    4.5 stars Oooo, smut smut smut smut smut D Is it terribly shallow to admit that I snapped up this book because I heard there was hot whispers dragon sex in it I rarely read paranormal romances these days, but all of the reviews I saw for this book were raves, so I was wild with curiosity Besides, I have a serious weakness for shapeshifters, which has sometimes led to disastrous reads and sometimes led to really fun ones I m happy to report that in this case, the book than lives up to the hype The story is actually really good, and so well plotted that in some ways, I d say this is a lot closer to urban fantasy than your typical PNR there s as much focus on the story as there is on the relationship Pia, the central character, is very strong and principled When we first meet her, she s just been coerced into stealing from a powerful dragon lord Being a clever woman, she s stolen only a single penny, and she even left a note of apology in its place Dragos doesn t care, however, and comes after her with all the force of his formidable powers and bristling with outrage and fury Things begin to get interesting when they realize that Pia s coercion is actually part of a bigger political game between the Fae and the Elder Racesand when they discover their unwilling attraction to one another.And boy oh boy, is this relationship HOT Dragos is a very, um, masculine guy and he s overwhelmingly attracted to Pia The rumors of crazy dragon sex in this book were not exaggerated, but what I also love is that the relationship between them is portrayed with a great deal of respect and tenderness They re strong as individuals, but they re so great together that you really want them to overcome all their obstacles and get their happily ever after The secondary characters are also great, and the set up for the next book Storm s Heart is skillfully woven into the plot.Aside from a small bit of info dumping in the beginning, this is an exceptionally well written novel for the genre, and filled with humorous situations and hilarious one liners Several of my friends have pulled this out as a favorite quote, and I have to share it as well, because it just makes me giggle So is that your long, scaly reptilian tail or are you just happy to see me Tee hee hee How can you not laugh This is a book that isn t afraid to poke fun at itself, which is a nice change from all the paranormal books that take their own mythology so seriously Speaking of which, I also enjoyed the reveal of Pia s mysterious past and herpowers It was a fun surprise and perfectly done.If you re inclined to read this sort of book, I can t recommend this enough it s truly the best PNR book I ve ever read Every element that you could consider the story, the magic, the characters, the romance, the sex, the writing is absolutely terrific You really couldn t ask for a entertaining read.

    Why did it take me so long to discover this series Dragon Bound is the 1st book in Thea Harrison s Elder Races Series The world that she s created is unique, fun and so cool A world where shape shifters, vampires, dragons and humans all trying to live together.I loved this book It had everything I want in a story An unique and fresh plot, romance, tension, action, unforgettable characters, exotic settings and great dialogue.Dragos Pia are my new favorite fiction couple I adored them being together Their chemistry is filled with hot sparks and sexual tension..wow, off the charts Their interaction was really fabulous..the banter.I just loved their dialogue together. Dragos Cuelebre This is an incredibly dominant alpha male.and a gorgeous dragon too He s sexy, possessive and totally dangerous I am cursed with a terminal case of curiosity, he said I am jealous, selfish, acquisitive, territorial and possessive I have a terrible temper, and I know I can be a cruel son of a bitch Pia Giovanni Half Wyr, half human, but her animal form is a secret she keeps very well hidden A totally fabulous heroine..sexy, strong, funny, brave and not a doormat Not afraid to stand up to DragosI enjoyed the way their relationship developed through the story.There are so many incredible characters that are introduced and I can t wait to read their stories.Dragon Bound was absolutely fabulous and I am looking forward to reading the entire series.

    Dragon Bound was an awesome book I loved just about everything about it I m not even going to pretend that my favorite element wasn t Dragos, cause it was I have an unnatural attraction to possessive, jealous, stalkerific heroes who are scary as heck, and Dragos is going on my list of favorite heroes of this type I liked that although Pia started out as a thief who dared to steal from him, she became his own personal hoard He acted like a dragon of old, used to having his way in all things Even though he came on kind of strong, it was clear that he wouldn t do anything to hurt Pia He cared enough to make sure that Pia was happy He brushed her hair all the time He was actually a softie underneath all that hard scaly dragon armor Ms Harrison knows how to write this kind of hero very well Dragos is like a Harlequin Presents hero done well with an intensity times one hundred He is unbelievably wealthy, prominent and gorgeous He is also immensely powerful And he was done so well, there was never that incredulity factor where I have this sarcastic cheerleader moment in my head Yay, he is so awesome rolls eyes Dragos truly was awesome Sick girl that I was, I liked that even though Pia found him hot and fell in love with him, she could still see he was a scary guy Who doesn t like a guy who would give you the world, but he could also slaughter a whole army of enemies for you Who s so jealous, he doesn t even like his crew touching you PSA awareness moment Not okay in real life, but I like it in books So shoot me I thought the world building was really good I loved the fact that this book has a strong fantasy element, equal to the romance It wasn t just a backdrop for paranormal loving which was verra nice, mind you There was a lot of thought put into creating this world in which humans live alongside Wyr shapeshifters and Faerie folk of all kinds, and old magic is alive and well in this world, and into the adjacent magic realms It seemed eminently plausible that one of the most powerful economic figures could be an ancient dragon Don t I wish Dragos is an awesome hero, and Pia is an equally awesome heroine She is gutsy, intelligent, funny, and sweet She never gave me the urge to ignore her and focus on the hero because I didn t like her I loved her a lot I could see myself having similar reactions to the strange circumstances she faces I loved how utterly fearless although inwardly quaking she was when faced with the very scary Dragos, and especially at the end when she finds herself in a very rough situation I loved her self deprecating, humorous way of looking at the world, very down to earth and resourceful I loved her secret heritage, and how Dragos cherished that part of her, and all parts of her I felt tears brimming when she discovers what she truly is You have to understand that I was the little girl who was in love with Pegasus, Unicorns, and all mythical creatures It was a sweet moment for this little girl who has never truly grown up inside.I loved Dragos crew, especially Graydon who reminded me of Butch from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward , and Tricks a very hip elf who works as Dragos PR rep and happens to be the true heir to Throne of the Dark Fae How cool was it that his sentinels consisted of four gryphons and a tough female Harpy she reminded me of my girl Xhex from the Black Dagger books It was funny how Dragos came to life when Pia came around, and seeing how his crew reacted to the new Dragos I don t think my review can really add anything because there are some great reviews out there of this book I really did love everything about it It was just hip enough but not annoyingly so , the story and the fantasy elements were fantastic, there were many laugh out loud moments this book was really funny , and some poignant moments I loved the relationship between Pia and Dragos, and how they had to work at some things, but they weren t going to give up on being together view spoiler And my being a romance reader who likes babies, I was so happy that she even had that element Not enough PNR books have pregnancy and babies in them for me I know some readers hate that, but not me So I was glad she did have that in this book, and it was so cool how she did it Definitely some aww moments there hide spoiler

    You know what is totally awkward Listening to sexy books in audio format There was a really great moment while I listened to this one when a friend of mine got in the car, I turned on the engine, and the narrator said something along the lines of he caressed her breast as he pushed her legs further apart and I frantically tried to switch to the radio, stumbling all over myself and hitting all the wrong buttons Awkward City, population 1 Chalk that up as one reason I prefer listening to murder mysteries, YA, sci fi, and fantasy Also, it feels weird being turned on while I m driving around BAM How s that for TMI on Goodreads But you know what the ultimate libido killer is in books The scrunchie Oh, didn t you know Some contemporary authors are under the impression that despite the calendar reading 2011, we are somehow still living in the 1990s Bare midriff shirts Holy hell Pretty soon I m going to read a new release where the main character wears backwards overalls like Kriss Kross with one buckle undone, a hypercolor shirt, and Airwalks I don t want to harp on one tiny non issue because this book was loads of fun I initially started reading it with a friend but she blew past me because frankly, I ve been a sucky reader with the attention span of a caffeinated toddler as of late So I started it again as an audiobook and half listened, half read it the second time round I m a bit tired of fairies scratch that, totally tired of them but not at all tired of dragons yet so this worked really well for me Plus, there are several exciting Wyr kind in this book Gryphons Harpies Thunderbirds Goblins view spoiler A FRAKKING UNICORN hide spoiler

    Loved Dragos and Pia They meet after Pia achieves what no other has done before and steals from the Wyr leader She goes on the run and he catches than just his little thief The connection between the two was strong I loved Pia as a heroine because though she was physically weaker she was of strong conviction The story was full of great action, progressive plot development, and written well The characters are complex, unique, and pretty darn awesome The world that the writer has created is captivating I enjoyed this book and am SO glad it was recommended by a few friends 3 I am eternally grateful Safety No OW OM Sharing, though Pia s story starts off with ex boyfriend drama No rape abuse No condoms Neither were Vs.

    Buddy read with my MacHalo Freaks Warning my reviewing mojo is still AWOL This will therefore be a Super Crappy Review SCR I really didn t feel like writing it, and tried to get out of it by subcontracting to one of my ungrateful dear friends, but not a single one of these wimps lovely people felt up to the task So it s their fault if you have to suffer through this Piece of Crap PoC.Confucianism Confusion is me There usually are two possible outcomes when I read Freaking PNR Novels FPN 99,99% of the time, these delightful pieces of literature make me feel like this 0,01% of the time, a miracle happens I lose all judgement, and end up feeling like this Yeah, I get all pink and levitate and shake and stuff.Well that was until today Sorry, what was that I finished reading this FPN almost a month ago, you say Err, yes And your point is I shouldn t say until today, because technically it s until about a month ago, you say Oh bloody hell, would you get off my back for once Would that be too much to ask Please don t bother to answer that, I think I know what you re going to say sighs dramatically Some friends you are. Anyway, where was I Oh yes, the two possible outcomes and all that crap So the whole feeling either like this or like that thing lasted until the day I finished this book view spoiler happy now hide spoiler

    Dragos and Pia You took a 1962 penny, Dragos said His teeth were gritted You left a 1975 penny It s no replacement She stared at him Oh my God, it s scary you noticed that I know everything in my hoard and exactly where it is, he told her Down to the smallest piece You could go to a doctor, get checked out for OCD, she panted There might be medication for that His chest moved in a silent laugh My God I love Dragos And Pia You cannot find easily a couple so well matched in PNR.And how can you not love a book about a powerful dragon A book which starts with the stealing of a penny.Pia managed to infiltrate Dragos hoard and to steal a penny from him She did that in order to save her douche ex boyfriend by someone powerful unknown in the beginning who wanted something anything that belonged to Dragos Cuelebre, i.e The most powerful being on Earth A multi billionaire tycoon The boss of all the Wyrkind Someone who used to be considered a god by many old civilizations Born when the earth was formed and the sun shone with a different light The Great Beast.And now twenty five years old Pia Giovanni has managed to draw the ancient Great Beast s attention to her No one takes what is mine His growl reverberated through the ground He bared his teeth and bent down until he was nose to nose with her No one What Pia needs to realize really soon is that Dragos has already included her in his collection She is mine Dragos bared his teeth, gold eyes flaring to lava His growl shivered through the ground at her knees, and long fingers clenched on her wrist He tensed and began to rise The chemistry between Pia and Dragos is explosive There is not another entity in the world who would dare to act that way with me She froze and the blood drained from her face.His expression changed He held a stiffened finger under her nose and said, No I did not mean that as a threat Her lips trembled What did you mean then He laid a hand on her cheek It was so long it almost covered the length of her head You re mine, he said You can deny it, argue, throw fits, try to run away But You re Still Mine That s insane, she whispered I have no idea what that means I don t belong to you or anyone else Yes, you do, he told her His thumb stroked her lips You are mine and I will keep you I will not hurt you and I will protect you And you re beginning to trust me All of that is a good thing I am not a piece of property, damn it But you are in my possession She enunciated, I think you are a lunatic Since you are too, that works well enough Pia has many secrets Mainly she needs to trust Dragos enough and tell him what she really is And then Dragos will help her Dragos starts as a stubborn scary monster with OCD and as the book proceeds, he will melt for Pia.So this is an alternative world full of magic A world where the Elder Races and humankind had lived together openly since the Elizabethan Age.The Elder Races comprises of the Wyrkind, the Elves, both Light and Dark Fae, Vampires and Djinns Every book or less introduces an Elder Race.An amazing series I cannot recommend it highly enough If you love PNR, or Urban Fantasy or Fantasy in general, you need to try this series

    Wow I loved this one Dragon Bound was the best new paranormal that I have read in a long time, I am so glad to finally be excited about a new paranormal series.Pia Giovanni is forced to do something that is basically suicidal steal something from the most powerful dragon shifter in the world She knows Dragos will react swiftly, most likely with a torturous death for her but she has no choice because of a spell and blackmail from a sleazy ex boyfriend Dragos is an ancient Wyr dragon shifter who rules his kingdom with an iron fist He is not happy that someone managed to steal from his treasure and hunts the thief with a savage intensity However, he is intrigued with the wonderful scent on the note the female thief left behind.When Dragos catches up with Pia, their chemistry lights up the pages He is fascinated by this half breed human Wyr who dares to stand up to him They are both intensely attracted to each other, despite the fact Pia is afraid he is about to kill her Dragos decides right away that she belongs to him Despite Pia s protests that he can t just own a person, she is in for a losing battle against a powerful alpha like Dragos So she does what she can she stands up to him and fights his hold over her while occasionally giving into the intense passion between them This book was such a fun, exciting romance I loved Dragos, he was so alpha and possessive but he also tried to accommodate Pia and make her happy in his life of course Pia was a great heroine, she was strong and didn t just let Dragos run over her She had a lot of secrets but she had good cause to keep her silence Pia and Dragos were a great match and holy crap were they hot together Yowza I loved the story, it was exciting and well written.If you are looking for a great paranormal romance, make sure to check this one out It was a great story that I will be rereading in the future because I had a fun time reading about these characters Highly recommended
