Publisher's Summary

Nikki Gray has reason to hate the dragon hunters - they brutally murdered one of her friends a year ago. Not only that, they have caused havoc on several of the British dragon clans, injuring countless individuals. Determined to defeat the hunters by kidnaping their leader, Simon Bourne, she teams up with a human male in the British Special Forces. After six months of work, they're finally ready to carry out their mission and capture Bourne. However, one kiss derails their plans and changes their lives forever.

At the request of his sister, Rafe Hartley agrees to work with the dragon-shifters. After all, the dragon hunters are a pain in his arse and the fewer of them, the better. The woman assigned as his Stonefire liaison, however, is the same one he hurt four years ago in Afghanistan. Pushing aside their past, they learn to work together. Yet with each passing encounter, he is drawn to the lively, stubborn woman. He finally gives in to his attraction and kisses the dragonwoman. What follows turns his life upside down.

Rafe and Nikki must now decide what to do with their futures. Can they still work together and find a way to capture Simon Bourne? Or, will their fated kiss result in a divide that can't be healed?

The Title is Perfect.

What made the experience of listening to Surrendering to the Dragon the most enjoyable?

I have listened to several of Jessie Donovan's Dragon stories after having read the book some time before listening. Once again, I loved it. Matthew Lloyd Davies is excellent with all the voices, including the dragon, who in this book is a female.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think her dragon, and especially if I can include Nickki since they are in the same body.

Any additional comments?

As always Ms. Donovan has gifted us with another can't-put-down-audio When I read the blurb I couldn't figure out how one lousy (or in this case hot as heck) kiss could change lives. Now I know. And ain't it grand? These two unlikely lovers are unique, stubborn, loyal and strong emotionally as well as physically. Both soldiers, I love the times Ms. takes Mr. down. It is so different with having the female dragon and the male human--what a wonderful story. They are so strong with heartbreaking histories getting to know each other has blockades that must be broken down. Watching the male dragons around Nikki try to stare down Rafe is both funny and rewarding to see him stand his ground. <br/><br/>The dangers to their love are legal and physical as well as emotional. The dragon Hunters brought them together, will they tear them apart or worse take their lives? The mate claim is strong, however, there is little time to recover with the missions pressing. How will they deal with the results? Their love story is touching and scary. Not only does Rafe have to win his lady love--she has a clan of dragons—the legal system against him. Is he up to the task? If he can win over Nikki's dragon he'll have a strong ally. And once again the dragon's internal conversations with her human is sometimes funny, sometimes profound and just good sense—when she isn't trying to get more sex. Yes, female dragons are just as sex-minded as the males. <br/><br/>Another opportunity to revisit some of our favorite old friends and make new ones. This is a not to miss audio as are all of Jessie Donovan books and audios. Enjoy this strong recommend.

Audible ARC Review-Surrendering to the Dragon

I do believe this is my favorite book so far! The narrator was wonderful, and although he does need to work on his different accents and there was a time or two that i2 wasn't sure if Rafe or Aaron were the ones talking, but those are minor things to me. The story itself for me was fast paced right from the beginning! I was actually finding things to do around my house so I could keep listening. I also loved that we are "listening to the children grow. I would recommend this book for sure, but also advise to listen to the previous books first.

adoption or not!

Nikki is a protector that just found out that the man who hurt her four years is her true mate. she doesn't want a child, afraid it would ruin her protector career. She figured Rafe won't want a child after he was so cruel to her four years ago, so she figured get the mate claim frenzy over with then give the child up for adoption. Turns out Rafe wants the child.

Will Nikki and Rafe keep the child and find happy ever after without killing each other.

Matthew Lloyd Davies really knows how to narrate, he just adds so much to the story.

Love this series

Would you consider the audio edition of Surrendering to the Dragon to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version so I can't compare.

Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I think he's ok. I would have loved the series even more than I do now if it featured a female narrator for the female speaking roles.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This is a stupid question

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this installment just as much as the rest. It's always a fantastic listen. I hate that I have to wait so long for the next one but the great thing about this series and all the spin off is there will always be a new character to write about so I will have many more books to look forward to. Just please add a female narrator for all the female parts. The male and female can work in tandem.
