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)
Say something about yourself!
This wasn't a bad book, but if you've read very many paranormal/sci-fi/fantasy romance novels, you'll be able to predict this storyline about 1/4 of the way through the first half of the book. It's decently written and decently narrated. The story is ok and the sex scenes are ok. It's engaging enough, but it wasn't a stand out. I'm not sure if I'll get any of the other books in the series.
Loved the Performance on this audio book, which is only backed by a very well defined and crafted world of dragons, griffins, elves. We are taking the initial journey with the main character Pia and Dragos' and cannot wait to see what happens next!
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.
