Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.
As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul.
Sometimes I think I could be crowned the Re-Read Queen at Edgy. When I’ve got a lot going on or when I’m working on something that takes all my concentration, like now, new books can be all kinds of distracting so I reach for my old favorites. For some reason or another, I was banging around in my Nook app (which I rarely open anymore), and there was Dragon Bound. It was like finding a golden treasure of a comfort read that I’d buried and forgotten.
I have a huge soft spot for dragons to the point that after receiving my first ebook (a Nook) as a gift, I proceeded to download every dragon romance I could get my hands on. We all know I love my alpha-hole heroes, and dragons can be the grumpiest, growliest, alpha-holes ever with Dragos being the King of them all. He is everything a dragon should be: arrogant, demanding, badass, tough as nails and sexy as sin.
Pia, the heroine, is backed into a corner and forced to do the worst thing imaginable, steal from a dragon. Unfortunately for her things just go downhill from there. Pia won me over with her spirit, her guts, and her smart-ass mouth. She was able to surprise me with her reactions to just about every situation which just made the book that much better.
Their first meeting didn’t go well at all (well the in-person one, there was a dream world one that was hot!) but still the chemistry between them was off the charts. These two complimented each other well, with Dragos being the epitome of danger and violence and Pia being the exact opposite. She was the perfect mate for the big bad dragon able to not only stand up to him but calm him when he was about to explode.
Dragon Bound balanced world building and the romance at hand succinctly, introducing us to the world of the Elder Races without taking anything away from Dragos and Pia’s story. By the end, with all the heart-pounding action, elder race politics, and sexy, steamy chemistry I was in my paranormal nirvana and couldn’t have been happier.
