The legend of a virgin sacrifice and her fierydragon always intrigued me and the book "Dragons Don't Cry"retold it in a romantic way, spiced up with steamy scenes... and heartbreak.
Wouldyou be able to stay sane if time stopped for you but not your lover/soulmate?"

"Get ready for a rollercostar ride you won't forget. Dragons Don't Cry is suspenseful, sexy anddownright funny. I loved reading every minute of it.
The bickering between Acasia and Bastian will make you laugh your butt off.Acasia thinks she is the dragon's dinner and Bastian just wants a bride and hisdirty din.
Bastian is nothing but an old pompous fire breathing dragon that needs to bebrought down a few notches and Acasia is going to do just that. The thing isBastian has a good reason for being so pompous, he is sick to death of thecurse placed on him and the other dragons.
Both Bastian and Acasia are strong characters and once love really startssparking things really gets heated between them.
You get a great start to a world that is only going to build as each book isreleased with great main and side characters that you'll want to keep reading.If you love humor, action and a hot read then Dragon's Don't Cry is a mustread."

Bit of a spoiler alert here.... It should be mentioned, there was absolutely no rape in this story. Bastian was lonely after the death of his previous bride thirty-two years before he met Acasia; his loneliness was the main reason he felt compelled to select his newest bride... and met his true mate. Bastian is different from the other dragons, not in a rush to take their virginity but give them a chance to get to know him first, a seduction, of sorts. Bastian had over 70 brides before he met Acasia and remembered using a form of seduction with each of the previous brides, allowing them a chance to get to know him and being 'gifted' with their virginity. It was alluded that some of the other dragons felt taking their brides virginity quickly helped bond them faster, but McClain's tale did not hint at rape.
This reader was so caught up in the tale, she truly cannot recall any major - or minor for that matter - grammar, spelling or punctuation errors. There may have been a missing word in a sentence on occasion, or something of that sort, but all in all, this reader recalls finishing the story with a feeling of satisfaction and looking forward to reading the next dragon's story. Acasia and Bastian's love story was a good read, plain and simple, and I highly recommend this book and the author.
The curse: So the curse is broken once they find their true mates? Because I was confused on why Acascia survived and the other didn't. I even went back to reread the curse and nowhere does it say this. The cancer was really her transforming ? Or was that really cancer? I wish the curse has been clearer on this.
I'm also no clear on what world Acascia lives in but I'm willing to bet it was an alternate universe because she didn't even know what an airplane was let alone a cell phone. And what powers do these dragons have? I kept thinking the Dmitri and his mate had a story that I was missing. Does Dmitri have his own story I'm not aware of from another novel? If so, it would have been nice to know that besides this being a standalone that characters from another book previous book make an appearance
Anyways, what I did like is that Laryn does get to see his hope for the future. I don't agree with his stealing of another's bride and his pain shouldn't be an excuse, but I couldn't feel angry towards him. I felt this could have used more humor and the brides have more interaction with each other. but this is only the first book so maybe the second one will be better. There are a total of 6 books in all and I'm conflicted with whether or not I want to purchase the next one since this first one was free. We'll see. You'll just have to decide for yourself. I'm 50/50 on continuing this series...
Bastion and his kind are cursed by a goddess to live one hundred thousand years during which they will endlessly wait and hope for the one woman that might be their true mate. If they find her the curse for him will be lifted. So every 100 years the dragons come and select a new claiming bride that will remain with them till their dying day. Unknown by anyone the dragons feel deeply for their life companions and suffer greatly and mourn deeply when they die. Acasia doesn't cower or simper to Bastion even at the first she rears up and gets in the dreaded dragons face with her sass. Bastion and Acasia have a ways to go during which time they will learn to trust, to understand their dragon as he does the same with her. For each dragon and his claiming bride hopefully love will find the pair for however long it lasts.
This book was wonderfully written with great detail and vibrant rich characters that you find yourself feeling for. Bastion and Acasia's interactions are funny, fast, and snappy. The other dragons are present and you find yourself looking forward to their stories. The book took me to lofty heights, plunged me into anger and sadness. It made me laugh and hope and I even cried my eyes out in a couple of spots but I'm a real sucker for a great story. I'll definitely be putting the rest of the books on the top of my wish list and I'll be on the lookout for other works by this author. Read, experience, and enjoy the book!
