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. . .
It’s not too often that books that have been majorly hyped live up to my expectations, but Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison does that and more! I absolutely loved this book from start to finish and was hooked from the very first page.
Pia, half-wyr, is on the run after being blackmailed into stealing from a powerful dragon that has existed since creation. Unfortunately for Pia, she doesn’t get far when Dragos finds her and hunts her down. But finding himself intrigued by the girl and trying to recall her unusual and alluring scent, he spares her life and claims her for his own. Although Pia rebels against the very idea of belonging to someone, she still finds it hard to resist the awe and attraction she has for the ancient Dragon.
Love, love, loved this book! Dragos and Pia were made for each other. She’s a strong female lead who is quite clever and pretty damn brave. Although Dragos was this formidable guy, who has existed forever, she doesn’t cower to him and really handles him well. She’s smart, savvy, and really fast with the quips and verbal jabs. Pia definitely has some grit to her and is my kind of heroine.
And I have to say I kind of adore Dragos. I loved that he was so solid and unyielding in all his ways and dealings, except when it came to Pia. Pia drew out the Dragon’s human side which gave him a vulnerability that I found charming. With an almost 7 foot man, who is a billionaire, and has existed since the beginning of time, you just don’t expect to see that. Can I just say I LOVE tall men…and really tall….I’m a fan! He was so…oooh! I can’t even describe the awesomeness of Dragos.
Beyond the characters, the plot was nicely paced and the story was well written. The author creates a bit of a family atmosphere with the characters employed by Dragos. I love how accepting of Pia they are once she shows them she is not made of fluff. In it we explore present day America just living amongst wyr-kind with ripples that allow wyr-kind to travel to what is called the “Other Worlds”. I will say I would have liked to know more about the Other worlds, the origins, and how they came to be living amongst humans. I’m hoping the author will explore these things in the book to come.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to get into the rest of the series. I loved some of the men who flanked Dragos, so I’m hoping we’ll get some of their stories next.
