Publisher's Summary

Teagan O’Shea is a rare female dragon-shifter leader. While her Irish clan has a tradition of female leaders, they have had to hide behind a public male face for centuries to keep the other clans from viewing them as weaker and attacking. When the truth leaks, Teagan is faced with a choice - hand over the leadership to a male or invite the challengers to a leadership trial and earn her place. Out to prove having a penis isn’t required to be a leader, she picks the latter.

Aaron Caruso is sent to Ireland under the guise of repairing relations between two clans on the isle of Ireland. However, upon arrival, he learns the truth. Determined to secure Teagan’s place so he can escape her alluring eyes and addicting personality, he busies himself with helping her any way he can. A female used him once, and he’s not about to go through that again, no matter how much the Irish female tempts him.

As the pair work together on preparations for the leadership trial, both Aaron and Teagan start to see each other in a new light. Both have their own self-imposed loneliness and yearn for something they can’t have. Can Aaron and Teagan not only change tradition but also open their hearts? Or will they each be doomed to live alone to fight their inner battles?

ARC Audio Review- Aiding the Dragon

Ok, I loved this story! My favorite part of this book is seeing a strong confident woman stand strong and find her happily ever after. Gary Furlong did a wonderful job narrating as well. Especially with the Irish accents. I did miss Matthew Lloyd Davies nack at giving the different characters (including the dragons) their own voices however. I had to rewind quite a few times to make sure I knew who exactly was speaking. plus I can usually multi task while listening and I found couldn't do that with this story. Overall though I think Mr. Furlong did very well with this, and I am looking forward to seeing how the future of the many other characters play out and see how past characters progress as well! I would definitely recommend this book!

Aiding the Dragon

Oh My This was so good , it was so full of exciting things that will make you feel like you are right in the middle of this book. The Dragon's of this series are so sexy and willing to do what ever it takes to help their females. Loved it. Cannot wait to see what happens next.

Aiding the Dragon.

Aiden wasn't excited at being sent to The Irish Clan. He'd met the female leader and while he told himself it had nothing to do with her leadership. Her gender was another thing. He didn't have a good opinion about any female dragon shifter except his mother. He has a history to warrant the feelings.

Teagan didn't appreciate his attitude. Her clan was alone in having a female leader. Even so, the rest of the clans believed her brother led. Aiden was just another cocky male who didn't think she was strong enough to lead. She knew she worked harder, took on more, and made a personal effort to deal with her clan than any other leader. Just once, she wished a likely male would see it.

Their dragons knew it wasn't gender discrimination. It had a lot to do with gender and hormones and the steam created when they were together. I really enjoyed the first challenge. The payback was an interesting beginning to their growing relationship.

The author has given us a dragon's eye view of a current day and reality in this enticing story. The characters are strong yet each has a soft center damaged by past relationships and fear of new ones. I loved their hedge to give into their attraction. The heat interspersed with teasing, threats, and one-up-manship. Watching them come to terms while dealing with danger, life threats, family issues, as well as the threat of leadership loss. Both characters are strong and fun and I loved them.

The narrator did a stellar job with the different accents and characters. He is not the one she normally uses and was so pleased he was just as good as her usual narrator.

I was delighted to know that there will be more coming up with the relationship evolving from this story in at least one future story. This is another gold medal winner from Jessie Donovan.

Aiding The Dragon by Jessie Donovan. Narrated by Gary Furlong
Gary Furlong a nice voice to listen too.
Aiding The Dragon is a great book

Aaron is helping Teagon he is attracted to her but he has demons to fight before he will act on the Attraction. While Teagon is Attracted to Aaron but the Attraction will distract her from the Challenge. This is a must read to see not only if Teagon Wins the Challenge and if Teagon and Aaron can overcome there demons and obstacles to find the love they deserve

Aiding the Dragon!!!!

Where does Aiding the Dragon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I absolutely adore this series. Gary Furlong has a wonderful voice and really brings the story to life. It is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how Jessie Donovan has created this world that sucks you in and makes you want to believe in dragons. I loved the banter and heat between Aiden and Teagan.

Which character – as performed by Gary Furlong – was your favorite?

For me it was both his performance of Teagan and Aiden. He has a wonderful voice and makes the characters believable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh out loud at times. I also didn't want to stop listening. Usually I only listen to audiobooks while I'm driving for work, but I found myself putting in my earbuds to listen while I was cleaning, or getting ready for the day. Generally any extra time I could fine I was listening.

Any additional comments?

This entire series is just wonderful. I have read all the books twice and listened to all of the audiobooks now. Jessie Donovan is a wonderful writer. This book was just awesome and I can not wait for more. If you like paranormal romance and looking for a unique story Jessie Donvan will make you fall in love with dragons!
