Publisher's Summary

Ariah Callahan was raised on tales of dragons and magic and a wonderful hidden realm. The fairytales ended when her father became estranged from her beloved uncle, and cold, hard reality set in. Surviving day to day as her father spirals into addiction and depression is all she can do. When the unthinkable happens, her uncle becomes her only hope.

Alazar Brandvold has made easygoing an art. He’s worked hard to ensure no one in the enchanted town of Nocturne Falls sees the tortured, serious soul inside the shameless gambler who is as quick with a laugh as he is to place a bet - which he invariably loses. The Firestorm dragon gets the wake-up call of his life when his Keeper comes out of hiding and shows him a treasure worth more than all the gold in his hoard.

And his race’s ancient enemy is hunting her.

He will have to risk everything in the ultimate gamble not only to claim Ariah as his lifemate, but to convince her that fairytales are real and that the damsel can save the dragon.

slow and at times just boaring

i love this series but this one was long drawn out and hard to listen to at times. the narrator was great as always but the story it self was good an fit into the series but, just to many off shots and extra side fluff. I had to make myself keep listening to it. I enjoyed it for what it was but i have to say this was not my favorite.

Dragon Gambles

A little disappointed in the story. It felt more like a Harliquin romance book. I loved the series, up til the last couple of books. I like a little more paranormal and mystery. I'm probably going to skip on the next book.

Couldn't even get through the first two hours.

{gag!} She falls for him at first meeting because she was born to be his life mate - no attempt to decide for herself, to object to his invading her privacy by reading her thoughts, to object to him touching her when he's a complete stranger, or to kick back against being essentially enslaved to him because of an accident of birth... I completely lost interest in what happened after that point, I can't bring myself to care what happens to a protagonist I've lost any respect for. The author obviously believes that being denied freedom of choice and enslaved to a good-looking man is something desirable, and that's just a world of wrong.

I only rated it as high as I did because it's a Nocturne Falls book which is a pretty appealing setting, and the narrator is fairly consistenly good.

Of course it's entirely possible that the poor misguided woman later comes to her senses and fights against the situation, but I going on the evidence of the first hour and fourty-something minutes, I doubt it, and I really couldn't bring myself to be bothered with listening to any more of it.
