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)
I really enjoyed listening to this book. There were points of eye-roll inducing romance cheesiness, but the overall tone of the book is exciting and the characters are enjoyable, leaving me with good feelings when weighed all together. I am interested enough to seek out the next book in the series, and I am looking forward to it.
I loved the story concept my only problem with the whole book was the involvement into the sex scenes.. Don't get me wrong ... I do understand her need to establish the contact between characters... but at times the detail into the scenes was much to much so close to almost on the porn side. Some people might be ok with this but I have read many great books that didn't have to go into the details to get the points of the story across. Maybe this is just her way of filling a story because she lacks words. Could have been so much better.
way too much in the sex scenes. over done.
just tone down the sex scenes so many better ways to get the same idea across
She performed Pia very well but I did not like her portrayal of Dragos. I wish Max Bellmore had done the narration! I can just imagine Dragos' voice done by him.
I had this book in my wish list for MONTHS! I kept passing it up. Finally I got desparate for something to listen to and thought I would give it a listen. What an idiot! I really liked this story. Now I am downloading book two. Can't wait to listen to the whole series.
This has become one of my favorite books. What a pleasant surprise.
Pia. Understated but fierce for her size and disposition.
Dragos. She does an excellent job conveying his alpha male status.
When Dragos first catches up with Pia. This moment is electric.
I would recommend this story to all my friends.
Fairly cheesy story line with unrealistic characters.
Not a proper fantasy book
The voice of the dragon is not done justice by her high pitched voice. Hard to really get into the characters
Couldn't even get through the whole book
Ok if your looking for a mind numbing sex fantasy but not overly thrilling
I love the paranormal-romance genre, but I that doesn't mean I love every book in the genre. This one, however, I thoroughly enjoyed. It had all the things I love: humor, action, a dominant hero, and some good (well balanced) smexy times.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Loved the relationship of Pia and Drago, romance,funny,action you will not regret it I'm so sure I will love the series I've bought all of them....5 stars
I started with this book because it was on sale, but I am hooked now,and I have purchased all of the rest of this series. Worth every credit.
I purchased this book based on the story line. It had/has excellent potential. However, I was disappointed, again, to find explicit sexual passages that did not lend itself to the theme of the book.
True, some sexual interaction might have been fine, but the author goes into detail, and during a dangerous time of flight from an enemy. Not going to happen.
I keep forgetting that I should not purchase books written by a woman author. They seem to play to the exotic, romantic themes, using extreme details and during critically dangerous times.
Elizabeth Moon is still the only woman author that I enjoy fully. Her romantic passages are limited and just enough to get the point across.
Depends on the person
There was little voice variation, and the males still sounded female in voice...my opinion.
I loved Pia, she was a strong lead female character.
She did the different voices very well!
