This if the first 1001 Dark Nights book I have read and the first of the Dark Kings Series as well. So that means I will not be comparing it to the rest. The beginning was a bit slow, but it heats up fast. I found it to be exciting and fun to read. Oh to find a cave like that with more in it than you could ever imagine, a secret worth discovering. Donna Grant brings this story to life and paints such a vivid tale that it is easy to lose track of time while being totally engrossed in the lives of Grace and Arian. Grace is unlike any character I have seen. She seems to have no problem sharing her private thoughts evens when it embarrasses her. I am used to characters holding back some, but not her. It is refreshing. Just wait till they crank up the heat. It will have you wanting more. I have so got to read more of this series.
Grace goes to Scotland trying to overcome her writers block. She gets trapped out in the middle of nowhere during a terrible storm. Arian is a Dragon King who just woke from his 600 year nap and wants to know what this woman is doing on his mountain, followed by his enemy. Stuck in the middle of a war, will Grace be able to prove her innocents or will she die trying?
I love reading them, because it seems to be in a little fairy tale dimension, although adult fairy tales in this case.
"Dragon King" also is part of the paranormal romance series "Dark Kings" (# 6.25).
The story of Arian and Grace has for me all the charm of Dark Kings series and its shapeshifting dragons, a very ancient and powerful race, nearly invincible, because of their magic; their lives changed a lot when humans appeared on Earth.
Despite being a short story, the author has managed putative us the salient facts of the Dragon Kings's past, the conflicts and struggles that divided them. For this reason the book could be read as standalone, though certainly some nuances about secondary characters maybe lose a little bit.
I love the Dragon Kings, I love their reality, so full of magic and I'm intrigued from their memories, a past when their dragons flyied in the sky freely, I like to imagine them as well.
They're creatures with extraordinary powers, proud fighters and despite everything they protect human people who are unaware of the dangers and of the existence of supernatural creatures. What I prefer the most in them is the depth of their feelings when they find their mate, they're are literally overwhelmed by the intensity of what they feel and everything for them is questioned, also the orders they receive from the King of Kings,Con.
Arian also is no different, once he's sure Grace isn't a threat for his brethen, he lets go and enjoying her presence in his cave, even if he has to deal with his need to protect her and the duties to his race.
Grace is very funny, she always speaks her mind and she's totally focused on her mission to go ahead and write her book, but Arian is too much, to remain indifferent. When she discovers his dragon nature for her it's a real wonder, because of her open mind full of imagination.
Everything happens quickly between them, thanks to the storms , and the unusual beauty of Arian's mountain, and the attraction between them it's impossible to resist.
It was fun to see how Con as usual is annoyed when the other Dragon Kings find their mates among humans. He always try to do everything to put a spoke in the wheels, and his choices and behavior, always remain a mystery to me. I never understand what is running in his head, but it's worth seeing as the Dragon Kings fights him and how he must swallow the toad.
I can't wait to read more stories about the Dragon Kings and see if some mysteries concealed by Donna Grant will be revealed eventually to us.
A woman on a mission Grace Clark has always done things safe. She's never colored outside of the law, but she has a book due and has found the perfect spot to break through her writer's block. Or so she thinks. Right up until Arian suddenly appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn't just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian - the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she's ever met. (Amazon Blurb)
A woman after my own heart!! Grace Clark is hilarious, has witty comments and although is afraid of the oddest things, she is brave when it counts. As for Arian, he is a man who is bred for chivalry and yet knows a woman’s worth, especially when faced with the worst odds. Between the action, the witty comments, the tension between characters and especially the underlying need (both physical, sexual and emotional), there is never a dull moment – I often found myself laughing out loud (to the great confusion of my family), sympathizing with Grace and fidgeting in my seat, wondering what will happen next and especially couldn’t wait to get to the end, only to realize that the next part isn’t ready yet, which is my only complaint! Donna Grant, and I must admit that this is the first time I’ve had the chance to read her novels, but not the 1001 Dark Nights series, has created a monster in me and I now have to buy her series, she was that good. Really.
