Publisher's Summary

Half human and half Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful---and passionate---of the Elder Races.

As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in one another.

What the Critics Say

"This is an outstanding blend of romantic suspense and urban fantasy with great storytelling and world building, extremely sensuous scenes that move the story arc along, and characters [listeners] will be reluctant to leave." (Booklist)

    "Yummy! Just downloaded the rest!"

    Great book...it had action, it had steam, it had intricate memorable characters, so good! I was worried this would be more of the same but this book surprised me, the humor was brodering on Molly Harper like, and the world is as intricate as Black Dagger Brotherhood. I really liked it!

    Story
    "Old Style Romance in Paranormal Setting"

    If Harlequin did paranormal in the '80's, this would have been it. I think I was expecting more nail-biting drama, but overall I was adequately satisfied with this fully fleshed out, somewhat lighthearted tale. Maybe lighthearted isn't the right word. There was conflict and suspense after all, it just never really gripped me in a way that had me emotionally invested. I'd give it a weak 4 stars or perhaps a strong 3 stars, just slightly better than average. I was concerned about the narration because I read one review that said all the characters sounded like surfers from Southern California even though the characters reside in New York. Born and raised near the beach in Southern California, I did not think I could handle that for 16 hours--had enough of that, thank you very much. But, seriously, they did not sound like So Cal surfers, except for maybe the character Tricks. To me, a lot of the characters sounded more like bored socialites. Maybe not from New York, but definitely not surfers from So Cal either. (I mean, seriously, I would like, you know, totally know.) The narrator did an average job. There was not enough distinction between characters to warrant any more than an average rating for narration. She didn't necessarily detract from the story, but she certainly didn't add. I might listen to another in the series. I just need to reset my expectation level.

    The first book in the series was wonderful. I enjoyed the start of the Elder Series and that world. Dragons... Gryphons....Vampires...... What a fun world to visit!

    If you could sum up Dragon Bound in three words, what would they be?

    Mysticism - Today


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is not completely predictable - only partially. Adult content, in a magical story of today, which has its truth for all of us in it too.


    What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

    She readers the story so it really grips you.

    I Love to read and I am all over the place. From Fantasy to Non Fiction to True Crime. Sadly even some Romance novels which I never thought I would read but they turned out to be not bad some even good as long as they had some fantasy in them

    "Wow wow."

    I was not familiar with this author or narrator, so my first time. The story was great. Pia was a fallible heroine who struggled with her identity. No mistake about Dragos, but Pia is able to tame him.
    Sophie Eastlake was the perfect narrator.

    "Extremely surprised by the book"

    When I read the summary for this particular book, I wasn’t expecting too much. But I bought the book because it was on sale. I was extremely happy with my purchase. The storyline is detailed and engaging. I found myself listening to this book all day until I finished and then re-listened to the book after I was finish. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series.

    Story
    "WHO KNEW ABOUT DRAGONS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragon Bound to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print version and would not have as I am not typically drawn to these types of books. I was looking for something different in romance and just happened upon this one, bought it with credits and am extremely happy I did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragon Bound?

    Because the book had many facets and twists and turns there were several memorable moments, most especially those times when Dragos' tenderness towards Pia came through.


    Which character – as performed by Sophie Eastlake – was your favorite?

    Both Dragos and Pia. I think she did a fabulous job. Male voices could have been a little more husky, but overall I think she did well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It kept me anxious at times and stirred my insides - I did laugh on a couple of occasions.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my very own dragon.

    "So-So"

    I like the characters but somehow the book doesn't do them justice. The book just didn't capture my interests. I told myself that if she was a (spoiler alert) unicorn, I was done with the book. I did finish it but just barely. I don't know if I will get anymore in the series, it was just so ordinary, nothing special. Although I liked the narrator's female voices, I don't think her male voices were the right choice for the characters, saying that I still think she did a fine job narrating.
