I admit, I couldn't remember exactly who Vigholf was at the start, (this world is pretty complex, very fun, but there are dragons everywhere to keep track of!) - but as soon as a reference was made to Annwyl cutting the long warrior hair off a dragon and having it attached to her helmet - Vigholf was the unlucky warrior who received this hair cut in the previous book. There are so many different players in this world, it's little crazy moments like that, that once they get recalled it instantly puts you back into their world and back on familiar ground with everyone. Surprisingly, the main romance in this newest installment was fairly straight forward, and dare I say the most "normal" of all the relationships so far. Vigholf has known and worked by Rhona for years, but only recently he's made his intentions toward her known, at least to her. He's already warned off all the dragons from her. What's great about Vigholf is he's sort of adorably clueless when it comes to Rhona. Put him on a war field or preparing for battle and there's no one else you'd want by your side, but dealing with his feelings for Rhona is too much for him to handle at times and Rhona doesn't make it easy, in a good way.

Rhona is a solider and has no desire to rise any higher in rank, which annoys her mom, a commanding officer herself. She wants all her daughters to be Dragonwarriors and this just isn't Rhona. Instead, Rhona was the one who raised her siblings when her mother went off to fight battle after battle, and while Rhona raised her sisters to be the next Dragonwarriors, she'd be just as happy to follow in her father's footsteps, being an amazing Master Blacksmith.

I couldn't put this book down--great mix of action, humor, romance and suspense. I liked the main characters and how their relationship developed over the first half of the book. They didn't immediately jump into bed together. It was good seeing the characters from the earlier books--the way the author brought them back into this book was very well handled. (Except for Keita, who continues to get on my nerves. She wasn't in this one a lot--thank goodness.) There's a lot of violence in this book, but I like a good fight scene so that's ok by me. The war scenes at the end were very suspenseful and full of action. I was on the edge of my seat. The dialogue was well written, often funny, and believable. Up until now book 3 has been my favorite (Gwenvael & Dagmar were hilarious!), but this was just as great. Aiken really brought her 'A' game with The Dragon Who Loved Me. Can't wait for the next one!

If you haven't read this series, it's one of the better fantasy romance/PNR series about dragon shapeshifters. Best to read the books in order, since each story builds on the earlier ones and characters show up in later books. The books tend to have a lot of action/violence, bawdy humor and a nice amount romance. The sex scenes are typical for what you find in mainstream romance books--steamy but not over the top.

I love this series, the first three books had me cracking up and What a Dragon should know is my all time favorite. Aiken did so well with that book and those characters (Gwenvael and Dagmar) that I felt like the last book Last Dragon Standing didn't stand up to the previous books. I still love the family and had to get The Dragon Who Loved Me. I'm glad I did. While Dagmar's book is still my favorite, this book was better than the last.

For those of you who haven't read the first four books you need to, for those of you who don't remember who Vigholf is, don't worry I didn't either. The author is very good at catching you up. Rhona is a soldier and a good one at that, she's also royal by blood and part of Fearghus' crazy blood thirsty family. Vigholf is a bit different, while he is a skilled warrior he honestly feels women have no place in battle... therefore Rhona has no patience or time for him. Unfortunately for both (fortunately for readers) VIgholf has always wanted her, she is not just blood thirsty, she is kind and cares for hatchlings. For me I loved that she wasn't just battle crazed and she also is very maternal.

The majority of the book is fast paced, there is war going on and all our old characters are called on in different capacities to fight. There are secret missions, full out battles and private skirmishes being fought over the pages. I adored how focused on war this book was. While we got to see the romance blossom between our leading characters, there is action and thrills along the way. I am pleased to say I liked this book way better than Keita's and am anxious to see which dragon will succumb next.

Like the previous book, the romance in The Dragon Who Loved doesn't get to hog the spotlight. In this latest Dragon Kin story there's sort of a three pronged attack with the starring pair being the focus as they move between the other main threads with: the dragon brothers (Briec, Feargus, Gwenvael, and Eibhear), their Cadwaladr kin and the Northern Dragons in one battling group; Annwyl and Izzy sneaking off from Annwyl's army for a secret mission in another; and Dagmar, and Talaith minding the kids and holding down the home front in the third - all of which allows us to catch up with pretty much everyone from all of the past books. It was fun to see past characters, though some of them don't quite 'pop' like they did in their own stories.

The leading pair this time is a Cadwaladr cousin Rhona, and while she is every bit as deadly as her kin, Rhona is, gasp, a nurturer so much different than our past leading ladies and Vigholf who has seemed a bit cloddish in the past book is amazing patient in waiting for his chance with the dragoness he has decided is his and ends up a pretty decent leading man - um, dragon. There are weapons and wounds along the way for Rhona and Vigholf but for a dragon dragon pairing, their courtship is amazingly smooth but still steamy and satisfying and wrapped up in a happily ever after - unlike previous pair Keita and Ragna who are here briefly and who are still working on theirs.
