Publisher's Summary

Dragon shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates - so much so they're taking matters into their own hands. What better place to capture a woman than Earth? After all, dragon shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself.

While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he's ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock 'n' roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

Good

I wasn't sure about this audiobook. For me it was ok. I think the other stories this author writes is way better than this one.

Dragons and a rock n roll princess

This book was enjoyable. It felt a bit under developed. i think that if it was longer and the minor characters were given more attention that this could have been a knock out!

Not a favorite..

I did laugh out loud a few times but overall this wasn’t a very good story and I probably won’t go forward with the series. I have read 7 or 8 of Ms. Pillow’s books and most I’ve enjoyed but this one, not so much. I really didn’t like the way Eve was described doing her singing act: the banging of her head or the screaming of the songs she was “singing.” And she was pretty rude and nasty to Kyran for most of the story, until she was suddenly in love with him.

I did really like Kyran, Finn, Ivar and Rafe. They were all pretty strangely dressed when the went to earth to look for a wife for Kyran. They did remind you of the Village People.

There was 1 explicit sex scene and the F-bomb was used 2 times.

As to the narration: David Brenin was OK for me. The women’s voices weren’t so great and there were several times someone in the book laughed and DB couldn’t be bothered. I’ve listened to about 4 other books that were narrated by DB, and there were 2 where I gave him 4 and 5 stars so I know he can be wonderful. Just not in this one.

too short

The story was good just too short. I'll decide on if I want to buy the other books once I know how long they are.

Determined Prince

Would you try another book from Michelle M. Pillow and/or David Brenin?

Yes.

The writing and narration were both good.

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

He brings the characters to life.

Was Determined Prince worth the listening time?

Yes.

It was a short read. The concept was interesting.

I liked the beginning best of all. A prince from another realm coming to earth to find a mate.

The over self confidence, trying to blend in using knowledge gained from old books and tv shows that gave him the wrong impression on the woman he does finally find.

I liked Ev. She was a strong person who found herself in a strange situation. She kept her cool and didnt cower in front of Kyran.

Any additional comments?

A story with a strong heroine and a hero that learns his place. An enjoyable book.

Usual stuff

The usual alien romance theme of not enough females so earth women have to be the solution. It had some cute moments when an alien is trying to understand the quirks of earthlings which leads to funny misunderstandings. But overall, it just wasn’t enough.

Good start to the series

This was a good start to what I hope will be a very good series. Eve was a fun character and she had no idea what would happen to her when she got drunk on her birthday and flirted with a hot cowboy. Kyran is one of the princes of the dragon shifters and him along with the cat shifter princes go on a mission to earth to find a bride and they decide he will go first to find a bride. They need to find a bride from earth because their birthdates of females have dropped significantly. The princes have no idea about earth and have only learned from tv shows and movies so of course they don’t learn what earth is actually like and show up dressed in costumes as they look for someone to bring back to their planet. Kyran brings Eve back when he thinks she’s agreed to be his bride and she gets a rude awakening when she wakes up on an alien planet married to a dragon shifter. She insisted she must be insane till she had to realize she wasn’t. And her getting to know Kyran and they butted heads at times and they definitely had some communication issues which were funny. I want to know more about this world and their culture. I hope we get to see Eve and Kyran since this book was a bit short. I wish we had gotten more of this story especially this faction that doesn’t want the human females coming over and polluting their genes. I am curious to see how Eve will affect their bride getting process since she actually understands earth and that you can’t just kidnap someone and expect it to go well. I listened to this as an audiobook and the narrator did a fantastic job with the voices and emotions.

Good book

This is the first book in the series and is a stand alone book with a wonderful HEA. You have a dragon shift prince needing a bride but no females available meets a present day modern women. Let the adventure begin. I recommend this book to all shifter lovers. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Happy listening.

it was OK...

I found this audiobook at little hard to get into at first and had to stop listening to it half way through, but I'm glad I started it again as it did get better and I found myself enjoying it. The narrator did a excellent job with this one and its many different. I actually can't wait to listen to the second book in the series.

Great story

This was the very first book that I ever read by the author and to now be able to listen to it brought back so many memories as to why I enjoy this authors work.
Easy to listen to the book is written with a smooth pace, interesting characters and a richly described world. From this book I have found myself returning many times to the world that Michelle created to be delighted by the dragon and cat shifters that reside there.
It is not a long tale but well worth the read.

Dragon Shifter Meets His Match

Kyran, a dragon shifter who’s a bit over confident and full of himself (“I am a fierce dragon and will make a fine husband. A woman would be lucky to have me”), arrives on earth via a portal to find a bride. I laughed out loud when he, Finn, Ivar and Rafe turn up at the club Eve sings at, looking like rejects from the Village People! There’s instant attraction between Kyran and Eve. She flirts with him and he mistakes this for her agreeing to be his wife! So he carries a drunken Eve back through the portal to his world. This is a really light hearted read with Kyran misinterpreting Eve’s sarcastic remarks and actions. They are both stubborn and she’s also feisty, doesn’t like being constantly told she is his wife and a battle of wills ensues. Reminds me a little of the Taming of the Shrew. I listened to the audio whilst also following the ebook. So I had the best of both! It took me a while to get used to the narration of David Brenin as his voice sounded a little robotic at the beginning. I increased the speed of the audio which helped. It’s a short, entertaining story and I really liked Kyran and Eve. A good match. It will be fun to find out who’s next to find their mate!!!
