Grace is in a bind. Her publisher is pressuring her to turn in her next book in a few weeks. It’s already way past due. She has ran off to Scotland to find her missing muse. All Grace wants to do is find the perfect quiet spot to write her book, muse permitting. As luck would have it she finds that spot but soon discovers that a cranky man who doesn’t want her anywhere near his cave is already there.
Having slept for the past six hundred years Arian is behind on some things but thanks to Constantine keeping him up on most current events he knows that the Dragon Kings are once again at war. Arian also knows not to trust anyone because enemies are at every turn. Now Arian is left to discover if the beauty with the laptop is a spy sent by their enemies or if she truly is as she says, just looking for a peaceful place.
This installment of the Dark King series could easily work as a stand-alone. There are not any advancements made in the events that have been occurring in the full length novels. There were not any major revelations made that concern the conflicts that the Dragon Kings have been facing.

Hibernating Dragon King Arian and romance author Grace and up together in a most unlikely chance meeting. Grace has no idea just what she’s stumbled upon and Arian is transfixed by Grace’s personality and beauty. Both equally wary and curious of one another, they form a bond and attraction that I can only describe as delicious.
I loved Arian and the story of how this mountain became his bed of sorts. I loved how curious he was about Grace and how enamored and taken he was with her and her quirky nature. I also loved how kind and caring he was with her. He melted my heart with his tenderness and caring (even though he played a bit on her weakness to get her to stay with him…I know, I know, but I can totally forgive him for that!). I also loved Grace. She is real and relatable with a great personality and a tenacious attitude when it came to her writing. She also broke m heart when we learned of her past love life.
Ms. Grant wrote one of my favorite paragraphs in any book, and it came when Grace and Arian became intimate. She wrote that Grace had been writing passion wrong…because it had been so long since she had experienced true passion and she forgot what it actually felt like. That one paragraph had me hoping like a feind these two would somehow make things work.
Of course that would involve the little obstacle of Arian being a dragon. Luckily, Grace being as amazing as she is, it wouldn’t be the biggest problem they had to overcome.Read more ›
Anyway, needless to say I was viewing this read with great anticipation, this being the first read focused solely on Dragons. The thought of them quite intrigued me after having my fill of vamps and werewolves, shifters and demons.
Unfortunately for me, I was in for a bit of a disappointment. Oh, the premise held promise and the Dragons were fine. They seemed sufficiently regal and dangerous, brooding and, of course, gorgeously handsome. There was just something a little lacking in the telling.
The heroine, Grace, after suffering writers block for months, suddenly finding her nirvana on the Dragon’s mountain spits out page after page of perfect prose which just seemed to me to be a little unbelievable. I know it’s a story about magical creatures so you might just say, “So, it’s magic!” Well no, because she’s human. Dragons are magic, humans are not. I know the story goes that Robert James Waller apparently wrote ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ in two weeks which is a pretty amazing feat, but a book in two days? Yeah, just not buying it.
And then for Arian, the Dragon King in question, to go from suspicion to desire to love all without real transition smacked – dear I say it - of author manipulation rather than being character driven.
This was, of course, a novella, so the author had to cram a whole lot of feeling into a small amount of words. She just didn’t hit the mark for me.Read more ›
