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.

"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)
It was funny and had a great story line.
The dragon himself. Because how could you hate someone who tries to enjoy life so hard.
The scene where dragos finds out what love really feels like.
I made me laugh out loud.
Very entertaining! I would gladly listen to it again and want to get the rest of the series.
I've never read/listen to this author before and I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised with this book. Definitely hooked on this series and can't wait for my next credit to get book number 2. Thea has given her characters a witty humor that kept me laughing and I can't wait to see how her characters continue to grow in the next books.
Avid Reader when not teaching, being a Mommy, or gamer. Loves just about anything!
Hearing the snappy dialogue out loud.
This was the first one. It wasn't bad, but I felt that Dragos needed a more masculine voice.
No book is perfect, but this one comes close. In the first 10 minutes it had me hooked. One weakness in lots of these books is the 'love interest' comes at the beginning and the story goes from there. That doesn't happen here and it adds interest. Great book.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, i literally could not stop listening .
I couldn't choose just one....
I thought she did a wonderful job.
Definitely worth a credit
Suspenseful, cute, and violent.
I loved Drogos. He was so complex, simultaneously terrifying and loving.
No I have not, but I will be sure to look out for her in the future.
This was my first experience with this author. I loved this book so much that I immediately went out and bought another book in this series, which I did not love as much. However, this book was so good that I will definitely give her another shot.
very good listen... hot and steamy and good story line...I think I would have put this one right at the top of my list, only if there were more books about the same two characters.
I need more ears!
Although I am a devoted fan, so many of the various series in this genre are predictably weak in character development. Not all, but many. The formula is always the same: A group of muscle-bound males with special powers, who are devoted to each other and live in a compound, overcome trials and tribulation as they: 1) seek to find their perfect love match, or 2) are determined to never have a mate. Either way, sexy time ensues. All the women are perfect and variously described as curvy or small breasted and slender. Other than that, the women really don't have much to do until bedtime.
While offering a similar sequence of events in her Dragon Bound series, the comparison is only superficial. Unlike others who write paranormal romance novels, Thea Harrison actually writes books. Her characters have dimension, their stories are complex and the issues they have to overcome are interesting and original. Even sexy time is original the way Harrison writes it.
Most of the time, I devour these series like bon bons -- and they're about as filling. And most of the time, I can't wait for the next book to come out.
Not so with this series. As far as I'm concerned, Thea Harrison needs to take her time and write good books. Her books are worth waiting for.
