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

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.

Loved it!

Loved the story! The ending definitely leaves you with wanting more. The chemistry between Julie and Coal is unmistakable and their love for one other builds throughout the story, which makes it easy to become engulfed with this book.

Kind of Blah

Any additional comments?

I love Sebastian York and PRN. So, I thought this was going to be a fantastic book. It wasn't only not fantastic. It was just blah. The story was rushed, characters were not developed at all. The story started out strong, and then, suddenly half-way through, it felt like the author just wanted to finish it and rushed it to the climax and end.

Even with Sebastian York, I wouldn't bother with this book.

***fire Dragon***

I have read this since it came out on digital form so I decided to listen to it and wow its tottaly different, now I have a voice to put on the characters not just imagining it.
It helps that the narrators are excellent thanks to both Stella Bloom and Sebastian York.
