Book Description

Book Two of the Never Deal with Dragons series...
If Carol Jenski knows anything, it's fashion--and it's not in fashion to consort with dragons, even though they've coexisted with humans since World War III. Still, she would never have agreed to take part in a plot against them. Now a dragon lord has called for her head, her boyfriend is MIA and she's been abandoned in a foreign country.
Only reporter Daniel Wallent is on Carol's side...sort of. He offers his assistance if she helps him investigate his latest story. He'll need Carol's language  skills to infiltrate in the organization run by one of the most dangerous and secretive dragons in the world.
Escaping one sociopathic dragon's claws only to walk into another's is an insane risk--and so is falling for Daniel. Posing as his blushing--and very affectionate--new bride as cover soon leads to an all-too-real attraction. But fighting off dragons and her desire for Daniel may be more of a challenge than Carol can handle...

4.0 out of 5 stars It wasn’t easy rating this book. March 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars
~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

Lorenda Christensen’s post-apocalyptic world where humans live with dragons continue to intrigue me. Since reading the first installment, Never Deal With Dragons, I have waited to read more of this world.

First let me say that a world with sexy and dangerous dragons is just sexy to begin with. Seeing the hero, Trian from the last book was such a treat. I actually thought this installment is a continuation of his story; poor research on my part. Nevertheless, the hero in this book Daniel Wallent is a reporter covering dragon politics around the world. I didn’t like Daniel at first, and it took a while, but he ended up to be a good guy in disguise. I enjoyed getting to know him.

Just like Daniel, Carol was not easy to like…at first. Don’t get me wrong, she still kept me interested. She was put in a dangerous predicament, and all she thought of was her clothes and how she looked. I thought she was funny and fairly entertaining. There was also a hint of cheating in her relationships. Her ex-beau was a classified A.hole but still; it was too easy for her to forget him and move on. It wasn’t until after half way through that Carol’s situation starts sinking in and her persona started to change. She’s not my favorite heroine, but I did like her in the end.

It wasn’t easy rating this book. I was torn about a few things. I like the protagonist and their love story but getting to that point took a while. The dragon appearances and any kind of action were also delayed until passed 60-70%. Once the tempo picked up to exciting, I couldn’t put the book down. I’m hoping Ms. Christensen ups her game and move up to the good parts of the book sooner than later. Her world of the DRACIM has so much potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG - Fantastic Second Book! March 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I reviewed the first book in this series on another blog (under a different name). This woman won a Golden Heart in 2012 with Never Deal With Dragons and I thoroughly agree with the fact that she deserved the Golden Heart. There is fantastic world-building to be found in Ms. Christensen's books, an interesting explanation for how dragons came to be, and a completely transformed world in the fact of the birth of the dragon race.

This book takes place overlapping the very end of Never Deal. I read that book more than a year ago, so my memory of it is very fuzzy, though as it turned out not quite as fuzzy as I'd thought once I got into reading this book. The book starts out with Caroline in the hospital in the aftermath of an attack which (as it turned out) was one of the climactic final events in the first book, and she's being looked after by Richard Green (who, SPOILER ALERT!!!, was identified as the major villain from the first book). I was confused, given I remembered Richard being the villain, but as the book continued, his presence here made sense.

Daniel - I was thoroughly prepared to dislike him and was initially expecting him to be the villain (no, I rarely actually remember reading the blurbs before hand or I would have known he was the hero) after his first appearance in the hospital at Carol's bedside. In the end though, he turned out to be a great guy and really loyal to those he's working for. Carol definitely gets a good one when she lands him in the end.

This book starts out in Hungary, but the bulk of it is spent in India, which made for a nice break in the American settings of so many of the books I read. Ms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the Dragon World July 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I think this is a great world with dragons that live with humans. When I read the first book, I thought was more of a UF, because that is how the story read. More action that a standard PNR novel. I think this world is great.

In this story, there is a huge difference from most PNR novels. Both hero and heroine are human. Still makes for a great story as they deal with the dragon world.

We have the heroine who has been charged with treason against dragons. She is not able to return home. A journalist who believes she is not the one at fault has offered to help research who the real traitor is. He only wants the exclusive story. They decide to hide out in India and pretend to be a married couple while trying to research in a particular dragon's territory.

Although, this story seemed a little slow in the beginning, it really picks up. I think the overall story is better than the first book. You can see how the author's abilities have improved over book one. I can't wait to get to book three. I have no idea who the hero and heroine will be, but the world is so interesting, I just can't wait to get more of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed June 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read fiction to escape my daily stress. Watching this "side kick" of the first book of the series, Never Deal With Dragons, deal with much larger (dragons-hello) problems on a future world basis while wondering if the gorgeous guy she has fallen for is friend or foe, was like an idle afternoon bubble bath. Just what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing with Dragons Review May 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The drama continues in the second thrilling DRACIM novel of dragons and romance. The dragon lord has called for her head, her boyfriend is MIA and Carol Jenski has been abandoned in a foreign country. In exchange for help from reporter Daniel Wallent, she’s agreed to go undercover in another dragon lord’s territory and gets caught up in another dramatic and dangerous dragon challenge.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of action, suspense, betrayals, drama and romance. The author describes the scenes and events with well written details that inspire vivid images and capture the imagination. Spine tingling tension builds throughout as the story progress and the danger escalates and the strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

The attraction between Carol and Daniel radiates heat from every page and the sex scenes are hot and steamy, but the relationship has sparks exploding from every direction as the two collide with lots of arguments and snarky dialogue. The reader can’t help but empathize with Carol’s situation as she is betrayed by one boyfriend and attracted to another that might only be after the next big story, not to mention the hazardous condition of being around dragons. Daniel’s ruthless attitude inspires sparks of outrage, but then he makes up for those moments with sweet and thoughtful moments that he tries to disguise.

The danger and tension of the dragon lord takeover adds even more drama to Carol’s story, just how much can one girl take and all this because she understands dragonspeak? The author has created a fascinating futuristic world where dragons are the norm and the humans have to deal with them on an everyday basis.
