About DRAGON KING: A Dark Kings Novella:

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.

A King with a Purpose

Arian is a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave. Recently woken, he's about to leave his mountain to join his brethren in a war when he's alerted that someone has crossed onto Dreagan. He's ready to fight . . . until he sees the woman. She's innocent and mortal—and she sets his blood aflame. He recognizes the danger approaching her just as the dragon within him demands he claim her for his own...

Excerpt:

Grace was screwed. Royally screwed. As in, her career was over. Finished. Finite.

She turned on the windshield wipers and slowed the car as she drove through the rain in the mountains. With a renewed grip on the steering wheel, she sent a quick prayer that the rain would stop.

A little sprinkle she could handle. A storm...well, that was another matter entirely.

She puffed out her cheeks as she exhaled. If only she was in Scotland for a holiday, but that wasn’t the case at all. In a last-ditch effort to give her muse a good swift kick in the pants, Grace decided to travel to Scotland.

All her friends thought she had lost her mind. Her editor thought it was just one more excuse in a very long line of them as to why she hadn’t turned the book in.

Grace wished she knew the reason the words just stopped coming. One day they were there, and the next...gone, vanished. Poof!

Writing wasn’t just her career. It was her life. Because within the words and pages she was able to write about heroines who had relationships she would never have. It was the sad truth, but it was the truth.

Grace accepted her lot...in a way. She might realize the string of miserable dates were complete misses and admit that. However, the stories running through her head allowed her to dream as far as she could, and encounter men and adventures sitting behind a computer never would.

Not being able to find the words anymore was like having someone steal her soul.

She breathed a sigh of relief when the rain stopped and she was able to turn off her windshield wipers. In the two hours since she checked into the B&B, it hadn’t stopped raining.

Rain was a part of being in Scotland, and she was pushing herself with her fear of storms to be out in it as well. It proved how far she would go to find her soul again. She needed to write, to sink into another world where she could find happiness and a love that lasted forever.

Now she was armed with her laptop and steely determination. She would find her muse again. Just as soon as she found the right place. The scenery along the highway was stunning, but the noise of the passing vehicles would be too much.

Grace needed somewhere off the beaten path. Somewhere she could pretend she was the only person left in the world.

My Review

I love this series so much! It's such a fun read, with great dragon lore, and of course HAWT guys all over. And not to mention how hilarious it is to make Con furious because all his kings are finding human mates. Con is really serious about keeping his dragons safe from the human women who can cause so much hurt.  And this one is extra special. Arian has been sleeping for a long time... like centuries. So, he's naked, in a cave, and holy hawtness, when the lovely Grace accidentally walks right into his cave that's supposed to be invisible to humans. Oh and then she is stuck there, so there's the awkward bonding moment that is great. 

Grace is a writer, who's had a block for a while, so she decided to travel. To a very rain country. And she is terribly afraid, like deathly-phobia- of thunderstorms. There's definitely some twists to this, but when a bad storm makes her run through the hills into a cave for shelter to find Arian very naked, some kind of sexy on a stick, who is basically intimidating and scary and yet completely wanted. LOL Oh and he's kinda old and ornery and pushy. And he's very confused about some things that shouldn't be. 

Arian has been a sleeping dragon, for a long long time. Con comes by and refreshes things for him and how they've changed, but the kings are at war again, and things are happening and he needs to help. And the dark fae are everywhere trying to get into their home. So, when Grace comes in, he wants to kill her, because she's probably a spy. But he can't. :)

So much fun watching the dragon kings find their mates. I loved this one. It's short and sweet and it just made for so much more fun with a little piece of goodness to help wait for the next full length novel to come. Nothing major is done so it wouldn't ruin anything, but you would know how things turned out for previous dragons so maybe a little bit spoilery. ;) overall I just happen to love this whole series, so 5 PAWS!!!
