Review: Dragon Actually
Dragon Actually is the first book in the Dragon Kin series by G A Aiken and a Zebra Paranormal Romance.
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...
Dragon Actually was a very entertaining read. :)
Annwyl the Bloody has had to fight for her life since coming to live with her father - because her brother hates her and wants her dead - a feeling she gladly returns. Annwyl wants nothing more than to kill her brother and has spent years fighting his troops in the hopes of getting close enough to her brother to accomplish her goal.
Fearghus lives alone in his lair and tolerates occasional visits from his family - but he is not a dragon to be messed with, he prefers his solitary existence. That is until the day the human woman falls at his feet. Not one to meddle in the affairs of humans - Fearghus is surprised at his feeling of protectiveness towards the woman.
I really enjoyed Dragon Actually. It is full of humor and sass, action and romance. Annwyl is one tough cookie and Fearghus is one hot dragon. :)
I give Dragon Actually 5 out of 5 stars and I have books 2 & 3 on the tbr shelf. :)
