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)

    "A bit cheesy, but adventure and characters win!"

    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.

    "Great story Butt !!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Thea Harrison’s story?

    way too much in the sex scenes. over done.


    Any additional comments?

    just tone down the sex scenes so many better ways to get the same idea across

    "Why did it take me so long to listen to this one?!"
    Which character – as performed by Sophie Eastlake – was your favorite?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "What a fantastic read!"
    Where does Dragon Bound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has become one of my favorite books. What a pleasant surprise.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Pia. Understated but fierce for her size and disposition.


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

    Dragos. She does an excellent job conveying his alpha male status.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dragos first catches up with Pia. This moment is electric.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this story to all my friends.

    Story
    "Decent Fantasy Not Greatly Written"
    What disappointed you about Dragon Bound?

    Fairly cheesy story line with unrealistic characters.


    What was most disappointing about Thea Harrison’s story?

    Not a proper fantasy book


    What does Sophie Eastlake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice of the dragon is not done justice by her high pitched voice. Hard to really get into the characters


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dragon Bound?

    Couldn't even get through the whole book


    Any additional comments?

    Ok if your looking for a mind numbing sex fantasy but not overly thrilling

    "Enjoyable"

    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.

    Story
    "Distracting passages"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    Would you recommend Dragon Bound to your friends? Why or why not?

    Depends on the person


    Did Sophie Eastlake do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There was little voice variation, and the males still sounded female in voice...my opinion.
