Publisher's Summary

Eoin Grant hasn't encountered a female of his race in decades, and this crazy person's scent declares her unmated. Fate set her in his path, and he won't let this opportunity slip through his claws. No matter how wary she is of him. After all, how many chances does a dragon have at finding love? But fate can be a crueler mistress than his perfect mate. Of all things, she thinks she's human.

Business is taking off for Angie Weldon. She put her freakishly sharp nails to good use when she opened her back-scratching spa in downtown New Porter City. The local shifter community pounced on her skills, and she's knee-deep in shed fur. By the end of the year, if lucky, she could afford to move out of her crappy apartment.

Dollar signs flash before Angie's eyes when a dark, brooding stranger books her solid for a week, but she notices the possessive fury in his glare. She's been around enough shifters to know the look, and she won't go down that road again. Angie is literally swept off her feet by the intense shifter, and he wants more from her than she's willing to give. She figures it's best to avoid eye contact and back away slowly. Until he changes her life by insisting she's a dragon.

Good story, would prefer a different narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would but it wouldn't be my first choice as a recommendation. The narrator seemed to read/portray the dialogue differently than I had interpreted it when originally reading the book.

What three words best describe Diane Lehman’s performance?

Not my favorite performance. The book itself is great but the way the narrator portrayed the main character was a bit too annoying for me and I had to take frequent breaks when it got to be too much.

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

I highly enjoyed the story itself and would recommend reading the book instead over listening to it.

Whose Dragon?

Not His Dragon is an interesting and amusing shifter romance. Eoin, our hero, is an artist. He is also a dragon. Angie operates a “back scratching” salon for the area shifters. She is also a dragon, but thinks she’s human. They spend time together when Eoin hires Angie to tend to a problem with his scales. There is definitely an attraction. All Eoin has to do is persuade Angie she is a dragon, teach her the fundamentals, convince her that they are mates, and fight off the competition (females dragons are in short supply). Easy - not.

With a cast of quirky characters and a storyline somewhat different from the usual shifter romance, Not His Dragon was truly entertaining. Eoin and Angie are the perfect fit. The secondary characters are great. I really like Viktor, the Vampire tattoo artist.

I really enjoyed Diane Lehman’s narration. She absolutely nailed Zachary’s “I’m Mr. Suave and Debonair” voice and attitude.

Fun filled dragon romance

Eoin has lived alone for decades and has resigned himself to a solitary life. Angie is a human with shifter blood who owns her own business and has vowed to never date a shifter again. After one contentious meeting (and one good sniff!) Eoin can’t get enough of Angie. Through a series of twists and turns and surprises, their story plays out in a delightfully light-hearted and heartfelt way. The narrator is wonderful and made the story come alive. I received an advance copy of this story and chose to leave an honest review.

Laughing at dragons, fun listen.

Would you consider the audio edition of Not His Dragon to be better than the print version?

I would say that the audio edition is equal to the print version. Both are funny. I read the entire book before listening to the audible book. This version was all the book plus allowed me to do other activities as well!

What did you like best about this story?

Angie is a wild woman going for it all without any backup. I love to hear/read strong female characters that stand on their own. She felt like a neighbor or a coworker with the all normal choas but turned into fun exasperation and aspirations. Eoin sounded just as I had imagined him, slower, deep thinking artist and clueless of everyday experiences that he skips out on needing to deal with as he is a dragon. A man who goes for his interest even knowing that she can get by without him just fine. Strong enough that a strong female character doesn't get minimized to stand him taller.

Have you listened to any of Diane Lehman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first time listening to her. I have listened to many audiobooks but they have had male performers, I would absolutely listen to other books that she has done. It was very odd for the first few chapters as my experiences were with male voices but she ran with it and did an excellent performance. I forgot that it was her reading as I was pulled into the story.The start was a little rough with some of her character voices needing refinement (Laronzo) but she did get them rolling and they didn't even catch my notice when they were brought back later in the book.

Any additional comments?

I've not been listening to romance books but will love to hear the next in this series.

Sweet Dragon Romance

This was a really sweet and hot PNR. Angie & Ian were both lonely and in need of love. They both had issues they needed to overcome before finally getting their happily ever after! Definitely recommended.
I received an arc for my unbiased review of Not His Dragon.

Perfect diversion from real life

This was the perfect book to start off in audio for the series! Okay, it's also the first in the series. BUT, OMG! You have to listen to this, it will leave you in a perfect mood. Have a commute to work – listen to this! Have house work - listen to this!, Have family you want to ignore - listen to this! The narrator, Diane Lehman, brought the perfect inflection and tone to life. Just as it would sound in my head if I were to read it myself.

And the book, what a riot! A mean ol' dragon that that wants to be loved for his art meets his match with a sassy business woman. Angie is perfect as the woman who is just getting by, doesn't need anyone to give her any crap & doesn't want someone to see any of her real issues. Her spunk and level of sarcasm are just perfect to take on a dragon.

I felt a connection to Angie from the opening lines. After all, her day started much like a normal morning rush that we all contend with everyday! From that point forward, I kept cheering for her and could certainly see how "life gets in the way" This was a fun romp with hawt shifters, misunderstandings, and flip-flops.

Feisty, fiery & fun read.

Love the audio version of this book. Diane Lehman breaths life into every character & gives them each their on voice. Angie is a spitfire woman who refuses to let shifters run all over her, including a certain dragon shifter. However circumstances will throw them together and from there feelings, heat & love build.

Adorable and Fun !!!

What made the experience of listening to Not His Dragon the most enjoyable?

This is one of those amazing books you immediately know you’re going to love! From the first page, I was laughing continuously at the crazy events of her morning – all too familiar when you’re having a bad day! Her day continues to get worse, but the listener will love how Angie handles things. She’s perky, sassy, and a very strong woman! Eoin is likewise a powerful character. He’s crabby and gruff, yet is quickly “subdued” by the energetic Angie! I definitely recommend this audiobook (and the series, actually) for pure enjoyment! You won’t be sorry! The audiobook is absolutely fantastic! The narrator is excellent with giving each character a voice that fits them perfectly, and the pace and tone of the story is captured exactly right in her narration! You will definitely enjoy this one!

Angie Weldon was startled by the piercing blast of a fire siren which caused her to spill her coffee down her clean work clothes, shattering the mug on the floor! Smoke poured out of her second-hand toaster (whose timer and eject spring were broken), and her charcoal flaming toast dropped on last week’s newspaper. Of course the newspaper immediately burst into flames and she smashed the toast with a wet dishtowel – oops, not a dishtowel, but her yoga pants! She grabbed her ringing cell phone to find that her 8:00 appointment was waiting for her and she was 20 minutes from work! Putting on a dirty t-shirt, she ran out the door.

Eoin was getting coffee when he read an article about his art work. The art critic said it lacked emotion and depth. He stormed out the door to the gallery and accosted Lorenzo, the gallery manager and art dealer who had his art on display. Lorenzo finally admitted that when he looked at the art, he felt nothing. Art should make you feel some level of something! Disgusted, he left and strode across the street. He had given an angry glare to a woman running down the sidewalk and he deliberately stepped in front of her. She ran into him, after her flip-flops bent under and her toes were scraped and bloody. He then held her there despite her protests. She pulled out pepper spray and sprayed his face, then ran so fast her feet barely touched the ground.

Angie’s business was a back-scratching service for shifters. Her client was not pleased at being kept waiting. She didn’t even have the time to wipe the soot off her face and clean the ketchup off her shirt. She was sweating and had not put on deodorant – and all her clients were shifters who would get the full scent. Oh boy.

Eoin in the meantime was trying to heal his burning eyes. He hated to be delayed in pursuing the woman, but he had her scent and she couldn’t hide from him. After all, it had been over 100 years since he had last seen a female of his kind!

When Eoin followed her scent into her workplace, he had her assistant call her out to talk to him. Ryota, the wolf shifter alpha whom she had once dated, followed her out. He told her Eoin was a dragon. Eoin said she was trespassing on his territory and he would escort Angie and her mate elsewhere. Mate? There was no mate? Ryota spoke up to point out that humans did not have to follow the supernaturals’ laws. But Eoin wanted to speak to her in private, and Ryota would not protect her. She would need to find a way to apologize to the dragon and still keep some part of her dignity. What was Eoin’s next step? Angie was unmated, and a she-dragon, although she still didn’t realize it! Could he stay away from her? Or could they have a future together?
