in the Bertrice Small universe --- all it takes is two steamy sex scenes and Averil is madly in love with her husband, not to mention pregnant. (Guys in the real world must be wishing it could be that easy.) The sketchy "obstacle" (the elderly nursemaid Rhawn) is quickly dealt with, the legitimate half-sister dies of a remarkably fast-moving ague, and lo and behold the illegitimate Rhys becomes both master of the estate and a father within a few paragraphs of each other. All this is very quickly and sparsely sketched out by Small; the only things that really get any detail are the frequent sex scenes. I realize that this is Small's specialty, but I still would have liked to see the characters and plots fleshed out more. As it stands, the heroines are cliched ciphers with none of the spirit or fire of, say, Skye O'Malley or Janet Leslie/Cyra ("The Kadin" --- one of my all-time favorites).
I hate to say it but Small's work is, like many others before her, becoming formulaic --- I guess when you've done this for so long you hit a rut eventually. If "Skye O'Malley" and "The Kadin" were rich, satisfying meals,"The Dragon Lord's Daughters" is spun sugar; sweet, light, and enjoyable, but it leaves you hungry.
HASH(0x8f2cd0f0) out of 5 stars The dragon lord's daughters fight their own dragons 9 Mar. 2016
By drcmb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains three intertwined stories of three sisters and their searches for the perfect partner in life. The characters are well-developed, the historical background enrichens the stories and all are not light-hearted. There is a defilement, and brutal, that can happen in any era. There is retribution relevant to the time period. The youngest daughter's ability to respond and grow from the experience, some based on her very likeable and understanding partner who had is own pain in life, is consistent with working through tragedy in the present day.
