Publisher's Summary

Dragon Shifter Novel

Dragon shifters are a dying breed. There are so few females left that if drastic measures are not taken, and soon, it'll be over for the species. The threat of extinction looms.

King Blaze finally accepts that there is no other option but to evoke an age-old tradition. The Hunt.

The eligible dragon shifter males must hunt a handful of females. It's first catch, first serve. The biggest problem is that the females are human. Despite feedback to the contrary, Coal thinks they are weak and breakable. In his opinion, not capable of surviving the hunt, let alone the mating that will follow. He doesn't believe that a lowly human is capable of birthing him a royal heir, so why has his brother, the king, tasked him with claiming one?

He can't believe this is happening to him. Especially when most of the males in their tribe are willing to accept one of these puny females. Not him. He's never rutted with one and doesn't have any desire, whatsoever, to rut with one in the future, let alone mate and impregnate one. Claiming one of these females will not be an easy feat considering there are three other dragon tribes vying for the opportunity. How the hell is he supposed to do all of this when he doesn't want to come within a mile of one of these unsavory creatures? Guaranteed HEA!

The story contains strong sexual themes/language and is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

VERY EROTIC

Royal Dragon had so much potential. The premise of the storyline is a good one. But the story is only one dimensional. The story is under developed and so are the characters. With that said I did enjoy it. This is a very erotic story and I really liked the H/H. I will read the next book in the series in hopes that the storyline is more developed.

Narrators were OK but they needed to let the female narrator do all of the female speaking parts and the Male Narrator do all of the male speaking parts instead of each one reading a chapter.

Too vulgar, not enough character development

The story had potential but didn't reach it. If you just want to read about the characters sex and how big it is then I suppose it's okay. If you are you looking for a story you might try elsewhere.

Female character.....?

I like a strong female lead, but I found this one to be annoying. I don’t like females who always think they are always right, no matter the situation, no one is that perfect or knowing

Dragons have a mate hunt using human females.

Coal is a fire Dragon Prince under orders from his brother the king to claim, mate and impregnate a human female. Coal believes humans are weak so he's not really happy about the hunt. One of the captured women is determined to escape. Coal is impressed with Jilly's anger and self reliance. He sets his sights on her and does capture her. She is a real fighter, and manages to stab him in the back with a stick, but he gets her back to his lair. She fights him about everything, no matter how unreasonable it is. He begins to have feelings for her but she does not yet trust him. She's pretty unrealistic. She believes the lies the Dragon women told the girls being hunted even though there is proof they are untrue. I feel sorry for Coal. He is sincere and she's an immature harpie.

Trying new genre, wow

Thought I'd try this book because Sebastian York is the narrator. I must admit I enjoyed the story very much and plan on getting next book in this series. Ok, if I'm totally honest SY narrates the next one also but I am intrigued with these royal dragons!

Human females: helping save dragons from extinction, since 2016

Julie is down on her luck, but doesn't expect to be dragged off by a dragon and forced to run in the Hunt. Coal is a Prince of the Flame Dragons who is ordered into the Hunt for a female by his brother and King, Blaze. The competition for these few human females is fierce; they may be all that stands between the dragons and extinction. And that's about as deep as this book gets. Having said that, its fine for when you want that total escape read - when you don't want to engage your brain.

Bloom is fine as a narrator. Really like York's voice, period. But - I'm so used to hearing it with a contemporary story, that I don't know how to feel about him reading a "paranormal".

Great Book

Royal Dragon is a really good book. Charlene Hartnady is a new author to me but this won't be the last book I read from her.

Not great

I actually bought the 2nd book before I listened to this one otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. I just felt like the entire story, if you can call it that, was about fitting his extremely big junk into her tiny trunk. On the upside... the next book is sooo much better! It has a story!

Well....

I know I may get flack for this but I think they could've left Sebastian out of this one. Stella out performed him. I am all for the York train believe you me but for some reason he didn't bring it this time. I found myself distracted by his portrayal of the female lead and even the male. A little on the monotone side actually. Maybe he wasn't into the work ,Idk but I was disappointed with it. I actually checked to see if he narrated book two and when I seen he was i cringed😖. Dang it!
