This one - well, it is all about the female lead and all she does is whine, whine, whinge, and whine. Note the picture of the strong woman on the cover. That is the only strong, kick axx woman you will get. Plus the lead has a big episode about her "lovely long red" hair and she whines all the rest of the book about it. Her hair NEVER looked like the woman's on the cover before or after and she never held a gun, much less held one in such a confident pose at the end of toned arms. I thought we might be getting somewhere with the character in the Italian scenes, but after some good stuff, she leaves there and goes back to whining. I wanted to read about the cover woman, not the whiner.
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. Christensen gave an expansive description of the female dress of Indian women and given how much I love this saris and salwar kameez, it was fantastic to finally get an idea of how intricate the clothes really are.
The dragon lords make for some formidable foes, but Ms. Christensen also shows their very human (pardon the expression) emotions and side with the Indian dragon lord Savitra and the dragon's fierce loyalty to her mate. That (so to speak) humanizing of the dragons just made me fall in love that much more with this world and its dragons and humans trying to rebuild the world after the human/dragon wars (aka World War III in a form no one ever saw coming).
I dearly hope there will be more books in this series and look forward to finding more by Ms. Christensen in the future (whether or not they're dragon books). Five thrilled dragon stars for this book!

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.
