Dragon shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates - so much so they're taking matters into their own hands. What better place to capture a woman than Earth? After all, dragon shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself.
While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he's ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock 'n' roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

Near the top.
Loved EVE and Kyran as well.
Good as reading or even better. His characters are defined and fun. As is the dialogue.
Yes and did so.
Determined Prince: 5 star audio 6/1/16
UPDATE: JUNE 2016
I HAVE ADDED THE AUDIO TO MY LIBRARY: What a fun listen. I read this when it first came out and now have had time to forget some of the wonderful parts. Listening to the story and hearing some of the smart (or not) remarks by Eve and misinterpreted things by Kyran and the other Draigs, made me laugh out loud. I truly loved it even more than just reading the book.
Determined Prince is the delightful beginning of a new series. Five star. This is a prequel series, before dragon shifters and cat shifters changed from friends to enemies. Eve is singing in a band and allowing herself to drink this one day of the year—her birthday-- she meets dragon shifter Prince Kyran who has come for a bride. Rocker Eve thinks he's hot and talks funny, but with enough tequila she can ignore the conversation. Until she wakes up and she's not in “Kansas” anymore. Can a rocker from Cleveland become a princess? Can a staid Prince adapt to a feisty human female?
These are not the only problems. The stronger question is how do his people feel about such a match? Or are there enemies ready to do anything to prevent such a match?
I only have one problem with this book—WHERE IS THE NEXT ONE?
The writing and narration were both good.
He brings the characters to life.
It was a short read. The concept was interesting.
I liked the beginning best of all. A prince from another realm coming to earth to find a mate.
The over self confidence, trying to blend in using knowledge gained from old books and tv shows that gave him the wrong impression on the woman he does finally find.
I liked Ev. She was a strong person who found herself in a strange situation. She kept her cool and didnt cower in front of Kyran.
A story with a strong heroine and a hero that learns his place. An enjoyable book.
I liked this book. The beginning was very comical. The Shifters came to earth and ended up in a bar dressed like The Village People due to old information given to them. Eve is a singer at the bar and she locks eyes with Kyran. It is Eve's birthday and she celebrates by drinking too much and agreeing to be with Kyran. When she wakes up on his planet she is in for a big dragon shifting surprise.
I really loved the determination and honesty of this intriguing storyline. It caught my attention and held my heart captive the entire time. This is a series that I would love to delve into more. The characters are fascinating and the story itself is exhilarating.
This story is unique enough that I haven't read another story similar to it yet.
Prince Kyran is by far my favorite character second only to Eve. Kyran is a beautiful character whose heart was completely dedicated and wholly focused on claiming Eve for his heart and his future. He did whatever he could to help her cope and come to terms with her fate with him. He was kind and never cruel. He did everything she asked, and through it all she ultimately allowed herself to fall in love with him.
If your heart is pure and your determination absolute, you can claim the future you desire.
I really enjoyed this wonderous story that was full of humor, heartfelt emotion, and utter determination. Love truly conquered all.
I did laugh out loud a few times but overall this wasn’t a very good story and I probably won’t go forward with the series. I have read 7 or 8 of Ms. Pillow’s books and most I’ve enjoyed but this one, not so much. I really didn’t like the way Eve was described doing her singing act: the banging of her head or the screaming of the songs she was “singing.” And she was pretty rude and nasty to Kyran for most of the story, until she was suddenly in love with him.
I did really like Kyran, Finn, Ivar and Rafe. They were all pretty strangely dressed when the went to earth to look for a wife for Kyran. They did remind you of the Village People.
There was 1 explicit sex scene and the F-bomb was used 2 times.
As to the narration: David Brenin was OK for me. The women’s voices weren’t so great and there were several times someone in the book laughed and DB couldn’t be bothered. I’ve listened to about 4 other books that were narrated by DB, and there were 2 where I gave him 4 and 5 stars so I know he can be wonderful. Just not in this one.
I rarely review stories but wanted to share that I really didn't like this story. From the way it's laid out to the way it was written was disjointed and written weird. I won't be buying the rest of the series.

Yes .. I would recommend because many of my friends love Dragon Shifter stories.
I enjoyed this story because it took me back to when it all began before the brides were chosen by a charm. I also loved that Eve was no easy pushover and the chemistry between her and Prince Kyran was fantastic.
I liked how he handled Prince Kyran.
Dragons head back to Earth.
I was gifted this audible for my honest review.
