Publisher's Summary

You are never too old for love! Pearl is the grandmother most people want to hide. There is one dragon-shifting warrior who is happy to kidnap her. Internationally acclaimed author S. E. Smith presents another scorching hot story sure to become one of your favorites!

Asim Kemark has lived a long, lonely life. It is his pledge to his former king and to Mandra Reykill that keeps him, his dragon, and his symbiot from going mad. He has given up on finding his true mate and devotes himself to caring for the wide assortment of creatures on Mandra and Ariel's mountain retreat. The last thing he expects to happen when he visits the palace is to lose control of his dragon and his symbiot after they sense their true mate. Before he knows it, he has kidnapped her!

Pearl St. Claire is enjoying a new adventure - learning to live on an alien planet. As a mature woman in her 60s, she thought she had experienced just about everything life could throw at her - only to discover she hasn't really experienced anything yet! She is both amused and exasperated when one of the dragon-shifting aliens kidnaps her, believing she is his true mate.

Life is no longer boring or lonely as Asim courts the enchanting and spirited human woman, but he isn't the only one who has noticed Pearl or the unusual animals under his care. When poachers attack, determined to steal the exotic creatures under his protection - including Pearl and a new clutch of alien eggs from Earth - he will do everything he can to protect them. Can one dragon keep the most precious creatures under his care safe, or will he lose the biggest battle of his life?

Pearl and Asim’s story

It appears that this story starts three years after the Easter Asim finds his mate Pearl, then he provides the story for that experience for the benefit of the Dragon Twins.
Pearl is recruited to teach Barack and Brogan basic skills for survival on Earth as Aikaterina is giving the Twin Dragons a second chance at life, and to find their mate.
Pearl’s rules are hilarious, heartbreaking, and useful.
Jaguin and his mate Sara were tasked by Aikaterina to oversee and assist them, with help from Adalard Ha’darra, prince of the Curizan. I strongly recommend reading Twin Dragons and Pearl’s Dragon before Twin Dragons’ Destiny.
Only negative for me is I don’t much care for stories that jump back and forth from present to past to present...
Brenin is truly the voice for this series.

Additional Note: I really like the artwork for this book with a more mature woman, though I doubt she is quite Pearl’s age of 60. Kudos!

An Older True Mate Story

Now as someone older I believe Peal’s voice sounds like an old granny...grandparents aren’t always old sounding or looking...so i think the Pearl on the cover is good! Pearl is the grandmother who raised two of the women who became mates to two princes. She owns a bar on earth, raised her granddaughters and wears leather and boots!
Assrie has nearly come to the end of his ability to live without a mate when Pearl enters his life.
What is fun is as older mates they don’t play all the games or angst over decisions as they have lived life.
Fun listen with the fantastic narrator!

Quick Listen

I noticed Pearl had a story and I almost lost it. Choosing Riley is literally one of my most favorite books. I loved Vox and Riley. Both characters were hilarious. I was literally laughing out loud when the story mentioned Vox's reaction when Pearl was kidnapped. I was sad that the story was so short but loved it.

Loved it!

As I was listening to the last bit of this book, I could not help laughing out loud. The way S. E. Smith writes the dragon-speak and the way David Brenin performs the different dragons is hilarious! This series of books has it all and I can't wait to see what's next.

🔥 unpatiently waiting for the next one. 🔥

I only have the twins left to listen to and I am trying to decide whether to go ahead and get that fix or try to wait until closer to the next release date. thankfully Pearl's Dragon and the last two Dragonling books filled in most of my gaps and I am ready for more. I know you can't rush a good thing right. I want more cats and Curizan please

Pearl's Dragon by S. E. Smith

This story was absolutely delightful! It brought smiles and sparkles to my eyes as I listened to it. Just one question though, what happened to the half dozen eggs after they hatched? We're that dinosaurs or what?? Hey, give us another story including their story too! Just to make it more interesting, add in the twins result in meeting their mate, more of the kids, and oh yea, add in the rest of the crew (good guys only. Leave out the bad one. You can always find new ones, unfortunately.) No kidding, I would love more of them! They gave me a great break in some paperwork that's depressing and got rid of my headache, especially when I could just lay back and thoroughly enjoy having it read to me by someone who's able to adjust their voice to the different characters! Thanks for a wonderful, delightful and enjoyable audio book!

Really laughed out loud

Great narration, my only complaint is Pearl’s voice sounds very much like Melina in book 7. Really laughed out loud at the audible version of this story. The humour comes through really well. BOOK REVIEW Ms Smith has spoilt her readers by including a bonus book about the mischievous, trouble finding, Dragonlings as well. I own and have read both these books before. I first read Pearl’s Dragon in the PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology where I found it enjoyable if not my favourite. The Great Easter Bunny Hunt was a gift from Ms Smith via her newsletter. Rereading these both again I have to admire how Ms Smith makes nonsense and whimsy into a great tale. Nice change to once again have a mature couple be the focus in a story. Pearl is the grandma you will either absolutely love and wish you had or hate to admit to being related too. She is a no nonsense, school of hard knocks lady. She raised Riley and Tina basically on her own whilst running a bar and did a fantastic job. I love her outlook on life and found her softness with Asim wonderful. Asim is a retired warrior. He spends his time in the mountain home of Mandra and Ariel looking after their house and the animals Ariel and their son Jabir collects. When he finally finds his mate in the human woman Pearl, his dragon and symbiot waste no time kidnapping her and flying back to his mountain home. So funny how his dragon and symbiot misbehave. What follows is a good easy read with a bit of action when baddies try to steal the animals, to keep us fans happy. Follow Pearl’s rules and you will do okay.
