Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, "Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us - the most loved of all dragons?" No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence, as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer.
So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call the Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying...woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman - one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor?
And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart?

"The wonderfully wacky and perverse nature of Aiken's stories and characters are guaranteed to produce laughs." (RT Book Reviews)
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
I love the members of this story.. Everyone dragon & human.. I hope this series NEVER ends..
Anwyl coming back to life, the bits with the twins
the narrator's voice reduced these headstrong lovable characters to annoying and unbearable.
I had a few laugh out loud moments
No. The narration of the story nearly ruined the fun banter between the characters. I yearn for Morgan Hallett's narration and hope she is persuaded to redo this (and the others done by Jackson) book.
The source material is the only reason I didn't request a refund. I love Aiken/Laurenston's work enough to suffer through the narration. If
I started with Morgan Hallett (her narrated versions were available first) and am saddened that this series has been given to Jackson. Her ability to do masculine voices leaves much to be desired.
Where is Morgan Hallett when you need her?
If you've reached the third book of this series, you know what to expect...and you get that and more, when the Beauty...er....Handsomest of Dragons meets his match when he finds a bespectacled and unassuming, but oh so very dangerous, Beast.
