If you're looking for a story that is other-worldly, very sexy, mysterious, and serves up a hearty laugh every chapter, you've found it! This book has been a recommendation for me from Audible for awhile, and after finally purchasing it, I didn't listen for a few months more. Don't make this same mistake, get this book TODAY and indulge yourself. If this first book is any indication of the series, I'm purchasing the rest and letting the binge-listening commence!
The narration was very good; there wasn't a point in the story where things lagged, and I laughed out loud throughout. Dragos is one stunner of a Wyr-man-dragon-sexy beast! His fiery dragon sensibilities were hilarious and sexy all at the same time. Pair him with sarcastic spit-fire Pia, and you've got a seriously funny and romantic fantasy story that is well worth a credit and a 5-star rating across the board.

I have found another great series to listen to! I just love a good book that is written well and has everything in it, action, suspense, romance, and humor. I wished I did not wait so long to listen to the first book but will continue with the series.
I loved the quirky humor in the story and could not stop listening to the story. I literally stayed up and listened to it all the way through. I am so glad the second book comes out on 8/2/11. If you like Christine Feehan and Kim Harisson you will love this author
I have read a lot of paranormal, and I was surprised by how awesome - and how funny - this was. There is tons of action and I grew to really love Pia over the course of the book. She is stubborn, but not stubbornly stupid like some you just want to slap across the face. There is one scene in particular (let's just say it involved too much alcohol and girl bonding with a fae princess) that had me in tears it was so funny. Sophie Eastlake is a great narrator for this series.
This is a great series so far the characters are funny and interesting, it ranks up there with the Immortal after Dark series. I really liked Sophie Eastlake as a narrator, she does a wonderful job. There are some cases in which the narrator can ruin a book but not this one. I love paranormal romance books and its worth a credit. It started out a little slow, but I am glad I got it. Just downloaded the 3rd book hope its as good as the first 2.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Audio has put reading a book to shame.....Narration brings the characters and story to life. I can picture the story in my head while listening.....it's awesome! I love Audible!
It's a tie between Pia and Dragoes. Pia for her strength and determination and Dragoes for his will to learn to know love!
I think Dragoes but she did an awesome job with all the characters....I could see lavender haired Trix as Ms. Eastlake narrated.
No love like a dragons....
I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.
This is a well done adventure story. Dragos & Pia, as the romantic leads, are interesting, intelligent & courageous. Their characters & relationships develop as they are carried from one adventure to the next. The interest continues as things settle down for a bit while Pia finds her place in Dragos' world. The sex is steamy although there isn't a whole lot of down-time for that.
The supporting characters are fun too. So much so that I have listened to & enjoyed the entire series! However, this one is my favorite, and one I turn to when I can't sleep at night - just because it makes me feel good.
I spend 90+ minutes a day in my car, Audible makes it enjoyable regardless of what's happening in traffic. My taste varies from endurance fitness to economics and from to combat stories and romance novels.
While I knew this was going to be a romance novel, what I didn't know is how damn much I'd enjoy it. Take 50 Shades of Grey, substitute Sebastian Grey with a 1,500 year old dragon and add in a wicked sense of humor by a really talented author and you have the formula for Dragon Bound. It's light, playful, and doesn't take itself too seriously where the Psy-Changeling series sometimes does. While it has some of the same predictability that all romance novels tend to, the ability of the author to be playful and laugh a little really brought this book home for me.
I think I've found a new series.
Did I just say that? Yes, I did and, at least in this book, it is true!
This was my first Thea Harrison book, but not my last. Her writing is fun, adventurous, sexy and sexy. Did I mention sexy? Combined with Sophia Eastlake's proven talent, "Dragon Bound" is a winner.
