Pages: 467

Gwenvael is a dragon that is on a mission to get an alliance with the one that is fearfully known as “The Beast”. He goes to the merciless Northlands in the hope of getting what his family needs. Gwenvael is also out to prove to his family that he has more worth than they give him credit for. He is willing to risk what he sees as his good looks and to show them that he is as chivalrous as he claims. When he finally meets the Beast he is in for a shock that he never expected and now he has to come up with a completely different plan on how to handle this newest situation.

Dagmar Reinholdt is known throughout the Northlands as “The Beast”. Dagmar hides behind plain robes and spectacles that makes most people disregard her and ignore her most of the time. She knows how to hide in plain sight and makes sure that most people don’t look too closely at her and completely underestimate what she is capable of. Now she has to deal with Gwenvael who seems to see a lot more than most do and she isn’t sure exactly how to deal with him but she is smart and she knows that she will figure out the best way to deal with this latest situation.

Gwenvael has another shock in store for him when Dagmar seems to be completely unaffected by his good looks and the charm that has managed to win over more women than he can remember. That just makes him more determined to find out what is under Dagmar’s robes and behind her spectacles. Gwenvael is suddenly enjoying the challenge that Dagmar is providing him with and Gwenvael is having more fun than he thought was possible. He also just might have found the one woman that has the ability to tame Gwenvael and who just might be his mate. This makes Gwenvael determined to keep Dagmar as his own.

This is another great story by this author. She is always one to read if a reader wants a book guaranteed to make them laugh. Her characters are always a lot of fun to read and get to know. The situations that they find themselves in usually by their own actions are always a blast to read and watch them try and get themselves out of each situation. Some of them can be quite ridiculous and will have the reader eagerly turning the pages just to find out what is going to happen next at any given time. While this is part of a series and the reader would get a lot more back story by reading the whole series it can be read as a stand alone. This is one that is worth picking up and reading.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
